  • Pinched nerve in elbow aka cubital tunnel syndrome (ulnar nerve compression)

    I'm curious to know how some of you guys deal with a pinched nerve in your elbow? I went to a doctor once, but he said it wasn't severe enough to require surgery. He just suggested to take it easy...
  • Rep range for building muscle mass with calisthenics?

    So I know 8 to 12 reps is the sweet spot for building muscle mass with free weights (arguably with 15 to 20 for isolation exercises), but how does that translate to calisthenics exercises?

    If I...

    What goals do you guys all have? I've always been told 8 to 12 reps is the sweet spot for getting big. You can even get muscle hypertrophy if you do 15 to 20 reps.

    Am I wasting my time doing that?...

  • Aren't isolation triceps exercises just for shaping. Most mass comes from compounds?

    One strange thing I noticed about this forum is that people say the bench press doesn't do much for triceps. I had a thread a while ago asking if the triceps are activated more in flat, decline,...

    Calisthenics vs. Weightlifting

    I have a set of dumbbells ranging from 5 to 50 pounds. Is a pair of 50s a waste of time for trying to build muscle mass? Am I better off going to the playground and doing calisthenics? (decline push...

    I used to run 3 miles a day. I've cut that to doing 2 miles every 2 or 3 days once I started weightlifting. There is just no way in hell I could continue running as much as I used to.

    Hard to say for sure, but it doesn't look like it based on that pic. If you don't feel any lumps, then it's probably not gyno.
