Is there any reason why you have difficulties walking ? Is it because you have legs problems?

I like jogging. Clears my head. My neighborhood is so quiet and no one's ever around so I can't wait to jog when there weather stops producing constant snow storms.

I start off with doing my set strength workout for the day(I have 3-4 different set for different days) I have no preference on my favorite set or muscle group.

one example day is:

deadlift
pull ups
pendlay row
hammer curls
barbell curls
rope pulls

this usually takes about 30-40 mins to complete, and straight after, I go swimming, at moderate intensity, mixing up techniques for about 30-40 minutes.

I do this every other day(except the weekend, since I usually use 3-day sets in a week), but I do the swimming workout every day, with higher intensity on the days without strength workouts.

I guess my favorite session is this entire session layout, as it works really well for me and feels great afterwards.


Sounds fun! If you don't mind my asking, why do you have the curls in there? Not that there's anything wrong with curls, but your biceps are already getting hit by every other exercise you're doing except deadlifts, and it might be beneficial for you to incorporate a pushing lift of some kind.


On topic, my favorite exercise is probably full cleans. I'm not currently doing a full workout do to time constraints, but cleans are fun, so I occasionally go perform them.

use to have serious rheumatoid osteoarthritis since i was a young kid which prevented me from walking much its been awhile since it was active now so I've managed to improve my ability to walk and such though i still have some of the damage and such from when it was active still which does makes it so can't really get to the same level of fitness and such that healthy person would have

He probably is doing push / pull splits where one day is dedicated to all pushing movements (squats, bench presses, overhead presses) and the day he listed is his pull day.

I've done a similar set up and it's great because it lends itself to allowing for a higher training frequency (as opposed to the standard bro routine of chest day, back day, shoulder day, arm day, etc. where it usually takes a full week before you are able to hit that part again).

As for the curls, I'm a believer in direct arm work. You're only as strong as your weakest link and if the secondary movers in the exercise are strong, then the core lift will benefit. Also, if aesthetics is the goal, it can be very difficult maximize arm development exclusively with compound movements like presses and rows. There are exceptions to this but they are few and far between.

WE'RE ALL ABOUT programming, plans, routines and protocols. After all, it's the only way to really track your goals and progress, right? Everyone tells you, "set a goal, do your research, build a plan and follow it through." A perfect example of this was our Transformassacre Part I and Part II. Our subjects established a goal for themselves, they were given a carefully crafted program including both dietary, training and lifestyle guidelines. What happened? Their goals were achieved. Yes, planning and routine works.

Same here. My forearms do not grow at all unless I hit them directly. Doing direct arm work really brings out the definition that you wouldn't normally get otherwise.

That makes a lot of sense. I missed the part where he said he has different workouts for different days, and assumed this was his full-body routine since he appears to be strength training every other day.
