Is my routine effective for getting bigger arms?

Been working out for a year and over that year I've learned the number one thing I want bigger are my arms as for some reason I just really like that over-developed look for them compared to the other muscle groups. I'm 5ft6-5ft7 (not entirely sure these days) and my goal is 17-18 inch arms, cold...

Question Deadlift problem

I have quite a big problem when deadlifting. I watched so many tutorials and read so many threads how to do a proper deadlift but i still cant do it properly. My butt always comes first and i cant stop my back rounding. It happens as soon as i go over 150 lbs on bar. I tried sumo deadlifting but...

Still use deloads when cutting?

Hey guys quick question. Have had a tough time finding info on this. I recently started a slow cut (250 Cal deficit) while doing 3x5 with some accessories. I'm going to keep pushing myself and lifting heavy but what I'm wondering is if deloads are to be used if I stall (fail to make 3x5 on an...

Comparing..... Dumbell Presses to Weighted Push Up's

I've seen a lot of post on this online, but never a post that really broke down my curiosity and gave a clear answer. Many will say why not bench? Now that I have shoulder cuff issues I'm staying away from bench. And likely I'm going to have to pick from bench or dips in the future, my choice is...

Feel the Burn - Becomes too Stimulating?

Whenever I feel the burn on various high rep exercises e.g. working the delts, I end up stopping the set too early because the sensation of the burn on my delt becomes overwhelming, way too stimulating, and almost orgasmic (similar feeling). Is it normal to feel that sensation when working out? ...

Big Legs, Concerningly Weak Squat: Can Anyone Relate?

Before I say anything else, it is true that I do often put squat on the back burner. Yes, I can't expect to be strong with a lift I don't often do. That said, it is somewhat concerning how weak I am at it. My legs are often sore simply from daily life (walking up and down my stairs and simply...

Can someone critique my deadlifts? In my first set of deadlifts, I had enough energy to get in at least one more rep but I decided not to push it cause I was doubtful of my form. In the other set, I legitimately was burnt out after 3 reps. ...

Weighted Chinup

Lately this has been in my general regime/program and it has been helping dramatically especially with general lats and bicep gains for strength and hypertrophy. If this isn't in your program, just check it out and see how you go. Most people cheat by kipping their legs up or not doing the full...

In your own expertise, what triceps exercise most helped you produce a huge longhead?

Lateral triceps head right now seems pretty decent, however the long head really gives that visualization of a huge arm. What exercise best builds it? Just to give a simple idea of my routine, it alternates every 2 weeks in my push regime with; Superset of Triceps pushdown with Bar +...

Room Temperature Make a Big Difference?

I workout in the backyard at night, but during the winter months the weight feels twice as heavy outdoors. Is there a scientific reason for this, and does the cold put more tension on the muscles being worked as it feels much harder to complete the same workout that I do at the gym? Is it...

Switching routine due to shoulder pain...... Still expect growth?

Well I hate to say this, but I've gotten to the day where I believe it's time where I feel like I'm going to have to make some big changes to my routine. The last 15 months I spent training mostly compound movements and improving my strength. I've trained mostly weighted dips, pull ups, bench,...
