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...

Super Slow Zone: Scam, Fad, or legit

I'm not advocating this company but I wanted to see what you guys think of it. I was at a dog rescue event and this company had a booth there. I respectfully listened to their pitch, but I'm sorry this does not make sense and it could not possible work as they claim. I asked if someone gain...

Ditched the curl

Yesterday, during my first session in my further improved routine I decided to ditch the barbell curl. After doing seated cable rows and lat pull downs right after each other and both with isometric holds, my biceps felt blasted and I no longer felt the need to do bicep curls. No need to...

First Bulk - Three Months - 157 to 173 - Looking For Advice

Hey there. So, I started this year at around 172 pounds - first picture. I was able to cut down to 157.4 in about two and a half months before deciding that it was time to put on some mass and actually get somewhere with my lifting. That was on April 9, 2014 - second picture. About three months...

Little Worried About The Wife's Intake Levels

Hey crew. So some of you may have caught that my wife has been working out too. She's actually been going a lot longer than me. She's doing great. So she is eating at a deficit currently and I helped her go through Emma-Leigh's calculations to figure maintenance. My only concern is that she's...

Role of sleep in recovery/gains

I realize this is a highly variable thing dependent on the individual, so I am just asking for others' individual experiences. How much does sleep (or lack thereof) play into making gains or in recovery? Reason I ask is that I am trying to evaluate whether re-arranging my life to allow more sleep...

Burnout - I have burnout on the first week of my intermediate programme

Been training for 8 months. Tried lifting 72.5kg bench today and had a hard time, 5,4,3. I had a heavy leg day yesterday and I just felt so tierd today. I have been eating enough, that is for sure. It's just that this programme might be too much, what is your opinion? Basically it's training 6 days...

DB bench with heavy weights?

I tore a rotator cuff 9 months ago doing benchpress. Was going for a new 1RM at 100 kgs (up from 95.) I was also doing sets of 4 - 6 reps at 75 - 80 kg. Now I only do DB press. They work fine for me at this stage. Much easier on my shoulder which is about 90% good now (it might never be better than...

So I decided to go to an all compund system which I'm enjoying. I've been noticing my bis look like a 15 year old girl and the BOR's are not doing much. So I dutifully researched the forums and found low=bis, up=back, I can do an underhand grip,etc. So last night I picked up the weight (I...

Who has experienced muscle gain--size and strength--at over age 65?

What advice would you give to your younger self?

I was watching the movie "Looper" the other day and putting aside the ridiculous scifi aspects of it, I was struck by the part where Bruce Willis talks to his younger self and basically schools him on what a selfish immature sh*t he is. The movie does a good job of portraying just how profoundly...

Anyone over 40 here run everyday?

I run on the treadmill for one mile everyday even on lift days. One mile isn't a lot, it's only about 11 minutes on running speed. Twice a week, I would do 2 miles. I do this for cardio fitness. I do worry sometimes because my weight has been dropping because of this which is NOT what I'm...

For those familiar with the All Pro routine

I've been doing the All Pro routine for the last two months while cutting and it is going very well, I lose fat and apparently I am also gaining a bit of muscle.
