    Yes you can easily sweat out 3 lbs in a few hours.

    Once I did a 7 hour bike ride in hot weather. Drank 15 lbs of fluids while riding and still lost 8 lbs by the time I got home.

    Looks like it is at least almost possible. Just succeeded in doing 10x10 squats, slow descent, 2 minutes rest at 59%. I really don't want to shorten the rest anymore. My heart rate is still high, 2...

    Honestly no one outside of lifting considers picking something up "pulling". No one says "I pulled the sofa off the floor to help my friend move". Took me months to get used to people calling...

    If I lift til failure, and drop the weight 20%, with only 20 seconds to switch the weight, I'll probably get 2 reps.

    As a relative beginner it may be fine - you probably haven't trained your...

    Only had 45 minutes today. Started with 10 sets of bench press and felt pretty crappy after that. Not sure if it's cuz of all the bench press, still recovering a bit from my cold, tired from all the...

    Usually when people say push or pull they are talking about upper body - push means chest and shoulders (you typically push something to work these muscles), pull means back (you typically pull with...

    I doubt anyone has ever got to a lean 250 at 6'-0" natural. That's like 29-30 FFMI. That would be like a real life hulk.

    Also 185 lean depending on height could be big. Hell I still haven't been...

    Too much for what?

    5k in 40 minutes is very low fitness level, and is not at all excessive. I'd suggest increasing pace to at least sub 30 minutes rather than do it every day. Give yourself a...

    First 3 day block I do legs/pull/push:
    On leg day I'm currently doing rack pulls.
    On pull day I do several sets of pull ups, then a few sets of dumbbell rows (because lower back still sore from...

    My go to is pull up variation. If I program deadlift on back day I do that first. I don't feel it working my back except for my lower back, but my pull ups are significantly weaker after deads. Grip...

    Aaron's random stuff

    Keep meaning to post here and keep starting with too much info and deleting it.

    My log is on paper, but I don't have much extra other than "felt good" or "sick today".

    To start I'll write out...

    Yeah idk what happened there. I don't use straps cuz I just haven't really needed them and haven't been lifting very long. Haven't given it serious thought. The only times grip is an issue is if I'm...

    Figure I have to start doing more than doubles. I suck at higher reps (like 3). Went for triples at 405 today. Definitely at my limit. 3rd set, 2nd rep, something went wonky and I got in a weird...

    True, but saying "I'm cutting" seems like a nice way of saying one is dieting without publicly admitting to being fat. People like to say "Oh but you aren't fat!" even if you are absolutely fat....

    Except that every source I find says 60% with 90 seconds rest and slow eccentrics. I doubt I could get even get 2x10 with that protocol. Slowing down the eccentric part makes the sets tons harder for...
  • German volume training, how is it possible?

    I was looking into high volume and found this "program" (more of a rep scheme) called German volume training. 10x10 with 90" rest and slow eccentric phase. Several days rest before going again. This...

    I wouldn't consider a butt target a tripping hazard. I mean, controlling your steps should be much easier than squatting the weight. And the target shouldn't be in your walking path.
