Questions about forearm muscles

Bent arm raises?

What do you guys think about dumbbell raises where you modify technique a slight bit, and bend at the elbow instead of using a straight arm? From what I understand, is it's a way to reduce the leverage, making the lift easier through shortened movement - but allowing for potentially more weight to...

Proper HIIT training

I want to do intervals from now on instead of distance running because I really hit a plateau and can do 10k pretty easily but don't want to spend that much time running or get stiff knees. I've heard differently about how I should do it. How far/long should I run? When I'm running fast does it...

Best style of exercising to catch one muscle up to another?

My left shoulder right now is woefully weaker than my right shoulder, and that's preventing me from getting that much better at stuff like bench press. I read somewhere that theres a type of workout that really helps your weaker muscle catch up to your stronger muscle as fast as possible. By...

Question Cardio while bulking

Poor form on db curl?

Do to injuries in the past I have limited range of motion in both arms. When I curl it's a mix between a curl and a hammer curl. Like exactly 50% of each exercise of that makes sense? I feel like my biceps are not progressing like they should and I would like to know if this is why? I can't do a...

Short guy. Deadlifting stance

Ive tried messing around with my stance a lot last few weeks and I want to have a narrow stance but my knee caves in even before my pull begins which isn't a good position to pull from if I'm correct. Do I just need to go wide? I'm 5'5 with short arms short legs

Should you be letting the bar touch your chest on incline bench?

For the last month and a half I haven't been letting the bar touch my chest because it felt awkward on my arms, plus I wanted to have a decent amount of weight on the bar for my size, not to look like a weakling. I was watching some tutorials on how to incline bench the proper way, and everyone...

Please help - exercise sequence

I do only compound work for both upper and lower body - for example, bench or dips followed by db shoulder press (and then rows etc.). A person whom I respect said it's better to ditch db shoulder press, since dips/bench are hardcore and will involve a lot of triceps (even though they're chest...

Red face 7.5% body fat no abs

Im 16 years old, I run 3 times a week for about 8 years and I do have 7.5% body fat. I don't have a sixpack but I got a chest by just running. I just don't get it why I have a nice chest and do not have a sixpack.
