    What about short vs tall? I've got short legs and short arms, lockout is at my balls. I pull sumo cuz of that long torso. I'm also only 5'-10" (really 5'-9.5"). I'd have thought I'd be good at...

    On low squat numbers:

    Just theorizing from someone with a very low squat relative to internet numbers. I just can't imagine how someone could squat anywhere near deadlift - DL is merely picking...

    My gym is on thin ice. They got fined $1000 last week when some inspector found 5 people working out inside. "Inside" is a HUGE space. Probably safer for 5 people to be in that space than in the...

    I don't think you need isolations unless your compounds are missing something.

    My preferred isolations are lateral raises for side delts and reverse flys (or you can do face pulls) for rear delts....

    Been a year or so. I think I just kept my normal splits (PPL variation) and only did the volume once a week for each exercise. I'm a "wing it" kinda guy though. Probably didn't need the GVT, but it...

    When I did GVT it was just squat, bench, OHP, and pull ups.

    Have you tried 10x10 with 90 seconds rest to failure on the last sets? Do you really want to do that twice in one workout?
    Just gonna...

    I had almost exact calculations by using the "sedentary" calories burned estimates (1.2x BMR IIRC) and adding all my activities. Every walk, hike, bike ride, weight session, even add a couple hundred...

    I meant 350 per day surplus. Apound a week (500 surplus per day) is a bit too much fat, and half pound a week (250 per day) is tough to measure accurately, but may be a bit better in theory.

    You need to gain weight. While lifting, not during no-lift COVID.


    Incorrect.

    Eat 350 calories per week more than you burn, while consistently lifting. You should see a few pounds in the first...

    Had really bad forearm pain the last few workouts after a 365 squat PR.

    Taking a few days off and another few easy.

    I may consider not building up to double and single on my squat high rep day....

    Between compounds I rest minimum 3 minutes. Between compound and isolation it probably takes at least 3 minutes to rack the weights and move to the next station anyway.

    Rest between sets isn't...

    Btw, goals are max weight in squat bench deadlift. I could post my whole routine but probably not gonna help much. Considering going even lighter and slower on back day. Stricter slower rows.
