    I'm going to watch Joe walk. If he can't change directions, without stopping, thinking about it, and then pivoting, then I'm sure he has Parkinson's.

    Whatever the rule are for the game? Someone is better built.

    I know we want to believe that Forrest Gump could shed his leg braces and get a full ride scholarship. But that was a movie.

    I'd prefer cross cables, bands, or a pec machine fly, and being able to keep tension on the chest.

    Not sure dumb bell flies do much. The tension is very short lived. It's much harder to get the...

    I prefer PPL. But it's because I can't do heavy lifting on everybody part in 1 training session. Once I'm finished with heavy squats, I don't have the ATP left in the tank to do bench pressing or...

    Nothing wrong with using a powerlifting program with body building for short periods of 8 to 12 weeks for building your strength. The two schools are going to diverge somewhat when it comes to the...

    There is a lot of thought regarding activating the hamstrings and glutes before you squat, if you are quad dominant. It's probably true that people who sit all day have dead glutes. I've used leg...

    I'd be careful with all the super setting with shoulders and chest. Heavy weight pressing will roll your shoulders forward over time. I'd add work for the rear and side delts. It doesn't take a lot...

    Are you progressing? That's really the only thing that should matter when you are doing a compounds. Are you getting stronger on the bench? Forget about your heart rate. That's what cardio is for.

    If all you have is dumbbells try squatting on a short box or step stool. Deep squatting uses more of your muscles chain. A hinge movement helps. Just walking around with heavy dumbbells will build...

    When fully developed, everyone's shoulders will look different. That's true. But you need to develop them first.

    Not sure what you goals are. Doesn't appear you want to get stronger or build muscle, which is okay for some sports.

    If you've got access to a bench and a squat machine, you might want to do...

    PPL splits are great for people with a strength foundation already established. If you need to establish strength first, I'd go with a whole body first.

    You actually need to give a list of your...

    If you want a big squat, you have to have a strong body. I see a lot of people with no back, especially a lack of lats trying to squat heavy. They just aren't able to stabilize their back and have...

    You won't find a study anywhere that agrees with this. And creatine has been studied for several decades. I wake up to coffee. I continue to drink coffee as I'm lifting. And I've been taking...
