It feels natural enough, but I'm not sure which is better - an inch or two below parallel, or quite a few inches below that...

Guess it doesn't matter, as you say, if it's not getting in the way.


edit: I'll try both, and if "ATG" reduces the weight or reps I can do (relative to just below parallel), or makes me more sore/tired/whatever, then I'll start deliberately stopping short of that.
Take a video. Many times going deeper you will experience some lower back rounding. This might result in strains and pains.

I've often wondered how much richer it would taste if they used Whole Milk instead of Low Fat.

Referencing my video?

If you want to drink regular milk, just add protein powder. My recipe is a healthier substitute for someone who likes chocolate milk but doesn't want the added sugar. And it tastes better than chocolate milk. And it has no lactose. And heavy cream is rich in nutrition.

You can really do whatever you want. This is simply an option. Plus it's better for kids.

My wife: "This is 10x better than milk and protein powder."

I've heard fiber helps you lose weight by absorbing fat, however it also absorbs other nutrients, wich includes protein. Is this true? or bs?

I just want to say I love your videos and I hope you keep at it! They have helped me a lot in the learning process. Anyway my question: I saw your video on fullbody vs splits the other day. Everywhere I look fullbody is three times a week. If its good to keep up protein syntheses why not cycle with 4 times a week to get that extra boost? For example:

WEEK#1 (4 workouts)
Monday = fullbody
Tuesday = off
Wednesday = fullbody
Thursday = off
Friday = fullbody
Saturday = off
Sunday = fullbody

WEEK#2 (3 workouts)
Monday = off
Tuesday = fullbody
Wednesday = off
Thursday = fullbody
Friday = off
Saturday = fullbody
Sunday = off

I know you would have to split up the sets and all to keep the volume around the same. So basically my question is simple, fullbody workouts, why three times a week and not a four/three cycle?

Thanks for the advice

From my understanding in high doses it can block some cholesterol absorption (you don't want this) and absorbs some fat. There are no existing studies to show that this trace amount of fat absorption when consuming large amounts of fiber had any impact on weight loss.

Absorbing trace fatty acids is not the same as melting body fat. Fatty acids are a fuel source and used to make ATP.

Because it provides no additional benefit. Most of the studies and research indicates that protein synthesis returns to baseline after 48 hours. Some research shows it is as high as 72 hours. Obviously there are variables here at play that we do not fully understand yet, but with the existing research it would indicate that training fullbody every other day is about the max you want to train with regards to muscle building.

Beyond that you receive no real benefit, but might add additional risks because you are not allow the system to recover. The body is more than just muscle. You also have tendons, CNS, joints, etc. Giving them a day to recover in between fullbody workouts is a wise thing to do, especially if you are in this for the long haul.
