1) Good 'chest hypertrophy exercises' that work for you? just looking for inspiration really to mix things up a bit
Currently doing bench, pause bench just above sternum (without touching), military press for low reps/high sets, then I'll do dumbell press for something like 3x10-12.
2) Same question as above, just for abs.
I don't do any extra ab work, only low rep high sets on compounds (deadlift, pause deadlift, squat, press etc)
3) I'm a naturally good deadlifter, but I hurt my lower back even though I'm really form conscious. Turns out I'm not breathing and or bracing properly like I do on squats.
How do you set up your breathing before deadlifts? Do you take a (diaphragmatic) breath, then get into the deadlift position, or do you do it when you're already in position - then just reset the brace after each rep? I've worked on my breathing/bracing for squats and they're now super comfortable in terms of form at least, but I've neglected deadlift form a bit.
I can't quite find what's comfortable/feels right. I'm sticking with warm up weights till I get it right, and incorporated pause deads to help.
Just a few questions
