    Yeah I don't agree with that.

    My view is that you do have to walk a line between too much and too little variation...

    Variation can be switching exercises, rep ranges, exertion levels, weight...

    Of course it's possible. Most people have a RMR (resting metabolic rate) of around 1400-1600 calories per day - that's how much you burn without doing anything other than being alive. Even if you are...
  • I like sets across with a fixed number of sets...

    I like sets across with a fixed number of sets (usually 3) because it works well if the last set is near or at concentric failure - it's a guarantee that the previous 2 sets are between 1 and 3 reps...

    My advice is don't try to eat such things - just go cold turkey on that kind of thing. "diet" treats are always disappointing and the main reason treat foods are a problem when losing weight is the...

    That is true although a lesser issue would be spending too much time pursuing something that's not going to have a big impact on your goals. You only need enough flexibility to comfortably perform...

    It's important to understand if you need to stretch and why you would stretch.

    The main reason would be if you can't get into a proper range of motion to do an exercise (like maybe a deep squat)....

    I think I heard this on a podcast (probably strongerbyscience) but that makes it hard to find references... Ah well maybe later :)

    Yes somewhat.

    I have been spoiled by how much better it tastes to make it properly. I can tolerate a teabag tea or french press coffee but instant coffee is just disgusting, I'd rather drink pond...

    Have you tried a deload week? If that makes you feel better, then you were just overreaching.

    If you take every set to concentric failure, you might want to stop doing that and aim to pace / ramp...

    OK, I hadn't realised you are further down the road than most people who post here - but the advice is broadly the same - probably more emphasis on muscle gain.

    Carbs vs. fat is preference - experimenting is the only way to find out. As long as you stick to a calorie target, it's not going make any difference except maybe to how you feel during training.

    I don't recommend water fasting. You probably don't realise that you have more fat and less muscle than you might think. Losing muscle is not an option IMO - and not something a bodyBUILDING forum is...

    No, protein dosing is based on target body mass.

    1.6g of protein per kg is the maximum shown to make improvements but you can still go higher if that's your preference.

    Percentages are not...

    Yes it's slow but 6 months is not much time for those of us that have been training for over a decade. It should be a lifestyle not a quick...
