Sticky Thread Sticky: Body Fat % - What is it, and how to measure it!

In the industry we are in, and with such a focus on 'being lean', it is no surprise that everyone is curious as to what their BF is. However - in the female community on a whole, there is a gross distortion of what a persons BF usually is! So - on the request of a few members, I have put together...

Strength training for 16 yo girl?

I'm 5'7 and currently weigh 160 lbs. I have a natural tendency for muscle gain when I exercise a lot so my "fit" is around 150 lbs. I've tried getting skinny through cardio, but that doesn't work for me and I hate running on the elliptical anyways. I figured it'd be more worthwhile to get really...

Split vs Full Body programs

I've read about both workout styles and I understand that if one has limited days to train or they are beginners that they should chose a full body program. But in the case where a person is not a beginner, has enough days to workout in the week, will a split routine bring better results? A...

can i bulk and still run long distance at the same time?

Hello all, i am new to this site and new to bulking. I want to start my first bulk but i also plan on 30 plus miles a week at the same time. That would put me at eating 3,000 calories a day. Does this sound reasonable? I really dont want to give up running. Also how long should i bulk for?
