    This is not a knock on him, but that is so incredibly different than what he recommends here: https://journals.lww.com/nsca-scj/Abstract/2020/10000/Mesocycle_Progression_in_Hypertrophy__Volume.2.aspx...

    Makes more sense to me to put plates/blocks/something else under your heels, figure out which plate width is ideal, and then order weightlifting shoes with a similar sized heel. Then you'll never...

    The paused sets are a lot longer but I haven't come across anything to indicate that is beneficial for hypertrophy compared to a non-paused set done to a similar RIR.

    Back curvature can come from trying to keep a straight bar path down and up when you do not have the mobility to do so with your current stance. If at the bottom you are having buttwink that can make...

    Yep. Try it for a couple of weeks and see how it goes. If you choose a weight that is like a 10 rep max and stick to doing 7-8 reps (do the concentric as explosively as possible) or so that will...

    If you like your current set up you can probably just keep doing the same thing but stop 2-3 reps shy of failure. For hypertrophy somewhere in the 10-20 set per week range seems to do a good job;...

    How many of your bench/dip sets are close to failure? Are they all typically within 1-2 reps of failure? You may have simply gotten to the point where you need to move away from linear progression...
