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'...

Cool Can you build muscle while breastfeeding?

I have lifted weights for years. I continued to do so up until recently (as I am 37 weeks pregnant and about to pop). Although I have kept up protein, carbs and calories, the hormonal changes of pregnancy have really turned my muscles to mush. My question: DUE TO THE UNUSUAL HORMONAL STATE OF...

Thumbs down One Body Part per day - ??! Doesn't seem to be the best use of time

So I recently have this trainer with a bodybuilding background and because I'm just getting back into things it was told to me to just do one body part per day for 5 days and include cardio as well. which is fine but seems to be not the best use of time given that it only takes me about 30 mins to...

can you develop decent quad mass with only leg ext/leg curl?

I hate to even ask, but I'm still struggling with SI joint pain, to the point that squats, deadlifts, lunges, and full ROM leg press are out of the question. It could be months before I can do any of those lifts... I don't have too many options left for working my quads, that eliminates any low...

Smile Glutes Help

I recently (since September) started going to the gym fairly regularly (once-twice a week) and working my glutes more. Up until a week ago, I have mostly been using my own body weight, and I have seen gains but nothing too big. I want to start doing more weight training but I was wondering if...

sore joints/muscles everywhere-take layoff or switch to super lightweight for awhile?

I have been hitting it pretty hard this year while bulking. I've added solid amounts to all of my lifts (except OHP, lol). I'm cutting now, and I'm finding that everything is starting to hurt - knees, hips, low back, shoulder, etc. I'm stiff, my ROM is not that great, and I'm just generally...

Cool Injured elbow preventing me from my goal. I'm SUPER depressed.

I had every intention to bulk up over the winter and gain as much muscle as I could so that at some point I'd be content to start cutting. I'm not inactive but I have not gone to a gym in years and years. I started weight lifting only 2 months ago and I have this amazing momentum. Probably because...

Bulking help (trying to get through it with my sanity)

I've been bulking for about 3 months now and, because of a lot of setbacks with personal issues and college, I haven't made as much progress as I would have liked. I'm still continuing to bulk, but am struggling with feeling good about myself. I've put on a few pounds; about a 1:3 muscle-to-fat...

What Does the Amount of Weight Represent?

Just something I was thinking about yesterday... What does lifting a heavier weight mean? Does lifting heavy directly reflect a person's strength? Does it only reflect muscle size? Is it a result of weight moved compared to body weight carried? Do muscles have to be bigger to lift heavier? Or...

Coming back after serious illness

Without getting into too much detail I've been out of the gym since the beginning of the year. Prior to that the gym was my life but then I got so sick that I couldn't go if I tried. Last month I got on a new medication and its controlling my symptoms. I'm pretty much back to life as normal....

Sumo vs Standard Deadlift

I have been having issues with doing a standard deadlift because I am scared of blowing out my back (I suffered from 3 herniated discs about 6 yrs ago). I feel that as the weight gets heavier I pull more with my back. I had someone suggest doing sumo deadlifts and for whatever reason it seems more...

shoulders hurt from front squats

I just started PHUL and I have been practicing front squats with just the bar as part of the lower hypertrophy day. They are tough because I am so used to back squats. I feel as though I have the movement correct and I am balancing the bar and not falling all over the place. The one thing I am...
