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...

Going out to clubs & handling agression

How do you older chaps handle going out to places that are primarily under 30s & you get the inevitable pissing competitions where they are all trying to assert their dominance? You might be on the dance floor & not have moved and all of a sudden some muppet consistently bumps into you just to...

What is the point of doing side bends?

Every time I go to the gym I see 10 people doing side bends. Last time I went to do some back extensions I could not get one of the devices due to 2 guys doing side bends on them. There are always multiple people doing standing side bends with 45 pound plates. I though deadlifting and squatting...

Knees hurt when doing squats.

I've been trying to do squats when I do my once a week old school lifting routine. I don't use much weight, maybe 135lbs, sometimes as little as 115lbs. With this weight, I am not concerned about destroying my spine, but I am now feeling protective of knees, which are so very fragile at our age....
