    Fongtu got a reaction from EpicSquats in What's to stop Covid-19 spreading to nearly everyone?   
    I've read somewhere that the cases where they tested positive after being discharged, is down to one of the drugs they were giving out in China and Japan that supressed the symptoms, so doctors thought they were over it, discharged, then the symptoms just came back again.

    Yeah exactly that mate me and the wife and even our younger kids to a certain extent could do without if sh!t really hit the fan but that stuff is critical for babies. Government and shops should enforce  limits.

    Yeah we are struggling to find any formula here for my 6 month old, we have a few stocked up bit literally every single shop around here has none, even pharmacies dont have any. Struggling to get nappies and wipes as well, I don't mind going without for a while but when its an innocent baby then it boils my piss. There is no reason to be panic buying anything and the dumbfucks who are doing it should have it all taken off them.

    Fongtu got a reaction from swole troll in Creating your own program... It's not that difficult   
    I think its interesting how everyone responds differently to different training methods, I really don't think there is one superior method as long as someone is pushing themselves.
     
    I know people who respond amazingly to the P/P/L progressive overload methods, but for me it really didn't do much. HIT low volume training to absolute failure for a couple of months and I can already see the improvements. Then you have the people who, in my opinion have superior genetics, who respond amazingly to higher volume 'pump' style training.

    I have recently moved from P/P/L to a more 'bro split', wasn't a fan of PPL as i feel it allows for certain bodyparts to lag and fall behind. I like to train lower volume, high intensity.
     
    I do have a week A and week B, just switch between incline/flat focus and back width/thickness focus etc... but still the same idea
     
    Chest and Biceps
    Flat DB press: 1 x 6/8, 3 drop sets to failure
    Incline BB press: 2 x 8/10
    Incline DB fly: 1 x 10, SS into DB press to failure
    Flat machine press: Rest pause, 10-8-6 reps
    BB Curl: 2 x 10
    Single arm preacher: 1 x 12 with forced reps and negatives
    DB curl: 3 stage drop set
     
    Quads
    Leg extension: 3 stage drop set with 1 rest pause set
    Leg press: 1 x 6/8, 1 x 15
    Hack squat: Rest pause, 10-8-6 reps
    BB Squats: straight reps to 40
    Seated calf raises: 3 x 25
     
    Shoulders and Triceps
    DB shoulder press: 2 x 8/10
    Side raise: 3 stage drop set
    Upright DB row: 1 x 8/10
    Machine Shoulder press: Rest pause, 10-8-6 reps
    Rope extension: 2 x 10/12
    Overhead extension: 1 x set to failure with 2 second hold at negative
    Single arm extension: 2 x 10/12
     
    Hamstrings
    Lying Leg curl: 1 x 6/8, 1 x 10/12
    DB stiff leg: 2 x 6/8
    Hyperextension: Bodyweight to failure x 3
    Seated leg curl: rest pause 10-8-6 reps
    Adductor/Abbductor: SS to failure
     
    Back
    DB/Cable pullover: 2 x 8/10
    High row: 1 x 6/8
    Seated Machine row 1 arm: 2 x 6/8

    8-9 Weeks is not very much time at all to be cutting into a show, you want to be ready 2 weeks out as well so you only really have 16 weeks.
     
    If i were you i'd start cutting now but only lower calories by a small amount and moniter from there, your goal for a prep shouldnt be to grow and add size.

    Fongtu got a reaction from Bigeffindavie in Do you change your training style for a cut?   
    I wouldn't change your training style, only thing that you should keep an eye on is if your are still recovering, if you aren't then maybe drop the volume slightly. But I like to think that what built the muscle, keeps the muscle.
     
    Adding cardio is fine but try to keep it away from the workout.

