    You're absolutely right, but I'm trying to set specific weight loss goals for myself, and getting down to a certain percentage is part of that. Knowing where I am lets me know how far I have to go,...

    BF% problems

    I've had my BF measured by both a bio-impedance scale I have at home, and a set of calipers used by a trainer who I don't think has much experience using them. The scale came back at 36%, the...

    Lats sore after deads?

    My leg workout was yesterday, and I did 3 sets of deadlifts. Right after the deads, my lats were cramping up, and today they're sore. I understand that hanging the bar like you do during deads can...

    Morning workouts

    When I work out in the morning, I find that I lose up to 15%-20% on my lifts, but I still feel like I'm exerting myself just as much, and feel just as exhausted afterward as I do when I work out in...

    You can hold a small dumbell between your feet, but a better way is to get one of those small medicine balls (4-8 lbs.) and squeeze that between your knees as you do the raises.

    Damn back

    My weak point is definitely my back. I can only do 3-4 unassisted chins-- my lats are candy ass.
