Stop Overthinking & Learn How To Apply Common Sense To Your Goals
Exercise #1: Use your brain. Don’t be an NPC.
Great post as usual.
Quick question: I'm trying to lean out for a vacation in 3 weeks (already decently lean, just want to get everything to pop for the beach).
I'm using Carbon as usual and have the nutrition and targets down pat. When it comes to training and specifically to get better muscle definition in 3 weeks while in a calorie deficit, would you recommend going lighter on the weights or keep the regular approach of hitting both lower and higher rep ranges for the same exercise?
Liked the article.
Great post, I used to only follow high volume workout plans 6 days a week and then wondered why I was so sore all the time and not making gains. Everybody responds differently. Remember to rest!
Training needs to be optimal but the definition of optimal is ‘whatever works best for you and your situation’. It doesn’t always have to be optimal in the scientific sense.
When I started your ppl last year I had to compare pictures of the gym machines with the exercises. No idea what could be subbed for another.
After two cycles of it, I have a much better feel for what can be subbed out. So when the machine is taken, I have a backup most times.
This post really hit me, and you are right I should be more intuitive with my training. So many guys do a certain amount of sets x reps and I follow that. Yet, I make no progress because my recovery is different from said person.
