    Left shoulder has been making clicking/cracking noise lately... more so than the right shoulder. Sometimes it happens when I just raise my shoulder at a certain angle, but I also notice it during shoulder stretches, like shoulder dislocations, and also during some isolation exercises. Not painful, but kind of annoying. The day before when doing light db rows my right shoulder was fine, but left shoulder kept making clicking noises even with a light weight dumbbell. Could it be that my left side is just naturally weaker than my right? Maybe I need to do more shoulders stretches? I recently picked up a resistance band but haven't used it yet.
    Usually if your right handed, your right side will be stronger re connective tissues due to the fact that they are utilized more often. You need to do some internal and external rotations prior to any shoulder or chest work.
    How's your deadlifting program going??

    Yes I do! I picked up a resistance band and used it last night before chest workout. I could tell it helped quite a bit. I don't know if I told you yet, but I was aiming for a 200lb deadlift and hit that a few months back. Felt good, man.

    Thanks Lukester! Goal is to cut down for the summer (everyone's goal lol) and work on building my squat up. I'm only doing squats once a week right now. May bump that up to 2x week. Heavy squat day with lighter lunges and light squat day with lunges. Also read up on here about pause squats (3-5 second holds). Those looks interesting too! What do ya think?

    I've added walking in the mornings for approximately 40-45 min mainly for heart health, and not so much weight loss. In fact I don't count it as a work out. I know you are a big proponent for HIIT and listening to his cardio podcast makes me want to do more sprints. His school of thought on how LISS + decreased calories can lower metabolic rate was very eye-opening. Whoa! The irony of it all was that I was listening to this during my morning walk. lol.

    Very interesting as always, Huggy!!

    Lol yeah that's a continuous battle, the battle for leanness. Pauses are great, they take out the stretch shortening cycle part of a squat which overall puts more strain on the muscle. What's your approach for getting cut??

    Well I'm not running anything at the moment, just multi, fish oil, and whey on occasion. After trying Trutein + Protean I don't think I can ever look at other whey protein powders the same lol. I've got some mediocre whey that's been collecting dust. Also, I plan on adding in more sprint work and having more self-discipline when it comes to diet. Keeping everything in moderation, like a refeed meal. Those can turn into cheat days and even cheat weekends! I definitely want to be leaner for the summer and you guys def keep me motivated to do so!

    ETA: This is the article I was referring to.

    Looking for some advice guys...

    I'm wondering how I should split my workout routine since adding in shoulders. I also plan to hit squats and back 2x week, one back day for heavy lifts and the other reserved for lighter work. I'm experimenting with pause squats so those will be kept lighter anyway. Definitely want to keep Sun - Wed the same, but not sure how the rest of the week should be set up. HIIT the day after RDL also might not be the best idea...

    SUN - rest
    MON - squats/front squats/bb lunges/lunge variations
    TUE - heavy back/lots and lots of rows
    WED - light squats/hiit
    THUR - cardio/chest
    FRI - deadlifts/rd's/light barbell rows
    SAT - shoulders/hiit

    Just a thought here, and its not always possible but you might want to avoid doing Heavy Legs then heavy back on b2b days... Give the CNS a break.

    Killer workout across the board. Felt like I could go on forever, but my grip strength held me back. Need to work on that. On a different note, my shoulders are hurting pretty bad after my chest work out yesterday. Warmed up with my shoulders with plenty of resistance band internal/external rotations. Could have been due to my form. It's definitely not DOMS, but an achy/tender feeling near the front delt area, and I keep having to hold my shoulder and massage it. Rubbed some ICY hot on there so hopefully that helps.

    You could try a push, pull, legs routine. Incorporate a heavy day for each and a light day of each. That would hit all your muscle groups twice in a six day period. Do cardio on your light days and have Sunday off. Something like

    Monday Heavy legs
    Tuesday light push day and cardio
    Wednesday heavy pull day
    Thursday light legs and cardio
    Friday heavy push day
    Saturday light pull day and cardio
