    Do you train with music on?

    Since I was a music person, I tend to fall in love with music each time that I am working out at the gym and that is one of the ways that I keep pushing up my drive to complete my daily drills at the gym centre. I've come to noticed that training without music playing on my headset is quite difficult for me and I always get tired doing so. So, do you train well with music as well?

    Resistance Training

    Resistance training , also known as weight training, relates to any exercise which results in the muscles contracting against an external resistance. Those undertaking resistance training programs do so with the expectation of increasing mass, strength, and/or endurance. Resistance training works by causing microscopic tears in the muscle. These small tears are then repaired in a process known as muscle protein synthesis, which leads to muscle hypertrophy. Catabolism is the state in which the muscle is broken down by your body (muscular atrophy). Resistance training can help to avoid catabolism of muscle, but the individual will still need to consume adequate amounts of protein to outweigh breakdown. Anabolism is the opposite of catabolism and refers to a state of muscle growth (hypertrophy).
  3. Hi all Hoping for some help with a query of mine. I am aware delayed onset muscle soreness (DOMS) is not required for muscle growth, it is a good indicator of one method to increase hypertrophy - muscle damage ( the other two being mechanical tension and metabolic stress). When I first started working out 4 months ago, I would get almost debilitating DOMS (that I do not miss) but I have noticed in recent months - even when increasing volume / reps that the amount of DOMS is almost non-existent or very very mild. I am not complaining about not being sore but it does lead me to question If I am working out hard enough? I hit the gym 5x per week so I am sure its not overall frequency or volume... thoughts?

For those who already achieved it. Do you have any suggestions, tips, ways on how to flatten our belly?
  5. Hey Guys and Gals. Who are your favourite (or not so favourite) fitness youtubers? I really like Jeff Cavalier at AthleanX, Gabriel Sey, VirtruvianPhysique and above all Jeff Nippard. I prefer that they all are commited to either a scientific focus or in the case of Jeff Calalier just a straight up pro who knows how the body works Be interested to hear other suggestions

    Body Recomposition

    Hi All I am in my first year of lifting and looking for advice. I am around about 19% body fat and weigh just under 190lbs. As I am quite new to training I am looking to burn fat and build muscle simultaneously (which is perfectly possible) however I am unsure whether to cut or maintain kcal wise whilst undertaking this body recomp and the information out there seems pretty contradictory re:approach. What do you think? I am leaning more to maintaining at the moment.
