    I think it can definitely engage different muscles, but then it defeats the objective of the lift you're doing surely? I think there's something to be said for half and quarter reps with strict form. Like say lat raises for example, rather than compromise form for an extra rep, keep form...

    Yeah I notice with lifts progressing if I compromise form a little bit and move up to soon I end up having to regress the lift again. It happened most with my front squats, but that was in part due to the set up its why I had to bin it off for a more set up friendly exercise. I reckon...

    Yes I was starting to cheat. I was tempted to increase the weight but when I stripped back my form to isolate the muscles I realised increasing would be a nightmare. I've never tried pausing at the top, will give that a go next week. I'm hoping the drop sets help build the muscle somewhat.

    Smashed my workout today. Progressed on almost every lift which means I've not used up all my newbie gains yet. RDL 3x12@71kh Upright Row 3x12@36kg 21's 3x12@36kg EZ Pullover 3x8@36kg Reverse Fly 3x10@12.5kg Lats DxS @10kg - 1kg Pressups I did 28 in a row and then thought my minute timer ran...

    Skipping was the way I used to do indoor exercise when I first started getting healthy. 10 mile run, 48 minute skip (used to watch Bruno vs McCall every time and skip during the rounds)

    Yeah so every time your 75% lift increases, divide by 0.75 and it shows your new estimated 1rm

    I assumed that's what you meant when talking about percentage of 1rm, my bad. I agree though should always be seeking to progress.

    Studies show in terms of hypertrophy rep range doesn't have an impact as long as you're working as hard as you can. Things like time under tension is important as well.

    I agree with this, when weight lighter there's more room. To experiment with technique whilst still being in complete control. Same with failure, failing at a lower weight often won't be a disaster cos you can still have some degree of control over the situation. But when you're approaching your...

    I'm the same tbh, I use it as a measure of progress but that's it really. I care much more about aesthetics.

    Personal training / advice

    Yeah I'm sure I read somewhere that in terms of hypertrophy it doesn't actually matter what your rep range is as long as your challenging yourself weight wise. However in terms of strength you'll always have a better 1rm if you lift higher weights for lower reps. I agree though that...

    If you've got room splash out and get a decent solid one. I have a portable squat rack and it isn't fit for squatting heavy weights as any kind of movement and it gets shaky as fuck. It's alright upto about 70kg but beyond that it's no good. However it's solid enough to bench a heavy...

    All depends on what your goal is really. I don't run any more but I know I could finish 10k easily I'd just have to place myself. But I don't train to be a runner so I'm cool with that
