Changing it up.

Periodization: Necessary? Optimal? or just individual preference?

Note volume is just...

Sudden atrophy mid-program

I have lifted for a year or three here and there since I was about 20, and I am 40 now.

I mean, he advocated later in his life to do a single workout to failure every like 5-10 days, but I tried it a little myself some years and I never grew anything, almost nothing in strength ether, but now later I feel I could probably do a single workout and then rest some days before doing the...
