    Hey Davis,

    A couple of pages back I asked about a dumbbell-only version of your program - then had some issues with moving, unpacking, and actually getting internet at my new place (Centurylink...

    You quit until it heals, then fix your form before doing any further serious # of pushups. If you're doing well with new form, then it starts breaking down, stop doing that until your next session.

    If you're reading anything that claims that going to or below parallel is bad for your knees, then what you're reading is idiotic.

    It's bad for the knees to not go below parallel. How far below...

    Sorry, but I'd ask the same somewhat rhetorical question - why are you doing circuits to begin with?
  • I think if you're doing serious calisthenics,...

    I think if you're doing serious calisthenics, which it sounds like you are, you're going to have a problem in that your muscles generally need 48 hours to rest to rebuild stronger.

    I personally...

    Davis is the guy who wrote the Fierce 5 program, so he'd be the best authority on the matter. :-)

    I don't know man, I used to feel sore always after working out, then I started doing more warmups, flexibility, etc and generally I just woke the muscle up and started using it better. Now I'm never...

    Probably not a huge difference. Try not to use the same muscles - so try to do all the lower body work in class, then the arms after school. Something like that.

    You never "need" a trainer (whereas you do need to do your own research on form and warmups if you don't have a trainer).

    A **good**, knowledgeable, and experienced personal trainer could be very...

    Curious what Davis thinks, particularly specifically how one does things like the barbell squat with dumbbells. The last time I research it, it sounded like most "dumbbell squat" techniques used...

    Me to, they require one more space or stack to store them in (if space is an issue), they're annoying to calculate, so it just ends up being an extra set of plates that I wouldn't use. They might...

    While I do not often recommend Starting Strength because it's more designed for sports than aesthetics, in this case it seems like it would be perfect. It's basically based on training high school...

    I'm not the other poster, but I wasn't even going to ask, because I assumed the answer was "no" as many of the exercises looked like they required a barbell and had no dumbbell alternative. Like the...

    Lol, it's funny because even the "dance workout!" videos don't actually have any dance moves built into them. They try really hard to pretend that sports exercise moves are dance moves when they...

    Yeah, my first thought was the the OP is not doing enough weight to begin with.

    However, All Pro's is a somewhat easier program than other programs - that's why I liked it, because lifting is a...

    Yeah, Sawhorses.

    They're better than nothing, but not as good as metal bars that are actually designed to have weight dropped on them.
