comment Are multiple sets with decreasing weight and no rest between them a good idea?
I didn't mean to say you're boneheaded, and I'm sorry that I phrased my question in a way that it could be taken that way. I'm trying to use an example of a program that we would all agree is boneheaded.

comment To increase strength why wouldn't anaerobic reps be done as quickly as possible to fatigue the fast twitch muscle fibers?
I'm not sure strength is classified as anaerobic or aerobic; aren't those are qualifiers on efforts?

Any stress will create adaptation in a sufficiently unadapted individual. That means that 8 pound kettlebell-aerobics DVDs are both effective for some people. It does not mean that the same 8-pound kettlebell DVD isn't highly inefficient and totally boneheaded for most people.

More muscle bulk, somewhat, may depend on how big you are already. Increased strength, not really. Better strength-endurance, absofrigginlutely.

A barbell weighs as much as it weighs. I've seen 45, 40, and 22 pounders. I worry that this is what SE calls a "how long is a piece of string" question.

comment Training for strength: How is my training regimen and diet combo?
Looks fine to me. I bet you'll get stronger. If you can work out more often I'd do so. If you have time and want to add sprints on the off-days, or pistols, or whatever, that would be good too. But if your schedule is tight, don't sweat it. This will work to a significant degree.

comment What additional exercises do I add to the Madcow 5x5 program?
Were you doing a linear progression? What made you choose Madcow? How much rest do you take between sets or exercises? What were the 15-18 exercises you did previously?

comment What additional exercises do I add to the Madcow 5x5 program?
Were you doing a linear progression (SS/SL) before starting Madcow? How heavy do your work sets feel?

@oshirowanen The line in the FAQ is trying to make the point that nutrition-only questions are off-topic. At the moment, that includes this question. If the question were edited to relate to exercise (which seems difficult), it would be fine. How would you change the FAQ to be more specific?
