Barbell Club - "Stand together, grow together. We're stronger as a brotherhood than we'd ever be as one."
Arm day is the sweet, decadent dessert of the Modern bodybuilder. If you don’t train your legs, you can’t have your “Arm Day”. There’s nothing like that shirt splitting pump, the looks of veins crawling from forearms to delts, and sporting the “perpetual flex”. We’ve asked Renegade Training’s founder John Davies to deliver us a piping hot day of “Guns and Glory”. Do you have what it takes to sink a bite into this Modern Session?

Renegade Notes: Diet
It is a simple fact; no training plan can overcome a poor diet. Within the confines of the ‘iron game’ and sport training, those on the podium respect the importance of diet.
Those that disregard the importance of diet need to discuss the podium for it is no less that half of the ‘athletic development’ equation. Contrary to the complexities of training and managing challenges of injuries, diet is relatively simple and solved with one unyielding fact; ‘real food’.
Healthy wholesome ‘real food’, grew from soil, once scampered along the ground, flew in the air or swam in the waterways. That is the basis of healthy diet and the common ground of athletes on the podium.
