Favorite Arm Workout?

I have arms day tomorrow and I was wondering what everybody's favorite workout is? I do a dumbbell only regiment, so I'm pretty limited. But I would say concentration curls are my favorite.

Squat form - breaking parallel/ alleviating buttwink

I'd like to get some pointers of my squat. If I could without my lower back rounding I would go ATG to get full ROM. I was getting some lower back pain after squatting so I widened my stance (it felt more comfortable) and the pain has now subsided. On the other hand I felt an 'impingement' pain on...

Shoulder Pop Flat Dumbell Press?

hello, I had a very uncomfortable benching experience today, I am hoping someone can give me some advice or pointers so I can continue to progress. I was doing my first set of dumbbell press after 3 sets of warm up and during the first set my shoulder had pop/jolt sensation. It felt as if a...

Shin burn during Ham Curl

Added in some leg extensions and ham curls. Liking the hamstring and glute activation but also getting some burning in the shins, pulling pretty hard. This normal and ok? Using pretty light weight, only a 35lb. plate and going slow and strict.

How can I do these types of sit-ups at home?

I never the area toned below my belly-button because I feel like I haven't found the right exercise. Leg lifts don't do anything for me. In Pain And Gain, Wahlberg does these hanging sit ups where he goes past center on the "down", and all the way up on the "up". What machines allow for these types...

Lightbulb Just learned that I can squat normally

Over the two years I've been squatting, I've always had a plank under my heels due to squat flexibility/balance issues. Bodyweight squats are only possible if my arms are in front of me, but I always fall back if I try to imitate the back squat hand placement. This has caused me to think that it's...

Moving up in weight when the next weight is a high % increase

Have searched online but can't find any good (or any) answers to this question. Is there any recommended method for moving up in weight when you're dealing with low weights on non-compound exercises. E.g. I was doing squats and when I completed 3 x 8 x 100 I could move to 3 x 8 x 105 and not...

Push pull form issue

During any pressing movements or pulls (rows etc) this happens. Is this a lack of muscle or a nerve issue or MMC? It’s frustrating and it is preventing me from getting stronger in both pressing and pulling. I also think it contributes to growing. A friend of mine that lifts told me I have zero...

Experiments with Bulgarian split squats

I understand unilateral work is to help with balance and stability muscles. Question will Bulgarian split squats help target the vastus lateralis more and will back squats focus the rectus femoris and vastus intermedius more? I seem to feel a shift in the soreness, but not sure if I'm...

X3 bar? Which resistance band set for work?

Hey all, quick question. I wanted to pack some resistance bands in my backpack for when I have a long slow day at work. I saw the X3 bar, looks interesting but very pricey. Honestly not looking for the fanciest, just something that will last me and give me a good workout with some...

Femur to torso length test

Wasn't sure of the best place to post this. Sit on the floor with your back straight and hug your legs tightly to your chest with your feet flat on the floor. Where are your knees in relation to your shoulders? I don't know what 'average' would be, but my knees are about 4 inches higher than...

Anyone swap every other workout heavy vs light/moderate?

I train for hypertrophy/aesthetics and typically stick to 8-10 reps for bigger movements and maybe 12-15 for smaller & isolation. I hit each muscle group 2x or 3x per week. Anyone who trains a muscle group at least twice per week consistently alter between a "heavy" day and a "light / moderate"...

How much strength loss is to be expected for my squat?

In my county, only open air gyms are allowed. The ones available are at least 20 min from my house and I can realistically only go there twice a week, maybe 3 x if I’m lucky. From what I’ve seen, there’s only one flat bench and one squat rack with a chit ton of ppl working out. For the sake of...

Beginning split-body maintenance program for limited health, mobility and equipment

Okay, so right off the bat, this will be a tiny bit of a read... I'm just trying to come up with a good split-body workout with dumbbells and body weight at home. I know it's a pretty far cry from a mass-gaining workout, but that's not really what I'm looking for, at least not at the moment. ...

Why does lower back hurt after hard physical work?

Hi, I have 3 questions... Im talking about the lower back pain after hard physical work (where a lot of lifting is involved). 1. What causes lower back pain? 2. Does hard physical work strengthens your back (or does it have an opposite affect and damages your back)? 3. How do you prevent lower...

Unhappy Can't overhead press and probably soon bench press - need guidance please

I'm wanting to know if doing bench presses or pushups will suffice for my main pushing exercise. I basically have floating bone spurs in my elbows and any overhead or tricep work sets me back weeks , so it's only horizontal pushing exercises that don't hurt, so until covid is over I can't get it...
