Re: need sum advice here im devastated here broke my finger

This is something that you can figure out more easily than we can. Just try things. Can you grip the bar with the broken finger extended? This may be a great time to work on the squat, since you really don't grip the bar, but press it against your back. i cant close my hand its my ring finger broke...

Re: need sum advice here im devastated here broke my finger

Train around it. - Work on your one-arm pressing (standing and bench), one-arm pulls, and waiter's walks. - hammer the hell out of your single-leg exercises. This is the time to do DIY weighted backpacks or invest in a heavy weighted vest. - work on your conditioning. Hill sprints, flat ground spri...

It's just an idea. yes that is a helpful idea...thanks...jus worrie bout doing more damage 2 finger on things like bench...incline would be ou...

Re: deadlift-less hamstring training

I'm going to drop deadlifts for a while, my back has been giving me bother the last little while so I'm going to try and get it sorted before going back to them. I can squat pain free so that's something. Thing is, will my hamstrings get enough stimulation from just squats? I'm thinking no, so I'm ...

A good outline of what GOMAD is Yes this is oldskool at the moment I take on about half a gallon slightly less, I am going to t...

Re: Chest + Triceps

So your concern is size and your bench max? I'd pick one of those as your main concern. Personally, I'd pick the bench max. It'll make it easier to measure small increases (bench goes up = stronger; chest measurement goes up a few mm = could be muscle size, water retention, minor tape measure posit...

Re: Chest + Triceps

Maybe try using your 10-12 rep max for your top set for awhile, or add in a second top set of 8ish. You may need more volume, you may also need to hit chest twice a week. Are you eating to grow? Yes I'm eating to grow 5 good meals a day protein shake full of cals meal replacement drinks etc etc.. I...

Re: bulking diet

You can make your own weight gain shakes. Include whey and whipping cream, add an egg if you want. Cream is better than milk because there's no sugar. Keep the fruit and sugar out of your shakes and out of your diet. Post workout you can use corn sugar (dextrose) or maltodextrin in your shake. Chec...
