    I do stationary lunges, because I don't know where I have the space in my gym to do walking lunges. Aren't they the same thing? *exercising muscles-wise* (I know the difference)

    Walking lunges do seem pretty cool, though...

    Walking lunges are popularised by this young Arlington cop called Ronnie.
    After a grueling legs workout, he will load 2 20 Kg plate on a universal bar and walk up and down the carpark twice. Of course many scoffed at him. Sounds familiar here.

    Years later and many Sandows won by this same cop, lunges or walking lunges is now a staple for many of the top bodybuilders in the world.

    Beasty, stop posting and save yourself time and the rest of us some brain cells.

    Ronnie Coleman is on HGH, Test, and horse steroids (winstrol). Why the fuck would you try to work out like him? He has such an exaggerated growth response that he can do almost anything and get massive.

    What is your evidence Ronnie are on those things? If not, you are doing a great disservice to the sport, the man, his hardwork and his legion of fans.

    I would also point out IFBB strenously drug test competitors in Mr Olympia and have stripped competitors who failed the tests even medalists. I would think Ronnie being repeated champ (on par with the great Lee) would be tested more vigorously since he was competiting and beating men younger than him.

    Hence unless you have iron clad proof, an apology to Ronnie, IFBB and Ronnie's fans is in order.

    Ronnie Coleman is on HGH, Test, and horse steroids (winstrol).
    Even if true, it's highly likely that his competitors were also on HGH, test, and roids, yet Ronnie still managed to win 8 consecutive Mr. Olympias, meaning that Ronnie does something better than everyone else (or has better genetics than everyone else).

    What kind of fucked up logic is that? Cheetahs run over 50mph, therefore if you want to run faster you need to get down on all fours and hunt gazelles.

    If doing that can make me as fast as a Cheetah and if doing lunges can make my quads as big as Ronnie's, I will do it.

    Yes. Indeed he does something better than everyone else.
    He lifts heavier, longer, tougher.
    He trains smarter, and more efficient.
    He diets better, smarter.

    Okay, this isn't exactly what you requested, but it's still one of the funniest commercials I've ever seen.



    And now can we either let this thread die or go back to discussing lunges? Why do so many of our weight-lifting threads morph into fights over who's using steroids?

    Its very simple: jealousy.

    Rather than putting in the effort to train balls to the balls to a vomit inducing state or train or rest or diet when the whole world is partying and pigging out, it is infinitely easier to disparage the efforts of others and post bitchy remarks on the internet instead.

    If these people spend the same time doing the latter, in the gym instead, they will have an incremental increase in their physiques and more importantly they will have better mental psyches and be less bitter as well.

    It's not a fight...Ronnie Coleman isn't natural.
