Rant-O-rama returns

I am soooo over EVERYONE complicating training. It IS NOT DIFFICULT stop making it sound so difficult!!!

Here is a mid year RANT.

  • Nobody needs a nutritionist.
  • Most people don't need a coach.
  • You don't need to go to a seminar where someone talks to you ALL DAY about macronutrients.
  • You don't need to buy all organic food.
  • You don't need to do the latest fitness fad.
  • You are not a professional athlete if you get free protein powder.
  • You don't need to try every program on bodybuilding.com.
  • You don't need every single supplement available.
  • Stop changing your program every week.
  • Fine do Crossfit, what do I care.
  • Bodybuilding isn't the devil.
  • Increase your 20 rep squat by 50lbs and your bodyweight will increase.
  • If your trainer looks like shit…your training will be shit.
  • Crap calves? Flat chest? Find better parents next time.
  • Stick to a training program for 8-16 weeks.
  • No stronger than you were a year ago. You don't know what you're doing.
  • Same size as you were a year ago. You don't know what you're doing.
  • Training program you made up. You don't know what you're doing.
  • You're probably not a genetic freak. Stop training like one.
  • Ugly deadlifting does virtually nothing for you.
  • Just cos you lift, doesn't make you tough. It is cute, like an angry puppy though.
  • Partials are only good if you use hideous amounts of weight.
  • You should put the most work into the biggest muscles.
  • You will never, EVER look like Arnold.
  • LOTS of bodybuilders had better physiques than Arnold. He just had a better personality.
  • On the whole, humans are stronger and bigger now than ever before.
  • Genetics beats hard work.
  • Hard work beats lazy genetics though.
  • Genetics and hard work = CHAMPION.
  • First WANT IT then DO IT.
  • Listen to strong people who have worked hard for a long time.
  • Respect your elders. They've heard and done it all before. Well, some of them have.
  • Alcohol and painkillers. Works very time and never killed anyone. Oh fuck, that's not right!
  • Enjoy and cherish your training. It is your time.
  • Anything is possible. What a load of shit!
  • Anything is possible – within reason – better.
  • Just 'cos a 'guru' makes up exercises doesn't mean they are any good.
  • All those new exercises they made up…Dorian never used 'em.
  • Nor did Arnold.
  • Or Ronnie or Frank or Sergio or Lee or Larry…
  • Stop reading shit. Start doing shit.


I could go on and on and on…


Zuver's Gym was a legendary gym in the 60's and 70's and had more unique training equipment than you could imagine including a 2000lbs Barbell, custom Big Wheel lat pulldown, HUGE custom built power racks and much more. A whole article is required on this amazing museum of a gym.

Here's Zuver's 200lbs (each) weight plates.