    Fongtu reacted to Hong Kong phooey in Do you change your training style for a cut?   
    I don't change my training style when cutting.I agree with the above.heavy weight is what built the muscle and heavy weight is what will keep it there.it's inevitable that you'll lose a bit of strength as you lose fat and as you cut your calories.but the best way to offset losing too much muscle is to train as heavy as you can and as hard as you can.
    The only difference when on a cut is I add in extra cardio,and just go to failure.I don't do forced reps,negatives,rest pause,static holds etc.as there's more chance of incurring an injury when you're low on calories,energy etc.
    I use a low volume/high intensity approach to training on the lines of Mike mentzer,dorian yates etc.

    Fongtu reacted to swole troll in Genetics reign supreme   
    I've touched on this subject before in the "Stop looking for the secret... It's not that difficult" thread but saw a recent post regarding why a certain poster wasn't looking the way his favorite instagrammers looked and thought I'd touch on the subject of genetics again. 

    Why don't you look like your favorite bodybuilder, mens physique, magazine model, instagrammer ect 

    lighting? angles? pump? drugs? 
    in a lot of cases most are tweaking all of these variables in their favor (many over doing) and still coming up short

    the reason being is genetics. And unfortunately the card you've been dealt isn't always the one you desired (rarely is in some form or another)  

    "You can't coach a St. Bernard to win against a Greyhound on the racetrack"

    that is no matter how hard you try, disregard your health, disregard every other aspect of your life and focus exclusively on your goals you will only excel as far as your genetics allow.

    Hell I'm a prime example of this. Highly passionate about powerlifting, cursed with long femurs, long torso and disproportionately short arms, arguably the worse possible proportions for powerlifting but this doesn't stop me trying to be the best I can at it because I just enjoy progressing and knowing that every PB I hit is the strongest I've ever been at that lift.

    Genetic short coming is no reason to not give it your all as even if you had the genetics you think you desire there is no happily ever after with lifting

    I've not met a single person that said they were 100% content;

    you bench 2 plates, you want to bench 3
    you reach 10% body fat, you want to reach 8% 
    you weigh 220lb with abs, you want to weigh 240lb with abs

    so just learn to enjoy the journey as you will be improving year on year if you do everything right.

    Alternatively just quit so then you have a weak mind to match your s**t genetics

    Fongtu reacted to SuperSi in bulk powders fined   
    I used to post on here a reasonable amount 10-15 years ago. I'm the Commercial Director at Bulk Powders. 
    I wanted to provide some context to the recent prosecution; the press release is a little misleading, as it suggests the prosecution was to do with the nutritional value of the products. That's not the case; all products were tested and found to meet label claim (two had more protein than labelled; one had more fibre, It was natural batch variance on nut butters). 
    It was to do with statements on the product descriptions. For example, we said that Pure Whey was low carb. It is low sugar (5g sugar per 100g), but technically there is no European approved claim for low carb. Similarly, we said 'high bcaa.' There's over 5g BCAA per serving (this isn't in doubt), but technically there's no European approved high BCAA claim. 
    The protein element was on a handful of nut butters. We used a 'source of protein' claim, based on the grams of protein per 100g. For example, Hazelnuts have 16g protein per 100g. However, the claim should be based on % energy. When the product was tested, it had 19g protein per 100g and 11.4% energy from protein.  The threshold for source of protein is 12%. 
    Clearly we've made some technical errors, which were changed long ago. However, the test results from Trading Standards showed that what was in the product is what was on the label. For those of you that have been members for some time, there used to be a thread where a group of members tested loads of different brands for protein percentage and amino spiking. We were consistently one of the leading brands for label accuracy (quite possibly the top brand, if I remember correctly) and nothing has changed.

    the ‘breathe easy’ yoke is interesting as it feels like you’ve chewed a full pack of airwaves. I’m not entirely convinced of its ability to open your nose up after a few sample packs but it was enough to make me re-order

    Luke Sandoe does coaching and he is based in your area, sure he trains in Crayford weights. I know someone who used him earlier this year and got good results.
     
    James Llewellin is a good shout, he is based in wales so not really local but he likes to keep things simple which suits me, ill be using him to prep for my next show for sure.
     
    I don't think you need to see someone face to face unless you are the type of person that needs that extra reassurance, but picking a coach that has a similar training style and nutritional views as yourself is definitely a good idea.
