    Agree with most of this. Nothing wrong with accessories to make sure you're stimulating growth in the desired muscles (given it doesn't take away from your more important training). The only thing is...

    Yea the mirror SUCKS. Every time I get put in a situation where I don't have a mirror my form is way better and I'm way stronger. The squat rack at my gym faces the mirror, is only one sided, and I'm...

    I've been so back and forth on this topic... I'm not even sure anymore. I've tried both low fat and low carb diets and I pretty much feel 100% normal on both. Maybe a bit more satiated/less hungry...

    I proposed the idea semi-recently of significantly lowering protein during a refeed to make more room for carbs. Didn't get much feedback; some thought it was a good idea, some thought it wouldn't...

    Subbing, coming from that DUP discussion thread. Good stuff! Looking forward to coming up with a similar style ("style II" from the post you quoted :p). What is this "Norwegian program" you...

    Ah, very interesting stuff. Yea without knowing any better I would guess there's really no difference between the two styles, other than potential psychological/time/fatigue effects. Like I can see...

    Nah, each week is A, B, then C. All 9 of those letters happen each week (there's 3 exercises in there). So each week you do each lift (column) 3 times. For example, the first column may represent...

    I like to do full body workouts for the purpose of keeping things relatively high frequency - e.g. 3-4x/week (training every other day). Are there any pros/cons to keeping full days of 1 type or...

    Definitely agree that accuracy is irrelevant. It's effective because it allows you to be precise and consistent, which is all that matters.

    Would you though? If protein is high enough to just totally spill over in terms of usefulness, then I guess? But I imagine there's also a middle region where gluconeogenesis happens just to fuel the...

    Ah missed that post. Ok. Well I'm still not sure I'd agree (might argue yes, just asking questions at this point though). What is it that is actually being evaluated, and what factor does the...

    What's your definition of a "true ketogenic diet"? Do you need to be in ketosis? Do you need to hit a certain ketogenic ratio? Do carbs need to be below a certain amount? Is it insulin/blood sugar...

    You don't believe they exist? Or you don't believe they're relevant for practical diet composition? These are very different.

    Man rough crowd. Not wanting your lower back to round is pretty valid. The OP was also fine. You don't have to GIVE an either or answer if you don't believe it's black and white. You also don't have...

    "It depends" is certainly a valid answer. What would be even better though, is do you have a way of determining the cause of a problem, such as this, when seeing the lift?

    This seems like a common contradictory thing I see in weight lifting analysis, and I think OP phrased the question very well. In for answers.

    Another area I see this type of conversation come up...

    Thanks for the response man. Seems like you agree - low protein for one day is worth the carb benefits for the refeed. Regarding myself, I was really just thinking about it in a general way. I have...

    Ok, interesting about the 3-4 day time scale. Agree with most of your post.

    So given the fact that protein seems to not play much of a role in the refeed, my original proposition was to drop...
  • Can excess protein contribute to glycogen stores?

    Pretty self-explanatory title IMO. I'm sort of thinking in the context of refeeds here. Generally, with an LBM of 160 and bodyweight somewhere in the 190s, I like to get between 160-200 grams of...
