    Triceps are a relatively small muscle group(biceps also) and are easy to overtrain. They are also worked secondarly with many chest and shoulder exercises such as bench press, chest dips, military press, lateral raises etc. So why would you do dumbell kickbacks and and close grip bench presses more than once a week? Squats 3 times a week is crazy. I do squats no more than twice a week and one of those days is with relatively low intensity.

    Your muscles need up to four days to recover depending on the intensity and when trying to increase your strength it needs to be pretty intense.

    well i really think that it has no effect at all, remember the body its in constant
    homeostasis, so the levels of testosterone will maintain a specific level,
    this is controlled by the negative feedback process.

    Squating 3 times a week is not that bad if you eat good food and sleep well enough.

    But studies have shown (and feel free to look them up) that training a muscle twice a week is better than training a muscle once a week. And there is a slight increase if you do it three times a week.

    The thing with these "hit the muscle one time a week" programs is that they are designed for those that are:

    a) advanced bodybuilders
    b) they have a well-rounded base that just needs some touching up.

    Like if someone's lats are out of proportion to his legs but he has a big base, well full-body 3-times a week isn't going to help him proportion wise. Plus, to even mention "out of proportion" one must have a great base to work from... which you only get from doing compound work for years.

    It seems everyone wants to follow the workouts they see in the muscle magazines... but most people don't realize that they are crap.

    But yes... Every other day I do a full body workout. By the weekend I am worn out and by monday I am ready to go at it again

    Why do you want it? Assuming you're not joking...

    Yes. That tumor may have spread to your penis already, but it might not be too late!

    The way I think of it is that for us men, sex is a need just as strong as the need for food. When we don't get it, it soon becomes all we think about just like when you miss a meal or two. The longer it's been, the stronger the desire. And just as average food tastes better when hungry, ugly chicks look better and better the longer it's been since orgasm for a man. Average women become fascinating, irresistable. And good looking women, totally overwelming, like the sight of an oasis to a man dying of thirst.

    For a woman, sex is like going to the movies. Pleasant, maybe even great. But there is no ever growing need as in men.

    Before you graduate high school? If you are in highschool, go out for cross country. I joined for pretty much the same reason (to get in shape) and I was, by far, the biggest guy on the team. They called me "the wedge" because I'd run in formation with this other fairly big guy and not let the little guys pass. We turned cross country into a contact sport!

    Anyway, I pretty much sucked at cross country but could run the 3.2 mile race in 18 minutes flat before long. (the good guys could do it in 15 minutes flat).

    Boy, that quote must have really gotten your goat. It wasn't even from this thread . What thread was it from, and when did I post it? Because I don't remember.

    It's not that I don't stand behind what I said, I just wonder how much trouble you went to in finding that quote.

    Two years ago! WTF. It's nice to know that the words I put down here aren't just lost in the ether. But it really amazes me that someone would recall something that I said two years ago and bring it up today.

    Do I still believe that? Yes. In fact, I think it warrants a new thread.

    Please, Draqon was just quoting me from 5 years ago, i think the problem is someone resurrected this thread and then people started reading it from the beginning not noticing the time stamp.
