    The problem is that people who've been fat all their lives are obviously less healthy. I'm not sure how they compare to someone who got fat from bulking - they probably have worse blood markers than...

    There are problems trying to quantify volume as reps x sets - because this ignores the exertion component.

    In my view, the fundamental variables of resistance training are:
    1. weight - what...

    Please read the under 18s sticky thread before posting in "fat loss" again. Thanks.

    You can probably remain more stable doing 1 at a time. Having said that, I would not bother with front raises if you do a lot of benching and overhead pressing - anterior delt is already heavily...

    If your goal is hypertrophy, there is no evidence that formal periodization will improve your results.

    You could just as well take every set to RPE 9 (however many reps that is) and increase the...

    In a way, it's nice to keep things simple.

    No need to worry about things like splits, complex periodization (for hypertrophy that is), timing of carbs, meal timing relative to workouts etc.

    I don't think those are reasons to prefer higher reps either - but if you want to try All Pros Simple Beginners Routine, it would suit you I think.

    Fat loss is caused by a net calorie deficit. So look at calories firstly - not macros.

    Apart from making sure you get sufficient proteins and dietary fats, there is no reason to get too particular...

    +1 for eat more

    Do that and the answer to your OP is yes.

    Crossfit is more well known for injury risk than anything else. I realise the classes vary a lot... If your main interest is health, that can be achieved by adding certain preventative maintenance...

    Not trying to be mean but that sounds like typical behaviour for a 140lber - you need to break eggs to make an omelette OP. Allow some controlled amount of fat gain.

    You won't get that certainty by paying some random off the internet. A lot of the custom programs I've seen are far worse than the 'cookie cutter' routines we have in the sticky threads.

    If you don't bend your knees, you are probably allowing the bar to drift away from your legs - which puts shear forces on your spine - bad idea.

    Some knee bend is inevitable as it gets heavier....

    There is merit in incrementally increasing your workload until you can no longer sustain it. Then deload and reset to a lower workload level.

    BF% is probably optimistically low - unless you are tall or have been training for quite some time.

    Post a pic for a proper answer, never trust BF% from BIA

    Maybe you don't need to do as much walking/running. What is your goal for doing the training? It could be that resistance training will have more influence on this goal than walking/running does

    Every newbie tries to dodge training legs with weights because it's hard

    Every lifter who gets worthwhile results trains legs with weights
