Not training abs

I've recently stopped directly training my abs entirely. Prior to this, I did about 2x/week. I feel like my abs were getting really 'blocky' for lack of a better word and was concerned about losing my waist. My thought process is that I'll still be indirectly working them with squats, deadlifts,...

adapting PHUL for knee problems?

I want to run PHUL for my next program, however I've been told not to do lunges/leg extensions by an orthopaedic surgeon as I have a problem with my left knee (though he doesn't know what that problem is!) what should I substitute for these exercises?

Unsolicited advice in the gym...

So I was at the gym today, halfway through my workout with my headphones in, minding my own business, when this guys walks up to me and says "umm, are you breathing when you're in the middle of your reps?" In my head, I'm just like who the hell are you and why are you talking to me? He's like "you...

Hello Everyone! On Oct 26th I am scheduled to have a lower body lift to remove about 30 pounds of excess skin from losing 100+pounds (about 150 to be exact). I have been lifting since January and have gained some muscle, which is hidden by the excess skin. My plastic surgeon suggested that I...

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...

Stalling on the Overhead Press

So I'm running Starting Strength, and my overhead press sucks major balls. I started with just the bar and was adding 5lbs per session. On the seventh "B" session, I failed at 75. I could only do two reps. I also failed the bench the same week, at 110lbs- I could only do a 1x5 and then a 1x3. ...

Bench press stall (5x5)

Currently cutting and struggling to improve bench. My bench didn't go up that much even when i was bulking. I'm still a beginner so i don't see why my lifts wouldn't increase on a cut let alone a bulk. So now I'm stuck at 42kg/92.6lb for 5x5. I have tried doing 44kg/97lb but cannot even manage 2...

Deadlifting 5X5 twice a week

Hi, I'm doing an alternate day 3 X full body routine. In a workout A B A (1st week), B A B (2nd week) format. Deadlifts are in workout B, hence, is it okay to be deadlifting 5x5 twice a week? I feel okay even after 5X5. Thanks!
