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...
A short article I wrote today:
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...

Got a 28 day Strongman Challenge to put on 8lbs of muscle and four workout regimes and a...
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????

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...
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...

Tricep bench dips
Rack Chins (last set RP)
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 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):
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...
In this video I talk about increased tendon rigidity from strength training and its implications relative to mobility work etc.

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...

As for me, pullups have never...
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.
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
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...
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'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...
Is it true that if we alternate our workout, it helps create more muscle definition?
I started the HCT-12 routine these are the workouts I picked are they alright?
Do you guys do single leg training? I rarely do, but I haven't really noticed one leg being bigger than the other. Below is an interesting article and quote.
"In that case, why do single-leg work at all?...
For over a year now I've been having upper back issues. I get a dull ache between my spine and left shoulder blade. I've recently started seeing a physio who has said it's stiffness in one of the joints. He gave me some stretches to do such as thoraic extension. This relieves the ache but only for...
