  • Q&A with Hate and Joker!!!!

    Alright guys I get alot of PM's and questions thrown at me to design splits, how to burn fat, build mass, up numbers in the weight room, how to work around injuries, just general training advice..and I'm sure my partner Joker does aswell. And we enjoy helping you guys out anyway we can, cause hell we are all a part of MD on this board and that is pretty rad IMO!!

    So in this thread feel free to ask any questions you have about anything pertaining to BBing, powerlifting, fat loss, or LBM gaining and we will get you sorted out the best we can. We get alot of questions in different threads and this will help us keep them together so we can get you guys the info YOU NEED in a timely manner!!

    I don't mind designing splits or anything else for you guys just give me some info (stats) and I will write you something up.
    I am a working personal trainer through the American Counsil On Exercise, I am currently going to school for nutrition, and I am about to test out through ISSA as well.
    I have been doing this for a long time, have suffered some pretty bad injuries over the years and always bounced back, I've been somewhat lucky but I know how to train around them too.

    With that said fire away!!!

    what's your opinion of ISSA? im thinking of getting a cert or 2 from there.
    I'm bad, and that's good. I will never be good, and that's not bad. There's nobody I'd rather be, than me.

      It's not a bad one as far as the curriculim but it is not colege accredited, that was what got me to do the A.C.E first. However it's the toughest one from what I hear and I can deffinatlly vogue for it being tough! Lots of BS you'll never use like anything else I guess but they get a little carried away with the anatomy IMO.

      Lots of shit in there I have never used, probably a good 80% but you want to get the certs to secure a better job or be able to work for yourself (which is what I have always done with it), plus it obviouslly looks good to anyone you are training. Lots of the screening techniques were really good from ACE but like I said it's pretty tough and the test is a bitch.

        Sorry to rant brother.

        Overal I would say ISSA is a solid cert, lots of people out there have it, and again the only bad thing about it is it's not accredited. Other than that it's probably in the top 3 certificates in the country. Now if you are doing this to go into the industry the more different certs you have the better. ;.)

              Hey man , I just got your PM , no need to work around the back, although bb rows are just some extra stress. I usually do hammer rows so i can squeeze, but its whatever you think is best! ,my body is at about 93% so im good to go. yea if you wouldnt mind, send me that routine with what you would think would work best for me.

              so far we had the 4 days a week first 2 days were heavy and the last two days were more reps. i just want to keep upping my strength as well as put on more mass and size, cus ill be killing the weights and the meals hard from here out since ill have my own place in a couple of months, groceries, breakfast, and meals will be alot easier to manage.

              Thanks again for all the help and posts and ill be keepin an eye out for the routine!!

                My left shoulder doesn't sit in the socket correctly. I feel it in particular on chest and shoulder movements (no duh, right?). What are some good rotator cuff exercises that could help stabilize the joint over time?

                  I feel ya brother. I tore my rotator cuff when I was 20...It takes time, don't push it, be extra carefull on bench, flies, and db press for pecs and reeeaaaall carefull doing any overhead press, upright rows, and lateral raises..pretty much all the good ones. Warm up real well and do these exercises (you can do them every other day) and it'll tighten back up in a few weeks ;')

                  Isometric Internal Rotation
                  Stand near the end of outer corner of wall.
                  Bend elbow to 90-degree angle and keep elbow close to body, lower arm level with floor.
                  Press palm of hand into wall for 10 seconds. Repeat exercise on other side.
                  Internal Rotation using Dumbbells
                  Lie on side.
                  Hold dumbbell on same side, Bend elbow to 90-degree angle. Keep elbow against body.
                  Slowly lift dumbbell upward and toward body.
                  Pause, and return to start.
                  Repeat 10 times. Repeat exercise on other side.
                  Internal Rotation using Resistance Band
                  Attach resistance band to doorknob / wall.
                  Stand with right side to wall.
                  Hold resistance band with right hand.
                  Bend elbow to 90-degree angle, hand facing frontward and elbow close to body.
                  Slowly rotate hand toward the middle of the body.
                  Return to starting position.
                  Repeat 10 times. Repeat exercise on other side
                  Isometric External Rotation
                  Stand with side to wall.
                  Bend elbow to 90-degree angle. Keep elbow close to body.
                  Press back of hand into wall for 10 seconds. Repeat exercise on other side
                  External Rotation using Dumbbells
                  Lie on left side.
                  With right arm, hold dumbbell next to body, elbow bent 90-degrees.
                  Slowly lift upward until back of hand faces backward.
                  Return to starting position.
                  Repeat 10 times. Repeat exercise on other side
                  External Rotation using Resistance Band
                  Attach resistance band to doorknob / wall.
                  Stand with left side to wall.
                  Hold resistance band with right hand.
                  Start with right hand in middle of body, elbow bent 90-degrees.
                  Slowly stretch band by moving arm outward until back of hand facing backward.
                  Do one set (10 repetitions) Repeat exercise on other side.
                  Lateral Raise using Dumbbell
                  Stand or sit in chair.
                  Keep shoulders down and back.
                  With arms at side and thumbs pointed upward, slowly raise arms to the sides but slightly toward the front (at about a 30 degree angle to the front of the body) until almost shoulder level. Repeat 10 times.

                  Lying Lateral Raise using Dumbbell
                  Lie on left side. Hold dumbbell in right hand, placed in front of thigh. Keep elbow slightly bent. Raise dumbbell slowly off floor until arm is at 45-degree angle.
                  Return to starting position.
                  Repeat 10 times. Repeat exercise on other side.

                    Another thing I did and still do sometimes Spiko is to use less weight for shoulders and do giant sets. They are one muscle that seems to respond pretty well to really high reps and intensety.

                    I know you already know that though, just throwin it out there.

                    I like to do 3 or 4 run throughs of this with a target 10-15 reps for each movement:

                    Smith press
                    Lateral raises
                    Revers flies (us the machine)
                    Front raises to failure with an unloaded olympic bar. (I do these a bit differant bringing the bar up straight over head and lowering it slowlly back to me pelvis) It's bring the traps into play and I usually do this before I go onto traps.


                    Keep in mind that more and more studies are coming out showing the rep range of 24-30+ reps a set to be as good if not better at building LBM.

                    I have done it before for everything and didn't really like it but for an injury I beleive it's a good practice because you can handle such a lighter weight.
                    That giant set^ is 40-50+ reps anyways so..

                        MORE STRENGTH EVENTUALLY MEANS MORE SIZE....NO CALS AND MACROS=NO CALS FOR STRENGTH

                          What are you suggestions for bringing up strength on the bench press?
                          You know I'm small (I will be in the 130-146 class for PL'ing), about a month ago I got 225 x 10 and my 1RM is 285. Right now I seem to be sliding backwards, last night did 225 x 5.
                          I've just started hitting bench twice a week. Any other ideas with regards to training? Thanks in advance, JIM.
