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'...

Question Squats during monthly period

I hope someone can help me out here... I did 2 leg workouts while I was on my period over the last few days. For some reason, when I did my squats on both days I had quite a bit of discomfort/pain on the very top inside of both my thighs. I had no problems lifting the actual weight(100-115lbs),...

What's everyone's training look like?

Just curious about how everyone is training. Like if you are doing a split training, or total body training. Or if you are following a specific type of program.

Tricep rant most recent of several)

So I hate my triceps. I recently bulked up over 8 months and am now on a mini-cut (just a couple pounds for bikini season). My arms have bulked up a little, and overall look better. But I have tricep jiggle (still) and now that I"ve gained some weight it seems worse. The question is, how...

Question Deadlifts

I feel stupid asking this question, but am I doing something incorrect here? I'm not feeling much burn *at all* anywhere but my lower erectors. I know I used to feel my DLs in my hams, but I had a way too long layoff, so maybe I'm messing it up now or something? My plan has me doing DLs after...

Hamstrings - RDL and leg curl questions

First question. I am finding that, when I do RDLs, my grip seems to go bad after about 8-9 reps unless I keep the weight very very light. I'm doing 75 lbs. right now and can get to 12 reps but have to stop and reset my grip in order to finish the set. Last week at 90 lbs. I could get up to 7 or 8...

? About squats...

I wanted to run strong lifts 5x5, but I have problems with squats. Whenever I put the bar on my back with any weight, I feel like it's compressing my spine & it's uncomfortable. To the point that I can't add weight, even though my legs could handle it. So I squat with a bar in front or with a...

deadlift energy leak

As I increase the weight on my deadlift I notice I am having some issues that I would like to address. I am deadlifting 145 for 8 reps and by the time I get to about the fourth rep I notice my left leg kinda wobble a little bit. I know that this is my weak side leg because when I do my unilateral...

New love-affair with cardio, but is this bad? (heart rate question)

I used to despise cardio days.... Now I am loving it, not to the point where I go too long, but have my heart rate up there pretty high most of the time. I do about 20 min on the step mill, then move to the stationary bike for another 20 min. (3 times a week) I'm 49 and by using that...

Sets/Reps for Planks, and Glute Bridges.

At the risk of asking a stupid question, how many sets should one do for isometrics like planks, and glute/hip bridges? Is each set just holding one rep until muscle failure, or should it be held for a certain time for multiple reps until failure?

PLEASE critique my squat form!

I have had so many issues squatting and it feels so awkward to me. I can barely squat any weight without my knees caving inward and I'm not sure how to go about fixing this aside from taking weight off the bar until it doesn't happen. Should I just keep squatting, squat with bands around my legs...
