This is the right answer, muscles themselves can not be more or less firm, you have to distinguish between the "muscles" you see from the outside, and the layer of fat and muscle that is actually there. Firm "muscles" = developed muscles and thin layer of fat. I'd like to add that eating 2/3 of your body weight in protein is most likely deadly though ;-)

As far as getting firmer or more toned muscles, it's ALL about how much body fat you have; the less body fat, the more lean and toned/defined your muscles will be. I would recommend eating slightly less for a couple days to a week just to see if you like the results. Also pectoral specific lifts such as bench, dips and flies would help too. try to be getting ...

Machines are useful for bodybuilding, specialized movements, and working around specific injuries. For people not doing those things (which is most people) machines are not necessary and distract from better training tools. Free weights are the simpler tool. They develop body awareness (proprioception) and have better carry-over to athletics and general ...

I say your muscle fiber doesn't know if you are using a machine or free weights. All it knows is to adapt to the resistance that is being put on it. It does this by recruiting hopefully the most muscle fibers. The only difference I can see is range of motion. And if if you ask john little , and Pete Sisco they claim full motion as a need is a myth for muscle ...

Well it is very easy actually, use some calorie calculator to find out how much of calories you need. Then find a proper macro balance, that you think will work for you. For example, mine is 40% protein 40% carbs 20% fat. As a person who does stronglifts you might not find it good for. Good sources of carbs: ...

Seriously depends on what your looking to do. I personally been lifting for over twenty six years, from my research and what works for me, everyone's body is different. Medium and light weight is safe to use full motion and softly lock out, heavier weight is a big no no. I prefer lifting just short of lock out on medium to heavy days. If I am benching I ...

One clue should be world records in different lifts, and at what age they are set, I'll take the "worlds strongest man" competition as a basis for my calculation of "strongest" age. 2014 - Žydrūnas Savickas - 38 years 2009 - Žydrūnas Savickas - 33 years 2004 - Vasyl Virastyuk - 30 years 1999 - Jouko Ahola - 29 1989 - Jamie Reeves - 27 1979 - Don ...

This depends on what you mean by "physically stronger". There are a few ways of interpreting this question. Is it possible for me to lift heavier weights at 80 than I did at 40? Yes. If you'd never trained a day in your life before 40, and you suddenly started working out, AND barring any other physical illness (this is the real caveat), then it is ...
