figured I could add on to this post since I have a slight “bug”/improvement regarding the logger.
first, I totally love the information you all bring, the programs you guys have made, truly feel this has been worth the investment in my health and can’t thank ya’ll enough!
that said, the part of the logger where you create your OWN workout (under the new program creation feature) does not let you add sets to the exercises you add. also, the rep range I type in for each exercise disappears once I start the workout itself. the only way to add sets is to start the workout and add the sets there, but there’s no way for me to denote the rep ranges for those said sets.
if i am doing something wrong/missing a way to add those sets on the edit page please let me know – cause it very well could be my lack of tech knowledge haha.
but, it would be great to be able to add sets for each exercise on the editing page, have the ability to denote rep ranges for each of those sets, and also indicate if a drop set should follow (similar to how the current programs have the rep range greyed out in the little box & a question mark/note area at the top to denote drops).
I noticed all of these two
Great, thank you guys! Guess its true we always look way too much into our own flaws 😅April 17, 2022 at 11:22 am in reply to: Cutting for Summer #326696
I feel the need to add the fact that mentality plays a huge role. If you go into every cut expecting to not only stop making progress but in fact lose strength, I truly believe you likely will. But if you do the opposite and constantly hype yourself up and not set low-bar expectations this won’t be AS much of an issueApril 16, 2022 at 8:42 am in reply to: 5-12 rep question #325892
That is the entire rep range across all sets. Since theres 2 sets, Im assuming top set is 5-8 and back off is 8-12April 14, 2022 at 8:48 am in reply to: Development #324022
Thank you so much, this really made my day. No worries I got over that comparison game already cause as you said, nowadays there are likely thousands of guys my age if not younger looking insane from things they shouldn’t, and even if not they simply have better genetics and there’s nothing I can do about that but work my ass of. Glad to hear I’m doing it right and sure as hell enjoying it, biggest passion of my life by far. As always appreciate it!April 13, 2022 at 7:48 pm in reply to: Intensifiers #323574
Great, as always appreciate it!April 12, 2022 at 5:37 pm in reply to: Single arm Pulldown – one at a time ? #322322
If you have the time ideally you’d rest at least a little between, fatigue can impact the second arm especially since we train to failure. Same principle applies to any unilateral movements, but obviously you may not have all day and the impact shouldn’t be drastic so you could go right away and rest only after both arms are done
Have you tried working out 4-5x a week? Could see that being much better especially with your limited recoveryApril 8, 2022 at 2:12 pm in reply to: Machine Chest Supported Row (Lat Biased) #318028
I actually have the same machine. I use the neutral grip, but also tried using super short handles and putting them around and that worked well (allowing for more elbow freedom too). But what I find the best for that one is simply doing single arm. Then it just comes down to nailing allignment through body position

I commited the sin of asking before finishing the video 😅 you answered the about leg extension right after, but still curious about something like the bicep curl. Would the same principle you mention about a SA tricep pushdown apply? That the cable gets closer to the elbow so technically mid/lengthened is still trained sufficiently?April 7, 2022 at 8:57 am in reply to: Online Coaching #316519
Great, thank you! Definitely love the design of this app so will keep that in mind! Probably cant afford it to start but will try and switch as the time goes on!April 6, 2022 at 9:04 pm in reply to: Best/easiest protein carb mix #316054
Yep. Hate cream of rice without the protein mixed in (cause I love my protein powder tastes)April 4, 2022 at 7:01 pm in reply to: To much protein? #312871
Simple, you need more calories. Your body has adjusted to your current energy expenditure/intake balance
Oh perfect! ThanksApril 2, 2022 at 5:53 pm in reply to: Sets & Training near or go failure #310466
All programs are 2-3 sets (past the first phase) and yes, its cause of the intensity. Recovery simply isn’t feasible with that maximum intensity if you also did 4-5 sets per exercise, plus its highly unlikely you’d even be able to train that hard for all those sets for an entire workout.
