Walmart rotisserie chicken

I'm looking to get my BF down, and sometimes I pick up a Walmart rotisserie chicken when I'm on the road or in a hurry. I'd never eat fried, and I wanted to check and see if others also eat Walmart chicken? Assuming I take the skin off, I'm hoping it's an acceptable lowfat option. It *does* seem...

Wanting to say goodbye to my 'Dad bod'...

I'm sure I'm going to hit most newbie cliches here, but I have read a lot of the stickies, and am looking for anything from a simple "hello, good luck!" in response to this, my first post, to anything constructive that can improve my plan. I'm 38, and for most of my life I've been quite skinny...

Worse than leg day

So my back is pretty messed up, new work routine, your exercise ideas welcome

It's taken almost a year to get an MRI and diagnosed, but to keep it short my L5 S1 is f'd up and pushing on the nerve, and I have multiple disc degeneration and herniations. When I'm good it's like amped up doms, 24/7, when I'm bad it's kind of nasty. I have a bit of a limp because the nerves in...

Question about progressive resistance - what happens when your strength is maxed out?

It seems it's an undisputed fact (isn't it?) that hypertrophy requires progressive resistance. What happens when you inevitably hit your personal ceiling? I say inevitably because if not, eventually we would all be benching 1000 pounds (if we were training, eating and resting properly). Does that...

What should I expect at 44?

I'm not new to physical activity. I've trained (weight lifted) on and off through the years but not seriously. The last 6 years have been a lot of calisthenic programs like P90X, P90X3 and a couple others. 5 days a week, pretty religiously. But we're talking just 30 minutes a day, high intensity....

Workout for middle aged man

Hi, I am wondering if higher reps workout will be better for older man since we don't build muscles that easily compare to younger men. I was thinking of doing fullbody 3 times a week rather than split workout. Any testo booster would you recommend? Does anyone find multivitamin...

Has anyone tested out going straight from cut to bulk?

I was intending to but a wrist injury kept me away for a week right at the transition. Of course the idea is that you give your body a week to reset its hormones and not pile on the fat. But for me, I've noticed that the studies seem to show that putting on mass is simpler by the year (as one...

Should added reps be preferred over weight if you just want to get big?

I've been reading that volume is #1 when it comes to mass gain. So if we hold an exercise constant, you might progress like this: 10 x 100 = 1000 10 x 102 = 1020 10 x 105 = 1050 or this: 100 x 11 = 1100 100 x 12 = 1200

Paid gym vs. home gym

The gym I go to is great, but it's about 10 miles from my house (it had great membership rates). Since I work 8-5, I can't go right after work since it's cram-packed then, and I hate having to wait in line to workout. I either have to wait until later in the evening - when I'm more tired and sleepy...

Do Newbie Gains ever come back? Or it it a one-time thing?

I stopped working out in November, after training 65 days in a row. I've trained semi-consistently since 2012, so would newbie gains come back if I took a couple of months off from lifting? Or is it a one time thing? I'm 46 years old

Let’s talk about my back…and Boyer Coe

OK, bear with me guys…. (Pictures to follow) So, I don’t spend a ton of time taking pictures of myself, and when I do, they are usually spontaneous, from the front, and of my upper body (usually because I wear long pants when I work out). This morning I decided to include a leg shot and a...

Hey HNY everyone, what are your thoughts on Stretching (Prior, during, after your workout...). Reason I ask is that I've always been under the impression that you shouldn't really stretch a cold muscle and should do some kind of warm up first. I was at the gym yesterday getting my New Years...
