    I want to make sure it actually is coming down, to know whether or not I need to adjust my diet. I'm trying to lose bodyfat without doing a full-on cut (I enjoy eating too much), so the going is...

    They make you schedule at least 24 hours in advance and it takes at least 30 minutes because you have to get measured and then endure them trying to sell you personal training. They never have any...

    body fat measurement variation

    When I joined 24 hour fitness back at Thanksgiving, they measured my bodyfat for me and came up with 23%. It has been impossible to get them to measure it for me again without a major hassle, so I...

    I'm in decent shape, I'm just not used to running up and down for an hour and a half. I was huffing and puffing near the end, but I was still jogging most of the time (and hitting shots) :)

    What have I done to myself? :)

    I just started playing basketball one morning a week to hopefully add some good sustained cardio to my 3 day lifting split.

    I played about an hour this morning (on oatmeal with high protein milk...

    I guess I wasn't clear. I was under the impression that people in general should be able to squat more than they bench press, and deadlift more than they squat. That doesn't hold true for me and...

    Squat vs Dead vs Bench weights

    Something seems off about how much I can squat and deadlift vs bench.

    For bench I do 3 sets of 8 reps with 1st set at 175, 2nd at 195, 3rd at 205.

    My squats started poorly about 4 or 5 months...

    strength/bf question

    Does an increase in strength while maintaining the same weight definitively mean that bf% has gone down?

    Last week I hurt my collarbone doing dips, so I'll say dips. I can do 3x8 with bodyweight or bw+5, but I never feel really solid doing them.

    I do 3x8 with slightly increasing weight each set for:
    Squats
    Leg Press
    SLDL
    and then 2x10 of calf raises and that's it.

    Seems to get everything pretty well.

    I just started deadlifting a few weeks ago and my grip strength wears out before my back.

    I just checked the videos again.

    I think I might not be sticking my ass out enough. Instead of keeping the bar over my feet it ends up slightly in front in the lowered position.

    I keep my back very straight...as odd as it sounds, it might be the focus on keeping my back straight that causes it to get hit more.

    I'll try to "think" about my hamstrings more.

    SLDL vs regular deads

    WBB routine 1 I think has SLDL on leg day and regular deads on back day. When I do these, though, I feel SLDL in my lower back a lot more than with regular deads (which I feel more in my legs). Is...

    Actually, the worst thing is ****ing shin splints.

    I'm only doing 1 or 2 HIIT sessions a week and my shins are always sore.

    As far as chinups go, you can buy a chinup bar that mounts in a doorframe for about $5 (I got mine at Academy Sports). It takes all of 5 minutes to set up with the proper tools.
