    I wear mine whenever I'm lifting heavy on either squat or deadlift, and I determine what is heavy based on how it feels to me. It doesn't hurt to wear it at any point, but I don't prefer wearing one...

    This program doesn't specify the kind of squats to do. Does this mean that we can choose?

    I'm looking for some advice to maximize glute development without straying from the program. I assume that...

    Get your protein and fat minimums, I'd recommend budgeting for over the minimum so you have some wiggle room. ~150 grams of protein and 40-50g of fat should be good. Then fill in the rest with carbs....

    She feels like her hamstrings are taking over, perhaps a little quads, too. I know "feels" is an unreliable indicator, but it's all she's got. I know you can't hip thrust without using the glutes,...
