Wrinkle remedies

I am going to do my first BB show in over 30 years in a few months, and being an old guy, I have some wrinkles on my belly. Anybody found anything topical that helps with that?

Total Weight or Lean Body Mass when calculating protein needs?

What do you guys use? Total weight or LBM? I'm about 17% BF right now at 168 pounds, if I was looking to consume 1 gram per pound it's a difference of 168 grams verses 139 grams... pretty significant. What do you guys go with? Thanks!

Ten Weeks Post Hernia Op

On August 15th I went in to have my 20-year-old hernia repaired. I had been putting it off for so long thinking it wasn't that big a deal. I had even consulted with a surgeon about 10 years ago who told me that as long as it's not bothering me physically or emotionally, I didn't really need to get...

I am going to rant a minute here. I really suck at sustained weight loss. I understand the concepts, macros, weighing food, tracking calories, deficit targets- and I can put them in place, but I constantly sabotage myself. Its driving me nuts. I am stronger than I have ever been (at least on...

When can I realistically expect visible results?

Hi everyone! I’m 41 and the reason I ask this question is that whilst I trained a lot in my 20’s (was super fit my entire 20’s), a little in my early 30’s, but absolutely no weight training since my second child was born 8 years ago (trained until I was 8 weeks pregnant with her then stopped when I...

Bulking & Cutting in your 50's: Perspectives Wanted

Hello all - I am believer in bulking and cutting, but wondering about it's value for the advanced over 50 natural lifter. I believe a calorie surplus is OPTIMAL for muscle growth, and then a cut following a bulk is usually necessary to get rid of the fat that accompanies the muscle gain. That said,...
