  1. hiit 3-4 days a week - does this look rational? Is 15mins enough?

    LHT made me eat like a monster, gained me bodyfat (as well as some muscle and strength) and gave me insomnia. I tried various modifications (more carbs, different time of day etc) but nothing really...

    I feel your pain - I have the reverse problem in that LHT gives me insomnia (and made me add bodyfat, tho also muscle), I tried adding carbs, and working out earlier in the day but nothing helped....

    reading this has given me plenty of food for thought, and a chance to reflect on my goals.

    Ghashul - I mulled 3x5, and dropped squats down to 3x5 last week (while leaving everything else at 5x5) - the result: eating like a beast I could sleep, but away for the weekend bbq'ing with friends...

  8. lower volume (2x5) for strength gains (because 5x5 makes me eat too much!)

    Hi,

    I've had good results (gaining mass and strength) from stronglifts 5x5 (modified since I bought Starting Strength - I've added chins and am practicing power cleans) but now my squat is up to...
