    Even stress can dramatically affect water weight. It's not always that simple unfortunately.

    If someone breaks a matador because they had too much weight on it I'd like to know about that one. That would be the absolute last of my concerns. What is more important is you are putting it on a...

    I like my matador and it's easy to put out of the way when you aren't using it. Only reason I'd get a standalone station is if I had a ton of space and couldn't think of something better to use it...

    Tricep pressdowns for me. Skullcrushers are hard on my elbows and close grip bench can give my wrist issues. There are enough variations you can do with pressdowns to keep things interesting and it's...

    I have been dealing with TMJ issues as well. I would say your best bet is to heat a quest bar in the microwave for about 10-12 seconds to soften it up. One bars are pretty soft but the chewiness can...

    I don't do as much stretching as I used to. I typically stretch for about 45 min to an hour a couple times a week. I have a foam roller but it only makes it feel better for a short duration after. It...

    If by adding more weight to the bar then you are correct, you don't need to change routines though if it is a good one.

    4 scoops of whey a day is safe, it's just food, but your overall diet sucks and you should really read the stickies and add some vegetables in there.

    While I think half measures like this might work for some, for most people you will end up with some dumbbells and a bench that sits and the corner and doesn't get used. Now if you actually think you...

    I am having pain on the outside part of my left thigh while squatting. It looks like it is an area where the IT band runs across but I do not have any knee pain which leads me to believe it's at...

    Yeah I get that, there are also a lot of different types of wrist braces that support the wrist in different ways. My inquiry was to find out what type would work best.

    I had to take about 3 weeks...

    Yeah it would be the reverse wrist curl, the eccentric portion. As for the stick part, you can bypass it altogether in my opinion. That kind of massage feels good but it doesn't actually do anything...

    Stop doing anything that aggravates it, you do not want it to get worse or become a chronic issue. Start doing eccentric exercises, the video below is a great example but you can use dumbbells as...

    You tell me, you're the one making the claim of much less gains. I'm just trying to quantify this loss of gains and what you are really missing out on from skipping out on the very bottom portion of...

    Can you explain what exactly is lost from the limited ROM of a deadlift and a rack pull just below the knees? You say the gains are much less than you think, how much less? I'm not talking about...

    Yes, in both arms (tennis elbow as well). The key is eccentrics and avoiding movements that aggravate it while it heals. Get yourself a Flexbar and youtube the exercise for golfers elbow and do it...
