    so, do you subscribe to both very small surpluses to "bulk" and very small deficits to "cut"?

    There is a lot of conflicting information out there regarding "recomping", losing fat and gaining muscle at the same time. What I believe from reading much about the topic, and my own experience, is...

    1. The shape of your bicep is unpredictable. My first surgery 6 years ago (right shoulder/arm) my peak never came back. My last surgery one year ago (left shoulder/arm), my peak came back as good, if...

    all great perspectives, thanks. What I settled on for now is one week (actually twice through my push/legs/pull/off routine) using my regular weights, BUT, half the amount of sets and no going to...

    I agree. Yes, still in a deficit, but I would only deload for 4 or 8 days (which is once or twice through my push/legs/pull split). But you do make a good point... if in a deficit, and a deload is...
  • Deloading.... Intensity vs volume? Your thoughts?

    until today I have never truly deloaded. The closest I came was taking a few days off from time to time when my shoulder hurts. My normal routine is Push/Legs/Pull/Off Repeat. I woke up today and...

    Excellent article! Thanks!

    Two items I found very interesting:
    "4. Periodization and periodization style don’t seem to affect hypertrophy, at least in the literature we currently have. This is...

    Can you further explain that? I know for me, even at 56, I train hard every workout (unless that's not what you mean). Thanks!

    That's how I feel, but I'm wondering if I'm leaving gains on the floor. FYI - I do a "push / off / pull / legs / off" routine over 5 days, then repeat (day of the week doesn't matter)
  • Periodization: Necessary? Optimal? or just individual preference?

    Hello all - what are your thoughts on periodization? Periodization defined here is planned periods (mesocycles) to vary variables; for example 3 weeks low volume, 3 weeks medium volume, 3 weeks...

    This brings up a great point which I find is strongly debated (periodization). I will start another thread to get some dedicated discussion.

    If you're concerned about rupturing a blood vessel or anything requiring a doctor's attention, please see a doc.
    Thats said, I had the same issue many years ago and a chiropractor suggested I put a...

    It really depends how physical you are when you teach. If you just get bicep tenodesis and not a full rotator cuff repair, I would assume you could be back teaching in four to six weeks, again that’s...

    I don't know which procedure I had but I can tell you this. My right shoulder had extensive rotator cuff surgery 6 years ago which included bicep tenodesis. That bicep tendon had minimal healthy...

    That's a very interesting idea. I usually do 3-4 sets of flat bench, 3-4 sets of incline bench, then 3 sets of a fly movement (pec deck or cables). I can superset the fly movement with a rear delt...

    Interesting! Keep us posted on the progress. Why are you calling yourself a newbie after two plus years of training?

    Absolutely experienced that. Remember they did a whole lot of cutting and drilling, so you have a massive amount of inflammation in there, and that area will be EXTREMELY tight. A big part of your PT...
