post #37 of 50

Adam Scott and his personal trainer appeared on a fitness episode of the Golf Channel a few month's back highlighting his intense workout routine. As a former surfer, surfing is great for the lats but doesn't build big biceps.

It doesn't work them at all. The triceps may get some work done, but not enough to make any significant muscle mass gain.

Exactly.

Thank you very much.

 

As much as I'd like to believe one can increase muscle mass without working out on a daily basis and/or drugs, reality sets in.

That is just wrong!  You're saying that everyone in the world would have to work out in a gym on a daily basis to increase muscle mass?  That's absurd!!  What about construction workers, brick layers, roofers, etc....

 

My dad has a dozer and backhoe business.  That's all he has done his entire life.  The last thing on his mind is working out.  His forarms and tri's are as big as just about any body builder at my gym.  Explain that one with your logic?

 

 

Any time your arms bends and straightens with tension, you are working your biceps and triceps....NO way around it.  This all seems like common sense to me.  We are not talking about body building here.

 

 

I guess I'll just agree to disagree as I have thrown this into something other than what the thread was about. Sorry guys

One last thing, just so I show a little intelligence about the subject.  I understand how muscle adaptation works and I understand that "work" is not a substitute for working out.  Obviously, I know that working out in the gym will lead to quite a bit more muscle gain than just work because work lacks the muscle stress and training to failure that the gym incorporates. But I have seen so many cases of guys that do not go to the gym gaining muscle that there is no way I believe that one must hit the gym to increase muscle mass.

 

 

Great discussion though!

I agree with you. Of course I'd count construction as working out. It's pretty obvious people who work in contracting and construction have more muscle mass than the average Joe.

 

What I meant to say is you don't get muscle mass just sitting there, desk jockeying, doing the cubicle thing, going about your daily life without messing about with heavy things.

 

Let me rephrase:

 

As much as I'd like to believe one can increase muscle mass without dealing with heavy objects on daily basis and/or drugs, reality sets in.

I agree with that. A sedentary lifestyle is no good. I guess I should've known that's what you were referring to.

I'm not exactly writing in long form - you can't read my mind over the interwebs. :-)

im guessing he does some preacher curl/concentration curl work.  the preachers get the nice long bicep where theres hardly any gap at the bottom.  people can get big biceps naturally but they dont get long like that without work.

He probably lifts 2-3 days a week... not that much but half hour 2-3 tines a week with enough protein can get you muscles like that (if you know how to lift properly)

What machines you talking about?

I've never picked up a weight in my life. Turn a pipe wrench for a living and make Scott's arms look like noodles.

In short i agree with most, he certainly hits the gym. What makes most recognize that is how lean he is. Is he the biggest on tour? no way but probably is one of the most fit. Whos the biggest on tour? I think tiger has some serious upper body mass. Woodland maybe?
