This article (the first part in a two-part series) provides a thorough but accessible overview of the concurrent training research.
Squatting and deadlifting for high reps can certainly wear you out. But does that mean lifting can actually improve your conditioning as much as traditional cardio modalities?
How much progress can a new trainee expect by July? Here are the realistic training goals, backed by science, that all new lifters can aim for.
We all know at least one scrawny guy with more strength than people who are way bigger and more muscular. How can that happen? We have your answer here.
Should you be training different muscles with different loads and rep ranges based on their predominant muscle fiber type?
How much control do we have over strength and hypertrophy outcomes? Here’s what we know about the relationship between genetics and strength training.
The lats are “pull muscles,” and the bench press is a push. Why did people start emphasizing the lats for bench, and is their importance overstated?
Some lifters relish the pain of DOMS (or delayed onset muscle soreness) as an indicator of success, but is that really the case?
It’s impossible to know exactly how much muscle someone can build drug-free, so we approached this problem probabilistically, using published data and a fair amount of math to see how much extra muscle steroids help you build, and to estimate the probability that someone is drug-free based on their degree of muscularity.
A yearly training plan is long-term, flexible tool to help organize your training. Here are some pointers for creating your own plan.
