what? beginners are generally told to do compound lifts and focus on developing correct form. compound lifts are super beneficial for strength gain especially for beginners when they gain strength fast. when they become a bit more experienced they can go on to start isolating, but at the start just sticking to squat, dl, bench, ohp + some accessories is well enough

Ehh, I would say machines are good for beginners because they won't hurt themselves and it's harder to have poor form. I don't think it's a bad idea to start with machines for higher loads while you're working on technique with free weights.

Beginners don't need to load all that heavy anyway in the beginning, so doing compounds with relatively light weights and practicing correct form will set them up to be able to handle heavy loads later on. The point is, that if you're a true beginner, you will gain strength really fast, so you are able to benefit from building a safe lifting future as well as rapid growth of strength, while using lower load than an intermediate. I'm not trying to attack you here, I'm just curious as to when you think a lifter should start doing compounds if not in the beginning? If you're already used to moving heavy weights by using machines and then transition into compounds, you're most likely going to load it heavy in order to actually gain something. Problem is, not having learned and trained with proper form before, the gains aren't going to be as optimized and the risk of injury is going to increase a lot. This is obviously not the case for everyone, but it can be. If the lifter has some sense, he won't load max weights when starting the transition to compounds, but there sure as hell are ego-lifters who do, or newbs who go around asking "what weight should I use for x and y?" when nobody has ever seen the guy or knows anything about his stats. edit: sorry for wall of text, got carried away a bit :D

8-12 reps, 4 sets for growth. Higher than that for strength. Start light, do progressive overload. Which means to increase the weight over time.

Honestly beginners shouldn't 5x5 imo,tons of people,even experienced ones have garbage form.Telling a beginner that has no idea how to do things correctly to do heavy weights with high volume isnt the greatest idea,thats a recipe for injury.

2021-10-22 15:08
You can do a bunch of different exercises with dumbbells. Some people consider bench press with dumbbells to be as a good as traditional bench press or better. Its what you prefer. But u can do a bunch of shoulder, arm, chest, back and even leg exercises with dumbbells... but i wouldnt base my whole workouts solely on dumbbells

Some people who bench press with dumbbells can isolate and flex their chest more during workout + apparently it's safer for the shoulders. I feel like you can do everything with dumbbells, but maybe a cable machine would come in handy for posterior shoulder and triceps.

true-i have built my triceps doing cable machine triceps exercise but at home when i didnt had cable machine i did triceps exercise with dumbbell-you just need a very heavy one like mine 24kg in order to feel it.Recently i have bought this one p1.akcdn.net/full/430097541.klarfit-fit-.. for 140 euro super deal im so happy xD now i can do biceps,triceps,lat pulldown,back,shoulders even chest on that machine as well

unluko but that deal is really good one-this machine was 50% off/usually is ~300 euro/ so i have waited for a big sale in order to buy the weights so it costs me 140 for the machine+2x20kg weights for the machine /130 euro/ and i have paid only 270 euro for all this xD
2021-10-23 09:39
i have 24kg dumbbell i have a big pillows that i place on the floor vertically so i form soft place for my body then i sit and infront of me between my legs i have placed my dumbbell.Then i grab the dumbbell with both hands and lay on the pillows and grab the dumbbell with my right hand and start doing 1 set of 10 reps with it then change the hands and do the same. repeat until you make 4 sets of 10 reps Now you can do triceps exercise where you can just push the dumbbell up you can do chest exercise where you expand your hand to the side with the dumbel you can do legs exercise using both hands and crouching with the dumbel vertically

Chest -> flat & incline db chest press, db chest flies, etc Quads -> bulgarian split squats with db, goblet squats, etc Back -> db rows (single arm, both at once, etc) Shoulders : -> lateral head -> lateral raises -> anterior head -> db shoulder press -> rear head -> rear db flies, db rear delt rows Hamstring -> stiff leg deadlifts with db Glute -> romanian deadlifts with db Tricpes -> db skullcrushers, overhead extensions, etc Biceps -> incline db curls, standing db curls, etc Technique for each exercise is nuanced but there still some general guidelines you can follow by watching some videos on youtube like Renaissance Periodization, Eugene theo, or Paul Carter and N1education (both at instagram) As for reps, studies shown 5-30 reps will build muscle as long as you bring your reps close to failure for each set, at least 3-4 reps before failure.

I follow a Push Pull Legs Routine and I pretty much use 4 sets for every exercise, for accessories or if I’m feeling it I’ll do a + 1 superset or drop set. For heavy lifts or compound lifts I got for 6 - 10 reps whilst accessories or machines ill go for 10 - 12 reps
