To victor pride,
Another great article in the books. As always informative and enjoyable at the same time, short and to the point. Im here in jersey and its hard to find gyms that have actual weights in them. Imagine that. I heard of a gym nearby that will ask you to leave if you grunt and scream to loud. Huh? I have some old weights at moms house collecting dust, think ill stop by and put them to use. I also have milk crates at home and a pile of rocks in my yard to make my own shit. I saw an article years ago about men in africa who dont have gyms or actual weights but use bricks and car parts to do a workout and these guys were jacked. When there is a will there is a way, and there is always a fucking way. Rock on brother. Tim.
This is very similar to the way Danny Padilla trained back in the 70’s. Moderate weight for medium reps for very short rest periods. Danny would do 5 sets of 12 reps on each exercise with only 45 to 60 seconds rest between sets. He would do up to 20 to 25 sets per body part twice a week. I like this way of training as it keeps me fit, lean and grow muscle by trying hard and fast. Despite what some “experts” say, you don’t have to go heavy to build muscle. I do think that this way of training is more beneficial to the natural trainer as to heavy duty type training. Danny’s and Serge’s way of training is much easier on the joints while the stress is on the muscle.
