Advice on competitions, the Big Three Lifts, sample
routines, and downloads of powerlifting spreadsheets.
Hard to believe, but I saved posts from the
Net about lifting weights begining in 1990. Back then, a chat group such as misc.fitness
was a serous place to trade information and advice. Now there is so much
trash that I stick pretty much to listserves.
In this section, you'll find here an amazing trove of material
organized by parts of the body and by lifts.
How to add 20-40 pounds to your bench press, how to
stretch, how to spot a fellow lifter, how to break through a plateau, how
to breathe, how to make weight, and many more step-by-step guides to lifting.
Tips on motivation, inspiring stories from your fellow
lifters, and debates on the best strategies for lifting weights.
Tales from competitors, basic routines and even a
list of 30 lies about bodybuilding.
Health, nutrition and fitness are covered in posts
that explain soreness, how to lose fat but not muscle, how to deal with
colds while lifting, and a LONG series of posts on muscle physiology.
Some of my favorite powerlifting and bodybuilding
routines for the beginning, intermediate and advanced lifter.
Belts, knee wraps, bench shirts, bars--advice on what
to get and how to use these pieces of equipment. There is even a long section
on clothes for men who lift.
Wisdom of the Net on lifting.
