The other night I went to watch the action film to end all action films (It felt like I should’ve said ‘movie’ then, but I don’t want to sound all american!)……………………..

……The EXPENDABLES (Click for trailer).

 

While the plot was as expected from a Stallone film (Think ROCKY), the thrills and action was a mile-a-minute, with probably one 3-4 minute period in the film I can remember nothing being blown up, or someone having the living sh*t kicked out of them.

Anyway, You should see some of the physiques these guys have. You might’ve already seen Stallone ripped (see below) in his sixties, and his crew of expendable assassins was nothing short of SCARY. You would not like to meet anyone looking like this down the street on a dark night.

In my last post “Haha I thought I’d seen it all”, I mentioned that our culture seems to be that people want ‘the easy way out’ or they want it all for doing as little as possible. If you want to look as big and bad as these guys, you CANNOT AFFORD to take the easy way out.

The baddest looking dude I thought – was Terry Crews. Check out this pic – he used to be an american football player.

 

American football training is very similar to the training I coach on a Saturday morning at the Mens Strength and Condtitioning Bootcamp. We re talking Farmers walks that will build big thick forearms and traps ……..

We re talking chin ups and chin-up variations and tricep work that explodes arms like nothing else………

…..and  who could forget heavy deadlifts building a thick back.

 

I bet a few people are thinking ” Cammish….. Thats all fine and dandy, but I already do those things………I mean, I do a couple of lat pull downs, before my Spinning class! AND(!)……………… I do deadlifts in BODYPUMP!

I think you and I both know that these guys DO NOT do BODYPUMP, or spinning, and I want to tell you that you CANNOT FLEX BONE! If you want to look more muscular, you might have to reduce your cardio to add some BADASS MUSCLE!  If there is no muscle – getting leaner will not do you any more favours. I can tell you from coaching over 100 clients, and from my own personal experience in my own training – is that you will not get fat overnight from cutting some hours of cardio, and spending some time doing some chin ups, presses, squats and deadlifts…….and in fact this could be the best thing you could ever do.

Or, is it that you’re too scared?!!!

Now that summer is on the way out, and bigger clothes are coming back at this time of year…………maybe its time to stop all the p*ssying about and try to add some muscle?

Might be something to think about.

Anyway!!! A John Cammish Blog Post would not be complete without something funny to start your week off!

Check this p*ss funny Terry Crews exercise video, on EURO TRAINING………..and DON’T TRY THESE AT HOME…..OR THE GYM!

Take home points?

Terry Crews is funny AND massive.  

Get to work lifting heavy or go home.
