    She feels like her hamstrings are taking over, perhaps a little quads, too. I know "feels" is an unreliable indicator, but it's all she's got. I know you can't hip thrust without using the glutes,...

    Hip Thrusts & Glute activation

    My friend is having a hard time activating her glutes while doing barbell hip thrusts. As we've increased the weight, it feels like her other muscles are taking over and so we've lowered the weight....

    In the off-chance you have adjustable DBs (like I do) and they don't easily rest on your knees/thighs in a vertical position, you can rest the weight plates on your knees/thighs while the DB bar...

    Hey Katie,

    When I started I was doing the same thing. You will do SO much better working full-body every time you exercise. 3 times a week should be all you need. Quality over quantity. You don't...

    HIIT is nice for sure, but I'm definitely more partial to resistance training (weight lifting, etc). The best suggestion will be to do whatever physical activity you enjoy, that will get you moving...

    When I hit 225 1RM that was the best! Went from being able to do barely 20 push ups in August to benching 225 lbs once by the following May.

    Then, doing 205 lbs 5x5 was another great milestone. I...

    I know others have said you're probably past the stage of finding Stronglifts useful and I imagine there are better programs out there, but when I was 22/23 I used Stronglifts to bring my 5-rep squat...

    Stronglifts is not what you are doing. It would definitely be wise to pick a good program, but as ECGordyn said, don't pick that one :P

    I'm realizing now that you're talking about 1RM and not working weight. I honestly can't tell you if it's sustainable because I have very little experience with your stage/progression. I think you...

    Many more experienced people will answer, I'm sure, but those goals definitely do not sound unrealistic to me. The most important factor, as I understand it, excluding nutrition, is going to be...

    I've found that when I squeeze my shoulder blades together and keep my back tight as I'm doing push ups, it feels like it's hitting the chest more. No clue if does anything, but it certainly makes it...

    So, yeah, I don't train my abs at all. Sometimes when I have time Friday afternoon I'll do a teeny bit, but I'm under the impression from the SL guy that these heavy compound lifts will...

    You misunderstood me. I want to cut to reveal my abs, and I'm acknowledging that it's going to result in a smaller chest.

    I don't really know what a recomp is, but from the vague answer I've gotten so far that sounds about what I'd like to transition to. I think I'm going to try to reach 140 by the end of April and then...

    I'm 5'7.

    My hope was to reach 140 before I start cutting (I have all/most of April to go). Or, actually, to hit somewhere around 150-160 by the end of the year and not even worry about cutting...
