  1. Well, the DB flies are purely a "fun" exercise that I like to do because of the aesthetic "pop" you get from them immediately after. I was thinking of hip bridges or hip thrusts, so maybe I'll alternate those.
  2. So, I finally got over my gym anxiety by signing up for a beginning weightlifting class and finally feel like I can step into a gym without feeling overwhelmed - woot. But, the class is over now, and I need some help creating a routine so that I can keep this going. Now, I'm about to say something that very few people here are going to like, but, I need to avoid deadlifts for now. See, my class trainer was big into deadlifts, but for the life of me I cannot perform one with good form. My lower back is fairly weak, my shoulders are underdeveloped, and my hip hinge has no idea how to function. So what I need are accessory exercises so I can at least do a deadlift correctly first. Here's what I've come up with so far: Incline DB Press: 4x8 Lat Pull-Downs: 4x8 (part of the DL training) Back Squats: 4x8 (will alternate with goblet squats until I feel ready for front squats) DB Flys: 4x8 So I'm thinking at least another lower body movement and/or a movement to improve my deadlift form. Thanks
