    deads are far from essential

    same with squatting



    (strictly from a bb perspective)

    essential no... for faster gains thanks to the stress of a full body work out... its more beneficial then anything else and will release most growth hormone which is stored in your ass muscle, biggest one in your body... heh look at ronnie coleman, he was a PL before, did like 700 @ 198lb, and there is that famous vid of him doing 800x2 just before comp.

    deads, yeah, I could agree with you depending on your genetics, but squats I think are essential. You aren't gonna get big ass legs just doing leg press and leg extensions.

    I think its a good idea to get a base level of deadlifting/squatting in. Maybe a few hard years of it, get big legs/back with them. WHen you stop, you will keep most if not all that mass. I havent deadlifted since my meet and have the same size everything except penis. I go through phases of 1+ years of no DL at all, makes no diff for me it seems.

    Thinking about trying this routine, but I haven't had a gym membership since my gym closed down and instead have been working out from home.

    At home I have a power rack with lat pulldown and low pulley, barbells, dumbells, bench which can incline/decline, pullup bar, dip bar. Most things in the routine I have the equipment to do. It's mostly the leg day which is a problem - i can't do leg presses or leg extensions. Should I just do more squats or lunges or something?

    I only have free weights and such, no machines. Doing this at home.

    The rest all being the same, can anybody suggest substitutes for these exercises?

    I can't search because I'm poor.

    What's the deal with cutting out 4 egg yolks? I'd rather just eat all 6 of em whole, more calories = better AFAIK. I guess eating healthier factors into it there I don't like to waste food tho.

    Still doing this routine with some minor adjustments and getting great results.
    Huge props to TS

    That said, two things I'm wondering....

    -Any recommendations for a saturday or sunday routine? Ive been working on areas that i feel need more work on those days (generally legs or chest)

    -Any good chest workouts that i can swap into the routine?
