    Aspartame is pretty much harmless. The health concerns about it originated almost exclusively through a spam email back in the 90's, credited to a doctor who didn't exist. Lots of research has been...

    To those saying the powerlifts aren't advanced, let's put it this way: On a spectrum from donkey kicks to snatches, squats and deadlifts are somewhere between those extremes. They aren't as advanced...

    Your weight doesn't determine how big/small you are. If you're 5'00", 65kg might be a bit much. If you're 6'00", 65kg is probably skinny. After considering height, there's also the big factor of body...

    Firstly, congratulations on 70lb weight loss. That's no small feat.

    Each individual muscle group on its own looks fine, but how do you plan to put all of this together throughout the week?

    5x5 is good; it isn't perfect. It has its place, just like everything, but I think it's best used for about a month at a time when moving from higher reps towards lower reps. Programs like SL5x5...
