Sticky Thread Sticky: Daily Workout - Challenges and Victories

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? What about other exercises like dumbbell curls or tricep kickbacks? I work within what's comfortable for me, but what's the average?...

Question How often do you Squat?

Just wondering how often you all do squats? If you do them more then 2 times a week, would that be overtraining? If your trying to gain muscle, how many reps/sets would be good? Thanks for your responses. :)

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...

Learning basic lifts on your own

Headaches/dizziness on leg day

For a few weeks I've noticed that I always get a headache and feel dizzy during my leg workouts. I can't figure it out -- I always stay hydrated when I'm in the gym, I'm eating a lot (2600c min, most days), and I always eat about an hour before I train. It's really making my workouts suck because I...

Unsolicited advice in the gym...

So much conflicting information... Does it REALLY matter as long as I'm consistent?

I'm fairly inexperienced in weightlifting & have a history of spastically jumping from program to program (it always seems there's new information or a program that swears to work better than whatever I'm doing). Needless to say, I'm making very little progress. I'm looking to put on some muscle...

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,...
