    The calves have a very low androgen receptor density, the only way to make them grow is via work induced hypertrophy (which is independent of hormones), in other words you need to overload them with...

    1. Adding weight to the bar increases your volume but nowhere near fast enough to keep up with experience induced diminishing returns, as you become more advanced you need to start adding more sets...

    I can see progress, especially in the pecs and delts. I'm not sure this is the answer you want to hear but the only way you're going to see faster progress is by increasing your training volume quite...

    And it's very important to eat a lot of starch (rice, pasta etc) otherwise you'll tank very quickly, a low carb diet combined with a high volume routine never ends well, lol.

    You'll be fine without meat, milk and eggs will do the job just fine. If possible try to supplement with creatine, your intake will be very low if you're not eating meat, people with low meat intakes...

    Milk and eggs are very good, those numbers work out to around 3 litres of milk and around 10 whole eggs, is that what you're eating?

    You need to train each muscle at least twice per week and vegetarian diets are not ideal for building muscle mass, in fact they're terrible.

    Training to/near failure increases efficiency, this...

    Davo only go as low as flexibility allows, going too deep can cause shoulder problems. Another alternative as Lurker mentioned is to lower the bar to your upper pecs rather than your neck.

    Everyone starts with 1 set, you need to give your body time to adjust to high frequency training, advanced lifters can probably add an extra set every 6 months instead of 12 months, at least until...

    You won't be able to perform 10 sets of 10 reps with a 20 rep max with only 60 seconds between sets, the idea is to start with a 20 rep max and stick with it until you can complete 10 reps in all 10...
