Are the big 3 necessary for optimal gains?

While one can certainly achieve hypertrophy with many different movements, sometimes fans of the big 3 barbell lifts will argue that these lifts are special compared to other movements (e.g. the back squat is inherently superior for hypertrophy compared to single leg training) Curious to see...

Injury risk from heavy pull-ups?

I love pull-ups and been doing them for probably 20+ years. I do pull-ups twice per week. Always medium width pronated grip. One day I go for 3x10 (currently with 1 plate) and one day I go heavy 3x3 (almost at 2 plates) with some back-off sets. My other back work is usually weighted inverted...

Question about chest press on Vertical Chest Machine please?

I've had several injuries and surgeries over the last 10 years of my life spread out over my entire body, and unfortunately my body isn't done with its affinity for surgeries yet either. I won't go into the list, but it's fairly lengthy. My days of free weights are done basically. My question is:...

When to know you've sufficiently exhausted a bicep?

Biceps seem to be one of those bottomless pit muscles that always seem to be ready for another set of 10 reps to failure after a few minutes. I've only been back into lifting since July and I have had bicep growth, but seemingly not in proportion to the rest. But when I do biceps, I usually go...

6’1 - 215 Pounds: Should I Cut? Bulk?

I’m 22 - Male I’m somewhat new to working out. I played D2 sports about 3 years ago so we had a trainer that put us through different lifts and nutrition… at that time I was about 175-180 and I looked fit. Anyways, it’s been a while since I’ve worked out and I haven’t focused on any sort of...

Importance of horizontal pull vs vertical pull

I sometimes see people here say rowing movements are more important than vertical pulling movements, and that one should dedicate more time to the former than the latter. Is this just with regards to shoulder health or are there other factors involved?

What's going on with my leg? (Can't Squat!)

Hi guys, When I bend my leg, there's this sort of pop that goes on on the outside of the knee - I think it's my IT band? This happens especially during squatting. It never used to happen, but I took a very long hiatus since covid started, and trying to get back into training my legs. Any idea...

Deadlift help!

Ok, I've worked out off and on through the years. Never incorporated deadlifting before. Just one reason was I was always afraid too because of a bad lower back for years. Plus self conscious in the gyms. I now workout in my garage gym that I built. I've also bought a Westside reverse hyper. My...

My left triceps is significantly weaker than my right

I have been trying to close the gap for a year now. The disparity is huge. For example, I can do 22.5 lb. with the left arm on the Precor free weight shoulder press, but 40 lb. on the right. And when I sit sideways each way on the free weight chest press, I can do 7.5 lb. on the left arm, but 17.5...

Do long rest periods affect my hypertrophy

I'm a uni student and in general have a **** tonne of time, so I often take 1 to 3 minute rest periods for my lifts, is this going to affect my gains? Since some people are telling me to do only 90 seconds for my bicep curls, but I feel like I'll be too tired to progress if I do them that fast....

Left side catch up

Hi guys, took my 6 weekly measurements Sunday and for the 4th time my left upper arm is lagging behind the right - difference of 1.5cm but noticeable. I'm thinking of adding a couple sets of Dumbell alternating curls at the end of my upper sessions to help isolate and focus on the left? Just not...

I'm convinced dumbbell rows hurt my spine

The nerves in my spine have been hurting for about a week now. Every time I do dumbbell rows, my back always starts to hurt and I can't even do cardio without pain. This happens every time. Maybe I am not doing it correctly, but at this point, I don't think this exercise is worth it anymore....

Legs with a lower back injury

Super bummed, I tweaked my lower back for the first time in years. I accidentally maxed out on deadlifts two weeks ago, and the nail in the coffin was deciding to incline press with with my feet up... sent me straight into flexion. SMH @ myself. Anyway, I’m going to get myself set up with a...

I think I was overtraining my legs with cardio.

I noticed a pain above my knees, like the connective tissue or tendons where getting strained. I thought that was a weakness I'd have to strengthen. So I did my exercises where I could. I've been going to the gym across the street, 30 minutes here, 30 there, 2-4x a day most days getting my...

When does squating require a belt?

At what weight do you start needing to wear a belt to squat? Same weights as body weight? More? When I was 150 and squating 135 pounds, I did not feel the need for a belt. Using a belt may let you grow more impressive legs, but are they functional if they need a belt to exert maximum force?...

Anyone ever incorporate multiple pauses in any lift?

I haven't experimented with this but am curious if anyone else has. IE, pause at the bottom of a squat and then halfway up, or 1" off the ground with the deadlift and again around the knees, etc. I feel this may be useful for people who are much stronger at lockout than at the beginning of the...

How to spare my back when skating?

ATM, the issue applies to inline skating, but in a few months I'll be cross-country skate skiing, and there's a small possibility I'll use "real" skates. So my inline skating technique isn't that bad, I've noticed little muscle use difference between when I focus on keeping it right and my normal...
