comment Training for muscle ups
Remember to let your hands rotate on the bar as you reach the top of the pull up. This enables your hands / wrists to be in a good position to enable you to execute the push up part.

comment How do I know if I am using my resistance cord in the right way?
@Freakyuser Just to try and help you out a little more. I lay the resistance band flat on the floor then stand on a section (generally around the middle). Then you squat down and grab hold of the part of the band that's resting between your feet. It doesn't matter if there are different lengths on the outside of your feet. Does that make sense?

comment Do I need to take creatine and L-glutamine on rest days to maintain a load?
@Greg, I would advise you are wasting your money with L-Glutamine. I myself have taken this supplement and note that in my opinion it is a waste of money. read up for yourself here: examine.com/supplements/Glutamine. thanks, James

comment How to properly stretch muscles in neck
Just to add a comment, I like to hold a kettle bell (around 24kg) in each hand by my side. Then slowly tip my head to the right (as if you are trying to touch your right temple on your shoulder) then hold the stretch and then try the other side. The weights help keep your shoulders down and not only stretch your neck muscles but also stretch your shoulders out.

comment Want to lose weight from 90 kg to 75 kg
Might be a good idea to list what foods you're currently eating. That may help us see why you are putting on weight. Keeping a food diary for your own records will also help.

comment Does the body process food and supplements the same way?
Thanks JohnP, your answer makes good sense to me. I do a lot or preparation of meals on Sunday to last me through the week. Good carbs, fats and protein filled meals. So my supplements are just helping me reach my target calorie goals. I'll look into posting on area51. Thanks

comment Which collection of specific exercises can be used to completely substitute Deadlift?
If it was me I would head back to the doctors / chiropractors and find out the root of the problem. There is a possibility it can be corrected then you could work up to doing deadlifts again. Find out what that pain is first. All the best.

comment Stronglifts 5v5 : Where do I go from here?
@MarcoLeblanc I find the hip drive the most difficult part also. That and looking at the floor, my head always creeps up and I end up looking towards the mirror. Agree - practicing form with lighter weight helps immensely. Good luck on Sat!

comment Stronglifts 5v5 : Where do I go from here?
This is good advice. You need to rectify your squat form. The fact you say "perhaps not 100% perfect form" worries me a little (almost like you know your squatting incorrectly). Check out this video it helped me link If anything the squat should strengthen your knee joint. I am going to make a guess that your not squatting parallel. Your hip joint should be just below your knee joint if you look in the mirror at the lowest part of your squat.

comment I am hitting walls with my lifts, how can I progress?
thanks Berin, I'm currently trying to add more muscle mass. I have started adding creatine into my supplement regime, and taking your advice of increasing my reps. I found that I am able to do more reps on 90kg, which is definitely progress for me. thanks

comment I am hitting walls with my lifts, how can I progress?
thanks Dave, I've been logging my food on fitbit this weekend and I think one of my major points is my lack of calories. So I'm going to increase my food and go from there. Thanks for your help.
