Description

In this episode of Quah (Q & A), Sal, Adam & Justin answer Pump Head questions about building a physique using only free weights, whether to increase rep ranges or weight when no longer getting sore after workouts, skipping trigger sessions when feeling sore or tired and the benefits to switching up one’s diet.

  • #Quah question #2 – I am not feeling very sore a day or two after I go to the gym. Does that mean I am not working out hard enough? Should I increase my rep ranges or weight? (56:27 )
