Locking out one's joints and balancing your weight seems like an excellent way to make things momentarily easier on your muscles and momentarily harder, by an equal measure, on your joints. It also, I imagine, might have some stretching effect on the muscles being used that is even greater then simply locking out during a stretch with no weight.

Obviously locking out has it's place in competition and maybe PRs and crossfit.

But should locking out have it's place in everyone's day to day lifts?

I'm currently doing starting strength and I switched around the exercises because this guy was taking forever on the squat rack.
Instead of doing Squats -> Bench -> DL
I went Bench -> Squats -> DL
It's not bad to do it right?
Also, in between Bench and Squats, I had about a 15-20min rest because this guy was taking forever in the squat rack. Shouldn't be a problem right?

What are the benefits of starting on SS rather than PPL ?

>>
>>37372636
SS is more tailored for beginners and you can expect faster, more linear gains.

I'd say since you have already lifted it you should just do SS until you feel you have exhausted noobgains (i.e. you keep stalling and adding weight every workout is not feasible).

As for youtube channels, I reccomend Alan Thrall, Johnny Candito, Scooby, and other guys like that. Try and avoid the meme channels like sixpackshortcuts and athleanx (for the most part). The starting strength youtube channel is nice aswell

You are adding a moment arm by extending your hands outward. There is no secret muscle that is activated by doing this. It's physically impossible for a db fly to do anything that a db bench press can't do. They are an identical motion but for the db fly begging for an injury.

So I'm doing my first LP, but I'm also trying to do 3 sets of 21's during my A workout. I'm not sure how I should treat these, like should I be trying to add a little weight each time? It's so easy to overestimate how much you can do with that particular exercise.

I can't really tell if I'm fucking up here. Lots of people say to add 21's to your workout for a bit of added size, but they never say how many sets to do or how to progress.

>>37373927
Seriously given your weight, height and anal questions the best advice I can give you it

JUST FUCKING LIFT

Do this for a few months and track how you are eating. Once you have actually done something besides overthink the simplest thing there is in life then evaluate your bf, weight, strength and look. Then and only then. Like three months, not "ive been lifting for 10 days, once every 3 days and I dont see any progress" bullshit. Then come back with broad questions that dont deserve their own threads.

>>37372428

If you are above 12% BF and questioning wether or not it's the sodium you ate that has them visible or not, you are staring down the wrong hallway. Yes sodium bloat is factually real, but the perceptible difference is only noticeable once you get rather lean.

>>37372636

athlean-x on youtube is good for raw science-based learning. not the most entertaining guy but he knows his stuff.

>>37373025

if you continue to cut, newb gains might keep coming for another couple months despite caloric deficit. from then on you'll pretty much need to be in a caloric surplus to some degree in order to add lean muscle mass.

>>37373113

lots of caffiene, take in the majority of your carbs in the AM

>>37373449

fuck it and lift while eating tdee for 2 months to recomp, then actually go into small caloric surplus (+300) for 6-8 months. going straight to the bulk is better long term but that's on you.

>>37373832

protien is the only one that matters for the most part in that situation. keep protein at 0.8g per lb of bodyweight so ensure minimal muscle atrophy due to prolonged caloric deficit.
>>
>>37374160
>>37374019
Answer pls
>>
>>37374438

Highly unlikely. What you're describing is called recomping and it's a painfully slow process, much slower and less end results than simply bulking at a moderate caloric surplus (+300ish) until you have good enough muscle mass to justify a cut (usually 6 months at a minimum). And by much slower I mean probably 25% as efficient.

Recomping is usually reserved for people who already have significant muscle mass, need to trim only 5-10 pounds and have 2-3 months to do it properly/slowly. It allows them to not have to full fledge cut in a caloric deficit. Strongly advised against during first year of lifting if you want to make notable progress, it's extremely inefficient.

I know this is pussy shit but still

I'm a skeleton (6'1" 160lbs) and have been lifting for about a month, but I really havent seen any strength gains and no changes in how i look (obviously).

I think this is because I'm not eating enough so I've been counting my calories and i've hit +500 over my tdee for the past 5 days.

How often and how much weight should I be able to add after every workout? (for example if I was doing an upper lower split should I add weight on every upper day, or every week on the same day, and how much?)

lol'd at decomping.

No, Zyzz had bulk/cut cycles like most lifters. He just never bulked above 10%BF, ever. Most people are more willing to hit the 12-14% range when bulking. In his last video before he died he talked about how he was currently bulking and how you could see the loss of definition in his abs.

