    and good form, machines suck, most machines wont give youm uch if any effect in comparison to freeweights

    for chest and tricep excersizes, do bench press, close grip[ bench press, DB flys and skull crushers...no need to work forearms unless you are obsessedd with them, theyll grow naturally as your arms and strength does

    triceps are the back of your arms, pulldowns are when you grab a cable machine and you pull teh cable down from its pulely on the top, your triceps are actually pushing them at the end but you start by pulling...


    to alive:
    for a quick an easy workout liek someone else said for all aroudn strength do this mon, wed, fri:

    3 sets squats(parallel or ATG)
    3 sets DeadLifts
    3 Sets Barbell Bench Press(flat or incline)
    3 sets Barbell Overhead Press or Pushpress

    keep the reps between 5and10 and use the most weight you can hold for more than 5 reps, try to add more weight every week

    EDIT: sorry i didnt read you have no access to a gym, ok then you want to do pushups, and handstand pushups, and pullups...if you go to youtube theres some video i saw once(http://streetworkout.com/Thug_&_Street.html) of a bunch of black guys swearing a ton showing off their ghetto workotu or something but theyre actualyl really cut, they do all sorts of dips, pullups and pushups...and when you do situps, dont go all teh way up liek you learn in gym class, it puts strain on your back adn neck...

    the best situps are the hanging cruunches, but the best one without any equipment is lift your legs into the air so your body looks liek a v, then pull your chest to your knees or rotate so it hits your obliques as well

    Link for workouts not using any weights for the most part:

    I try boxing and agility ladders for speed, speed is way more important then strength when it comes to evading people

    yeah obviously strength doesnt matter at all when your evading someone, but when youre actually fighting them strength and more so power are big factors...

    yeah but i was jsut talking in general form of being in shape for a fight...obviously if you want to get bigger only for fighting then id do a boxers workout, do tons of punching and shit, lots of explosive work, lots of endurance work, spar with a buddy who also wants to get better and someone aroudn the same size so one of you isnt manhandling the other or going too easy...

    sand bags onto the shoulder i saw today im sure is good for boxing...i want to get a 100lb sandbag now and do those

    once this football seasons over im done with sports so im gunna work on my own lifting more towards fighting aspect, i want to try some MMA shit later down the road, and they have amazing physiques, i bet that doesnt hurt with the bitties

    thanks a lot, now i just have two more quick questions. first, if im not sore the next day, did it not do anything? and abt situps, if ur not going all the way up, isnt it crunches? or is that the point, that u should do crunches instead?

    thanks.


    ps. thought of another i hope u dont mind. ive heard the best idea is to do not what ive been trying to do, just trying to get up to 50, doing a few more each time, but to do two sets to a number you know u can achieve, and the third to failure?

    blow out sets are good to do from time to time as a last set of an exercise.

    what you wanna do is drop the weight down to a little below what you'd normally rep and just rep till you cant anymore.

    dude knows his shit, theyre claled drop sets usually though...and you should be feelign it right after the workout, liek the blood all swelling up in your muscles, and right after you workout you shoudl eat some fast digesting carbs liek waxy maize starch of oatmeal with some sort of protein to build the muscle mass...

    and yea crunches are the way to go

    hahaha, shit puffs your muscles out like crazy afterwards, so you look huge when you leave the gym. i love that


    especially when you do a lot of shoulders. puffy delts make your arms look amazing
