I lold at asian ladies walking backwards on the treadmill.
Llama's right. Don't judge your work outs by your pump. Track your measurable gains like strength and size.
Yeah, they're my favorite exercise. The first time I learned proper form, I was surprised at how much I was able to lift with them. Nice ego boost.
I REALLY think you should get it checked out by a professional instead of looking for an answer here.
You've already taken time off and it hasn't helped and beyond that, there's no proper advice...
I was trying to indicate the correct starting position at the bottom of the lift. From what I've studied and practiced, the actual LIFT always starts with a higher hip position. Have a look at a some...
I'd have to agree with him. Mechanically speaking, you'd get a higher and more stable arch if you kept your feet flat and raised your hips. I've seen this form being used by powerlifters.
And I'm sure Pavel Tsatsouline doesn't know what he's talking about.
I'm not suggesting he performs the lift by pulling with his back alone. Keeping your shins straight ensures there's the correct...
You always ALWAYS try to keep your butt high. Deadlifting is primarily a back exercise. The lower your butt goes, the more your shins lean forward over the bar and you end up activating your quads...
Well that's the idea really. Deadlifts are good for your legs but the MAIN benefit in a correctly practiced deadlift is that it will BLAST your mid and lower back areas. It's primarily a back...
Depends on the intensity. As long as it's something low intensity like a walk or light cycling, you're good. Anything more intense for that duration isn't good for you.
Do you do any plyometric training?
Since you're training for athleticism, I'd really suggest you incorporate some vertical and horizontal jump training into the mix along with some sprints.
I'd suggest looking up the technique to load/unload your dumbbells. There's quite a chance of injury there if you don't do it right.
Scooby has a good video up on youtube about it.
You're overdoing it, plain and simple. Weights 6x a week in addition to 30-60 minutes of cardio everyday? And you do 3 sets of 4 exercises each session.
You might be able to keep it up for now...
No problem bud, good luck.
In addition to prioritizing pull movements, don't skimp on stretching your chest and shoulders. You're all tightened up.
Okay here's my suggestion:
Day 1: Chest / shoulders
Day 2: Rest
Day 3: Back / abs
Day 4: Rest
For a newbie? I'd say there's no good 5 day split. You've got to pick a routine you can stick to and most newbies choose a 5 or 6 day split that the take off with at 200% only to quit 2 months down...
Training the area you want to focus on twice a week is a great idea so don't doubt yourself on that.
I'd suggest adding your second chest day to your shoulder work out and pushing it to saturday...
What he said. See how many good reps you'll mark down with a busted shoulder.
Is your goal strength or hypertrophy?
Choose 3-5x5 for hypertrophy.
And 5-6x2 for strength (weight has to be near or at your 1RM)
1 set sounds like a bro joke.
