Hello, first post on this forum so please don’t hate me if I mess this up. Tried to post to Post reddit but it wouldn’t post for some reason.

Squat Form Check

I have recorded my squats from the side several times for my own review. On Monday I recorded from the rear for the first time and thought I would share for any input. I see my knees flare in a little bit which I don't think is terrible but this also wasn't a real heavy set. This was the 3rd set...

Volume vs Intensity

I am a simple person, I don't follow complex training schemes, I go in, I pick up the heaviest weight I can handle for about 10 reps, I rep to failure, rinse and repeat. I love handling heavy weights, I like to challenge myself, I like to feel like I left everything I had on the gym floor. Of...

41 year old, male. I noticed that I feel tired after weightlifting sessions and don't recover well. When I was 17 (in Olympic weightlifting sport) I had to interrupt my training for 2 weeks several times due to workload and when I came back I was lifting more, was stronger and in perfect form. ...

Exclamation Squeeze your butt; lift more weight

Read that in Men's Health. Tried yesterday on one legged squats and then regular squats. And I could squat about 20 lbs. more on each rep. For the first time in my life I felt the pump in my glutes. It's awesome. But my ass has been soar all day. Made me wonder; is this how Elton John...

Smile weight gain after leg day

Each morning I record my weight as part of my exercise and food log. On the two days following leg day I gain one or two lbs. I assume this is inflammation/water weight. Does anyone else have this happen?
