    If you haven't already, I'd join a gym.

    Get started with a whole body program you do three of four times a week. In the first few weeks, I'd stick to the resistance machines to let you body adapt...

    In my early 20s, I didn't have any beard. It developed very steadily in my 20s and even into my 30s. I still don't have very full beard growth, but at least that means I can get away with shaving...

    I'd say you need patience. This stuff takes time. Sometimes it may seem like you're making no progress, although in fact you still are.

    I only started training in my late thirties, so I don't know what I might have been capable of in my early twenties - and maybe that's a good thing.

    In general, it's best to focus on the things we...

    Personally, I wouldn't want to superset squats with anything - they're quite enough by themselves!

    As doughnut91 said, opposing supersets are probably best kept for isolation exercises -...

    I think hanging leg raises are great - both for hip flexors and rectus abdomis. If they're too hard for you, I'd recommend starting with hanging knee raises, and building up to leg raises from there....

    I don't do much to isolate abs - I think I hit them enough with squats, military presses, triceps pushdowns etc. I do hanging leg lifts quite often though, although again that's for hip flexors as...

    I'd say if your fitness test is for sit-ups, then you need to train doing sit-ups.

    Maybe you've been neglecting your hip flexors? To make them easier, you could do situps with your feet tucked...

    Two weeks isn't a lot of time - it might be premature to say you're plateauing. I'd give it a bit longer before making any drastic changes.
