    I guess it depends on your personal comfort and stance. I recently went from only using chucks since forever to using some cheap wei ru's. My squat stance has come significantly closer since I was...

    Don't take this as an insult but you might simply have poor squat form and pretty obviously lost a lot of mobility. Start your workouts with mobility work and plenty of stretching and foam rolling...

    I leave them as optional until I get to that point in the training day. I usually go in with a few ideas but depending on how I feel by the end of the workout I might alter it, or even for something...

    You probably will not lean out as you build more muscle if that is what you are asking. If you were skinny fat and just getting into lifting then yeah, adding muscle while gaining as little fat as...

    For me its easier to fight a sumo pull than a conventional. I have been working on my conventional and I've noticed as soon as I get to a certain point of feeling like my form is going to break...

    When people say full body multiple times per week they don't really mean your standard muscle group split smashed all into one or two days. Push pull legs allows you to hit everything twice in a...
