    I think the easiest way is to look at your daily volume like a pyramid, or simply order exercises based on where they would fall load-wise. Basically if you were to do a back day, start with heavy...

    Most I can see from that vid is your hips start going up before your chest and shoulders, making you do that slight good morning where your legs are moving up but your torso sort of remains bent in...

    At your level 5 times a week for one lift is a bit much. 2-3 times a week I would understand but 5 just seems weird for bench pressing. I would do what your coach says unless you start going in the...

    I've squatted as high as 450 with nothing on my knees at all ( everything higher was with wraps) I have been using sleeves for a year now, they are something that don't really have a specific weight...

    It depends on how you plan on training. Something like 5x5 where the intensity and volume is cycled is one thing you are only doing something like 25 reps per lift/body part per workout so your...

    Well if your old training style had you working chest one day and shoulders on another day, or the loads/volume/freqeuncy are different, this will affect how much weight you can handle on whatever...

    I think the point of lifting is to not look "normal". If you look exactly like the guy in your picture I don't know why you would be complaining unless you think you don't have enough overall size. ...

    People come and read it, what more did you want? It looks pretty similar to any and every PPL routine so there isn't much to comment on, other than wtf is a reverse calf raise?

    You don't lose weight with maintenance calorie levels, that's why they are called maintenance. Basically you are going to have to adapt over time just like everyone else. No one who is big or...

    Yeah honestly I started off by using the old old 9 week template, just not exactly as written. I made it a point to cycle my main lifts every 3 weeks ( as I really wasn't in an optimal spot to train...

    There's a balance. Hitting everything twice a week you are going to use less volume per session then you would hitting everything once a week.

    The thing is, you can't expect to progress, even...

    The guys I used to train with often did this, or simply did a heavier lift variant as their main assistance move ( like 3-5 reps). The reasoning behind the 90% speed work is basically pyramiding...

    There is nothing wrong with going by % guidelines to start, you just can't do it forever and expect to see the same type of results.

    I would argue that strength is important but if you don't care how strong you actually get it isn't the end all be all in programming. If you were brand new I would say do SS or all pros or 5x5. If...

    It doesn't apply to this style of training though. You can say things like "do speed work with 50-65% of your 1rm" or "hit 3-5 lifts over 90%" But for any given day that will be a different number....
