Exclamation standing overhead press on smith machine? are you suppose to extend arms all the way

When trying a standing overhead press on a smith machine, starting with the bar behind your head, on your neck, if I extend it overhead I can't do it all the way because I hit the top of the smith machine track (I'm 5'10"). Am I doing something wrong? Is this not one of the exercises the smith...

Squats vs Seated Leg Press

What are the benefits of each comparing to one another? The other day all the squat racks were used so I went to the seated leg press. Got the same mobility that I would on the squats, but my quads were killing me on the leg press whereas it doesn't really do much on squats. Do they target the same...

Keeping track of your exercises

I got to ask, when you are reporting your dumbbell weight, (in this case dumbbell bench press), do you put the weight down just for the one dumbbell (because its a dumbbell, its separate, one arm, 45 lbs) or do you combine the 2, 45 + 45 = 90 lbs total. I feel like I am cheating, making it seem...

Exercises to Develop Speed...

I am wondering what exercises can you do to develop speed in your arm, wrist, and finger movements? When I say speed I mean how quickly you can move them with control.

Working out abs/core through big lifts?

What is a good number for overhead pressing?

I am doing 135lbs (61kg) overhead presses, but I have no way of knowing where that number stands. I know that OHP is supposed to be our weakest lifts comparatively, but in both gyms I go to, nobody is doing anything over like 90, so I have no way of knowing where my OHP stands. I'm not a...

Deadlifts murder my lower back... temporarily

So I've gone through plenty of posts and articles on DLs and lower back pain, but none seem to address this sort of pain. In my program I do 4 ramping sets of 5 on the DL. Most weeks the final set will be a new 5 rep PR, so we are taking relatively very heavy weight. When I DL, my lower back...

19 year old strength standards?

I know at 19 everyone varies drastically. But I got 305 on bench today. I’m 6ft tall and weigh about 165. So I was just curious if that’s a good lift or not far off from average!

Bench pressing question

This is probably a dumb question, but figured i'd ask. I am pretty weak, and have issues trying to bench press. When i lift the bar, its like i can't live straight up and down, my arms like wobble back and forth, not because it's too heavy, it's like my arms just aren't able to lift straight. Has...

Is it bad to lay my upper arms on my lat while doing dumbbell bicep curl ?

Hello My biggest problem with dumbbell bicep curl was that my elbows always moved forward during the concentric phase (I guess that's why only my forearms felt sore after my bicep curls). But yearstday, I tried to lock my elbow in place. And to do that, I laid my upper arm on my body (what I...
