    I don’t need to do pullovers necessarily, but I was looking for an alternative to straight-arm pulldowns that don’t involve a machine since I’m doing upper body stuff at home with DBs. I was using an...

    Before my gym re-opened and I was stuck at home without a rack, I introduced Zercher Squats and heel-elevated hack squats. The former helped me with posture and the latter helped me learn to explode...

    Hmm so would you recommend that I switch to Arnolds for hypertrophy even after my shoulder feels better? I guess it makes sense for re-injury prevention too. I don't necessarily do heavy OHP though,...

    Arnold Press/rotator cuff

    The other week I re-injured a former rotator cuff injury (I suspect tendinitis but haven't been able to get an official diagnosis), so OHP has basically become impossible. I've been doing some...

    Replacing OHP with a somewhat lighter Arnold press seemed to do my shoulder favors (which is weird), if that counts as removing an exercise completely. I'll see how my shoulder feels on Saturday to...

    Yeah of course, I was thinking something like half reps/same sets or even half reps/half sets on the big 3 with the same weight. I just jumped into a deload but I've never really been able to get it...

    What do you think about maintaining intensity for compounds and reducing it/maintaining sets and reps for isolations?

    I swear I've seen increased vascularity and some size, nothing substantial, in my forearms since l started doing these. I can't think of anything that I started incorporating alongside these that...

    My adjustables only go up to 52.5 lbs each (I can add plates from the other DB if I do single-arm) so a backpack with an upwards of 115 lbs makes the holds challenging by adding resistance to my...

    This is just a link to the channel, what's the specific video?

    But no this doesn't sound right; I load up a backpack, set it down on a chair, feed my arms through the straps to wear the backpack...

    The voodoo of single-arm static holds

    I've been burning out at the end of my upper and pull days with static holds with adjustable DBs, adding plates incrementally when I reach a specific duration for a few sets. The twist: I load up a...

    Hmm I never sleep any sooner than 2 and a half hours past my last meal anyway and no sooner than 2 if it's just a casein shake. I can't imagine going to bed on a full stomach, that sounds terrible.

    Pre-bed casein

    How necessary is it, really? What I understand is that sufficient daily intake is more important than timing, but the pre-bed casein dogma is as old as time. Casein or an otherwise slow-ish release...

    That's strange to me, I find that the first set is always the hardest. But I don't increase the weight on subsequent sets, I just do more reps.

    Hey, thanks for taking the time to respond.

    My warmup isn't very extensive; I start with squats and prep with the bar for 20 reps, 50% working weight with 100% of working reps or more depending on...

    Hamstring/ankle pain

    The other week I pulled my hamstring leg curling, nothing major, but enough to have me limping the next day (walking is fine now) and inhibit my RDL hinge somewhat. I'm still making solid progress on...
