comment Can adding a weight vest improve fat loss?
@Kate I'm already working on a diet and a routine. My question is specifically about a piece of equipment and if it will aid in my goal of body fat % reduction.

@Megasaur my question is specific to using a weight vest to increase calorie usage during activities/workouts. Nothing to do with diets.

comment Why are my traps not growing?
@Andreas how heavy is "heavy enough"? I'm maxing at 315 and I started the program at 280 so I don't understand how it isn't heavy enough for me.

comment Why are my traps not growing?
I was thinking that maybe I'm not going heavy enough, but I'm pretty much at max right now. I was thinking that maybe I'm not burning out with enough weight though. My traps are good sized when I flex, but I'm looking for them to pop when I'm not flexing. Maybe I need a diff routine. I'll look into strong lifts like you listed.

@DaveLiepmann Normally 2-3 days with no workout (or only cardio)

comment Why are my traps not growing?
Ah, well I am bench pressing and doing overhead presses but I was doing those for my chest and they aren't much weight, was doing them more for tone. I haven't done pedlay rows in a while but I am doing a variation of them with a dumbell one arm at a time (Kneeling One Arm Row)

@DForck42 I'm lost, what do you mean? From seeing what? What do my squats have to do with anything?

DAve, diet is normal, I eat healthy, take protein and vitamins. Probably 3000-4000 calories a day. I rest 4-5 days before doing traps and shoulders again

comment How can I reduce bloating while taking creatine?
It could be the other ingredients. As I said, I tried another product similar to Jack3d and I saw some bloating but saw no bloating when taking creatine by itself with juice. I actually ate nothing while taking Jack3d as the caffeine makes my appetite disappear.

@Ivo sorry, I had a question to go with the title but the question morphed and the title was neglected. I always try to make the title as specific as possible in relation to my question. #TitleFail ?

comment How to improve pull-up rep count
Actually, the kids have a swing set, I could use that I suppose. I could put a pulley on it and mimic the machine at the gym with counter weights then work my way up.

comment Is coffee good or bad for your health?
I used to drink coffee all work-day long. I went cold turkey on the caffeine and I felt so much better. No drowsiness and I was able to concentrate better. Of course, I have to have something to drink so I ended up going back to coffee (decaf).

comment How to improve pull-up rep count
@VPeric thanks. It isn't that I don't want to do more pull-ups, but was looking for alternatives. I don't have a bar in my house and I think I need to get one.

comment Increasing explosive power in clap push-ups?
Also, is it possible to focus on two columns at the same time? How would that work, week 1 would be Mass and week 2 would be Strength? Edit: Nevermind, I just needed to read the link you provided.

comment Increasing explosive power in clap push-ups?
How do you read the Load and Speed per rep? I'm thinking that if my max is 250lbs I should be doing 150lbs - 200lbs (Mass column) for load? What about speed? Does this chart apply to all weight training?

comment Protein: Mixing with hot liquids
+1 for the good ideas but is it safe? Also, when I put hot water in my shaker cup it blows the top off.
