Matt, A guy over on the crossfit boards made a series of squat videos. They're full of good tips on squatting, stretches to allow deeper squats, accessory exercises, etc. Here is the first one: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Rq8CWv8UPAI There are six all told right now. I recommend these because th...

ROFLMFAO!! Stuward, you found the next exercise craze for personal trainers! I wonder maybe if it isn't flexibility so much as muscle weakness that is your problem with squats and deadlifts, Dissident. Maybe you should just do leg press and leg curls for now. While you work on your lower back, abs ...

It has less to do with how hard they are and more to do with my lack of flexibility (I love the upright rows - and those usually exhaust me). I'm starting to get more flexible because I stretch a lot so i don't know if i'll hate them as much as I used to. ALSO: Should I throw in hip abductions and l...

ahh and yet again I laugh "Money" exercises might as well have been called "exercises matt hates". Anyways I'll start working on my squat. Should I add the squat onto my other leg exercises or what? Also, should I not worry about wrists so much(get rid of my wrist curls)? Do those bulk with all the ...

It's the same for me on deadlifts, I can't keep my feet flat with the barbell on the floor. I have a access to lots of machines so I can do hip abduction and leg curls if needed

hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahhaha that made me laugh... so what I'm hearing is, "suck it up and do deadlifts/squats" should I throw those on top of my current routine and pull out my wrist exercises or what? P.S. my flexibility sucks, i think i'd only be able to do partial squats - and aren't thos...

like I said I've always been REALLY skinny. My elbows have never hurt, only my forearms when I first started working out. I absolutely HATE deadlifts and squats. The biggest reason I don't do much legs is because I played lacrosse. I had decently built legs before I started hitting the gym every day...

Pre/Post Work out foods

What sort of food intake pre/post work out would I need for gaining muscle weight/muscle mass. Currently I have an apple or two an hour or so before my work out and afterwards I try to have a meal or at least a multi-vitamin, fish oil, glutamine, and a 50g protein shake. Any advice is appreciated. T...

My body fat percentage has never been very high. I remember taking one back in high school and i was at like 3.9% and I never exercised so I don't think that's the problem. I think I just need to keep on my routine, i'm really impatient with this sometimes (plus I've been sick for the past like week...

Abs - Question about definition, and my abs specifically

I've been working out for 4 or 5 months now and I had a question relating to abs. I've switched up between a couple different ab routines and for the past few months the only ab exercise i've been doing is the Hammer Strength ab crunch machine (up to 130 lbs doing 12,11, and 9 reps). My abs have bee...
