Post Month 5. Good results (I think), misc. advice appreciated

Before / After picture in the attachment. Small, bad quality, but should give a general idea. Given I didn't move a muscle for 20 years, I think what I achieved in 4 months is not that bad - but now I am facing this ugly situation - which I think must be quite common - where I am all pumped up...

Curious if anyone in here has a stent in their heart and if so how long before you were working out 100% again? and did you start off small and work your way up or go full bore? I just got a stent in my left ventricle and I havent hit the gym since but Im itching to get back on the weights.

Failure vs Intensity... Is training to failure beneficial?

been lifting (bodybuilding) since 1981 (besides a 2 year injury and 9 year taekwondo hiatus), and back then, at least where I was from, everyone preached going to failure on every set. Ya know screaming in your face "one more rep" while "Going the Distance" from Rocky played in the background. So,...
