    No, just keep going but adjust your calories down slightly so over the next week you gain another pound and not another 3 pounds. Bear in mind this is all just a guide because even with a weekly...

    I had a back injury and now I exclusively do front squats, which force you to stay upright (you can't cheat), put less pressure on my lower back and force me to use a sensible weight rather than an...

    I had this, but for the most part it went away despite eating more of the same things. Protein bars were a pretty bad culprit but again I still eat them every day, so I wonder if your body adapts...

    For me either cable pushdowns or seated single DB french press.

    I like that with cable pushdowns you can truly go to failure without a spot, whereas with many excercises you can't without getting...

    With regular training the doms (delayed onset muscle soreness) becomes less and less. The first time I lifted again after a 10 year break, I couldn't straighten my arms for a week.

    Same here, I was spending £2 a day on fresh strawberries, now I buy frozen blackberries and raspberries instead. I still buy fresh bananas which are dirt cheap.
