The 2/3 Hybrid Split Routine For Building Muscle

2021-12-03T19:22:21-05:00By |bodybuilding, Weight Training|

I'd like to introduce a new type of "hybrid" split routine designed for building both muscle and strength at the same time. You'll get a lot stronger on this schedule, but because you don't train heavy every day of the week, it's fairly easy on your joints. It also rotates some of the exercises through the week so you don't get bored, and it uses triple progression so you can keep making gains on the same routine for 12 weeks straight.

Exercise For Weight Loss: Is It Useless? The Calorie Compensation Controversy

2021-10-26T09:13:22-04:00By |Exercise & Fitness, Weight Loss & Fat Loss|

For several years now, there has been a theory that when you exercise more, some of the increased calorie burn is "cancelled" because your basal metabolic rate decreases. An internationally publicized study now appears to confirm this, showing 27.7% "energy compensation." This has caused a number of fitness influencers to start claiming exercise doesn't work for weight loss and that "Weight loss is all diet." But what does a closer look at this research really say? Tom Venuto digs deeper and clears up the controversy...
