    I have abused caffeine pretty heavily since before I even went through puberty.

    A little less nowadays though, being out of college. Probably 200-300 mg/day.

    I think he's referring to a straight 5x5 using the same weight for each set, which is also what I had in mind, where weight is not variable.

    What are your stats OP?

    I have a feeling you're probably not regularly lifting with any great intensity, even if you're "at the gym" a lot.

    Why do you think it is that so many people "get away" with eating such high cholesterol on a routine basis? Not saying it's literally everyone of course (and I would need to read the medical...

    Sounds like probably the most enjoyable way to restrict calories in my book, but I wouldn't want to go without any vegetables.

    Starkist Tuna (water), Beachcliff Sardines (hot sauce and mustard are my favorite), and I have switched to eating my chicken fresh

    I like them as a test of strength endurance. Not sure that line of reasoning makes complete sense. RPE doesn't have to increase so much between sets. You can be at RPE 8 on set one, 8.5 on the second...

    I would argue a more full-body approach is better suited for an intermediate-advanced trainee, and beginners should isolate their training more specifically.

    EDIT: Actually, without a context of...

    I'm with EC, this is a pretty easy question.

    Except I am going to take an unpopular opinion for the sake of variety: no squat, partly because they're both nominally lower body exercises for the...

    Duly noted, thanks man.



    Thank you, although they are certainly slow at a 10 minute average... lol

    I might try this for a couple weeks and report back on any new challenges or difficulty...

    AND you've got to be fairly lean for it to show up nicely. Building substantial muscle without getting fat, or even building it with fat and then cutting down, are both long-term, painstaking...

    You mean in addition to running or by themselves? I want to protect my deadlift strength and definitely need to up my squat number. I run a 5 mile stint every couple of weeks or so but am concerned...

    I agree with this: never felt a pinch or pain in my lower back on my heavier deadlifts without a belt. With careful form I don't think they're necessary at sub-competitive weight.

    To what extend has running affected anyone's leg exercises in the actual lifting, carbs or not?

    I think doing them on the same day would make a noticeable difference but probably not especially...

    Interesting... I just know that the when first getting used to a new weight for 5 x 5 or 4 x 8, I can feel the soreness deep in the muscle and it tends to last a while (sometimes even an entire...

    Curious, has your intensity improved in a linear fashion? I would think that you will acclimate to the same volume/weight after a while of working with it, but as a competitive bodybuilder that...

    Is it true that you're really hungry all the time at that lean? As impressive as it is, that doesn't sound very desirable honestly, especially when ~15% is still relatively lean and looks quite good...
