    I don't know but I regularly take walks of around 20 mins maybe 4-5 times a week. I doubt it makes much difference to my body composition goals but I like walking in nature, that's the only reason....

    Have a look at All Pros Simple Beginners routine in the sticky threads. It has quite a measured progression method with only one heavy day per week - other days being medium and light days. This can...

    Pictures would help

    If not, post height, weight, age etc. Max lifts would help, these can be given as rep maxes - e.g. 10 reps of squats with 100kg.

    True but if you think about shoulder exercises in general, there are lots of alternative presses and such like. Also variations can mean different rep ranges and levels of intensity (RIR) in each...

    It's stupid to assign percentages to it.

    If you want a pseudo mathematical answer, you need to apply the Pareto principle to both lifting and nutrition - do the simple basics in both disciplines...

    Probably not much at all.

    If they 'work', it's because they either provide a slight stimulant like caffeine or they help suppress your appetite slightly.

    My experience with my own body is that...

    The general way of doing it is to train your entire body (i.e. all major muscle groups) with weights and eat enough protein rich foods (mostly wholefood or at least minimally processed stuff) to gain...

    If it triggers your appetite like a lot of 'junk' foods do so that you eat more calories than you burn then yes it will make you gain weight.

    Injury risk is also relative to how strong you are, not (just) related to absolute weight.

    It's a good question but we also know that you don't have to go right to failure. There is a tendancy to take a general principle and apply the "more is better" argument which doesn't always work in...

    Re: the brosplit question, I have a theory that waiting a week might make the stimulus fresher - so perhaps it would take longer to make progress at first but it would keep working for longer too.

    Maybe a jump in weight from glycogen, food in transit and water uptake. But 1lb of fat is still going to take 3500 surplus calories just like it always does.

    I don't think you are gaining and then losing muscle, I think the amount of muscle just stays the same and any differences in size are down to bodyfat (which accumulates on chest and limbs not just...

    OK - but what about progress from the end of one bulk to the end of the next bulk? If there is none, you probably didn't gain muscle.
