Front Squat vs Back Squats

Title asks it all . Which of these is the better workout and the most effective when it comes to building some strength? I know I can't front squat as heavy as back so does that mean back is better or is the fact that front squatting heavy weight is so much harder make front squatting the better wor...

Re: DeadLift always gives Hip pains.

I never meant to bash deadlifts. I like them a lot. However, I've learned from experience that if I do them every week my numbers go down instead of up. sorry I know its not right to double post since I already posted a response but I didnt see your comment. Well, I too have noticed in the past tha...

DeadLift always gives Hip pains.

I know Im really young but Ive finally narrowed down why I get hip pains sometiems. I always used to think its ebcause I squat 3 times a week but 2 weeks ago, I did an extra day of deadlifts and my hips felt so sore and hurt and I actually couldnt squat more than 2 sets on my squat day. I dropped th...

Re: New and need help.

I would definetly say start with basics.

Do the stronglifts routine. You dont even need supplements if you are new. Just eat and eat and eat some more. In a year, try to switch out and modify your workout from strong lifts to suit bodybuilding more

Re: Three Rep Workout with Lots of Sets?

c'mon man, you know this already. Of course a 3 rep routine would be worth it! You think that a difference of 2 reps is going to make a huge difference? It's 2 reps, realistically how much difference do you think there could be? Keep doing your 20 rep squat set, keep doing your assistance work and ...

Three Rep Workout with Lots of Sets?

I've really really grown tired of 5+ reps lately and was wondering if a 3 rep scheme would be a good replacement for a little awhile until I get back to doing 5 reps. Are three rep routines worth it? I was thinking of doing A lot of sets of 3. For example: I wanna do 10 sets of 3 on BB Squat and 8X3...

Re: Anabolic-Catabolic Immune System Response to Nutrition

Dont agree with this. You can lose fat and build muscle at the same time. Ive done it. Hell, during wrestling season, no one on my team lost any muscle and we all dropped an average of 17 pounds (actually did the stats on it). In fact, some people got even stronger in the weight room and others drop...

Re: New Workout, Please Judge(Seriously, Need help lol)

I don't like the look of it; it just seems a bit mad to me. I don't necessarily think overtraining is a worry, but I would be concerned about injury to your joints with all that squatting and deadlifting. Remember that your joints take longer to recover than your muscles and you are doing a TON of ...

New Workout, Please Judge(Seriously, Need help lol)

Hey guys, I decided to try something new (well a little) I recently hit my 8 rep goal for 300 pounds (video on the other post) and now I want to cut total reps per set back down for all workouts. I want to work in the 5 rep range to build some serious strength and was wondering if this is a good wor...

Re: Will i over train like this?

how is your intensity during those workouts? What is rest time between sets and the type of rep range you got? Those are all factors that must be looked at.

Re: The mixed grip deadlift problem

I recommend farmer's walks. By far the greatest exercise for Grip I have ever done. Also works your traps and abs. Just pick up 2 dumbells. Hold em at your sides. Puff your chest out and walk until you cant walk no more and repeat. After 3 weeks, your grip becomes stronger so you can either walk an ...

Re: judge my form (video)

Nice! The form looks safe. Just for a cue, drive the chest up when in the bottom, and keep the upper back thight, plus drive the elbows under the bar. One thing I'm thinking is that you are wasting a lot of energy and effort having multiple short breaths between every rep. Is there a reason for thi...
