3 Reasons Why Hardcore Lifters Need a Routine Check-Up I get it you’re generally healthy, wait times are often long, and nobody welcomes added expense. Who would want to go to the doctor anyway?Engineered to meet the needs of the most-hardcore lifters, the TriBase Reign 2 won’t hold you back when you’ll try to smash your next deadlift PB. View Deal Benefits of push-pull workout #2: gives.

(3) This is one of the biggest reasons why it becomes increasingly more difficult to grow as you become more experienced, and all the more reason experienced lifters need to start training more frequently. Bottom Line: The body responds to exercise by increasing protein synthesis. As a beginner, this response is intense and lasts a long time. Let’s break down the reasons, and give you lots of options to work with. What you need to know about your knees.

First, compared to sturdier joints like the hip, knees tend to be a bit more fragile and prone to injury as many of us age. Of course, your situation may vary, but there are a few structural reasons for this tendency. That is one of the reasons why maximum effort work needs to be treated like volume for the natural trainee: don’t do too much of it or you will kill your gains and may even cause you to regress.

So while you can do a fairly high amount of work when doing strength-skill work (80-90% not to failure), you absolutely cannot train in the maximum. Hydraulic lifters use oil in their body housings to maintain a certain pressurized height, which determines the opening length of the valves. The adjustable valve lifter can be adjusted to determine the height of the valve opening.

Both types of lifters need proper oil pressure and lubrication to work correctly. With that distinction in mind, the next step is to appreciate that while age affects recovery rates, so do a lot of other things, including: Muscle mass: Hard-training people with more muscle take longer to recover than less muscular people. Strength levels: Stronger people do more damage to themselves during workouts than weaker people do. I wrote about this in my article “Why Full-Body.

Question:I know there are a lot of variables to this question but do you find that older lifters (over 55) respond better to full body training 2 days a week or focusing on one main lift a day 4 days a week?Answer:It doesn’t matter at all for any lifter. People get so caught up in this stuff, and I totally understand why, but it doesn’t matter at all. Just like where you put the bar when you. Older lifters need to be focusing on balanced programming and a holistic physical mindset.

3. Maintenance isn’t a dirty word, and guess what? It comes down to this; either you maintain your physicality as an older lifter or you can join the majority of older individuals in a rapid decline in both health and function. 4.

The problem is, many lifters don’t know how to push themselves, don’t understand how to properly implement progressive overload, and overvalue variety and novelty.

This routine too can be done by working out all the body parts in a single day (3 days a week), or using the push-andpull method of training (4 days a week), or doing a single body part a day (5–6 days a week).

  • Seemed a little deceptive to claim that dairy is insulinogenic and then omit high fat low protein dairy like heavy cream and butter from the slide. For the record: Butter has an insulin index of 2…

  • I really love how you take time out to explain the moves to prevent injuries, this is a great approach to your workouts and routine.

  • i love that your thumbnail isnt a nother butt clickbait pic and that you realy look and talk like you know what you are talking about. i like your professional style thank you. +sub

  • hi, I have mild pain in my leg that comes from my hip.. sometimes I have stiff back, also walking long distance makes my back uncomfortable, and burning pain increases slightly in my leg. Are these symptoms of bulged disk. it’s been 3 weeks now. pain goes and comes back.

  • You mention that physical limitations strongly increase the likelihood of getting an injury. Can these physical limitations refer to mobility limitations as well? For example limitations that impair proper form (e.g. tight ankles, hamstrings ) and force the lifter to compensate in a way.

  • Aloha Paul and Paul:) Excellent short talk to show people many of the confused parts of their minds that they have been told about the plant versus animal based food source. I have now been on a carnivore ( 2 pounds of a variety of gras fed/ finished organs muscle meat / fish fertile eggs and fruit based only before I workout) diet for the past 8 months training 4 days a week for 1 hour or less at a time and have gained over 22 pound of solid muscle form the mal-nourished plant based diet I was on for the past 15 years. I will pass this around to my 100k subscribers that also need to hear these different perspectives. I have a good story to tell your subs too if you want me to share on your channels and collaborate with mine.:) Mahalo bruthas, Robert Cassar

  • Hi as im a non responder or low responder can someone help me with my program? Ive been eating over maintenance and lifting for 7 months right now and yet my gains and strength gains compared to others are just crap. I do upper lower split. I usually do 2 exercises for every muscle group of 4 sets 7-8 reps. Please if someone can help me. Any suggestions?

    And it really pisses me of when they tell me “you dont look like you lift”

  • Any thoughts on really long term (years) of regularly training to failure? Not sure if you can draw conclusions from that study or comment on experience. Also, please consider bringing Greg back next podcast.

  • “Temporary host, Greg Nuckols”

    He seems like a permanent host by the way things are going. He should be anyways. The guy’s very knowledgeable

  • This is awesome! I was just thinking about changing my programing next week and I was SUPER excited to hear about the Average 2 Savage. Perfect timing…thank you Greg! Eric, your recipes get my votes!

