Incline bench, shoulder press... barbells/dumbbells

If a program would call for military press and incline Dumbbell Bench press, could it be beneficial to occasionally cycle in seated dumbbell shoulder press and incline barbell? Especially in the face of plateaus?

Bad Posture or Large Ribs?

When I see guys wearing T-shirts they always show a well defined chest indicated by that clear horizontal crease on their T-shirts directly under their pecs which pretty much says they have built up a pretty good upper chest. Yet I can never get that look when I wear T-shirts as my lower ribs...

Biceps. Single arm vs. double.

I just can’t decide. Like on a preacher bench machine. Single arm vs. double. I feel like single is more effective, but of course it adds time to the whole routine. Then there’s hammers, single vs double. And so on. Opinions.??

Another squat depth thread

So my flexibility allows me to squat A2G very easily, but once the weight starts to get heavy I tend to wimp out and merely hit hip-crease-to-knee parallel to save strength and avoid failing terribly (warmup sets are ass to the floor). Is it worth limiting myself to use heavier weight, or should I...

Pull ups vs. pull down cable

I have switched from lat pull downs to assisted pull ups. My reason is that there’s no cheating, no torso bend to help. I do multiple grips to hit all the back. Much better results. Still learning after 40 years in the gym.

Smith machine opinions.

I used to laugh at people using the Smith rack. Now I’m using it some. One reason is that i workout solo and can get out of a bad spot easily on the smith. Like with a chest press. Secondly, I can focus on the movement and muscle engagement and not have to worry about balance. Like with...

Psych up pre-lift

On a lighter note - we all know Ronnie's "lightweight!", is there anything you often do to try and psych yourself up for a heavy lift? I know a lot of guys like some loud metal to get it done. And I knew a guy who would always say "this one's for <girls name>!" on the last rep :D What do you...

Opinions on smith machine hip thrust versus regular barbell hip thrust

Title says it all. I stick with the regular due to using stabilizer muscles. Is one necessarily better than the other? I'm looking for more info about this subject.
