Question Experienced lifters and 3xFBW?

This is more of a question for those who lifted for a longer period of time (8yrs+) than just "older" people but I figured I'd find most of them here. So do FBWs still work for you, and do you do them? I'm a 36yo/f/clean/10yrs lifting and I found.. no matter what science and the internet say,...

Anyone actually try squats everyday?

I don't want to hear any arm chair quarterbacks. I want to hear from some one that has actually tried squats every day. I started it then got interrupted (that's my luck). I am finishing it up or taking my last 20 or now 19 days left to finish it. I was actually pretty impressed at the start and...

legs never hurt like other muscles ?

I work the hell out of my legs but they never seem to hurt the next day like other hard work muscles... i can't even fatigue them either.. or it would take a lot of sets to do so. Right now i'm doing about 350kg on the free weight leg press and although i feel it heavy, i struggle to not be able...

Good alternative to Preacher Curls

I have always been a big fan of seated preacher curls with an EZ bar. Like how it really seemed to isolate the biceps and give a crazy burn. However, years of doing heavy preacher curls (I'd usually put a 45 pound plate on each side of 25 pound EZ bar, sometimes add additional weight) has...

Training first thing in the morning. Heavy on an empty stomach

Hello everyone first post. Does anyone else have experience of having to train at a very early hour. The nature of my job and family means the only time I have to train is at 5.30 am. I cannot be bothered to get up an hour early to eat so I go to the gym on empty. Save for water. Soon as I am...

Anyone ever have high Creatine Kinase?

After switching healthcare my new Dr wanted to check my CK and ALS because of a change in statin. I never had a CK test before even though my previous doctor had me on a satin. Statins are known for increased CK. In February I had a value of 703 with a range 36-340. I stopped working out and...

help to shift fat?

Hi! I've been training hard for 2.5 years now. Before that I trained in my 20's and early 30's before taking a 4-5 year break (tiredness from having young children go the better of me!) Anyhow, over the past couple of years I've packed on a good bit of beef and changed shape for the better. ...
