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'...

Legs and cardio on the same day?

Is it really that bad or do people over exaggerate? What if you do one in the AM, and then one in the PM? Or can you do it in the same session? (one after the other) What do YOU personally do? Thanks!

What's possible while natural?

Hello, So I'm hoping I can get a bit of feedback. I am aspiring to begin physique competitions in the near future. My main question is, by going the natural route, is it possible for me to get anywhere close to ex. DLB status? I kill myself every day in the gym with hopes of one day achieving...

Left booty bigger than the other?

Hello! Do you guys have any suggestions to what I can do to make both booty cheeks equal size? I can feel that the right booty cheek is smaller and softer and the other one is hard and perky. It's not something I am imaginating :-) I am currently squating, deadlifting, cable kicks,...

Could I get opinions and feedback on this split I'm considering?

Okay first my current goal are to build muscle and strength in my legs. I'd like to build strength in my arms also but am not super concerned about building them because they grow very well and I'm not looking to compete or anything.

Unhappy Do bodybuilders think people that work out at home are lazy?

So I came on here to learn how to lift weights and hopefully get some advice but so far have not spoken to anyone on this site. I can't afford a trainer or a gym so working out is left up to me. "The blind leading the blind" as it were. I have posted a few topics about working out from home with...

question about training with broad shoulders/wide upper back

Hey everyone! I'm pretty new to bodybuilding, and before I establish a solid workout routine I'd like to get your opinion on something. I have an "inverted triangle" body shape, meaning my shoulders are wider than my hips. I feel like I carry most of my weight in my upper arms/upper body and...

Barbell Glute Bridge - How much weight?

I've started doing barbell glute bridges with 66lbs (the bar weighs 20 kg (45lbs) and I added 5kgs on each side). I don't feel the weight in my glutes yet - might be because their still inactive, or because the weight is too low. Also I've used a foam pad around the bar, but it feels really heavy...

Curious about PHUL - but want to tweak lower body workouts?

I've looked into some programs out there and one that I feel would suit me is PHUL. Looking at the exercises for upper body, it's basically what I do each week and I like that I can train each muscle group twice a week instead of one. Only I don't like the lower body workouts. For lower power,...

What BF% to get to before training abs?

I've heard several times that you need to lose the fat that is covering your abs before you ever see your abs. So doesn't that mean instead of spending time doing crunches and ab exercises that I should do more cardio to try and get my BF% down and better my chances of seeing abs? So what BF%...

Good time to bulk, or no?

Hi all! I'm really sorry if this is in the wrong section - feel a little like a rabbit stuck in the headlights in these forums at the moment! Short back story - a few years back I suffered severely from anorexia and, as a result, lost pretty much all the muscle mass that I naturally had. My...