  • Any thoughts on Rhiannon Lovelace? As far as feats of strength, she has the strongwoman u64kg deadlift record(suit+straps) around 272 kg, she is shooting for 300 kg!! Check her out if you havent, she owns a gym Kaos Strength in the UK.

  • Paul Check I am disappointed as I have followed you for over 7 years and you were my main motivation to finding my health. I reached out to you several times via email to show that this rat of a human being has plagiarized my information. But I guess you have to help your own.

  • I have been anxiously checking my subscription box all day worrying if you now made it tri-weekly. Looking forward for this as always!

  • Paul Chek called him out about one pound of meat a day being too much especially for a sedentary person. Watch Frank Tufano. Iron overload and copper/zinc inbalance. Remember, everything in existence is probably about balance. Diet, nature etc

  • im a shitty non responder too:D we are many! we are one! lets kill all the fucking shitty annoying high responders! they didn’t deserve the gains!

  • In the spirit of you taking on board comments made about the podcast, could I request a brief summary bit on each of your sections done at the end of your discussions? Sometimes you do this naturally, sometimes not.

    Although both Erin and Geg’s dulcet tones are a joy to the ear, they sometimes allow me to drift off into a mental state I’d describe as “no longer listening”.

  • On an anecdotal level I have actually seen this in my own training, in my early training days I was convinced I was a non responder, but just my upper body, my legs I always assumed were my strike of luck as they grew incredibly easy and are still somewhat disproportionate, they just seemed to respond incredibly easy, now as I went through education and dug deeper into sport science, it clicked one day, my leg frequency was always x1 per week, and my upper around 2-3x, with both similar levels of intra session volume, I started programming for myself properly and when I actually brought my upper body volume down to the same level as my lower volume, suddenly it all started to respond extremely quickly, it turns out I was training above my MRV for upper body, and in the sweet spot with my lower, however I got so used to my upper training volume and my work capacity adapted to allow me to do it, but I was training at a diminished level the whole time, I learnt what it felt like to train my upper body in a fully recovered state, which was kind of nice.

    I think alot of us can be quite critical about ourselves and can be quick to jump to the genetics route.

  • Great video Kai!

    I like the order you did those in, with the warm up first.

    The last exercise is cool, I gave it go just then. Thanks for the video.

  • which science nerds came up with this reps in reserve lolol…theres been a ton of muscle built over the last 30-50 yrs and suddenly theres this reps in reserve…its hilarious

  • Until I listened to dr.mike I was spinning my wheels for 2-3 yrs I looked super streamlined but strong as hell

    I added a crapped ton of reps and dropped the weight and I’m gaining like crazy

    Instead of 540lbs for 5×3 now it’s
    135lbs for 30×3

  • Totally get the idea of eating the whole animal. I do the same. However his stance on vegetables is ridiculous. Very bad interpretation of science, Saladino notoriously doesn’t read the she studies just the abstracts. Good high quality meats, some fruit depending on activity levels and plenty of vegetables seems to be optimal for me and here’s the kicker, carnivore dieters tend to have decent blood work except their cholesterol!

    I eat more meat than most but thanks to the vegetables, my LDL was in the healthy range last I checked it. That to me pretty much closed the case on vegetables being important for health.

  • I Had a Lot of Stress for years because from anxiety and was going often to muscle Failure sometimes in every Set and i Maybe gain Just 4 5 kg muscle in 3years ( from the Point where i start Gym to now) I Felt often empty and weak. I think this is a big gain killer.

  • i love paul chek’s work but am still baffled by the fascination with the carnivore diet or how being a vegetarian was that negative of an experience for him. i still have never heard of any carnivores mention any studies or proof of the long term benefits of a carnivore or heavily meat-based diet. or note the large number of vegans that live long full healthy lives, and the large amount of research showing the benefits of a vegan diet (or a heavily plant based diet)

    I was vegan for 4 years (now i eat animal products maybe one or twice a month. no reason in particular, i am just experimenting with that as sure, maybe there are benefits to high quality animal foods once in a while, so i am open to that) and had great physical and mental health throughout being 100% vegan… completed grad school, physical performance improvement, etc etc.

    but to each their own… if anyone has any insight or resources i may want to look into please let me know. (i am currently reading through how to eat move and be healthy as well)

  • Does James have some type of chronic burping problem? Every single podcast/ interview I’ve heard him on, he’s always burping lol. Unless his parents just never taught him proper manners?

  • Don’t be like me and put a door anchor in the door improperly. Thing popped out and hit me in the groin horribly. Terrible bruise and scared me so much I went to the doctor.

  • BUUURP!!! Excuse me….nice to see you having more Americans on the podcast again, Steve!! Hahah you guys knocked it out of the park again as usual. There is always this thing of irony with your podcasts. I got crap sleep last night so this one is perfect!! Thank you!!

