    Since I'm not a doctor, I can't advise you like one. However, from my own experience, you sound like you have mostly damaged soft tissue in ways that you can overcome with time.

    Do not let this...
  • Suggestions for lifting tracking app that allows online workout editing?

    I've been using the Strong App on Android and it's quite helpful for tracking progression.


    However I like to cycle through workouts a lot ("mix things up") including changing rep/wght ranges,...

    I'm right handed, but my left triceps and my upper left trap are both bigger than my rights. Not such that anyone else would notice because everyone else's gag reflex would distract them before they...

    Agreed, although regarding the calories, it's 100% about the calories you EAT and 0% about how many you burn.

    20 years ago I dropped 60 pounds of fat, exercised very little, but was eating a very...
  • That's helpful to know. I started out with the...

    That's helpful to know. I started out with the side laterals trying to go heavy (8 reps to fail on the hardest sets) but found out quickly that it was just too hard on the joint. So now it's 12-20...

    That's helpful to hear....those are basically the same exercises I've been doing except that I was only doing barbell OHP and AP for a while. Now I'm focusing on laterals and rev flyes to catch up...
  • Can you clarify what you mean by "not sure why OP...

    Can you clarify what you mean by "not sure why OP is making this hard"? How exactly am I making it hard by asking whether AP does the mids and rears effectively?

    I'm not the only one who's ever...
  • How well does Arnold press hit mid/rear delts?

    I'm trying to balance out my delts, my fronts are way ahead of my mid and rear delts because of how much I love overhead presses. And, because I've failed to appreciate how critical the rest of the...

    #1 thing I wish I knew, you cannot exercise off a crap diet. A fit body happens at the dinner table.



    #2 thing I wish I knew was that my football coaches weren't training us for hypertrophy. I...

    Actually, I bet you can look even more badass than Kane. You're going to look like badass YOU.

    It's cool to admire the man and let him inspire you, but as you build muscle you're going to...

    I'm a novice, and probably overdoing myself, so take what I'm about to say with a grain of salt.

    No sets to failure until well warmed up.
    Once warmed up:


    Arm isolations, EVERY set to fail....

    Coffee (black) before lunch, never after 12:00 though.

    No pre-workout stuff other than MAYBE a little whey shake (1 scoop max) but even that is rare. Most days I'll eat some grapes, an apple, or a...

    Yeah this is possible. I go pretty hard when I'm there. Maybe I'm crossing the point of diminishing returns.
  • What evening exercises help you sleep the best?

    I have to workout most days from 5-7pm (not necessarily 2 hours worth, usually 60-90 minutes). That's the only time slot available.

    I'm not an insomniac but I've had trouble the last couple months...

    Lol, well that list isn't necessarily the actual order I do them in. That's kinda the point of the whole post. What order would you approach it?

    Strength, with hypertrophy as secondary. Not into any powerlifting competition. I've worked manual labor most of my life so I'm not terribly out of shape, but at 43 I need to err on the side of...
  • What order would you do this leg/back day?

    Here's one of my leg/back day workouts. I do 5-10 minutes on a stair climber and 30-40 light reps cable machines for warmup, so none of these below are warmup sets.

    The problem is I sometimes find...

    How exactly is that a contradiction?

    Do you think the strap lifts are the ONLY thing I'm doing that improves forearms? What part of this thread did I proclaim that I would forever use straps on...

    Care to elaborate on what part of my posts you are misreading?

    In my situation, without straps, I cannot deadlift my actual potential..... or rack pull or barbell shrug.

    With the straps, I...

    This should be rather obvious but since it apparently isn't, it's the same reason anyone who uses them needs them.

    I can deadlift a helluva lot more than my grip can hold on to. Especially if...