Not to mention Zyzz was on multiple AAS + DNP, so trying to speculate how that influenced his diet is anyones guess.

1) I've lost a significant amount of weight from my year-long bulk (went 184-160), and I finally have a
visible ab muscles, but I still have a fucking pouch of fat underneath them. How fucking long do I need
to cut to get rid of this god damn love handle?

2) Is there an alternative to bulk-cut cycles in terms of building muscle efficiently? I've heard
some talk on this board of building muscle without doing such a cycle. Anyone have an alternative (inb4 lose gains)?

3) Lastly, I've talked to a few bros who are "intermittent bulking," and they say it's pretty
legit. I personally have done an intermittent fast so far and am very happy with it. Is int bulking
a way to build muscle effectively without putting on as much fat?

Low bar squatting anything over 3 plates kills my right shoulder for a couple of days after; can't lift hand past shoulder height, can't sleep on that side. Heard thumbless grip can cause this but thumbed grip kills my wrists. Also I have inflammatory arthritis, its probably that huh.
>>
>>37375920
That sounds real fuckin' bad m8. Not an expert on arthritis, but you should probably drop the weight and work up to it again slowly. Start stretching before you lift heavy if you're not already doing so. Does it feel like a tendon?
>>
>>37375891

1) That fat is fucked up stubborn. No telling how long it'll take.

2) Yeah slow bulking. Being very, very slightly above maintenance.

3) It's very legit but more like a lifestyle choice since muscle gain is relatively slow.

How high a bodyfat should you bulk up to? Say, from 10% body fat. I've no idea how long to bulk for. How does everyone decide. I was once told to bulk to 15% then cut to 10% and repeat. Is this the way?

I'll go with the, "this question isn't even on anyone's radar" therefore weightlifting never causes undue wear and tear on joints.

The only benefits of locking out are to reduce muscle strain when competing. There are no health benefits, only excess wear and tear.

>>37375983
So it is more efficient than a regular bulk- clean or otherwise? I can see the reasoning behind it. Have you done it yourself?

>>
>>37375994
It depends how long you're going to bulk and how you'll bulk rather than the bf end goal.
If you're clean bulking like +300-500 then yes. But if you're going to dirty bulk then just go with 18% if you're comfortable with getting a little thick.
Tbh senpai you're probably at at least 12-15% if you're asking questions about bulking.

After recently cutting and reaching a body fat percentage I'm happy with, I have slowly increased calories to a maintenance of 2700. I consider this accurate for a 5' 10" 24yo male, 175 lbs, moderately active with heavy lifting 3x week, frequent hiking and dancing.

However, even a couple of weeks into maintaining I feel like shit. Depleted, weaker lifts, aching, mentally drained, no desire to fug, constantly thinking about food. How would /fit/ rememdy this?

I have considered either a small increase in calories or a short break/deload from lifting.

Bonus question: are there any benefits to calorie cycling while maintaining as opposed to consistently eating maintenance all week?

Thanks lads.

>>37376716
There are studies to say that if you eat adequate protein (at least 1g per lb LBM) that you can build muscle in a deficit. However, its a very slow process.

How do I improve my heart and general health?

I'm a 61kg 172cm skeleton. Been having heart "problems" all my life. Mainly tachycardia(BPM up to 180 while just walking around and 120 while sitting. Could last for weeks) and palpitations. Did a complete and full heart test over the last week. Blood tests full spectrum, heart tests(stress test, ECG, echo etc.) thyroid tests etc. Everything came back clean, but the doctors stressed just how much I need to work out. They didn't give me any advice on how to do it, besides just being more active.

Could someone recommend a good starting point to slowly build up my hearts strength? I don't want to feel faint anymore and have this stupid high heart rate. But I'm constantly afraid of over doing it.

Right now I don't care about getting big, getting muscles or anything. Just want to finally feel healthy.

You are guaranteed to lose muscle mass if you are cutting over 0.5kg a week. I'd probably advise you to not worry about it and get the weight lost as a quickly as possible though.

>>37378280

Is this a guarantee if you're hella fat?

I lost about 5kg in 2 months time, 3kg fat and 2kg muscle. Yeh I know, I just want to get to a baseline asap so I can start bulking, it just sucks seeing 80kg of muscle mass fading away. Thanks man

>>37373644

>>
>>37378291
Yes, although the extent of lean mass loss is disputed and I haven't seen many studies.

