    Is there any issue if I run the 4 day upper/lower routine 4 days in a row? This is pretty much what my schedule looks like:

    Mon-Rest

    Yeah, I'm around 17% right now, so I am thinking I need to drop a good 10 lb or so before I consider bulking again.

    Do you have any other hobbies currently, out of curiosity? I guess the issue for me is when I did BJJ, it was a badass hobby that kept me busy and gave me something to talk about, but my only real...
  • Should I get back into BJJ after a long layoff?

    So I earned my blue belt around a year ago and stopped training a few months after that. I have a lot of respect for my previous instructor, but I disagreed with the way that classes were setup, was...

    Hmm that's an interesting idea. But you don't think there's any issue with me sticking with an intermediate routine?

    I just thought of something...do you think part of the issue could be that when I did the resets after failing a lift two sessions in a row, I was often dropping the weight by only 10%, not 15%?

    So right now I am cutting and am eating at a deficit of 500 calories a day, but my lifts are still hovering around where they were when I was bulking for 5-6+ months. I feel like I keep getting stuck...
  • Fierce 5-Should I go with novice or intermediate?

    So I've been using the Fierce 5 intermediate 4 day upper/lower routine for some time after using my own splits and intermediate PPL routines loosely for years. After doing a lot of thinking, I came...

    I'm wondering if part of it is my body type. I'm tall and have long legs, which apparently the high-bar squat is better for, but I never felt comfortable using the high-bar squat, believe it or not....
  • Are there any downsides to not doing the back squat and just doing the front squat?

    I was having back pain off and on for months last year and it took me a while to narrow down what might have been causing it. The pain always seemed to be triggered by leg day and I eliminated...

    This makes sense, but I would hate to dip below 180-185 lb...I feel like a beanpole when I get skinnier than that and that’s a lot of time walking around with lower confidence

    So how long would you suggest cutting? A couple months? If I go beyond a couple of months with eating at a deficit, my concern is that will negate any muscle I’ve gained in the last few years.
