    Deweighting

    Is it a good Idea to deweight between reps of deadlifts, powercleans and hack squats? Im starting WBB routine.

    And would you guys recommend the wannabebig routine, baby got back, or starting strength for the goal of hypertrophy?

    Fully deweight after each rep.

    You need to eat. That, in conjunction with any of those routines, will induce hypertrophy.

    When you guys say eat to gain weight, do you mean to gain fat? Because if I were to start eating 4k or 5k calories a day, i think I would just throw on 5 lbs of fat a week, no matter how much I lifted. Not to mention double my $60 a week i spend on food.

    You will gain some fat while you gain weight, but if you do it right the amount of fat you gain can be kept to a minimum.

    Track your calories at www.fitday.com. Monitor your weight and adjust your calories based on weight gain. If you are gaining weight to quickly/feel like you are gaining too much fat, dial back the calories a bit. If you are not gaining weight or not gaining weight fast enough, increase your calories. Just keep in mind, faster weight gain is usually accompanied by more fat gain.

    By the way, by deweighting i mean resting the bar back on the ground between each rep, and then lifting it off again.

    Cardio is good for your heart. Just remember, any calories you burn while doing cardio will have to be made up for if you want to gain weight.

    Fasted AM or post-workout, low to medium intensity seem to be pretty tried and true options.
    Don't asker for a light load, but a strong back.

    Fasted cardio is ideal for fat loss.. just so long as it isn't high intensity. 45-60mins SSC with some caffine about 1/2 hour before the cardio will really ramp up catecholomines and free up fatty acids to be used by the muscle for energy..
