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...

Deload while cutting

Based on all the advice I've come across, when cutting one is supposed to keep training the same as before, keeping the intensity high and trying to make continued progress, in order to prevent or minimize fat loss. Deloads are part of any good routine, and in many programs (such as eg. Fierce 5)...

Smile Best Plank Tutorial

The plank is an excellent abdominal and core exercise. It works not only the rectus abdominis, but also the other ab muscles and the core muscles that run from the pelvis along the spine and up to the shoulder girdle. To ensure you keep your core strong and stable, add the plank to your ab workout...

Plateaued for 3-4 weeks. Need advice.

Hey fellas, stats at the bottom. I started my cut 4 months ago at 2300 calories and when loss slowed down I typically dropped calories a bit. Most of my strength that I lost was initial (for ex: went from benching 225 5x6 to 225 3x3-4) and I've retained the rest fairly well even while dropping...
