    Default Dips

    When doing hanging weighted dips, to focus on the chest more- what I do is pull my knees up towar my chest (not all the way just in that direction). This changes the center of gravity, causing the torso to lean forward, taking emphasis off the delts and tris and putting it more on the chest.

    hey guys quick question. When doing shoulder presses how low are you supposed to go? I heard it was 90 degrees and I also hear below 90.

    When i do 1 Arm Dumbbell rows i try to "pull" my hips to the side i'm rowing the dumbbell, i can feel my lats contract a LOT more clearly and intensely. I'm guessing because it brings the two insertion points closer together? Think of it about a bicep contraction where it's obviously easier to flex when your arm is bent, now straighten your arm and flex your bicep. The contraction probably isn't as strong.

    Simple tweak is taking in air before you lift off the squat bar. Hold the air until you are in the set up. Catch some breaths. Before each rep take and hold your air.
