    I can’t speak for kettlebells as I never used them. For me personally, they seem better suited to a gym than a home gym simply because the gym can have a number of different sizes to choose from....

    Absolutely. 12kg won’t get you too far but you can buy more plates for them assuming they are adjustable. Lots of dumbbell exercises out there that cover all the muscles. I would still keep an eye...

    Don’t do Option B. If you really have been at 1400 calories during this cut without lifting chances are you are losing quite a bit of muscle along with fat. Don’t subject your body to another month...
  • If it were me, I would forget doing another month...

    If it were me, I would forget doing another month of cutting and start your slow bulk now. Losing a few percent more body fat is not going to buy you much in the big picture other than making your...

    My sense from your responses is that you are very worried about fat gain. If you are serious about gaining muscle you have to make peace with the fact that you most likely will gain at least some fat...

    I may be in the minority but honestly was hoping BG3 would be similar in gameplay (and even in graphics) to the preceding games and carry on the bhaalspawn storyline including character import and...

    With a sound program and diet about 1-2lbs of lean mass gain per month is possible. Realistically you will also add a bit of fat in the process so you definitely need to mentally accept that is part...

    I don’t stress much on rest times as I don’t think they have much effect other than changing the overall duration of the workout. As long as you hit your goal volume I don’t think you are going to...

    It’s actually 70% off on steam right now so this is the time to get it if you want something new.

    I played all of them from Civ 1 onwards but personally just couldn’t get into 6. I think I spent...

    Your shoulders are probably the weak link in the push-up movement right now so that is where you are feeling it.

    Other exercises - I would throw in a few more leg exercises such as reverse lunges,...

    I don’t think it stands out too much. Assuming you are including movements like dumbbell bench press variations it is probably just your genetics. If you are really concerned you can try a month or...

    You first have to change your mindset. You WILL gain some fat as part of the process of building muscle. Even doing everything right on a lean bulk of 1-2lbs there will be a portion of that as...

    Volume is only one of many variables to consider when building muscle and is honestly not the most important. That would be adhering to the principle of progressive overload. Other very important...

    Yes, that is a good starting point. Monitor your weight and if you are losing more than 1% of your total body weight each week up the calories a bit.

    If you have a sturdy table you can try inverted rows underneath it. A bit awkward but doable (videos online that can demonstrate).

    If you can make the bodyweight exercises challenging enough to get to within a few reps of failure without an insane number of reps you should be fine. Just ensure you keep your protein up, calorie...

    Unfortunately there is no accurate way to measure body fat. I wouldn’t get too hung up on percentages but rather focus on what the mirror tell you.
    If you need something for a baseline there is a...

    Anything over 0.7g/lb of bodyweight should be fine so aim for 125+ grams a day of protein.

    That is too large a deficit. If your maintenance is 2500 I would have aimed for 1800-2000. It is possible you are miscalculating your intake or maintenance calories so your deficit may not be that...

    Ask your parents to get you a doctor’s appointment with the family GP if you have one. Agonizing pain after 5 hours on your feet is not good at your age.
