Sticky Thread Sticky: Daily Workout - Challenges and Victories

In light of the extreme focus this board has in regards to the 'body beautiful' (and the frustration that results in people not 'getting results fast enough'), I thought I would create a sticky that changed the focus a little.... This is a thread for posters to use to recognise 'every day'...

Why should women train chest?

Ok, this may be totally obvious, but why should a woman train chest? We have boobs, not pecs. I do train chest (usually with Back), but I've been questioning lately if this is really necessary or not. I'd like to hear your opinions on how Chest exercises affect a woman's physique!

Training with hoodie or not?

Hi, I'm doing the Ashley Conrad program right now, and she suggests to wear a hoodie to loose water weight and eliminate toxins. In that way, it's speeding up metabolism. Is it right or not?

Overhead squats. Do you do them? What is the primary benefit?

I tried these today for the first time. Man, they were surprisingly hard! I was able to use around 55 lbs for sets of 8. Although I can press a lot more than that, squatting with the bar overhead was a completely different animal. I like doing them just because it's something new and...
