    I definitely haven't and will certainly be bringing some back into my workouts for sure.

    I do recall the PBF ebook saying you should be able to do 60+ body weight squats. I remember doing 70...

    I don't know... I know these exercises are good for you but personally, when I tried PBF it just wasn't intense enough to get anything major out of it, metabolically or strength-wise. And then there...

    At what weight should one use a belt when dead lifting?
  8. Weight training and nonlinear periodization

    Anyone here using this in your programming? This is when you train across various rep ranges to allow for different kinds of adaption. Say one workout you do sets of five then the next sets of...

    Second the above. I would eat some things you can easily pack in the car afterwards...whey shake, Greek yogurt, fruit, oatmeal (if you're into that), leftover chicken, etc.

    Also at 6' 1" it's telling me 28" thighs are ideal and I don't think that's the case...I'm pretty much there now...

    Best grams protein per calorie foods

    Suppose you are trying to lose weight and thus lower calories but want to keep protein intake reasonably high...what are some good sources of protein? (I'm guessing skinless chicken breast is one of...

    Yes, the idea is that after some warmup sets you start with the heaviest set first (top set) and then decrease bar weight by 10% or so for each subsequent set as you fatigue, and increase the number...
  15. Reverse Pyramid Training ( la Leangains): Anyone here doing it?

    If so, did you have good results with it?

    Thanks Jefferson. Well, I was hoping the predictions of the book were going to come true as far as bodyfat moderating but I didn't really find that to be the case.

    Well I'm done with it.

    Last week I decided to focus more on fat loss and maintaining strength so I'm going to experiment with a Leangains type approach and some Reverse Pyramid Training.

    After doing some reading am going to experiment with some alternate day fasting (sort of Leangains-ish) and see if that helps. I'll eat a surplus on lifting days but then a large deficit on rest...

    @ryan I do have some 1.25 # plates I can use if needed.

    I've tried lifting fasted before and boy that was rough. Even on just an ordinary caloric deficit or very low carbs I often want to go take...

    OK so let me wrap my head around this...it's possible to make strength gains but they will be slower. So instead of seeing progress like you get when you eat a lot (for example, I usually do 3 sets...

    I was thinking of doing something like lifting, but taking two days off for rest (instead of one) between lifting days.

    Obviously if you're in a deficit, you won't continue to increase the weight...
  22. What is a good lifting program for fat loss?

    I've been doing Starting Strength for over 4 months and have gained 20 lbs. I think my body is telling me it's time to switch over to "cutting" rather than "bulking". What is a good program to follow...

    I'm running into this problem myself. I could only do 345x3 today because by the 3rd rep I was pretty much holding the bar with only my fingertips and was close to dropping it. Does chalk make a big...

  25. What's the proper speed for doing a squat?

    I've recently reset my back squat in order to work on some form issues. Recently a trainer at my gym happened to watch me and told me I was going too fast on the upward movement, and this was...
