    Review of WBB article

    I'm trying a new routine for a little change-up.

    It's posted here:
    http://www.wannabebig.com/article.php?articleid=146

    I find that if I go for 75% of my 1RM that I can't do 8 reps.

    I suspect I might not be warming up enough.

    These small problems aside, is this a good workout to improve strength, or will it be overworking these big muscles, or underworking other areas?

    I'm used to working each body part 1x per week (chest/tris, back/bis, legs/abs, and shoulders/traps/grip)

    I'm alternating traps/grip on monday, abs on wed and calves on fri.

    It actually should say "6-8 reps."

    Also the FAQ should be coming out by this Friday. It should help, if not just pm me or post a question about it in the WBB routine forum.

    It's meant to increase the three main lifts and revolves around the meat and potatoe lifts.

As it is, it is no longer I myself who do it, but it is sin living in me. I know that nothing good lives in me, that is, in my sinful nature. For I have the desire to do what is good, but I cannot carry it out. For what I do is not the good I want to do; no, the evil I do not want to do--this I keep on doing. Now if I do what I do not want to do, it is no longer I who do it, but it is sin living in me that does it.
    So I find this law at work: When I want to do good, evil is right there with me. For in my inner being I delight in God's law; but I see another law at work in the members of my body, waging war against the law of my mind and making me a prisoner of the law of sin at work within my members. What a wretched man I am! Who will rescue me from this body of death? Thanks be to God--through Jesus Christ our Lord!"

    Yeah, I like it. I'll just add on the little things like calves, abs, and grip.

    Thanks for the post, and that does make sense.

    Can you post a link to the FAQ on this thread? I'll hold of on any other Q's until then.

    Man, that workout really gets you.

    I did one day and was really tired at the end of it. THIS WORKOUT IS NOT FOR THE WEAK! I can see that it would definately help anyone get past any plateau that they're facing.
