    - First 3 min: Diatribe that has little, if anything, to do with the upcoming "best argument."

    I enjoy both eating and doing copious amounts of exercise. I'm devastated to discover that the stuff I do when I'm not lifting doesn't exist.

    If you aren't gaining weight, you aren't eating enough to gain weight. Period. Add another 200kcal/day. Maintain that intake for 2 weeks. Have you gained 1lb? Good, keep it up. Are you still the same...

    CF is a brand, not a program, so it doesn't really have much of a template. It's up to the coach. I've seen the CF website promote 5x5, 5x2's, 10x1's, 3x3's...all valuable methods of adding strength,...

    5x5 is a fairly common way to get some strength work in, although it's nothing magical. More serious strength training will use more than just 5 sets of 5 on any given exercise, however you certainly...

    Because I'm a full-time uni student, I am quite deliberate about training people part-time, so the number of sessions I do isn't what makes our breaks me.
