Thumbs down Potential right rhomboid strain/pull, beneath my shoulder blade.

Just so we're clear, everyone has their opinions on stretching before they work out. I 90% of the time pull a muscle when I stretch before a workout and I feel like a fool for stretching upon my arrival the gym. If I do stretch is between workout, but not before the initial workout, it never works...

Doing the minimum (...or what the heck happened to grubman?)

It would be extremely arrogant of me to have expected anyone to notice I haven’t been “active” on the forums for 3 1/2 months. But this morning I took the first pictures in that time, and felt an “update” and “explanation” might be interesting. So, while I have many other interests, Lifting...

Lessons learned in a decade of lifting

Thought I'd close the decade by sharing a few things I've learned, many of them right here on this very site. Just over 10 years ago, I was a smoking, boozing, lost person. A whopping 6' 148lbs. Through this journey I've learned how to love myself and appreciate all that life has given me. A lot...

Whats your max rate of muscle gain?

Hey, So I'm into my second year of serious weight training. Last year I did the F5 novice, however I bulked to fast, I was only on about 350cal.day surplus. But I gained a lot of fat and ended up spending 7 months of the year cutting. My overall mass gains weren't that good. Looking back on...

Full body

So I've been doing a Push/legs/pull routine for 2 years now and going to switch things up. Going to start a fullbody, as we all know the great old school legends like Reg Park, John Grimeck, Steve Reeves, Leroy Colbart, Paul Grant, Armand Tanny, Vince Gironda, and even Arnold all got amazing...

Sugar "bulking"

Just sharing an idea I am going to try. I am long past the day where I can measure 'progress'. I have to look at my training from a yearly standpoint and even then, things are hard to see. Looking back at this past year, I essentially did nothing. My accomplishment was staying in the gym...

LF: Advice/Guidance on Mass

I have a general question and was basically hoping that one you might be able to link or send me to a guide that can provide information on gaining mass. I'm 43, 6'2" and 193 lbs. Over the course of the last 8 months, I changed my diet, began lifting and doing regular cardio, and dropped about 7%...

Motivation Question

I know the obvious answer is everyone is different, but I started working out and changing my eating habits big time March 2019. I was rolling along, slimmed up, noticeable muscle gain, etc.. feeling great, feeling better than I have in so long. The cold came along and all of a sudden slowly I...

Thumbs down Lifting after a lumbar sprain

Hi guys, First post here on the "Over Age 35" forum, I was mostly on the equipment forum for the last few years. Last December during a badly executed deadlift (back rounded on 3rd out of 4 reps at 225 lbs). As a result, I sprained my back (lumbar sprain around S1-L5 for those that are...

Bicep muscle tearing at 50+ WTF

I first ran into a problem doing dumbbell curls when I was in my early 40s. Not an unusual weight, proper form, but maybe not really warmed up. Forearm ripped at the top and a little strip of meat fluttered down like an elastic band. It destabilized the elbow for close to a year but eventually came...

Flaxseed Oil Side Effects

I curious to know if any of you have ever gotten headaches from taking flaxseed oil. My girlfriend started taking it (at my urging) to help lower her cholesterol. She started getting headaches at about 3-4 weeks out so she stopped taking it. I figured rather than waste all those capsules, I'd start...
