I don’t need to explain this scientifcally, since the proof is definitely in the pudding—but I will anyway. Why? Because we need to define some rules as to what strength really is. More importantly, we need to prevent guys from doing 1/8 (or 1/4) reps, and throwing things around, making an ass out of themselves in the gym and occupying space needed by people who really want to see results. I’m tired of watching guys waste time loading up machines to do less than even a partial rep. They make a spectacle of the loading, disappoint on the lift, take 10 minutes between sets, then don’t put their s—t away. Another reason why science is necessary is for those who forgot their legs existed. Let this serve as a reminder not only that friends don’t let friends skip leg day, but also that strength training, by definition, will force other muscles to fire and get big. Take a look at the abs of heavy squatters and deadlifters—trust me, no need for situps when you lift big.
This example should serve well to illustrate. Seventy percent of 100 is 70. Seventy percent of 150 is 105. While pursuing biceps bliss, would you rather be curling 70 or 105 pounds for your reps? Furthermore, if you’ve increased your max, the weight you used to do will feel much lighter. At your former load, you’ll be able to bang out plenty of reps—just like the big benchers who take 225 pounds for a 40–50 rep ride. While physiology will define it, math will prove it. It’s simple. Don’t be afraid. Don’t avoid it. Embrace it and watch your lifts increase and your size beneft as an aftereffect.
