    I don’t stress much on rest times as I don’t think they have much effect other than changing the overall duration of the workout. As long as you hit your goal volume I don’t think you are going to...

    It’s actually 70% off on steam right now so this is the time to get it if you want something new.

    I played all of them from Civ 1 onwards but personally just couldn’t get into 6. I think I spent...

    Your shoulders are probably the weak link in the push-up movement right now so that is where you are feeling it.

    Other exercises - I would throw in a few more leg exercises such as reverse lunges,...

    I don’t think it stands out too much. Assuming you are including movements like dumbbell bench press variations it is probably just your genetics. If you are really concerned you can try a month or...

    You first have to change your mindset. You WILL gain some fat as part of the process of building muscle. Even doing everything right on a lean bulk of 1-2lbs there will be a portion of that as...

    Volume is only one of many variables to consider when building muscle and is honestly not the most important. That would be adhering to the principle of progressive overload. Other very important...

    Yes, that is a good starting point. Monitor your weight and if you are losing more than 1% of your total body weight each week up the calories a bit.

    If you have a sturdy table you can try inverted rows underneath it. A bit awkward but doable (videos online that can demonstrate).

    If you can make the bodyweight exercises challenging enough to get to within a few reps of failure without an insane number of reps you should be fine. Just ensure you keep your protein up, calorie...

    Unfortunately there is no accurate way to measure body fat. I wouldn’t get too hung up on percentages but rather focus on what the mirror tell you.
    If you need something for a baseline there is a...

    Anything over 0.7g/lb of bodyweight should be fine so aim for 125+ grams a day of protein.

    That is too large a deficit. If your maintenance is 2500 I would have aimed for 1800-2000. It is possible you are miscalculating your intake or maintenance calories so your deficit may not be that...

    Ask your parents to get you a doctor’s appointment with the family GP if you have one. Agonizing pain after 5 hours on your feet is not good at your age.

    How much do you weigh? A weight loss is relative to your size so 5lbs is not really that much in the big picture of you weigh 200lbs+. As mentioned, fat loss occurs throughout your body so not sure...
  • Yeah, you don’t need to worry about one-off days...

    Yeah, you don’t need to worry about one-off days of being over or under. Your body doesn’t “reset” at midnight...it is a continuum. As long as it generally balances out over weeks you will be fine.

    Which country do you live in? The medical focus of the world is somewhat occupied on other things at the moment. Depending on how it is dealing with the pandemic things like elective surgeries may...

    You figure you lost 20lbs of muscle in 4 weeks? That is probably how much you would need to lose to drop your RMR by over 100 calories. I have no idea how anyone would be able to measure that small...

    Another option I like is 2 working sets 1-2 reps short of failure. You still see some of the benefits shown with multiple sets but don’t go too far into the diminishing returns. Also, I always do...

    Done this as well. Works fine for most exercises except rows.

    I don’t think you need to do full body everyday to maintain strength. You are not going to lose much strength with even a week off.

    Recovery is important especially if you are taking a lot of...
