Routine Design for Dummies 1.0 eknight 173 1 monthframe (61): @acoble02 it’s actually opposite, lower volume for intermediate, since more experienced you are, workouts becoming more intense, you can’t keep same volume with increased intensity after some time, so higher experience = higher intensity and volume unfortunately has to go down a bit

40Mastebolin 100mg/ml-Drostanolone Propionat SandyJams 2 19 daysBenBuyld12 (1): Hi Sandy ! It’s not a problem at all. I know the side effects quiet good. But I need to say that the drug https://pumpitfast.com/mastebolin-amps-by-alpha-pharmais effective and you can have these effects only if you won’t control the normal dosage. Due to the low anabolic index, Mastebolin is very effective as a fat-burning drug, but at the same time it often causes androgenic reactions. The main side effects of Mastebolin are:...
Simple advise for a beginner? unfitweakfat 8 19 dayseknight (57382): No problem. We all start somewhere. I was legit 93 pounds the first time I walked into a gym to work out. -3X
Build "decent" quads with limited exercises? forgottenpass 12 20 dayseknight (57382): None of those are exercises I’d advise- especially not Russian twists. You’re putting your spine in flexion and rotation- the exact position you’re never supposed to lift an object from. Very unsafe. I would advise anti-flexion and anti-rotation movements for strong lumbopelvic musculature. Things like planks, side planks, anti-rotation band movements, and Pallof presses. -3X

Should I begin with a Bulk or a Cut? randallkevin 7 23 daysrandallkevin (10): You've caught me there. I do want to get bigger then. And then cut down my body fat. I get it now. If I don't BULK ... and grow my muscles, than there won't be anything there to look more toned. The CUT then cuts the additional fat gained during the bulk. Thank you for helping me understand the purpose of a bulk better.
Blue Star Blade jayjay770 2 23 daysAoverto7 (310): No, and I honestly wouldn't. Not sure in the validity of the statements on the website but anything that says it would increase norepinephrine levels would worry me about creating a hormonal imbalance and messing with my endocrine system. Also, I would worry about it affecting my blood pressure and overall heart health. I'll tell you what works better is a caloric deficit. This will for sure burn fat. The thing is that it takes time,...
New here, is this meal plan ok for losing bf TedBundo 8 24 dayseknight (57382): But why would one want to keep it down? For healthy, active people, it’s been demonstrated numerous times that not only can you lose weight, fat, and improve markers of inflammation eating completely processed “unclean” foods, but also that diets that are too restrictive or are exclusionary are often too difficult to maintain and people end up binging and overeating to regain weight back. “Clean eating,” is a myth. -3X

Noise: Home Gym DL w/ Rubber Bumper plates mikew 2 1 monthwannabemuscular (32811): Looks good @mikew. You seemed to put it down hard and it wasn't too loud at all. Is that just carpet on concrete? I know you plan to build a platform, but will you leave the carpet over the rest of the area? My basement gym room is very tight carpet on concrete and I like it.
Tell me what you think acoble02 5 1 monthframe (61): If you prefer to work out with weights twice per week then it's definetely better to go with full body and to choose strenght routine from faq in stickies. If more, then routine you posted is also fine as well as pull push legs, if you do upper/lower/upper, better not to go all into horizontal pulling, but maybe first upper day - vertical pulling 2 movements, second upper day - 2 horizontal if you want, or mix them like 1 horizontal and 1...
Who's stronger, me or my little brother? throwawayaccount 24 1 monthwannabemuscular (32811): @throwawayaccount It's been recommended you read the FAQ like 5 or 6 times already. Please do. You need a plan to set out on this journey. You can just walk into the gym with the intent of getting used to the equipment first. Understand the basic concepts of Push/Pull and Upper/Lower before you do anything. You'd probably do well with a basic Upper/Lower split. Here, I'll make it easy for you.

6 years of lifting and not much to show LBC47 13 1 monthforgottenpass (301): @LBC47 Bro you look solid in your pictures! ...But it may also be that you're just a genetic outlier, in that you just gain strength a lot more relative to your muscle size.

Trap bar Hambo 3 1 monthmikew (11490): @Hambo your question makes no sense. Why not just poke around the web? It appears that the terms are used interchangeably. Here is a video of a Trap Bar *and* a Hex Bar... it's a Hex Trap bar: https://youtu.be/O4TV3H3rX1Q
Should I cut or Lean bulk? Advice/PICS NoviceKev 9 1 monthmikew (11490): @NoviceKev if you calculate your BF% based on the 1RMs you give http://www.strongur.io/body_fat_calculator/) it would suggest a much lower BF than 16% but your pics don't seem to support that so it's hard to give accurate advice. I'm not saying that calculator is 100% accurate - it's only an estimate - and it could be way off in your case. So take it with a grain of salt... My sense is that a program focused on building strength will give you...

Certainly not for a parent, a full-time student, someone with a full-time job, someone with interests other than just working out, etc. @frame And being angry as fuck isn't going to help you "crush these weights" and break through a plateau. Proper programming, form, nutrition, having adequate sleep, etc.,...
