    I was lured in by the $10 a month membership. One morning a guy next to me dropped his dumbbells from about six inches at the end of his set. That triggered the staff to sound the alarm. I...

    My first weight set was a DP 110lb set that I got for my 13th birthday. I didn't have a bench so I mostly did curls. Curls are my comfort lift.

    No telling. You may have to borrow or buy some weights, or you could visit a local gym to find out. An estimate like that would just be a guess.

    "Just pour some water on it. It won't hurt nothing". Seriously I do so much better using water. Just shake the hell out of it and it will eventually mix.

    I vote that you pinpoint your weakness(es) and then add accessory work to improve those areas. Also, try Thrusters (incorporating a slight squat at the beginning to add a little momentum to the...

    Try front squats or goblet squats if back squats make you so apprehensive. Then as you build up core strength you can transition to back squats.

    I'm not basing this on science or sound logic, but I do my cardio before. Nothing super intense- no marathons or 5Ks, but enough to get the blood flowing and the heart pumping. This is the only way...

    My muscles are too smart to confuse. They are smarter than I am. They always seem to know what I'm doing.

    They're mischievous too. One time I woke up and they had drawn on my face with a black...

    The way I see it is: the elliptical is to conditioning training, what the smith machine is to lifting. It makes work easier, so it can't be that good. I find I get the best results (fat loss with...

    I concur. I had a spotter once who seemed like he was doing the lift and I was spotting him by the way he lifted the bar on every rep. WTF?

    Now I lift by myself inside the power rack. I own...

    Bare minimum I would do bodyweight squats. If you can, once the pain is less intense maybe you could do light weight squats to sort of rehab/condition.

    I'd piss on a smith's machine, but I wouldn't do anything else on it. Don't neglect those trusty stabilizers. Cancel your membership at Planet Fitness and go to a gym that wants its members to...

    I don't believe your thumb has much to do with bench press. I've read that it all comes down to comfort. As for safety- you can do other things like use a spotter or bench inside the power rack. I...

    I like to stretch and rub out tension in my muscles between sets. I'll probably put a tennis ball in my gym bag to use during my workouts. I also use one on my back when I'm driving and when I'm...
