    I actually tend to hyperextend rather than go into flexion, but that’s a problem in its own right of course. And true, the closer I get to my working weight of roughly 85% of my (estimated) 1RM, the...

    I do single leg leg presses already too (and regular leg press for that matter).

    And yeah, I know total A2G isn’t necessary, but is hip crease to knee and no further going to be as effective for...

    Hmm... I’ll give it a shot. Might be a mental block or the feeling that I‘ll end up in hyperextension.

    I already do barbell hacks after deadlifts (1x per week), but even using 25 lb plates I can’t really hit depth Before the plates hit the floor. So it’s a reduced range of motion, but I think it’s...

    Yeah, probably. I’ve been playing it safe and omitting them completely until further notice, but I’ve done a 1:1 BS to FS frequency ratio in the past for my low back and recovered well. Though I...

    Front Squats

    So I recently tweaked my low back. Nothing serious, but definitely a yellow flag. I’ve chosen to sub in front for back squats to ease up on my posterior chain so I can continue to progress on...

    I don’t have trouble manipulating my scapula with a backpack higher than lower, and I find that the latter puts too much stress on my low back. Grated, the pack is large enough to cover the majority...

    I would still work within 1-2 reps Short of failure. The exercises in question are crossovers, straight arm pull downs, and close grip pulldowns. Well the last 2 aren’t exactly isolating, but I’ve...

    I do have a variety of rubber loop style bands, but no anchor style ones. Still, after having used them during quarantine, I’m not a fan due to the lack of a proper eccentric.

    Equipment limitations

    I’m on a PPLUL, but I only go to the gym for lower/legs and do the rest at home. I’m good on home equipment for most of the stuff, but I lack a cable machine for some of the isolation exercises (and...

    Backpack weighted push-ups with handles. Got better results with them than with bench press, and I don’t foresee myself going back any time soon.

    I’m on Viking’s PPLUL, so yeah quite a bit of volume. I took a quarantine-induced deload for about a month in March but otherwise I’ve been running his stuff for almost 2 years (but with incredible...

    Looks like you’re right... blood pressure concerns, blood sugar concerns, digestive concerns. And glucosamine is the main active ingredient in the wide range of joint support supps :(

    Joint support

    Recommendations for a joint support supp (ideally something that won’t break the bank)? I’m constantly dealing with joint issues, most notably in the shoulder and knees, both of which have forced me...

    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...

    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...
