Good things take time. After getting my DEXA this afternoon, I’m still happy. I’ve done a bit of an analysis of my Body composition over the last 12 months. I.e. from my scan completed on 20/04/2012 and my one done today 05/04/2013. I want to note I also did a big detox in July 2012 which meant I actually lost a lot of mass and muscle tissue. July 2012 to April 2013 (so after a...

The trusty Deadlift is a “Pull” Compound movement (using multiple muscle groups) that should be in your weight training programme. Whilst it targets Gluteus Maximus, it also works the quadriceps, hamstrings, soleus and various other muscle groups. As such the strong use of legs and back muscles to complete the deadlift make it an ideal “pinnacle” exercise. Deadlifts can...

DOMS (DELAYED ONSET MUSCLE SORENESS)
DOMS can be caused by a number of factors and effects everyone in different ways. Ill try get this down to basics. Exercise causes free radical damage through excess oxygen particles.
