Title says it all.
Looking forward to your new article…
I'd like to see you tackle rest and recovery. Something that addresses what we know about recovering the CNS, muscles, tendons, etc including what supplements are best for recovery. I like your approach of integrating current studies and your honesty when there's not much data out there.
Recovery, that's a good one. Unfortunately it's also one of those 'not much data out there' cases, but I'll make a short article about it.
I would like to see a article about rep ranges ,like which rep ranges for beginner,intermedieate and advaced .Like a add on for your muscle specific hyperthrophy which says medium to high reps but doesn't say exact.y how much that is.and also in the article you can discuss volume needed to trigger growth for these muscles,how many sets needed
All of that's going to be covered in the article series/ebook I mentioned to Al.
I'd love to see an overview of training – days per week/bodypart stuff. (I remember you saying on TNation something about not training on consecutive days for recovery.)
Such an article is in the making and it certainly won’t be a mini-article.
Ha ha. Didn't think it would be short!!
Pleased to hear that, though. great news.
When will this new article hit TN or your site?
One suggestion — I think this site could use better organization. Maybe just using a simple blog format might be better than having all these different pages for articles, comments, etc. It's going to get much uglier if you leave it this way…
It's pending review at TNation.
I think you're right that I should change the site's format. I'm absolute crap with CSS/HTML though, so it might take a while.
Coach Menno a article on long head of the triceps would be great aswell as well as delts
Also upper chest since i remember you said it
s tricky on tnation
Got it. I'll do some posts with pictures/videos for exercises and specific body parts. (I happen to know Christmas will bring me a videocamera.)
Thank you, that would be great especially if you put the main focus on the tricky parts of the muscle groups like upper chest,lateral head of the shoulder,long head of the triceps
Hi Coach Menno i have another suggestion ,an article on how to train for aesthetics/adonis/looking attractive. Since most people workout with that in mind only a small minority wants to become a bodybuilder.
Good suggestion. I will address that.
The Article could focus on the 3 most important body parts to achieve that goal,shoulders,lats and arms
I posted a request on your muscular potential article before I got to this article. In short, would you write some stuff for us elderly dudes?
An article abotu training frequency?
Hey, have you looked into what the literature says on repping to failure? Whether it has been shown to provide better gains or not.
The literature on training to failure is very controversial. Training to failure induces extreme fatigue even compared to training just shy of failure. If that fatigue can be managed in a program, failure training can be very beneficial. However, due to the inherent decrement in exercise technique and practical problems, such as safety, I generally do not recommend training to complete failure. I only use it in some programs for advanced individuals.
Thanks for your response, I really appreciate it.
No problem, feel free to ask anything you want!
Hi Menno, love your website, especially the nutrition articles. I’d love to see an article based on how many grams of fat a bodybuilder should consume when both cutting and bulking. It seems there are two schools of thought on fats. You have guys like Dave Palumbo and John Meadows recommending high fats both for cutting and bulking. Then there is the old school “bro science” guys recommending low fats and higher carbs(most likely androgen users). I think a Bayesian article on fats could clear up a lot of confusion in the fitness community. I’ve already applied your protein advice and have not only saved a ton of money on meats and powders but have gotten leaner since dropping my protein intake. I’d love to know if I’m consuming too many fats; even if they are healthy fats! Thanks and keep up the great work!
I definitely have a strong take on this subject. I favor relatively high fat intake even when cutting. Fats are an essential macronutrient like protein that cannot be skimped on. Androgen users indeed need less fat because they don’t need fat to synthesize the hormones they’re supplementing. I cover this topic extensively in my seminars, so a definitive write-up is underway.
Cool, I will be looking forward to the article!
Don’t know if this is still the place for posting suggestions, but here goes. I would very much like to see an article about which routine is best for hypertrophy when things like training experience and diet are considered.
