Can't progress on OHP

Hi guys I'm following Fierce 5 novice program... I seem to be progressing on most of my lifts apart from the overhead press? I seem to have hit a wall at 42.5kg. Everytime I get to this point I fail, I lower the weight 15% but once once I've worked back up to this weight again I still can't...

Close grip bench stronger than regular grip?

I recently discovered that I can lift slightly more weight with my close grip bench press than with my regular grip bench press (when comparing my 5 rep performance and RPEs). For the close grip bench, my hands are shoulder width apart. For the regular grip, I have my pinkies on the markings...

Overhand chin-ups ?

Hey, i have a question. Why is nobody doing overhand chin ups ? I mean, when people do shoulder-width chin-up, where elbows go straight to the back, not to the sides like with classic pull-up, they always have underhand grip. I never saw anyone doing chin-ups (elbows go to the back, not to the...

Target different points of a muscle?

I have a PT at my gym that is shredded to the bone and he claims there are exercises/variations to target different points of a muscle, most commonly showing exercises which makes the line between muscle separation more noticeable e.g.separation between shoulder and triceps/biceps. Is this true?

How did you deal with wrist injury from benchpress?

Hello all. I am making a post which basically constitutes as asking for medical advice. I know I should go to a doctor with this, and I have, but circumstances are not allowing me to get the help I seek for over half a year already. I have reached the desperate point where I am willing to look...

Locking out at the top for a second after each rep on chest/delt presses, yay or nay?

I sort of "click" my elbows at the top of each rep to keep the motion going for bench/shoulder pressing for rep work for bench/shoulder press, 1-5 rep sets I will lock out for a second at the top after each rep. Locking out for a second at the top after each rep for 6+reps work, my triceps tend to...

Push up exercise

The push-up may just be the perfect exercise that builds both upper-body and core strength. It has many modifications so beginners can start with easier versions and work up to the standard push-up, while you can find a challenging variation if you are advanced. You can do the push-up as part of a...

Suggest me one ab exercise

So I don't spend much time on ab work as it bores me. Recommend me one ab exercise to do short and sweet that I can progress with. Just going to add a set or 2 after each workout. Something short and intense

Cardio on Rest Days and Weighted Dip Question

Hey guys so first off, I follow a powerbuilding routine that runs off a 8 day cycle, 2 days on, 1 day off. I haven't been doing any cardio at all but I want to start. Should I do cardio on my lifting days and just completely rest on my off days, or should I lift and do 30-60 minutes cardio on my...

Tibialis anterior weight?

I would like some guidance on percentage weight to use for tibialis anterior exercise. I think directly lifting a weight with my toes is best but, due to arthritis in 1 toe, I prefer standing on heels on a block of wood and raising my toes while holding a barbell. I currently use almost the same...

Deadlift hip drop?

Why is it that I see guys drop their hips a moment before a heavy pull? For me that takes the load entirely off my hamstrings and makes me want to squat. I just try to hinge back as far as I can, slightly upward, and my hips still tend to shoot up by a couple of inches before the first pull of the...

Question about body transformation on Youtube

Since I've seen two threads with Cavaliere's full workout here, I've remembered about his protege, Jesse. That very skinny guy with a very weird rapey look, zero sense of humor and yet tons of jokes, and facial hair that looks like Charles Manson and some no name ****phile had a baby. He put some...

Planks question

I normally do planks with my hands facing forward instead of folded. Does doing them with folded hands make it easier or work out different muscles? Is one way recommended more than another? Thanks.

Stance width during certain arm exercises

Low back pain

When I do squats I get a strong burn in my low back. It feels like it's going across the top edge of my pelvis on the right side. It goes away between sets. Any exercise or warm up to fix this? What muscle would that be?

Has my deadlift form improved or do I still need to improve it?

I've been practicing romanian deadlifts and it has taught me to move my hips back. So the question is do I still need to improve my conventional deadlift? The reason I'm posting this is because I haven't had any good luck finding any good coaches to coach me, either they were too costly or they...
