Tried to Impress my Wife Today

So I’m working out in the basement trying to get my scrawny ass some muscle and I’m about to start bench pressing. My wife comes down to check on me, so I throw a full plate on each end, which I have done in the past but not recently. I unrack it and lower it to until it barely touches my chest,...

Traps taking over for delt exercises?

Hey guys, I've noticed that I can feel my traps quite a bit during rear flys and shoulder press. Shoulder press probably needs the stabilization, but should I really feeling them on a rear delt isolation exercise?

Close grip pin press good for tricep hypertrophy?

I recently learned about the close grip pin press. Would these be good for triceps hypertrophy? My first instinct is to say "no" because of the momentary pause on the pins between reps. Probably great for building strength though.

Hang clean and press

What muscles does this excersize hit? My guess is side felt, front delt, traps as the 3 primary.

Angry Full Body Stretching Routines

My body is in tatters and i've finally gotten around to the point to admitting i've never really stretched or rolled out in the past 6-7 years of weight training (quite heavy at times) and i'm currently 21. Can anyone point me in a good direction or a stretching routine which focuses on all...

Question Can see V line but not abs?

Hi everyone. I have currently been working my abs out for the past 2 weeks now doing weighed abdominal exercises. I have def seen a diffrent in my abs and they show a little bit.

Single leg calf raise. Anyone do these?

I used to train with 250 for reps with standing barbell calf raises. I swapped to single leg calf raises and I’m only just hitting the same reps with a 30lb dumbbell. I guess it makes sense though since I’m 170 so with 250 each calf would be getting 210. With the 30 dumbbell each calf is getting...

Question Vacuum stomach

Hello. For the past few months I have been trying out the vacuum stomach move (mostly to to help strengthen my postpartum stomach back up). However, I am unsure if you continue to not breathe once you let all the air out? That’s what I have been doing (not breathing at all) and I wasn’t sure if...

Neck work

In regards to working the neck, are there any exercises which can hit all the muscle areas of it simultaneously? I ask because I don't wanna do like 4 different exercises just to hit the front, back, and sides. Is there like a neck compound? Weighted head circles or something?

Overhead shrug - proper breathing

I have seem a few online articles/videos describing how to do the overhead shrug exercise but none discuss breathing. For those that do the exercise, do you breath in or breath out while you shrug? I have tried both but not sure what feels right. For other exercises, it's usually pretty easy to...

Feel Bench Press in Lats More Than Chest

My lats seem to be dominating all my pushing movements (bench, push ups, etc.). When I squeeze and contract my pecs, my lats also contract (I can't flex my pecs while keeping my lats relaxed). I understand the lats are a supporting muscle when doing pushing movements, but what can I do to minimize...

Alternative to Bent Over Row

Hey, So been on F5 Intermediate for a few months, and I've decided that I've got to swap out Bent over Rows. They are killing my lower back. I realise this is most likely a form issue or something, but I'd rather swap it out than keep trying. It's the only exercise that really strains my lower...

Question Calisthenics VS Weightlifting.

I have posted this before but I can’t find it so imma ask again. Can you get just as big from calisthenics as you would from weight lifting? Doesn’t the body just know tension? So what would the difference be? But yes, can you get just as big from doing calisthenics as you would from...

Split squats working glutes/hamstrings as much as quads - any tips?

Slight injury from BB row - how best to aid recovery?

Not sure what went wrong but something twinged in quite a broad area over upper back. This was only 20 mins ago. Have near enough full mobility, just slightly sore all over, covering pretty much all movement that engages the area. Never injured this area before so should I be resting it or should I...
