Posted by:

Eager to cut! Set the date for next Wednesday December 28th (post holidays) to start my 3rd cutting (fat loss) phase @ base with Renaissance Periodization.

Taylor Carpenter 1RM 460lb Sumo Deadlift | Charlotte Personal Trainer

Posted by:

Motivated from all the Black Friday purchases coming to the gym, I felt some extra strength Friday night. Hadn’t attempted to go much over 400lbs in a few months and decided to push it a little bit.

Hit 460 for 1 rep and then attempted 480. I didn’t quite get the 480 but I thought I would. Typically new equipment, new exercises are a motivating trigger for me. I’ll post a little bit later in the week with all the Black ...

You don’t need to do 1 rep maxes always. If you’re more comfortable using lighter weights you can see strength improvements with higher rep schemes.

The best workout programs are always easy to ...

The most important aspect of your workout program is…

Posted by:

Adherence

Generally, one size never fits all for anything. What works for me, it may not work for you, it may not work for John Doe. Just as you need consistency without your diet, you need to consistently get your workouts done, if they’re not fun then that’s unlikely to happen and that’s probably why people have a hard time sticking to diets. Diets are often not fun due to eating lower or larger quantities compared to what you would prefer. ...
