    Be careful with adding intervals back in. Intervals are taxing in a similar way to weightlifting, so replacing one day of lifting with a hard interval day won't help recovery in any way, and takes...

    My Take On HCT-12

    Recently I've been playing around with some variables of training, using a similar outline of HCT-12 and Myo-reps and the combination I'm using now is working wonders. I figured I'd post it here for...

    Getting leaner and stronger are also somewhat opposing goals. If you really want to do the 4 day program, you'll need to eat more to have better recovery. If you want to keep doing what you currently...

    I agree. I think you would end up being able to use more weight if you switched Triceps to Lower day as well because they would be more fresh and recovered. Similar to how it is with Biceps in the...

    Switching Body Parts

    I was thinking today that it would make much more sense to switch the Triceps exercise for the Calf exercise. The current way really slams your triceps on upper day, while spreading Biceps between...

    I agree with DR and OR. The ONLY thing I focus on is calories and protein. Carbs and fat just fill the rest of the calories. The only exception is ensuring you get a minimum of essential fat (fish...

    Ryan,

    Great article. How exactly would you recommend going into a gaining phase out of a cut? I assume you just continue to slowly bring up calories and lifting frequency until you get to the...

    What's your rationale for placing cheat meals or refeeds on days off? If you're gonna eat more calories then doing so on lifting days will at least keep better partitioning while allowing you to eat...

    If that is truly what is meant by the article, then it needs to be said better. I think almost anyone who reads it will read "cardio makes you fat" and that just isn't true or fair.
