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...

How old should you be to begin to lift weights.....son is 12

Hey guys, My 12 1/2 year old son has expressed interest in lifting, puberty has hit, and I think it is time. I was always told 14, but maybe 13? Feedback would be great, facts would be as well

Extremely frustrated...

So I'm 36 now. I don't feel old mentally. Unfortunately, my body has been very uncooperative. I started trying to lift weights roughly 5 years ago. My ex and I had split up, I was fairly devastated and lacked confidence. I joined a local gym, found a personal trainer and trained for about 3...

Fat loss before winter bulk

Planning to start with a PT in October for muscle growth program and I'd like to shift some fat to make a clean start. Looking at 4 week diets online, they seem to be about 1800 cals per day. But is this for average size? I'm 230 lbs. 1800 seems very little :) Cheers for any advice.

Beginner wanting mass

I'am new to weightlifting training in general, I have just started membership at Planet fitness. I have started using the machines working biceps, abs, chest ,shoulders and back. These are the major areas I focus on, should I move over the weights where I may see a gain, or stick to machines.

Angry That was seriously depressing

I started this all in the beginning of January. I was 6'3" tall, 40 years old and 315lbs. At the end of June, I was still 6'3" tall, still 40 years old, and now 255lbs. I felt pretty good about the change. People had noticed, I had had to buy some new shorts and belts and t-shirts I didn't swim in....

overheating during sleep?

To start, I'm only 35 not over 35 :) But for the last few years I have found I am always steaming while asleep. It's even worse now that I am concentrating on losing fat and building a good base. Almost nightly routine: Go to bed in boxers and no shirt with window open (about 60º outside...

Ab Regimen for Dummy

Still trying to achieve the chiseled six pack. I dropped weight clear to 185 and got a pathetic four but started losing strength in lifts beyond that.

inspiration for 45y.o. 180cm

Hi, I'm trying to set my goals ... realistically, and I'm looking for inspiration. Have you seen any pictures of athletic bodies for someone who is average sized (like me) that is, about 180cm (6ft), 75kg (165lbs). I'm not looking for super athletes or huge muscles, just some inspiration :-)