My completely non scientific inkling would be that you lose less lean mass proportionally than a skinnier person. You'll be losing much more bf% than lean mass % anyway. Work as hard as you can to drop your bf% to 15-20% and then think about building muscle.
>>
>>37373644
>>37378354

Do whatever you want. As a beginner you can't really do anything wrong as long as you are increasing volume weekly and have decent form.

The reason you can't do pendlay rows is probably due to tight hamstrings pulling your hips into a less than comfortable position, so probably best to work on that anyway.

Exactly how long were you out of it and where was your strength at before you stopped lifting?

My baseless opinion is that you should take maybe 20% off of the bar and slowly build back until you stop getting sore after every workout. Then pick up where you left off.

/fit/ I need some routine help,

I'm living in Korea for the next 3 months and my apartment gym has no power rack. Additionally, I'm not allowed to do deadlifts because the stupid fucks in management bought metal plates that clang together, which got me yelled at in gookinese.

All I have to work with are:
Seated leg curl
Lat pulldown
Dumbbells <60lbs
China quality bench rack
China quality barbell (not even sure if 20kg)
China quality plates (20kg, 15kg, 10kg, 5kg, 3kg, 2.5kg only 1 each)

What are the best exercises I can do with this equipment?

Is it normal if I don't ever feel the 'burn' in any muscle group when doing deadlifts?

When squatting, I can feel my quads heat up, and glutes in a smaller way.
When benching, I feel my pecs.
When doing OHP, I feel my shoulders.

But when deadlifting I don't feel any muscle bearing the load.
I just feel increasingly tired all over with every rep, but it's like no particular muscle is performing the exercise and more like the bar is magically sapping my strength from my whole body

Not ideal, since you are only hitting the other muscle groups 1 time per week. Why not do a push/pull upper/lower or similar split going 4 times per week and add in an extra arm day instead? (so going 5 times).

Example
A: Push (including triceps)
B: Pull (including biceps)
C: Arms

ABxABCx
>>
>>37379185
you didn't provide enough info to accurately answer that

it depends entirely on the state of your current diet

Some people eat a lot of sugar and processed shit

yeah, deadlifts distribute the load over a lot of different muscles around your body

Personally, I do tend to feel it in my hamstrings and my lower back a bit tho

But long as your form is good, I guess you are fine.
>>
>>37379099
I guess this depends on where you are from, but personally, with me being European and all, I'd pick basketball.

>>37378867
depends on how much weight you are using
>>
Ok I know this is a dumb question but how much does 1pl8 weigh in kg? I've seen people using it when talking about lifting but I don't really know how much it actually weighs.
>>
>>37379211
eh. Hitting each muscle group only once a week is suboptimal (granted, you can still make gains; but it will be less than with a routine with a higher frequency).

But if you don't want to up your frequency, I guess there is nothing to be objected to your routine. If you want your arms to grow, you are gonna have to up the volume. So having an extra day for them seems to make sense.

Also, you did a good job with rest periods etc.

kek

1 pl8 is 20 kg

When talking about OHPing 1pl8, you are referring to 2 20kg plates + the bar (20 kg); so 60 kg total.
>>
>>37379280
Check this out:

Empty bar = ~ 20 KG
One 20 KG plate = 20 KG

You take the bar, add 1 - 1 plate on each side = 60 KG

Do not let anyone troll you saying the bar doesn't count. You are lifting that shit as well. Godspeed anon.

keep in mind that in many smaller college gyms they have smaller bars that only whey like 10kg.

Hi /fit/

I've read that protein intake should be 1g per pound of lean body mass. I am currently still eating 1g per pound of bodyweight.

Will replace the excess protein with carbs help my gains ? Does it hurt me at all to be overconsuming protein/underconsuming another macro ?
>>
>>37379871
It's probably better to eat more protein since you then reduce the risk of under recovery due to nutrition

>>37374019
You're years away from any semblance of abs. You need mass on your core and you need to lose the fat. Whatever order you so it in, it will take time and dedication you don't have.

Stop doing barbell curls (neither with regular nor EZ bar). Try doing only hammer curls and heavy rows/pullups. Should be enough for your biceps to grow if you do progressive overload.

Sounds like forearm splints. Can be caused by vit D deficiency. I swapped barbell curls with EZ curl bars for a few weeks and worked through the pain. Switched back to barbell curls recently and the pain is much less. Try and squeeze the bar as hard as possible while you are curling.

