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...

what sort of weight should you start with?

So... I have lost a decent amount of weight and still have a lot to lose, and think I have got as far as I will just by eating sensibly on its own. I've joined up to a gym, but I've never really lifted weights before. I've used the resistance machines in a gym previously and know how they...

Becoming a gym rat

HI, How do people get into body building where they become committed and serious about sculpting their body? I am overweight by about 35 pounds but have slowly been losing weight through quitting drinking. I go to the gym a few times a week and lift weights which I have been doing for about a...

I be squatting bout tree-fiddy (vid)

It's a pretty nice milestone to make, so gonna brag a bit :D. Squat has been my best lift ever since I began the road to PLing but was struck by the fact that I was one who "couldn't squat" at first. You know the story - could in no way make depth unless I was on my toes, holding onto something....

elbow damage, how to recover??

I believe I have overworked my left arm; my elbow has been in pain for five days. I believe I over-did it with preacher dumbbell curls. Initially, I noticed a pain at the bottom of my elbow while I was doing the curls. I should have stopped... I have been using heat wraps; the pain has left for...

I am 40. Therefore I have to stop doing squats. WTF????

So I came across a couple of articles online that suggests that when a person turns 40 they should stop doing squats and various other exercises because they get progressively dangerous to do as we age. WHAT???? I started just doing squats when I was 39. Actually I became more serious about doing...

How many calories per day do you burn?

Does anyone keep track of this? With a fitness tracker or by calculating manually? I am around 3500 - 4000 on work days and with a session at the gym and as low as 2000 on a lazy Sunday.

Ever pack up and leave after deadlifts?

Today, I did deads and decided to just leave when I was done. Usually I do 3-4 other exercises afterwards. But today I was beat and knew I couldn't really put much effort into the rest. I wish I could do like the Arnold did, and just leave, take a nap and come back later, but that wasn't an...

Question about rest periods.

So I have been doing 3 months on and one session off per rotation. Just so I don't confuse anyone here, what I mean by a session is, my weekly work out rotation. Just wondering, should I be adding more rest periods or should I just base it off how I feel, because atm, I have been doing: Scheg...

I have not lost... But I AM lost.

The basics... I'm 46, 6ft, 217 pounds. I have just recently signed up for a gym. Originally I wanted to lose weight. But now I want to bulk up. Not "Arnold" bulk up... but enough to have my muscle definition easily seen when I'm out and about. Basically, enough for people to notice. I can't seem to...

Any drawbacks to a vasectomy?

She's talked to her doc about getting her tubes tied and some other permanent measures, but they frankly all sound pretty invasive with the chance of complications.
