getting overwhelmed - should i always keep it simple?

I've been getting really overwhelmed the past few weeks with exercises and thinking about how the slightest tweak in a movement can change which muscles are being targeted. Take back for example - i know the general fact that you should include a pull from the ground, a vertical pull and a...

First attempt at low bar squat, form check!

Hello guys. Posted a thread 2 days ago asking for some fixes for my poor form with the high bar squat. Decided to give the low bar squat a shot so I spent about 1.5 hours in the gym today squatting. Overall I like it a bit better as I feel the bar travels in a more straight path, but perhaps...

First ever squat form check. Forward lean?

Hey guys. I got 3 squat videos, each with different weights on. It feels like I am doing a slight forward lean on my squats instead of keeping the bar above mid-foot. Bad posture, bad form, or bad mobility? You be the judge. Also how is depth? Not sure how to embed videos so here they are. ...

Angled Standing Squat Machine

I have what may be a dumb question, but I can't seem to find the answer on the internet. I've been using an angled squat machine at my gym - it's angled so I'm leaning forward not backward.

Cardio on off days.

I'm doing Fierce 5 upper/lower routine right now, 4 days a week. On my off days instead of jogging would it be ok to do some HIIT workouts involving some light dumbbells/kettlebells or bodyweight exercises? Or is that too much strain on your muscles to allow proper recovery? Thanks.
