    6 foot at 176lb doesn't sound skinny to me, unless you're big boned or skinny-fat. When I graduated high school (aged 17) I was 6 foot and 135lb - that was skinny!

    At the end of my last cut I was...

    Time to come clean - all my lifts here have been 'cheaty OHP' as recommended by Greg Nuckols. Hence by PB for strict OHP is still 5 x 40kg, because I've been using leg drive for remaining reps as...

    Seems unlikely at your height and weight that that would be possible - I'd be surprised if your TDEE is much over 2000. If you were maintaining a 1500 to 2000 deficit daily, you would be losing an...

    You're going to need to take in more calories than you are presently if you want to gain weight. Trying to do this while 'eating clean' might be too difficult. Eating more meals per day can also make...

    It's totally your call - I don't think there's a right or wrong answer. You could certainly cut for a few more weeks, or you could start bulking now. I would estimate your bf to be about 18-20%...

    Deload week
    7 x 37.5kg
    11 x 37.5kg (AMRAP)
    = 675kg (1488lb)

    1488 + 365930 =

    I would have guessed you bf to be in the low to mid 20s based on your pic, your dexa figure seems high.

    If you can, get a pair of adjustable dumbbells that go up to 100lb each and follow the Fierce 5 dumbbell program.

    I've heard Greg Nuckols talk about it - something like a set of 10 squats at 600lb is anaerobically equivalent to sprinting 600m in 1 minute (which no one in the world can do) and it would be...

    From what I've heard/read, 10 minutes rest might be necessary for someone huge who does something like a set of 10 x 600lb squats. Otherwise 5 minutes should really be the most you're taking for...

    I think the most commonly accepted measure of volume these days is simply the number of hard sets. In that case, volume of sets will often stay the same for a while (deloads aside), while gradually...

    Mate of mine is vegan and much more muscular than me - he can't get enough protein through diet alone and has rice and pea protein shakes.

    If you want a six pack, more protein will help. Consider the following sources:

    Chicken breast
    Egg whites
    Lean white fish
    Low fat Greek yoghurt
    Cottage cheese
    Protein shakes made with water...

    I'd say low to mid 20s - oh and you're exactly the height and weight I was when I started getting into shape. I'm just 1lb heavier now but my body composition is much improved.

    I've seen your other threads and agree with those who say you have an average body for a young person who doesn't lift. Whether or not you're 'skinny-fat' is a matter of opinion, but I don't think...

    Great advice - you'd do well to follow it. I also agree with the previous poster that you should enjoy your Valentine's Day dinner.

    I"ve had some success doing IF - I chose an eating window that allowed me to have dinner at home with my family. It's generally easiest to fast when you are too busy to think about it, such as at...

    Even that's a bit low, especially on a cut. The 0.7g/lb minimum recommended on the sticky thread works out to 1.54g/kg. I think 2g/kg is a pretty good target while cutting.
