So where do all the people I see doing quarter squats, bicep curls with a hip thrust, shrugs with 50% bodyweight in the squat rack, etc. get their routines from ?
Is there a website or magazine somewhere that recommends that sort of stuff ?
I know I'm doing it right, or at least trying to, but it does make me wonder when everyone else in the gym is doing it differently.

Some of them are big guys though, so I guess it works for them, but it's not something I'd do. I just like being organised and knowing exactly what I'm going to do on a particular day.

feel good, go heavy, feel shit, dont.

ultra_whippet wrote:Interesting point about asking the big/strong guys for advice - I'm not sure this always works though - I've seen plenty of guys who are just genetic freaks and get big even with a shit training routine.... but in any case guys are far less likely to ask for advice than women are.
