We said it earlier Charles doesnt count reps. Training this way is not easy to do. When you count reps you have an end in mind. A half-minute of torture abates as you get closer to that finish line of the magical 10th, 12th, or 15th rep. Charles pumps the hell out of his muscles and that means not bothering with arithmetic. Sometimes he cant really tell you how many reps he does, which is why none are listed for his lying cable skull crushers or machine dips. Like a certain drum-beating bunny, Charles just keeps going and going…and going.
NECESSITY IS THE MOTHER OF INVENTION
If you watch Charles train in the gym, you’re going to see him doing exercises you won f find in Joe Weider’s Ultimate Bodybuilding. He does skull crushers, but he does them on the seated cable row machine, the top of his head facing the stack. I watch the way people train and I think to myself, ‘If they did it this way they’d feel it here or there,'” explains Charles. Again, give it a try, and when you tire of doing skull crushers with an EZ bar or dumbbells, do lying cable skull crushers like Charles does.
