Progressive Overload Discussion (Helms and Israetel)

There have been a few posts recently discussing growth strategies along the load/volume/intensity lines and I thought this podcast was timely. I find these two trainers to be a couple of best listens out there and the discussion in this podcast is excellent. VSdJNDPAWfY

On maintaining and developing good posture as you age.

Any good tips for maintaining and developing good posture as you age? Having lost 35 pounds over the last two years seems to have helped more than anything. Websites are full of advise on how to sit up correctly but I get the feeling that it becomes automatic more than something a person as to...

Questions about where to go from here

Hi all, I'd like to give a quick background. I have not lifted weights for 8 years and am turning 40 this year. I am 6'4" and started a keto diet and have gone from 273 to 230 in 4 months. I've been doing push-ups daily but not much else. I'm really trying to figure out the best way to use my body...

Are my lifts heavy enough for hypertrophy training?

My first post here. Here's s brief intro: I'm 45 years old, 6' tall and currently 160 lbs. I'm a regionally competitive distance runner and have the classic "runner build" (bird-like bone structure, lanky limbs, low muscle mass, etc). I'm literally the opposite build of the classic bodybuilder. ...

My training program: keep, tweak, or discard

I'm so very greatful for the feedback on my first post here yesterday. I take the advice from the experienced lifters here seriously and one thing that most of you said was to get on a program (like SS or SL). I expected this advice because everything I've read online is similar. Furthermore, as...

Tendinitis in the elbow

I have never been a serious lifter but I have always been stronger than average. I am now in my early 50's. A big part of why I never lifted seriously was because I always got tendinitis in my elbows even in HS as well as nerve damage in my left shoulder from hundreds of stingers. I played...

Lowering reps / raising intensity during a cut?

I've been doing a higher rep scheme during my bulk and have been enjoying it while steadily progressing. During a cut though, I get gassed much quicker. Talking to another gym bro about this, he said he switches from 3-4 x 10-12 to 3x5 during a cut. He says it helps him maintain his strength...

My Cortisol Rant

I’ll admit, I never even heard about (or paid any real attention to) Cortisol before, maybe, 6 or so months ago, but lately I hear it thrown around more and more, so I decided to do a little research. Like all the minutia beyond the 3 basics of Rest, Nutrition, and Training, I generally nod my...

42 years old and restarting

Realistic maintenance

6’2 189 Calculator on here estimates my maintenance at 2412. I’m guessing that would put me around 2800 for conservative gains. I ate at 4K for 10 weeks and only gained 8 pounds (pretty much all fat). I have since cut back to 2300 for 4 days now and and have dropped 4 pounds. I started the 4K bulk...

3 meals a day enough to build muscle?

I know the typical eating plan for gaining mass/muscle is to eat 4 to 6 meals day but been wondering for us older guys if that is really necessary. For some, our metabolism slows down. I was trying the 4 meals a day and honestly it become a headache and expensive. So back to 3 meals a day with...

Shoulder Impingement - Bench Alternatives

Hi Guys, well after 18 months of lifting my shoulders are starting to hurt during and after barbell bench press and push ups. I've now started doing a few exercises and warm ups prior to my weight sessions to see if I can alleviate the pain. Of course should the pain gets any worse I'll be...

There is nothing revolutionary in this article, but it is filled with common sense and facts lifters have known forever. It's nice to see the mainstream getting real information without being link to some new trick, fad, or shortcut. ...

Transition from Cut to Clean Bulk; Your thoughts on best way to transition?

Hello all - I have been cutting for 12 weeks, lost 13 pounds which was pretty much right on target as I set my deficit as 500 calories a day (one pound per week). My goal was a slow steady cut to keep muscle and strength which I did. I can (and have) read many articles but was looking for your real...

Split squat.

Got this video off the Exercise section, thought it would be interesting to the over 35's. I love the BSS, it has worked wonders for me, this vid explains the science behind it.

How many times?

Morning! I'm just coming off a long clean bulk (12 months), and now 4 weeks into a moderate cut. While I feel like I've made great strides over the past year, it is pretty clear that I will be doing this cycle several more times to reach my goals. Curious to hear from the community on how many...

North Jersey Bodybuilders from the late 1970's and 80's

Just curious how many of the guys or women here were part of the bodybuilding boom in the Essex County area between the mid 70's through the end of the 80's. At least to me, that seemed like the "golden era" in this area. There were many prominent gyms in the area like Gateway, Viking, Giordano's,...

Warm-ups for Straight sets

I have always trained with pyramiding sets but now I want to switch things up with straight sets. How many warm-up sets do you do for straight sets. I am familiar with how Dorian Yates used to train, basically 3 warm-up sets then his working set at 100%, but I'm not Dorian.

Heavy metal toxicity

Fierce 5 question

With fierce 5 its a 3 day per week cycle, am I allowed to do other cross training on the rest days? I ask this because yes I know bodybuilders are totally against this but I enjoy doing crossfit for a bit of cardio/ high intensity work. I don't go crazy with weight and I don't do kipping...
