    Had slowly started to make progress with pulls ups just before my gym closed and getting 4 pull ups over 4 sets down.

    Hi Guys I was wondering if someone can help me. I keep getting lower back pain from my low bar squats. After a bit of research I realised it is because of posterior pelvic tilt, or "butt wink". Basically, even with lighter weights, I'm finding myself perform this in pursuit of reaching...

    I was training today and I saw this bloke benching 120KG but my gosh his form was absolutely shocking! The following picture taken from google is exactly how he was benching if not worse.

    I recently purchased a tub of GABA 300 grams, it was much cheaper than the capsules. However the box does not have the manufacturer details on it, so I am concerned as to its contents. If Swanson and others can sell the capsules and print their name on the bottle, why can't these guys too...

    At the moment when I am working out with the seated row, I try to keep my back straight rather than leaning in and then leaning back and pulling the weight. I wasn't sure which form would be the best. Any help would be grateful
