I'll be 48 in January so age is definitely something I have to compensate for in my training. I've struggled with shoulder pain, so I took a break to work rotator cuff and rear delts a bit based on info I researched online.

I recently started back up on the 5 day plan (I took the short break after week 8 of the 3 day full body plan when my weight and reps started to decline). Shoulder feels

I will be hiking in the Andes so I've been working my legs harder than usual in preparation. Last week I took a practice hike and emerged with no leg soreness with one exception - the areas running up and down alongside the shins. Is there even muscle there? Anyway, I was wondering if anyone had suggestions for training that part of the body. Thanks!

Hi Mark,

I'm considering your Chest Blast workout but am curious how I would add that into my current 10-week cycle. Is this something that can be included or is this something I would do between cycles?

Is the same true for the arms blast?

Hi All,

Just wondering the same old question, and the internet doesn't give much away, do I thought I place it here to see if anyone has worked this one out

I am cutting with the TSPA diet, and working hard with the THT plan since years. Great muscle gains and loving it: BUT, now that I am cutting and trying to get down to the <12% body fat, i am wondering how much the scale really me

First 2 THT Cycles: 8-12 Rep Range - 3 Day - Whole Body

3rd THT Cycle: 6-8 Rep Range - 3 Day - M/W/F Splits

4th THT Cycle (current): 6-8 Rep Range - 3 Day - M/W/F Splits

Overall, I've noticed slight size changes (arms, chest & legs) but not as much as I would have thought after almost 40 weeks. My strength appears static, per my logs, but I am focusing much more on form and negati

Hi Mark.
You recommend going to a 5 day (8-12 rep range) cycle after completing 10 weeks of a 3 day (8-12 rep range) cycle. With the crazy work and family schedule I have, the 3 day cycle was ideal as far as time goes. Would it be detrimental for me to go right back into a 3 day cycle? And, if I do, should I stick to a 8-12 rep range or change over to a 6-8 rep range? Thanks in advance.

I'm wrapping up my first phase of THT (3-day at 8-12 reps), and I'm prepping for the 5-day split.

I only have free weights in my home gym, so wondering what I can do in place of leg press and leg extensions on leg day.

The exercise bank says squats and leg-presses are interchangeable. So, can I just do 4 sets of squats, instead of 2 squats and 2 leg presses? I realize you can't really t
