Sticky Thread Sticky: American Ninja Warrior

Got cleared for "social media" by American Ninja Warrior. I'm competing in the (once secret) Military Episode in June (in California). I'm going to kick arse and try to win the 1 million dollar prize money for Shriners Hospital. I'm also raising money for them (not for me) so no matter...

Thumbs up Sticky Thread Sticky: This week in the O35 II

On this day BLK00TJ is competing at the 2015 Mid-Atlantic State Championships and Military Nationals. I've competed alongside this lifter and his squat is nothing short of elite. Yesterday I had a few surprise PR's in the gym (sorry no pics or vids) Barbell Bench 265 x 6, Dumbells 110's x 9,...

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...

Voodoo floss

I picked up a couple rolls this week. For the old pros in here that have been using this do you have any tips for use. I am wrapping knees, elbow, etc. I have watched tutorials on it on YouTube, and rogue. I know how to wrap. I guess the thing I am confused on is how long do you leave...

Craigslist is my friend! (warning: pointless exuberance ahead) I've been using Olympic adjustable dumbbells since I built my home gym. I don't use dumbbells for a lot of work, but still, changing the weights was a bit annoying, and the length of the bars made exercises awkward on many...

something to strengthen muscles/tendons around knees?

As I've started lifting the last 4 weeks I've been noticing my right knee getting more and more sore. I've had problems with it off and on over the years just from various "accidents" with it since my teens, so I think this is just old injuries/scar tissue coming back to bite me. I've been...

Healing a consistent injury

I keep tearing a muscle in left lower back/glute area when doing deadlifts heavy or lighter in high reps. My Dr and Good Friend who is a Physical Therapist say im getting a little too old to be deadlifting 375 4 or 5 times. It is one of my favorite exericises but I gotta admit its a terrible 4 or 5...

Realistic expectations.

ive been thinking lately... Being 35, and admittedly my body just isn't what it used to be at 20, I just wonder what a realistic long term expectation would be. I really don't have any set goals, I'm just lifting to get stronger, I have no ceiling, don't think about it, and I never really...

Tips for forearms stronger for deadlifts

Any advice on what works best for you to strengthening forearms to help with deadlifts. I'm on stronglifts 5x5 program. Forearms give out when I get up to 250 lbs. It prevents me from going higher than 250 without very long pauses when setting the weight back on the floor. I can't use...

How Much Sleep Do You Get?

Lifting weights makes me TIRED. I usually fall asleep when I put my kids to bed (they're 4 and 8) I'm usually lifting 3-4 times a week, at 90% of my 1RM and just fall asleep around 8:30 or 9pm. I try to get 8 hours a night, but when I don't fall asleep with the shorties, I'll usually go to...

Not a thread you would expect from me (training lulls)

It has been over 5 years since my return to the gym. In that time, I may have missed 2 workouts (unplanned). (one when I had double pneumonia and just guessing there was probably at least one other). A lot of you know me and at times....well.... I have been told I may be a little overzealous. ...

Rear Delts

When I hit Shoulders, I work them as hard as possible - at least for me. I also work on my form, because hitting each head demands it or you are wasting your time. For the past several months, I really pounded my rear delts. Face Pulls or ok, but I really do not get that much out of them. In...

Can someone suggest a good protein powder that's high in protein without being crazy-high in calories? Also something that's not too terribly expensive, and preferably tastes good, too.

Wink OHP for bench press gains?

I've found that training my shoulders using the standing OHP really helped me spring my bench press forward. Obviously, benching and proper programming/nutrition will help you bench more, but don't underestimate what the OHP can do to help you bust through a plateau. I think it's smart to hit your...
