Good deal!! I'll check them out. Anything else you might recommend for me as far as which muscle groups I should work out together. For example I've been doing Biceps and Triceps one day, would it be better for me to do Biceps and something else or does stuff like that even matter? Thanks alot, I'm ...

$30 is expensive for this? How much do pullup bars normally cost? They don't have them at my gym unfortunately. I've seen these but I've wondered if my walls were strong enough for them!

The workouts I've been doing have come out of a Men's Health Total body guide I purchased earlier this year. I'm new to the site and to weight training in general so I had no idea that lower body work would also be a key to upper body. What exactly should I be doing then?

Yeah Martial Arts movies tend to do it for me too! Also like superhero movies to get me pumped. Even though they aren't real!

A little off topic here, but I've also seen guys bench with their feet on the bench. What is the purpose of that? I've never gotten the nerve to ask them why they are doing it!

That's not a terribly good routine. You're working out 4 days a week, but: - Two days a week are chest days (chest and shoulders, chest and back) - One day a week is arms - One day is "whatever you can do" I don't see any legs in there... I'd recommend you take a look at the sticky in this forum of...

There's one guy at my gym that gets me. He's big (fat) and granted he is pretty strong, but he'll use like 3-4 pieces of equipment at a time. Then he'll go over to the dumbbell rack and instead of getting his dumbbells and doing his exercise, he'll just stand right by the rack and do the exercise so...

Biceps Question

Hey my name is Matt and I'm a newbie! I have a question, I've been working out about 4 times a week since July. In that time I've seen alot of improvement in strength in all muscle groups, except my biceps. I'm still lifting about the same amount of weight for biceps exercises that I started with. A...
