Thumbs up Sticky Thread Sticky: This week in the O35 II

On this day BLK00TJ is competing at the 2015 Mid-Atlantic State Championships and Military Nationals. I've competed alongside this lifter and his squat is nothing short of elite. Yesterday I had a few surprise PR's in the gym (sorry no pics or vids) Barbell Bench 265 x 6, Dumbells 110's x 9,...

The Truth About Kettlebells

I've dabbled with kettlebells here and there, but not really at all in the last 10 years, however from what I know about what they can do from experience and what I've been seeing lately, most folks who have been on serious kettlebell routine only, meaning "strongfirst" certified type instructor...

How to size clothing and should I exchange my new jeans?

A bulk adds 15 to 20 lbs. A cut loses 10 to 15 lbs. How the hell to choose clothes sizes? I ride bikes a lot in the city and my pants are all getting shredded in the crotch. I ordered a pair from Swrve. Some stretch, got slim fit (not skinny lol). They are a bit tight in the waist, and thighs...

Intro: I am 181cm tall (5.94 ft) and almost 44 yrs old.

Oh what’s this thread about? Looks interesting!

S’up? If you want to waste some time reading interesting facts you’ve come to the right place! Ok, here’s the first one: Tom Hanks is a bit of a crazed typewriter collector. According to the beloved actor, he’s purchased over 80 of them from around the world since 1978. ‘Why?’ you might ask....

Umbilical Hernia. Can I still lift after surgery

I've had a small umbilical hernia for a while and lifted with no problems. It recently got bigger, started hurting, and became strangulated. I was able to avoid emergency surgery because it popped back in while I was in the emergency room. I still have to schedule surgery soon though. Will I...

43 and looking to return - seeking any input or experiential advice you guys got

Been retired from the military about 3 years now and aside from adding on a good 15 pounds near the end of my career rising to about 233, I am now living large at 263 having gained another 30 retirement pounds. Not that it is a good excuse, but in 2012 my first son was born with another in 2014 so...

2 year update, some training questions

I’ve been following starting strength* with some good results, but the * is part of my question. Overall I’ve gained a lot of strength, some weight but not too much. I’m happy considering my age (46) and tendency to be a hard gainer. I’m 5’11”, now 168 pounds. Bench reps are at 190, deadlifts at...

Body fat / physical health

I'm fairly satisfied with my overall health/fitness, but my shoulders are dis-proportionally small. Give me some ideas for good shoulder routines. I'm 5'10" 168 lbs and 38 years old. I do a 3-day gym split: chest/triceps on day 1, back/biceps on day 2, and shoulders on day 3. These are spread...

Cannot get comfortable in bed!

This is a problem that has plagued me for the last year or so since lifting: I cannot get comfortable in bed at night. All of my life I've slept on my front with my hands under the pillow, but now when I do this at least one of my arms tends to go numb (pins and needles). I also like sleeping...

Growing calves - what's your sweet spot?

The most stubborn body part for me to even show some growth has always been the calfs. I have slow twitch muscles and discovered high reps do nothing for me. I used to be a long distance runner and played lots of basketball growing up, always had skinny legs and calfs. I have found...

Shoulder problems

I've had shoulder impingement in both shoulders for a year or so. I was training 6 days a week and 7 months ago I tore my bicep in the shoulder. I stupidly tried to train through it and tore my rotator cuff in the same shoulder. I started training again after 4 months after finding out the root...

Are the 2 consecutive days rests per week necessary for full body workouts?

Example is the SL 5x5 which is 3 times per week which will give you a 2 consecutive rest days per week and will give you around 13 workout days per month. How about I modify it to alternating days? 50:50 ratio which is workout day then rest day. It will give me 15 workout days per month and 15 rest...

Post Just started up 3 weeks and a day ago.

OK so I'm sure some of you may judge me I hope not. Years ago I was in great shape. I did boxing, Thai boxing, grappling, I lifted weights, I was a 10 to 12% body fat at one point, 5 ft 8". So last year and a half I ended up with a bad coke problem, very bad, I almost lost everything...

Rotator Cuff Surgery again.... this time the other shoulder

I had extensive rotator cuff surgery on my right shoulder 5 years ago (required 7 anchors). It feels great now, but took 18 months to really feel good. On February 28 I go back in for the left shoulder. In both cases, the shoulder got worse and worse over time, it wasn't a single episode or injury....

jeans/shorts that fit good

Does anyone know where I can find shorts and/or jeans that are made to fit someone with large thighs and a fairly small waist? Levi's 560 was a good fit until they stopped making them. I tried Levi's 559 which don't fit quite as good. Every other jeans I try on have to have a waist so big in...

Current BF estimate

Hi guys, been awhile. I have been attempting a slow bulk on 3500 cals for the past couple of months while running a german volume training cycle. What I have noticed is that my level of leanness appears to be far from what it was despite only adding 2 pounds to the scale in 2 months. I started at...

Fat, Older, Tired and Work in A Factory. How Do I Fix This?

I'm way over 35. I'll be turning 46 in March. I wish there were an over 45 forum, I looked but didn't find one. I hear a lot about it is really hard if not impossible to build muscle as a middle-aged man. To make matters worse I work in a factory on an assembly line, sometimes 12 hours a day. If...
