Is a de-load period crucial for gaining strength in the most optimal way?
How do you feel about BCAAs and when do you think they should be taken, Thank you Marc!
Is time under tension important?
I had a personal training class this past semester at school where time under tension was the main focus. My professor, a former strength and conditioning coach said that time under tension is best way to promote muscle growth. I was curious as to whether or not time under tension is as important as he and many others seem to claim.
I don't believe counting during the set is the way to go. The key is, go intense and lift controlled. I don't believe you can be intense when counting the time it takes to complete reps.
what is your preferred exercises to train your abs? Also how frequent should you train your abs? Lastly if your at a low body fat (sub 8%) and have a good 6 pack, do you think it's better to focus on other lagging body parts rather than spend more time on training your abs if you are pressed for time?
Ab training is all about CORE! Goblet squats, planks and other functional movements. I do not believe crunches do much. Train them daily if you'd like--I do this with my squat everyday program seen here: https://content.tigerfitness.com/squat-every-day-rehab-health/
You should never have to purposely train abs. Your CORE lifts like deadlift and squat are more than enough!
What's your opinion on training muscles more than once per week? Can this be effective for bringing up lagging body parts? Do you think this can potentially lead to overtraining?
1) I think you can definitely train muscles more than once a week, depends on personal preference.
2) I do not think this will benefit you on lagging bodyparts--train every bodypart like it is lagging!
3) Overtraining is very hard to reach. Just be sure to build in 1-3 rest days per week
I've been taking your carb 10 for a month now and it has been working great and i'm going to start taking machine fuel intra-workout but for me who's someone trying to build muscle and burn fat simultaneously would it be better to drink them before my workout so I can use the carbs during my workout?
