    Oh. Yes serious. Turns out 25 pounds was light enough for my thumb but not heavy enough for my chest. So I scrapped that idea. I'll still curl 25 pounds, but only one dumbbell is needed for that. It...

    Ah, you should have kept going. Everyone else was too afraid to go. You would have been the only one there and thus safe from covid.

    I wish I had known that over a year ago.

    Walking in a park and seeing trees is a good antidepressant for me. It would be way better if I could jog, but I accept what I can get.

    I don't know which part you don't believe. That someone who sits around most of the time would have a bit of steain walking more than an hour straight? I've walked much further and faster than 4...

    Nice!


    Hoping on a stationary bike between sets would be good too, but not even most gym goers have that luxury.

    Not trolling. I have weird quirks like staying out of the sun unless I have a wide hat and long sleeves. I avoid sunblock chemicals and car exhaust. I prefer to walk on a treadmill unless I know a...

    Well, I counted the sets and compared it to other beginner sets and decided I will start with fewer.

    Curls and triceps only need 1 isolation per workout.
    I'll drop lats to 2 since there is...

    I agree with what you said. Only problem is my knee is already injured. Crack in cartilage behind knee cap. So I don't know how to strengthen the forward position, or if it even can be. No pain if I...

    I read that power lifters stick to full body 3x per week. Only body builders go for volume and splits.

    Curls is not an olympic event. Nor is triceps extension. Those are for spot adding muscle.
  • How's the volume balance on this training rutine?

    It is for a novice wanting to correct posture, work around some injuries, and build some muscle on a calorie deficit.

    Do you think each muscle group would recover if done Monday, Wednesday,...

    Definitely true the quads engage more if the knee is in front of the toes.

    I wonder if this good form rule is just like going below 90 degrees, that it only hurts for people who are already...

    I wish I could find the women who liked me in high school. I live in another state now, and so do many of them. That is the best way to find love. Lucky you.

    No one else trusts each other.

    I don't buy Almond Joy, so I won't be tempted by it. I have bought packs, and have never been able to save any for later. I always eat them all right away or within 10 minutes. Plenty of excuses.

  • Does doing less push mean I can recover from more pull?

    I want to correct my posture, and had years of pushups and bench press and crunches and hamstring steetches that I think helped give me a hunch back. Sitting down a lot as a kid likely also...

    Sounds like the weight lifted counts as much as the number of sets once the weight gets high enough, as far as recovery per week. Makes sense.

    If your knees are not yet injured, a coach must point out your bad form. If they are already injured, your knee will tell you when your form is off.

    The most likely way people will mess up a wide stance is by starting with their feet parallel.


    Sit on a low stool that makes your upper legs almost parallel to the ground so you can see which...

    My trainer says wide stance hurts less.

    I say the wider the stance, the more you should angle your feet out so they line up with your knee direction, which will be more outward with a wider...

    You've all given great replies. Due to my hunch back I want to fix, I think I'll only do 2 sets of chest presses per workout and 4 of wide grip rowing.

    Pulling exercises build grip and forearms....
