    Interesting how people on opposite sides claim the other side is hateful. I wonder how many are genuinely stating their beliefs.

    I have seem some hateful guys mixed in with the red pill posts....

    I've not used online dating in almost 10 years. It bothers me how there are so many political planks you have to match with people on or they throw a fit. Dating is an interrogation instead of fun.

    What matters is how many sets you do per muscle group per week, and how close to failure on each set. 10 sets of bench press per week is good if you stop a rep or 2 before failure.

    Agreed about asking lots of questions. You will want to know a lot about your family history later.

    I can only say I had a tendon sheath bulge up. The doc said it would likely go away on its own. It did in a month or so.

    I also read that with tendonitis, there are micro tears that must reconnect...

    I agree that to get better, you have to lift close to failure.

    How close to failure, and how many sets, depends how close you are to your genetic limit. Also depends how fast you want to get...

    Agreed. And many trainers either don't understand this or do it deliberately to make their client quit after they already paid for a non refundable package. Even my physical therapist is starting to...

    You can do the same resistance and same reps every time, and as long as it is more than before you started, you will get stronger and plateau. Eventually around RPE 5, gains will likely stop...

    Good diet gets you jacked sooner and helps your max potential. But people can still build muscle on a poor diet. It just takes longer. These people have plenty of time. Persistence is easy when they...

    No longer doing torso/ limbs?
    I was stuck deciding between those 3.

    I was doing full body 3x per week, but it was a lot of time for one day. 6x per week upper lower is more manageable.

    I also...

    My opinion is hit each 3x per week, fewer sets of each on a session but hitting all groups in the session, so less soreness. But there are many different preferences here. Some researchers say it...

    I once joked to my trainer that it sure would be funny if someone overhead pressed a heavy barbell for 1 rep max and then triumphantly dropped it behind him like some do with the deadlift.

    Nope. I rep until the concentric takes at least 2 seconds at full effort to cross the predetermined distance. Hopefully that is more reps than last time, but I don't force out an extra rep just to...

    1 rep max max is pretty indisputable. But when I do 20 reps one day and up to 22 a week later, I have to wonder if I really improved or if my speed perhaps changed a bit.

    I have best luck with increasing reps. When I increase the weight, sometimes the reps come down 2 workouts in a row. Going up reps seems more consistent. Or could just be when I change weight, my...
