Q: I would like to start your GVT in a few weeks. Should I take some time off after a high-intensity cycle before I begin it? And what should I do during that period? Is it enough to train one body part once a week in the Ten Sets Method? When should I increase weights?

A:

Q: You recommended somewhere or another (damn, I don't have my CP archives in order) that one-and-a-quarter squats will hit the VM specifically. Is this movement "butt-to-calves to parallel and back, then stand," or is it "half-way up from parallel and back?"

A:

The "half-way up from parallel and back" will only contribute to further destabilizing the knee.

Q: Please answer this ASAP. I am starting week 4 of the arm workout maximal weights and I have two questions. When doing the Scott bb curls, should the wrists be neutral or backward? Secondly, what exactly are rack lockouts?

A:

Q: I am curious. If you could train Monday through Friday, but not on the weekends at all, how would you do it? I work 12 to 16 hours every weekend, but I have Monday through Friday off. I am in the medical profession, and there would be a large demand for this type of workout split.

Q: This morning, I did your chest and back workout described by TC in a previous issue of Testosterone. After I finished (and was moaning in the corner, sucking on my post-workout drink), I was approached by one of the trainers at the gym. He said, "Sure you're gonna' be sore after that workout, but that's an aesthetics workout, not a strength workout. You'll get great separation working out like that but you'll also get arthritis when you're 60." He went on and on, mumbling about connective tissue and other such things. I really couldn't pay attention; I was just concentrating on getting my protein/carb drink to my lips. Do you know what he was going on about?

A:

Q: When is the best time to have a post-workout meal? I know it's a good idea to consume protein right after a workout, but many say that it's better to wait about an hour after a workout to have a regular meal. Who's right?

A:
