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...

I went overboard on quads yesterday...felt glorious! 22 Sets...Anyone ever do that?

So, I recently invested in some commercial gear for my home gym, a Maxicam hack squat and Legend Fitness 918 leg extension, to go with my usual 45 degree leg press, squats etc. Due to my busy season, it was my first real workout on legs since acquiring the gear, and I couldn't help myself. I...

Advice for a Vet just starting out?

Hello. Hoping a few of you experienced folks wouldn't mind helping me out. My situation is as follows. Been out of Army about 2 years now. I've kept up with PT on and off but I really want to train pretty much exclusively to build muscle now. All my experience through the military has been in...

Legs After Vacation...

After a week off for vacation, I utterly wrecked my legs the other day. It was only about 10 days between leg workouts, but I can't remember the last time my legs were so sore. My lower body workouts always leave me gingerly limping around the next day or two, but my quads have been KILLING me. I...

Injury Indentification--Experts Please Help

I started lifting weights again recently and pulled a muscle in my rear deltoid or at the top of my tricep. It's almost the valley in between the two muscles. I can't figure out what it is and it isn't healing well. It occurred after I added more weight on the bench press and incline bench press. I...

Failed my first 5x5 set at week 10

So yesterday was my 3rd workout of week 10 (30th overall after doing pretty much nothing for the last 10 or so year). I was not able to pull 235 on my deadlift. My form has not been good lately so I was really trying to have good form. I pulled it twice and that was it. I am going to drop way...

Joint Pain

Well I guess Father Time is catching up to me. I've already had surgery on both knees ACL replacement in one and a meniscus repair in the other. Believe it or not my knees aren't the issue.

CGBP using ez curl bar

anyone done them with the ez curl bar with a good amount of weight? i prefer them with ez curl bar but it's hard to load decent weight unless you have a spotter. i also like CBBP with ez curl bar on the decline bench.

Question Is it all in my head...or not?

So, I'm 36 years old and was put on testosterone injections once a week because my Test levels were at about 220. When my wife stuck me on Sundays, I would hit the gym hard on Monday feeling strong and really rocked the weights, the bag etc. We switched to her sticking me on Fridays a month or...

I'm conflicted with whether I should have the surgery, and I figured why not ask those who have choose to have it done (or not). I tore my right ACL (partial) roughly 24 years ago, and my left one (complete) about 6 years ago. I have instability issues with my right knee, I would reinjury it...
