Perhaps the most notable movie scene involving menarche is that from the 1976 horror movie Carrie . Carrie White experiences her first period as she showers after the school gym class, and unaware of what is happening to her, she panics and pleads for help, but the other girls respond by bullying her. The movie is an adaptation of the novel with the same name by Stephen King . Carrie's first period unleashes her violent powers and is central to her dangerous and out of control transformation. This theme is common to horror movies, another notable example being the 2000 Canadian horror film Ginger Snaps , where the protagonist's first period is central to her gradual transformation into a werewolf . Girls experiencing their first period is part of many movies, though not central to their plot, including The Blue Lagoon , My Girl , A Walk on the Moon .
Its amazing how such infrequent one set ..or less in terms of the static hold actually does work. It does fly in the face of most bodybuilding knowledge and what has worked before in general mainstream training. The thing is I see example like gymnasts for example. There workouts are ALL static hold but for a long time and very frequent. Almost daily for hours on end. Yet have you seen their physiques. Extremely strong and muscular. How does that happen if so much rest is needed. It seems as if they do the regular style of start less then build up to doing more and more since your body is building up workload capacity is their style which does work in some ways. How do you explain such strength and muscle growth of gymnasts or those cirque do solei guys… ofcourse they do not use full range by the way. Most of the time its a static position.
