Is it possible to build a good amount of muscle over 40?

I turned 40 in December and I've been lifting for around 2 years although 5 months of that was cutting due to a failed dirty bulk. For an older guy my physique is ok I suppose compared to the rest of the population but my goal is / was to be big. That's my goal in life. It's what I enjoy and...

My High Bar, Safety Bar, and Front Squat

I thought about putting this in "The Squat" thread but figured Adam may get tired of me hijacking it so I decided to start a new one. In the starting strength book they talk a lot about back, hip, and knee angle during squats and how it will vary based on body type and squat version. I had...

How much do you really need a day and does age make a difference ? 1.5g per kg is what ive been doing , so 140g, based on intake spread across the day (max 20-30g) at a time - using shakes to supplement . Seems a lot though ! For you older guys who’ve worked out more wonder what your findings...

Deadlift - form check

Smile Quick question: I think I may not be working out hard enough

So I work out 5 days a week. I've extended my time to allow more work to be done and have split the routine to upper body day and lower body day (never more than 2 days of each in a week) My upper body strength is terrible and always has been. When I lift I find my biceps quit on me fast. To the...

Bulking (rubber banding?) after 57 lb cut

Hey so I used to be super active here and got pretty strong a few years back. I had a kid and stopped lifting and got real sloppy. I decided at 195 I’d had enough and went on omad I was relatively careful about protein but didn’t lift at all so I lost a ton of muscle. I ended up at 137 at my...
