      On the training you listed, which works better for your bulking and cutting



      I still train heavy but I do more intensity techniques rather than just moving big weights around.

      I do:
      Giant-Sets
      Tri-Sets
      Drop-Sets
      Rest Pause
      Super-Sets
      Half Reps
      Behind the 8-ball again

        NABBA,at various times,I`ll use those techniques no matter what my goal may be.............adding size or getting lean is mostly a matter of diet, and how much if any, cardio you do.

        An overabundance of calories adds bodyweight/size,and a calorie deficit will help you lose weight/fat.

                Hey Tim, where do you stand on the question of building muscle and losing fat at the same time?

                  Alex,it can definately be done............I do it during every contest prep.

                  Protein builds muscle,not excess calories.......excess calories will make you gain weight,but it doesn`t necessarilly mean that you`ve gained muscle.

                  Protein synthesis doesn`t stop happening just because someone is on a fat loss diet plan.

                  Keep protein high at all times, and a bit higher during dieting................protein = muscle!!

                  Just my opinion,going by my own personal experience.

                          Hey T,

                          Do you stay away from any exersizes to protect joints/etc. Like bench presses or ATG squats?

                          I'm currently doing, like everything. But I have had quite a bit of joint pain. chondroitin/msm/glucosamine and omega-3s have helped. therefore i continue pursuing moderate to heavy weights on virtually all lifts.

                            What do you consider high?

                            2gms/lb?
