    Yeah, this was supposed to be a 1 RIR week, but I was a bit too proud to let my reps drop too low. I imagine I'll need longer rest when I get stronger, but for now 2-and-a-half minutes is all I need,...

    Another bench session today. After warming up I was hoping to hit 9 x 57.5kg with 1 RIR, but actually got 8 reps with 0 RIR, so I'm still a bit off my peak strength, though that's not surprising, as...

    I've always needed a larger size than people would expect to look at me because I have a pretty broad pelvis. When I was skinny fat before I started lifting I was 170lb at 6'1" and wore a 36" waist....

    The link I provided gives an alternative formula that gets rid of the height problem with BMI, but the same problem for people with lots of muscle exists. Not sure what the work-around for that would...

    The BMI equation is actually needlessly simple. A simple height:weight ratio doesn't work at all for reasons addressed by other posters. BMI works reasonably well for people of average height and...

    I think I'm going to do a mini cut instead of starting my lean bulk at the start of February as planned. I ended up cut on 17 December with a weekly average weight of 74.6kg (164.5lb). Since then...

    My waist measures just over 31 inches, but 32 inch pants fit me pretty cosy - I've got proportionately large hips so I've always needed bigger sizes.

    Thanks mate, yeah, it's hard for me to fit in more than an hour, especially before work. What I'll sometimes do is split the workout in two ans do the last 2-3 exercises in the evening. For anyone...
