Starting out in my 40's

So back story, been lifting since March 2016. Wife and I decided to get in shape after our dog passed away and we didn't have to be home as much.

Question First Cycle advice? would it help

You were already told this is a banned topic. If you aren't smart enough to figure that out, you sure aren't smart enough to try any supplements.

Sudden weight loss in the space of a week

Been cutting for 4-5 months so far. Started at 210 pounds, somewhere between 20-30% bf I would guess. My original goal was to get to 182 pounds but once I reached that, there were still no abs in sight so I decided to go for 168 pounds. Apart from at the beginning, I've been steadily losing...

Metabolic Damage?

I was just watching an episode of Adam ruins everything and the subject was low fat items (and how the sugar industry whammyed us) as well as dieting, calorie counting and whatnot.

Lower (distal) Bicep Pain

I have a bit of pain in my right arm biceps, an inch or two from the crook of my elbow. It may be more annoyance than pain. No pain in my elbow. Pullups hurt (palms facing out), but chinups (palms in) and neutral grip (palms facing each other) didn't used to hurt. But now all forms hurt. ...

This question is for the guys who cut dramatically for competitions (mostly because they have experience in prolonged deficits). My question is how many calories do you drop below your TDEE and how long do you sustain it for? Any metabolic issues?

Question Looking To Build Up Grip Strength -- Suggestions?

After pulling something in my left wrist last week and now pulled something in my right forearm, I now realize that my grip strength is the issue.
