Question Where's the best place to learn proper form for DLs & squats?

Hi, I'm a 49yo female, 119 lbs, lifting for about a year but have gotten more serious in the last month. I've never had serious back problems other than occasional muscle soreness and tightness relieved by heat, massage, NSAIDS, etc. So many older folks have back issues, especially with...

Weight loss or weight gain.

Question for everyone. I have bulked up to 155 (not intentionally) as of recent. Still on the fierce 5 program. I know its probably different per individual, but if you do a calorie deficit +/-, exercise remains the same as well as your diet not changing, how long does it take in general for your...

Missed the Wagon?

Hi Wonder if anyone can offer some pointers on what appears to be a fairly complex situation? I'm probably going to get flamed like a witch for this... :) Background: I'm 46, was an athletic kid, 5'11", spent most of my life weighing around 65KG (10 - 10.5 stone). Used to run a lot of...

Am I ready to start bulking...

Okay guys I have worked hard (for me) and I am now here to ask some advice. I started cutting the first of August from 196 lbs. I was your classic skinny fat (or maybe just fat). 41 years old and 5 10. I've been hitting the gym hard 3 times a week alternating upper and lower body. As of...

If you don't care about strength is there any reason to do low rep sets?

I see it written here that a lot of guys have backed off low rep sets to go easier on their bodies. I very rarely do low rep work myself -- my preferred rep scheme is 10-12. I use micro weights to progress (usually 2 lbs a week, 1 to 1.5 for the Overhead press). I'm happy with my visual progress...

I have a re-occurring injury in my upper spine. it's a disk low in the neck and when I turn my head to the left it feels like I'm having a heart attack (shooting pain from behind my scapula out to the front of my chest) and I get tingling and issues with my left arm. It comes and goes and is...

What's up all, So, I have been living with a base level of pain for years that I just chalked up to being a symptom of my (old) line of work. I started lifting about a year and a half ago, but didn't start taking it seriously until about 8-10 months ago when I started my first cut, and lost about...

Getting your gains back after cut

How long does it normally take to get all your strength back after a cut? So last year I started my first bulk which was a dirty bulk. I was pretty happy with my strength gains but I also caked on 30 to 35lbs of fat. I spent all of my summer trying to cut off the damage of that dirty bulk and...

Weight training on Levaquin

As fate would have it, I encountered my second sinus infection this year. I usually get one around February and October. The only difference now is I am allergic to penicillin, so was prescribed Levaquin. Now, I've heard the horror stories about Levaquin and tendon/joint issues, so I was...

Cocoa powder

My friend was telling me about Cocoa powder and the benefits of taking it. I read up on it and was interested in reading that, in addition to antioxidant properties and it's effect on blood pressure, it is a food source that can raise HDL. So I put 4 tbsp in my oatmeal this morning of...

Question about proper form and fierce 5

So I am currently training with the fierce 5 program. My question is, if your form is not proper when moving up in weight due to the weight being too heavy, even after deloading 15%, what then?

When To Deload

I've been seeing a lot of 'When should I deload, bro?' threads lately. Hope this will help. The answer is depends. Ehr-body is different. As a rule of thumb I provide my lifters, ride the train til it almost stops. You don't want the train to fully stop on the way to Snap City, but you...

What does it mean if your low back feels sensitive after rack pulls?

I do rack pulls about 3 inches below the knee and about 80 lbs heavier than my deadlift (started about the same but worked up quickly; I guess the movement is slightly different). When I'm done, my low back is sensitive. It doesn't hurt, but if I do any other compounds that stress the full...

Lifting with rheumatoid arthritis or arthritis in general?

Rheumatoid arthritis runs in my family, and most of us get it in our early 20s. I am not quite 35 yet, but figured I would make the topic here as arthritis is usually a condition associated with older people. I noticed about a year ago that my joints would be throbbing when I woke up in the...

Hey gang. I just turned 35 a week ago, so I guess I belong in this thread... far far away from the young studs. :) I'm trying to get back into shape and I'd like to solicit some advice from some folks who are similar (physically) to me. I'm 6'2" 225 lbs. I don't really care what I weigh, but I...

Better to do more volume on the same exercise, or diversify?

I used to do 3 sets each of hanging leg raises and standing ab wheel per week. Now I just do the standing ab wheel. Progress was very slow before, but now I'm more stable, go further down and for more reps too. And I only made this change 3 months ago. I've experienced the same thing on my bench...
