Push Ups - basic

I started doing push ups again after a years break in April. My first attempt was 12...over three sets. Super weak. Currently, my max over five sets (with 2 mins between sets) is 36. WTF? I can hardly improve by one push up anymore. Due to circumstance diet isn't something I can alter that...

Realistic Natty Strength Numbers

Yo guys, I'm pretty much here to ask about personal experiences and/or your personal opinions. When we talk about Bench, Squat & Deadlift, clearly having more weight on you does make it easier to push more weight. I'm not saying that someone 250lbs is going to be stronger than someone 180lbs...

When to introduce knee wraps with squats?

Unhappy Jump rope vs running sweat

Jump rope is easy work for me compared to running. I can jump rope at 160 jump/ min for 30 min straight but never went beyond cause I do cardio daily However I barely break a sweat for the duration for example sitting in sauna compared to running I'll run for a mile jog and I'll start to sweat...

Can my arms grow just from compound exercises?

So I think i'll ditch all the curls and tricep pushdowns and stick with pull-ups, chin-ups, dips and close grip bench. Is that enough for a significant bis and tris growth?

Struggling with grip on heavy DL sets (icecream 5x5)

So incorrectly I have been using a mixed grip with straps from deadlfting around 80kg to 100kg. And I also use straps for my shrugs with the barbell. Therefore my grip is quite poor, last few sessions I decided to stop using straps for my deadlift as I found out that I shouldn't use them with mixed...

Overworking arms?

I go to the gym 3 times a week on Fierce 5. I throw in some forearm exercises and add a bit more bicep and tricep work than I should. The program calls for 2x10 tricep press downs for one day, and 2x10 bicep curls on the other. I do forearms 3 times a week, usually 2x20 finger curls with a barbell,...

Tricep Lying Cable Extension form?

This exercise never seems to do anything for me. It feels like I'm doing something wrong. One of the immediate issues is that as I extend my triceps and push upward, the cable tends to run over the top of my head. When I watched the video on here (I am doing Jim Stoppani's Shortcut to Shred),...

Will planks build a solid core?

Hey I was wondering if only doing planks will build a strong six pack. I know that you still have to get to a low body fat percentage for them to show. But do planks work all your core muscles, or do I still need to do crunches, leg raises etc.? Thanks in advance

Squat

Hi guys, Had quite a long lay off from the gym, ended up gaining about 30 pounds and losing quite a bit of strength and technique, especially when performing the squat. At the moment I'm unable to hit depth without a lot of rounding and it just doesn't feel as comfortable as it did before I...
