Welcome to another AMA and this one focuses on strength training with a view to learning how to use resistance training, calisthenics and isometric exercises to get better results or, at least get the results you want a little faster. As usual there are some rules to keep in mind keep all questions on topic as much as possible (and I know this sounds easy it really ain't when we all get talking about fitness). If in doubt about a question being on topic ask it anyway. There are no stupid questions: we expand our knowledge by asking and there is so much new stuff coming out on exercise that much of the 'wisdom'of the past no longer applies. Feel free to ask any follow-up questions from the answers I place here. In past AMAs a lot of value has come from that follow-up and it has often allowed me to explore avenues of knowledge and exercise science that otherwise I might not have.
As usual I will acknowledge a question by 'Liking it' and answer it, usually, within 24 hours of it having been asked. If I haven't acknowledged your question I haven't seen it so if I am forging ahead and it is not being answered please draw it to my attention by tagging me.
I will try to be as detailed and expansive in my answers as possible and I will supply links to relevant studies to back up what I say so that you all get to better understand where the science stands these days. I will keep this thread open until 26th October to give everyone the time necessary to internalize what is being said and come back with their own questions or further questions.
Looking forward to all your questions. (Kinda ).
