Strength benefits. The more you do a specific exercise, the stronger you will be at it. Simple as that.

Re: Feedback on full-body workouts

Honestly, I would drop all this P90x stuff you've been doing. You need to go to back to the basic barbell lifts. I recommend doing some research on gyms in your area and joining one. It doesn't need to be fancy; just look for an inexpensive gym with at least one or two squat racks/power racks, dumbe...

Re: Ultimate Long-Term Weightlifting Plan

Good ideas. It seems as though step 2 should be approached as a gradual "learning phase" in order to adapt the child to training. Beginning around age 7 featuring bodyweight exercises performed recreationally or for punishment,and gradually evolving into performing basic compound movements performed...

Re: Ultimate Long-Term Weightlifting Plan

Also, the starting strength routines really aren't that geared towards repeating after graduating to the heavier weights. Doing squats three times a week plus DL'S sometimes twice a week with heavy weights is a recipe for wearing a body down. Steps 3-5 were meant to be performed for a relatively sh...

Ultimate Long-Term Weightlifting Plan

Many lifters begin working out as teenagers, aimlessly walking into the gym and performing the latest "bro split" workout. These "workouts" usually feature a colossal number of sets of isolation/machine movements that target the biceps, chest, abs "grueling" 2 hour long workouts that are performed a...

Re: Help with something

I recommend buying an iron gym pullup bar. It's pretty cheap and practically required for a decent home workout.

Re: So I came up with an interesting routine

@Jclem23: What do you think of your current routine? Are you getting results? Are you bored or engaged by it? I'm just curious. I like my current routine alot. I've already seen some small increases in mass since I started it about 3 weeks ago. I posted it in a previous thread that I'm pretty sure ...

Thanks for the replies. I will try to get some more veggies in and increase my overall caloric intake.
