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...

Training and aging.

Its a given we all respond different to training as well as aging, but is it really that much of a difference? I mean we are all mammals correct? Reason why I say this is because last night I was in a group (of 5, 6 with me ) discussion, all of us around the same age by 1 year or 3 at most. The...

What exercises do you more harm than good?

For those of us here who have been lifting for many moons, we learn from trial and error what works and what doesn't. Whether is be what we eat, how we recover from training, which exercises give us results, etc., it's a constant learning process. And as we age, we sometimes find that what once...

Fasting vs Eating on a cut

Those who eat every 3 or 4 hours have higher metabolisms, which aids in fat burning during the digestion process. Those who fast have decreased insulin levels, which aids in fat burning during the fasting period. How do you reconcile these two for the most successful cut possible?
