And what if I'd take the Push-Pull routine? Am I able to do a workout two days after each other, or is it just the same?

Thanks for your effort, but I can train more than 2 times a week, so should I use your workout and do it 2 times a week (ABXABXX or ABXAXBX)? It's this one: Workout # 1 (full-body) Squat Bench Press Bent-over Row Dumbbell Lateral Pushdown Workout # 2 (full-body) Straight-back Straight-leg Deadlift S...

Well I'm thinking about how to do the workout, but I now have a workout with 10 (x2) exercises, it's to much for me to do them in 1 hour, because I don't have much equipment,... Are you able to cut it to about 8 exercises (leave the least nessecary), or should I do some minor muscles three times eve...

Can I use different exercises every workout or is this less good for gaining? Eg: twice a week I'd do normal bicep curls, but the other time I'd do Hammer Curls.

And what about an extra day in which you train your neck, forearms and other not trained bodyparts (not a full workout, rather a half)?

Thanks for the advice, but what is the advantage of full body workouts to a split routine, because I've read different contradictions: a 5-day split routine is best for a teenager, a full body is better for strength, others say it's for mass, ... I understand that they all have different uses when y...

Statics

Hello, I want to do 'statics' next week: You use your normal workout weight, but instead of doing reps you do a half rep (= a rep w/o the negative) and just hold it for as long as possible. Will this encourage the muscles to grow more or is it just a waste of time? And it's almost time for exams so ...

New exercise?

I believe I've just 'invented' a new exercise, altough there might be other people who has used them. But I've never seen anyone mention it. And I tought about Reversed Flyes: instead of spreading your dumbbells like you are a cross, you'd cross them over your body. And then you'd just do like you w...

If you do the stomach vacuum, are you still 'allowed' to inhale and exhale, or would that deminish the results you'd gain? Because I can't hold my breath for a minute.

Weak triceps, weak bench press?

Hello, I believe I have a weak triceps because I can Curl 12 kgs (about 27lbs) 14 times with 1 arm and when I do Triceps Extensions, I can only do it 13 times with 12 kgs. With both arms: my triceps are only about 50% as powerfull as my Biceps. Is this resulting in my low weight for Bench Press? (12...

Leg exercises

Hello once again, I've just done some leg exercises, but it really did not went well: I've only done 1 quad and 1 hamstring exercise. I've only done these two exercises because I had no more will to continue my exercises. When I was doing the Straight-leg Straight-back deadlift my arms couldn't hold...

Hello JHS, I am new to bodybuilding (just started) but I have already used some db Triceps exercises from which I really felt my arms burn and see them getting larger, especially the Kickback and Triceps extensions. The Triceps extensions will really improve your lateral head (outside of arm) and wi...

Thanks for the replies. I'll do some db pullovers in my back exercises. But I've seen on your site that db pullover is a chest exercise and barbell pullover is a back exercise: does the difference lie in the widened grip of the barbell and would you be able to do db pullovers with 2 db's? So you wou...

Broadening the shoulders

Hello, I was wondering: will you broaden your shoulders (the bones) because of shoulder exercises? I'm 16 yearswhit normal-width shoulders so I am hoping it will be like that :) This is my shoulder exercise scheme: once every week (every exercise x2): Shoulder press Upright row Rear delt row (EZ-cur...
