    Most weight lifting exercises, particularly rows, chins and deadlifts will improve your forearms over time provided that you eat enough to allow growth.

    As mentioned, there is lots you can do with a barbell. A power cage brings you the ability to do heavy back squats (which most people who get serious will want to do), also it acts as a rack for safe...

    I would not be happy with such a setup.

    Resistance is resistance but these kind of things can cause problems with lousy force curves and bar paths that don't suit your joints.

    Hiding from the scale is not the answer. Weigh yourself first thing in the morning every day and look for the long term trend, learn to ignore the ups and downs of water weight. You cannot gain or...

    When you create your own routine, the progression scheme is very individual to you - so only trying it is really going to show if it will work or not. However, I do like the idea of dropping back in...

    You have picked up a strain. Sometimes it doesn't feel that bad at the time but probably stiffens up later that day or maybe the next day.

    Take a week off. Next time, start at a lower weight and...

    Parallel is fine. It's a good idea to work on flexibility so you can safely go deeper but many people never go below parallel anyway. This would just be so that you have a better margin of error.

    I wouldn't let it prevent you from starting. Go as deep as you can without it affecting your postural safety. Sometimes you have to force your body to adapt but of course there is a balance to be...

    My training is specific to my goals which are:
    - improve strength (measured using something like an 8RM) in my 5 core lifts
    - do this without special attention paid to neural efficiency - i.e. do...

    Are you weighing yourself? If you are not losing weight, you are probably not losing fat. If that's the case, you need to reduce your calorie intake. If you don't know what your calorie intake is...

    I have lost muscle before due to food poisoning. In one week I lost 10% off my main lifts. It took 3 months to get back to where I was originally. It isn't worth it - preserve muscle mass at all...

    All Pros says you can do abs and cardio on offday.

    But really its a waste of time, there is plenty of ab activation in most of the main compound lifts. People wrongly believe that endless crunches...

    Hormones have multiple functions in the body. For example, growth hormone rises during fasting when clearly it's not possible to grow new tissue. Testosterone rises during exercise but you won't be...

    Weight loss happens when you consume fewer calories than you burn. If you aren't counting your calorie intake, you aren't in control of your diet.

    OK but be prepared to adjust it upwards if you don't gain around 2-3lbs a month on average.

    You don't need to hit exact macro ratios. Just set minimums for your protein and fat - and then choose...

    Some say a 2:1 ratio for pulling to pushing.

    I'm not sure that's necessary since I don't need that much to remain in good health (I have had shoulder problems in the past).
