    I assume, not enough volume. It's 3 sets 1 week and 6 sets the next week. Maybe that's enough for some people, I dunno.

    and yeah I get it, it's a beginner program. It's not meant to have crazy...

    I feel you on the lack of training volume for chest with F5. But if that's your only reason for such a huge change to the program, you might want to rethink.

    Why not just add more chest work to...

    This might sound silly, but it's what helped me with sleep. Just get up earlier, seriously. After doing this for a week or two, you'll be flippin tired at a normal hour and start going to bed earlier.

    1. Any curl, it doesn't matter.
    2. Supersets, no rest (or very minimal rest) between sets and I believe it's 2 sets of each exercise, not 3. Bi and tri are on different days. It's Biceps/abs and...

    You likely started your OHP a bit too high. Understandable as it's tricky figuring out starting weights when you first begin. I did the same with Pendlay row. I think the program states, after stall,...

    Some great replies, thank you. Given me some to think about. As I said, I don't like program hopping, so I'll stick with it for maybe a couple deload cycles and reassess where I'm at and what I feel...

    Good points across the board. Fatigue seems to be the most obvious concern here, which I agree with.

    As for air2fakie, I didn't provide a lot of personal info, because I was mostly thinking in...
  • Working same muscle group on consecutive days.

    Working out the same muscle group on consecutive days. I've always been under the impression that we should avoid this. But why? Does it prevent proper recovery? Increase accumulative fatigue?...

    I'm currently recomping. It's a bit slower (I guess?), but that's fine by me. I prefer it to the bulk/cut cycles most prefer. Lifts are going up, muscle is increasing at a good rate, waist size is...

    My personal experience is that most of my imbalances are correcting with just barbel movements. Just be patient and keep on top of your form. I have noticeable lat disparities and a wee bit in the...

    I love my jump roping. I use it for a quick warm up before lifting, post lifting cardio, with some body weight exercises alternated in, mix it up with heavy bag work and I enjoy learning tricks.

    Is Instagram absolute garbage.

    A lot of my favourite fitness Youtubers post to Instagram. Am I missing out on anything?

    I've always been of the opinion that Instagram was only good for teets and bumbum, little more. Am I wrong?
