As with any exercise, Vince Gironda stressed isolation of the hamstring muscle.
Train At Vince Gironda’s Gym and Achieve Your Wild Physique
I am intrigued about Vince Gironda’s idea of training 21 days and resting seven – have you tried it or have you known Vince to strongly recommend it?
Vince Gironda always recommended various forms of front squatting with the heels raised, and or hacks and sissy squats but these exercises have always been rough on my knees.
Did Vince Gironda have a five-day colon kit that would shrink the abs and did he have a list of 15 steps to good health?
Vince Gironda recommended manganese for joint problems, and I see that it is one of the ingredients in the Joint-EZ formula. What do you think of glucosamine? How does it compare in effectiveness to manganese? Thanks again for your advice.
I’m a former fat guy turned fitness devotee. The magazines would call me a mesomorph. I’m currently at around 15% body fat, following an extended cutting period. I felt that my body was no longer responding to diet after such a long time, so I’ve decided to take a six-week break from cutting to see if it helps my fat-loss progress when I return.
I am doing Vince Gironda’s “Secrets of Definition” program and I have a few questions.
I trained at Vince’s Gym and never got booted out, but Ron Kosloff told me he personally saw a guy get booted out, and earlier this year I met a guy who claimed that he trained there in the early ’80s and Vince booted him out.
The 8×8 method of training was one of Vince Gironda’s favorites – something he called an “honest workout.”
Vince Gironda advocated resting as little as 10-15 seconds between sets, and even recommended working to such short rest periods that the hands never leave the weight.
