So today was my chest and bicep day and I decided to workout my biceps first instead of chest. This was done, so I could max out on my biceps lifts, rather than get pre-exhausted by my chest workouts and maxing out there, then reaching biceps and not being able to max out at all.
I have included a you tube video that I took of me performing my hammer curls with 50 lb dumbbells. I have two more videos on my you tube channel, one with 40s and one with 45s. The 50s was a first attempt 🙂Read More »
This entry is going to be short and sweet, and straight to the point. Many of us have been performing certain exercises, in ways that do not directly target the muscles we’re looking to train. When we do bicep curls, some of us swing the barbell or dumbbell, without giving much resistance to the bicep itself. Did you know, it’s the negative (down movement), that is the most effective part of the bicep curl? Well, now you do. That’s why it’s always highlighted by those who are in the know, to slowly move the weight down, let the muscle completely extend and then slowly bring it back up in controlled movements. One of the best exercise to work on the peak of your bicep and really work it out, is the preacher curls. This gives you an idea, of how certain exercises, truly target the muscle group you want to. But what about the shoulders? Preacher curls is a very basic exercise and no one would deny that movement and the form involved in it, but what about lateral raises? Did you know, most likely you have been performing the lateral raises completely wrong? If you aren’t sure, keep reading to find out the proper way to perform lateral raises.Read More »
One of the major leg exercises out there, is squatting. There are so many variants to the squat; hack squat, front squat, etc. But just for this article, I am going to focus on the regular squat where you have the barbell resting on your shoulder, behind your neck. Now, most people think when you squat, you just bend your knees and get your quads parallel to the floor. Even I, for a long time, thought squatting was like that, but it isn’t. There’s more to squatting, at least with the barbell behind your neck, than just that simple movement. There’s a method to it, and there’s actually form. The reason you have to get to learn how to get the right form on squats, is so that when you start pushing some heavy weights you are stabilizing the weights with the right muscles. We don’t want anyone hurting their lower back, or fucking up their spine because of squatting. So let’s just get to it. To begin a squat, I’ll suggest using the barbell alone, until you can get your form down. Spread your legs shoulder width. Not wider than your shoulders, and not too close together. Make sure that your toes are pointed outward, slightly. Not too much, and not too little. You want to make sure your feet are securely placed on the ground. As I am assuming you’re going to be using a squat rack, get your body under the barbell, lift it securely, move back[…]Read More »
