You guys need to make sure you understand what is being said here. More is not always better until you are far more experienced.
This was a good warning:
Quote: Don’t get me wrong, safety is the most important thing. Gradual increases is the key. The body is capable of some amazing things. Look at professional fighters - they are able to take repeated brutal hits to the face without even a bruise or cut - where most people would be in the hospital from that kind of abuse. What’s the key? Adaptation. The body will adapt to almost anything. You have to work up to the high intensity work that is needed for big gains. The limiting factor is the soft tissue: skin, blood vessels, etc. With enough conditioning, those tissues will be tough and you will be able to really stretch the tunica to the point where you will make REAL GAINS. Newbies will hurt themselves with thrombosed veins because the softer tissues are weak and can’t handle the stress.
The only thing I don’t like about post like this is the newbies usually end up hurt because of lack of experience. Just know you body and the signs.
