Rakim in all fairness, its easy to get caught up in bull**** you read. Some people NEED more sets (volume) and some people improve with less.

You are probably doing them for the wrong reasons, so stop doing them and do full proper vanilla deadlifts.

I was once told that when doing conventional dead lifts, the bar is supposed to make continuous contact with the legs, starting from the chins going up to the quads through the motion... Is this correct..

It's because I was told 30 reps overall was the ideal for strength gains. I'll try and find the conversation, I can't remember who it was with.

Some people it does, others it doesn't, I would say yes.
If its in contact with the shins and quads the bar is close enough to you and you will get good leverage. I don't think its strictly necessary, nor do you need to really grind it into yourself every inch of the way, but it can be part of it. So yeah, sure, do it.

That doesn't explicitly say anything about ranges Rakim, and even if it did, it doesn't make much sense anyway. Onwards!

So if I still feel alright after a bench/military workout, I won't be ****ing up any strength gains by doing some tricep pulldowns for 4x10 or something, or dumbell flyes?

you must be mad if you think that.
If you do TOO much, like 3-4 more exercises for those bodyparts, you **** your recovery ability as they are small muscles.

So will I see better strength/size gains if I add in some pulldowns after bench/militaries?

Maybe, after a few consistent months. Tricep pushdowns you mean?

Sorry, yeah. Any chance of a bit of an upper body routine, Smalls? I mean, I can't do squats or deadlifts so I've been concentrating on militaries, bench, pullups, and dumbell rows. I get there about three times a week, any chance of a routine encompassing one major pull, one major push, and 1 or 2 accessory exercises per session for strength and size?

The news about the 30 rep rule being *******s has revolutionised my training already.

30 rep rule? It looks like you misunderstood what was said in that thread.

Yeah, looks like it. I remember another conversation (possibly with you) where I was told to keep the total amount of reps under 30 or 32 because it'll retain the muscle better. Then whoever I was talking to posted up a few pictures of powerlifters when they cut to prove the point that the lower rep range is better for long-term muscle gains.

A bit vague, I know, but my memory's ****.


Edit: Found it, same thread as I posted above.
