Question Starting my days at the gym

New Year Goals Mistake #1: Spoiled with Variety!

File this under: I should have known better! So, starting last year (7/17) with a Full Body, changing to a Push/Pull (9/17), and finally evolving into a Push/Pull with Volume Periodization (1/18), I’ve been experimenting with doing 1 set of each chosen exercise. For example, 3 sets for chest...

how many pull-ups - avg./typical U.S. // fit 50-yr-old man ??

Greetings - I was wondering ... How many pull-ups do you think the average 50-year-old American male can do? And how many pull-ups do you think a fit 50-year-old male should be able to do? In part idle curiosity, but mostly trying to set a reasonable target for myself.

Squatting barefoot better than chucks?

Was thinking about getting some squatting shoes or chuck taylors as I only have BB sneakers... Today I squatted barefoot and found it fine. I take it this is just as good or better that squat specific footware?

How much weight gain per week?

On my bulk now and I think I'm gaining too slowly. About 1kg (2lbs) per month seems to be the average. Is this too slow? Should I be aiming for 2kg a month? (about 4lbs). I know it all depends on how long you've been lifting for, but what's a safe number? Would like to bulk until 209.5lbs (about...

Realistic maintenance

6’2 189 Calculator on here estimates my maintenance at 2412. I’m guessing that would put me around 2800 for conservative gains. I ate at 4K for 10 weeks and only gained 8 pounds (pretty much all fat). I have since cut back to 2300 for 4 days now and and have dropped 4 pounds. I started the 4K bulk...

Split squat.