According to sticky everything that matters in nutrition are macros. Let's say I should be hitting 2000kcal daily, does that mean that it doesn't matter how it's spread out, as long as I average that? So for example if I eat 3000kcal on both Saturday and Sunday, all is good as long as I do 1600kcal for the next five days?

Your body doesn't really work on a day to day basis, so yes

>>
>>37381368
Forearm pain is common doing barbell curls. What often happens is that people try to twist their wrists during the exercise without being aware of it. Basically they try to turn the exercise into a hammer curl because they're stronger in this position. And twisting your wrists like this while they're still locked in place is going to hurt.
If this is you, I'm guessing your forearms have gotten irritated to the point that even dumbbell curls and other things hurt now.

Of course it could also be a million other things. You don't provide a lot of details.

You shouldn't have arm days, they are inefficient to include in a routine because they take focus away from compounds and force you to reduce frequency on the bigger muscle groups that would include 'arms' on their training days anyways

I bought spinach, romaine lettuce, asparagus, avocado, goat cheese, blue cheese, feta, mozzarella, Greek yogurt, chicken breast, whole milk, almond milk, and oils (extra virgin olive and coconut).

I've never actually done a keto diet before and I just bought that stuff to start off with but any suggestions would be very much appreciated. Does it work, what should I be eating, what other things I could buy etc. The goal is just to drop lbs.

You're a special kind of stupid, aren't you? Let me fucking spell it out for you.

The routine below is a full-body routine:
Dumbbell side lateral raises 7x4
Leg extensions 10x1
Wide grip pull-down 2x50

The routine below here is ALSO a full-body routine:
Power snatch 8x2
Incline close-grip bench press /w chains 4x10
Weighted ring pull-up 4x10
Breathing back squat 1x20

As you can see (HOPEFULLY) those two fullbody routines are completely different. And the same goes for a split. So nobody can tell you whether a "full-body" routine is better than a "split", because nobody actually knows what the fuck you're talking about.

Be way more specific if you want an answer.

So that is alternating, correct? I just wondered why they did not specify this as they did when it comes to the BP/OHP.

FOR BENCH PRESS should my grip be where my elbows bottom out at 90º or should it be slightly wider than shoulders.

I have long-ass arms.
>>
>>37381808
Yes, alternating. To be fair, a whole book exists on this program so trying to sum it all up in a single image can easily cause a little confusion.

>>37381838
Your forearms should be vertical in the bottom of the press, when viewed by someone standing at your feet. That means that your grip width is going to determine how low or high on your chest you're going to touch with the barbell, or the other way around.

What's a good 3 day routine? I'm bored with being in here 5 days a week. The gains are so little and hard after nearly 3 years, I just want to maintain.
>>
>>37381838
>how do I bench?
Watch some fucking videos on the topic. Reading SS helps a lot too
Your grip should definitely be wider then shoulder width
You want to have vertical forearms in the bottom half of the movement

>>37381805
If you're weak off the chest, a chest accessory can help
If you're weak at lockout, a tricep accessory can help
Stronger back = stronger bench too

>>37381757
The text in the pic indicates that you choose one, but you could alternate if you want

I would go with this:
A
Squat
Bench
Row
Dip
Curl

B
Deadlift
Press
Chinup
Lateral raise
Face pull

AxBxAxx BxAxBxx

>>37381555
Whichever one balances frequency, intensity and volume the best for your current training level and provides fastest progression
For a beginner, it is very likely a full body linear progression program

>>37381531
Pick a weight so that you KNOW you can progress linearly for the first 2 weeks+
SS advises you do the weight at which your bar speed slows (in addition the the above)

>>37378924
Keep a neutral spine when lifting, this includes your neck
You should never be wrenching your head upwards, if anything, your chin should be slightly tucked down (especially when arms are overhead)

For me, this typically describes a pinched nerve and typically occurs when I do not mind my head positioning during pullups

It's obviously either poor form or odd resting position though

>>37378867
It depends, do you know what a belt is used for? Could this benefit you?

