    Has to be the bench press since I don't really feel chest growing compared to dips.

      Can't feel my chest during dips at all, it's all just shoulder discomfort plus triceps burn

      Pushups. I'm built like an ape (long torso, long arms with an especially long humerus, short legs) so they fatigue the shit out of me and I need to try way harder at them than most exercises

        Asterisk means there's a significant difference right? So basically there's no difference between front squats and back squats besides slightly greater activation of one of the quadriceps muscles.

          bro what? The Rectus Femoris and Vastus Lateralis still outperform the back squat? The quads consist of the lateral, medial and intermedial vastus and the rectus femoris on top of them. Quadriceps = 4 heads.

              My brother in Christ, the blue one is the front squat and it's higher in every way in terms of quads.

                My guy, the asterisk on the graph means that the only significant difference in muscle activation between the two exercises is with vastus medialis. Learn to read data.

                No significant difference, that's what I'm saying. These bar graph charts can be misleading. Just because there appears to be a difference doesn't mean that the difference is statistically significant. The asterisk shows that there is only a significant difference in the activation of one of the four heads of the quadriceps femoris between the two exercises.

      Just keep practising.
      I used to not get good engagement on bench but since fixing my form and focusing on the mind muscle connection, my chest really burns and Im seeing good gainz.
      I think my other muscles were compensating.

      They're best for working **lower pecs and triceps** from what I've heard from gym trainers.

        yes dips are based and you can go pretty heavy with them for lots of stimulus and work your stabilizers.

      squeeze your back together, arch your lower back a little, and bring the bar just a little below your titties. Then focus on squeezing your elbows together from that position and you will feel it in your chest and the bar will naturally rise. Just learned this the other day and it's helped me immensely, hope it works for you anon

      I think i am the same. Not that extreme but def got a longer torso and shorter legs. Idk about arm length it might be longer? Is this body type good or bad? Some say its good for fighting because of low center of gravity or some shit? I find push ups weighted to be extremely taxing lift in general.

      I can do weighted push ups with 40kg added, at least 5 reps, probably 7 at max. I can barely do 20 push ups wither. Its an endurance vs strength thing, if i where to train push ups for reps i think my sets would shoot up pretty quickly.

    I can't do these for the life of me

    I'm not fat, I can do chinups just fine, but I feel like I'm doing these completely wrong or something because I just stall out in the very beginning after like one rep.

    So I guess I hate these the most.

    Whenever I open my bag of Mcdonalds branded Goyslop nuggets from the drive through line I curl the Goyslop Nuggets individually while in the line at the drive through I curl the goyslop nuggets. This is an unwelcome addition to my routine but one I do (curling Goyslop) regardless to develop my LOOKSMAXX by Goslopmaxxing even though it is not liked by Me. If I keep doing this maybe a woman will love me they never do god I hate women. WAGMI! No I'm not not WAGMI because of the government (which attempts to ruin our GAINZMAXXING).

    Lying leg hamstring curl machine is the most retarded fucking thing in the gym by far. Can't figure out how to set up the machine, no matter how I set it up it always feels wrong and puts pressure on the knees. Also you are leaning hunched over face down pointed at the floor which just isn't the position I want to be in for exercise. Just do glute ham raises or rdl. I'm never doing this fucked exercise ever again.

    Long distance running.

    Beats the fuck out of my joints and tendons as well as triggers every single one of my old long term injuries.
    Doing 5 miles is enough to fuck me up for a whole week at best. Longer if my knee or hip snap another tendon. I can't really afford to lose another one.

    I am also just not convinced it is all that useful or good of a exercise.
    I prefer a brisk walk, doing sprints, or something low impact like riding my bike.
    Hell, I feel less banged up doing hard contact sparing for 5 rounds.

      Long distance running is a meme and actually bad for you, sure u can brag that u can run a full marathon but compare marathon olympians to sprint ones. Any type of extreme endurance based stress to your muscles is more harmful than beneficial, youre better off sticking to sprints

      Its a duration and tolerance thing. If you want to be able to run longer then you first have to cut down your on your running time/milage and run shorter and allow your body to get more conditioned for running. If you don't run often and then go on a 5mile run then you are pretty much maxing out on the running, its like if someone where to squat rarely and they go in the gym for a intense squatting session and they just squat and squat even though their knees and back start hurting they just keep squatting. How wise is that? Its not the running it self that is bad, its that you are overdoing it. A 5mile jog fucks me up too, but 2-3 years ago even just running 30 minutes fucked me up, now i can go for 1:45 min before i get fucked up. And yes its always the knees and hips that limits the amount i can run. If i stop right before i start getting discomfort and pain by running then i can run more during the week on several different workouts. But i take a long run and push it then my feet need a weak at least, just like you. And i been out regularly for 2 weeks stretches during my running career because i keep pushing it to much. But my tolerance have gone up every single year and i can run for longer before i get fucked up. It is VERY RARELY the activity it self that fucks people up, its how people do them that fucks them up.

      And to add to this, i could prescribe a hill sprinting program or a biking program that would you up too just like long distance running.
