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'...

I'm bulking and the only place I really show any increase in fat is in the tricep area... not surprising as this is my weakest spot. Starting to look like batwings even though I'm doing tri exercises almost daily and also bicep curls, tri pushdowns, pushups w/diamond hands, preacher curls, tri...

glute bridge - feet or shoulders elevated?

I've been trying to master these as I'm trying to round out my glute and hamstring routine. I have tried them with my shoulders on a bench and it feels so awkward! So I do them flat on the ground, but I can do 155lbs for sets of 15 and it doesn't feel like it's working my glutes specifically. ...

Training around a shoulder injury - advice?

After noticing a bit of a weird thing going on in my left shoulder during some lifts, I went to get it checked out last night and the result is that I’ve got bursitis and tendinitis.

Taking a break

Hi, I was wondering, if you are looking to take a break from weight lifting for a while is it just a case of watching your diet to stop unwanted weight gain?

Back support belt for squats

Hey just wondering if anyone had any input on which weight is a good one to start wearing the back support belt when doing squats. I believe it's a person to person thing but I also don't want to look like a dum dum. The gym I go to has them hanging by the squat box and I see the guys wear them...

shoulders hurt from front squats

I just started PHUL and I have been practicing front squats with just the bar as part of the lower hypertrophy day. They are tough because I am so used to back squats. I feel as though I have the movement correct and I am balancing the bar and not falling all over the place. The one thing I am...

Thumbs up Digging the compound lifts

After two months of adding some heavy compound lifts I have to say I wish I had started doing them years ago. Huge changes in just two months: deadlifts have to be my new favorite. My bum is higher and tighter than before, and my abs have also tightened up. More so in just two months than the...

How many days should I lift (full body)

I have a solid program but I don't have time to do splits (leg day, chest day, etc). I can do 3-4 days, 1 1/2 hours at the gym max. Part-time job, child, dogs, etc. How many days a week should I do full body routine? I'm not lifting as heavy as many here, so I don't imagine I need 3-4 days to...
