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'...

Butt question- The upper glutes

I've been trying to add some size to my butt, specifically to get some shape in the upper glutes. I've been doing lunges, deep squats, good mornings, etc. and when I do squats and dead lifts, I always try to give a good squeeze at the upper part of the movement. So far haven't had the best results....

How much should I squat?

I'm 5'11" about 136 lbs right now, and was told (somewhat rudely) that squatting 135 lbs with a goal of hypertrophy was pathetic and that something must be wrong with me for only being able to lift such a small amount of weight. Granted, I used to squat about 160 lbs in a comparable workout, but I...

Kinetic bands - are they a good workout for legs?

I never feel like I get a good leg workout even though my lower legs are rock hard and upper legs are slowly looking better. I just don't feel like the leg machines at my new gym really do much for upper legs. I do some squats though can't go very heavy due to having scoliosis. Technically I'm not...

How much cardio should I do?

I know that there's been some similar threads about this, but I'm quite a bit heavier than most people here.
