    Try switching it up with DB squats. You don't lean forward when you're holding the DBs in your hands versus the BB pushing down on your back.

    I automatically push up with the heels when I squat with dumbbells, so the form is always correct. With BBs I have to make an effort to not push up with the knees, and also try to keep the upper body...

    Favorite: bench press and squats
    Least favorite: doing presses and extensions standing up because my core is weak. Still making myself do it tho.

    You can also do dumbbell squats (the ones at my gym go up to 120 lb).

    Lower yourself past 90 degrees and you'll really feel it.

    Nothing beats squats for the glutes, but make sure you're pushing up with your heels and not your toes. That way the focus is on your hams/glutes instead of your knees.

    What's the big deal? Keep at it for another week or two and you'll be back to the previous levels.

    1. Cut the number of sets down to 3 and up your weights.
    2. Replace one of the concentration curls and the 7-set curls with hammer curls to work the bradioradialis
    3. Get rid of the push-ups

    Does your gym not have any higher bars? You look like you have to curve your body to avoid touching the ground with your feet.

    The best shoulder exercise for me is upright rows, but make sure it's wide grip or using an e-z-bar or you'll screw up your rotator cuffs.

    Have you tried using straps or gloves?

    I've had the same prob as you. If I didn't have straps during DLs the weights would keep sliding out of my hands and I can't get past 5-6 reps.

    What's the point of this? Clearly his arms can support his weight if he can do 8 PUs from a dead hang.

    OP - just keep doing what you're doing. It'll improve over time.

    Use a wider grip. Make sure you move with control (both ways) and hold for a second at the bottom. If you do this and use a challenging weight, it's pretty impossible not to feel it in the lats.

    Straight or bent doesn't matter, but if you're going with straight, make sure you do it with control and not in a swinging motion.

    Waste of time as opposed to what? Of course it's better than doing nothing at all.

    For the weighted squats just use a backpack filled with bags of sand/water bottles/textbooks, etc.

    Shoulders-arms-chest back to back doesn't sound like a smart idea. There's pretty much zero recovery. No recovery = no growth/improvement.
