I am a certified personal trainer who services all of Brooklyn in the homes of my clients. I am currently certified by the IFA. Hopefully when I have the time I will be able to complete my NASM certification as well as the FMS certification.

comment Is taking a set to failure recommended for any type of lift or goal?
I once read an article that said going to failure when working for strength is not recommended, but when working for mass there can be some benefits. When I'll find the article again I will post it as an answer.

comment Quads vs Hamstrings in Squats and Lunges
I'm not sure about lunges, but with squats it depends on how low you go. If you reach parelel then you will feel the glutes and hamstrings otherwise it is only a quad exercise which is why you will only feel the quads.

comment What is the correct form for seated shoulder press with dumbbells?
@DavidR so what you're saying is that it isn't necessarily wrong but simply lacks the benefit of also engaging the core while working the shoulders?

comment what is burnt first, muscles(protein) or fat
It will be fat first. As long as you don't go into starvation mode (which happens when you decrease to a dangerously low amount of calories) and you continue to work on your muscles you will be burning fat and not muscles.
