Exclamation Where Do I Start?

Background: I'm currently 27 years old and 230lbs. Just under a year ago I had a heart attack due to my crap lifestyle and I've been slowly making changes, learned how to cook etc. I have a gym membership but I find myself going for an hour, get intimidated and don't come back for two weeks. How...

cable cross machine, overhead press: am I doing one wrong?

So I'm still at the stage where I'm making beginner gains. I'm used to feeling sore in my biceps, triceps, abs, etc. Recently I introduced cable cross machine (with both arms, while I'm bent forward) for my back and, on the same day, overhead press. Right now although it might just be...

Leg workout - just Squat?

My leg workout is basically just: Barbell Squats 5x5 Bulgarian Split Squats 3x5 and thats really it lol. I also do shoulders afterwards on that day and I deadlift (4x5) on back day. Can you make decent gains from just this (provided I go heavy ofc)?

High Bar Back Squat vs. Front Squat + RDL

If I were to swap high bar back squat out for front squat and RDL, would I be balanced out? What I'm really looking for is quad involvement, so I feel like front squat is what I should be doing.

Smile Is training to failure necessary for hypertrophy?

I always do the 3 sets 8-12 rep range on chest workouts, and every set I make sure to squeeze at the top position for about a second and focus on the eccentric for at least 3 seconds. After the first set I'll usually increase the load a bit more to make sure I'll get fewer reps for like 10. Then...

Deadlift question

I have back day and after that I have leg day. Is it ok to deadlift 2 days a row? On back day I do heavy 1-5 reps and leg day I do 8-12 reps. Also, I do romanian deadlift on leg day and conventional/sumo on back. Which would be better for back?

I can't do ankle circles with keeping my foot straight?

Anyone know any possible causes for this? Or do I need to just practice? My toes raise up and down with the motion of my ankle.

squat form check (ankle inversion)

so first off I apologize for the angle and quality, I hope its good enough to critique. Firstly I squat high bar with a CLOSE stance. Unless this is the only fix for my problem I would rather not change my squatting style for right now. I don't get any pain before during or after. I also warm up...

Question about reps

So basicly it seems like everyone says 8-12 reps for hypertrophy, anything below that is strength and anything over that is endurance. So how come many of the big bodybuilders do 15+ reps? Wouldnt they wanna stay in the 8-12 range? EDIT: Kali Muscle for an example emphasizes 15+ reps.

Muscle growth and boxing. Is it possible?

I'm currently doing Shortcut to Size by Jim Stoppani and I want to add some serious cardio to burn off the extra calories I don't expend from lifting. I just love boxing and I miss doing it in fear of it eating my muscle gains, which I've seen a lot of. If it is possible to be done, when should...

does anyone ONLY use resistance bands?

I bought resistance bands just for 1 exercise - the "pull apart" to strengthen my back, since you guys said that other than exercise bands if there wasn't a dedicated machine to do it I couldn't really simulate it at a gym. They're great! I've since bought several, increasing my resistance. ...

Pullup form question

I want to make sure if this is normal. When doing pullups in any grip (happens more in neutral) as I'm pulling my face/upper body tends to move away from the bar which makes me need to horizontal pull to get closer to the bar to finish the movement. I'm just annoyed at it not feeling like a smooth...

Can't squat deep

Should I do eccentric motion?

Hi, I read that slow eccentric ( a motion in the opposite direction, when pulling the barbel for bench press for example) training is better for hypertrophy than concentric motion (direct motion). But it also creates a lot more muscle fatigue. I can't do nearly as much reps when I move slowly in...

Are muscle gains proportional to strength gains?

Why am I not gaining weight?

A little background here, I am a 20 year old female. I've always been relatively small in stature. I'm really not trying to be a bodybuilder, but just gain weight so I can have sexy curves but also some muscle definition. A month ago I weighed 96. I was taking medicine that made me not want to...

Bigger Arms

I've worked out off and on since High School and one thing i have never been able to good results on is my arms. I normally do heavy weights to with less reps to try and build bulk but to no success. Maybe I'm not eating enough. Any suggestions

Hi I'm new to this forum and I'm posting this because I need some help. I'm 20 years and I'm on 5x5 stronglifts for the past 3 months. I've been getting stronger on all my lifts.

Newbie Q: Isometric arm exercises vs heavy lifting?

Hi. I'm a girl, and I know that women don't gain muscle like men do so there's no need to be afraid of lifting, but I'm going to be honest- I'm short. And I've been noticing that with my arms looking better, they also sort of appear bigger. These girls that you see that weight train usually have...
