    Yeah you can do that or hit “add another week”, Joe made a video on it on here if you wanna go watch it. It’s either the video that shows on the program or one of the first ones as soon as you hit tv.

    You could jog down the exercises and rep schemes and the select “make your own program” and input them that way. I don’t know if there’s a way you can make it stay in that order normally though.

    Being sore does not equal growth, it’s the same for sweating. You could have a great workout and not be sweating at the end. For legs that would be very hard, but. Lots of factors play into it, you’re recovery could be good enough to where you won’t be sore, or you could be walking enough to where the toxins get cycled through your blood and destroyed. I’m sure coaches will give a better answer, but as long as you see growth, I don’t know why you wouldn’t be happy.

    Don’t forgot, just cause you can, doesn’t mean you should. I CAN do heroin everyday, but I don’t… for obvious reasons. I’m 20, sleep 8-9 hours a day, get my nutrition in and pretty much sit around or work if i’m not training. So my recovery is there, and mentally I can train everyday, but I don’t. I used to and saw my lifts drop, like you said. I train in the morning as well. Don’t forget it’s not just muscles that need rest, nerves, ligaments and joints need it too and they take longer than muscle and your mentals. I would say active rests are your best bet if you absolutely need to, if your gym has yoga or something like that, that can benefit your recovery may help as well. I personally go golfing if I can’t stand sitting around.

    Thank you Joe, I think I’ve been slacking too much on the social aspect and have been talking to my gym about possibly getting a job there so hopefully it helps set me straight.

    That’s a very broad question since I don’t have any back story. So a few things. Assuming you have a few years left which feels like a long time : 1.break everything down into shorter goals. Weekly. Monthly. Semester etc. create a habit just like anything else. 2.What sparked you to take this up to begin with? How can you re-ignite it. 3. Choose a social circle that supports you. A team to get you all through it. 4. My key was balancing the major with a minor that was simply for enjoyment. I majored in computer science but rather than minoring in business like everyone else I minored in music. It kept me sane and looking forward to every day. I hope that helped. (Find what killed the spark and acknowledge it and control it. Maybe that will need some outside help.). Good luck!!!

    Thank you David! I’ll have to apply some of those this coming semster

    Thank you for the response. I will definitely check out the videos. But I do understand what you mean by less is sometimes better . Thanks again. I’ll check them out for sure

    If you want a non-coaches opinion on this too, what he means by “less is sometimes better” is muscle growth comes from recovery, not the training session itself. 90% of people probably came from high volume type training with probable poor execution and not close to failure translating it to “bullshit volume” where you can’t actually recover from the workouts, and you don’t actually train hard enough and progress to grow anyways. Now the coaches and I don’t know your recovery rate, so you could potentially recover from it, but if sometimes getting proper sleep or nutrition is hard, or you work a blue collar job or something like that. As someone who’s been on this app for 6 months now, I would say switching to low volume and just going to true failure/maybe RIR 1, I’ve noticed changes and friends/family have to. I’ve got bigger, while also losing some weight. It’s not for everyone, but I like it. Hope this helps

    I’m sure the coaches will give better insight, but consistency reigns king.

    I second flank and skirt, if you’re big on mexican food like me, lots of recipes use those cuts, specially carne asada.
