I think for most exercises that can be performed with dumbells or a barbell, the asnwer is to mix it up.

Barbells let you handle more weight. Dumbells call more stabilizers into action and they also help fix any left/right imbalances.

Matt, I am not going to argue one way or another. But I just want to say this - just because you got good results going over an hour doesn't mean you could not get BETTER results keeping it under 1 hour. Of course it is also possible that results would be worse. For me anythin beyond 1 hour is a was...

Going hand in hand with the that Stephen put up, a very popular method of leaning out back in the 50's and 60's, before the bodypart splits got real popular was circuits and or PHA style training. PHA-peripheral heart action. These were simply circuits rotating from lower to upper body, done one ri...

I used to have some lower back aches but squatting and deadlifting have strengthened my back, it was probaply...

Re: Rest time between sets

Okay, sorry to make another thread, but while I'm here I had another thought. You guys say to keep your workout under an hour, that's because of the increase in cortisol, right? Anyway my workouts usually run around an hour and twenty minutes I know I can do them in less time because I used to run ...

That is an excellent question. In short no. It does however, increase lung capacity and it increaes the ability of the heart to respond to short term maximal effort. It will help you expend more energy in maximal type effort for short periods of time. In short it helps your sprints. These are good ...

I believe you are packing way too many exercises in your ful body routines. Choose 3-4 compund moves (squat, deadlift, press, row) and 1-3 auxilary moves, keep it to 1 hour or less and you have a better workout than any 2 hour workout you can imagine. You can design 2 or 3 different full body WO so ...

You guys need to use some name. This guest thing is confusing. I never use a belt. The body is a unit and when you squat or deadlift, your muscles work in concert. What is the point of lifting more than your core can support? To me, the point of exercise is to strengthen your whole body. Keith I ag...

How about the good old upper/lower split? It makes a lot more sense to me personally than trying to mix and match all these body parts. Also consider push/pull as another option.

Hi. You may not like this answer but here goes... Take that balloon OUT! I know you may have spent a lot of money on the procedure in the first place, and it would cost more to now remove it, but in MY OPINION do it if you can. 1200 kCal is rediculous for 78kg person.
