    I wouldn't do either. I'd modify my routine--ie, adjust the volume--until the soreness went down to an manageable amount.

    I do squats, deadlifts, rows and standing presses, so I don't see any reason to do ab isolation work. The best ab exercise is probably the front squat, in my experience.

    Wait, there are guys out there who agree to be trained by women? That just strikes me as odd.

    It's actually a bit of a quandary. For if I hadn't been training my butt off and sticking to my routine, I would not have developed the physique that made her inclined to comment in the first place.

    Head pain after benching

    Today I was bench pressing with dumbbells, going for a PR on my second working set. I was really straining and after about my 6th rep I got this throbbing pain in the right back side of my head. It...

    Yeah, I'm pretty sure I had that look. Not to mention the fact that I was about to pass out and breathing too hard to really talk.

    Pride was fun to watch because they had no rules against steroids. Juiced up freaks like Wanderlei Silva could really put on a show in Japan but when he came to America and got off gear he was pretty...

    I'm really surprised the ref didn't stop the fight. I've seen fights stopped when someone was taking much less of a beating, that's for sure.

    My parents got divorced three days before I graduated from highschool. I received nothing and my life was pretty hellish from that point on.

    Was this rude of me?

    I prefer to just use dumbbells. I don't get why you guys are so against it. In Starting Strength, Rippetoe even claims that the DB bench press is a superior exercise.

    Yes, with dumbbells, it's very difficult to get them up for the clusters. I use 85 pounders.
