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'...

should i replace dips?

I have dips in my routine and i was so excited once i was finally able to do a couple reps of unassisted ones. however, they absolutely destroy my shoulders. So much so that it is starting to effect the way my shoulders feel doing other exercises as well. I'm wondering if i'm doing them right...

Question Is curling 85lbs a realistic goal?

A big boss at my workplace challenged me to curl 85lbs by the time I'm done my internship (I've got 1 year), in return for a recommendation for a full-time job (yes, ridiculous i know). I just lifted 65lbs for 3 sets of 4 then 70lbs for 2 sets of 2 right off the bat. Keep in mind that it was done...

Beginner at weightlifting, scared of lifting alone?

Hi all! I've been working out doing 3 resistance sessions and 2 cardio sessions, five mornings a week, since January 5th this year. I have lost a little body fat (not much), and hardly gained any muscle in 8 months. I'm definitely fitter than I was, but I look exactly the same visually, and...

Unsolicited advice in the gym...

Curious about women's bench press...

Ladies! What does everyone typically bench when using a standard 45 lb barbell? If doing 3 sets, I do one warm up of the bar then 65x12 then 75x6. I have been upping each week and I usually aim to do a weight for 6 reps. Once I get that, I move up. I am curious to see what other women are...

"starting a cut"?

I have no idea what this and the stickies weren't helpful...I assume it means you're starting a "toning" (i read a sticky say that's not a thing but idk what else to call it) workout as opposed to bulking up? Also, I assume people in the gym with notebooks are writing down what...

Beginners hitting a muscle 1x week

Does this produce an iota of results that 3-4 x a week does? I keep seeing people (with a year or less experience) doing it but it goes against everything I've ever learned about lifting. Is it poor planning or does it actually give decent results?

Question Trouble getting hamstrings to "activate" during deadlifts

With deadlifts.... I know the major muscle it works is the lower back... but should you feel it in the hamstrings at all? I feel like my hamstrings don't really "activate" much. I've rarely ever in the past felt much in my hamstrings from any exercises. It seems like my quads and other...
