    Disgust with Modern Bodybuilding by Strength Oldschool

    Long gone are the days of the "classic" bodybuilding look - Wide shoulders, big arms, tiny waist, athletic legs, oozing health and vitality. Serge Nubret (pictured above) was a prime example of this. The classic, flowing lines have vanished and sadly, possibly never to be seen again. From the mid '90's onwards, the sport of bodybuilding took a dive and plunged into a state of mass, belly freaks! Blame the drugs, the judges, the bodybuilders themselves, whomever...bodybuilding unfortunately becam

    How Arnold Schwarzenegger Really Trained - The Truth

    I have collected first-hand accounts on how Arnold Schwarzenegger really trained including info on his diet. I'm a massive fan of Arnold, but let’s face it, there’s a ton of bullshit information out there online, in books, in magazines etc which makes it difficult knowing what to believe. Well here’s first hand accounts taken from people who have trained with Arnold and observed him training in real life.     FIRST HAND ACCOUNTS David C New mentions:

    Basic Bodybuilding Nutrition by Lee Hayward

    * Article uploaded and edited by Strength Oldschool   Your diet is without a doubt one of the most critical aspects of your total fitness bodybuilding routine. You can be consistent with your workouts, but if you don’t fuel your body properly you will NOT get the results you want. Period! Most fitness enthusiasts are meticulous with their training and are ever so careful when scheduling their workouts, doing a precise number of exercises, sets, and reps for each muscle group,

  • Ironmaster Quick Lock Adjustable Dumbbells Review

    Let me start by saying this article is not about providing only positive comments about Ironmaster to simply make some "commission" money back from referred sales... this Ironmaster review and any other product review on this website, regarding gym equipment in general, no matter the brand, will always be truthful and honest. Expect no bullshit from Strength Oldschool. No company is perfect, there will always be something negative to say regarding either the product, the delivery service, custom

    I thought I'd compile a list of resources I visit on a regular basis linking to some of the UK / International online stores that sell great Grip & Forearm Training Tools and also include links to my favourite Youtubers whom I watch that cover Arm Wrestling and Grip Training. This list will be continuously updated over time.

    Alpha Grips by Iron Bull Strength

    These Alpha Grips by Iron Bull Strength are just as good as Fat Gripz. Different shape to Fat Gripz which I suppose is meant to suit the natural grooves of the hand better. These thick Alpha grips are slightly shorter in length also which I find better fits certain gym equipment handles. I own a set of standard dumbbell handles which unfortunately the Fat Gripz did not fit. Thankfully the Alpha Grips do.  I own three sets of Alpha Grips... 2" grips, 2.5" and 3".

    Ironmaster Leg Attachment Pro

    I'm looking into getting a Leg Curl / Leg Extension Attachment training device (pictured opposite) and Ironmaster is at the top of my list as I've previously purchased equipment from them in the past and I've NEVER been disappointed. This Leg Attachment (Pro version) on the Ironmaster UK website retails at £189.00 (GBP). Ironmaster.com retails the same device at $189.00 (US). The downside with buying something like this means I would also need to purchase an Ironmaster Pro Bench a

    Leg Curl and Leg Extension Power Rack Attachment for Home Garage Gym Lifters

    These unique devices are key to compact home garage gyms. I found this photo online after researching leg curl and leg extension attachments for power racks. Even with buying a combo 'leg extension / leg curl machine' it would still take up a good bit of space in a small home gym. So the logical answer would be to buy a special rack attachment that would enable the lifter to perform extensions and leg curls for the legs. The device pictured I'm not quite sure if its for leg extensions or le
