    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

    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?

    Tim just got top 5 (4th) in both the masters & open competition at the 2007 New Englands. Congrats to him. He looked great, as the pix of him on the MD site show.

    Default Q-A

    Musclemag once ran an article on masters training that talked about "useta" exercises--things we used to be able to do in a gym, but at the age of over 40, can't anymore. Are there any exercises you suggest those over 40 should avoid, or perhaps modify?
