MERRY CHRISTMAS

Hi Sloni and all, I trust everyone had a great Christmas? The beauty of possessing small bones is whatever size you add at least it shows, unlike heavier-boned people who have to add some substantial size for it to show. That makes me feel better with what I have been given. :wink: I has skinny legs...

Arms

Morning Sloni, Definitely, larger plates allow better leverage for deadlifts. In a power rack I feel to restricted, so I have only done power-rack deadlifts on a handful of occasions, the floor version the one I favour most. 27 1/2" is a big leg! I assume you have medium to heavy bones? I have a wri...

Greetings

Morning Sloni, Yes, I was pleased Sven wrote so much and contributed. :-D Great workout! That is substantial progress, so obviously you have it all worked out well and will soon be much bigger!!! :thumbup: It stands to reason that PITT training by itself is taxing enough without adding to it with o...

Hi Sven, nice to hear from you. I enjoy discussing Mike Mentzer and Heavy Duty as they are both close to my heart. I really enjoy PITT as it is a step above Mike's system I believe. Good to hear you are doing well training PITT style. What does your workout look like, how long have you been using i...

Hi Sloni, I completely understand how busy you must be as this is the crazy season and life is out of control at present. I don't know why my message appeared twice? As soon as I realised it had I deleted the second one to save room and overcome my error. :wink: Hopefully I can share some more of wh...

Hi Sloni, Aha, now I see why you asked my height. I make sure I use large plates so I can start my deadlifts -- when I do them -- from a higher position as possible. I must admit it doesn't feel too natural at the bottom position, I feel far better on the bottom position of squats. With just over 1...

Brevity

Agreed, we are all essentially the same, it is just our needs in handling large amounts of exercise varies. Even genetic freaks like that 275# Aubrey Francis Mike Mentzer trained, found he could only progress and cope with 2 sets -- 1 set of 2 exercises -- every 10-14 days. Luckily for me I have rec...

Hi Sloni, I agree, even incline presses -- which Mike Mentzer considerd a superior chest exercise -- takes a lot wasted energy racking and unracking the bar using PITT style training. So like you, I rely soley on dips, which also works my whole upper-body, an added bonus. :) I listened to some of my...

PITT Split

Hi Sloni, Thanks for sharing, nice split! It is funny how we came about the same split, though we are worlds away!!! Even though I included direct bicep work, due to the stress of chinups on my arms -- especially done PITT style -- later I may need to drop it. So like me, you have discovered the key...

Hi Sloni, Wow, 9 hours! I haven't had more than about 6 since my kids were born! :wink: Luckily the cool change came in last night, so today it is much cooler and I'm not hot and sweating for once. Using a chair for static chins is a possibility, but the two problems I found were (1) getting up that...

PITT

Hi Sloni, :-D You were close! Yeah, BB is barbell. You kill me!!! :-D On Seated BB Presses I set the pins in my power rack so the bar is about chin level, which gives me enough leverage to keep repping out. It is very taxing, as I found, and also works my back quite heavily. I used to be an avid dea...

It's sweltering here lately. We are due to get a cold change today, which will be welcomed as I hate the heat! :x Yeah, that is the beauty of the Internet. No matter where one lives we are able to discuss training in the push of a button. I have friends in America, and we discuss training every day....

My split

Hi Sloni, Nice to hear from you again. :) Weighing up my options last weekend, using my records dating back 30 years as a guide, I decided to hone my routine down to a minimum so I could cope with the increased stress PITT provides. Using "hitter's" advice earlier this year, here is what I decided u...
