    Do we have any weight lifters in here???
    Serious ones, not just the weekend warriors.

    I myself lift and am using a three day full body HST routine right now.

    Big compound stuff for me.

    Power clean
    Flat bench
    Shoulder press

    That's about it.

    Compunds are good, very good.
    They make up the basis of the routine I am using right now, although there are a few isolation movements along with some of them.
    Compounds develop excellent strength, balance and muscular control/coordination.

    Here's my routine:

    Deadlifts ( stiff legged)
    Standing Calf Raises
    Seated Calf Raises
    Bench Press
    Barbell Row
    Shoulder Press
    Lateral Raises
    Biceps Curl
    Weighted Crunches

    Hows this for weight lifting
    One Arm Three Finger chins in a sling
    1 3 7 moves on the campus board
    Face it gents, Rock climbing is the superior sport:D
    Check out Jerry Moffrits or Ben Moons training if you have no idea what I am talking about

    Serious though I also train weights,mainly compound moves,particulary straight legged dead lift,squats and power clean.I use a machine for lat pull downs and seated row.Only train twice a week and I matrix the sets as I am focusing on power endurance.Also just got introduced to dumbbell swings,which is more a cardio /endurance deal.

    Yeah and I use Captins of Crush Once a week

    I weight lift only for my forearms and I also do squats until I can't walk down the stairs the other day.

    Lot of dumbell flies, lateral, shoulder etc.

    LOL sort of but I do curls roughly about twice a week and I depend only on push-ups for my triceps.

    So I actually use weights for my forearms but I do free-style evercises like dips between parallel bars and pull-ups for my other areas.Sorry u misunderstood me.

    i used to be big on lifting weights and going to the gym but now i have the body former by rock's the same thing as the total's much easier on the joints and the workouts take much,much less time.those are the two best things about the body former.i can add plates to the handles as well for added resistance,which i like to do when doing seated rowing and chest presses.
    all in all,i'd say that 15 minutes on that thing equals an hour of weight training.remember.i said weight training,not power cannot duplicate powerlifting on the body former but you can very effectively duplicate a super set type workout in 15 minutes of what would take a half hour in the gym or an hour with free weights.
    i superset chest presses w/seated rowing,handstand presses w/chin ups,curling w/tricep extensions and add in straight arm pullovers at the end of each session.they really burn the abs bigtime.and it only takes one set to do it.

    I used to lift weights until 8 weeks ago when I sprained (haireline fracture :() my dam wrist goddamit, goddamit!

    I lifted 6 times a week and went from 6 stone to 10. Those 8 weeks I missed were supposed to be precious bulking time where I would have added 14lbs of mass on.

    time to go to rant colum goddamit

    Yep - been lifting off and on for the last 18 years. Been SERIOUS about it the last three. I'm on a 4-day split and I try to include at least one good compound movement each day. Mine breaks down like this:

    Monday - Triceps, biceps & forearms
    Wednesday - Legs (big squat day)
    Thursday - Chest & delts (lots of benching & military presses)
    Saturday - Back (deadlifts & chins)

    That's a REAL abbreviated summary.

    There is only 2 days a dread jugement day and leg day.

    Tuesday- chest, triceps

    Thusday- back, biceps and traps

    Saturday- legs and shoulders

    Abs get done twice a week.

    I save the cardio for class on the other 3 nights.

    I work out with weights using barbells and kettlebells. Exercises I do regularly are dips, KB snatches, KB military presses, hang cleans and push presses. I want to add chins when I get a setup for it. MA classes two nights a week.

    MA classes 3 times a week, lifting every third day, curls, bench, shoulder press, tricep extension, lat raises, pullups/chinups and whatever else I wanna throw in. My legs get a workout in my MA classes and maybe once a week besides that
