    I've been using barbell excercises (namely chest and shoulders). Why do people highly recommend barbell just because you can load more weight? Isn't it basically the same if the contraction is felt similiarly? Not only that, but using dumbells doesn't require you to need a spotter. You can safely max out and simply drop the weights, rather than literally risk your life at times.

    Note that I'm also legitimately asking, despite it seeming like a critique. I literally want to know, because I don't see a clear advantage in barbell pressing unless it's micro-loading plates (1-2.5lbs).

    I do both dumbbell and barbell pressing but generally prefer barbell because you can load more weight = progressively overloading the muscles. You won’t get hurt as long as you have a spotter
    Squat- 250lbs x5
    Leg Press- 551lbs x9
    Bench- 175lbs x5
    Deadlift- 280lbs x7
    Military Press- 115lbs x5

    Hi, bros.
    Can I get some chest development tips?I feel my chest isnt growing as much as it should.So far I'm using only dumbbels since barbell seems to fuark up my shoulders.
    My max is the 25 kilos dumbbel for 5 reps.I've been counting calories at eating around 2500 calories on off days and 2600-2700 on training days.I've put on 2 and a half kilos in 3 months and I guess the food is not the problem.
    Thanks.
    I'm also doing fierce 5 upper lower routine.
    Oh, and by the way, lifts:
    Squat 85kg for 5 reps
    Deadlift 90kg for 6 reps

    Just follow the program. You still have a long way to go, can't expect much growth when you are just benching 25s.

    Also learn to bench with the bar, it's likely a form issues rather that's causing the shoulder problem. Post form vids.

    Thanks for help mate!I'd rep you but I'm in cooldown.
    I posted one or two bench videos here long ago when I was benching with the bar, it seemed fine.Will think about this option.

    It depends on your goals. If you want to build muscle, eat about 100 or so grams a day, But don't focus on the numbers all that much. Just eat as much as you want, the body will deal with the rest.

    What are you on about? 100 is fine , it all depends on the bodyweight. Most optimal is about 0.8-1 g of protein per lb of lean muscle.

    Is there one bent row grip (overhand vs. underhand) that is more beneficial than the other?

    Also, if my words hurt after front squats, does it mean I’m doing them wrong?

    I'm getting hip adductor pain from squatting. When I was building up to my 150lb squat, everything was fine. After about 1 week, when I started squatting i've been getting that pain. Only thing that changed was I got powerlifting shoes since. Any tips? I warm up/foam stretch my adductor as well before I get started. Any links to stretching adductor you know that could help are greatly appreciated.

    Secondly, I'm starting to get mentally distressed with my arms and bar placement on my squat form. Whenever I use high bar, I get the bones near my shoulder/scapula bruised. When I switch to low bar, it feels nice and no pain but I don't know how to position my arms. Sometimes it feels like there is pressure on my wrist, should my arms be tucked in, or should they be flared out? I think i'm going to drop to 90lbs squatting until I'm certain of my form and I learn how to get rid of this hip adductor pain. Thanks.
