6 year progress pics (realistic expectations)

Lots of questions of the forums about “progress” (or lack of it) lately, so I decided to share mine since starting lifting again at age 42. I made a nice collage of pics that show a slow steady progress from 143 pounds to 163 pounds over a 6 year time frame, most of it gained in the first year...

Distal biceps partial tear - surgery this weekend, wish me luck!

To be fair I think I'd been pushing my luck a bit too much and it caught up with me - I partially tore my bicep tendon doing overly heavy goblet squats of all the stupid ways to do it. My grip slipped on the last rep and the weight torqued my elbow in a bad way and pop My chiro checked me out...

Where are all the weight plates?

I've been trying to add some more 45 pound plates to my home gym so I don't have to spend so much time loading and unloading the squat bar, leg press, and calf raise machine.

Anyone that doesn't use supplements or powders?

Just curious has anybody on here had good results without any products at all. I don't plan on using any supplements or protein powders. So far I've been able to get 160g of protein with just meat and eggs.

Muscle bellies changing shape as you age

Hi all. Apologies if this is in the wrong section (I am only 30). My question is do muscles change shape as you get older? When I was a young bodybuilder I was known for long bicep bellies, with high peaks. When I held my left arm at the 90 degree angle and flexed the wrist, it looked like the...

1500 deficit, is it safe?

Been keeping track of my calories and I feel after eating about 2000-2200 calories for the day I don't feel hungry and my meals even feel big enough for me to not mentally see it as a diet. My TDEE says it's 3541. It seems about right. How important is it to go about 500-1000 deficit? Is this...

Been playing with reverse grip benching
