Re: Workout/Staying in Shape Thread

I actually do the dumbbell chest press every time when I'm working chest (which will be today when I hit the gym in a short while) and it's one of my favs. It's not so much that the machine makes it easier as much as I've figured that doing it in a straightforward motion would help the muscles grow more 'properly'. But with so many speaking against it, I guess it's better to do it with free weight. I know one thing I'll never do on the Smith machine for sure, that's squats. I did them last time I worked legs and although I finished the 10 rep, 3 set that is my routine, it felt like I was risking injury every time I went up and down.

I've also seen the machine used more often in the gym compared to the free weight so I never got the notion that it's bad/limits your growth.

doing them every other day instead of daily is smarter as well since abs need to repair and recover just like any other muscle and you're not getting the most of out it if you're just tearing your muscle fibers every day without letting them ever recover.
The 5 minute session is actually one I took from youtube. It consists of 9 different exercises (20 repetitions) working around your abs and you take 10-20 second breaks after 3 in a row. I did them last year for a while and lost plenty of belly fat. Now I started doing them daily a few weeks ago and it feels like I'm progressing every day.

I tend to do around 6-10 different exercises for each body part, so I'd assume that is just about enough.

Re: Workout/Staying in Shape Thread

I've never used the smith machine for anything aside from traps. Does it cause you to lock your joints when you do movements because I'm pretty sure that repeatedly locking your joints on every rep would result in you getting arthritis when you're older. never lock your joints on any exercise basically.

it's not about the number of exercises, just making sure you cover each muscle area of your body when you're working out a particular muscle group.

Re: Workout/Staying in Shape Thread

Behind the body straight line (press... Shrugs...) movements are the only time I could see it being advantageous and even then barbell or dumbbell would be better. A proper barbell bench technique has a // bar path, not || that the Smith machine promotes. Use the designated body part machines if you want a muscle pump, just not the shitty smith machine. But as them Hodge twins say, this is just our advice, do whatever the FUCK *camera shakes* you wanna do!

Re: Workout/Staying in Shape Thread

casein protein is the type of protein you take before bed. it's a slow release as it goes through your digestive process allowing your body to metabolize the proteins all night. im sure skyfall can tell you all about what supplements are best to take before bed.


and you should be getting a gram per pound of your entire body weight of protein every day, regardless of whether or not you go to the gym. if you're bulking it's usually 1.5 grams per pound of body weight.

Nothing should really cause you to lock your joints, that would be poor technique on your part if you're locking out on a machine.

The thing i try and drill into people is what i've been taught my whole life which is "function, function, function". In real life you don't move in a straightforward motion. You need those stabilising muscles to be working properly. I've had massive blokes, with built physiques struggle to do scapula exercises with proper technique. They're not even weighted exercises, they just lack the stability required.
