What types of sets/reps was David Laid doing to start out and to gain size so quickly?
When David first sought out to train in the very beginning, he of course had no clue what he was doing. What he did was he just had moderate volume workouts in the 20 rep range. From working out over time, he has learned that the only thing that matters in the total volume you get in at the end of your workout. So, David is essentially saying that you could just do low reps with heavier weights or high reps with lighter weights, as long as the total volume is a good amount.

David Laid’ advice on how to maximize in a surplus:
David says that the one big thing that could be influencing it is not getting enough sleep. If that happens, your body won’t be able to recover, you won’t feel as good and your appetite is not going to be as good. So according to David, the key to being able to maximize is getting enough sleep.
Does David Laid still get sore after his workouts? Should your body still be getting consistently sore after working out?
David suggests that once you stop getting sore at the gym, it means that your body has adapted to it. On the other hand, if you stay consistently sore when training, it is not a good sign and it means your body is not adapting. You could be using too much volume or not giving your body the time to recover. Once you get used to doing a certain workout, your body will adapt and not be sore anymore, according for David’s past experiences.
What is one piece of advice that David Laid would give himself if he could go back in time?
Although david would have a lot to say, if he had to pick just one thing to say, he would say something along the lines of “Don’t listen to anything anybody tells you.” Back then, David had the mindset of that if you received advice from somebody in amazing shape, they’re correct, but if you received advice from someone who’s very small, they’re wrong. Since David believes that this is a very bad mentality to have, he would tell his past self to just simply not listen to them. So before taking advice you should base it off the evidence behind it and just think for yourself.
