    I've never bought them and never would. I usually just hard boil 10 eggs at the start of the week (2 per work day). Shell them and salt them on the day I'm going to eat them.

    This thread reminds me of the situation I was in after 3-5 months doing Fierce 5. I was able to squat 5 x 60kg (132lb) with clean form, but the last set was an RPE 10. I increased the weight by the...

    Don't bother tracking calories burned from exercise and don't eat those calories back - that just complicates matters, not to mention that it's likely to be highly inaccurate. That amount of cardio...

    Just remembered I haven't been including my warm up sets. This is from the start of the year:

    Just don't get discouraged when you find you're not quite as strong when you up the volume. Provided everything else in in place, you should get some hypertrophy, which will result in increased...

    Firstly, you look great, probably better than 95% of women your age.

    Secondly, you're not skinny-fat - maybe a little skinny, but not remotely fat. If you're not happy with your body now, the best...

    What's your gender, height current weight and age?

    If you're not losing weight, you're not eating under your TDEE.

    If OP was older and that BF % was accurate, I would recommend cutting. He should be in his prime muscle building years and could still be growing, so I'd lean more towards eating at maintenance and...

    Research shows that up to 1% of bodyweight per weight can be lost without losing muscle. That's a good upper limit for most people. The obese can get away with faster weight loss, up to about 1.5% of...

    I'll second Eric Helms 4-day bodybuilding program - ran it for 6 months and really enjoyed it. I had to switch to intermediate progression for nearly all of my lifts, but the volume seemed to be...

    I tend to agree with all of this. Some people need more volume to grow.

    Last year I dramatically increased my chest volume by doing a push up challenge, where I did over 3000 push ups in 3 weeks....

    You're discounting genetics. Some people bench 225lb the first time they touch a barbell and can get to 315lb with LP. I wasn't so lucky - LP got me as far as 125lb for 3 sets of 5, then I stalled...

    This. Biceps make up about 3-4% of the total muscle mass in the body. If you don't find they're getting enough stimulation from your pulling work, you can do some curls, but it should be a low...

    Yes, but that shouldn't be too surprising - it's normal to drop water weight at the start of a diet. I nearly always drop two pounds in my first week at a deficit, then settle in to an average of a...

    Weekly average weight is up 200g as well, so this wasn't an aberration. My adherence has mostly been good, but I had a boozy, indulgent weekend that undid the rest of my good work.

    I'd argue that's not exactly what Davis prescribes when he talks about warm up sets. He says warm up sets should not be fatiguing, which I think means they shouldn't count towards volume. If your...
