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...

Thumbs down Demoralizing comment

I usually hang out in the woman's forum, and I have a log in sponsored sups, but felt I had to post this here. Yesterday I asked a trainer I know for advice. He is legit, was a pro bb, knows his stuff.. I've known him a long time and respect him. I told him I was fairly happy with my last bulk/...

3 years...would you be happy with this progress?

So I got back in the gym a little over 3 years ago after a good 10 year layoff. You can see from the earliest photos when I had been back at it for a few weeks that I hadn't totally lost it, but it wasn't much to look at. After a couple months I gained a quick "muscle memory" 10 or so...

First time doing SLDL, holy crap!

... I can barely sit down!! I decided to take a break from Stronglifts (the only routine I've worked since I started lifting in April) and focus on trimming fat instead. I've always suspected that I've been way too reliant on my quads to do the work on my squats and standard DL's, and that...

My Strategy - Should this work?

Hey everyone, My long term goal is to go from 300lbs @33%BF down to 220-230@ 10%BF or less, I am 6ft tall with large bone structure. I've seen lots of transformations on here were people get skinny and then try and bulk. I am not really interested in going that way for several reasons as such I...

I'm gaining weight ... is this to be expected

Cut back on my cardio from daily to 3 times a week (a 2 mile job in the morning). Still basically eating the same thing daily. I'm 8 weeks in the SL 5x5 program. I'm up 4lbs on the scale. So I've gained .5lbs/wk while lifting. Is this normal? I hate to see that scale inch up. Still no change in...

Juicing the 2013 Hollywood fad diet and not the performing enhance drug

I am aware that juicing is not by any means new. The idea of being able to squeeze out vitamins, minerals, antioxidants etc. out of fruits and vegetables has probably been around since humans started growing their own crops. I was curious after reading an article about Marky Mark and how he...

Is this enough lifting?

So, I just turned 44, was lazy since my mid thirties and got up to close to 200 lbs at 5'8" over the years. Two years ago I dropped weight down to 178, mostly through diet and cardio, then added some not very effective weight training and got up to 185lbs. That is where I am currently at. My...

Realistic strategy after cut?

I've been cutting for about 8 weeks now I think and I've gone down from around 164 pounds to 155,5 pounds right now. My BF started somewhere between 19 and 20% and right now I'm almost at 14% BF. Maybe I could still lose the half pound to bottom out at 155 pounds (for 6 feet tall still). I...
