I'm the opposite. If I don't have consistency in my program, I will stop working out completely. I like to know what I'm doing before I even put on my workout clothes. As long as you keep moving the weight slowly, and working back up the reps, I don't see anything wrong with the same routine. I'm no...

Triceps

What's the best exercise for triceps for someone with just a home gym and no machines? I've been doing lying triceps extensions, but I'm not sure if maybe close-grip bench presses or something else would be better to do? I'm looking mainly for size, not really cuts or hitting all the "heads" etc. Ju...

I take a protein shake on days that I lift weights. Should I also take one on days where I only do cardio, or days where I don't do anything at all and relax?

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 ca...

Is there anything I should change on my routine? I like keeping it with basic larger movements, as I'm not aiming to be a bodybuilder. Is adding a few sets of curls on Friday going to hinder rather than help me? I would like to keep it to a limit of 3 exercises a day, Mon-Fri at the most so that I c...

Creatine

If I start taking Creatine, and say a few months down the line I stop taking it, will I lose all of the size, strength, and energy that I had gained while taking it? Basically, is it worth it if you won't be taking it forever?

By hurt I mean muscle loss. Fat loss is my primary goal, but not SO much as to sacrifice muscle. I think the more articles I read, the more I am scared to even exercise as I feel like I am going backwards! Maybe if I bump my cardio to 20-30 mins a day, but keep it lower intensity then? Maybe I shoul...

How much cardio can I do AFTER my workouts 5 days a week before it starts to be a bad thing? Also I was going to try 15 mins of higher intensity cardio vs say 30-40 mins of walking.

The reason I added curls on Friday is because I am not seeing much growth on my biceps. I feel that I might not be working them hard enough so I thought adding a few sets on another day would help out. I think currently biceps are my weakest point, although its usually everyone else's strongest! If ...

My back was fine, it was my hamstrings that were killing me! Should I do the stiff legged deadlifts on thursday after squat then to hit quad/ham or Friday instead of shrugs, since heavy weight held like that should get my traps decently enough? I always did 10,10,10 but someone suggested I do 12,10,...

I do 12,10,8 because I used to do 10,10,10 but I would never be able to hit 10 in the last set. My goak was 30 total reps so my thinking was, I'll do more at the first one when I'm fresh, do 10 on second, and 8 is my goal for the third. 30 total reps and I achieve the goal in each one. Should I just...

All weights are done with 3 sets of 12,10,8 reps. Same weight. 2 mins rest between each set, about 5 mins between each exercise. Monday Barbell ...
