Any exercises to help fix forward head posture/general bad posture?

I suffered a concussion last summer and since then i've had trouble fixing my forward head posture. I think it may be because I spent a lot of time resting at home after my head injury, and the muscles on the neck just got super weak. I've been aware of it and try to fix my posture all day, but...

Very weak bench for level of development?

Hey guys, My chest has always been my best muscle group. I had some mass there even when I was a skinny twig (well, some of you would still consider me that :D) and it would grow even when I didn't focus on it at all (for example, tricep dips as only push exercise). My triceps are fine and my...

Substitute Kettlebell for Dumbbell? Which exercises?

There’s overlap between KBs and DBs for some things. Like doing lateral raises with a 20# KB is probably the same as a 20# DB. Shrugs must be the same I’d bet.
