Routine Design for Dummies 1.0 eknight 173 5 daysframe (55): @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

Tell me what you think acoble02 5 14 hoursframe (55): 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 16 hourswannabemuscular (32736): @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.

Squats advice jostrosky 11 2 daysjostrosky (244): @Yeags yeah I was just doing 225 and figured I would do some set of 5 to see form. I agree they are not the best.

Even picking out the right collars is challenging because there is a maze of choices ranging from $10 to $50 to much higher for calibrated/competition collars.

Trap bar Hambo 3 12 daysmikew (11415): @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 12 daysmikew (11415): @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...
breaking plateau Hambo 15 12 daysJsn3004 (2959): And even if he was correct and long-term abstinence didn't result in lower T, sleeping up to 10 hours a day isn't sustainable. 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.,...

Should I hire a nutrition/lifting coach? forgottenpass 20 18 daysmikew (11415): @forgottenpass you have a distinct goal: But do you have a deadline? If you are working toward something specific - like a competition, vacation, wedding, etc. - that will sharpen your focus. Another "trick" is to pick a specific weight loss goal. Let's say 180 lbs. (Assume you can lose 1 lb. per week.) Then pick sub-goals: cut to 192, cut to 184, cut to 176, etc. You can make a complete transformation in 3-4 months. But it's...

BulkSupplements wannabemuscular 2 18 daysmikew (11415): Yes - I've been pleased with Bulk Supplements over the years. I buy their creatine - comes in a large bag that will last for a year or more. I am trying to get a better deal for the users here - maybe 20% off first order and 10% off after that.
Fat Loss Help Needed! kbahramicc 4 18 daysKyleMurphree (1): Everyone has their own goals for their health and wellness. If you're looking to reduce body fat, you will most likely have to find a way to take in fewer calories. Omega 3 fatty acids found in wild salmon, walnuts, chia and hemp seeds increase lipolysis. So you lose fat instead of storing it. You can also take exercises from élastique fitness for burning body fats.

Rogue Bumper Plates - Cost Analysis mikew 6 19 daysmikew (11415): @wannabemuscular I much prefer metal/steel plates... the look, the feel, the even the sound. You're right that a good set will last forever. I would definitely choose metal/steel over bumper if I could. But in this case, I'm compelled to go with rubber/bumper plates to limit/reduce noise. I watched a ton of YouTube videos last night and the loud metal clang was too much versus a duller thud. The metal/steel plates are less expensive but would...
Your thoughts on this... Hope you get motiva bartech 5 20 daysbartech (1): Hi NaturalBrawn its called Calisthenics = Beautiful Strength in Greek. It involves your body weight and your body weight only usually it's performed in the gym and parks however to try the more extreme moves I go gymnastics just to keep it safe. It's nothing new search for Calisthenics on Youtube and you will see how big the community is.

Advice on a strength routine... Jreay4 10 1 monthhaole (2073): @Jreay4 If you play for your country's soccer team you should talk to the training coach. I think you're bullshitting us about that unless you play for a low level team for a low level country. If you are for real I would recommend telling us your goals first and where you are in your season or off season. Training properly for specific sports like soccer should always take into consideration the individual's goals and timing as it relates...
