    I don't know what you like eating or when it's convenient for you to eat, my point is that you can be a lot more flexible - and probably need to be if you are going to stick to it long term. Things...

    Seems OK

    Diet seems unnecessarily restrictive. Having a boring doesn't equate to better results and it might results in poor adherence. You also don't need to eat 5 meals unless you especially...

    It's worth noting that I'm doing a hack squat the day after deadlift... full on back squat might be a bit much for your lower back but I know this doesn't affect everyone in the same way. In the past...

    That's an unnecessary workload for a typical novice. I would suggest following something like Fierce 5. As you get more experienced, you will no doubt need to do more volume and more exercises but...

    5lbs in a month sounds like a good result. 1lb a week is about a 500 calorie deficit.

    You probably just fall into the same trap we all did - thinking a few lbs is all you have to lose to get lean....

    If there is a difference of opinion between two things that work, it shows that either
    a) What they are arguing about isn't important
    b) It works for some people but not others.

    The answer is...

    No, 6 days a week and accessories as I fancy it. Often they are geared towards joint health like facepulls, reverse flys, hip abductions - but there are some curls, laterals etc.

    You only overtrain if total weekly volume is excessive for your needs. It is easier to do more volume in total with a higher frequency program but it's not hard to quickly count up the number of sets...

    I don't see why a higher frequency routine should be more complicated. You could start with a brosplit and shuffle the exercises around a bit over the week. Basically the same contents but with each...

    Yep ^

    I like milk protein because it's thicker and feels more substantial when dieting. Whey is effectively a byproduct so I'm not sure why it isn't cheaper than it is.

    Eating processed foods like protein bars is going to make it harder not easier to achieve that goal.

    I don't know what "adonis" is - some fad diet I expect. But ultimately, if you want to lose fat...

    Yeah, you are going to struggle to stick to a diet like that long term. Better to avoid processed foods if possible - which includes protein bars and powders. Only use those to top up protein needs -...

    No, it doesn't ruin your diet for the week, just work out how much it raises your average calorie intake for the week, that will be what determines success or failure.

    You often see the same dogma repeated - because people copy each other. There is an argument to say that time under maximal tension could be representative of hypertrophy but that's not the same as...

    Higher calories help build muscle, lower calories help lose fat. You have to choose what you focus on at any given time. Everyone is looking for the holy grail that lets them do both at the same time...

    Even when losing fat, it's better to do resistance training to prevent muscle loss. Maybe p90x will help with that to an extent but I would prefer to be sure. It's going to be tough to achieve...

    Can you get to a gym? From what I remember, P90X is more for cardio, not so much for muscle gain.

    Have a look at the programs in the sticky threads of the workout programs forum. Don't focus on...

    The classic literary pirate just has an exaggerated UK West Country (Devon & Cornwall) accent - probably dating back to early films of Treasure Island which is set in those locations initially.
