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...

Back after a 10 year break.

So I lifted a lot from late teens to late 30's w/some breaks from burn out and injury but never any extremely long breaks until I hit 39. I got injured and life was hectic and next thing I knew a decade had passed w/out a trip to the gym. I have been back now for about 5 or 6 months and other...

Any drawbacks to a vasectomy?

I've been thinking seriously about getting a vasectomy. From what I...

Just a little history first. I'm 56 and was a regular lifter since my early 40's. When I was 47, I did a 315 pound bench press, which was a goal of mine. I enjoy lifting for strength, and it's what really motivates me. For the last 3 years, I hardly worked out at all. Reason: I was in a...

dumb question about York bars at gym

So at the gym there are two kinds of bars, some with a bit of knurling in the center and the others just on the side. To me, the ones without center knurling seem lighter. How can you tell the weight of a bar? Is it marked somewhere? I asked a guy today if they were lighter and he said no, but I...

One more set before leaving.

Often, right before leaving, even the days when I've raised the max weight on the main exercise, when it's time to leave the gym I feel I can do one more set with about 60% load. It doesn't feel right to leave the gym while able to move a bit more iron with that day's muscles, but I have no idea...
