Trying to get my life back

I'm just gonna throw this out there, I learned about this site through watching a video of a guy that was bigger than I am(which was hard to believe). But I'm a huge guy, I stand 6'3" and right now I'm down to about 584lbs. At my heaviest I was around 620lbs but have been working on getting that...

Why not compete in Powerlifting if you’re are Over 35

I haven’t posted in a long time so excuse the long post, this has been on my mind for a while. I’m not the type of guy who tries to convince everyone to do what I do because everyone has their own perspective on fitness and participation. I didn’t play ANY sports of any kind growing up so I had no...

How many of you have been lidfting for many decades and have it not backfire on you. I hear so many things, like injuries, heart not as strong, glaucoma...

Minimum time for hypertrophy cycle

What is the minimal time a hypertrophy cycle could be useful? I may come across as Naive here, but I dont know anything about bodybuilding at all. If you dont read my journal my chosen path for fitness is mostly "weightlifting": "Clean and Jerk", and the "Snatch", with some conditioning... I...

35 yrs old. general thoughts

Hi all, first time posting here. I just wanted to lay out my overall approach and see what your thoughts are, if any. As background, I started going to the gym after a very long hiatus after college around 2 years ago. I tried some programming (SL, SS and Greyskull LP), all variants of the same...

Test Booster/ health issues

I will try to make this as concise as possible. I have always been in great health. Played college football. In really good shape, workout daily, do not drink, smoke or drugs. About 3 and a half years ago I began taking some over the counter testosterone boosters because a friend recommended to...

Time Warp - Dug out my pics from high school 33 years ago! Then and now pics

After I took my “glamour shot” pics last weekend I couldn’t wait to dig out my pics from high school. Took a while to find them but I did and this is so cool! I also have my weight and measurements from then so I included a comparison of the numbers also. This was early in my senior year of...

Lifting with rheumatoid arthritis or arthritis in general?

Rheumatoid arthritis runs in my family, and most of us get it in our early 20s. I am not quite 35 yet, but figured I would make the topic here as arthritis is usually a condition associated with older people. I noticed about a year ago that my joints would be throbbing when I woke up in the...

Recommend a hypertrophy program for a 39 yr old natural?

Hey guys. I just turned 39 and have been natural my entire life. I have used and modified an old college football weightlifting program for years. I'm looking for something different. I finished a 35 lbs cut from April-mid August, then the past 6 weeks did a modified Westside program to gain...

Over-training/over-reaching

Is it possible to over-train on one lift only while related movements aren't affected? If anyone else has had a similar problem, if like some advice on how you moved past it. For a while, I progressed on bench press until several weeks back when I become progressively weaker each week both in...

Safety Squat Bar - Who Uses One?

I got one a few days ago and absolutely love it. No more shoulder pain! One thing I've noticed is that I actually squat a little deeper than when I did back squats. Maybe it's because there's no shoulder pain and I'm able to concentrate 100% on my legs? I don't know. After much research, I...

Injury causing muscle shrinkage normal?

Question about injuries and muscles. I came down with a case of golfers elbow on my dominate side. I ignored it for about two weeks, got it diogonosed,and have been wearing a little brace on my forearm for about 3 weeks. Within that time frame it looks like the bicep/arm on that side has...

Funny re: losing weight as an "old"

I just think this is hilarious and am wondering if it's happened to other people. Intentionally losing fat in your 20s or 30s: "OMG YOU LOOK FANTASTIC!! Wow! How did you do it?" Intentionally losing fat in your 40s+: In a discreet whisper "are you ok? Oh, good! I was worried you might be...

Strength loss on a cut

I have only been cutting about 2 weeks and my flat BB bench and incline DB bench are losing strength already. All my other lifts are staying the same or increasing still yet I feel weak on my bench.

Keep having pain

It's really hard to work out or do anything for that matter when you keep getting muscle strains. 😭 I know I'm doing something wrong. I can use my treadmill now, but cannot use the weight lifts. Could not even walk last week after helping my aunt paint her house. Now it feels like I have a...

Skin problems from lifting

Do any of you get boils from friction? I just got one under my arm, not in the pit, but just below. Doesn't hurt so much, more annoying at this point. I don't mess with it, just shower as usual and use a hot compress. Just curious if this is a common thing the longer you lift. I am coming up...

newbie and definition

Hi all, first post here. I'm struggling to move on from getting bigger/stronger to actually losing that final bit of stomach and create more actual definition. I've never had defined biceps and they are getting bigger but pretty shapeless. I work on the weight machines and dumbbells at local gym...

You're Obsessed
