Hello again. Just starting back.

It's pretty much been 8yrs. since I trained with any consistency, starting back at 44 now. Last couple years I've been eating like crap, lots of fast food and beer. Finally got tired of feeling tired every day and hungover pretty much every Saturday. Started cleaning up my diet bigtime and...

The Dumbell vs Barbell debate

I was at the gym and a trainer made a comment that I should stop doing dumbbells and focus on heavy barbell instead. Now if I was training as a power lifter I might agree. When I questioned him on it he literally said " I train the CEO of Nike, I made a quater million dollars last year, when I give...

Meniscus Tear

For those who got snipped - how long recovery?

I'm taking the bullets out of the gun late next month. I'm assuming a full week off with no major activity whatsoever is key. It will be a month out from a GORUCK endurance event I have planned though - think carrying backpacks over long distances, CrossFit-style workouts, and carrying heavy...

Talking 45 year old semi-beginner

Hi, I've been lifting seriously ( well consistently at least ) for about a year and a half the more I read the more confused I am about my program. I wanted to share my progress and get people's thoughts. For the first year I was pretty much doing a squat, bench, deadlift and pullup workout 3...

Quad sweep

Extensions with toes pointing in, walking lunges with weight, high rep squats. Nothing seems to bring out that sweep. My upper legs are severely lacking. Hopefully this can’t be a genetic factor? 18.5” femur for the win lol. Any tips on getting the outers to come in would be greatly appreciated.

UK gyms reopen maybe July?

No date but rumour is gyms in UK reopen July if all is well. The uk's trade association for gyms ukactive has guidance which is fairly vague but does have specific things such as workout towels banned, 3m squared per person and obvious things about cleaning....

Feel pulling in testicles w/ KB swings ?

My first block today after warm up was a pyramid KB swing (5x50-10x45-15x40-20x35-25x30-20x35-15x40-10x45-5x50). About halfway through I began feeling a pulling in my left nut and decided to stop. First time I've ever felt anything other than muscle soreness w/ KB swings. Searches online didn't...

Sets between meetings

Are long periods between sets bad? I have been working from home and brought out my old bench. I have been wondering if my method is hurting my gains. I will go do a set of bench press and then take a meeting for maybe an hour and then do a set of incline. If it is bad for gains why? Because I am...
