What kind of deadlift form do you use?

Previously I dropped my hips lower and felt like I generated more leg drive that way. Today I decided to try the Rippetoe way where he has you grip the bar then squeeze chest up without dropping hips too much, so the angle is a bit different. I felt like at that angle my back rounded more on the...

Shaking when doing dumbbell bench?

It's happened since I started at year ago. Is it because my muscles are fatigue? Or what? How can I prevent this, cause my friend said I look like a vibrator

Will running eat away my muscle ?

Hi All... I'm at about 135 pounds and lift twice a week. I have done pretty well adding some muscle, and I wanted to step my cardio and endurance up. I had been doing my elliptical most days and decided I wanted a bigger challenge. I went to the local running track and was able to do 2 miles in...

Please help me fix my horrible posture

Hello guys I have been working out for 5 months and I'm seeing decent gains as far as muscle and strength go. but my posture has changed and now I look so hideous from the side that I just want to quit and go back to looking like a skeleton (I didn't have this problem when I was skinny). I...

Increasing Weights Versus Lactic Acid?

Earlier today I was using the shoulder press machine. I put the weight on 27.5 and I was only able to do in the range 12-15 reps per set. However by the last few reps I did feel the lactic acid kick in. When I, later in the session, increased the weight to 30 I found I was able to do 10 reps. I...

Should I be running 20 minutes or doing 10 minute workouts

I have about 12-13% body fat, and i was wondering if I should be running 20 minutes a day, or doing 3 minutes of jumprope, 20 second burpee, 20 second high knee, 20 second jumping jack, then 3 minutes of jumprope again. I want to get down to 7-8% body fat, but i dont know if i should run or do the...

Working out with a bad elbow, does anyone else's look like this? Is it normal? This is when I grab my desk from the underside and flex (I'm out of shape so I don't have much muscle yet). It seems like I can "see the tendon" along my elbow. If I do this with my other elbow, I don't see/feel it in nearly the same capacity. Is this normal? Are you...

Why are isometrics so unknown?

I'm not talking about holding a weight for a period of time. I'm talking about pushing/pulling against an immovable object. Like locking the barbell in with the safety pins and pressing against it as hard as you possibly can. I know I know... you say it's pointless because it only works that...

Brachialis uneven

So about 3 years ago I measured my biceps at 14.5" on right and 14" on left. I have emphasized hammer curls as a prime mover for most of my workouts. Typically however I usually include 3-4 exercises per bodypart so there would be some other exercises figured in there but hammers have always...

Sub for leg press and leg ext in Sheiko #37.

Title says it all. Currently running Sheiko #37, a variation given here, it contains 1 occurrence of leg extension, 5x8, and 1 occurrence of leg press, 4x6, and for separate reasons, I'm looking for viable subs. Seeing as they only occur once each in the 4 week cycle, and...

12% body fat, why six pack no abs showing?

I have just measured myself with a fat caliper and it says that I am at 12% body fat. I have heard that you should be able to at least see some abs at this point. I have been frustrated by this in the apst and as a result trained my abs quite thoroughly for a few weeks (thats what i thought) but i...

Should I increase intensity?

I am going to take creatine, people say unless we work out heavily creatine will go to waste. But currently I only work out three times a week. Do I add one more day to this, or do I simply increase intensity of these three workout days? I feel the latter is better, since 4 days a week would...

Does This Exercise Routine Look OK?

I am on about two of working out and 3 weeks of Paleo eating. I just don't know if I can do more or put in more rest days. I have no idea what I'm doing. I am on a exercise kick right now. Just want to make sure I'm doing what is effective for weight loss and getting my body in shape. I do official...

Will doing just squats for legs create a muscle imbalance?

I gave up dead lifting for a number of reasons, so now my only leg exercise is the squat (plus calves). Is this a problem? Or does it target the hamstring sufficiently?

OHP Increments

So I just did an easy set of 115x8 but couldn't even get out 2 reps of 135 (barely got the first) this normal or what could be going on? When I bench 8reps at the same intensity I can rise the weight by 20lbs and probably get a good 6 reps out of it.

Roundend Shoulders & Neck to forward problem

Hi, So I recently got back into working out and was watching some of scooby's videos and came to the conclusion that I got pretty bad case of rounded shoulders. After reading up some more and watching in the mirror a lot I also noticed my neck is leaning really forward, like it is almost about...

Stopwatch/timer app recommendations for a specific purpose

What is more important, lifting heavy, or fully simulating the muscle?

I've been listening to a lot of stuff by Kai Greene, he says the weight doesn't really matter, but fully contracting and stimulating the muscle is more important. He says it's all about the mind body connection, and purposefully tensing the muscle you want to grow. I've heard from others that to...

Trying to add more size and mass

Weights in Sauna

I am a former college athlete, but far from a weight expert. Quick summary, 3 years I destroyed my knees in basketball game. I ballooned from a fit 6'3 and 235lbs to a obese 340 pounds. I have worked my but off over the past year and am back to 225 pounds. I am now working out with weights again....
