      He's is the short form of 'he is' or 'he has'.
      For example: "Don't be scared - he's very friendly."

      His is a possessive pronoun, it is used to show something belonging to or connected with a man, boy or male animal that has just been mentioned.
      For example: "Mark just phoned to say he'd left his coat behind."

    >pretty much anything on rings is amazing for hypertrophy, especially pushups and dips

    Why? Shouldn't we aim for exercises with as much stability as possible to push the target muscle to controlled failure?
    I'm not convinced ring exercises are bad for hypertrophy but I don't understand how they're good. I've done ring dips in the past (lockdown) & I appreciate how the rings made just bodyweight enough weight for me, but outside of that purpose, wouldn't you want stability?

      Over time you gain the ability to control the rings extremely well, better than even dumbbells in my opinion because the rings are very light, you just need the rotator cuff strength to stabilize them well enough. The rings allow you to get a ridiculous stretch on your pecs that you can't really get anywhere else unless you have a cambered bar or a good machine chest press, and you can also fully adduct the humerus on ring pushups unlike normal ones. Though you can do deficit pushups and deep parallel bar dips I find that deep ring pushups and dips tend to feel much better on the joints due to the fact that they accomodate for your build, and for whatever reason even ignoring the joint stuff there's something about the rings that just hits different. I get insane pumps even with low reps and much greater DOMS than the fixed counterparts, and I end up being much weaker on the next press in my workout presumably due to my chest experiencing greater fatigue.

      Anyway, I believe that rings are an investment. They won't be that good for hypertrophy initially because you won't be able to control them well enough, but over time as this improves they become incredibly good motions surpassing most traditional chest builders. Now looking at the pulling movements, I would say they aren't that much better than the bar versions but there's also no barrier to entry since the stability requirements are non-existent compared to the presses, so you can get a good session in on those from day one.

      Besides all this, rings allow you to train your entire upper body, so they're valuable if you have periods of time where you can't go to a gym, so even with the negative points about them this alone should be reason enough for everyone to own a pair since they aren't that expensive for how much they do for you.

        I bought some rings for Christmas. Control is definitely an issue. I can't even do dips with them properly. But I'm starting with pushups and you can adjust the angles to increase the difficulty. My stability has already improved a lot.

    >seated good mornings are to squats what RDLs are to deadlifts
    i like most of what you said but why would you do them seated

      Seated good mornings change the muscular emphasis from glutes and hammies to glutes and adductors, plus due to not being limited by hamstring flexibility you can go into much greater hip flexion that resembles the bottom of a squat moreso than other hinges. Essentially you're isolating the hip extension portion of a squat, which is why I made that comparison as the RDL isolates the hip extension portion of a deadlift. Of course the RDL will have more overall carryover to the deadlift but that's because a deadlift is mostly hip extension, while a squat has high levels of both knee extension and hip extension, but that's to be expected obviously.

      >pullovers are mandatory
      Dumbbell rows are better

      Meh, they're not the same movement. I found db rows to be awkward, while pullovers light up my lats, long head of triceps, serratus, and surprisingly pecs while stretching my abs and ribs with little recovery cost.

    Where the fuck did this term come from all of a sudden? It's just circuit training

      Circuit training makes most people think of stuff that's more for cardio, while giant sets are explicitly for accumulating as much volume in a short period of time as possible while still keeping the set quality about the same.

      I bought some rings for Christmas. Control is definitely an issue. I can't even do dips with them properly. But I'm starting with pushups and you can adjust the angles to increase the difficulty. My stability has already improved a lot.

      It took me a year until I could do dips on the rings, so keep working at it. That being said I was also fairly weak when I first got them so if you already have a good base of strength it shouldn't take as long.

      Pullovers are uncomfortable as hell

      I found this to be true with dumbbells but I switched to a tricep bar and it feels much better, especially because I can just lie down on the bench and grab it off the floor instead of having to awkwardly grab the dumbbell then work my way into lying down on the bench while still holding it over me.

    What adductor exercise do you recommend?

      Adductor machine if gym, weighted tailor's pose for reps if home gym. Seated good mornings and copenhagen planks good are options too.

      >people should always go to the limit of their hamstring flexibility instead of just below the kneecap
      I feel zero stretch until mid-shin. I can get my chest flat on pike stretch though

      I don't even feel a stretch at mid shin, I need to go to just above my toes with a wide grip with an arched back with my knees behind my toes to get a stretch now.

    Reverse curls are not a compound, they are an isolation.
    It contains 1 joint, the elbow.

      This is true, I mean that they are a forearm compound in the sense that they hit every major part of the forearm. You train not only the brachioradialis but also the finger flexors and wrist extensors isometrically.
