Hi, so I’m 23 and I started lifting just under 6 months ago now and am starting to become a little discouraged.

Rounding lower back when sitting.

Hello!:) As the pictures show my lower back easily gets rounded if i sit down or bend over... Could this be a sign of a hernieted or slipped disk? If not, is there any streatches i can perform to improve my rounding back?

Talking Realistic goal weight: 5'5 and bulking?

So I made a post a few weeks ago and, good news (lol), I'm still bulking. I'm gaining around 0.25 pound a week at the moment. More or less. My weight is usually around 120 pounds. I told my BF I wanted to get to 130 pounds before even thinking about cutting but he thinks it may not be enough. If...

Those successfully cutting fat... how did you do it?

Hi. So I've had a goal for over a year now of cutting fat and gaining muscle. I've gained some muscle, but haven't gotten the cutting fat part down. I exercise religiously... 3x week strength training, never missed. I need to reintroduce HIIT 2x a week, too. Anyway... exercise isn't my problem....
