    Grab bar. Pull.

    I hate it. I didn't give it a fair run though, only tried for a few weeks. It was really really awkward, I seem to recall it was really finicky to set up properly, and legs had to slide on pads while...

    I put off my cut almost a year. Was a month or 2 away from my cut when lockdowns started. I finally got back in the gym in September, spent a few months building back up while maintaining weight and...

    Is low volume the way to go?

    My first cut I was still fairly new to lifting and grinding away lifting to failure in the 5 rep range on a modified PPL style routine. I lost a bit of strength on all...

    I sometimes do barbell hack squat, same idea. Heel elevated, torso upright. Less than 100 lbs burns like hell.

    I estimate 400/hr in the gym, 100 per mile walking, 100 per 300 ft climbing, 200/hour while working on my van build, etc. Add to 1.2x BMR estimate. My last bulk and cut came in almost exactly as...

    If you do 2 sets a year will you gain?
    2 sets a month?
    2 sets a week?

    For a calorie deficit that big, I think cardio will help a lot just to let you eat a more normal amount and make it easier to get enough protein and fat on the deficit. Bike riding burns a lot of...

    I never had trouble doing 5x5 with even the first set feeling pretty hard/not a warmup set.
    Maybe just give it some time to get used to the workload?
    And yes, it takes time to do 5 heavy sets plus...

    Pick something up and curl it. If it's too easy pick something heavier.

    Or, chin ups.
    Or, you can hang on a bar, diagonally with feet elevated and supported out front, and curl your partial...

    I wonder the same thing about belts. I've never tried one and really only interested in maximum lifts without equipment. But I have been using grips on deadlift so I can train them while my finger...
