Indesertum-Hey man; if you could it would be helpful to know what equipment you have at your disposal at your gym/home. Though in the long run you will get far greater benefit from going to a gym with a decent range of equipment.

If you have nothing besides dumbbells, bench with them, shoulder press with them,db row with them....whatever; if you have a pullup bar just continue to get better at them (if you dont have one get one, you can find them pretty cheap; or make your own if your into that kinda thing).

 

Btw hyper bench is hypertrophy bench (more volume), while power bench is (less volume, more intensity).

 

EDIT: Learn some basic nutrition as well, will help you out for most people that just means eating a little more. Also would be helpful if you stated your goals-if your into 'runnin'.

 

Any tips for elbow tendinitis? Just been doing the bike tire/voodoo which has helped. Just take some time off pressing?

Have you wrapped your elbow? Not with some 2mm neoprene shit from a pharmacy, I mean a proper heavy wrap. I find that those really help.

Pretty much dumbbells and machines. What about leg work? I was thinking squats with dumbbells

Nah only have a pair of SBD elbow sleeves, might have to borrow some form a friend and see if they help.

 

Indesertum- If you have a leg press machine and/or a ham curl use those combined with dumbbells for goblet squats; even if legpress may not be 'functional' it will do more for your legs than dumbells will so go with that followed by goblet and hamcurls. But ultimately try get some more equipment :)

Not sure what to do at this point as resting apparently does not help. The last physio was pure shit, she only told me to do the cat-camel stretch 10 times a day and it'll solve itself. No way. I know a sports physio but thats gonna take 3-4 weeks. I can lift but it might hinder the really heavy weights. I also get very stiff in the lower back after lifting. I'm gonna start my new routine on monday and see how it goes.

Have anyone gad a similar injury? Its like a aching area in the lower back. Hurts when I arch hard or put the lower back into flexion. Gets worse when I sit down for long, and gets better when I stretch, walk and stay active.

Had a similar injury a while back. In my case, it was actually piriformis. Lots of stretching; hot bath and heat helped too. Got several massages from a physical therapist, which helped as well.

Took about a month to heal.

Crazy squat. I noticed his hand placement is pretty far apart, i've read that it's better to try to have a narrower grip, helps with upper back tightness?

why oh why do people have to write anything using poverty tier software like MS word.

Correct. Just try to hold bar with wide vs narrower. In order to accommodate that narrower grip, your upper back is forced into that natural tightness.

Believe some find a wider grip to help keep a large open chest?

If you have enough upper back muscle you don't really need to keep it as tight to make a shelf. I'm guessing a lot of the bigger lifters don't have the mobility to get there hands that close either.

Accidently uploaded a pic of myself in underwear onto my public fb wall today. Oops.

I've been completely out of the gym for two weeks. Getting back into the groove today. Just got so bummed after I hurt myself that I never went back haha. Been getting a lot better at tracking cals, though, which is good, though my weight isn't really moving at 2300 kcals which is weird. Thinking about going down to 2000 but that'll be tough, might need EC for that.

Weight * 15 - 750 = lose 1.5lbs/week

TK - that's based on you going from your bulking cal intake (+500?) directly to cutting, right?
