  1. It always makes me cringe when people tell me they go to the gym for 7 hours each day without any proper rest or getting used to the strain first.
    Have you ever tried one of the alarm clocks that track sleep cycles and wake you up at a good time? I've been looking into them but so far I haven't found any that were useful. I'm asking because I usually have trouble falling asleep and when I set my alarm clock for a specific time it means I won't get the amount of sleep I planned on getting.

  2. Fantastic video! This is what has worked for me: Day 1: Chest / Triceps… Day 2: Back / Biceps… Day 3: Rest
    Day 4: Shoulders
    Day 5: Legs
    Day 6: Rest
    Day 7: Rest
    I also mix up how I lift, always trying new ways to hit the muscle and keeping the body confused. I'll also break it up sometimes and and pick 1 day and do supersets or dropsets on 1 muscle group. Don't let your body get used to what you're doing. Excellent info here about rest, that is so important. All of his videos have spot on information, well done.

  3. Thank you so much for explaining this in incredible detail! I had no clue how to schedule work outs and was just doing whatever I felt like whenever. This is why we need exercise science….
