Question Plyometrics

What do you guys think about plyometrics? Can they be used to build muscle or are they a cardio workout mainly? Thanks

Question Squats

Hey guys, I know squats are massively important to include in your routine and to develop leg size. But I was just wondering why so many people seem to say it’s a full body exercise and develops the upper body also? Why is this?

Deadlifts, do they work quads?

For conventional deadlifts, are your quads involved at all? (During my workout I usually stand on a 3" wooden block when doing deadlifts, does this activate the quads to a greater degree during the movement?) thanks

Standing Shoulder Press Question

I've noticed that when I contract my legs while I do my standing shoulder/military presses, it feels better. It feels like I can generate more power than when I keep a soft bend in my knees. Perhaps this is due to the principle of irradiation (i.e. total body tension)? I just wanted to get...

Exercises to increase grip strength

I've got ridiculously small hands and my grip strength sucks. My training's going well, I've been steadily increasing the weight and the muscles I'm trying to hit can definitely handle it but my grip is where I start struggling especially on upright rows and deadlifts.

How Deep do you Squat?

I just want personal opinions here. I actually do ranges. When I do them, I start at 135lbs and work my way up to 405lbs, then go back down. Pyramid. Up until 315, I do full range, ass to the grass. from 315-405 I go parallel. How about you?

Chest lacking

So I train chest 2x a week and the lifts I use for it are Bench 3x5, Incline Bench 3x5 and Cable Flyes 3x10-15. However my chest is still lacking and doesn’t seem to grow that much. My diet is in tact and I eat in a surplus so that isn’t the issue. Any help would be appreciated.

How should I work-out?

Every time I workout I choose 3 workouts and cycle through them, for example, dumbell curls to tricep extensions to overhead presses, and then repeat. Should I keep doing?

Do beginners need direct arm work?

Do beginners really need direct bicep and tricep work or do compounds only matter at this point. I am training all heads of my deltoid rather than just doing OHP, just wanted to know if I need to do the same with arms as well as benching and rowing.
