    That's an interesting connection, actually. More so if other SM platforms also crashed.

    Same here. Never used it though I made one for work back when. Always seemed silly, trawling for attention from the digital world, showing off to strangers. Let FB die.

    Preference or mental focus. Some people want to train "in the zone" and if they have a day for a certain type of training then it's easier for them to stay in that "mode, shift gears," whatever.

    Yes, they're both simple programs and it wouldn't be a problem to mix their protocols for those lifts, for now.

    Yeah it's a characteristic of the modern world, that prosperity is tied to superfluity. Whether that's good or bad is hard to judge objectively. (We won't have advancement if we don't have some...

    Economic necessity and also cultural norms. Nearly every Thai family has a farm somewhere, small or big. Rubber trees, fruit, rice, vegetables, etc. There's not really "unemployment" because...

    Actually, fitness is really popular here, even in rural towns. Gym, or cycling, or running. Also, many of the jobs are quite physically demanding: either farming or construction work with few...

    ^^ Yes, real data is important. Maybe also a comparison of pics across cultures.

    Anecdotally, every time I see American news (I mostly watch that because I'm American) most of the people look...

    Not ranked:

    The Shining, no doubt. There is a lot of subtlety in that film which is really interesting. Bald black Halloran vs. bald white Grady, Jack and Danny in the middle.

    If your DL is twice your squat then you should aim for that 90% figure just to become more balanced. After a while you probably won't care what the exact ratio is.

    Increase pressing frequency, and use slightly lighter weights for more volume. Grinding at or near failure for too long is counterproductive.

    ^^
    One arm bench press
    One arm fly
    One leg RDL
    Split squat

    Also some kind of trunk rotation / twist movement would be very beneficial. Almost all of the common lifts ignore this movement...

    6- focus. I only pay attention to the weights. Anything else either I don't notice or it adds focus.

    Add a protein shake or big bowl of cereal + protein scoop before bed. Should be around an extra 400 cals / 30 grams of protein. See what happens after a month.

    How are you measuring your calories and macros? A scale or eyeball? Maybe you're not getting as many cals as you think.
