Deadlift - form check

Jumping around with trying to find the right sets and reps for deadlifts I find 4 x 6 to be the perfect fit for me. This was my last set @ 260lbs x 4 225 x 4 245 x 4 245 x 4 260 x 4 My problem is I tend to be being doing a stiff legged deadlift instead of deadlift, and not leaning...

How much do you really need a day and does age make a difference ? 1.5g per kg is what ive been doing , so 140g, based on intake spread across the day (max 20-30g) at a time - using shakes to supplement . Seems a lot though ! For you older guys who’ve worked out more wonder what your findings...

Smile Quick question: I think I may not be working out hard enough

So I work out 5 days a week. I've extended my time to allow more work to be done and have split the routine to upper body day and lower body day (never more than 2 days of each in a week) My upper body strength is terrible and always has been. When I lift I find my biceps quit on me fast. To the...

Bulking (rubber banding?) after 57 lb cut

Hey so I used to be super active here and got pretty strong a few years back. I had a kid and stopped lifting and got real sloppy. I decided at 195 I’d had enough and went on omad I was relatively careful about protein but didn’t lift at all so I lost a ton of muscle. I ended up at 137 at my...

Machines for drop sets ?

I don’t really use machines but wondering if they may have a place in my routine somewhere as a chance to mix things up Thinking drop sets esp for things like lat pull downs, chest press , shoulder press machine etc ? Anyone else done this and seen good results or a waste of time ?

Kettlebell prone rows are good

I've always loved DB rows done face down on a plank in my power rack but the problem is the DBs sometimes hit the board at the top which can ruin your focus and prevents you from using a narrow grip or pronating very much I just discovered how great a variation kettlebells are for this lift, you...

1. Make sure your age is set correctly in your profile. Since this is an age-aware-related forum, you don't want your age to be shown as 49-old, while you are 35-young. 2. Before replying to a thread, look at the date of the last post. Are you sure you want to resurrect a 10-year old post? ...
