Two plates for seated Mil Press - Smith (video)

Did my seated Mil press tonight on the smith to relieve some pain on my shoulder. The smith is easier than regular free weights so I did the two plates (I normally do a plate and a quarter) and it felt right about the same as the plate & the quarter. I will say there was very very little...

Weight lifting straps

I have a pair of loop lifting straps which are ok but there isn't a lot of adjustment in them (for lack of a better explanation) and in certain positions they are bit awkward to get on and off. So I am wondering how do you use the single tail lifting straps?

Angry Personal Trainers with no personality

Ah, the joys of Monday mornings and back workouts. The gym I use has no dead lift platform so I used the rack. Did my dead lifs, unloaded the plates, and went on to the next exercises. Meanwhile in the Smith machines next to me, a guy is doing shrugs as part of some sort of giant set. His is...
