Re: middle ager moving from machines to free weights

Those 6 movements are the basis for many great programs. I would add in a carry, like farmers walks to tie everything together. The main site has this page to kelp you program it. https://exrx.net/Lists/WorkoutMenu There are many ways to split this up. Staring out I would suggest doing 1 push, 1 pul...

If you want to start a thread in the lounge, I'll allow it. That's the place for off topic stuff like this.

Re: A quick question about Periodization

You're describing a pyramid (half pyramid actually). That is a very effective method but too complicated for some people so they recommend straight sets. It can actually be more effective although harder to track volume and intensity. It's just another way to skin the cat.

Re: "Stretching Exercises" Links Almost Broken (Pictures Don't Show)

You should post this in the site feedback section. The forum doesn't always get noticed by the site management people, and those of us that do pay attention to the forum don't work with the site.

Re: High Intensity Advisable With Every Exercise?

Firm muscles fall into the same area as building muscle, just not to the same extent. Size needs volume, intensity, not as much. Since you want firmness and not a lot of size, you can get by with less volume. Reading back, I didn't directly address intensity. First, intensity needs to be defined. I ...

Re: High Intensity Advisable With Every Exercise?

There are 3 main reasons to exercise; strength, endurance and size. Almost all goals are variations of these. You can build strength with a wide range of loads, but usually heavy. Endurance requires light loads and very high reps. Size requires moderate loads and more volume. There is some carryover...

Re: Need advice on exercise selection following injuries

You likely need a physiotherapist to guide you. Your injuries are very specific and it's unlikely that anyone here has the expertise to advise you over the internet.
