So I've never really been an actual weight lifter and I'm finally getting into it. I've always done martial arts and body weight exercises so I don't have a clue what I'm actually doing.

Back Squat Form Check + Lower Right Back Pain

Hi everyone! I'm new to this forum, so I'm going to describe the issue as clearly as possible. I have had some back issues in the past due to an anterior pelvic tilt (it looks like I'm sticking my butt out really far even when I stand due to poor posture, so it caused lots of lower back pain)....

Question Pull-up alternatives/Intermediaries

So I just tried to do some pull-ups for the first time at the gym today. I couldn't do one, I simply don't have the upper body strength to do it. The pull-ups exercise said beginners can use a "Chin-assist machine" or a gym partner to hold legs to assist in completing them. I lack both...

Biceps: Light or Heavy?

Hi everyone. For the longest time my biceps have been a weak point. As pathetic as this may sound I've only been able to curl up to 20/25lbs, it's the only weight I can control without swinging.
