    After reading some of the things on this thread I'm toying with the idea of doing some full body days to add some variety

    What do you guys think about alternating every other week between body part splits and full body routines? As in, one week do my usual 5 day splits, the next week do 3x week full body, then repeat

    Oddly this is what I was also thinking. But I dunno, most of the advice I've heard is to pick a workout, any workout, and dedicate yourself to a routine of it. I'd guess for at least 1 month or 6 weeks, but at most 3 months.

    So mixing it up every week would contradict that I feel. I guess the other way of looking at it is that it's a fortnightly routine heh.

    To me, going off my bro science, it seems like full body is more for burning calories and cutting fat, splits are for bulking.

    And I'm naturally a broad enough guy so it's not like I'm one of those guys trying to bulk from skinny, but bulking from decent foods is hard enough as it is without training that doesn't promote it. I was eating up to 4000 calories a day, and this is not the lifestyle I want, frankly. I dunno what to do when I return to bulking next month.

    Maybe I need to rethink the whole thing but my calorific maintenance is 2800-3000 the last handful of times I checked, so as far as I'm aware I need those kinda calories for muscle gain.

    48 hours after leg training, I am incredibly sore. I have trouble walking and sitting up. I was going to fast today but I decided to get a high salt, high protein meal for dinner.

    Is it true minoxidil and/or anti DHT gives a second shed?
    I'm at 9 months...all little 1 inch to 2 inch hairs though not too many long hairs. When i had initial dread shed it was all kind of hair for 2 weeks during first month.

    sheds are unpredictable, there's no evidence about second sheds but its certainly plausible. didn't you just start topical finasteride?

    Been on topical spironolactone and minoxidil since November.

    I do front squats more often than back squats. It's better for isolating the vastus lateralis. Massive vastus lateralis = massive, powerful looking thighs

    My back squat still managed to improve too

    What is everyone’s view on taking steroids while avoiding hairloss. Does anyone have experience with ones that do not cause hairloss?

    How big are you - height, weight, and approximate body fat %?

    2800-3000 is high for maintenance unless you're big. I'm 6'1"/240 pounds at ~20% body fat and my maint is around 2700-2800.

    I'm 5'10 and right now I'm 192 pounds (just weighed myself moments ago by coincidence) but for the past month I've been closer to 200.

    So not a "big" guy at all but I'm trying to remember where I kept getting this impression my maintenance is 2800 calories, I know the digital weighing scale says that but it surely wasn't my only influence as I never believed it.

    Bf % is high like 25% I'd guess right now. Luckily it doesn't show on me for some reason, but yeah I'm a fatty.

    I've had a lot of fun pigging out in the past couple months, but now I need to cut for a bit. Hopefully my willpower for fasting is not too far gone.

    You can use an online TDEE calculator like the one here: https://tdeecalculator.net/ . I get you about the weight not showing. I'm 240, but people usually put me at 210-220. When I was 310 (my heaviest), people thought I was 260-270. Seems folks always think I'm 25-40 pounds less than I actually am. I do have dense bones and a lot of natural muscle mass, however. You must have a pretty slender/lean natural frame and carrying weight if you're at 25% BF at 192 - that would mean that your ideal weight at ~10% BF would be around ~160, which is pretty light for a 5'10" guy.
