    If more people did their weighted dips first and really hammered them when they're fresh many would see an improvement in the pecs in a short time.

    I like to do one exercise for a muscle then do an exercise for the other muscle I'm working that day and alternate back and forth.

    You should cut longer. It takes awhile for your body to change gears and recognize the defecit. It's like a moving train. Going from forward to reverse takes time. You can't just slam on the brakes...

    Wait a little while. Take the time to research things. Come back in 4 months and ask questions about what you've read. No fat burners for you, period.
