maintenance exercise calories

to bulk it says to eat 500 calories over maintenance. my maintenance at a sedentary level is 2280. Would it actually be higher since im lifting weights and technically not sedentary?

How many calories can you really spend biking?

I have a mountain bike with road tires, and I usually bike to the gym. That's about 12 minutes through the city at an average speed of 25km/h (15.5mi). I do push it a little but by the time I get to the gym I'm not wasted. My Endomondo app claims that I spent 280kcal, which gives 1400kcal per hour....

Thumbs up What Do Y’all Work Out on MONDAY?

I’ve started moving away from chest day mondays because benches at my school are overly crowded and why does it matter I do chest Monday? Is there any benefit besides getting a large muscle group out of the way in the start of the week? I like doing shoulders on Monday :P

I have been back using a 5 x 5 system for the last few months.Every time I use this setup, I have an enormous energy surge throughout my whole mind & body. I don't ever experience this with my other routines ex. 4 sets of 8 or 3 sets of 10-12. Seems like everytime I get around to doing heavier...

Why don't people do 7 reps, 9 reps, 11 reps, etc for a set?

It's always either "x" sets of 6 reps, 8 reps, 10 reps, 12 or 15 reps. What's wrong with "x" sets of 7, 9, 11, 13 or 14 reps? Lol, just wondering.

Squatting With Long Femurs

I've been watching the Exercises section ever since I figured out how to squat with my long femurs. I see a lot of "help my squat!" threads that follow a common theme: OP: "can you check my squat form? Also, why does my center of gravity keep going onto my toes?" OP's video: a squat above...

Shoulders and legs on same day or split into separate days?

So my current routine has me working my shoulders and legs on the same day. However, whenever I do legs first I'm too puffed out to do anything else. I've experimented before by alternating each leg and shoulder exercise (e.g. leg, shoulder, leg, shoulder...) and found that I was able to finish all...

Question Question on Form and Linear Progression

I'm running Fierce Five novice routine and making good progress. However I have a question concerning the progression and exercise form side of things. I know that as you move up in weight you should not alter your form in order to allow you to lift more weight. True progression is when you use...

How do you train calves?

Currently I'm training my calves four times a week at the end of my workout by simply doing 4 sets of 20 reps, which is enough to make me really feel the burn by the end of it. Is this too much or not enough? I've heard on the internet that training calves more than 3 times a week is too much but...

Question I can bench more than I can squat? [form check]

Title says it all. I can bench far more than I can squat, so I'm looking for feedback on my Squat form. Here's a video of 85x5. It might look easy, but my knees were killing me afterward. I don't think I can add more weight without my form completely breaking down. I've already noticed that I'm...

Ridiculous Gains in Deadlift

So I've been searching around for some way to judge my progress against other beginners to see if I'm on the right track and something has become alarmingly apparent to me that I have no explanation for. So I used to do upper body a lot in college (almost never did lower body) so I expected my...

Dumbells vs Bench Press

Hey everybody, I have been taught that in general dumbbell press is more effective for development of the chest due to the greater range of motion so I have mostly been focusing on dumbbells as I am working toward hypertrophy (though I do mix things up with some incline bench press). I have...

Improving side raises?

Okay so when I train my shoulders I really enjoy doing lateral side raises with dumbbells. The problem is I'm struggling to increase the weight on this exercise. I've been stuck on the same weight for weeks. Is there a way to increase this with other exercises. As soon as I increase the weight by...
