Latest Video Update

I wanted to post this video to show two things.  The first is the dumbbell hooks that I’m using.  They are called Power Hooks and they allow you to rack your dumbbells on a standard olympic bar.  If you’ve done pressing work with heavy dumbbells, you’ll understand when I say that getting the dumbbells from the floor to your shoulders is sometimes more work than the set itself.  These hooks are a great tool and relatively inexpensive.  Highly recommended.

You can’t see the olympic bar in the video, but it is simply on the hooks in the cage.  Here’s a photo of how they attach to the bar:

The second purpose of the video is to show a lifting technique called muscle rounds.  These can be preformed a couple of ways.  The way I’m doing them in this video is based on Scott Stevenson’s Fortitude Training program.  Basically you choose a weight you can handle for about 8 reps.  Unrack and preform 4 reps.  Rack the weight and take 5 deep breadths.  Then, proceed to do five more sets.  On the sixth set do as many reps as possible.  If you chose the correct weight, you will get 3 to 5 reps (I got 8 reps on the last set, so I started to low.)  The next time you do the exercise the goal is to get at least one more rep or increase the load.
