    Home Gym Flooring

    Does anyone have recommendations for home gym flooring? I want something that’s hard wearing and can install myself. I don’t drop weights on it (at least not intentionally). It’s to go on a concrete slab of a domestic house.

    Lift heavy, lean out

    LIFT HEAVY, LEAN OUT So, you've got your mass-building program, but what happens when you want to cut? You'll have to switch up the program, right? Absolutely wrong! If the heavy lifting is what built the muscle in the first place, that's what's going to keep it there. If anything, strive to...

    never fear rest from weights

    bazza raises the question of how to know when to back off or keep pushing with your training. I have always taken 10-14 days to recover fully from a flat our session where I run or lift t failure. hence, I try hard to balance volume and intensity. no one can really answer this; I think it...

    Working Calves without weights

    Is it possible to work Calves effectively without weights? I used to wonder if Hill Sprints were a good way to work Calves, wondering if the greater the gradient the more the Soleus is activated. Whereas the flatter the Hill the greater the Gastrocnemius is activated. Bro-science?

    What is proper squat form?

    Hello, I ask this for one reason... internet seems to have a variety of forms which are all classified 'correct'. Most forms I notice are pretty much feet pointing forward (away from you in a straight line) then squat down and up. I then found a powerlifting site that says feet should point...

    Squat as a unit

    Everyone here knows by now that I do not like giving advice on how or how not to squat. Unless that line of power/the center of gravity where the bar is in straight line with the mid of your foot is violated, I'd keep my mouth shut. So what's with this squat as a unit thing? We're always...
