Arrow Sticky Thread Sticky: The Official Ov35 Bench Press Thread!

May as well throw this one out there so we have all 3 major lifts represented. :) Open to ideas as to how things should run but here's how I see it..... - must be Flat BB Bench only (using an OLY bar). No Incline Bench, Decline Bench or DBs. - Raw lifts only. No shirted benching. (wrist...

Sticky Thread Sticky: O35 Official Deadlift Competition Thread

Since we lost the last deadlift competition thread, it's time for a new one. Ideally we can get this stickied, and get some mod reps for the weight class winners. I'll be checking the contest regularly to update standings. Since the thread may last longer than a year, we can declare winners at...

I went overboard on quads yesterday...felt glorious! 22 Sets...Anyone ever do that?

So, I recently invested in some commercial gear for my home gym, a Maxicam hack squat and Legend Fitness 918 leg extension, to go with my usual 45 degree leg press, squats etc. Due to my busy season, it was my first real workout on legs since acquiring the gear, and I couldn't help myself. I...

What's the best method to measure body fat?

I bought a fat caliper from and the results tell me I have about 14% body fat. The online calculators (where you measure various parts of your body & enter height and weight), put me in the 18-21% range, which sounds more accurate. But that's quite a discrepancy! How do you...

Back in the saddle

Hey Everyone, I fell off the wagon so to speak about 3 years ago and have really not been working out or following any sort of nutrition plan until March of this year. Started a new job and used that as a motivator to get back to a more healthy lifestyle. It is interesting how much guilt I...

Light behing the neck overhead presses = DANGEROUS?

Got the old tsk tsk tsk doing Light behing the neck overhead presses. I also do light behind the neck cable pull downs. I go light because I'm using the Serge Nubret training technique. Is there a danger I don't know of doing this old school movement?

Can't break through plateau at 14% body fat

This is yet another "I've hit a plateau" thread, but looking for any advice from the over 40 crowd who may have similar issues maybe due to metabolism.

pull ups - regular part of workout?

When I started my transformation in December, I could barely do one pull up. after a few weeks I could get 3 (almost 4). pathetic , I know....but I was out of shape for several years. It was almost depressing because I used to be able to pound out 15-18 anyway, I pretty much gave up on them...

BenchPress with Foam Block Under Shirt?

So, I tried searching the forum and the results all seemed unrelated. I also tried google, but most of the results were blocked by the proxy at work, or old and inconclusive. I was at the gym today doing my absolutely abysmal bench presses and the guy next to me came in. Warmed up. Then...

Had my left hip scoped today, so far so good

The doc shaved off a ton of bone and had to clip back the labrum in one spot where it was too far gone to suture but he said the joint looked great otherwise and no cartilage damage. Just over 4mm joint space and so far I've not had to take anything stronger than an Advil for the pain. I asked...

Improving a weak bodypart (naturally)

Have you had success in bringing up a weak bodypart? If so, how did you do it -- simply a matter of more emphasis on it? More frequency/volume?

Gaining Muscles, losing weight

What joint supplement really makes a difference for pushing 40 crowd?

Doc said I have some wear and tear on my joints from natural aging (pushing 40). My joints are getting noisier (pops and ticks) by the day. They just pain and ache after a hard workout and can no longer take the abuse like when I was younger. Just wondering what joint supplement really makes a...
