So I've been wanting more defined biceps and triceps in the gym. When I go in, I regularly use the double handled rope on the cable to do tricep push downs.

Zercher Squats

I started doing Zercher's and I feel that they work my entire body. My wrists hurt with a front squat, goblet squats drain my energy and back squats I cannot do because of a pinched neck nerve. Why do people feel the need to come up to me and correct me/give me advice that I need to clean the...

Hello, im an 18 year old female around 5'4 and the last time I weighed myself I was about 56kg but I, unfortunately, am not pleased with my body weight. I want to be able to reach around 60-65 kg because I'm way too slim. (In my eyes anyway) Ive gained weight and if I had to guess, ive gained...

Bench press - 2 related topics

1) I read somewhere that said not to train infraspinatus the day before bench press. It didn't say why, but I'm assuming the author thinks that would mean benching with a fatigued rotator cuff. 2) On a similar note, I notice sometimes that when I'm benching and really struggling with the reps I...

Assisted pullups using cables

Odd idea, but if you don't have access to an assisted pullup machine but you do have a lat cable setup available..

Maybe a dumb question.. I'm new to working out, so just started a month ago. Every workout I do, I get from YouTube. I always look up proper form before doing them. The question is. I feel stronger, sore, and I been feeling great. I took a week off due for my kids.
