    Unless you were cutting at a fairly steep deficit fora long time, there's no real need to do this.

    You kind of have the wrong idea on specific foods mate. In terms of fat loss and muscle gain, foods are best thought of as packages of macronutrients. Set a calorie goal for yourself, and targets...

    There's really no such thing as a detox mate, in terms of fat loss. Carbs don't case fat gain or loss, calories do, regardless of where they come from.

    Think about that for a sec. If you keep thinking like that, how will you ever sustain yourself long term? If you need to overeat these foods in massive quantities, then you will regain fat. This...

    You don't lift weights to lose fat mate, you lift weights to retain muscle while cutting. If you don't, a portion of weight lost will be lean tissue instead of fat.

    When you're lifting, inflammation of the muscle tissue and surrounding connective tissue will cause swelling and it'll pull in water. The effect can be pretty dramatic in some people, and it can...

    It offers no fat loss advantage, unless you're doing it as part of a highly specialized setup (yohimbe supplementation on a CKD for instance).

    It depends on effort expended. 30 minutes of cycling uphill at top speed is going to burn far more calories than coasting on a level surface at slow speed. Distance is irrelevant unless intensity...

    When you're out of the beginner stage, periodization is more important than any one rep range. You could do a simple linear periodization that starts out at a higher rep range, then load weight on...
