Knee discomfort after stretching calves

I'm not exactly sure why after stretching my calves, which were very tight and now extremely relaxed, led me to having odd discomfort of my right knee. I could deadlift fine today, but went to do some squats and felt discomfort so didn't even bother squatting. I really hope knee is 100% better...

Circuit Training or Machine Cardio?

Can I do 2 30 minute circuits instead of machine cardio? Hey I'm a big guy like 270lbs with muscules and a so so fat percentage. I look normalish but my gut undermines my huge arms. I presently scare and impress my friends when I go legs only on the eliptical. And in the past even though...

Straps=No traps?

Are lifting straps more beneficial than they are useless? I have been trying to build mass/strength and one lift I’m struggling with right now is deadlifts. I’ve gone from 185-325lbs in deadlift. I’ve never used straps before and always used double overhand grip until I reached around 300lbs...

What is up with OHP?

So I was stuck pressing 110lbs for a couple of weeks, and finally broke through to 115, then got stuck at that for a couple more weeks. My rep ranges varied from 6-10 across 4 sets (following Viking's ULPPL), and I just kept grinding through because every day was unpredictable with this lift. ...

Bench press -- feeling only one side

I'm sure this has been asked numerous times before, but searching bodybuilding forums is like searching for hair in a haystack. So yeah, on the bench press machine I only feel the left side of my chest being worked. My first thought is that the left side is weaker than the right, but I can feel...

Ammonia smell after exercise

I have had a problem with smelling like ammonia when I exercise. It is usually not until I get really warm that this happens. I've read conflicting info on this, saying I don't eat enough (I do) or that I have too much protein or not enough protein. No matter what I do to my eating habits, it still...

Electrical muscle stimulation

Does anyone do it? I noticed in one of kanes videos that he was using them for his quads. If he does then it MUST be good right?
