is doing the weight training three days in a row bad for you?
I just had a quick question to all those out there. Is weight training three consecutive days bad for you? I would be training different muscle groups on the three days and rest for the remainder of the week. Let me know if anyone has insight. Han Kim

Efforts noticed in the gym
I just wanted to share this story with everyone... I was just starting my LBWO this morning -- doing squats on the smith machine -- when an older gentleman approached me. He's about 75 or so and fit as a fiddle, a real Jack Lalanne type. I see him in the weight room every time I do weights...

If anyone would be willing to post their weight workouts and exercises I would really appreciate it. I need some new ideas. Also, how does everyone complete the ab portion of the lower body workout? Do you use weights with it or just complete the reps? Thanks for the info!

Chest and Shoulders Stretching Exercises for fellow beginners
I wasn't aware that we were supposed to use the same weight used at level 7 for level 9 repetitions ( I asked and a fellow BFLers told me on here). I hit the gym yesterday doing as told and I was terribly sore. I was not aware there are any chest stretch exercises. But today I felt my chest muscles...

New to BFL and slightly confused on weights/sets/reps
Hello all: I am new to BFL; just started day 1 today and I'm excited about the challenge. I'm not necessarily "new" to the gym, but I've never been consistent. I understand the set/rep/intensity schedule, but I'm a little confused if I should be selecting a single weight...

This question if for the BFL veterns. For the duration of BLF, do you do the same exercise every time? For example, on the upper body days for the chest muscle group, do you do dumbbell bench press for the first 5 sets, then dumbbell flye for the last intense set, every time you do an upper body day...
