    How does the program assign deloads? That should be in there somewhere.

    Can you show pics of the gym here, or is that forbidden in the political climate?

    Lifting will not interfere with your studies. Worst thing is you'd show up to class sweaty after the gym, or you...

    Which type of lifting do you enjoy, Jax? These descriptions of each sound pretty negative.

    Oly weightlifting has the most class, I'd say, at least on the platform. Strongman is cool but...

    CF seems to me like an overzealous cult of sorts. When you're in, you sell your soul to fake enthusiasm and over-the-top motivation. Just my impression. The real risks of injury are one of the...

    lol

    Excuse me, that sounded rude.

    You sound very inexperienced in real life. Put your balls on and go do something. If you can't handle it, then learn how to prioritize your goals.

    Probably the carryover effect isn't specific to particular exercises, and it's more a result of training movement patterns and certain muscle groups. There'd be a spectrum of non-specificity where...

    MYO reps or density rows to failure every set are pretty tough unweighted.

    Good to know, so we could give more direction to science-based threads like this one. The only caution I see is that some YTers just try to sound smart in front of a general populace without really...

    Muay Thai is timing, skill, and quick bursts of power. Very different from bench pressing IMO. But it's a fair example comparing different athletes from different sports. Similar to the...

    ^ This. "I'm back" with 1 post count isn't saying much, and most regular posters now aren't actually recommending 3x5 routines anyway. RTFF.

    Training to failure consistently is actually counterproductive as it causes too much fatigue without enough time for adequate recovery. Nothing really wrong with training to failure for 1 week and...

    That's DUP, and it's an effective way of programming intermediate level progression. Try it out if the LP grind isn't working anymore.

    Breathe at the bottom, between reps.
