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...

Lost in space!

Hi all... I think I've hit a brick wall here with my workout. This is quickly resulting in lack of motivation, and tons of it! Ok, here's the deal. I'm terrified of the scale, I gain weight too quickly and my childhood as an overweight kid still haunts me. I've kept myself limited to 1500 cal...

Alternative to lying triceps extension

Hey all, Been doing lying triceps extensions since I've started training about 5 months ago. They've given me some discomfort, even when making sure my arms are bent to reduce tension on my elbows. So far I worked though that but yesterday I felt a burning sensation in my left elbow doing them....

Bodybuilders Look Gross?

Some love for the leg press

Wanted to share some love for the leg press. After years of strength centric routines I ended up with rather top heavy quads, with most of the mass up by the hips. Now that I'm doing bodybuilding style workouts (I still squat), I'm finally adding some mass around the knee. In 2 months I've added...

For those who compete in bodybuilding, I want some input.

As most of you know I have been training for a long time. Some years ago when I (in my opinion) was in the best shape, I was going to do a show. Unfortunately I was in an accident and never had the chance to compete and have not done so since. But I still think I have decent shape, good...

Joined the 1000lb club

I decided a few months ago that I wanted to try and get a 1000lb total. At that point I was around 80lb short. This morning I finally finished running Smolov and hit a 165kg (386lb) squat (a touch over 2xBW at 179lb) xt9_-c7tCQs. Which means my total hit 455kg 1001lb :D :D :D (DL 190kg...

Glucosamine - Does it really work if you're not arthritic?

My joints are still aching after a deload. So I decided to research glucosamine. However, I've read that it doesn't really work on people who do not have arthritis. Wondering if it's true and if it actually works for you. I really don't want to turn to a supplement if I don't have to.
