    I just think about daily totals, and divide whatever i'm having per meal by how many total meals there are in the day. Right now i'm having two a day, so my total's around 180 for protein so I go for...

    If you have some type of crossbar setup available(rack/barbell, squat stands/bar, chairs/bar) you can set the bar so that you're sitting on the ground, and do seated pullups. It's a variation that...

    Personally if I don't reach failure, then the set's not done. Counting reps was always too distracting, and I never felt like I got anywhere with it. I like to keep volume less but go all out each...

    A whole program just for abs seems wildly inefficient. I'd much rather spend my time hitting the whole body and throwing something in for abs as part of it.

    I think one of the biggest mistakes with calf training, is that it's left purely to isolation movements. Isolations are great but they shouldn't be the main tool, so I like to combine a compound with...

    What are you actually trying to replace the caffeine with, would be my first question. Like what are you trying to get out of the food consumed? No caffeine? Alternative form of it?
  • As good as squats are of an exercise, I wouldn't...

    As good as squats are of an exercise, I wouldn't say they're what i'd go to as my calf movement. My main issue in that sense is that if you point toes in to hit the outside calf, you won't get much...
  • Is there a such thing as underhand deadlifts?

    Title says it all. Wondering if these are a thing at all, and if there would be any benefits to using a supinated grip in a deadlift. Using low weight to be on safe side and not chance a tear, could...

    I like to do em on the floor, my shoulders really thank me for it cause it removes possibility of overextending under load. I can use as much weight as I can lift without worry of joint pain, it's...

    I'd say it does matter, in the sense that certain exercises are more efficient for training the muscle than others, for one reason or another. One reason would be to think whether or not a given...

    If you ain't born with it, you can still build it. Genetics are just the starting point.
  • If you're not sore from what you're doing, your...

    If you're not sore from what you're doing, your body has adapted to it. There's exceptions, but most of the time that tends to be the case.

    No way in hades i'd ever grip nipple width unless using a bar with a camber, like a ez-curl or a swiss. The inevitable wrist pain just isn't worth any additional tricep activation i'd get from it....

    If everything was being done right, consistently, without too much time off - i'd say a few decades(at least) before reaching that close to a person's full potential. And it's good that it would take...

    Just my opinion, but generally with pulling exercises, wide grips are gonna involve a bit more lats and narrow tends to involve more of the biceps. It's said that thicker shaft bars such as axles or...
