    It depends what you mean by "significant results". If you start out as a skinny-fat 150lbs, you shouldn't expect to be lean over 200lbs in 1-2 years.

    Not necessarily. It depends on the person. Front squats force you to stay more upright, and move more at the knees, but also require you to use less weight. Its the same decision you'd have to...

    I think we ACTUALLY agree on something. I dont think recomping exclusively would be a good idea either. More likely, I think periods in between "bulks" and "cuts" should be spend with the goal of...

    Ok I get that. So what time frame do you think this has to happen to be considered "recomping".

    Is it by the day, week, month, year, etc.?

    If someone starts the week off with 180lbs of lean...

    The thing most people ignore, is there is a big difference between guys at 3-6% BF and guys at around 10-15% BF.
