How to size clothing and should I exchange my new jeans?

A bulk adds 15 to 20 lbs. A cut loses 10 to 15 lbs. How the hell to choose clothes sizes? I ride bikes a lot in the city and my pants are all getting shredded in the crotch. I ordered a pair from Swrve. Some stretch, got slim fit (not skinny lol). They are a bit tight in the waist, and thighs...

ABC diet

many years back there was a diet called Anabolic Burst Cycle. It was simple, eat like a maniac for 2 weeks, like 3000 calories + per day then switch to around 1800 calories per day for 2 weeks. This cycle, of course, is done with heavy lifting. Anyone ever try it? The theory behind it is that...

Questioning My Rep Ranges

Hey everyone, So I know the power of progressive overload, and believe in constantly increasing reps/weight. I'm wondering however about the relationship between lifting to failure and reps per set. I assume most of you have wondered about it to. My topic is twofold. Let me explain: Let's...

Hard time gaining muscle mass

I recently had 5 week lay off because I had to have surgery. I started off, for example, lifting 25 lbs dumbbells for the shoulder press and was able to increase weight gradually until I was lifting 40 lbs dumbbells. Which is heavier than my presurgery maximum. However, my muscle mass did not...

Racing my brother to pull 500

I posted today's top set on Facebook and ended up challenging my brother to race to 500. He's been lifting for years, is 6 ft tall, weighs 200 lbs, and is already at 475. But he's a hardgainer and uses himself as an example that even the scrawny kids can get jacked. I'm only at 455 and much...

The Truth About Kettlebells

I've dabbled with kettlebells here and there, but not really at all in the last 10 years, however from what I know about what they can do from experience and what I've been seeing lately, most folks who have been on serious kettlebell routine only, meaning "strongfirst" certified type instructor...
