Seemingly inconsequential yet important squat tips

Even after 7 years of lifting, still learning new stuff. Doing smolov, and the frequency / volume is enough to start tinkering with things just to make it easier. A few dozen youtube videos and who knows how many websites a tip of many that I played with actually had astounding results. ...

Dumbbell Side Bends

I'm wondering what has been the experience of others with this exercise? Did it make any difference if you did them? I've read that some bodybuilders believe they just add to your waist and work against the tapered look that bodybuilders strive for. Others disagree. What's your take on this?
