Congrats on your progress!!

I thought your program looked pretty good, though the leg routine looked a little light. Is there any reason you can't do leg press or goblet squat - or are both of...

Cheers for the tip JD. As I have to clean the weight up though, I guess it makes sense to keep the front rack grip. Anyway, I do some other exercises first so to keep the weight relatively light......

Will try front squats,...

Cheers for the replies, I tried out the lower body last night and fried the legs pretty well. I think some load bearing hip hinge exercises would do well - kettlebell/dumbbell swings maybe

No Squat rack for 6-12 months!

Hey all,

Moved to Brazil recently and have only gyms in the neighbourhood with no squat rack. The flip side is they are right next door so super convenient. They do have free weights though. Have...

Ah yes

I'm a bit of a veteran with LB issues, and I did have one period of having LB discomfort in the mornings. I think that I had an underlying issue that was aggravated by a poor mattress. Make sure...

Well for some reason I kinda hate lunges/bulgarian split squats. They completely gas me much more than deads/squats and I feel totally spent for the rest of the workout. I've been working late and...

Do you do exercises you hate?

Interested what your attitude is to this question.

Do you do exercises you hate but you know are good for you? And do you stick with them or cycle them in and out?

Do you, you know just 'man...

Fair point about the momentum. I wonder if doing high steps compensates for that, at least partially. Fair point too about the tension, but then don't all repetitious exercises begin/end tension,...

Lunges, weighted step ups, etc, don't build mass

I see people saying this a lot. But I can't work out why. I mean if you're adding weight/reps and eating, then the muscle grows, right. What am I missing here?

How much do you work? Turning off your phone for a whole weekend and getting out of town is its own therapy. You can do this with airbnb for pretty cheap.
