    I agree that you wouldn't want to work to failure on a sore/fatigued muscle, but a lot of people advocate a light workout to help eliminate soreness. I can reduce DOMS with this method, and it...

    I can't wait to get out of our apt. and into a house so I can work out at home. Yea, it's nice watching the gym bunnies prance around, but I can always make excuses why I shouldn't go to the gym. ...

    OK - wide stance, but not sumo. Feet angled out about 5-10 degrees (much easier on my knees like that). I try to drive straight up with good clean form (not leaning forward or back too far). ...

    Sticking point on squats

    Yesterday was leg day. I performed a PB of 3x275 (yay!) - on the 3rd rep, I actually paused about 1/3 of the way up. Believe me, this was NOT intentional! For the briefest moment, I thought I...

    When sitting, I have the worst posture in the world. But, when walking, you're right - I am a lot more upright after developing my lower back.

    LOL!

    I seem to have a mental block when it comes to my grip. On deads, I always have my left hand facing up. That's my dominant hand, and it feels bizarre when I reverse the grip.
