    The only time I'd load it is if you have an important competition going to happen in a few days, and you just bought it. If it is to supplement regular work outs just do the regular recommended dose.

    The ones that digest well. Nobody should swallow something that binds like concrete, and you feel like you are crapping out a brick. I like the stuff with oatmeal in it.

    Get a good blood work done, and see if you have any deficiencies. No reason to live with a deficiency if it can be corrected.

    I've done creatine for years. It's one of the thing that I will take-- and it's inexpensive. I'm Skeptical about a T booster. I'd look at citrulline instead.

    Many people have the same experience of doing years of squats, only to have their quads dominating leg movements and the rest of their posterior is flat. You may get your hamstring to contribute more...

    You probably should lift like a body builder. He doesn't look that way by doing 100s of bicep curls. You'll need a coach.

    There is nothing inherently wrong with your program. But you've got to find a program that meets your goals and need.

    This isn't a strength program. You could turn it into a period of strength...

    It's difficult to give an answer, without more details. Many people on full body, do the big compounds, are focused on strength, and over time will develop lagging parts, such as shoulders.

    I'd stick with light weight, high rep exercise.

    The primary reason to lift is to look good when you are at 10%. But workouts don't really have control of your calories and losing weight. This is 100% about food consumption and eating too many...

    I sit on the side of the fence that argues you won't build muscle with a caloric deficit. It's hard for some people to build muscle with a surplus. If you diet is reasonable, with only a slight...

    I'm 59.

    I've spent some time with a physical therapist, being educated on how not to destroy your shoulders. I focus a lot of attention on shoulders-- lot of work with cables. I'm very careful...

    There has to be individual variances to this--age, fitness, tolerance for pain. If I were to train with the full body power lifting approach, I'd most likely have a shoulder impingement within a few...

    The term 'Better' gives me a few problems. It's really easy to load a leg press. I haven't seen a belt squat machine that would take that kind of weight.

    Both the position of the feet and the depth of your squat will change the focus of engagement. But many people are wired to utilize their quads. They are quad dominant, similar to what happens with...

    If adding a set of 3 X 8 isn't going to bring the muscle any closer to exhaustion, then it's may not do much. You want it to feel as if you are getting close to dropping the dumbbell. But there is a...

    I OHP heavy barbells two time per week.

    But if you are wanting those caps you see in magazines, that's not how you do it. You don't do that with OHP. You...
