    In the deadlift your hips are rising before the bar does. They should move in unison.

    OHP is OK, but use a suicide grip (thumbs over bar) if you're going to grip that close.

    Your stance is too...

    I understand there's some research about to come out on this actually. Early indications are that it could be very beneficial.

    In my opinion, anytime a beginner starts trying to train on their own bodypart split, they're doing it wrong. There are reasonably well designed bodypart splits out there, like MAX-OT, but they are...

    Your time is probably better spent fixing the problem as opposed to looking for new exercises to just work around it. It's not normal and is likely to get worse unless it's fixed. You need to see a...

    Generally speaking, pulling movement that puts your elbows behind your shoulders carriers a higher risk of injury.

    Face pulls, shrugs and rear delt flies get the job done safely.

    Good question, I'm not sure. If I had to guess though, I think AMPk will continue to be produced and mTORC1 will continue to be downregulated. In an endurance-trained individual, it won't lead to...

    Yep, so I did.



    It's an enzyme involved in signalling pathyways that promote endurance adaptations. It's antagonistic to mTORC1, which promotes strength and hypertrophy adaptations. As one...

    I'm not sure about running, but I would think you'd see something in the 30 minute mark and above. The proximity to resistance training is probably more important than the net duration though.

    No, it's reasonable. In fact, you won't be able to sustain that pace of gains for long. If you kept up that pace for a year you'd be benching 335 in working sets. That'd be extremely advanced for...

    Your health is a fairly serious issue when you're over 20% bodyfat. Cutting takes priority over strength or muscle gain/recomp goals at that point to my mind.
