    Hi,

    I'm new here. Actually, I signed up just to ask this question, but seems to be a good community here.

    Anyway, Im 33 years old, 5' 6'' and I fluctuate between 170 and 180. Ive maintained my athletic build and broad shoulders but have managed to become flabby. Newly forming love handles, chest fat especially on the edges etc.... Youve heard this one before. I was kind of a freak athlete in high school. At age 16 I was 5' 5'' 160 lbs and benching around 300, running a 4.6 40, you get the picture.

    So, the dillema I have here is that I love to exercise. The wife and I work opposite schedules and have a toddler so I am absolutely restricted to working out at home. I own maxi climber which I love for cardio and sets of 5, 10, and 20 lb dumbells. Simple enough, right?

    Well freak athleticism aside, I found out around the time that my joints were bad. Very bad. I was born pigeon toed so of course my hips are shifted slightly inward. I stand correctly now but my hips dont.

    I had shoulders that liked to come out of socket which Ive had both surgically repaired. They still kind of suck. These were my freshman and junior years. My senior year after finding some level of credence and maintainable shoulders (i guess i should have noted that i played football and thjs exassperated my unknowingy awful joints), my senior year i finally earned a spot on the defensive line and long story short i dislocated my kneecap and a piece of the cap broke and that was the end of football. I didny really want to play anyway, but my dad pretty much made me.

    Anyway, Ive managed to do a lot of working out since then, but given my circumstances and equipment, how can i work my chest and back effectively? Im aware of how far my limitations are as far as a doctors opinion goes. Back strengthening is my main concern, around the rear and rear anterior deltoids. Push ups are no problem as Im able to modify to do them effecfively, so I the back is my only concern. My bad. Something easy on rotator cuffs is a plus. Sorry for the Novella, thank you for your time and considsration.


    Sorry

    I forgot to add I also do some yrg yoga, samples from insanity workout, and some pretty tough core exercises. None of that seems to be problematic.

    Hi, I don't know if your still doing this but I was wondering how a 15 year old teen girl should train. I read online that teens between 12-15 shouldn't lift heavy as it makes you shorter and diminishes bone strength or smth. What is your thought on this, if this is your area of expertise?

    Hi there I have a problem. I have a muscle imbalance but the thing is I have been gyming for like 4 months and both my arms look the same size but my right arm just can't do as much reps as my left even though my right arm is my dominant arm. When I'm trying to work on my right arm then it just can't go past a certain point

    I’m not sure what I did but I think my pec is so tight it’s making my trap and shoulder have some pain. My right upper side of my body including the side of my neck is so stiff what should I be doing to loosen it up and increase my rom? And also when externally rotating my right shoulder I get a dull ache
    Definitely not 48 I’m 21 idk how to change

    Rotator cuff impingement and training

    I was diagnosed many years ago with a rotator cuff impingement in my right shoulder, but it was no big deal as it was minor and I wasn't weight training or performing heavy upper body labor. The only symptom I would experience was some wicked joint crackling.

    Flash forward to three months ago, and I took up semi-serious weight training for the first time in fifteen years. Two weeks ago, after reacclimating well, I transitioned to a moderate, five day push/pull/legs split. During the whole process, I'd experience the occasional crackles in my right shoulder but have no other problems.

    Moving on to yesterday: Like my other lifts, I've been bumping up the reps/weight on my shoulder exercises. Also, since the start, I've been performing internal and external rotation cable pulls (~5lb, 1x20) after shoulders were complete. Yesterday, I reached 12lb, 2x15 on front and side lateral shoulder raises and 30lb, 2x15 on rear shoulder. This gym (not my regular one) didn't happen to have a 5lb cable setting on any of their machines, so I went with the 7.5lb weight and slightly lower reps. This morning, my right shoulder isn't just post-exercise sore. It's actually a little bit painful, moreso if I focus on the rotator motions, but I can otherwise still bear weight and have full range of motion, so I'm not concerned about a tear.

    That said, I know if I don't at least change up my exercises a little, I can expect my symptoms to get worse, if not turn into a tear. So then, what should I do?

    Hi there! I was wondering what kind of warm-up do you guys do for Power Cleans? More specifically, what work do you do in order to activate your hips before doing the movement?
