    When you cut, train like you're bulking. In both circumstances, the goal is to maximise the amount of muscle mass on your body. When bulking, you'll build more muscle than while cutting because...

    Ed Coan's coach was always happy to have beginners doing each lift only once a week provided they had good coaching (ie HIS coaching) on each session.

    There are pros and cons to training each...

    I don't consciously know anything about McRoberts, so I can't comment on that directly. But if you've finished a training cycle, that is an appropriate time to consider what exercises have been...

    How have you established that free group classes are resulting in difficulty building PT client bases?

    I don't have any direct marketing strategies for you, but overall a system needs to be...

    You've still got gains to make doing what you're doing, so I wouldn't jump ship completely. But it sounds like your goals need a little more specificity than pure strength alone. So here are some...

    For overall leg development, do multiple squat variations and go beyond squats.

    Front squats theoretically use a higher percentage of quadriceps to do the movement than back squats, but are often...

    Do you have a dead start at the beginning of each rep, or are you doing touch'n'go/bouncing deadlifts? Is your starting position the same on each rep? Are you taking the slack out on every rep? Are...

    Agreed -- it's consuming less energy than you use each day that will cull excess body fat, not any specific exercises.

    They're a good glute exercise, but I don't think it's made any difference to my squat or deadlift numbers when I have them in my program vs when I leave them out. They have definitely improved the...

    I can't comment on the program as I haven't read into it. As for training, I'd get into heavy (relative to what you can control) resistance training ASAP, as it will give your body a reason to...

    Right, that clears things up a bit.

    I still wouldn't call that pre-exhaustion, because the main sets of squats have been done. That's more of a glute "finisher."

    Sounds like a solid plan.

    So, your context is that you do both resistance training and cardio, and have found that most effective for fat lost in the past? But now something's going bad when you do your normal cardio so you...

    That sounds like post-exhaustion to me. If I'm wrong, please correct.

    Pre-exhaust is certainly an option. As FireKnight said, it does depend how much the specific muscles are the goal, and how much the lift is a goal unto itself.

    Some reasons to pre-fatigue your...

    In the two meets I've done, squat and bench press were weaker than in the gym, but deadlift was right on point (in fact, each time my 3rd deadlift felt easier than anticipated). Both times I was...

    Jonrik, you are by far the smartest new poster I have ever seen on these forums. I'm dead serious. You've just raised all the right questions and in doing so have shown how bad some of the prevailing...
