Pain in feet during calf raises?

During calf raises I don't tend to feel much till the 8th set and after (I do 12 reps in total) but on the third set after that 8th rep instead of feeling the awful pain in calves people say they feel I just feel painfully burning sensation in my foot, I don't know if it's from bone or muscle....

Trying to lift a PB deadlift

Hi guys, I know this is a stupid question. Just want to hear your thoughts. So I want to see what I can deadlift next week. At the moment I exercise with 90kg, 3x8. What do you guys think I should attempt. Ps. I do have a personal trainer, this is just for curiosity.

Which is a better leg exercise

kJpXnh8fEvQ Love this video here, but I'm wondering which of these two will transfer over to the barbell back squat more, the zercher squat, or the Barbell Hack Squat? I suppose the benefit of the zercher would be that it'd act as active recovery for the back and biceps, but would definitely be...

Advice for starting up again after long hiatus + unique health issues

First, the stats in my sig are grossly outdated (from 2-3 years ago) but my weight hasn’t really changed, so I guess I’ve spent the past three years mostly “de”-comping. For conservatism, I’d probably start with 60-70% of those numbers for my 1RM. That being said, should I start up again on a...

Need some expert advice

Full body routine works best for me and my schedule. I have 2 days off in between workouts; work 24 then 2 days off, and repeat. An upper lower routine does not work for my schedule. I’m interested in a full body mass routine, if possible. Can I do a full body routine with heavy weights/low reps...

Great Shape - Questions About Resting Heart Rate

Hope I put this in the correct forum section? I've been wondering why my resting heart rate is around 66-67? When it was in this range and higher, I realized I was over training. Cut back to 3 days, therefore I have a day to rest, and my heart rate went more like 62-63. However, the last couple of...

Bench Press vs Chest Press

I am currently doing three full body workouts every week. For chest, I am sticking to weighted dips and Incline DB press on two days. I am wondering if it would be better to isolate the chest more with chest press machine or stick to regular BB bench press on the third day. Any suggestions?

Myotatic Crunch by Tim Ferriss

Has anyone had any luck with this exercise? I've recently been reading through the 4 Hour Body (interesting book with it's fair share of pro's and con's) and in it Tim states that this exercise coupled with cat vomits will produce some serious abs. I realize that there are multiple paths to Rome...

My knees slip on the pad while using the assisted pull up machine, why is this?

Especially when wearing workout pants, my knees slip and slide on the pad when I am using the assisted pull up machine. I find that rolling up my pant legs above my knees helps a bit with traction, but is this a common issue when using this machine? On a side note, it feels like I am subconsciously...

Is it common to drop 9 reps between the first and last set of an exercise?

I find it amazing how my reps can drop so much from fatigue after just a few sets. As an example, in my last triceps workout on db lying extensions my first set was 15 reps and I stopped 1 or 2 reps before failure. Then the second set I could only get 9, then 7 and in the forth set only 6 reps,...
