    For your strength goal, do the 5x5 routine. The higher rep sets inherent to All Pros shift the focus more towards bodybuilding than strength training. But life is long enough for you to try both...

    The goal of the program is to increase your strength on the basic/important lifts. When you add in all of those other exercises, you distort the focus and sabotage your work towards the strength goal.

    Judging by your deadlift, I think you could drop 70 pounds from your squat and squat lower.

    As for your questions, the answers depend on what you want to get out of your training. The routine you...

    One of the main problems with this type of arrangement is that you end up training six consecutive days. It may be best to insert rest days as needed and avoid sticking strictly to thinking about...

    Dumbbells are great until you try deadlifting and squatting with them. Hopefully you can find a gym with barbells. If not, then it may make sense to find a different routine that uses the same...

    Steady progress on a program featuring bench press, bentover row, chinups, overhead press, curls, and dips (or any triceps-centric exercise) will train your arms. Then it's up to your diet to ensure...

    I have tried many, but I only like two brands of compression shorts:
    1. Nike Pro - The waistband eventually goes, but it takes years for that to happen. Excellent overall comfort/performance.

    I would sell the 50 pound PowerBlocks and buy a new PowerBlock U125 (or U90 if 90 pounds is enough for your needs) set. The only thing that bothers me about that set is that the 100-125 increments...

    I own that same BodySoid bench. It is certainly sturdy (at least at my moderate weights) and is a comfortable 18.5 inches from the ground. It folds up, but it may not go quite as flat as you require....

    I suggest finding a $300 bench that is well reviewed and buying it used. I think you may have to sacrifice too much in terms of build quality, load capacity, and durability when buying $150 new.

    If 5-10 rep sets are being discouraged then I don't know why 20 rep sets would be any better. The more reps you do, the more cardiovascular in nature your training will be. So your cardiologist's...
