    Cheat and recover beginners

    November 9, 2018, 8:01 pm

    started cheat and recover. never used barbell's before because i've always thought dumb bells kettlebells and total body workouts to be superior. Had a good start, but why only start with recover because i'm not a beginner. i've gymed before?) untill pull and abs day when i did the deadlifts and rack pulls. started with 80kg because i didn't want to go heavy. didn't feel like i had a problem, untill i realised somebody had "borrowed" my towel. and i had to start walking to the mr price sport next to our gym to go and buy one because normally i don't sweat a lot but on that day i sweated as much as i would normally playing a halve of rugby. fortunately i had to wait a while in the linne for the paypoint and i strethed it out. ( i did watch the fundamnetal series about deadlifts, but didn't practise it. something i'm gonna have to fix just like i realised with the rdl today. don't have a pvc pipe but will use a broom or something.)

    Just a few questions for you guys:

    1. do you use a shorter barbell for b/bell squats and glute bridges?

    2. i think most of us has poor mind muscle controll. Scott i've managed to track videos for activator excersiszes for delts, traps and lats but would you make some about all the muscle groups?

    3. also if you could include all the muscle groups in your hard gainer series?

    4.  also cheat and recover how to  for the d/bell excersises for people who doesn't have a spotter and doesn't want  to do b/bells ( as we only hve four b/bell stations in  our gym and there are only six benches and two sets of weights of everything and no hexagonal weights, so you have to stand in line to wait do to ab pull down and so on.

    5. because i have to start as a beginner in month one (sorry just quickly vomiting in my mouth) do i load as heavy as i know i can or so that i can feel the strain/contractions of the muscle.

    just again thx scott for a great site. like the way you explain your excersizes and plan your workouts around their function (like the chest muscles has these functions etc. keep up the good work

    hope to hear from you guys

    @mildentdoc those C&R workouts will get you sweating, that's for sure! Proud of you for attempting both the Cheat & Recover portions of the program!

     

    1. Just use a regular barbell. You can use a small one if you need to, but if there's a regular barbell available, just use that.

     

    2. I will make some more videos in that series to cover other muscle groups! What are you having trouble with at the moment in terms of MMC?

     

    3. Yes I will!

     

    4. Do you mean how to do cheat reps on, for example, the bench press if you only have dumbbells to use? You can toss them up in the air, control the negative, then put the dumbbells back on your knees and use my trick to toss them back up, control the negative, and repeat. If you can't do that though, and don't have a spotter, just do 5 heavy reps, don't don't worry about making them cheat reps.

     

    5. Load up the bar as heavy as you can, while maintaining proper form. Got to push yourself!

     

    Hope that helps!
