Struggling with building strength, stamina, and endurance

I am 42m, 5'11". I don't look my age according to most, but I have been severely overweight for a number of years due to unhealthy eating habits, depression, and life's circumstances. Over the last 18+ months I have dropped around 60-70 lbs through healthy eating and cardio. Progress stopped a few...

Going off blood pressure meds

Got the all clear to go off my Bp meds. I should probably ask this in a different forum but for those who were on bp meds and went off, what can I expect? How did you guys feel? Any body changes? Or anything weird that you noticed? Thanks

Can anyone recommend a weight trianing program for someone with bad knee and elblow?

I have tendonitis in both my right knee and right elbow. Both have been this way for years, it's not real bad, I can more or less work around it until (or if) they both heal. Can anyone recommend me a good training program with such injuries? Could I do Fierce Five and simply make substitutes?...

Glute Activation Journey...for funsies

I just had my first workout ever in which I was able to split squat 2x50 dumbbells, all the while my knee tracking perfectly, and not wavering. For me, this was huge. I started with a 95# squat and 315# deadlift. In hindsight, I can say that my deadlift was straight leg; after correcting...

6th month of “minimum”...I dunno guys

So, I’m into my 6th month of doing a “minimum“ workout that takes me 30 minutes, 3 days a week...so 1 1/2 hours a week total. I’ve totally stopped monitoring diet. I generally eat healthier than most, but there’s been plenty of junk too. I just eat whatever when I’m hungry until I’m satisfied. ...

Deloading Properly

I've hit the wall on the barbell row (70kg) and the overhead press (52.5kg) and I can't seem to push past these amounts no matter how many times I deload. Am I doing it wrong? Once I fail to hit 5x3 in a session I'll take 10kg off for the next session and slowly build up by adding 2.5kg each...

Body Composition Scales - drop in muscle, up in fat?!?

8-Week Intensity/Volume Experiment

While recently listening to an older Pavel podcast, I heard him say how most of the time Russian lifters are using 1/3 to 2/3 of their max reps. So even if they could lift a particular weight 9 times, most of the time they're only lifting it 3-6 times. I almost always lift one set to near failure...

Just venting

This isn't about advice, it's more just to vent. In 2012 I had the worst chronic fatigue of my life, for reasons that are more complex than a simple post can explain, I believed I had MS and decided to "give up" for the year on working out and spent the entire year on my couch. As an ecto, I...
