    Could be your body mechanics too, or what you consider to be a wide-grip/close-grip. If you think of pushups as the same as barbell bench press, you will be hitting similar parts of muscle on each...

    As much cardio as you can physically squeeze in, whilst staying in caloric maintenance/caloric surplus, will increase your cardio performance/endurance whilst keeping muscle loss down to the minimum.

    ^What he said with regards to the 'arm mass'. Different people have a tendency to store fat in different places and your arm mass is simply that the fat is there too.

    1- You need to unlock your knees in the starting position and then literally do not bend your knees all the way through the rep. Maintain exactly the same amount of knee bend through the lift. ...

    'Retract the scapula' is an absolute MUST to remember when doing chest exercises, especially bench press. If you don't, your shoulders will play a far bigger role and we do not want this! Before...

    If your goal is purely 'health', then probably diet. However, the reason why you started lifting weights 99% probably wasn't that. Exercise more important for everyone else. You can eat **** but...

    You can't go wrong with the traditional push/pull/legs three day split as said before me, however I used to do this and found that by the end of my back workout, my biceps were a little fatigued and...

    I feel like you're probably doing something wrong if you have DOMS in your arms from a workout three days ago, either recovery issues or going stupidly overkill on an arm workout.

    3 rep sets in a manner like that won't do too much for growth, just strength. Better off using a weight where you can squeeze at the top of the movement for a second or so. Don't return the weight...
