    Had really bad forearm pain the last few workouts after a 365 squat PR.

    Taking a few days off and another few easy.

    I may consider not building up to double and single on my squat high rep day....

    Between compounds I rest minimum 3 minutes. Between compound and isolation it probably takes at least 3 minutes to rack the weights and move to the next station anyway.

    Rest between sets isn't...

    Btw, goals are max weight in squat bench deadlift. I could post my whole routine but probably not gonna help much. Considering going even lighter and slower on back day. Stricter slower rows.

    Pain in brachioradialis

    Kept trying to figure out what this is online and everything was about tennis and golfers elbow, totally different locations than what I'm getting. It doesn't feel like distal bicep tendon either....

    I do them on the decline bench at the end of push day.

    That black stuff isn't that bad. Don't notice it with the weight on my back.

    Tried strict curl for the first time. I usually use dumbbells and lean a bit forward so it was weird. According to...

    For a while, my gym that was around the corner opened up for sidewalk workouts. They were really pricey and they had to bring out equipment as I needed it. So I just did 2x or 3x full body. That's...

    Do fewer sets, fewer exercises, or less rest.

    I spend at least 1.5 hours, but that's cuz I take my sweet time between sets. If you do 5 exercises, average 3 sets each, with 3 minutes rest and 1...

    Moved to Petaluma in September and found a gym. They got lots of free weights but only 3 racks inside. They have a few more outside. Dumbbells up to 125. No cable fly which is kinda annoying for such...

    You can't just add weight forever at the same reps. Not possible. Maybe for a few weeks. You do 3x8 with 50 lb dumbbells one week, grab the 55s next week, and lo and behold you are unable to do 3x8....

    Looks like some buttwink, then you shoot your butt up before driving up. Why do you think you can't squeeze a stretched muscle? Every isolation involves squeezing a stretched muscle. You can (I hope)...
