    No. They don't really do much. If you want to do a negative type thing, do a static hold, they are actually somewhat useful, although I still don't think they are worth the effort.
    When I eat, it is the food that is scared.

    • I've been doing a low weight/high rep thing lately because I'm trying to build some endurance and I've been making major gains. For bench, I start out with 30 reps at 135, then do 15 at 155, 12 at 165, 10 at 185. Right after that I do push ups until muscle failure.

            I actually bought a few of those back in September. It's pretty expensive and as far as results go, it was nothing to speak off. It bought chocolate and cookies & cream. Tastes really great. Cookies & cream is amazing with milk.

              Meh, I don't see the benefit too much. I'd rather do some cage presses instead. I find those are real sweet, supposed to help you avoid plateaus and what not.

              What do the vikings and marijuana have in common? Every time you put them in a bowl
              they get smoked.

                  • I want to cut weight but I hate running. I have access to a gym full of machines. Lately I've been doing an hour of walking at 2.5-3 mph on an incline anywhere from 15-30%, I'll work myself up in increments, then drop it down again and start the process over. I'm keeping a pulse of 150-170 through most of it and getting a good sweat. I also keep a mouthguard in and try to breathe through my nose the entire time, that way I'm in the habit in case I decide I want to fight. Also makes the cardio tougher. Suggestions?

                    • I've been eating a lot better lately and working out (mostly cardio) because I've wanted to get back into "tennis shape" for a few years now, but besides cardio, is there anything anyone can suggest for better muscle definition? I have access to a few machines but nothing state of the art.. it just seems like a huge hassle right now.. one I'm fully willing to suffer through, but meh.

                        I've been doing incline speed walking as my cardio for the last week as my after workout cardio. I put it up to 3.5 with a 13.5 incline. I don't know what percentage that is but it's steep enough for me. You don't have to run to cut weight. Seems to be a huge misconception. You could cut a decent amount of fat off just by having a diet high in protein and lower your carbs. Obviously one would eliminate the soda, sugary snacks, and greasy chips.

                        • Ward, try doing your walks right when you wake up while you're fasted, it will help you more than doing it any other time of the day.

                          I've done negatives, and I don't think they're worth doing at all really unless you've been completely plateaued for months of seriously trying to gain (seriously trying, not, "I go to the gym sometimes and do the same weights every time.") and nothing else is working its worth a shot if you can't find any new types of lifts or machines to help you progress.

                          I got lazy as **** in the past 8 months and put on about 10 pounds (a lot when you're 5'6"...) plus some girth that I'm not so fond of and since I haven't really ever cut before, but I've read articles about it for hours, maybe even over a day of my life at this point, I'm going to be trying a couple of things in combination. I've also lost a lot of strength and bulk in my arms, traps, chest and lats, but I'm worrying about cutting the crap off first since I've found out from experience that its damn near impossible to double dip into significant weight loss and mass building at the same time without something "aiding" you.

                          I'm going to mostly be focusing on HIIT and sprinting several times per week and when I get to the gym (which is only 1-3 times per week cause its ******* cold outside and I don't have a car but I've got to be down to the school beside the gym to coach rugby anyways) do mostly lifts that engage a lot of the body and ramps up my metabolism. I'll be focusing on deadlifts and deadlift variations for the most part under the assumption that I only make it there once per week (I looove single legged romanian deadlifts).

                          And obviously, changing up my diet from the one I've been rocking lately... frosted flakes, nutrigrain and pirogies... epic, I know lol. I'm going to try to eat small healthy meals 5-6 times during the day.

                          The biggest thing for me is going to be trying to fix my sleeping patterns though. I'm unemployed and out of school until August when I head back to University, and my sleeping cycle... basically, I wake up 1 hour later and stay up 1 hour later every day. I've gone from sleeping from 5pm to 1am to sleeping from 6am to 4pm several times in the past couple months.

                          I'm writing this just because I feel like I need to get it down somewhere that won't just sit in a folder on my computer that will just rot. I'm going to try and keep posting in this thread once a week to keep myself on track, and of course, I'll try and contribute to the people looking for help as well since I've worked out for a full decade now, most of it until my recent epic slacking being pretty successful.

                          I'm currently 5'6" 170, played rugby at 5'6 160 for the past four seasons with no visible abs but a very lean strong core and very solid cardio. Hoping to say buhbye to this girth in the next couple months :)
