Okay, so maybe I'll be writing those muscle-infos for my self, and like posting one example here on wether you want to read more. Anyway, today was just awful.

Re: Dubs Journal Comments

I try to make it even a bit more easier. One way is that I could connect muscles into groups,like muscles that move the scapula, hamstrings, the hip rotator muscles and rotatory cuff muscles in example. Also I could mention a few stretches and gym/bodyweight moves around the muscle. Or the plantarfl...

Re: Dubs Journal Comments

Since my huge anatomy exam is on it's way in just 22 days, I thought I would do something special to learn some muscles of human. I thought I would make a thread, deticated to simply muscles. Nearly daily, I would post some muscles, usually somehow related to each other, and really write pretty much...

Re: To avoid cycling injuries you have to consider the follo

4. Static stretching is best. Stretch slowly, working one muscle group at a time until feeling minor tension. Hold for ten seconds and then release. Before exercising, especially when the said muscle is very important, I wouldn't do this. 10 seconds is way too long of a warm-up stretch. I would say...

Re: Dubs Journal Comments

Gloves for everything. I'm a sensitive man, and I hate when my hands get blisters/callouses and sometimes even bleed after working out. I'm used to them, so it bothers me when they're lost.

Re: Dubs Journal Comments

Also I should note that I have broken nearly every(Bench is few kg away.) 5RM PR that I set two months ago, by doing more than the weight for 5 sets of 5. I still think they are a bit lower than reality, but still, It's something. I'm proud. Especially on the chin-ups. Progress is happening!!

Re: The reasons why you should do a cool down

For what I know, cooldown is okay and a bit useful after a hard endurance training, in example, intervals or some other constant high pulse exercise. But I have never thought it as absolutely necessary. Or at least is it necessary to actually think about the issue and always save time for it. It mig...

Re: Milk - for non babies

I wrote it that way to see what would you say. But think about this: you eat soy - you have less testosterone, you eat apple - you eat pesticides, you eat bread - you get diabetes, you drink milk... Now you're just stupid, seriously. You forgot the part that when you eat food, talk to the phone or ...

Re: Pull ups everyday

I would test it for few weeks or more, then you'll see if it suits your workout. There is always the possibility that your training more than your body can handle, and you can't recover enough before the next workout. Daily pull-ups combined with strong arm/back training can do that if the intensity...

Other it was nice and all, I had the strength to wake up specially for gym at 8am, as my school started at ten. And also I forgot my...

Re: Wrist/Hand Position during Bench Press

Could this be due to poor forearm strength? My forearms are pretty underdeveloped. Been trying to add some mass (with the bar/rope pulley contraption, forgot the name of it) but it's been a tough go so far. No, I wouldn't say it's forearm strength. Many forearm muscles (Like Brachioradialis and Pro...
