    Go to your local Sports Chalet and get two 10lb plates. They'll probably cost you 10 bucks, and you could take it to the gym whenever you're working out. Sounds kinda dumb, but if I was in your...

    I do 8 reps for each set. I raise the weights when I could do 10 reps thoroughly through the workout. I start by doing a set of 8 reps for the new weight. If I think I could continue, I'll do another...

    Science was never my field of specialty, but I do know this.

    Repping 20 pounds 20 times is not the same as repping 40 pounds 10 times. You get better gains with 40 pounds. I don't know the...

    I would call that elbows out, but like I said... there really isn't anywhere else your elbow could go. My elbow is set. I just concentrate on going up and down. Maybe it's just me and you...

    I don't exactly understand the case of the situation here. If you're benching properly, there's only one place your elbows can be. I guess it would be considered out.

    It just means to focus on one group at a time, instead of trying to get a tricep workout out of chest day. It's too minimal for real growth.

    Deads and squats should be pulled apart by days as much as possible.

    I think the load may have been too much. I don't know if you warmed up or not but you probably pinched a muscle.
