Hip abductor / adductor

No one seems to do these exercises and I’m curious as to why. I remember speaking to a manager at one of my old gyms and he said to me these exercises are mainly for women, though that could have been because his gym didn’t have the abductor/adductor machine. I guess I’m just trying to weigh up...

Question Noob advise (strength and growth)

Hey, Cliché aside, joined the gym for the New Year and got a personal trainer to aid in motivation which has been a contributing factor as to why I have not stuck it out before. Bit of an overview- 6.3ft 294lb/133kg despite having what has been referred to as "stocky" I.E. Wide shoulders...

Unhappy Pushups - How Often?

Hey y’all, Got a question just out of curiosity. How often do y’all do push-ups? End of chest day? Multiple times a week? Never? Asking solely because I despise them. Leg day excites me more than doing 75 pushups at the end of my workout :(. Motivate me!

Pull-up beginner progression

I want to add weighted pull-ups/chins into my program this year as an alternative vertical pull to lat pulldowns. I just started from square one, bodyweight lifts and ..... well, it's a struggle. Right now, I'm maxing out around 6 reps unassisted with no weight. Today I went 4 sets, 6-5-5-4...

I swear every day for the last year (minus an week vacation, or over Christmas) some part of my body has been sore due to working out. The strange part is I haven't switched my workout up much over the last year. Lots of compound exercises with a barbell. Has anyone else just come to live with...

Smile Strength Benchpress alternatives

Hello, I mostly workout solo with a setup in my garage. I was wondering if anyone could give me some ideas on benchpress alternatives for strength training. I’m pretty careful when it comes to going too heavy without a spotter but I fear that I’m not getting enough strength for my chest muscles....

Bad posture

I`ve been training for 8 months now with alot of heavy compound lifts etc. But I always struggled with shoulder press especially. I arc my back like crazy to simply get the dumbells to move up.

Seated Floor DB Rows

I saw this variation of dumbbell rows in an article from the Washington Post. I thought it seemed like it could be effective, but when searching for dumbbell rows I couldn't find this floor version listed anywhere else. Just wanted to get opinions on whether this is could be a good variation to do.

Shoulder problems

For a while, I had pain and cracking sounds in my shoulders. I never experienced that before(I mean something that would last for weeks). I would guess that its due to poor chin-ups form, it took me a while to get it right as I never did that exercise. I would also feel rotator cuff pain when doing...
