    Great posts Dustin and Flo.

    On Flo's comment. I see guys using our multi-angle pulley machine. It has the set up where you can adjust the height of the pulley via a pull-pin arrangement. It's also a double ratio pulley. That means of the 'huge' 37.5-kilo (I think) stacks they are doing, at best 20-kilos if they use the whole thing.

    Meanwhile I'm trying to use the WHOLE Lat Machine stack. It's 120-kilos and (due to the set up) I'd be using 80-kilos. You can guess which will mean bigger arms on pressdowns. All things being equal strong is big.

    Training Tip No4
    Research, research and yeah... research
    And by that I don't mean 10 minutes on google. There's a TON of podcasts, videos and article right here on Evo. Use the search function too. Dylan's posting videos almost every day. Read, listen and watch.

    Stevesmi posted yesterday that he reads something every day. I do the same. We're what are called Vets. We've been doing this a LONG time. Muskate - training to get a medical degree. The other mods too. If we're still learning then everyone needs to learn. So research, research and yeah... research

    Training Tip No 5
    21's aren't just for biceps
    So called 21's where you do 7 reps at the bottom half of a movement, seven at the top half and then seven full range reps over the whole range of movement are a common enough training trick for biceps. But you can do them for a LOT of other movements. And if you haven't done them for biceps give them a try too!

    Examples where youcan feel it well are leg extensions, some back exercises, calves and so on

    I've a TON from years of training, reading books and magazine, watching movies and even talking to the writers themselves.

    Here's an easy one to start with:

    The speed of the rep
    If you're a bodybuilder or looking to grow muscle (which means you are) then try slowing down the reps speed. It doesn't need to conform to the so-called Super Slow protocol but slowing each individual rep a little means the time muscles are under tension is longer. Which for muscle growth, all things being equal, is better.

    Give it a try
    really great point brother, something i have believed in and practiced for a very long time... i had a really good time under tension video up previously that i have will have to do again... great advice bro

    Start out using the trainer. These are difficult to master

    For No1 you can use dumbbells

    For No 3. Forget it. Randall @ Ironmind make awesome products but there's a bunch of YouTube videos where you can learn how to make a wrist roller from either a broomstick (so a 1-inch diameter or so) or a rolling pin (about 2-inch - which I'd recommend). Like $5 tops

    For No5 there's a TON of companies. GHP, HeavyGrips (good for most users) and more. There's companies in Korea, the Ukraine and Russia now as well as others. My preference is for David Horne's Vulcan cos it replaces 20+ grippers.

    Training Tip No6
    Getting more from the Bench Press
    So when Arthur Jones did his bulletins he came up with a minor tweak. I'll add another two (one of which I might re-use it as another tip).

    Tweak one is to elevate one end of the bench about 4 to 6-inches. Like say 10-degrees. It shifts emphasis to the mid pec portion and so is a better all round developer. On his old multi angle machine (chest and pec flye) that's there they were set (10 degrees). It works well for both barbell and dumbbell.

    Tweak two (works on a barbell bench - any position). Take your usual grip (narrow, medium or wide), squeeze and then, as you do each rep, gently try to pull your hands together. Do it from the stretched to contracted or full extension position and back. It's a killer.

    Tweak three (the one I might re-use): Flex as you press and lower the bar or dumbbells (this works for them too). Squeeze the pecs into the gap. You can get a gym buddy / coach / trainer / someone you trust to gently touch the pecs with a fingertip and you squeeze the muscle against them (so you can't relax at any point).

    Training Tip No7
    The Clothing Trick
    This is an old-school trick I know a few of the golden age lifters used. When training a weak body-part they'd cover everything else but leave the weak part exposed. So Arnold cutting the bottom of his tracksuit to expose his calves and so on. Even if they aren't weak having the part you're working visible focuses the mind.

    Training Tip No8
    Get the pyramid right
    Here in the UK we have a phrase from wayyyyy back in the day which goes 'don't put the cart before the horse'. I'm reminded of that when I see guys think they can't train (even beginners) without drugs. Yet the reality is, even if you're an out and out fkin freak, the LEAST amount of time you should train before steroids is 2 years. And those two years should be like you're in prison or a monk. Meals on time, lights out on time, training 100% every time. Even then Evo's advice is ALWAYS gonna be don't use gear until you hit the right age (not 18 then).

    When you see (and you do see them) average looking guys discussing peptide use the 'cart's' way out in front. The TOP of the pyramid is insulin, peptides, GH and so on. Not the bottom. What's the point of using pro and competition drugs to 'look good on the beach' If your diet is crap, if training is half-assed then FORGET the tip top stuff.

    Get the basics right first
