Why I Workout At Home

I will be 52 years-old in a few weeks and the endorphins/testosterone or whatever released during lifting along with the music blaring in my headphones makes me feel like a teenager!

Chia Seeds

I recently heard about a plant called Chia. I think it is interesting to everyone. From what I've read this is really great plant with wonderful features. For example: Chia Seeds help suppress the appetite, and contribute to drain toxins from the body. Chia seeds are rich in omega 3, protein and...

Down and Out

I found out recently that I require surgery (on my inner ear of all things)...which is bad enough news. The kicker though, is that post-op, I can't lift anything heavier than 20 lbs., can't do any running, or anything else that is strenuous for 4 weeks. Pretty big bummer for anyone and I'm no...

Blood Pressure

I have been dealing with elevated blood pressure for a while now, but last week I went to donate blood and the nurse took my BP and it registered at 180/110, so I am going to go seem my GP tomorrow and most likely get put on medication before something explodes. Anyone on BP meds? At first I was...

Is this Too Much Volume for a Natural?

Hey everyone, So, I've been trying out high frequency/low volume training for about 5 weeks now, since I was really stalling and maybe even going backwards with a "bro split". I've made decent strength gains, but of course in this short time haven't noticed any hypertrophy. It is a 6 days a...

When do I need a belt or straps?

I’m 45 been lifting a year and trying to get up to 2x body weight for 5 x3 or 4. I’m up to 330lbs and need to get to 375. I really didn’t want to get a belt or straps because I want to increase my grip and I’m keen on strengthening my back. Is there a point where you need to get a belt. My...

Higher volume training for us older dudes?

I've heard that as you get older, training with lighter intensity for more volume can be beneficial as it allows similar gains/hypertrophy but with less stress on your body? I'm 39 halfway to 40...after lifting since my 20s, I've got some kinks here and there like anyone. Thinking of adopting...

Hi everyone. I've been a regular lurker on this site for roughly a year now and I just wanted to post and thank you all for your contributions to the site. The majority of these forums (and many lifting websites in general) really seems to skew towards oneupmanship and a general toxic vibe, but...

How much will illness/lack of sleep/fasting affect natural test levels.

I have been feeling a bit off lately and don’t train with any regularity now as I have a two y/o who is hard work and a business to run. I got my doc to check my test levels and they came back at 565, however I had picked up a bug/virus from my child, was 20hrs into a fast and had not been sleeping...

Hey guys. I'm currently 42 years of age and have been an avid weightlifter for most of my life. Not quite a bodybuilder, but I certainly lived the lifestyle at times until age and injuries began to take their toll. My arms have almost always been a lagging body part for me, stemming from...

5x5 Stronglifts - do people nearly 50 survive this? LOL...

So I'm working on gaining strength/mass (mostly to recover from atrophy due to 5 years of bed-rest), and decided to start a 5x5 stronglifts program... I'm impressed with the gains I've made so far since switching to nothing-but free-weight compound lifts, so a stronglifts program seemed the way to...

Low back problems, why doesn't it get stronger?

Like many, I have lower back problems. I have slightly bulging and degenerative disks in the L4-5 region as well as some muscle issues (right above belt line). 2-3 times a year I throw out my back, sometimes it is nerve related, and others it feels strictly muscular. Just terrible DOMS, spasms, and...

which would be less taxing on the body

more frequent gym visits but less time there.. not doing too much etc.. less frequent visits but hitting it harder... more sets etc... Both will have the same intensity just instead of doing more sets its split out over more visits.

T-Bar Rows.

My workout area is only 12' x 8' but can do some many quality exercises within this space. I'm all about the old school, less is better without the fancy machines. Its that time of year, 25 degrees in the the garage this morning, no heat in winter, no AC in the summer, wouldn't change it,...

Pondering (MEV) Minimum Effective Volume

I've come across the concept of Minimum Effective Volume from Mike Israetel recently. I've been out of it for over 10 years and just started working out again 18 weeks ago. I've started with 10 sets for chest/back and 8 sets for biceps/triceps and was planning to add a set every 4 weeks to see...

Using The Rack For Too Long

Is there a gym etiquette for using the rack for too long? Note that I am active and present the entire time I am using the rack. I don't use my phone, and spend 1 or 2 minutes at most resting between sets. My gym (Anytime Fitness) has two racks. I don't often see a line up, and there are some...

Post 2 years on: 6 months of boom, 6 of progress, 12 of stasis

Told my story before, but - in a nutshell: started 2 years ago as never-exercised-before skeleton-with-a-belly. 40 years old back then, 42 now. I am truly OCD when I get into something, so I consistently worked out 4 or 5 days per week since then, began eating as clean as it gets, and in the...
