Twice-a-Day Training. Sleep

ArnoldHere are some of my recent thoughts and experiment results I’d like to share.

Twice-a-Day Training

Why Not to Get Stronger?

Huge PRWhy am I writing about such obvious thing? Recently I’ve met lots of people who were willing to become muscular or ripped (or both) but when I suggested them to get stronger first they looked at me like a madman.

One-Arm Chin-Up Tips

One-Arm Chin-UpThe One-Arm Chin-Up.

I can’t be more official because it’s the skill that everyone admires (or at least should admire). True master of One-Arm Chin-Up possesses such biceps and lats (for their bodyweight, of course) that all conventional bodybuilders will silently stand in the corner, cry and burn from envy. He obtains arm strength to match that size.

I don’t remember the name of the first one but the second is Metin a.k.a. LittleBeastM. You have probably seen his videos. If not, then here’s link to his YouTube channel: LittleBeastM’s YouTube Channel. You should definitely check this guy out. He’s probably the heaviest guy to perform such feats of bodyweight strength.

Anyway, let’s get back to tips. Continue reading
