Arrow Sticky Thread Sticky: The Official Ov35 Bench Press Thread!

May as well throw this one out there so we have all 3 major lifts represented. :) Open to ideas as to how things should run but here's how I see it..... - must be Flat BB Bench only (using an OLY bar). No Incline Bench, Decline Bench or DBs. - Raw lifts only. No shirted benching. (wrist...

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,...

Eating is the hard part not the lifting.

Yes we all know that to get big you need to eat big, my problem is now at 47 years old I don't have a big appetite. I'm still a 3 meal a day guy and anymore I have to force feed myself. I have officially 1 year under my belt of weight training as I was a full time runner for the past 15 years. I...

Who else has had their fair share of resets?

Been at this whole lifting heavy things game since January. About a month ago I experienced a minor hamstring pop/pull while deadlifting. Was up to 315 for reps. So i completely reset... started with just a few lbs on the bar with high reps and worked my way back up. Just hit 315 for reps...

Can 5Kg dumbbells increase muscle size?

First my apologies for the newbie question. Can a pair of 5Kg dumbbells be used to increase muscle size in someone that didn't weightlift before and has very limited muscular mass and a slim build? Mostly taking about arms and maybe a bit of shoulders. Thanks in advance for your help.

35 yrs old. general thoughts

Hi all, first time posting here. I just wanted to lay out my overall approach and see what your thoughts are, if any. As background, I started going to the gym after a very long hiatus after college around 2 years ago. I tried some programming (SL, SS and Greyskull LP), all variants of the same...

leg strength for backpacking

I backpack in very steep terrain (e.g. Grand Canyon) a lot and am trying to figure out the best workout. Also, I'm 65yo. In the past, I've trained by climbing tall staircases (100+ steps) wearing a heavy backpack (48lb on my 170lb frame, but actually hiking I rarely carry much more than 40lb). ...

Muscle twitching during a spell of inactivity?

I had 1 month without weights because im working in the middle of nowhere - im just running every other day instead. My tricep and back muscles are sometimes twitching - what could this be? Is it a sign of losing gains?

Question ~ Grumpy Old Man ~

Greetings fit people! I have a question I hope someone can help me with. I turned 50 this year and over the past several years I seem to have little zest for life. I work out and eat fairly well but there's no joy, period. I read when we age our bodies don't produce serotonin like we were in our...

Uneven shoulders

Hey guys, When I was younger my shoulders were slightly uneven and it was barely noticeable. Never thought too much of it. I've been weightlifting consistently for almost 6 months now and I noticed today that my shoulders are more uneven than ever. I would think that working out would help fix...

45 Year Old and Pre Workouts

I’m 45 years old and in pretty good shape. I go to the gym 2 maybe 3 times a week. My schedule is limited due to work and teenagers. Back 8-9 years ago, I used to take superpump 250 before workouts and then whey protein shake afterwards. I still do the whey protein afterwards occasionally but...

Sets and reps for over 60

Hi guys, I'm 61 and just starting. My experience? I've read several books. I'm looking to something like what Mike Menzer wrote in High Intensity Training.

What is the ideal weekly frequency?

Recently I have been trying out different frequencies to see what my body best responds to. I assumed upping a main lift from 2x a week to 3 or 4x per week would substantially increase progress. It has not, over the last 1 month of doing this. I would say the gains are more reliable though (well,...

Are body split workouts not the natural?

I have been doing a body split workout forever, but now doing some reading into splits (this is why it's always bad to do too much reading about bodybuilding, too much information out there and what's true or not), most information I'm getting is body splits are not for natural body builders.

Got a CPAP machine on Friday

I had to get a CPAP machine because I've developed Sleep Apnea. Apparently, this is a result of my tiring of that "Wide in the Shoulder, narrow in the hip" look, and going for more belly development. Additionally, my doctor is sending me to a nutritionist, for counseling. I wasn't sure I had...

42 and feeling it.

Came to the hard realization I'm not in my 20s anymore, lol. I've had a long layoff from lifting, about 7 years. I kept fit other ways. Started back the first week of June and I was 173lbs (6'1" and was sporting the thin runners frame). Thank God for muscle memory as I've already gained almost...

Age over 65

I'm now 65 and have been working out for most of my adult life. It keeps me sane and mobile! Over the last couple of years, I've noticed that injuries are taking much longer to heal, and over the last two months, it's taking longer to recover. Now, I can't move the weights I did last year. Dropping...
