    Strength Oldschool Home Gym Weight Training Journal

    I thought I'd begin posting my workouts, not all but some, for personal reference and hopefully it may interest others. This training journal will detail full body workouts performed from 3 days a week to as much as 6 days a week. It will also detail split training workouts from time to time (depending upon how I feel), and grip training.

    Join the 300 Pounds Overhead Press Club

    Article By Keith Wassung The overhead press has always been the premiere shoulder exercise for strength and development. Few exercises are as satisfying as the overhead press. I believe that if you could find a remote, primitive island in the world and left a loaded barbell on the beach in the middle of the night, within a week, the men of the island would be trying to lift it over their heads.

    Happy 74th Birthday to The King of Bodybuilding Arnold Schwarzenegger

    The greatest bodybuilder ever (in my opinion) turned 74 today. In his newsletter which Arnold sent out today he stated that his best Bench Press was 525 lbs! Incredible. I wonder if Arnold really did always knew he would become a HUGE star?
