    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...

    Not posting publically likely means payment based site or commision site at best.

    Yes, there are websites that connect students and tutors. Or you can let a gym take a cut and give you clients....

    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 wonder if I need to...

    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...

    I learned of another study where two groups lifted a heavy weight for 18 reps. One group did 3 sets of 6, with 90 second rests between.. The other did failure sets separated by 20 second rests, as...

    I doubt people sleep well in prison. Some might though, the ones who take their cell mates mattress to double up and have their cell mate sleep on the floor. But many can't.

    Starvation victims need time to make their stomachs bigger and need energy to digest food.

    Cookies are a good source of energy. Milk has a lot of volume to it. You do need fluids of course to...

    The arm attachments might not burn more fat, as my legs are already demanding lots of oxygen. I just wonder if I'd have more fun getting my whole body into it. Maybe more physical conditioning this...

    $300+ is definitely out of my price range. I live a few blocks from a gym with bikes, but they don't have arm attachments. I'd also ride more if I had a bike right here.

    I have an inexpensive bike...

    I'm curious about the first story. Did the gym kick the guy out? Did he lose his job? Or did things just settle down after that?

    I need an exercise bike. Which one?

    I want 2 arm levers so I can work my back and chest at the same time.

    It needs a rounded, padded seat. Most the seats are flat on top and 90 degree drop off at the edge, which is not comfortable....
