    GMs? What is that? I'm sort of a nOOb to the terminology. Like I said I have been lifting for a while but not really an expert on what the excerises are called.

    Thanks for the advice. I definitely want to add in dead lifts. Is this better than cable rows or seated machine rows? I would rather add in the deadlifts and bypass the machine weights (which I...

    True, I guess I am worried about getting a "gut" from over eating. It's not hard for me to lose the weight when I need to (I can easily do without eating much).

    But as for the whey, the product I...

    Yes, parrallel. I have weaker than normal knees (I'm very small boned) so I can not go past parrallel and I was told specifically that it's VERY bad for the knees.

    Heh, it's cool. I did the free squats today with 225. I could easily do 3x10 of 225. I need to up the weight BUT it's really compressing my spine. I don't want to damage anything....

    I'm guessing the smith is the machine that keeps the bars from moving around? If so, I use it to. Why is this bad?

    Well, one shake is like 25 grams of protein. I take 2 servings before going to bed. I haven't had DOMS since I started doing this.

    My stomach routine is realtively easy. I use the crunch machine (3x reps) and then do leg lifts. The musle is there so I guess I am doing maintenance on that area to try and get some of the fat to...

    Can someone explain what 20 rep squats is?

    20 reps of lower weight?

    Right now I do 3x225 (10, 8, 6).

    Are you saying I should do 20 reps of lighter weight?

    Would this work for other areas...
