    Long ago, when I first learned about lifting, I must have heard “3 minute rests” between sets and I ran with it. So, imagine Deadlift, OHP, pullup, 2 supplementals and a core, with 5 progressive...

    Right on.

    Ya know, three times now I've been told that 2 hours is too long for a lifting session, and once I've been told that if you're gonna lift heavy, then you need a [a solid 3 minutes of]...

    For 5 months I was gaining 0.5lb/week, of muscle (a bit more in total mass), consistently, and then I got mentally and somewhat physically fatigued (when attempting to move from 3/week to 4/week) and...
  • Glute Activation Journey...for funsies

    I just had my first workout ever in which I was able to split squat 2x50 dumbbells, all the while my knee tracking perfectly, and not wavering. For me, this was huge.

    For me, the BIA scale is convenient, and so I track from it. It's a tool and has its value and limitations. It is most useful when you consider the data be relatively accurate over a long term, and...

    I think that you and Tally are both saying the same thing--stick with a program. Alright, I'm convinced.

    Thanks for the direction.



    Lord knows that my wife would agree with you. I'm doing 3 minutes rest between all working sets, and absolutely no screwing around. I'm so focused that I can't even...

    I've been using Strongur [sic] for 6 years, and it's been great for me. It's the only fitness app I've paid for. It used to be called Multi-year because it really is designed for long term tracking,...
