  • Metabolisms don't break or become damaged just...

    Metabolisms don't break or become damaged just from routine fat loss, that's not a real thing, and certainly not after only losing 15 pounds in 2 1/2 months.

    A 1 week stall is not a plateau, but...

    You need to understand the context of the original question. OP is 220 pounds and *thinks* he's 18% bodyfat. There's no way to accurately assess that someone is a true 18%. Maybe he is 18%, maybe...

    Because its not straight a straight up simple math equation, that's just not the reality of things. LBM loss (including lots of water) factored in as well makes for a more realistic situation. I...

    I actually have a hard time actually feeling my pecs on a bench press, even though I do get a pump from it so I know they're engaged. I actually get a much better feel for pec engagement doing a...

    Burning muscle is a much harder task for the body than using its fat stores, if you aren't in a caloric deficit then neither one would occur and that's why you're not losing weight.

    If the amount of fat you're carrying bothers you then do a cut, if not then carry on.

    I question the need for you to be in a deficit, but its hard to say for certain just by looking at numbers and not a photo.

    Body recomposition is a real thing, but it is a long and slow process...

    Abs are like any other muscle, they have to be developed first and once they're sufficiently developed then transitioning to a fat loss phase will allow them to show definition. The issue is that we...

    Remember you may not always be able to add 5 pounds every week, in those cases when things start getting difficult you just try to add another rep to your set rather than increase the weight. Did...

    Exactly this OP.

    I have a watch that tracks calories too, but I completely disregard it. Mine is in no way accurate, based on the data that I have from tracking calories and watching my weight...

    BMR and RMR are really both irrelevant numbers when it comes to the weight loss equation. BMR by definition is the amount of calories you burn in a completely fasted and no-movement state. ...

    Ok, I misread your comment then.

    Also, if you were working out with a single pair of dumbbells then that likely held you back during that time and impeded your progress. Having a full set of...

    What I see here is a lot of what I would refer to as "junk volume", or wasted volume, which is any extra training done for a muscle group that has already been worked sufficiently to maximize muscle...

    Some of OP's quotes from other threads. Wants to look like an IFBB pro, but obviously his training and nutrition suck. Continues to troll with his "woe is me" attitude.

    Training with high reps doesn't mean you're "training for hypertrophy/aesthetics". For the life of me I can't figure out why people still think that only high reps = hypertrophy. Hypertrophy is...
