Re: DeadLift always gives Hip pains.

I love deadlifting. I have quite long arms so the leverage is on my side. I have a strong grip and great mobility. Also my back can tolerate high loads even when slightly flexed and low back doesn't seem to mind. I deadlift twice a week these days and only if I go heavy on a single variation for wee...

Re: shoulder adduction question

Lats are the most like the most working muscle there. Pecs are assisting as well. The shoulder muscles are more in a stabilizing and antagonising role on this one, because especially the middle and front delts are supposed to abduct the humerus. The rotator cuff muscles also are more in the stabiliz...

Re: Locking out/Deep squat bad for knees?

The main reason why people think squatting deep is bad for your knees came from a study of Karl Klein from the 60's. This study showed that weightlifters showed more laxity in knee ligaments. And weightlifters are frequent deep squatters of course. To this day the results of this study have not been...

What are pushups, if they aren't resistance training?
You are completely correct. I used some improrer words there. Maybe I should've used weight training instead? Or something. Lifting heavy stuff you know.

Re: Will i over train like this?

If you work too much for too long, so that the body can't handle the load and meet this work with sufficient recovery, you will overreach. When this goes on even longer, you will become overtrained. There is no certain amounts or standards for that.

Re: Need a hand here...

talking about the dips, i thought dips is one of the best for tricep, thats what i've read in an article somewhere in the web but if it's not good.. i'd better change it. Dips are good. They are one of the best exercises for upper body strength and mass. But chair dips suck. If we are thinking the ...

Re: Need a hand here...

If you can do 5 sets of 50 proper push-ups, then that's awesome. Move to harder variations (legs elevated or one-armed) or start resistance training. I don't recommend chair dips to anyone due to the stress it puts on your shoulder, but if you can handle it without pain, then go ahead. All in all, t...

Re: phosphatidylserine to help "switch off"

yeah I got the PS from soy which is apparently totally useless, thus rendering my experiment completely pointless... Not necessarily. It might have a placebo effect. Or atleast it could've had it. And the soy version still most likely has those cognitive function improving benefits, so you might wa...

Re: phosphatidylserine to help "switch off"

Are you sure that you have phosphatidylserine direct from bovine cortex and not any other source? Because according to Examine.com the other forms of said supplement won't effect your plasma cortisol. Also take note that both of the cited studies talked about exercise-induced cortisol changes. Corti...

Re: Need a hand here...

What kind of exercises are you doing for your triceps? Different exercises might activate the triceps differently. For example, doing overhead elbow extensions could possibly isolate the longer head more due to it's origings and leverages. But yeah, it could be something personal and genetic as well...

Re: Will i over train like this?

I'm gonna say that you can do ab exercises on the off-days, sure. The body will adapt and learn to recover if your nutrition and sleep is ok. It will help you to get a stronger core. But I will also say this: Your body grows while resting, not while working. Working out is the demolisher of the musc...

Re: Will i over train like this?

What is a lever deadlift/squat? Do you mean some sort of machine, or is it just free weights (barbell)?
Don't worry about your english, we aren't all native speakers so we understand and using the language will get you better at it.
Also, why do you consider adding extra ab days?

Re: judge my form (video)

Nice! The form looks safe. Just for a cue, drive the chest up when in the bottom, and keep the upper back thight, plus drive the elbows under the bar.

One thing I'm thinking is that you are wasting a lot of energy and effort having multiple short breaths between every rep. Is there a reason for this?

Re: Will i over train like this?

Okay,
there is one question needed to know before I give any advice: Why? What's your goal? Why do you consider adding extra ab-days?
And also, I'd like to see how your leg and back workouts look like, because those days usually work the core as well
