    Speaking from not even all that distant experience, do your very best to get out of the mentality that fixates on things like water retention, poop weight, carb cycling, or anything else that isn't...

    If you're doing a high volume of deadlifting on one day, I personally wouldn't additionally do isolation work for any of the several major muscles involved on that same day.

  • How strong should your row be relative to your bench?

    What he's saying OP is that "high weight" is relative to you and your own strength level. That's one reason why 1RM ("one-rep max") numbers are important metrics to establish and keep track of,...

    That many eggs will make you sick.

    They're definitely a food of choice for me, but they shouldn't be eaten deliberately as some kind of carbohydrate substitute. Eat carbs directly; they're a more...

    So what is "exciting" then? Challenge is usually never boring, and even if it's difficult and/or not particularly fun in an immediate sense, I wouldn't call it boredom.
