I am a 24 year old female who is new to working out. I have only really gotten into lifting in the past year and a half to two years.

Deadlift form critique :) ?

I don't really deadlift, it's not really in my program that I'm following (only kettlebell and RDL) but I just did this one for fun at the end of one of my training days. I'm sure I could've gone heavier but as I said, it was at the end of a full body workout day :D I think the only issue I had...

Muscle swelling & tightness?

Over the last couple weeks, I've noticed that my left bicep and tricep seem to swell while I'm working them. They start feeling really tight about halfway through my workout, while my right side is feeling just fine and has zero swelling. After the workout, they feel kind of doughy and soft to the...

I've recently decided to go for my first legitimate bulk, but I feel totally lost on how to find a good training routine for my goals. I'd like to add as much size as I can to my lower body and build up my legs and particularly glutes. A lot of people seem to say that a 3 or 4 day, total-body,...

Question How many lbs does the average woman lift?

My husband tells me a man is considered strong if he is able to lift his own bodyweight or higher. Is the same true of women? Should I be trying to work up to that?

Confused about how to prioritize

Several years ago I was in the best shape of my life doing MMA/BJJ. I lifted nothing except perhaps kettlebells and keeping my hands up with 16 oz gloves on them. I looked amazing, diet was tight, and had a 4 pack. Then I got a SLAP tear and had to rehab. It was all downhill from there - some...

Talking Model body?

I want to diet and workout for a model like body and lose about.. 8 or 9 lbs while still retaining a kind of lean and slender look? I also noticed that being skinnier makes you appear more taller but that's not important since I'm like a 5'8 female.
