Thanks for the reply. I accept your point and agree with you. Since I have been injured I have been studying this as much as I can - which isn't as much as I want to. I find myself fascinated with all the information that i used to regard as "boring". Infact, i have just ordered a book called "the m...

Thanks for the replies. It could be on hold anyway, for some reason, I stopped training completely and it got worse. I can't move my left arm (upper) without hearing and feeling all sorts of clicking and cracking noises from my shoulder, with the odd bout of pain. It is healing slowly though. When I...

Thanks for the replys. Obviously, there are lots of variations of pushdowns. Can anyone recommend any? For example, to focus on the lateral head, what would be better between V-bar push downs and Rope push downs (bending wrists at full extension)? I'm just trying to get my head round tri's. Im not s...

Thanks for the response. Im really looking to bring out the lateral head. I know the Long head should be bigger anyway but my left arm lateral head is bigger than my right arm lateral head - and im right handed. I also keep a close eye on form, and when I do single arm tri exercises, my right arm is...

Hi, thanks for the response. I don't really have problems with my wrists and hands. They are sore the night after, and some times the day after certain workouts (mostly back, tri's). I was just wondering if this could lead to any long term problems? I always expected it to go away, similar to when y...

Thanks for the replies. I was in the gym yesterday and trained my chest. Straight away with dumbells I knew I couldn't go heavy so I decided to superset therefore, I decreased the weight i was lifting by 50%. To clarify, I performed a superset on the same muscle (chest), alternating dumbell flat ben...

Thanks for the advice. I think you could be right - it probably is just a sprain. I did go and see the doctor and have been referred to a physio. Since the visit(and 2 weeks off) I have been back in the gym and spent time just messing around with exactly what causes the most discomfort. It is by far...
