    that is a bit daft of a design lol. Like they acknowledge that u might need to go from 150 to 155. Then from 155 to 160. But then u have to take a leap of faith up to 170 lol

    6 weeks is nothing. Better to make a year plan or similar. If u take the phrase "progressive overload".....the key word is "progressive"...like, increasing GRADUALLY over time

    I think its just popularity. Everyone will bench. Squatting is also pretty popular. Everyone wants delts so OH pressing is fairly popular. but back muscles tend to literally be on the back burner

    I dont think one can micromanage calories and/or exercise beyond a certain point. So in my case I "track" everything I eat but how do I KNOW that the labeling on the package is exact? Well in fact I...

    I often have issues on the first rep too. usually on bench, incline, squats.
