    Hot sauce and mayo I guess are my most used condiments these days. Used to use mustard but had to replace it with mayo because I wasn't getting enough calories and fat in my diet. Unfortunate because...

    A wrist roller would be a good investment, you can work both sides of the forearm, as well as a few other muscles at the same time. Cheap and effective.

    I've been training antagonist muscles paired together each day, once a week, but upping the volume to 16 sets a group since it's for the whole week. Seems to be working well for me.

    Since resources are limited they have to find other ways to get it in. Inmates are forcibly innovative, use a lot of volume, never miss workouts(they don't have much else to do), are peer pressured...

    It's a standing around the world(though it has many other names and ways of being done). Good exercise, not commonly seen much these days. A real shame cause they're pretty effective haha.

    Because full body is hard to get an ideal amount of volume and seems to prioritize frequency, when I do those routines I use the opposite end of the spectrum - going to failure. Allows to stay...

    A muscle that works longer, works harder. But, growth needs more than just that factor in play.

    I was doing upper/lower for months but thought i'd check out a synergist type split for awhile to see how I respond to it:

    Farmer's walks, power cleans, high pulls, power shrugs, monkey rows(safer than uprights and targets same areas) there's a number of ways. Question is if you want to directly work them or not, traps...
