comment Help me balance my weight training routine
I can't afford one right now. I was wondering if its possible to achieve same results by doing only compound moves (similar to a barbell program) with dumbbells only?

comment hip and oblique muscle imbalance
@BerinLoritsch I have been doing BSS to touch the elevated leg's knee to an 1.5 inch high padding placed on the floor. Thigh looks almost parallel to the floor, not sure exactly. Should the elevated leg knee be touching the floor actually?

comment hip and oblique muscle imbalance
I have been doing Bulgarian split squats since a week or two but it turns out, I have been doing only as much as my weaker side can handle... Will try the other way....

comment Just found a hemorrhoid. Should I lift this friday?
I have also face similar issue. Mine was because I tried to squat more weight than I could handle and my breathe went haywire - I exhaled when squatting down and then gulped in between. I have read somewhere that pushing the air downwards when squatting weights can cause hemorhhoids. I found that strengthening core helped get rid of it but it relapses if I get sedentary and spend too much time sitting. And I so agree by what Berin said about role of breathe in providing core stability..

comment Yoga for muscle imbalances?
Didn't get.. why it wouldn't restore strength balance? Do you mean it wouldn't be good enough if I was already lifting heavy but unequally? If so, I used to do bodyweight exercises and endurance type workout with light weights.

comment lying Leg raises, hand under head
I think I get the exercise the OP is trying to depict - Lying leg raise, with hand behind the ears, head and shoulder off the ground like in crunches (although OP hasn't mentioned this part). I came across this exercise in Jillian Micheals' Yoga Meltdown dvd. This version of lying leg raise makes me feel more on my lower back and abs than one with hands lying on floor near hips.
