    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...

    Thanks man!... interesting stuff (I've seen these roundtables and others, and it is what prompted me to raise the question to the guys in this group who have been at it for many years). I still...

    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...

    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)
  • Periodization: Necessary? Optimal? or just individual preference?

    Hello all - what are your thoughts on periodization? Periodization defined here is planned periods (mesocycles) to vary variables; for example 3 weeks low volume, 3 weeks medium volume, 3 weeks...

    This brings up a great point which I find is strongly debated (periodization). I will start another thread to get some dedicated discussion.
