    I read a few weeks ago a article in Flex magazine (I think it was) on Andrei Arlovski. I move of glanced at it because I didn't buy it, but whatever. In the mag they quoted Arlovski in saying "I owe a big part of my fighting career to body buidling" and they also had a chart of Arlovski's lifting program, and it was ALL 4 sets / 10 reps. Benching, squats, curls, everything 4 x 10

    I was thinking to myself...that couldn't be accurate, and they must of mis quoted him...right? =/

    But they interviewed him and everything, don't you think Arlovski knew what was going to be published? Why would he just lie about his weight training routine?



    Haha do you think the company paid him off or something?

    no, I don't think it was in deal for the interview that it include or exclude a sample workout. So I think the editors at flex took it upon themselves to make one up. It's not unusual that a fighter would use a shitty routine, but it's equally likely that the one listed in the article is not his.

    It's possible that AA is lying about his routine to throw off his opponents.
    I read that he said that he worked his upper back and chest on the same day.

    4x10 may help with anaerobic threshold.

    you mean anaerobic threshold?

    its not unusual for top atheletes to have pretty appalling workout programs, they do well in their sport despite what they do in the gym not because of it, due to natural ability

    i could believe this because he trains with some Bodybuilders, however if you have been following his career he has been ripped and athletic looking the whole time

    15 curls per arm with 25 lbs dbs
    14 Dips @ BW

    GHR's 15 @ BW
    Nautilius AB 50 @ 95% stack, not so easy this time is it Cro Cop?
    12 Sit-ups @ BW
    9 Curls per arm with 25 lbs dbs

    GHR's 12 @ BW
    Nautilius AB 37 @ 95% of stack, very hard for Cro Cop

    15 Machine curls @ weight unknown
    14 Tricep Press downs @ 90% of stack
    9 Machine curls @ weight unknown

    Is Gruesome's Av of Kristen Kerr? Is that her from the 2005 movie still listed as in post-production by the IMDb? I just read Scarlett Johannson, Aaron EckHart, and Josh Harnett are going to star in a movie entitled "The Black Dahlia" directed by Brian De Palma, scheduled for release in 2006. That's pretty shameless (of Hollywood).

    That image has so intrigued me for so long (although I said nothing) that when you mentioned "The Black Dahlia," I just went and read about the history behind this murder.

    I must admit, it's fascinating.

    thats another classic example of an athelete doing well despite his gym workouts, suprising that he does GHRs considering the rest of the crap he does