>>37378874

Anything that is comfortable and allows you to move around

>>37378507

Stretch hip flexors and quads, strengthen glutes

>>37377757
Fuck the guy in the ass first

>>37377752
Start walking
Then start jogging
Then start running
See Couch 2 5k

Your doctors should recommend what type of exercise is suitable
If lifting, read the fucking sticky

>>37374790
Fucking terrible
>>
>>37381881
One more question; you said that I should alternate the rows and chinups in a timespan of three workouts (alternating thrice). However, the routine suggests that you only do these pulls on the 1st and 3rd workout.
>>
>>37382042
it could be a mental thing. It makes sense that now that you're working out and trying to get strong that you want to feed the growth, so maybe your head is making excuses. It could actually be happening also.

Thanks.

I was 185 lbs 14% BF with Squat 5x5 at 275, Bench 5x5 at 235, Deadlift 1x5 at 365. I was out of it for about 5 months.

Thanks for the opinion though, it's a good starting point.

>>37382307
To be a little more precise:
Now I have squat 5x5 225, deadlift 1x5 285, bench 1x5 185 (but my form is shit now on bench because of muscle imbalance)
Now weight 185 15% BF

A question regarding bodyweight side-to-side pushups:

How much change in your body should you expect after 4 months of serious lifting?
I've gone from 145 lbs to 155 (I'm a manlet) and maybe my lats and delts popped out a bit but that's about it. Also my love handles and belly became fatter.
I still look like I have never touched weight in my life. I know guys who definitely look like they lift after a year of brosplit or even calistenics. After 1/3 of year of doing PPL I Iook nothing like even 10% of the progress they made.

Started first bulk at 5'8 123lbs, gained ~1lb a month. A little less than a year later, I'm up to 137 and I've put on some nice muscle but I've also put on some fat.

Is this a good enough gain for a first bulk? I really want to get rid of this fat, but I know 137 is small. Should I just do a 5-6lb cut and then start another bulk in the winter?
>>

>>37382709

look in the mirror to find your answer. Look at your lifts to help you decide.
>I really want to get rid of this fat, but I know 137 is small. Should I just do a 5-6lb cut and then start another bulk in the winter?
no, this is stupid. Your body doesn't just switch between a bulk and cut because you decided to. It takes time to go from one to another. Go by body fat percentage. If you're still under 20% body fat, I would keep bulking. If you're above 20%, cut down to 12ish% and then start bulk again.

What's your opinion on the following foods ?

Schnitzel ?

Pizza ?

Cheese ?

Could you please elaborate I'm trying to put my diet together
>>
>>37382799
I wasn't going to jump from bulking to cutting. I plan on reverse bulking into a month maintenance, and then slowly lowering calories.

I'm definitely below 20%, I can still see upper abs fine, but bottom abs are gone and slightly giggle when I walk which is awkward as fucking looking.

that's just wasting time. Suffer a gut for a bit and hit your lift goals.

either way, you're either going to have slow as fuck gains and no gut, or steady gains and a slight gut. Pick your poison.
>>
>>37382709
137 lbs at 5'8" is still really low (unless you're a girl). Bulk. You have to sacrifice your visible "abs" for some time if you want to get size. No way around it.

A question regarding symmetricstrength

"enter your most difficult set that you have completed recently."

I have recently performed three sets of Chin Ups with added weight. I completed the first two sets of 5 reps but only got 3 reps for the last one.
How much reps should I enter here then? I guess the last one was the most difficult one so should I put 3 reps instead of 5?
>>
>>37383026
lmao no. It's for peope who don't know their 1 rep max. So yours would probably be 7 or 8. Try doing 1 set with as many pull ups as possible and enter that

Wannabe macho manlet in need of advice from you Chads out there. Used to wrestle back in high school and they always had us on a push/pull/legs routine whenever it would come time to hit the weight room. Graduated 3 years ago and came back to excercising about 2 months ago following the same routine, but came to this board and became aware of the SS programs and the main lifts that compose them. Anyway, should I switch from the PPL routine to a SS even though I've already been with it for 2 months or just continue on? I'm seeing results in my lifts and appearance but want to know if should go back to the basics.

I've been lifting for three weeks now doing SS and I've got an almost constant lower back soreness.

If you think you can benefit and would like to make quick linear progress, sure.
Read the book and then decide if it's for you

As long as you want
You can progress time from a starting point using some or varying intensities

Two questions:

1. Are squats amd Deadlifts alone enough for aesthetic legs? (Plus perfect diet)

2. I read mixed things. Is cardio REALLY necessary to burn fat and get ripped. Or is it just another way to reach a deficit if you happen to like eating more?

