    This, and rack pulls. Also, do horizontal rows 2-3 times a week, and preferably rows that start with your hands low and ending high.

    Maybe? 4 times a week would be too much for me but I’m in my 40’s. Apart from that, Wolf already gave you some pretty good advice. Train the movement you want to improve once a...

    Not sure I agree that dumbbells aren't beneficial as a bench accessory. At best, it’s individualized. I just broke through a several month plateau by doing a two month dumbbell block.

    I agree. If nothing else, it's easier to become proficient at "rooting" (grabbing the floor with your feet, specifically, your toes) while barefoot. Then, find a good pair of shoes to squat in. If...

    I've always squatted barefoot. Normal tennis shoes aren't great because the soles aren't firm, that's why you'll see people wearing chucks when they squat because they're about as soft as plywood.

    Almost every state did for some amount of time. I live in Ohio with, nearly, an R super majority in the house and senate and a moderate R governor, and most things were closed here for 2.5-3 months....

    Agree, but your governor would've done the same thing if he didn't have a republican majority in both chambers challenging every move he made during the height of the "pandemic."

    IMO, chin ups are extremely beneficial for biceps stimulation as they phenomenally recruit the biceps as part of a compound movement. Many back day movements will recruit the biceps, but chins, to...

    Can't see anything in the front pics. In the back pic, the smaller side also appears to be drawn in more than the larger side. Look at your traps to see that one side is "scrunched up."

    Try an overhead extension with a cable or band. For me, you can't replace dips or cg bench but there's something about the way a cable or band hits my tri's that feels amazing.

    In my opinion, maybe a few light sets of banded flyes before you press just to get the recruitment feeling of your pecs (if that's a problem for you), then try your best to maintain that same feeling...

    I did these last night. I used the bar with no weight and did 20-25 reps for four sets. I didn't feel much in the beginning, but by the end of each set my rear delts were on fire. I was shocked by...
