comment Can someone who takes steroids get muscle mass even without lifting?
Although I agree with 99% of your answers I disagree here. Most people on steroids aren't working out religiously. They are the ones that want a short cut, and those guys aren't the big lifters. Take any sport and most guys juicing are the same ones that are lucky to work out twice a week. Don't underestimate how easy it is for some to get steroids and how easy it is to stick yourself a few times a week and skip your workouts. Also it isn't expensive unless you think $20 a week is expensive.

comment What's a good 30 yard time?
@JohnP - No offense but you don't understand sprint times. You wouldn't get to 90% of top speed until at least 20 yards maybe 30. Your 10 yard split under 2 seconds is really really really good. Running 20 yards at 1.54 is highly highly implausible. Also something I didn't even touch on because of the laughability of the time is that a 15 year olds biggest hurdle is their slow first few steps. Not until 20-23 years old has the fast twitch muscles developed for the ultimate first couple steps. So a 2 sec 10 is near impossible at 15.

comment What's the best way to increase bicep size and endurance
I have lifted my whole life and never spent more than 20 mins in any week and 10-15 mins in a normal week on biceps. I was never into body building buy had 16" biceps at a time and not much less now. Want to get them bigger then focus on your core body. I have yet to see a guy who can squat 500 pounds with small biceps. I am not saying by squatting you will sprout huge bi's I am saying your body likes symmetry and your smaller muscle groups will get bigger faster as larger muscle groups grow.

comment Back pain and stiffness if not working out regularly
... cont... My point here is you can find people like me everywhere. Probably 1 out of 10-15 guys who were active in lifting and sports their whole life. Almost all are told to have surgery. So there is research and academic work. And that research is telling doctors to perform surgery which is blatantly wrong. I have friends that have had discs fused together and they aren't very mobile and are in constant pain. I think this is an area in general that modern medicine just isn't aligned right. I would never believe a doctor telling me to have anything done to my back.

comment Back pain and stiffness if not working out regularly
@EricKaufman - yea good luck with that. I was set for lower back surgery at 25. And then at 28 and 30. Almost 10 years later I live back pain free 95% of my life (yes 10-20 days a year my back hurts). I am an extremely active person - workout 4-5 times a week, hard cardio 3-4 times and sports. I have a few friends in my boat and I used to train people with back problems. The people I trained I convinced no surgery and I still get xmas cards from them saying how well they are doing.... cont

comment Supersets vs Exercise to failure
On Smith machine you have to have your feet way out in front to get even close to OK form. When squatting properly your back would never be "straight" - when using a smith machine your back is almost exactly straight when doing squats as right as you can. I did use a Smith machine at school for a year - so you have to do what you have to do. I was squatting around 450 on the Smith at the time and when I moved to free again I was dying squatting 375 - and muscles in complete shock for a month. On the collars - exactly... safer to tilt and slide off.

comment Supersets vs Exercise to failure
What I am saying is that the OP wants to gain mass - not be an average lifter. I never touched juice or even used supplements and my squat was well over 625 in my prime. But please use the excuse of juicing for someone working harder than you.

That doesn't sound taxing at all. It sounds like an easy day for a serious lifter. It may be a "good workout" but this routine in no way is set to build strenghth/mass.
