Here is the thing you have to remember about legs. A -TON- of your bodies muscle mass is in your legs. Why does this matter to you? The more muscle mass your body carries, the more calories your body takes to maintain current weight, and if you want to get a shredded look "sorry, I didn't see what y...

caffeine is an awesome metabolic boost, and really cheap. Usually can stack it with sesamin/fishoil for a solid stack. Stay away from the stuff with ridiculous named products in all caps, or miracle fat burner 4000% crap. bulknutrition.com "sorry, not trying to plug their site, just give somewhere t...

12 sounds kind of high. If I can do 12 at a lower weight, I can do 6-8 at a little bit heavier weight for a more intense session, though thats just me.

I usually know when I'm doing my all out, because I cramp up in my upper abs. And my legs hurt right now. Straight soreness up and down my quads, and walking sucks right now, and this is after two days. I think tomorrows HIIT will be on the bike, for sure.

My diet is sound. High protein small meals with protein shakes in between. No more than 30g per serving. I'm just making sure my cardio isn't killing my lift work.

Well, the thing is, I've read that theres a fat burning heart rate target. I usually run personally, like 2-4 miles depending on how my body feels on that day. I know that there is a tendency I see personally of most lifters using the bikes, but I like the appeal of 9.5 mins per 100 cals burned.

What kind of cardio?

Sorry, I missed it there, I squat on same day as deadlifting. And I can't give you an exact wrist measurement, just that my middle finger and thumb do not touch when I wrap my hand around it. Waist right now sits between a 36 and 34. I gain muscle way faster than I usually would like. I actually hav...
