    Ive heard good things about both, as an MMA fighter who is getting a workout while training and doing SnC on the side which is a better option pairing back n bi as major major muscle group or the back/tri for the off support. Ive been told both but apparently off supporting (back/tri) can easily cause over training. Just wanted to check what everyone else has to say.

    Training split body parts is not a good idea for an athlete, unless we're talking upper/lower.

    Train full body or lower/upper split.

    All I was looking for was an answer but I bet ya it took 3x as long to type that out than to simply hit the "back" button. But thanks you for being an asshole

    Do you train quads/hams, or hams/quads? The answer to that might make all the difference.

    Tsugaru gives the right answer and gets called names for it

    This will be good

    Read the FAQ's, then at least you can ask informed stupid questions

    I'm going to say TS is either a troll or an ass, and doesn't deserve a correct answer. Which makes it unfortunate he was already given one.

    You could probably use some hammer curls to help with the elbow pain you complain about...

    And that edit makes a ton of sense...

    If the Cratos was strong with that guy, he'd just be a guy that works through aches and pains and continues to enjoy regular progress in all his lifts.

    Doesn't sound so bad to me. You might even want to try it.

    I just noticed that BAM removed the "why are you anti-bodybuilding" question from the S&P FAQ.

    Because of that one thread. The one we're supposed to link to potential BBers.

    Oh yeah that thread that I can never find and didn't even know existed until a few weeks ago. It should probably be linked in the FAQ.
