    This past Saturday I saw someone who displayed more characteristics of idiocy than one person should be allowed to by law.

    Depends on what equipment you have. If you have dumbbells, you can find a dumbbell routine to get on that will probably work better for you than any of these. If you are absolutely determined that...

    Unless you get them from a friend, family member, etc. who no longer wants them. Or you have no qualms about trying to download them. The latter being an illegal act, obviously.

    Depends on how many days per week you are doing this. You're young, so recovery might be easier for you.

    Personally, I like to keep separation between weights and cardio. My week is:

    Form was fine. Your knees looked like they wanted to cave in, but you fought it. Good on ya. You did good at keeping your chest up and preventing it from turning into a good morning. Depth was good....

    He is technically accurate, but it all depends on context. If you tell a powerlifter you squatted 300, when it was actually 297, then you didn't. If you tell your average gym rat you did 300 when it...

    As noted above, you have the weight too far forward. Hard telling from that angle, but I would suggest widening your stance a touch. When you start the lift, focus on pushing your butt back before...
