    I picked up a cellulitus infection a few years ago in a gym, through a tiny cut on my foot. 2 weeks in hospital, could have lost my leg.

    All the calorie numbers are kind of meaningless. He's almost certainly eating more than you think, but it doesn't matter. No weight loss in two weeks is not abnormal. I've gone 3 weeks or more...

    I don't know if you're 15% or under. It doesn't matter. You're going to see more improvements in a shorter timeframe from bulking right now, given your age and current body composition.

    Bulk up mate.

    Bulking:

    1. Calculate your calories and macros
    2. Learn about how bulking works and set reasonable expectations.

    I think the issue you see with beginners on advanced programs is that they start doing a split that has them training individual bodyparts with isolation work once a week per muscle group (your...

    Just find a weight you can comfortably do the target reps with. It doesn't really matter what the number is.

    Don't push it either. So many first time beginners push hard with a burst of...

    You're doing OK. I'd drop the carnitine and CLA (both useless), and get some fish oil, creatine, vitamind d3, and a good multivitamin.

    Your priority is dropping fat right now. Lift weights while...

    Walking isn't going to cut into your recovery mate. You could probably do a lot more than that and not feel it at all.

    I would imagine it'll improve a little, but my guess is that the majority of that is probably with you for life mate, unless you get surgery.

    Once you meet the minimum goals for protein and fat, additional calories up to your limit can come from anything. Most people like to get them from carbs for performance reasons, but it's not...

    It's only effective at all if you're deficient in it for some reason. Elderly people with extremely poor diets are sometimes deficient in it.

    140 is fine. More is better when cutting. The thermic effect of protein means fewer effective calories available, plus it keeps you full longer.

    Check your form on the press. If you're hyperextending your back, drop the weight back and keep it strict.

    Pinch the skin on the back of your hand. That's what skin is like with negligible fat underneath.

    Cripes, my shoulders hurt just from watching that second set. First set was OK, but even for those, I actually try to keep my feet in front of my body to shift my center of gravity forward. The...

    Seems reasonable. Try to set your macros by absolute numbers, not ratios. So 140g protein, maybe 60g fat, and the rest from carbs. Protein and fat are minimums, so if you scale calories up,...
