    Your deficits and surplusses sound good.

    As for 1% per week, that is for people who are not already rather lean, and also assumes you are getting good sleep. 0.5% per week is for lean folks.

    I've not used online dating in almost 10 years. It bothers me how there are so many political planks you have to match with people on or they throw a fit. Dating is an interrogation instead of fun.

    What matters is how many sets you do per muscle group per week, and how close to failure on each set. 10 sets of bench press per week is good if you stop a rep or 2 before failure.

    Agreed about asking lots of questions. You will want to know a lot about your family history later.

    I can only say I had a tendon sheath bulge up. The doc said it would likely go away on its own. It did in a month or so.

    I also read that with tendonitis, there are micro tears that must reconnect...

    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...

    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...

    No longer doing torso/ limbs?

    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...
