  • Which muscles are not hit by compound lifts?

    I'm wondering which muscles aren't hit or are underactivated by common compound lifts (like squats, bench, overhead press, rows, deadlifts).

    Yeah I don't seem to have the motivation whatsoever lol. It seems like as soon as I start feeling a burn, I lose the ability to continue lifting the weight. Whereas with heavy weights I seem to be...
  • Strength training has given me quicker results?

    Anyone else have this experience? I started lifting heavier weights for lower reps and the results were practically instant. My arms looked bigger in the first week. Is this temporary? Does strength...

    Easy high-calorie recipes?

    I've been losing weight since I started working out again, I need around 3000 calories just to maintain my normal weight of 180. I'm down to 175 after lifting weights for about 6 weeks with very...

    You just have to stay dedicated. You can only put on about 2Lbs of muscle a month max, so you'll have to workout consistently for years to see changes. What I've heard is you should aim for about 12...

    Oh I felt fatigued. I felt awful and didn't sleep correctly for a whole week. My lifts have been staying exactly the same basically. It seems like the workouts mentally exhaust me halfway through as...

    Can't tell if I'm recovering in time

    I've been doing stronglifts, but only 1 day of rest seems to be too little for me. After two days I'm still pretty sore and I can feel the tightness in my muscles, especially my chest and legs. If I...

    My understanding is the maximum load (reps x weight x sets) while still maintaining recovery will be optimal for muscle growth.

    I'm going to start doing the same most likely. Short workouts are way more convenient for me and I'd rather split my 3-day-a-week full body routine across more days to avoid being fatigued halfway...

    How's this program look?

    It's basically stronglifts 5x5 modified to be a muscle-building program. My biggest worries are:
    1. Exercise frequency may be too much, since it's more than SL5x5
    2. Some exercises might be missing...

    It's a split based on motions. So lift day is anything that involves lifting motions (deadlifts, leg curls, back hyperextensions).

    I guess I really mean it taxed me mentally. I couldn't give it my all on each compound because I was completely worn out after the first couple every time. Going to a split helps that but I'm worried...

    My arms grow like crazy from bench pressing. If you bench press really low (to your chest, without a huge back curve) it seems to do wonders for your triceps and biceps.

    Split vs compounds?

    vs split-compounds? lol. I do a 4 day split now (squat, press, lift, pull). I keep thinking, how the heck am I going to build muscle only hitting each muscle group once a week? But I switched to this...
