This summer, Gillette, WY....
I am currently on the starting strength routine at the following numbers:
I was wondering what goals I should set for Squat, Deadlift and Bench for three...
Does a wider stance put more or less pressure on the knees? I would think that if one had problems with the knees coming in on the way up a narrower stance would help that.
Starting strength (doing rows) has definitely helped me gain both strength and visual size. I have only been doing it for two months, and I have not been able to build my squat as quick as I...
Well today I did 3x5 deadlifts at about 240 pounds. Then bench press and dips. I decided to switch the deadlifts out for squats to see if my knees would be sore.
Then I rode the exercise bike for...
So, what are the best dynamic warm-ups for squats?
I found an article here:
Towards the middle of the page it says that using a treadmill or pedal bike to warm up for squats does not help at all. ...
I have experienced some sore knees the night after squatting. I will try to avoid the knee snap on top, and also under heavier weight (im doing working sets of 165 now) after I get tired my right...
Not sure why they are not displaying here on the post.
Here are a few videos. I am only doing 115. I did three working sets of 155 earlier today so I was too pooped to do any more weight. I dont think this is my best attempt at hip drive...
Sorry if this double posted.
What is the difference between the movements?
I know the pull-up works your back differently than the pendlay/bent row. I used to be able to do 135lb rows and 10 pullups. Now I can do 160 lb rows but only one pullup!
So, I want to boost my...
So does anyone have any proof that curls or skull crushers build larger arm muscles than rows or bench press?
Is it bad to do it directly after lifting? Its just more convenient to go to the gym three days a week than 6 if I cant do cardio on lifting days...
Trying to get rid of my beer belly. You are thinking the bike riding is overkill on the legs with the squats three times a week? How often would you do cardio?
I will get a video.
I am using the starting strength routine. After I lift I almost always go and ride a stationary bike for 40 minutes, doing intervals.
For some reason every time I am done biking my knees are sore...
Maybe he has added 110 pounds to his squat over the 3 months, maybe its not his current weight.
Does Rippetoe's style conflict with the style on the squat RX videos?
Is my biggest problem shifting my weight forward probably?
So hips should rise before shoulders? I get confused because I know Rippetoe says hips first but others say chest first to lessen stress on back. Does hips first mean the back rotates?
I have been on the starting strength routine for coming up on two months now. My upper body lifts have progressed some:
Bench - 110/115 to 160
Military Press - 75 to 105
Row - 115 to 160...
