    Thanks man.... this is my third or fourth day of symptoms, which so far is only a cough and stuffiness; no fever, no shortness of breath. I just want to make sure I don't go back too early, even if I...

    THIS... you do NOT want high SHBG because it binds to testosterone and decreases your free (usable) testosterone. I have the same issue. Back in March (I was 56 years old) my Total Testosterone was...

    Agreed... an example is I have found I grow better hitting a body part every 5th day which seems to fly in the face of the latest studies that say higher frequency (hitting a body part 2 or 3 times a...

    I agree with your thoughts. I don't think guys were doing this type of periodization in the 60's, 70's, 80's etc... Mixing up rep ranges, exercises, etc, sure, but this level of complication? Nah

  • Specific to hypertrophy, is Periodization necessary? If not necessary, is it optimal?

    Hey all - what are your thoughts on periodization for HYPERTROPHY? Is it necessary? Is it optimal? I am speaking mostly here about linear VOLUME periodization as described below:

    There is a lot of conflicting information out there regarding "recomping", losing fat and gaining muscle at the same time. What I believe from reading much about the topic, and my own experience, is...

    1. The shape of your bicep is unpredictable. My first surgery 6 years ago (right shoulder/arm) my peak never came back. My last surgery one year ago (left shoulder/arm), my peak came back as good, if...

    all great perspectives, thanks. What I settled on for now is one week (actually twice through my push/legs/pull/off routine) using my regular weights, BUT, half the amount of sets and no going to...

    I agree. Yes, still in a deficit, but I would only deload for 4 or 8 days (which is once or twice through my push/legs/pull split). But you do make a good point... if in a deficit, and a deload is...
  • Deloading.... Intensity vs volume? Your thoughts?

    until today I have never truly deloaded. The closest I came was taking a few days off from time to time when my shoulder hurts. My normal routine is Push/Legs/Pull/Off Repeat. I woke up today and...

    Can you further explain that? I know for me, even at 56, I train hard every workout (unless that's not what you mean). Thanks!

    That's how I feel, but I'm wondering if I'm leaving gains on the floor. FYI - I do a "push / off / pull / legs / off" routine over 5 days, then repeat (day of the week doesn't matter)
