10 Ways You're Consuming More Calories Than You Think

This hit home for me - mostly because I used to be one of those people who were eating 1200 calories a day and couldn't lose weight. At that time, I didn't track vegetables or condiments, and I eyeballed everything. For all of you who think you are stalled at a low calorie intake... Read it, learn...

Why am I barely losing any weight?

Hello. I have been struggling to lose weight since late May. I have been about 172.6 lbs from the end of May until the end of June. In July I have been eating 2000 calories a day and exercising about 6-7 days a week (cardio, HIIT and strength). I am a female and 5'8 and almost 21. I just weighed...

My back squat progress has come to a standstill.

I have been progressively adding weight to the bar for my back squat. I have added about 90 lb in 6 months. Now that I'm getting up there in numbers (for me, anyway) my form is falling apart and I can't seem to add weight. I am able to do sets of 12 with 140, but I literally *can't* keep my...

Where do you hold fat?

Just a mini gripe.. my shoulders and chest keep getting leaner, but my abs and upper thighs have stalled. I guess it's just how my body naturally carries fat, but I want leaner abs, not more veins on my shoulders and striations on my chest! Anyone else want to complain with me so I'm not alone?...

Hi! I'm currently nursing my one and a half year old son and I've finally gotten to a good weight where I can start building some muscle.

Question Well....Why Not 15-20 rep range?!!

I've been working out for quite some time now and my routine (3-day split) usually consists of 3 sets of 8-10 reps. However, I am curious as to why so many people are against high reps/low weight? What would be the difference in a person who works in the 8-10 rep range vs someone who works in the...

Guys Staring at the Gym..How do you take it?

First let me say there's a difference between staring, and noticing. For example, I never stare at women at the gym when they're stretching/exercising, mainly because I don't want to be seen as a weirdo or pervert or anything like that, but I'm sorry, when a woman with a nice body comes in with a...

Cool Girls-What is the Stupidest thing anyone has told you about lifting?

I was told this past weekend by my Aunt who is an RN (from back in the day, mind you. No education in over 20 years), that I should be careful lifting heavy weights or I could prolapse my uterus.

Smile I can front squat but can't back squat.

Hi there, My legs have always been the weakest part of my body which is weird! About 8 months ago I started to focus on my legs training them twice a week. However I can't even squat the bar by itself without my upper body leaning too much forward. I tried the front squat and that was no...

Lifting shoes

Hi, I'm on the lookout for some shoes for weight training. I think I would like one of those "crossfitter type" shoes like Nike Metcon or Reebok Nano. I'm not interested in heeled lifting shoes or Chuck Taylors. The problem is, I have very narrow feet - do you know of a good alternative to the...

Leg Presses - what weight do you do?

I've recently just started going to the gym. Did some strength training for thighs and butt today and found that I quite like the 'leg press' machine. Just wondering if you use it and if so, what weight do you do it on and how many reps/sets before you get tired?

What are yours floor press (or bench press) : squat ratios?

I've noticed my FP:SQ ratio is 1. I always thought legs should be stronger than the arms and the ratio maybe more like 0,5 or 0,75? I don't have a bench at home, so I do floor presses instead. Post your ratios and add a comment of which exercises (ex. BP/SQ or FP/SQ).

Morally ambiguous gym question
