    To be blunt, custom made routines are rarely good from new lifters. You're much better spending your time on a proven, solid routine designed by someone who knows what they're doing.

    If you've just got back into the swing of things, a dramatic weight loss is to be expected for the first week or two. You're restricting calories so you have less carbs & sodium which typically cause...

    Feeling sick/nauseous could be a lot of things. It could be diet, fatigue, sickness, breathing technique or (what is likely) too much volume.

    Is this a custom made routine? I know you said it's...

    Ah, makes sense.

    If you compare the progression on Stronglifts to something like Fierce 5, you're putting more weight on the bar quicker with Fierce 5. Volume isn't everything. Less is sometimes...

    This seems to be a common thought. Not sure where it comes from.

    It's plenty, especially when the weights get heavy enough.

    Fierce 5 consists of plenty of exercises that will also engage your chest. Not just bench press.

    “Hypertrophy range” is a vastly exaggerated term in bodybuilding. All exercises & the correct...

    Gotcha. I actually halved progression as the program suggests once I started to need to reduce the weight and work back up once before (about 5 weeks ago). Thanks for your advice.

    Of course, due to the lack of calories. Would it not be more beneficial to keep the weights as heavy as possible until you hit your goal weight if you more progress is possible? Resetting and working...

    So drop by 15%, work back up. Just to clarify, what do you mean by stabilise?

    I feel like I'm going to hit a genuine stall very soon where I'm no longer capable of adding weight to the bar.

    I think I have reached my limit with the beginner routine. I jumped back on it after two years out of the gym due to Covid.

    I think I have around 15-20lbs left to lose. I've deloaded, reset and I...

    I'll always advocate a slower, controlled bulk. 250-300 over maintenance. Anything over isn't a benefit to you for muscle growth & just elongates the cut. Cutting is miserable so why make it longer...

    Regardless of the program you run, progressive overload is required to stimulate muscle growth. You're aware of the mistake so this time will be different.

    I still think you would benefit more on...

    Bulking and cutting is the cycle. You are correct in saying that you probably bulked too hard. 25% body fat from 10-14% body fat, imo, is excessive. I learned this myself the hard way and I think if...

    In the early stages of the routine, certainly. It starts off light but the progression is fast. Once you start adding weight to the bar and needing to reset/deload, certainly...

    Good job man.

    I think T-Bar row might be the exercise I see most performed incorrectly, or poorly. It's either ego-lifters swinging the weight up or poor range of motion.
