Good leg routine?

Any recommendations? Also, do leg press and squat machines have the same effect as doing regular squats with the barbell?

Is it okay to bail on squats or should I drpp the weights?

I tried to squat triplets and I pretty much bailed on the second rep.when I reached the ground, I kind of leaned forward and dropped the weight onto the safety pins. I heard this can mash up your neck. Should I drop down?

Grip on Romanian Deadlifts - should I get straps?

So any of you following my log (which I assume isn’t many ;-)) will know that I’ve been struggling with my grip lately. I grip my thumb underneath the bar (thumb between the fingers and the bar) and squeeze hard enough to make it hurt, but even so, I can generally hold it there for about 3 reps at...

Question Am I deadlifting or squatting off the floor?

Video: How's my form? I watched a bunch of instructional videos and felt that I wasn't doing it correctly. The video above is my attempt to do more of a hip hinge and less of a squat. Sorry I can't post links yet.

deadlift: upper or lower body?

I know this has been discussed on these boards ad nauseam, and of course in all lifting circles, but I still can't seem to find a clear opinion. Is the deadlift an upper or lower body workout? Not the trapbar deadlift, I know thats more like a squat. But the good old straight bar deadlift. Or sumo...

1rm and weight percentage help

Hi all, I'm a little confused as how the 1repmax calculators work, I know it's a general guideline but let I'm benching 200 for 3sets of 5 reps generally I'd be lifting in the 75%-85% range?

How to focus the lower traps instead of the lats in compund and isolation exercises?

Hello guys. I am trying to focus lower traps but lats do most of the work in compound exercises. I can feel scapula depression but lats overwork. For example pull up. The reason isolating the lower traps is my upper trapezius is genetically strong and tend to overwork.I need to strong lower...

Advice for keeping forearms verical for bench?

I have recently recorded myself bench pressing and I noticed that my elbows seem to go behind the bar on a few reps as I lower the weight. I have no issue keeping an arched back, retracted scapula, and an “arc” bar path as I press the weight. However, I have an issue keeping the forearms vertical...
