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'...

can you develop decent quad mass with only leg ext/leg curl?

I hate to even ask, but I'm still struggling with SI joint pain, to the point that squats, deadlifts, lunges, and full ROM leg press are out of the question. It could be months before I can do any of those lifts... I don't have too many options left for working my quads, that eliminates any low...

Bulking help (trying to get through it with my sanity)

I've been bulking for about 3 months now and, because of a lot of setbacks with personal issues and college, I haven't made as much progress as I would have liked. I'm still continuing to bulk, but am struggling with feeling good about myself. I've put on a few pounds; about a 1:3 muscle-to-fat...

I'd like your feedback on this workout.

I've started this program after finishing Jim Stoppani's Beginner to Advanced. http://traineatgain.com/power-bodybuilding-4-day-split-program/ The workout by Stoppani had high volume and I had great results. I'm liking this program but I wondering if I can still get results since it seems a...

Sumo vs Standard Deadlift

I have been having issues with doing a standard deadlift because I am scared of blowing out my back (I suffered from 3 herniated discs about 6 yrs ago). I feel that as the weight gets heavier I pull more with my back. I had someone suggest doing sumo deadlifts and for whatever reason it seems more...

Can't add more weight-what are my options?

Right now, I work out at home with 100lb barbell set. I've reached the max with my squats and deadlifts and we won't be getting an upgrade for about another month.

Thumbs down One Body Part per day - ??! Doesn't seem to be the best use of time

So I recently have this trainer with a bodybuilding background and because I'm just getting back into things it was told to me to just do one body part per day for 5 days and include cardio as well. which is fine but seems to be not the best use of time given that it only takes me about 30 mins to...

Is this reversible with training?

My knees go in - it's not my favorite attribute. I've had it my whole life and my boyfriend makes fun of me for it (in a nice way), but it really bothers me sometimes. I'm a runner and don't do a ton of weight lifting- just getting in to it. It's pretty clear that the inside of my leg has...

need help creating a workout plan for abs

I know that diet is going to be incredibly important, I've worked out before, and did pretty well, but it was about a year ago.

Lower body tweaks needed?

I have questions about my lower body progress. I'm only 5-6 months into my training so it may be just that I don't have enough time invested yet.

What Does the Amount of Weight Represent?

Just something I was thinking about yesterday... What does lifting a heavier weight mean? Does lifting heavy directly reflect a person's strength? Does it only reflect muscle size? Is it a result of weight moved compared to body weight carried? Do muscles have to be bigger to lift heavier? Or...

Lift twice in a day - Nutrition & Advice?

Hey guys, Firstly, I usually lift in the A.M and have that out of the way already today with chest and shoulders. So I just got news that I have to make a 2000km road trip to the missus family over the weekend and they live in the "Bush" so not much happening in terms of fitness equipment. ...

sore joints/muscles everywhere-take layoff or switch to super lightweight for awhile?

I have been hitting it pretty hard this year while bulking. I've added solid amounts to all of my lifts (except OHP, lol). I'm cutting now, and I'm finding that everything is starting to hurt - knees, hips, low back, shoulder, etc. I'm stiff, my ROM is not that great, and I'm just generally...
