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...

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...

Failing required reps on 531?

What do I do if I don't make the required reps on 531? On week 1 of my second cycle I only just made the required 5 reps (with good form) for the military press at 110 lbs. No way I could do more than 5 without cheating. If I had only made 3 or 4 reps then what would be the correct way to fix...

Brace/Compression sleeves question...

Getting back into strength training, but years of military, extreme mountain climbing, etc has played a toll on my joints. So my question is pretty simple. Those of you that need to wear knee support/braces, elbow (the same), how to keep them from sticking on your arms/knees. I have a nice...

Advice about a home gym

I'm posting this in the "Over 35" forum, which for me, should be "Double 35!" Yes, I'm 73 and I've been doing yoga, walking and a kind of slapdash working out for some years now. I'd like to focus more on the workout part -- I really don't want to be one of those "bird-like" old ladies who look...

Starting again with a home gym.

3 years ago I got married and we moved to the city. Our lives are pretty busy and we decided that for the cost of gym membership we could buy some gear for home. It's not quite the same as training at a gym but anyway we're making progress. A workmate gave me 140kg of weights today and I managed to...

Red face Weight lifting and tennis

Have any of you tried to combine the two? I am kind of struggling. I play tennis pretty often, 4-5 times a week and lift occasionally. However, I LOVE lifting, enjoy watching what I eat and, in general, like to lead weight lifting/body building life style. I'd like to get more into lifting and...

Am I Overtraining?

Without going into a huge long history of my working out (40 years) and eating, in the past 9 months I have become OCD on my physique. I really like the Physique look not bodybuilder, so with that being said, I have strength trained 6 days a week for years, along with 6 one-hour cardios. I...

Question for the guys 50+

So now that I'm past that 35 midway hump to 40 I've been thinking of when the body naturally declines in performance. I'm not there, but unlike my 20s, I actually think about this stuff now. I'm also talking natural guys trying to stay at a decently high level of strength. And what did...

Question about slow reps

I've read recently that using lighter weight with slower reps is a good variation to try when things are plateauing. So I tried it last week with all my compound exercises. I did one exercise per day, using 4 sets each of 12, 10, 8 and 6 reps, and I took 1 minute rests, with 2 minutes just before...

Talking I need objective opinions (but don't yell at me, I'm fragile)

OK I'm fat. There, I said it. 200 lbs; 23% body fat measured using a couple of different methods, all pretty bang on; waist 40" neck 17, biceps 16, chest 46, thigh 24. My avi is old, and I should probably change or remove it. I kind of let myself go since then. My goal by June is 170-175;...

What diet and how much training to go from 190lbs and some fat to 200lbs on the lean side? I've been in decent shape in the past. The last time I was in the gym on the regular was in 2000. I used mostly supplements and meal replacements. I don't want to do that again. I'm trying to get...

You, Your CNS, and You

For the record, lifting weights doesn't do anything regarding your CNS. Your CNS is your brain and spinal cord. Just puttin' that out there.
