I watch the videos of Muscle and Motion all the time. As I have said before they are the best in animation in training I have ever seen. BUT, do the know that many of their materal may be old…as I would say. Here is a great video on “chest” BUT when you start doing upper and ower chest with a bar you reduce the range of motion and the arms tire out first. So I developed my version of cables that I feel just work upper and lower directly. You decide.

Update: Obviously this article has been posted before. In 2019 I see more and more videos and articles continue to teach what has been taught before with no thoought of how muscle work and mistakes that are made. I post this again as a way to show people what is to come .
“With some many videos and diagrams available on the market today how do we as bodybuilders and sports trainers really know what is right”?
And I say that trying to give some a little credit. How do you know truth about exercise form. Or better yet what is bullshit? Hopefully after reading this article you may get some idea of just how much misinformation if out there an how better to learn the truth.
One of the things I got involved in years ago when I was writing For Ironman Magazine under the column of Muscle Coach was using drawings to illustrate the correct form to do exercises. My teacher at the time Robert K. Blom RPT always drummed into my head as many teachers do was the importance of understanding the muscle you want to work and getting the form right from the beginning. Now of course you have heard this before. Now you have to remember this was long before the internet and especially You Tube where you could upload videos of the form you use.
The Benchpress, Bench Press, written as many ways the methods to do it. Now add to this the current trend in blogs and web pages to put giant steriod monsters or benchpress tips with guys using 300 kilos on them, how does anyone ever know where to start.
I wanted to make a simple video for the beginner or average fitness or sports person to have a general idea of just that. Where do I start.
