You need to think if you've done anything dispite eating lamb that day, because it should not be such a powerfull triger. Maybe you've been under stress or lack of sleep, then a little lamb just was a trigger. My experience was like this. Eating meat just bothers my health, stress is a mighty contributor, lack of sleep, coffee... I have dumped pills and ...

First, lower back exercises shouldn't be done ONLY on rest days. Of course, since you're already hitting your lower back with squats and deadlifts, it kinda makes the comment redundant; I just needed to point that out in case you switch programs. Second, core training can be done daily. Your core muscles are strong enough to recover quickly from applied ...

In my opinion, im training for like 3 years, and are so passion for this industry. from what i used to 3 years back, i cant even do a single pull ups, what i do is just looking at my friend who can do pull ups for reps. Is okay for a beginner that cannot do a single pull ups. Just focusing on lat pull down, make sure you're on a strict form and keep on ...

The primary reason for Crossfitters to use kipping or butterfly pullups in workouts is because they are faster and require less energy, enabling you to complete more rounds and finish faster. Strict PU's are wonderful for building strength. Unless you can do strict PU's, it's best not to attempt kipped ones because you can injure yourself more easily. At ...

The primary function of the pectorals is to adduct the upper arm (Bring in closer to the body), which in function means that an arm pointing out to the side will come in closer to the body or end up pointing forward instead of to the side. If you do your dips leaning forward, so that the upper arm moves away from the body, then when you contract and come ...

It's not really a case of dips hitting chest instead of triceps. Dips hits both. But depending on how you do it, it will be working one more than the other. If you want to engage triceps more, try not going down beyond a 90 degree elbow bend, and make sure you lock your arms out completely on every rep. It's the upper part of the lift that engages triceps ...

It probably maximizes hand strength and works the same as regular push ups(chest, triceps, etc.) But why would you do push ups on your thumbs? You'll end up with 2 broken thumbs and even more serious, 2 broken wrists. Also, not only that, but your traps(upper back) muscles are worked with regular push ups anyway.

I use FitNotes in order to keep all of my exercises in one place. You can write down the exercises and divide them to different muscle groups in order to understand on which days you worked on which muscles.

Sounds good. Honestly, getting started is the hard part. First things first; get yourself a good workout program. There are tons of them out there, but some crowd favorites are Stronglifts and Starting Strength. As for the measurements, it's likely nothing to worry about. When you start out, the body makes the biggest changes. But when it comes to losing ...
