    Please could someone estimate my bf% for me? I'm 5'10, 196lbs down from 224 at the start of Feb. Measurements and a calculator estimate around 27% but I understand they're not really that accurate....

    Feeling sick?

    Wasn't sure where to put this so mods feel free to move if not appropriate.

    I tend to do 3-4 cardio activities a week, usually a 5k run on the same day as the gym. My priority at the moment is to lose fat and it's definitely working alongside being in a 4-500cal deficit, but...

    Cool, thanks! I'm not sure if I'm keeping the shoulders that tight, but that gives me something to check next time. I do the lift in two stages - I leg press the bar up to start with then push the...

    To add to where to point the toes, Aaron Horschig has a good video on squat stance and how to know how far to turn your toes out. The title is "squat for your anatomy (find the right stance)".

    Thanks for your input.

    Lower back - muscular or spinal?

    As I try to learn and wrap my head around good form on the squat and RDL, I had a thought about the "pain" I have in my lower back area. It's not pain as such, not sharp or intrusive, or triggered at...

    The main reason I signed up to this forum was to post a form video but I didn't realise you needed 50+ posts to put links in.
