That “7 years got me this” picture is me and every non-pro-athlete friend I’ve had (down to the workouts/reps/sets); so the following rep/volume advice was magical for me. Coupled with your cited sources/studies…it was motivational to read a non-bro-science article with the personal pics included; I’m looking forward now to never having an “off” period again.
