    Shoulders- they always seem to burn much fasterbthan my other muscles. And I hate the T-plank. Horrid.

    I mean there's so many ants in my eyes! And there are so many TVs, microwaves, radios... I think, I can't, I'm not 100% sure what we have here in stock.. I don't know because I can't see anything! Our prices, I hope, aren't too low!

    My grip is holding me back- I do Convict Conditioning, and both abs and pullups require decent grip strength. I could hit both of those exercises harder if I could hang on to the bar a little longer.

    It affects my squat, too, actually. I have the bowflex adjustable dumbbells, and I add extra weight in a bag on my back if I need it, but hanging on to those dumbbells can be an issue at the "heavier" weights I'm using for squats.

    Also, my love for my wife's homemade pie. That doesn't help.

    I do Convict Conditioning. My weak link is definitely hip flexors. Having a hard time getting past level one. My hip flexors are also very tight and I started stretching and that seems to have helped some. Seems I hit the lactic acid burn long before the muscles give out.

    Any suggestions?

    I assume you are talking about the leg raise series.

    Tight hip flexors- do you sit a lot? I would say that walking with a focus on feeling a stretch there might help. I find that functional movements give better flexibility gains than stretching alone. Even just standing more than you sit will probably help. Sitting at an obtuse angle (>90 degrees) will look like you are slouching but won't cause more hip problems. Make sure to keep your back straight when you recline.

    Overhead press. I got to half body weight on it and no go further. I try hard, push, but end up leaning back, and always hurting my low back. Which sucks, because there is always Deadlift right after. I have no idea how to improve OHP. I had a horrible trouble with the bench, but then found the grip and the tightness, and stuff, and it improved a little. Overhead press goes down the moment anything is wrong at all. I hate it, but there is no alternative, but to shamefully take out 0.5 lbs from my ankle weights, and try another set to see which minuscule weight I can push over my head this week... Arhg.

    I love anything to do with upper body since I find the pain and difficulty really enjoyable for some odd reason. But I dislike the pain felt by doing squats. Maybe it has to do with my form....weak legs?