  • Do you think, without an alarm, waking up when we wake up is a good gauge for how much sleep we need? I figure our body will wake up when we’re fully recovered or is that overkill


  • Guys. you really working hard to get Ig noble price for those studies on risk injury. Folks who reported injury(prior physical limitation) before study where injured further down the line. Genius

  • Hey Steve, I have a question I’m hoping you can clarify. In regards to the MRV concept, is there a maximum limit on how many sets can be performed on an individual exercise? Reason being is during certain movements like squats or bent over rows, after about 5 or 6 sets I find my lower back getting fatigued and I have to either reduce the weight or wait a very long time in between sets to do another one. It seems like an inefficient way to train and I don’t want to risk wasting time with junk volume. Thanks!

  • I just ordered 4kg of minced meat (50%meat, 25%liver, 25% heart) all grassed and organic. A nice way to introduce the rest of the family to organ meat without scare them away:)

  • Good talk Jamie! Interesting point about better recovery, I have done a couple of workouts recently in a fasted state (one atleast 60 hours that I can remember) and I actually felt much stronger than the last time I did weights and my muscles werent nearly as sore, now I know it’s because of less oxidative stress!!

  • If the objective is so often to shift the weight onto the heels, why wear sneakers which elevate the heel?

    Would barefoot training be more effective?

  • So much unbelievably insightful stuff here. I loved the idea of having little video clips of the training as a part of what the researchers show to the outside world. It’s 2019, we can do better now.

  • Definitely will do these this morning. Also, do you have any exercises for a torn meniscus? Was diagnosed but cannot afford the therapy.

  • Are these yoyr suggestions because the worked for you or are they general suggestions? And WTF, I’m skinnier than you but, my God, my stomach is not tight like that at all! I need to fjnd a PT like you in CT, stat

  • These exercises are really helping me.  I could really feel in my glutes (which has not happened for a long time.).  You are a very good trainer!

  • Sexy and Informative video!  I usually do weighted hip thrusts along and glute bridge variations exercises I finna try some of these to switch things up. 

  • Hi Kai, i wanted to say i love what your doing, love the info! Also if i may pay you compliment i think you are absolutely breath taking! This is coming from a 6ft 200lb man���� with patella tendonosis, please keep making videos ����

  • 1:06:51 That was cathartic. The two things that get me irrationally annoyed are 1. the mentioned correlation!= causation and when people say that something tells you NOTHING AT ALL based on an arbitrarily decided “small sample size” regardless of the study. Those are the two tropes that people who don’t know and don’t care about science just throw out there to dismiss something they don’t like.

    When a gym acquaintance tells me “yeah but these studies on training have such a small sample size, they tell us nothing at all”. You goddamn idiot, do you actually think that when you take 30 males between 20 and 25 years old who bench their bodyweight that your physiology is completely different when you’re literally of the same age, gender and strength level?

  • I just made a mix of minced grass feed beef liver, lamb liver, beef kidneys, and lamb hearts. I then make small individual portions freeze it for 2 weeks (apparently kills any parasites or bad bacteria) then I take one out of the freezer per day and bamm there is my multi vitamin,oh yes, I do eat it raw!

  • These guys don’t know about Gokshura and Ashwagandha, wow!!.What a let down, i thought they were experts:-P. i will go and give myself a compassionate tug after this.

  • in case anyone forgot the second move is called a single leg medicine ball dead lift with an overhead press or SLMBDLWOP as its better known. otherwise ty for the video.

  • Hey Paul, thank you for all of this great information. I was just wondering, if i were to buy a farm in America, which area would be the best to do it and have the least pollution, least toxicity and cleanest water etc. Kind regards

  • Thank you! I’ve been waiting to hear your stance & wisdom about this subject… Whether the reported great results are from the all-meat factors or simply from a lack of foods that do and have always done the body bad. Thanks for hitting this subject! Paul, thank you for everything you bring to the world and share so freely.

  • I’ve been fascinated by the idea of eating animal organs, for that idea you discussed that they may have nutrients unique to that organ that we can benefit from. However, I tried cooking and eating cow kidney’s once and I just could not stomach it. The chewiness of it, the taste. Perhaps I cooked it wrong? What are the best ways to prepare these organs so it’s not so hard to eat?

  • Didn’t Chris b release info about max voluntary activation being higher in small volume muscles therefore biceps should be trained less not more. Which would be the opposite of the claim in this vid.

  • Hello Paul ( & Dear Master ) As a very intelligent and spiritual man, did you ever look at your natal chart of yours and penny by simple curiosity? If so have you found that planet & star align well or match well between your two signs? Thank you very much for your answer.

  • Balance (i.e., working chest and back) is so important, both from an injury preventive perspective, as well as symmetry (if you’re interested in looking good).  Over many years I’ve seen so many people ignoring one, usually the back, and they pay the price.  Good vid.

  • Paul please make a Corona virus video and straight us up again what we should do. So sleep early and cold showers and what else should we do against it?
