but the rugby team runs a lot
more pb&j for meeeee
i'm about to see what the bill starr routine did for me!
First hockey game tonight (goalie) + recovering from torn MCL + Bill Starr routine = ???
I almost joined my school's rugby team, decided school work was more important
thanks for the update, nga
After doing the starr routine for 4 months, I got to 365 squat, 265 bench, 325 deadlift. First hockey game game back I got in a fight with TWO guys at the same time
I'm stronger than your normal person, but these two must have been PUSSIES, I flipped one over my back and brought him to his knees and punched in square in the face. The second guy I hit him once in the face, knocked him down and the ref got him from there.
My father was in the stands going "GET HIM MATT!! YOU DIDN'T GET ALL THAT MUSCLE FOR NOTHING!@#!@" My girlfriend was mortified.
Muscle != Strength
You're right. Maybe I should go yell at my father for screaming that. Or maybe you shouldn't be such a douche bag.
Nice! I'm just about at the same spot! Incline benching 250, squatting 350, DL'ing 350...
Anyway, we OWNED tonight! 4-1. My knee felt fantastic, my body felt more powerful than ever before, and I felt like I was back in midseason form....
now, i'm gonna relax with my doggah, drink a protein shake, get a shower, then go to bed.
i'm calling tonight a success.
from [above statement]
where Muscle = "Good at fighting"

ps... My training for rugby (similair to Bill Star routine) is great for off season to build functional strength to give me more potential on the field.
I'll make sure my father knows the fallacies of his logic thanks to you two.
Just messin' with ya... When reading your post one may get the impression YOU are implying that your gym routine allowed you to beat two hockey players in a fight.
I think more than anything, weightlifting boosted your confidence and allowed you to feel less hesitant to brawl at your game. Nevertheless, good on ya for using the routine, its great for building strength for sport.
Maybe I should have bolded the part about my father saying it so it is easier to see.
But you're right, confidence is a wonderful thing.
yes, there is no correlation between the two...
I got into a heated argument with a guy on another board about how weight classes in boxing were a good thing. He was trying to convince me that big muscles made you big, slow and un-agile. When I brought up Mike Tyson he didn't have a response.
*insert video of skinny 190lb dude squatting 700lbs*
That is something that is normal too. Definitely. Yup, everyone can do that. Mmmmmhm.
Yeah, I can agree most of the time when you take two evenly skilled opponents and pitt them togethor, the stronger/bigger guy wins. However, if you pitt two unevenly skilled fighters togethor I would say its more common for the better fighter to win regardless of size.
As it is in any sport, being athletic (big, strong, fast, fit etc) is supplemental to being good at the sport. Obviously a combination of the two is best, but in my own experience skill sets come first and foremost when playing sport.
I know this from experience in MMA, rugby, football, and even sports like squash. 9 times out of 10 I am stronger, faster, and much more fit than my opponents. I am humbled often when going against opponents who's ability in the sport is greater than mine, and usually, my athletic ability only accounts for prolonging my defeat in the sport.
When I practice the sport more I get better in the sport regardless if I missed a PR or had a shitty day in the gym etc.
aren't you guys missing the point?
I can play hockey again!!! wooohoooo!!!
When did I say everyone can do that?
You're taking one subject and applying it as a rule breaker.
Generally speaking, more muscle = better fighter. I say GENERALLY because there are a lot of other factors. But the fact that you're just being a douche bag for the sake of being a douche bag still remains.
