    Hi Scott, I've just gone through many platinum member pages, and I am not sure where to start. I am 31, 5'9 lost around 30 pounds (thanks to interval training cardio) and will loose 30 more. I want to add some weight training but not to bulk up.

    So far I have checked http://muscularstrength.com/Full-Workout-Programs/Fat_Loss program, but not sure that I should start with this or something else.

    My goal for the next 6 months is to loose 30 more pounds, along with 3 days (in a week) strength training. Please suggest that which program should I start?

    FYI - Is 3 days in a week for cardio (interval training cardio) and 3 days workout a good strategy?

    Regards,

    Jatin Chhabra

    Hey hey bro! Just responded to your other @forum post and the post on your board. So I've covered what kind of program you should go for.. then it comes down to diet for losing fat. Have you been to the @mealplan page to figure out what your calories and macros should be based on your goal? Post them here when you have them and we can adjust them where needed to get you sorted!

    Wanted to give you some credit for putting this list together. Powerful stuff man.

    I am a big advocate for the mindset of motivation when it comes to bodybuilding. I have a tonne of these different motivation quotes/posters around my office and gym.

    The Arnie quote tops all of those!

    Hey guys ,

     

    Is it okey to apply two different progressive overload methods on same workout?

    For example, I decided to use a most classic progressive overload method by increasing the weight every week.

    But what if I can increase weight on my chest,legs and back but cant on shoulders,biceps and triceps.

    If I dont do anything those muslces are going to adapt so can I apply different progressive overload method by increasing reps on them ?

    Or should I just focus on one method until I hit weight plateu on all exercises and then switch to other method?

     

    Thanks

    If you can't increase the weight, you can try something like tempo reps. Slowing down the tempo and doing pause reps is a great way to overload as well.

     

    However, if you're increasing weight with your chest and back, then training triceps and biceps after them for example, then it's kind of normal for the weight you lift there to be a little stagnant. Because they will be fatigued from the main lifts.

     

    Either way, what you could also do is increase the weight even if it means doing a few less reps. Do as many reps as you can, wait 5-10 seconds, then complete your set. Overtime you should be able to get through all the reps without resting as you get stronger.
