No, it doesn't really matter. Calories consumed is not a zero sum game, where each day the counter is reset. The quality and timing of your meals will matter much more than the day to day exact count of calories. As long as you run an overall deficit, in the long run you will lose weight. That being said, if you plan on an extremely heavy day, I would plan ...

Smolov Jr. is possibly the best bench routine for pure numbers. Prilepin's Chart is also famously adapted by a number of big strength training routines (such as Westside Barbell). There is also something called the Power Matrix that a friend of mine used to get his bench to 365 lbs (@180 lbs) in under a year. If your friend progressed linearly, that ...

If he went from 135 to 405 in five months, is doing full range (or even partial, really) and has gotten huge, there's one answer. Your friend's "secret workout" is anabolic steroids, probably injecting testosterone once a week. I should add: your friend is definitely lifting a lot as well and working out hard, but there's simply no naturally occurring ...

Workout plan that is low cost and can be done at home? There are tons of free calisthenics routines that can be found over the internet. Here are a few of them :- Baristi Beginners Workout ---> Can't do pull ups? Do a negative pull ups or incline pull ups/inverted rows. ---> Can't do dips? Do bench dips (either with foot on the floor or on another bench) ...

There's a very common misconception here. Many people think that certain types of exercise will give you one body shape or the other. The reasoning is (more or less explicitly), that since power lifters are bulky, working out like a power lifter will make you bulky, and since dancers are fit and lean, "working out" like a dancer will make you fit and lean. ...

As others have said, this looks like a reasonable routine. But... I would say that it looks like you're halfway to doing circuit-training. Have you thought of going to a class for a few weeks? It will be hard at first, but it'll certainly help with the motivation as just doing this sort of thing at home on your own can be a grind. Besides, going to some ...

If you want to lose belly fat, then I recommend doing some more cardio (some form of running). However, in order to get lean, this workout seems just fine if you stay committed. If you are looking to add more muscle mass, try adding some more free weights in there. Good luck!

Make sure to eat enough, you're very light for that height, thin people often have a hard time eating enough to add weight, but when they do, they tend to add lean mass and strength.

As long as your form is good, then you are more unlikely to injure yourself. For rows, some 'body English' is fine to help drive progressions, especially since it is not a competitive movement, so being strict with momentum isn't inherently necessary. If doing Pendlay rows (as advocated by Mehdi), you can have a bit of thoracic extension to aid with ...

Squat - 110 lbs BP - 75 lbs Row - 80 lbs OHP - 55 lbs DL - 165 lbs As you can see the barbell row and the OHP are lagging behind. Your row is stronger than your bench press which is actually really good, I think your numbers look terrific to be honest. Just keep on the program. The overhead press is probably one of the toughest lifts out there. ...

If you are seeing changes in your body and gaining strength you should stick to your routine in spite the coaches or the people say about it, where I train the free weights exercises are kind of odd for most people but let me tell you those exercises are the best because they involved a lot of muscles. But you have to keep a good form in order to keep away ...

If your goal is general fitness then you're doing plenty of running, walking, and swimming, but your deadlift is quite light. Sixteen reps is also a lot for the deadlift. If it's possible to use more weight but fewer reps per set, do that. 60kg to 100kg should be entirely doable for you within a few months. Other ways to get good use out of your limited ...

Run for 2-3 hours. If your not running with a straight posture you'll get a sore neck or back. The long time allows you to focus on staying straight like. The movement allows you to program this posture into your frame of mind more. I have a posture problem that I ignore and the longer I got without running the worst it gets. I knew its not as bad when Im ...
