    I suppose the "best" answer would be to alternate, but I honestly don't think it makes that much of a difference. Personally, I just use whatever grip feels most "natural" that day.

    it doesnt really matter, just use whatever you feel most comfortable with. youre training your back and legs, not your forearms.

    You didn't need to start a new thread, or ask in this thread. If you searched, you would've found a plethora of threads on that very subject.

    Thanks.
    Overhead press with a barbell is better for muscle balance and it is better to do it standing because you are using your back muscles and abs to maintain an erect posture. Also you can cheat a little on the last rep with your legs if you have to.

    Also, nice thread

    You've got a down right...

    These exercises by themselves can take you far. If you're just starting out or like me, starting over; this is exactly what you need to do to get your body into the shape it takes to pack on muscle.
    Getting fit and getting strong, that's what it's all about.

    Barbell rows

    Just wanted to say that barbell rows and military presses are harder than they look! But I like concentrating on proper form and tightness in proper areas of the body instead of looking around wondering what everyone thinks because who cares anyways. . .

    I'm trying not to hurt myself.

    Awesome thread! I made the mistake of not getting serious with squats when I first started. I found out that, while leg presses are a great way to supplement my leg routine, nothing builds a great foundation like squats.

    Thanks OP for all of the info. My high school football coaches (of all people) never took the time to teach proper form when performing these lifts so I need all the help I can get. My Rippetoe book and dvd are in the mail, but this thread and many others have made for some good reading as I prepare to lift. Much appreciated!

    I would say alternate. Also, not everyone can use an alternate grip effectively. It depends on your musculature and joint mobility to a great degree. For me to do an alternate grip (which DOES help me lift heavier) it throws my shoulders out of square too much (so they are not sitting horizontal so to speak). To me, this makes the lift more dangerous. I say go with straps if this is the case, but not till your heavy sets.
    Lift smart.

    I rear ended a car this morning...the driver that got out of the other car was a dwarf !!
    He looked up at me and said "I am NOT Happy!"
    So I said, "Well, which one ARE you then?"
    That's how the fight started.

    Pullups (palms facing away) and Chinups (palms facing toward you), are also good mass-building exercises for your back. We all know how to do these from grade school (along with the Flex-arm-hang, right?)

    There's not a lot of mystery here. Grab a bar and pull yourself up. If you can't do a pullup/chinup (or can't do many), place a chair under the bar and put one foot on the chair. As you pull yourself up, use your leg to assist you. When you reach the top, stop assisting yourself and lower yourself using just your arms.

    Think about bringing the bar to your chest (not just eye level), and lean back slightly at the top of the movement. Don't swing your body, or "kip" yourself up with your hips. Use slow, controlled movements.

    Once these become easy to do with just body weight, you can do them weighted with a dip belt, or with a dumbell between your feet. (Or small children hanging from you).
