Can intense bicycling preserve quadricep mass during a cut?

I've got knee problems and am prepping to do a cut. I don't want my quads shrinking. But the only way I can use more weight on my knee is if I don't go down far or if I use assistance once down far. Bicycling seems my best bet, and I can get them burning. If I lose 0.7% of my body weight per...

Is using the stairs in your own home unironically one of the best forms of cardio?

I'm an admittedly fat guy, so results may vary, but I think that going up and down the stairs in your home may legit be one of the best forms of cardio. This evening I decided to put on my heart-rate monitor and see what it would tell me after a flight (15 steps) to get an idea of what (the HR...
