Brooks Kubiks Newsletter

I just thought I would post this here because not everybody will be subscribed to it :

'As most of you know, I am separated from my wife,
getting divorced, living in a small apartment and
training in a commercial gym once again.
Why a commercial gym?

Because my weights wouldn't work very well in a
second floor apartment. The first dropped clean and
jerk would make it a duplex -- and I don't think the
tenant below me would go for that!

Anyhow, I stepped into the gym yesterday, and spotted
a husky young man pumping away furiously in front of
the mirror. He was doing bent arm lateral raises
(cheating style) with (I kid you not) a pair of chrome
plated five pounders!

I've seen this sight over and over again.
It's bad enough that no one does squats, deadlifts,
overhead presses or Olympic lifting.

I can live with the fact that the typical gym member
spends half his time on the bench press and the rest of
his time doing curls.

The existence of the pec deck bothers me, and it's all
too frequent use makes me sick to my stomach, but I'm
sure that I eventually will learn to block out that sort of
thing.

But those five pound lateral raises are something else.
Folks, the name of the game is WEIGHT training.
If you are interested in building strength, power and
muscular size, plan on using some WEIGHT when you
train. Always try to add weight to the bar. Never accept
your current top poundage as your lifetime max.
Do you want to know the secret to building cannonball
delts?

Here it is ... HEAVY presses.

I'm off to the gym in about an hour. I know what I'll see.
Yet another misguided soul knocking out set after set of
lateral raises with those chrome plated five pounders.
Uncle Harry is turning over in his grave'.

    He caught her with a copy of Muscle and Fitness and filed for divorce immediately.

    I wonder who'll get the dogs?

    http://brookskubik.com is the website.

    Don't think he does the newsletter any more.

    He still does the newsletter regular. Click on the link that Miki has given and enter your e-mail address on the left hand side of the screen.
