    When I do shoulder press, I can hear my left shoulder clicking and popping. That scares me, and I try to move slower. (My right shoulder was torn 10 years ago as well. Still torn. No surgery.) I...

    Oh, I heard people saying it doesn't have to be 8 sets, but I thought it had to be 8~12 rep max to be optimal in muscle growth. I guess I don't have to get fixated even on the rep number then. (Still...

    I lifted 132lbs 44 times yesterday in 1 set. I lifted 180lbs 20 times in 1 set today. I do 3 sets. Is there supposed to be twice difference in max reps over 50lbs difference? By the way, i switched...

  • Well I suppose I will do 4000 jump ropes...

    Well I suppose I will do 4000 jump ropes eventually per day. But the question is whether one of them burns more Calories when the total is the same. Neither is better and they burn the same Calories?
