    Something people probably don't take into account is stride length. I used to be one of two PE teachers at a school. I'm 6'1" with proportionately long legs, the other teacher was a 5'4" ish woman...

    Interesting to read about how bodyweight affects strength. I've bulked up from 165lb to 180lb this year and seen small improvements to my lifts, except bodyweight pull ups, where my max has dropped...

    Cheers - it was your suggestion that lead to me looking into it. I think it will be fun doing the big lifts with higher frequency and I agree that the squat work looks by far the hardest.

    My favourite method of progression!

    Yes, that's progression and yes, you can grow muscle doing this, provided the volume and proximity to failure is appropriate for you. Volume load (sets x reps x...

    Sooo, I got bored and went back and converted all of my lifts in this thread from kg to lb - seeing as everyone else is posting in pounds. Took a couple of hours - I wouldn't usually have time for...

    Trying to calculate your TDEE probably isn't worthwhile - if you plug your numbers into a TDEE calculator it will probably spit out a number over 3000 calories, which you know doesn't work for you....

    2500 was just a suggested starting point - if you've tracked meticulously and not lost weight on that calorie amount, then start lower, using movement in your scale weight to adjust as necessary. I'm...

    That's good to hear and shows you have the discipline to stick to an exercise routine. You're probably much fitter and stronger and healthier than you look, in that case.

    It also shows even more...

    It seems to me that OP is approaching this with an 'all or nothing' mentality , which is rarely a good thing. The question you need to ask yourself is: how has that mentality/approach worked for you...

    I've always done push ups strict - touching my chest to the ground and locking out every rep. I also do them later in workouts with some fatigue. The most I've done in a workout is about 26 at around...

    Some strange options here:


    1. Height

    Are you over 185cm (6ft 1inch)?
    Or are you under 167cm (5ft 5inches)?

    184cm, so... none of the above!

    Cool - if fat loss is a major goal, then something with slower progression like All Pros is probably a good idea. Otherwise you could do Fierce 5 Novice, but when you stall, switch to intermediate...

    Cheers for the reply - I had wondered the same thing. I've always locked out because it feels fine to do so, but might experiment with stopping a bit short of lockout.

    Do you have a barbell? If so, I recommend All Pros which tou can find in the stickies. If not, check out Fierce 5 Novice Dumbbell routine.
