Very beginner leg day advice.

Hello all, I'm trying to get my wife into lifting and shes doing well. Haven't gotten to a leg day yet because she is scared about the soreness. She went to a 1 hour "fitness test" where the trainer put her through some work including squats and leg extentions. She was very sore for about 5 days...

Question Training to bulk up.. Please help!

I am currently reverse dieting (to fix my metabolism from way too many years of <1400 calories and no carbs), but hoping to bulk up as much as possible this winter (I'm looking at a 16-20 week bulk). I've got help with my nutrition, but I'm confused as to what I need to do to help see results...

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...

Breast implants and chest exercises?

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...

Any MI40 Ladies??!

I ran the MI40x and just finished it a couple weeks ago. It was completely different than anything I had done before and definitely pushed me to my limit.

recovery: CNS vs. muscle

When doing Stronglifts 5x5, there are times when the rest between sets could be as much as 3-5 minutes. That's a long time! I'll do it, though, when the situation calls for it. I recently read somewhere (can't recall if it was in a Stronglifts email or what) that the central nervous system takes...

ever use the hack squat machine face-down?

Lately I've seen a couple women doing this. I don't know them at all so I didn't want to ask the reason why they were doing this. But I figured someone here must know! I did, out of curiosity *try* this face-down hack squat thingy. It was awkward to get into position, but depending on foot...
