Training to failure isn't bad per se, it's just that a lot of people can't handle doing it frequently. Going to failure on one or a few exercises every few weeks probably won't kill your workouts, so if it's something you enjoy, go for it. One key thing I don't think we discussed yet is diet. If all...

So my main concern is that the CNS will get tired and therefore will prevent you from lifting heavy weights. This will in turn, keep you from getting size. As you said, the size you gain is completely a result of how much you can lift. If you are putting less tension on the muscle, then you get les...

So assuming you do not do every lower body movement there is, your body can not possibly be stimulated as though it is doing all possible movements. In other words the effect on the muscles from backs quats, deadlifts, front squats, lunges, single leg squats, split squats on and on is different. Th...

One problem Nunya is that the body adapts to stress, this is how it has managed to be so successful. This said, the body will learn how to not breakdown when you always do the same routine in order to be more efficient. When this happens growth will generally slow. Growth does slow because of adapt...

I've never heard of it nor have I experienced it. If some additional water retention can cause acne then it's possible. Beyond that I don't see any way for creatine to cause acne.

Well, I would, and do, eat something, light, say in the neighborhood of 200 kcal, fairly low on the GI (yes, most nutritionists are heading towards an II, or insulin index vice the GI, it's more of a glycemic load of the entire meal rather than judging by individual components), and keep it somewha...

Re: Whey concentrate vs. isolate

There was a question a while ago on the old board about whey concentrates vs whey isolate. I got to it too late i guess.Besides the speed of absorbtion, there are other differences between the two, making concentrates the better and healthier choice. The concentrates have more lactoferrin(anabolic ...

Protein powder is nt a magic bullet, it just helps you get your requirements met if you are deficient (which by the way, most Americans are NOT). Tim Evidence for which can be seen at the local mall's food court. I'd offer one modification to this, and that is on off days get whole food. Protein sh...

Back when Creatine came out, I remeber there was only like 1-2 companies that had it. When I did a search for it today, I saw so many companies that it blew me away! Which is the best bang for my buck to try it out and see whether it helps me or not? I'd prefer something that comes pre-mixed so I c...

I honestly don't remember, it's been so long since I've done it. Shouldn't be too hard to find on various forums though, it's a very popular stack.

Depends on your diet and training. Creatine supplies extra anaerobic fuel for your muscles, helps the cells retain water and helps activate satelite cells which could lead to more protein synthesis over time. However, none of these things will put you at or beyond your genetic limits or even close t...

I agree with CDB. Good stuff. One thing to add, I still think 3 sets not to failure would be fine. The point of the studies is you will make similar gains in the long run by simply not training to failure on the sets you are currently doing. Yup. Minus CNS failure, volume is basically whatever you ...

Go with a full body routine or split. Having an imbalance in your training is more likely to cause problems than solve them. There are really no exercises you should avoiding on the condition that they are performed correctly. Swimming is a tough sport, anaerobic and aerobic demands on the body and ...

3 being a hypothetical number. I was just wondering if you have to do more sets. I would think you would, but I think you are saying you don't. If 3 sets to failure does the trick, not going to failure you might need 5 or 6. Who knows though, it must be different for everyone. I just know I can do ...
