I've heard that some exercises actually make you weaker, how does that happen? Are there any other negative side effects to those workouts?

Some questions about goals

Hello! I'm a 22 year old female, 165cm and 118lbs, hoping to get bodyfat measured tomorrow - but going on the highly unscientific 'what my body sort of looks like' I'd guess my body fat to be around 22%. I'm in the performance industry (acting/circus etc) and for this reason I don't want to...

Perimenopause

Anyone out there who has been there, done that regarding perimenopause/HRT. Is there no hope for losing remaining 15 pounds of fat? Gaining muscle? My body seems to do what it wants, not what I want these days. It gets very frustrating, which is why I joined this last week.

PHUL vs. Push/Pull/Legs - Bulking Workout Plan

I have been researching and trying to find the best plan to use for my bulk this fall. Currently I'm considering the PHUL plan or Nick Ludlow's Push/Pull/Legs plan. (Both programs can be found on Muscle and Strength's website by googling their title). Does anyone have experience with either of...

Better WH ratio

Okay so I'm 19, kind of skinny-fat. My WH ratio was pretty good (around .65 I think) but I've gained some weight and I think it decreased a little (I'm around 35-28-35). I really want to get curvier, and I don't mind gaining fat for that, but the issue is most of it went to my gut, so now I'm...

Callouses and grip issues

So what is everyone's opinion on weight lifting gloves? I have heard mixed opinions -- some say it interferes with grip, and others swear by them.

Absorbtion problems and bodyfat

After a long history of being malnourished (over 10 years), I wanted to become more healthy and fit by going to the gym.
