FUUUUCK, busted my finger balling yesterday, ended up with a mallet finger (google it).

Basically it's gotta be splinted 24/7 for 6 weeks straight to heal properly.

Went to the gym today, any push movement with a bar or machine is ok, but free-weights are a bitch. Will probably have to get straps to continue to do deads and pulls.

If your weights or reps aren't going up (assuming you haven't been lifting for 5 years) the answer is always the same: EAT MOAR (also this assumes your form is good, so do post a video if you can)

Yeah post a video so we can see how the form is. Training shoulders is one of the harder muscle groups to train because they are a bit harder to isolate, so it will take some time for the weight to go up. But remember, form>weight always.

Personally I like to work with dumbbells for any type of upper body press because i get to work on balance and my stabilizers as well.

One other thing to note is, machines are also great to throw into your routine because when compared to lifting freeweights, you wont have to worry about balance issues. It allows you to force out those extra reps to failure and really pushes your muscles to the limit. Id even go for 14 reps for machines.

I feel you man, im the same. I can rep out 245 bench no problem, but my deadlift is still weak as fuck. Can only do 15 pullups bodyweight max now too.

15 bw pull ups is not insignificant. If they are strict from a dead hang, and chin over the bar

DB shoulder press should always be done with palms-facing grip. Go down until the dumbell hits the edges of your shoulders.

What type of squats are you referring to?

quarter squats? no I don't think they hurt your knees. Opposite in fact, considering the weight. It's more of a pure strength building assistance than anything else, though I use it during my deload weeks too

lol yo, if you think quarter squats are bad for your knees, try doing some hack squats, those would fuck up your knee even more...

I gave up doing em awhile ago cus I could never find the right position to place my feet so that I don't feel a ton of pressure on my knees.. Noone in my gym ever touches the hack squat machine loool

LOLOL... of course its good. You wrote it! hahaha good job skinnyboy! i have to say i agree with most of the content. Def agree with putting creatine mono first. I personally know someone that did their PhD on creatine for 5 years in the midst of many well-documented studies of it..

I'm about 1.5 months into 5x5 and I'm seeing great gains already.

Is it just me or is it harder to get bench press & OH press numbers up than squats and DL?

Also, noob question here, difference between mixed grip & normal overhand while doing pulls&lifts?

^ definitely. I plateaued at OHP first and then bench.

Happy that I am seeing gains despite weighing a lot less. Weigh 175lbs and squat 255 3x5 and DL 295 1x5. Will try for 315 1x5 DL next time.

I have a question for the long time lifters. When do you hit your prime in regards to strength and size? I've heard you're in your peak shape from 25-35, give or take a few years.
