Was wondering if anyone has any experience with certain exercises that they could share. And ive also been told to switch up my routine and do different exercises such as Box jumps, Good Mornings and front squats.
squats dude big time, i dont think i have ever met anyone in my life that i have said wow you legs are 2 big, squats and more squats looks at ayones legs even pro body builders that say they dont squat they have in the past and that is how they got da masssssss

It's not the steroids that makes the champion but it's hard training .. dedication, the diet and sacrifice and genetics that person has.. what makes the champion.

Tried the W1D1(light bench) today, and it's pretty tiring. I'm a little confused with the article, it calls for Mon/Sat which are the bench days. So on a typical M/W/F/Sat split, what would you do for the W/F workouts?

I've been working out consistently about 3-4x/week for about 4 years now and have been eating relatively clean the past 2 years.

I do a lot of research online but I think I've hit a plateau. I'm not getting any stronger (ie. have not been able to increase my bench weight for a few years now, stuck at 205x5 since 2 years ago) and given how often I go, the muscle growth/definition isn't there. Do you think hiring a personal trainer will help? If so, any suggestions?

How often do you switch up your routine and add new movements in? Do you do the same weights every time or do you factor in a "deload" week every once and a while then hit the next week strong.

With four years under your belt, you shouldn't have to pay a guy to tell you exercises you already know. Hook up with some friends and get them to push you.

I switch it up maybe every 2 months. I try to do the same weights until I can push a certain amount of sets x reps then I try to up it. I don't do any deloading, but that could be something I try. I do find that if I take a week off, I lose quite a bit of strength. Its like my body eats away at the muscle immediately if I stop working out for a week.

I do work out alone so its hard to push myself with out a spot. I know I shouldn't blame it on genetics but its demoralizing to see some friends work out half as much yet get more ripped.

like sid said there's alot of garbage trainers that overcharge for the help they're able to exchange in return.

$60/hour to have a stay-at-home mom teach you do ab crunches on the bosu balls is waste of coin. That said, there are also alot of resourceful trainers out there that actually have something to offer. The ones that have truly put in the effort and have been through the trenches, are the ones that you would want to consider investing in. When looking for a trainer, consider their background, experience, extra credentials, and as superficial as it may sound, how they look plays a damn good role in what they preach.

Do your homework and find someone that can help you out enough to get you where you want to be.

If you have any specific questions, send em our way.. there's alot of experienced guys in here that can help. not all of us workout for strength training, bodybuilding, getting a pump etc..

My inzer is tight enough that post-workout, and day after, I have bruising on my hips where the belt digs in. (Still haven't broken in my 13mm)

MFW, goal for this year ain't a big numbers contest anymore after knee injuries and now my shoulder acting up. (DL-345x2. Bench-275x4. Squat-245x4 'pre-injury')

New goal for 2014 = Muscle-ups.

Maybe try putting your whole hands over the bar and not through the thumbs so there's no tension on your wrists. Also, try locking the bar on your back by raising your elbows.

can anyone recommend a good program? looking for something 3-4 days a week that focuses on strength, with some hypertrophy. Looking for mainly doing the big 3, with some other exercises such as rows, press, etc

current 1RM:
Bench: 250
Squat: 315
Deadlift: 390

Why do you need a program? Just do the lifts lol. Listen to your body. Learn what works for you and keep at it.
