So this site is basically out of date. LOL, OK then... Actually, I went back and was able to find at least some places where they say that intermediate or advanced lifters may need to work out more frequently / more sets, so its not as bad as you and I said. I guess I'm at least partially trying to...

Well, let's remember that there is both muscle size, and muscle strength. So size isn't the only variable, unless you're talking about what's discernable in a picture. But yeah, it is possible to isolate the long or short head, vary the width of your grip on a barbell and you'll see a difference (o...

Well Rounded Bicep Development

In the 'Preacher Curls' thread we are discussing 'Well Rounded Bicep Development ' What I am about to discuss applies to any muscle, but let's stick to the biceps as one example. I am trying to understand what 'well rounded bicep development' means. In my worldview there is a muscle, and if you appl...

How I do my HIIT: I use a constant 2:1 rest to work ratio. Usually rest for 2 minutes, work for 1 minute. I believe this is better for fat loss, but hey, I may be wrong. I constantly rotate to machines/exercises between: treadmil, rowing machine, eliptical, stair master, jumping rope, riding a real ...

1) I gained 20lbs and I barely notice the difference. Other people do though. You will be the last person to see the difference. Ihave read that as a rule of thumb there needs to be at least a 10lbs change in body composition before it is noticable. 2) If you want to build mass you will need to eat ...

I am Guest. Another point that northernbelle touched on briefly is that one has to be careful wil HITT for orthopedic reasons. I agree that - generally speaking - aerobic training isn't an either/or proposition. I disagree with northernbelle on the following points: 1) "Both types of cardio exercise...

1. It is entirely possible that you are not really 10% body fat. Depending on how I measure mine I can be anywhere from 13% to 19%. Revisit your measuring methods. Try a cutting cycle and see what happens to your muscle definition. 2. No specific exercise will do anything for muscle definition. This...

You do not need to run the distance to keep your endurance up. High intensity work will improve endurance better than low intensity work.

George, I wouln't worry about that at all. In MMA, it wasn't uncommon for guys i trained with and myself, the odd occasion, to drop as much as 20 pounds in 24-36 hours for weigh-in. That was all water, of course. What you describe is nothing to be concerned about. Also - try weighing yourself each ...

well.. I think it's too soon to be muscle loss. It IS a drastic calorie cut, so it's not surprising to me that the scale is moving. And I'll bet if you give it a few weeks, you'll see that bodyfat percentage change too. But you could also see some muscle loss. have you quit lifting too? I mean...ar...
