Curious what ya'll think of this part specifically:

2018-08-10 00:08:04 UTC  

`Frequency: 5-6 Workouts a Week
I've used the six times a week split during times I wanted to improve body composition (fat loss with muscle retention) at an accelerated pace. Essentially you're just burning more calories each week (duh) than if you were training four times a week.

Any time you're training with such a high frequency, be cognizant of both workload and effort. The three variables you have to adjust to meet the demands for recovery are frequency, volume, and intensity (both relative and perceived).

Since frequency is very high with this split, then either intensity or volume should be limited. If you enjoy training balls-out, stick to a very low volume approach. If you enjoy doing a lot of volume, then back off on the weight selection and leave some reps in the tank on each set.`

Only difference between 5-6 workouts a week, compared to 4 a week, is accelerated fat loss. Do ya'll think that's true? 4 day gives similar mass gain and strength gain compared to 5-6 days?

`Go With Your Goal
For strength-focused lifters, three times a week works best.
For guys looking to build mass, four times a week is money.
For those wanting to improve body composition quickly, six days a week will get the job done.`

oh man

2018-08-10 00:15:39 UTC  

It really depends

2018-08-10 00:38:26 UTC  

@Rogue I've heard that more than once.

Body needs rest

Depends. If you're sitting in a cubicle all day I would say go for 5-6x a week..if you work a physical demanding job then just stick with essential lifts at 4x a week

Some one red pill me on supps for joints. I am in my early 30’s and have never had joint pain until recently. I’ve red up on some forums but each post contradicts the next and I don’t know who to trust. I think my diet may be hurting me a bit there but I’m not sure.

Tumeric is a great herbal supplement to fight inflammation. MSM, Glucosamine, Chondroitin, Collagen, and ashwaganda are pretty good too. Any GNC will carry an abundance of them. Triflex is a relatively cheap formula that combines them, but imo Instaflex or Dr. Joints is a lot better. @JesseJames

2018-08-13 14:46:32 UTC  

@Suomi Stronk great thanks man. I will make a trip to the local gnc and pick some up.

2018-08-13 14:47:40 UTC  

glycine and salt lol

2018-08-13 14:47:44 UTC  

and water

2018-08-13 16:06:03 UTC  

I take every supplement imaginable for joints @JesseJames @Suomi Stronk but I can never really tell you if they work.

Managed to somehow pull my trap today

HuffPo wants Rise Above Movement to be censored by Instagram. Nice! When you’re catching flak, you know you’re above the target.

2018-08-17 02:22:19 UTC  

Violent or no violent, HuffPo tracks down platforms and intimidates them into deplatforming.

2018-08-17 12:06:38 UTC  

So crappy. We have to win now for all those that have suffered personally at this point.

2018-08-22 01:07:04 UTC  

Just started doing 100 burpees each and every day after I get off work now that it's tougher for me to get to the gym. Definitely a quick, killer workout.

2018-08-22 01:37:10 UTC  

That sounds like a killer
