Why does it feel like the brunt of the deadlift is in my lower back?

I've lifted off and on for years but never gave the deadlift the attention it deserves due to lack of equipment and not fully appreciating what an important exercise it is. Anyway, now that I'm sold on deadlifts, I've watched all the instructional videos and have started with light weight, making...

Hi everyone! My name is Rickey. I'm 5'6'' and currently weigh 355 lbs. I've lost over 50lbs from walking every week, but I ran into a snag.

Heel Issues Squatting

Hi Guys, I'm finally getting my form down for squatting, getting nice and low - but I'm still having problems keeping my heels to the floor. Though I'm not feeling any injury pangs yet, I'm sure that it's not best to have those heels up. I squat bare foot, it was the same with shoes,...

Angry Deadlift bouncing..

I see so many people bouncing the bar from the ground on the deadlift, to create a momentum. When I first started I also did it, because I didn't knew much about deadlift and bodybuilding in general. Then one a big dude came up to me and said I should stop bouncing and leave the bar dead for every...

Push up targeting serratus not pec

When doing push ups, I only feel it in my left pec, and my right serratus - right pec gets next to no stimulation. Why is this? How do I fix it? It's driving me mad. I do not have this problem when benching

Complete Noob set question.

Hi all, So i'm a bit confused by sets. If i'm supposed to be doing 5 sets of 6,5,4,3 & 2 am right in thinking this means doing each set 5 times? Also do i do it in the same order or is it 5 sets of 6 reps, then onto 5 sets of 5 reps then 5 sets of 4 reps etc etc? Thanks :)

Can the bicep curl machine cause significant imbalance

I love the bicep machine as much as I do dumbbells. I get such an amazing pump but I'll always feel my right bicep getting a bit more of a workout than my left. I fear I'll have to stop using it and just stick to dumbbells for a while :/

Stalling on RDL due to grip...

I'm unable to increase the weight on my RDL, not due to what I feel is a lack of strength, but because my grip weakens and I feel like the bar is going to fall out of my hands. I feel like my fingers are doing all the work and it obviously messes with my concentration. If my grip were stronger, I...
