    That sucks that your training is getting interrupted EC. Maybe it'll end up being a needed break from routine to get back into high gear when you can get more settled.

    So the insulin/blood sugar levels are not particularly significant factors to time for training? Glycogen storage is the primary fuel for anabolic strength training, but does it not give an edge to...

    That is fair and I think your reasoning makes sense, just not how I would personally go about it; again I think it's a difference in mentality/approach. Don't want to come across arrogantly, either,...

    We've had essentially this same conversation before. I take this position for one primary reason: all else being equal, lean mass counts for more positively than fat does negatively. It is harder to...

    I'd recommend the gradual bulk. Better get big and strong with some fat to lose than trim down and get stuck spinning your wheels.

    Alternating pushes and pulls between individual sets is a solid approach for a number of reasons. While it falls on the smaller side of the 80/20 fence, there are some definite advantages to this...

    I like them a lot.

    My bench is more chest dominant anyway so I find them a great finisher.

    It's surprising too when you realize that most of these can be had from literally just a chicken breast and a single whey shake. The latent amount in the rest of your food takes you the rest of the...
