    I think Fierce 5 Novice is probably the best out of the ones in the sticky threads, though it's the only one I've done so I'm probably biased. I'd you follow Fierce 5 while gaining 2lb a month you...

    That's an impressive BMI and waist measurement - I would need to gain a lot of muscle and lose a little fat to get close to that. Is your listed age of 74 correct, if so that is even more...

    The day after six sets of skullcrushers my right tricep is nice and sore and my (much smaller) left tricep feels like it has done nothing. Definitely time to change this exercise up so I can start...

    Yes, but I did an extra set, so it was an added three reps across the first five sets. Still, pretty happy with today's performance and tying my rep PR was nice, especially as I don't think I'm at...

    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.
