Wouldn't it be over training If I go to the limit? I'm still not quite sure of the over training method.

After taking your advice so far it's like this.

Do as much lifts as I can in a set and then take a minute break and than start another set, got it! but how many sets should I finally stop at and call it a day?

It all depends. If you only have access to the two dumbells you just bought and your not working out in a gym or home gym then I'd say push the limit a bit. If you were gonna do everything at a gym then just do a couple of sets or maybe 4 the most somewhat quickly not taking too much time. Remember with working out there's only so much time in a day. That's why a lot of times I'd work out when I'm off from work and nobodys home to bother me or when I'm working the next day I'd do it before I go to sleep at night. Eventually a interferance like going to eat dinner usually tends to be the factor of when to stop for me. You'll defenately feel when the end of the workout is near. I'd say if your not tired do a workout now or when you wake up tommorow.

I also reccomend good posture when your lifting. Try to keep your body as straight as possible by only trying to move your arms to curl. Also each lift should be kind of slow not too fast even if the weight feels light to you.

So... I have a hernia, and I've been getting the whole "You got it from working yourself out excessively" comments from the family and doctors. Is it possible because of heavy lifting and from massive ab exercises (it's basically where my abs are) I have received one?

Speaking of Flex's back. I just did deadlifts for the first time last night with my cousin. Damn I never even knew you could work your back out or what deadlifts were. I've worked out on the bench, and curled many times but never done this before. My back is sore today when I bend it.

Haven't been in this neck of the woods for a while...need some more educated opinions on something.

Last year (as in last Uni year, before summer) i was doing weights and cardio to lose some weight and general fitness.
Nothing too drastic, half hour weights/half hour cardio 3+ times a week.

This year i've moved house to an apartment building that actually has a gym, so i dropped the membership to my old gym (which is now quite a long way off too).
The gym doesn't have any free weights, not even a Smith machine, but i does have some basic weight machines, so i figured it was worth the saved money since i wasn't too big on the free weights anyway.

Lately i've been finding myself being pretty damn bored tbh. I'll go down there and just find myself hitting the rowing machine until i'm beat. I don't know if it's the fact that i'm not paying for it or if it just doesn't inspire me, but i can't get motivated, and after all the holiday stuff and not keeping up with the gym for a while, it's starting to get ugly.

A friend is taking some classes and he suggested an MMA school in the area that does BJJ programms.
He says it's a good workout and pretty damn interesting to boot, so i'm considering it.

He's not a pure gym person so he can't comment on how it compares to a gym workout, which is why i'm here.
Anybody here with any experience on beginner BJJ courses? Is the workout good, how does it compare to a gym workout?
Is it worth it, or should i just try finding motivation for the gym?

I'll probably give it a test run anyway, but i was wondering if anybody had any insights on it.

Cheers.

Yep. I can't bench much but deadlifts are my forte'. Seriously can't stress enough how important they are to overall back development.

^^ Absolutely. Deadlifts are my favorite lift, and they'll tear up more muscle groups at once than any other single compound lift. Squats are definately beneficial, but they're second-place at best.

If you're deadlifting with heavy volume, high intensity, & correct form, then you're going to be hitting your quads, traps, back, etc. Deadlifts are an atomic bomb that should be the centerpiece of any true weightlifter, make no mistake about that.

agreed.

Deads and squats are what I concentrate on above anything else.

My back has issues though, (compressed L1) so I can only dead lift every two weeks, but when I do, I destroy it.

So, you guys been seeing the fatasses come out of the wood works yet? I've been seeing some in the last couple of days at my gym. I'm just glad that the free weights are in the far corner of the gym, and most of them don't venture back that way. Cardio is right inside the front door.

I haven't noticed many new commitments to the gym. I can't say I've been paying much attention but the LA Fitness I am a member at seems to have the same regulars.

Came across a bench press program that is supposed to add 50 lbs to your bench in 7 weeks time. There's two chest workouts a week which is awesome compared to a program like Smolov Jr. or something like that.

So far, I've increased my 1RM to a 3RM and it's been a week and a half. Not trying to promote it and I'm not sure how my results will be at the end of the 7 week protocol, but I'm already impressed with my gains.
