  • My squat is going up but not my Deadlift.

    Hi everyone, I run a PPL split similar to Coolcida but with deadlifts on the second leg day. I have experimented with heavy sets in the 1-3 rep range and this past month, I was able to take my max...

    Thanks for the share.

    When I do pulldowns, I always do it with a reverse grip with alternating widths because I feel it best on my lats. An overhand grip irritates my arms and I don't feel it as...
  • Focusing on vertical pulls as opposed to horizontal?

    I train using a PPL split and I enjoy starting out with vertical pulls like the lat pulldown because I would like to get a wider back. Is there any major difference in "focusing" on vertical pulls...

    What's wrong with monolifts? I hate walking out for squats and that equipment sounds really convenient.

    Also should I stop maxing out on the long run? It's really fun for me just doing high RPE...

    Yeah I really suck at walkouts. Sometimes I wish my gym had a monolift.

    As for breathing I definitely couldve gotten more air but the weight room packed and I didn’t wanna risk catching the kung...

    Coping with an injured wrist?

    So yesterday I tried testing my max on the squat and failed at 315 lbs after being able to do 305 lbs for a rep earlier. When the bar fell, the safety pins caught the weights though I believe the bar...

    Thanks for the tips everyone, I managed to bench press one plate for 5x5 pretty easily today. I guess my head sliding up was affecting my tightness.

    lol yeah, someone finally noticed. One of the accounts is used mainly on my phone (forgot the password for an account a while back but managed to fix it). I don't pay much attention to which account...

    My machine maxes at 170 lbs and I can do sets of 8 or more with 140 lbs. Most likely will just go back to the normal pulldowns one day though I might continue to use this machine for the sake of...

    Would lat pulldowns or some sort of row between sets of bench work as well?

    I can do sets of 4-6 chins but I absolutely suck at pull ups. Honestly I rather just stick to lat pulldowns and add in reps or weight over time.

    I do RDLs on occasion but I kinda prefer Deads.

    Thx. Yeah though sometimes I lift 7 days a week because I get bored during rest days. I don’t feel beat up though I will take a rest day if I lack energy (which rarely happens).

    Lol that was a quick response.

    Is it a bad idea to throw in some rear delt work on my non-shoulder days? From what I've heard, the back can recover fast and I don't know if more pulling would be...
  • Is my Chest/Back, Legs, Shoulders/Arms split alright?

    I used to be on Cooclida's PPL but I decided to switch up the muscles to do something novel. I find this to be fun and I don't have issues progressing on my compounds (be it in reps or weight).

  • Anyone have experience with the Nautilus lat pulldown?

    Is there a big difference between this and the typical lat pulldown? I feel my lats work a tad bit more on the Nautilus machine. I find it convenient you can adjust...
