Sticky Thread Sticky: DON'T LOOK PAST the BASICS

From what I've been reading in this forum for the past several years---and it's getting worse, not better---most posters here are, for some reason, missing the basics of fat loss, and instead, are looking for some magic bullet, or worse, putting their faith in some TV or youtube guru, or some...

Question Is cutting in lockdown a bad idea?

I was thinking of going on a cut get a little leaner before the gyms reopen whenever that will be so I can go into a “lean bulk” when they’re open however is it risky to cut atm seeing as I have 0 equipment apart from a rucksack and a band, will I lose more muscle mass with the lack of equipment?

Lower volume while cutting

Is low volume the way to go? My first cut I was still fairly new to lifting and grinding away lifting to failure in the 5 rep range on a modified PPL style routine. I lost a bit of strength on all lifts, primarily bench press. I also did a good bit of bike riding and hiking, burning extra...

Hello Guys, As title states, is there anything like a lean cut as there is like for example a lean bulk.

Spice up your jogging today because you might be doing it all wrong

Running does not efficiently, if ever, make you lose weight. Running is what exercise professionals like to call “steady-state cardio.” This is cardio that lacks the intensity to produce an extreme response by the body; you can tell this because your heart rate remains relatively stable...
