Nothing feels as good as a big deadlift. Then it's over, and you have to wait until next session to feel that again. In the meantime, every other sport I do including simply climbing subway stairs gets slower! My body simply never has... (more)

You really should consider educating yourself on Doug McGuff and Body by Science. First of all, you're conflating skill training and strength and conditioning training. Second of all, you're probably compromising athletic performance because... (more)

I am interested in increasing my strength and "leaning out", if you will, and not particular about increasing mass. I have heard and read the recommendations in regards to sets, reps and load for strength as opposed to hypertrophy, but am confused... (more)

After reading this post on Robb Wolf's site I'm a little curious. What Matt Lalonde seems to be describing is a calorie restricted, low carb diet. Yet as he progressed, he reports muscle development along with fat loss. The fat loss part is... (more)

It should be noted that this article is from 2009, back when Mat was experimenting with lower carb paleo... I don't have the link right now, but I believe in a podcast with Robb, Mat described how one day he "hit a wall" and almost passed out from... (more)

Now I know the common response to this question is muscle tone is just a product of muscle mass with a low level of bodyfat, which of course I agree with. Some will even say "high reps" for muscle tone, which I believe is nonsense. Beyond a... (more)

Read this if you haven't already: Fuckarounditis I think you had it right at the start; muscle mass + low body-fat percentage. Try the body builder style workout/diet but stop eating steaks and chicken breasts like it's your job when you look... (more)

I was recently listening to episode 1092 of Super Human Radio and they had NASA research scientist Per Tesch on the show discussing this. In summary, he claimed their results showed better results in training a muscle group for strength or... (more)

My experience is anecdotal, but I know a lot of pro and olympic athletes would back it up. When training for strength increases if you do any near intense cardio with the same muscle groups for 20-30 minutes prior to intense strength sets it is... (more)
