    Gaining strength and mass doesn't happen in a linear fashion, and you definitely need to gauge your body and adjust to how you feel on a given day. You won't break PRs in every workout.
    Until you...

    You're wrong and simply disagreeing with a post doesn't make you right.

    See how easy that was?
  • I definitely disagree with the others who state...

    I definitely disagree with the others who state what you feel is irrelevant, that you should just lift. Especially the benchpress is an exercise that you can gain very little from (chest wise) if not...

    I don't think 1RM is very useful if you want to gain muscle: as long as you get stronger in whatever rep range you typically lift in, you're good. Everything else is just over analyzing the matter.

    There is no way Kai is Olympia material.

    If it weren't for Yates back in the 90s Ray, Levrone, Wheeler&Co. could probably have won an Olympia each.

    Being nice, and being too nice, are separate things.

    Beyond muscle memory, yes.
    The only reason you have muscle and strength is because the body has adapted to that need (=lifting weights). If you stop lifting the body will adapt to that as well by...

    Just standing in the semi-relaxed pose, Dillett looked like Mr. Olympia.
    It was when he was flexing that that extra "pop" was missing compared to other competitors at the time.

    You can absolutely injure yourself lifting weights; just ask Yates or Levrone, or check all the posts in this forum of people complaining about injuries.
    If you are genuinely not in the risk of...

    B should more or less catch up once he starts eating well.
    However, there is also the issue of a unconditioned muscle responding better than a "trained" one, in fact there are whole routines based...

    You should clearly be able to distinguish between hunger that stems from boredom/habit of overeating, and from working out; as long as it's the latter, give the body all the calories it asks for...

    Keeping the muscle gains (as opposed to strength gains) should be significantly less effort than getting them in the first place (unless you were on juice when you gained them, of course).

    Some days you will look fuller than others due to natural body fluctuations (you store more water in your body), in the same way that your body weight will vary from one day to the next....

    At the end of the day, genetics rule. There is only so much you can do to get around that.
    I would focus on the exercises that you genuinely feel in your pecs, without cheating. Go as heavy as can...

    Some strength, yes. But if you truly go all out on those reps there is no way you could keep that up for long, as you'll fry your CNS quickly on such a routine.

    If you don't go all out there are...

    Body weight exercises and some rubber bands can go a long way as a temporary stop gap. No reason to go completely cold turkey.

    There is little intrinsic value in doing pull ups for the sake of it, you'd be better served by pulldowns to gain the required strength to eventually do pull ups without too much cheating.

    It will severely restrict the oxygen supply, and virtually make any kind of significant effort (think squats, pulldowns, etc) very difficult.
