It occurred to me today that we have never offered a unique discount just for WBB members. That is kind of goofy considering AtLarge owns and wholly funds this site not to mention the fact it is the sole advertiser here. So, for those of you who have been loyal to us for years, thank you! For...
I'll be posting video examples of exercises from my training sessions. I'm hoping this will help some of you come up with ideas for you workouts and how to perform the movements.
If your an aspiring bodybuilder, figure, or even bikini competitor don't fall prey to what's traditional in this industry when it comes to competing. It doesn't take countless hours of cardio a week & extremely low calorie levels as I see many do just because they think that is what they have to...
TAKE A BREAK!!!
I have been getting emails from competitors asking if/when they should take time off from training. Absolutley!! Intense(key word here) training physique competitors should take micro rest periods every 10-16 weeks depending on the individual's biofeedback and their current...
One of the mistakes commonly made by aspiring physique competitiors or the trainees in general is that they blindly follow routines and diets of the champions they see printed in the various magazines. This is wrong for many reasons. 1) that routine may only be suited to the champ they are reading...
Cardio (steady state) is often over used and absued during pre-contest training or with most trying to reduce bodyfat. Trainees think they are doing aerobic activity to raise metabolism, but that couldn't be further from the truth. What aerobic training does is make a person more "efficient" at...
I'm 28 years old, started to lift since 2 months with an all around routine (full body).
Now I need to change my workout schedule, a friend suggested me these workout routines 3 times per week switching the order each next week (for ex. A-B-A, B-A-B):
Hey guys I was wondering if you could check my form on the power clean.
A few things:
1. I just started a new job so im doing this in my home because i've been getting home very late. I normally don't perform power movements here as the space is limited.
2. The angle doesn't show my feet....
Talks about her prep for a figure competition (she has previously been a powerlifter).
In this video I talk about increased tendon rigidity from strength training and its implications relative to mobility work etc.
A short article I wrote today:

Well I came to the conclusion that squats tend to knock my ribs out of place. So those are out. What would you recommend to take its place? Thanks
I need your help in figuring out what went wrong with my lower back.
Lately, when I've been squatting, I've had a feeling of my lower back feeling weak or giving out at the bottom of the squat, seems to happen just when I reach the lowest point in the hole.
I've been working out for quite sometime now and what I've noticed is that my biceps compared to my other body parts take the longest to grow. Genetic-limitations aside, I'm looking for some helpful tips on how I can increase the size of my biceps.
I've been doing research on this and one thing...
This past winter/bulk I had switched from high volume to 5/3/1 and made HUGE steady gains all winter. With cutting down for summer I want to experiment a little for the next month or two and see how it works out.
Basically I will continue 5/3/1 but only every third training session for that...
Hey guys, so for about the past 2+ months I've slowly been dieting down and right now my carbs on any given day are between 95g-130g. My energy has been pretty good lately but I have the Tough Mudder race (13 miles, 25 obstacles) this Saturday. My question is should I up my carbs the Friday before...
Testosterone ! I am 48, would it be a good idea if I am wanting to get back into the gym to ask my MD to prescribe some to me? I mean would it help me in the process of body building????
I'm curious as to what the opinions on back training are here. What are your favorite back exercises? What's worked best for you? What rep ranges are most effective? Feel free to post your favorite back program, I'd be interested to see what people have to say.
As for me, pullups have never...
So I just got back into it after a 6 month hiatus due to work. Now, other than being incredibly weak, when I go to do back squats my spine hurts while squatting. It doesn't really hurt after at all, just when I am in the motion of squatting. The pain is right below the middle of my spine and it...
Does it look OK? Thanks

I don't have any before pics but here is a current one, been lifting for 3 months now consistently 3 days a week doing HCT-12
I was 250lbs and my current weight is about 195, anyways to my questions.
I'm not sure what I should do at this point should I cut or bulk with how my body is now?
I'm new to this forum and looking for some advice..
I've been lifting consistently for the last 2years with the exception of about two months off during the holidays because of a Collapsed lung. But I'm back at it as strong as before. The problem is that before and after my injury are the same...
So.. I've been lifting nearly 4 years now, and seriously (3-4x pw) for three and a half.
As expected my gains have slowed down somewhat. Over the past six months i've started to shrink! My arms have dropped from nearly 17 to 16", this is uniform with other body parts.
So I decided to do dumbbells instead of barebell bench for my chest this week.
First, I was surprised how much more I could lift. Total combined weight (Bar included) seemed to be higher with the dumbbells. Still, I ran into a bit of a problem:
Without a 'spotter' what is a safe way to get...
I have been doing the below workout for the past 5 weeks with good results. I just want to make sure I'm not missing anything and that I'm doing enough sets?
Flat bench 3x6 (last set RP)
BO Rows 3x6 (last set RP)
Tricep bench dips
Rack Chins (last set RP)
I want a body like bane is starting strength the way to go?
I currently weigh 147lbs at 5ft6.
