How would you go about peaking for a meet? Leading up to the meet how would your training be adapted? Would you recommend running sheiko's competition prep cycle?

Hey BBOD,

Great forum!! I finally managed to get registered. I was having so much problem in the past.

This is in responds to BBOD #188 at Youtube.

I was trying to look for some answers to this question and of course I don't mind having getting some free stuff.

Should I lockout my knees when I doing stiff leg deadlifts for my hamstrings?? It seems that there are many conflicting opinions.

My understanding and "common sense" tells me I shouldn't do it but but there are people who says I HAVE to??

w w w.bodybuilding.c o m/fun/knee_injury_prevention.htm

The only exception to this rule is with seated leg extensions and stiff-legged deadlifts.

workout911.c o m/?p=3900

There’s a misconception that the stiff-legged deadlift is dangerous to the knee joint...

During extension, the tibia then externally rotates to “screw home” so that the knee can fully lock out. This mechanism is necessary to achieve proper alignment of the tibial and femoral condyles. And herein lies the rub. Knee flexion is associated with rotation while there is no appreciable rotation of the knee during extension. Given that increased mobility results in decreased stability, which do you think is the more stable position? Full extension, of course....

There actually is a potential benefit to keeping the legs straight. You see, the hamstrings are a biarticular muscle, meaning they span two joints: the hip and the knee. By keeping the knees straight, the hamstrings remain in a fully lengthened position. Why is this important? Well, studies show that muscle force is optimized when a two-joint muscle is stretched at one end while acted upon at the other.


Would love to hear your opinion on this.

Do you have any tips for using leg drive on the bench press?

Hey BBOD,

Is there much carry over between Lat Pull down machines to pull/chin-ups?

I was watching your video about arm size, and you measured your wrist size at 8". This is quite large. Yet I have read one of your articles where you say you have tiny wrists, and the accompanying photo of you as a teenager seems to bear this out. Have you really been able to thicken your bone structure, or is this due to thickening your tendons ? If so, which exercises were mainly responsible ?

Default Deadlifts

Should deadlifys be used as a hypertrophy lift as well as strength? Ex. High reps as well as low reps? Followed your win supplements link on the youtubes.

I am not a fan of arm days. They tend to invite too much volume and a lot of inefficient exercises inserted in to fill slots.

Given the choice, I would rather see a lifter hit the big compound movements first and then finish off their arms with more direct work.

An arm day could work, but it would depend on the entirety of the program. A wisely developed program, along with consistency, progression and food goes a long way regardless of program.
