Ok so I've watched about a billion Youtube videos now over the last year during Covid on everything to do with body building you name it.
I've tried a few different training styles and ideas now related to these different ways of training but still want to know so much more.
I know the principle of overload when applied to compound exercises involving the large muscle groups but does it still apply to the same extent for isolation exercises? I would have thought that there must be a limit to how much small muscles can grow so overload becomes ineffective after...
I'm very weak. I work up a sweat and get fatigued using machines on the lowest weight available.
I've been living a sedentary life for a lttle over a decade. However, I'm not sure if that accounts for how weak I am/feel. Maybe I've got something wrong medically, but nothing has shown up in...

So bit of background I definitely have a bit of a core weakness that's actually caused an anterior pelvic tilt IMO although I'm not a physio, but it seems like my lower back and hip flexors take on way more of the load in day to day life to make up for my core. Before I started lifting when I...
I’m chasing a power cage or even squat rack preferably commercial quality but also don’t have a huge budget. And Olympic bars. I think I may be dreaming on the commercial quality but yeah, something not completely garbage..
To be honest $500-700 is the budget
Haven’t lifted in...

However muscular endurance, the amount of volume you can do within a...
don't know what to do any more my upper back is so fucked up with my thoracic nerve. no muscle has ever grown there no matter what exercise and can't really do any upper body exercises.
my lower body is overgrown and holds all the fat.
Due to popular belief these to exercises are not the same and one is a bastardised form of the other due to people being impatient and trying to add weight before perfecting form.
the SLDL is an example of an exercise where you must start light as opposed the the Ukrainian version.
due to the...
Been going to the gym on and off for approximately 10 years on and off while juggling footy/family.
I have put on a fair bit of weight and decided to focus on weight training, 5 days a week, workout would consists of the following:
I busted my back on my deadlift session last week, its not bad, but I wont be deadlifting for 2-3 weeks.
I won't be squatting for a week or so either.
Back injuries shouldn't be, but generally are, apart of powerlifting. What you do next, with your body and mind, will determine your return...
