Arrow Sticky Thread Sticky: The Official Ov35 Bench Press Thread!

May as well throw this one out there so we have all 3 major lifts represented. :) Open to ideas as to how things should run but here's how I see it..... - must be Flat BB Bench only (using an OLY bar). No Incline Bench, Decline Bench or DBs. - Raw lifts only. No shirted benching. (wrist...

Disappointing past 8 weeks. Newbie gains done?

I'm just six months in. I saw big changes between 0-8 weeks and 8-16 weeks. But now at week 24 I doesn't look I changed at all except for getting fatter. I knew things would eventually slow down but wasn't expecting it yet. And I finally switched from a cut to a bulk so thought I'd see more...

Sudden loss in bench strength

I have recently lost significant strength on bench. I visited a orthopedic surgeon and he couldnt conclude on what the issue was. However he said it was not worth my money to get an MRI because he thought rest and physical therapy will end up being the solution. Here is the decrease in the...

Can 5Kg dumbbells increase muscle size?

First my apologies for the newbie question. Can a pair of 5Kg dumbbells be used to increase muscle size in someone that didn't weightlift before and has very limited muscular mass and a slim build? Mostly taking about arms and maybe a bit of shoulders. Thanks in advance for your help.

Success with full body workouts?

I've been a split person forever. After listening to an interview from the great Leroy Colbert who always did a full body workout and claimed to be drug free, it has sparked my interest to change to a full body. It would be strictly compound movements (I'm a huge fan of old school training) and 1...

Being "Skinny Shamed" at 40? - MINDLESS RANT

I'll preface this by saying that most of the "skinny shamers" didn't know the smaller me, but I'm wondering if folks are just hating on me. I have lost about 20 pounds in the last couple of months. I had a rude awakening when my doctor informed me that I was pre-diabetic with NO family history....

Squatting Programs...questions

Results are elusive

35-year-old amateur here. I've spent time in gyms over the years trying to build some bulk and definition, but have never seen the desired results. I started lifting again back in March: 3 - 4 times per week (every other day) for about 1 - 2 hours at a time. I haven't been following any real...

Should I be doing more lifts?

So, I'm back in the gym and two weeks in. I'm doing a routine posted by one of the members here, and I'll paste it below. My question is, after I'm done, I feel like I still have gas in the tank and I can do more. I know I don't want to overdo it. With that being said I'm keeping the weight down...

Thumbs up Should i be doing different types of abs workout?

I notice that some people's abs, despite being thin, don't really show very well and sort of look like a one pack. How can I avoid this. At the moment I am doing sit ups with weight on my chest. Should I be doing different excersises?
