    Carbs are an individual thing. I use keto when I diet and don’t find that it has a negative effect on my training. You will adapt and the soreness from lifting sessions will go away. The best way to...

    V-strom 650. They are a fun Swiss Army knife bike that will do about anything but excel at nothing, other than being ridiculously reliable. Can tour, hit dirt (a bit heavy), great commuter, fun...

    My knees sound like firecrackers for my first few sets of squats. No pain so not a problem. Carbon dioxide gas can build up under connective tissue and the popping is usually that. As far as the leg...

    I’m 40 now and don’t consider that old, but have had to made adjustments for recovery and joint health. I can’t just go beat myself to a pulp 4X per week, so periodization seems more important. I’ve...

    Pretty broad question. Volume, frequency and intensity are the main variables. I do more than a single set on an exercise, usually 3-5 working sets. Most work sets are near form failure, so I am...

    Anything is better than nothing. You will get out of training what you put into it. Lunges, step-ups, good mornings etc can be done without a rack. Probably not as effective, but better than nothing.

    You can gain plenty of LBM coming from an untrained state and running a deficit with higher body fat. The only way you should run a surplus with higher bodyfat is if you don’t care about aesthetics...

    I just bought a new Tacoma a couple months ago, and that has more “tech” than I need. Push button start, tons of nanny safety devices etc. just seems like a lot of expensive future repairs. Not on...

    Squats have a good bit of carryover to DLs so I wouldn’t abandon training them and trying to progress them. Use the friendly competition to push yourself on DLs and RDLs. That said If you really just...
