What are /fit/s thoughts on dynamic tension? Pic related, man who popularized it in the 1920's
Also called Loadless training in Russia.
According to Verkhoshansky, it's just as good as lifting, but not exactly the same (strength proportion of agonists and antagonists differs a bit).
Have your gains helped you pull?

>Have to lift heavy ass weights multiple times a week to get big
>Have to just stop eating to lose weight
eating a lot when food is available is the correct behavior from the evolutionary and physiological point of view
basically there's something wrong with skeletons but in these times having a smaller appetite makes life easier
How efficient are weighted pushups as a chest workout?
Explain bulking to me. If it raises bf% why is it needed for building muscle? Surely fat storage doesn't do anything for you. Is there a sweet spot like 100 cal over maint that all gets used for muscle building?
I'm going to be starting this myself here soon and am also somewhat confused. My understanding is that calories are only part of the equation, the other part being your macros. If you're not getting enough protein then your surplus won't matter.
But I understand what you're asking and I am wondering the same thing - what is the limit on how much your body can use for muscle growth? At what point does your body say "this is enough surplus for muscle repair, either shit out the rest or store it as fat"?
I think +200 calories is the accepted lean bulk amount. It's low enough that even if you're storing fat beyond muscle repair, it won't be a big deal. I think 500 cal bulk might just be a meme. And if it isn't, I hear a lot of complaints about losing gains when cutting all that off.
if im not a powerlifter is there any point of doing straight bar deadlifts as opposed to trap bar? ive been doing trap bar lately and it feels so much better.
the trap-bar is more of a standing leg press and since it shifts the load a little more forward you use more of your quads rather than your posterior chain because of where you position the bar and it also drastically changes the bar path. If your goal is to replace the deadlift which is a posterior heavy movement I suggest you look for other alternatives OP

Quick Question, if every martial art was represented by one person each, and they were all put in a big arena, which art would come out on top?
