Reverse Diet or Keep Grinding

I'm 44 years old. I've been dieting for 2.5 years and have lost 90 pounds. I lift weights 4 days a week and do cardio 4-5 days a week. I have an office job, so I sit all day. In the past 4 weeks I have only lost 1 pound. I'm just curious if my metabolism hasn't adapted enough over the past 2.5...

Elbow tendonitis - original thread disappeared?

I started a thread here about a week ago regarding tendonitis I've developed in both elbows. There was quite a bit of positive feedback, and then I noticed over the last day or two that the thread is completely gone!

Can only 50% of your surplus go to muscle gain even at +250?

Of course you'll never convert everything to muscle but I thought that training hard and keeping the surplus at around +250 could get you maybe 80/20 muscle to fat. But I recently read about the "p ratio" that says only elite genetics can achieve that; the vast majority of us can only hope for...

My before and after photos (aged 35)

In my early 30s, I was really unhappy with my physique as I'd always been overweight (195lbs at my peak with a 40" beer belly). I wanted to improve my physique by the time I reached my mid-30s so that I could take my top off on the beach without being embarrassed. Therefore, in 2015, I started...

Sholder noises doing presses.

Hi! I'm 59 and doing presses with 26 lbs of weight, plus those old school large iron collars on a 4ft bar, so figure 30lbs total. I hear and feel a popping sound from my right shoulder on the down movement. Doesn't hurt, should I be concerned or is this typical old age noises? Thanks, Mark.

Anyone With Shoulder Arthritis?

Learned recently that I have osteoarthritis in my left shoulder, probably from an old (non-lifting) injury many years ago. Still managing to lift pretty well, but the issue is likely to progress. Anyone out there dealing with this? Any special approach that's worked for you?
