Many times I feel a better pump from machines than free weights

ibimdoingitwrong

but seriously, there’s this decline chest machine (not exactly a machine, but yea) that hits my chest hard as fuck. feels good man
start a blog and charge for access, you’ll make a killing
despite what all the machine haters will say, most of them offer better isolation, so this is pretty common
isolated workout = better bulk in the area you want it.

freeweights = i want everything biggarrr rawrrrrrr im a faggot

Tightness in latback while doing chest

Recently when I have been doing chest exercises I start to get tightnesspain in my right latinto my back. I’m right handed I don’t know if this is why it only happens on the right. Back day feels fine, but when I’m doing flys and benching it gets pretty painful. Any idea what may be causing this? Or anyone else experience anything similar.
Chances are your chest is too tight and you don’t do enough for you back. Start doing a 2:1 ratio of pulling to pushing movements and really start working on your upper back (bring your rear delts up)

Squats hurt my shoulder

when I get under the bar during squats it seems to tear something in right shoulder and I feel pain in the front of the shoulder for days. I feel pain immediately when I get under the bar. I tried using a really wide grip once and that helped but it’ll crush my hands on the safety bars if I fail my squat

I took a few days off from presses and it still hurts, so I think it’s the squats. my shoulders are pretty weak by the way.

also I notice that it hurts only when moving it in certain directions, but if I flex my shoulder while moving it in the same direction, it won’t hurt at all

patellofemoral pain during back squats but not front squats?

I’m pretty sure this means something is too tight, any ideas ceaze?
Or it means you aren’t squatting correctly. Or weakness. Or injury. Or your femurs are too big or too short. Or or or or.

have you ever had a mobility/flexibility assessment done?
I’m pretty familiar with patellofemoral pain just not in this context. I’ve done self assessments based on magnificent mobility and other instructional videos that are posted up here, but nothing by a professional.

so have you done anything that seems to relieve pain?

Best crosstrainers available?

Whats the new hotness in crosstrainers? I’ve got good running shoes but they actually hurt my knee if I do anything but run in them.

Need a good gym/walking/training shoe.

And I have a fred flintstone-wide foot.
actually adidas just released a new shoe aimed at crossfitters which seems like a hybrid between a weightlifting shoe and a running shoe
asics also has a shoe like this. i don’t know if its out now or coming out soon

Ramadan’s coming up

I’m sure there’s a lot I could read in the other threads but I figure a new thread can’t hurt?

I’m relatively new to lifting. looking at about 8-9 hour window where I can eat or drink water. So…. that should be fun. I think I can get my eating and lifting done before Isha (night prayer), then sleep. If I wake up early enough it might be enough time for a short jog before breakfast and dawn.

As it goes on I might be able to get into the gym in the mornings and the pool in the evening. If I fast some days before, I’ll try and use the mornings and evenings surrounding it to hammer out what’s feasible.
