Shoulder press!!

I’m talking machine not barbell, but should you lockout? Also, where should the forearms be vertical? I stop usually a couple inches short of lockout. I’ve read up that vertical forearms produce the most force, but should they be vertical at the start/finish only or through the entire motion?

Cool Power test

A common lower power test is the vertical jump test and its meant to test your maximum output. Does this mean that an individual with a better vertical will also have a better leg press compared to an individual with a lower vertical. P.S is it more appropriate to say the vertical test measures...

Jogging to the gym for cardio?

Sudden Bicep Activation from Bench?

Improving my bench has been my primary goal in the gym this year. I've been doing it anywhere from one to three times a week, consistently this whole year, with only one week-long break. The rest of my routine has been relatively balanced, but it has been bench-heavy. During my workout...

Ab straps vs hanging?

I've been doing a lot of hanging leg/knee raises lately. Some people say straight leg raises are more difficult, but that the knee raises give a better contraction and work the hip flexors less. I don't know which one is better. I usually start out with leg raises and when fatigue kicks in, i...

Glute Imbalance Question

Hey! So I have a bit of scoliosis and glute imbalance which I'm assuming is from it - had it all my life. In the past year I've started weight training so I'm trying to fix it.

Squat shift to right

I only recently realised that its probably quite a good idea to record lifts from different angles to check my form. Saw that during my squat, I start to shift to the right half way just after coming out of the hole, towards the last few reps. I have a minor knee pain in my right knee that I've...
