Is there a such thing as underhand deadlifts?

Title says it all. Wondering if these are a thing at all, and if there would be any benefits to using a supinated grip in a deadlift. Using low weight to be on safe side and not chance a tear, could it be used as a potential compound to add to bicep work?

Z-press/ OHP alternative

What’s up guys? Looking for your thoughts on using the z-press as my main movement on shoulder day, with lighter seated Db OHP as my secondary lift. I was using it as my main lift, but My issue is that I have spinlock dumbbells and once I hit 90lbs and up, I have trouble getting them into position....

Anyone (with a decent chest) swear by DB chest fly?

The internet seems mostly in agreement that DB flys are not good because 1) shoulder injury risk 2) strength curve #1 should be manageable if you keep some bend in the elbow and use controlled form for higher reps #2 I get, but even the bench press itself has a strength curve that is hardest...

Question Are there lifts where having wide shoulders is an advantage?

In general are there exercises that are better suited to some people due to the structure of their body?

Why some people look bigger but are the same strength as me?

I’ve been noticing for a while that a lot of the guys in the gym (especially guys on the bigger side), don’t lift that much more than me, yet they’re far bigger. I’m 5’11”, 178lbs at 12-13% bf. These guys weigh a lot more at a similar height but with 18inch arms. The thing is, when I pay...

Does touch and go bench = bouncing the bar?

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fq3q6UHIfQE When I do the bench press, I try to keep my feet planted to the ground and keep my upper back tight. I was testing out my maxes and I could do 145 lbs for a double. I noticed that my reps go by really quick. Are these necessarily "bouncing the bar" or...

Coming off sensitive injury, will this be enough?

Hey guys so I’m having pelvic floor issues and my therapist gave me the go ahead to workout with lighter weight and I’m just wondering how effective doing slow negative reps with a lighter weight can be? It’s been demoralizing not working out for months after doing really good. I want to ease...

Bicep soreness with pull ups... HELP!

I have never been a fan of pull ups and have always avoided them, although I have done rows/lat pulldowns/etc. About 2 months ago I decided to try incorporating pull ups into my routine, using assisted pull ups for 3x4-6. EVERYTIME I do pull ups, the first muscle to get sore is my bicep. I have...
