Old But Not Done Yet!

51 today! 9 years under the rack!

I’m 51 today and I’ve been back in the gym for 9 years now. This is officially 1 year longer than I lifted in my teens and twenties so long ago...with no end in sight. On my birthday I like to reflect on what I learned over the last year (about lifting and my body), and I feel this year was...

Honest Educated Critique of My Workout Scheme Please

Hey everyone, Let me be very honest up front. I've avoided this forum for a long time. Why? Because the responses I read are sometimes simply uneducated, vague and frankly stupid. I'm 38 years old now; a grown man with a wife and an 11 yr old. I'm looking for mature responses from those of us...

Healing slower

I'm healing at a rate 2x slow as I was in my 20's. Joints are the main problem. Have to wait 3 days sometimes to workout the same muscle group, when I used to do it every day all week and rest on Saturday and Sunday. This is bull****.

Question Why does my whole body hurt

Why does my body hurt after an intense evening of yoga and stretching? It hurts while moving in one direction and after getting used to it it hurts moving in the other direction. Why is that? Should I move more or rest more?

Deadlift form

I know this is like my 3rd video on the deadlift, but really working on perfecting my form. This was my last set for 300lbs, my last video, on the descent the bar was swaying out, I think I have tightened up the line of path, but could use more tightening. Are my hips too high? ...

Squat shoes

Those who wear squat shoes such as Do-Win Gong Lu II, do you switch to other/flat shoes for other lifts (especially deads)?

Pull-ups

Can anyone tell me if doing pull-ups with neutral will have any carryover to doing pull-ups with a wide pronated grip? I have lost the ability to do the latter and was wondering if by doing pull-ups with a neutral grip (which I can still do) will help me transition back into wide grip pull-ups. I...

Fat for Five Years and Two Million Dollars

For all you hard-core athletes, consider this fictitious proposition. For five years, you must stop exercising. You may walk only when absolutely necessary. Those with labor-intensive jobs would not qualify for the opportunity. You must eat 4000 to 6000 calories per day. Your diet will be dictated...
