Arms: Train More to Gain More?

Q: Iím a hardgainer, so Iíve been using your [version of Eric Broserís] Power/Rep Range/Shock program [listed in the e-book 3D Muscle Building]. Iím making great gains in size and strength everywhere except for my arms. Do you think I need to specialize on my biceps and triceps? I really want big arms as soon as possible.

A FAREWELL Of Endings and the Period
Dr. Al Thomas, 1930-2008

To current-day IRON MAN readers, the name Dr. Al Thomas may not be immediately recognizable, unless you were a faithful follower of the magazine during the publishing days of Peary Rader. The magazine had a vastly different look in those days, but it was a haven for the preachings of a man whose vision offered an unexplored horizon for the female strength athlete.

Smokin’ Protein Source

Smokin’ Protein Source

When you think of hemp, you may picture lighting up, inhaling and getting the munchies. New hemp food products, however, have nothing to do with getting you high and everything to do with getting you healthy. For example, hemp contains all nine essential amino acids. Also, hemp oil is the most balanced vegetable oil, containing a good balance of omega-6 and omega-3 essential fatty acids, and hemp seeds contain fiber, vitamins and minerals. You may want to try hemp seeds as a snack or the new hemp-spiked granola cereals. Remember, however, youíre supposed to eat them; donít put them in a pipe and smoke them.

Our schedules had not been meshing well lately. Randyís being a car salesman and my being a parent meant that we had very little free time. When I was a kid, keeping myself amused was my responsibility. Anything requiring money or my being driven anywhere was out of the question. As far as my mom and dad were concerned, I had food in my belly and a roof over my head; their job was done. I recall wanting desperately to enroll in a local karate school, but my parents were too cheap to pay the $10 a month. Oh, how times have changed! We think nothing today of paying for all manner of classes, lessons and sports activities after school and on weekends. Kids today are so busy, they actually need Palm Pilots and little daily planners to keep all their commitments straight. You can see them earnestly coordinating meetings on their cell phones while they try to trade Yu-gi-Oh cards.
