    No deadlifts, just pull ups, dumbbell bench press, overhead press, bicep curls, tricep extensions, lateral raises, and dumbbell shrugs.

    200 pounds for 5 sets of 5. How deep is deep? My ass is definitely below my knees.
  • I haven't lost strength in my squat, or size in my legs, despite no longer squatting.

    I haven't squatted, truly squatted, in at least a year. Not split squats, not anything. But I remember what my squat for reps was when I did do squats. And I recently had an opportunity to try it...
  • I need leg exercises that won't exacerbate my anterior pelvic tilt.

    Seems like squats are out, unless I do them upside down on a leg press machine with my lower back pressed firmly against a bench or something. And I don't own a leg press machine.

    Just lowering...

    This is Fierce 5?

    I can't find where it says what to do if you aren't progressing. I see what it says to do if equipment limitations...

    I do get at least 8 hours of sleep, is that enough?

    As for the eating, I'm only 5'6". Right now I'm trying to cut, but back when I wasn't I ate about 3,000 calories daily, rounding up a little....

    I'm on a program. I'm doing the Dumbbell Stopgap. But the thing is, the weight isn't getting easier to lift. And it's been many months. That's what I mean when I ask "What progress should I be at?"...

    But what if I'm not progressing? Something must be wrong with my training. Maybe I'm training too soft. Maybe I'm training too hard. How do I know which one to bet on?

    As in, suppose I assume I'm...

    Per side? But a 405 pound deadlift isn't intermediate, that's advanced level lifting, especially for multiple reps.

    I can already do that. And I did try eating at a surplus, I didn't notice any muscle growth. I moved on to cutting instead. But now I'm tired all the time. And I don't know if I'm overtraining or not.
  • I can already do that, but I'm 5 foot 6.

    I can already do that, but I'm 5 foot 6.

    Are you saying I need to be able to overhead press 1 plate, bench 2 plates, squat 3 plates, and deadlift 4 plates? A "plate" weighing 45 pounds?
  • How do you know if you're over/undertraining without knowing how big you should be?

    It's easy to know how much to eat. It's easy to know how much to lift. You can even get your hormones checked to see what levels you should be at. But the gains themselves, how do you know what...
  • Can you still build muscle if you're low t?

    I think I'm low t. Body building is about building up more muscle than you break down. Here I sit, over 2 hours after lifting, still wobbly. Still feeble. And I wonder if I worked harder than my body...

    I thought there was a rule of thumb about insulin sensitivity at a certain body fat percentage. What do you need to know? Right now I'm somewhere between 15% and 18%.
  • At what body fat percentage can I stop cutting and go back to a normal lifting diet?

    Every morning I wake up feeble. And I've been getting lots of sleep recently, so I'm pretty sure it's my diet.

    Nah, I've been off pre-workout, much to the detriment of my performance, for a while now.

    Yes. So you might think it has something to do with the protein. But I drink protein shakes every day. I don't drink more of them on my workout days, I drink the same amount of protein shakes and...
  • I'm tired and gassy on days I lift, is my body digesting my food properly?

    Usually when you have strong and chronic farts, it's because of some gastrointestinal thing. My fear is that my food is failing to digest and I'm not synthesizing protein. Has anyone ever heard of...
