    No shame in starting with the bar or the lightest dumbbell, have to begin somewhere. Personally, i'd ditch the machines and stick with freeweight and bodyweight exercises - they'll do more for you...

    I have a unique approach. I never change the exercises(2 each muscle) but each month I instead switch from 3 sets each exercise(high volume) to 1 failure set each(low volume). As far as...

    Wide back squats feel terrible for me(probably my most disliked lift), force a substantial weight drop(which i'm open to if an exercise has more stress per pound), and instability in that position, I...

    I tend to pyramid up in weight usually, so the only real breaks I take are when i'm changing plates for the next set, then I go again. I used to rest between sets but I found i'd start to lose a bit...

    6 day upper/lower might work for awhile, I did it. Learned my lesson though, too much accumulated stress on the body and not enough recovery. No recovery no development, so I switched to a more...

    Lately I like farmer's cause they're a convenient way to hit both forearms and traps with something intense enough to stimulate both areas, especially since I don't have anywhere near enough weight...

    When I do em, I tend to have to drop the weight to a third of what I usually use for farmer's walks, i'm a lot weaker carrying overhead. The stress per pound is considerably higher, so I feel like I...

    I'd say canned fish gets considerable hate, despite not actually causing a lot of what people say it causes. Same could be said for gluten, and gmo products too. It's fear mongering by the media,...

    Front or hack squats(the barbell version) are your best friend as far as quad mass goes. I've tried many different quad based exercises, but I always end up coming back to those because they hit em...

    How wide a grip are you using? The wider you go, the more the lateral delts get stressed on overhead pressing.

    The only direct things i've ever done for biceps are chin ups and zottman curls, and they seem to respond well to those. Possibly genetic but they seem to be one of my better bodyparts. But yeah,...

    From the beginning it's always been an at home operation for me. The fanciest i've ever had it was with dumbbells, barbell, plates, a bench, stands, pullup and dip bars - but in the very beginning I...

    Farmer's walks should be prioritized, and wouldn't hurt to have a clean somewhere in the routine either. Wrist rolling also effective here.

    Weird, I seldom feel any soreness from front squats at all - unless going pretty deep into them. A very natural and comfortable feeling movement for me. Almost always feel barbell hack squats very...

    Barbell hip thrusts and weighted sidekick supersets are generally all I do for glutes(6 sets of volume for glutes per lower body day). Done before quads and hams, it warms them up appropriately also.

    I'd say 24-36 reps a session, and since I hit my muscles 3 times a week - 72-108.
