    I heard that 25 year olds can be healthy year round at 8-11% bf depending on genetics, some 8, some 11. But more is needed as you get older. I don't know why competitions encourage lower values....

    True, though his specialty is strength, not body building, 1RM, not 20RM. I never heard of strength specialists doing lots of volume, but not that I'd know.

    I bet your brother eats less than you think. He probably plays video games 14 hours per day and then pigs out when the game is over, still barely hitting maintainence calories. I know someone like...

    For me it was injuries that sent me home for a month or more. I'd come back, see fast strength increases for a month, get back to where I was or a bit further, then another injury or re-injury sends...

    The Access Denied error is deleting my posts, so I'll be fast.

    None of the studies posted looked at clusters that each went to near failure. All were what I call lazy rests.

    Where I see possible time savings is that how many reps you can do in the next set is not linear with rest time.

    Also, they did RPE 10 for every set. I bet that made the extra rest count more.

    Also, 2 people dropped out of the 23 person study, and the remainder had 86% attendance for the 8 weeks.

    I'd have to looks at a 1 rep calculator to compare C and D. Those are the weights I...
