    No, it's very good for the muscles that support the spine (the core) if you do it correctly. Read the sticky threads in the exercises forum for tips on forum. Video yourself and check your spine...

    You should at least ballpark calories so that you are in some kind of control. You want a surplus - but a small and consistent one around 300 over maintenance.

    Fortunately for you, when you eat...

    I would choose Fierce 5. You should gain both strength and size rapidly if you eat enough protein rich wholefoods.

    Don't agree with that at all. Look at top lifters like Layne Norton who is using DUP - training squat 3-4x a week and deadlifts 2-3x. He competes in a drug tested competition (and has successfully...

    It's a high frequency routine so you will become acclimatised to it fairly quickly and the DOMS should drop to a dull roar.

    It's the primary factor yes. There are other things that have an influence such as weight used, time under tension, fatigue etc. The key thing is never to swing the balance of your program to favour...

    I squat, press, bench and pullup 3x a week. Deadlift 2x

    Not too demanding for this 43yo CNS

    You will probably run out of weight fairly quickly, especially on stiff leg deadlift, squat and bench press. Get a pair of the biggest plates you can afford

    Yes. 25 reps with a weight which is probably 80% of you 1RM - done 2 or 3 times a week is a lot of growth stimulation.

    But the work done won't be the same. With a pyramid, you will be probably doing less volume but with a higher peak weight. 5x5 with same weight will require a lower weight but is still a good...

    ^Thanks man. I had a days gap between Tension and Volume pullups - so todays were better than usual too.

    Weight: 85.1kg

    Deadlift:
    3 x 165kg
    3 x 170kg
    3 x 175kg
    3 x 180kg -- I felt half...

    Interval training is where you do an activity which is too intense to sustain for more than a few minutes at a time. For example sprinting or weight training. So you slow down to a walk inbetween the...

    5/3/1 is perfect. Remember do NOT skimp on the accessory exercises. Do BBB (for example) with a real sense of purpose because this is where the majority of your long term strength improvement will...

    Not that important. What matters is total volume over time (weight x reps x sets x workouts)

    Higher reps will allow more volume without as much fatigue as trying to do more sets of lower reps with...

    Of course main compounds can form the foundation of a mass oriented routine - look at ICF5x5 for an example on how to do this. Don't make the mistake of thinking 5x5 (esp. with sets across not...

    No

    I don't see the point of being partisan about exercises. Bench press is much easier to adjust resistance (which may be very important depending on your level) but pushups engage the core a...

    No, it's for sports performance with a heavy emphasis on peak force production and strength-speed.

    Monitor long term changes in weight. Ignore short term bloating due to carb or sodium causing water retention.

    Some other observations: do a well known routine like Fierce 5 or All Pros. A...

    Some programs might do this to regulate the total workload. All Pros does something similar. It's not something I would advise doing willy nilly. All Pros and other good routines fit together like a...
