Sticky Thread Sticky: The Bench Form Thread

We see a lot of threads asking for bench form critiques on this forum. I feel like most of these threads are made because people don’t know how to critique their own form. They just don’t know what to look for. I’m hoping to narrow that gap with this thread. I’m not going to touch on everything,...

"Leverage Squat" similar to a Pendulum Squat?

Squats have always been one of my best exercises but at my age, using the barbell just causes too much pain. Before I cash in my man-card I've been trying other machines in the gym (plate loaded and cable machines) and found one that I really like that calls itself a "Leverage squat" made by...

A question about power shrugs

So pretty much i've always done either farmer's walks or cleans for traps, but once in awhile I mess around with power shrugs. My question is, is this a complete movement for the trap?

Anyone ever incorporate multiple pauses in any lift?

I haven't experimented with this but am curious if anyone else has. IE, pause at the bottom of a squat and then halfway up, or 1" off the ground with the deadlift and again around the knees, etc. I feel this may be useful for people who are much stronger at lockout than at the beginning of the...

Are the big 3 necessary for optimal gains?

While one can certainly achieve hypertrophy with many different movements, sometimes fans of the big 3 barbell lifts will argue that these lifts are special compared to other movements (e.g. the back squat is inherently superior for hypertrophy compared to single leg training) Curious to see...

Barbell Calf raises

DB OHP one arm at a time

Any drawbacks? Particularly with Arnolds. I can focus better on the rotation of each shoulder, get a better contraction, and can lift more weight (or at least more reps, I haven’t tried to add weight to the bells yet). I assume this is because I only have to stabilize half the weight (I’m not...
