    You might be surprised! :)

    4 quality sets per session of progressively-overloaded work is very effective. Beware the trap of thinking you need to do lots and lots of junk volume to make meaningful...

    Learning to enjoy the process more than to expect the results was helpful for me when I began, not that I'm all that far along now, but that mindset was essential during long stretches of time where...

    It works but it's probably not going to be as efficient as something more along the lines of upper/lower. It also kind of matters what your training level is. If you're beginner or novice, it...

    It might be more exaggerated in my case due to certain leverages which wouldn't apply to someone else, but I've found that the deadlift actually does tax the long head of the tricep quite extensively...

    I'm enjoying the renewed energy here. Seems everyone's in high gear at the moment.

    Quick lunch session for me. Bench was very clearly not fully recovered. Was originally going to go for...

    I like these forums and have profited much from reading here, though mostly I just use it to log my training anymore. Good quality, no-nonsense info for the most part and I like the community. Hope...
  • How wide is your squat stance and what is your foot angle?

    This is something that I still don't quite have a natural feel for. Most of the time, I place my feet just outside of shoulder width and pointed outward approximately 45 degrees each, so that the...

    I'm taller than you by a few inches and weigh a little bit less. I'm clearly somewhat overweight right now even by normal looks standards, but would still need to lose 25 or so pounds to look "fit,"...

    Possibly dumb question but where is the intermediate version of the program? I only see the novice one stickied and it has 10lb/week linear progression on lowers which is completely unsustainable...

    Normally I'm not taken with blondes, but Georgia. Beautiful hair and the confidence of her smile is appealing.

    That's an interesting idea! Never thought of that before. Seems like a good way to keep intensity high on two of the most demanding movements by avoiding excessive fatigue, but without incurring...

    I think I was about 5 years old when they told me he was just a fun symbol for Christmas, which I appreciate and wasn't upset about at the time. Personally, I think trying to knowingly keep them...

    Deadlift (Raw):
    405 x 6, 6, 4, 4 (hit @10 for final two sets, going for 6; grip limiting)

    Squat:
    3 x 5 at 275

    A.S.
    Bench (T&G):
    275 x 5, 5, 5, 4, 4 (hit @10 for final two sets, going for...

    It's all show. Get off of tiktok if you want realistic expectations (and for your mental health overall).

    Even if they're not on gear, it's curated and hyper-tailored to look better than it is,...

    ^^ My general guideline is that if I see someone's catchy-looking face plastered onto the thumbnail, there's a good chance that there's some kind of monetary motivation for the channel at large....

    No, you'd have to regularly train in order to maintain whatever you've gained. It wouldn't take as much effort as getting there in the first place, but 60 pounds of a relatively high quality bulk...

    You could theoretically get "powerlifting abs" which are somewhat visible through even a moderately high amount of fat. I'm not disagreeing with the principle of being at a healthy level of bodyfat...

    @Savior. Your squat's way better than mine anyway, but my legs have been destroyed lately on previously submaximal work, so hopefully that bounces back quickly for us both.

    @Coach, nice! That has...
