Vertical leg press Maybe it’s the way the machine is made, but this machine really pulls on my hip flexors pretty hard. Any tips to eliminate that fatigued feeling I get in my lower back? I keep my core as tight as possible, maintain that neutral arch in my back, but the way the...

Are Bro Splits Really As Bad As People Claim?

Over the past few years I've heard a lot about the importance of training frequency i.e. training each muscle twice per week, the benefits of minimalist training (power building), etc, but I still see a lot of 4-5 day split routines floating around. My question is, can naturals benefit from a...

Question Has anyone fixed their Anterior Pelvic Tilt (APT) without doing abdominal workouts?

I have flat feet which has contributed to APT. I suffer from hip and lower back pain because of it. I had surgery on the first foot and will soon have surgery on the second. Once I am fully recovered from my surgery, I will be working out my glutes, hip flexors and hamstrings. Many sites say...

Recovery and DOMS, have you felt this way?

This is mostly likely a personal pet-peeve but maybe there is some reasoning to it. After I do a heavy chest workout, I usually feel sore the next day, that concentrated, stone-like soreness coming from DOMS we all appreciate. Then after chest day I sometimes do a shoulder workout the next day. And...

The sitrep is I can chinup 90lbs for 2.75 reps and my strength has been there for about three months now. I put off rowing once a week for about 5 months 'coz I workout in an 8ftx12ft shed.

Suicide grip & Figure 8 straps

Guys, just wanted to share some info which maybe useful to many lifters and that I've figured out through some experimentation today. Lots of people know about advantages of suicide/thumbless grip on bench press - mainly less strain on shoulders and better ability to involve pecs. However, many...

Does strength training make it harder to get bulkier/tear muscles/ripped?

I might be confused on this, but doing 1-3 rep sets of my max or close to it vs doing 12-15 reps and increasing my weight as 12-15 becomes too easy. From what i think i remember reading anything over 15 is basically cardio and 8-15 is bulking 1-5 is strength. Can you get bulky/ripped from...