Read the book
Then follow the advice in the book and POST FORM CHECKS

I'm training TKD here (beginner) alongside lifting. Is it a waste of time to do 10-20 minutes cycling as a warm up? Or is that time and energy that could be expended into doing MA practice?
>>
>>37383331
Yeah, pretty much. You can try and grow your calves too. If you hit high squat/dead numbers and still don't have size, then you can add things like lunges and leg press to help out. But most people tend to build big balanced legs from heavy squats and deads

Cardio is not absolutely necessary, but a worthwhile investment for endurance and health, just like for someone who is sedentary

Im more or less a noob and doing SS at the moment. Now whenever i do benchpress i really struggle with the first two sets, shaking throughout, barely making it, but usually can finish the last set quite easily.

I warm up by doing 10 reps with just the bar, then 5reps with 50% 3 reps with ~80% and 2 reps with 90%.

In short: I do FBW that incorporates heavy db bench press and OHP in one session. Should I start doing them alternatively?

>>37383531
Yeah I'm stretching on a regular basis. After stretching the soreness is relieved which might mean that not enough flexibility is the problem.
Honestly I can't even reach my toes standing with legs locked, but I'm seeing improvement everyday which is nice.

>>37383357
it's worth it as a warm up.

>>37383481
>That's really pathetic for 4 months progress

It probably is, but still I gained 10 lbs so I was eating enough I guess (enough protein too, I was paying attention to it). I was trying to linearly progress every workout but I wasn't able to several times. Maybe I'm just low test?

>>37383642
It is actually no response at all, dummy.
>>
>>37383579
Google 'front rack position'
The bar is supposed to rest on the meat of your front delts with your elbows high

You should've known this before even going near any type of clean or front squat

>>37383602
If you find progress is limited and want to change it up, then sure.

You could also post the routine and potential changes

>>37383609
Gaining weight is not necessarily progress, you could just be getting fat with little muscle. Especially if you can barely squat/bench 1 plate after 4 months

>>37383566
Post form checks
Are you resting properly? You shouldn't even dive in immediately for your first set if you are doing 90% for warmup
>>
>>37383566
It's called warming up. Your first few sets are harder than your middle few. This is normal. Just make sure you max out at more weight each time and you'll be fine.
>>
>>37383691
I have. I don't post anything without googling the fuck out of it first. My arms literally need to be above parallel before I get a place I can rest the bar, and once my arms are that high my hands reach behind my head.
>>
>Gaining weight is not necessarily progress, you could just be getting fat with little muscle. Especially if you can barely squat/bench 1 plate after 4 months

Forgot to mention that I had 2 two week breaks because of snowboarding trips, so it was more like 3 months. Other than that, I have no idea what else I could have done.
Calorie and protein intake was good, lifting 4 times a week mainly with compounds for 5 reps, trying to increase weight every workout, got average 7 hours of sleep... I didn't even drink alcohol.
>>
>>37382135
Thanks!
>>
>>37383691
I dont know what form checks are. Im not resting that much, what do you mean with: dont dive in immediatly? Dive into what?

>>37383692
So in the case that i dont manage to do 5 reps in my first set should i still try the other sets and increase weight if i manage to do more than five on my last set?
>>
>>37383987
Yeah. Pick a set. Keep moving the weight up each time for that set. Add weight to other sets when you are strong enough to. So long as you keep increasing volume you're fine. You might eventually need to add an extra warmup set to fill the gap between just the bar and 50%.

pls explain

i've been stuck at 160x5 bench for super long

today i did 9 reps with one in the tank(no spot)

only difference is i started doing power cleans 1.5 weeks ago

would that have helped?
>>
Every. Single. Time. I start up bench press, I get this cracking in my shoulder once I hit a challenging weight, and then I end up with a shoulder issue and have to stop upper body for usually a month before I recover slightly. Never have fully recovered.

This has happened 3 times now, I have never made progress because of this. I've had some chad-bros at my gym help me with form, so I know it's not that...

What the hell? Will I ever bench again?
>>
>>37384536
do you pull your shoulder back?

how many reps?
>>
>>37384536
Every problem I had with bench press I solved it doing shoulder dislocations (the mobility exercise not actually dislocating my shoulders).
>>
>>37375966
I don't know how to describe it other than dull throbbing, feels like it could be rotator cuff.

Lateral and front raises help work it out but other than that I just pop Excedrin before bed,

I've reset my squat 3 times and each time I can get a little higher before it kicks in so I guess I could just double the time that I take to progress squats and not have to reset so much.
