Gaining Flexibility...?

Flexibility was never my strongest point; even when I was an athlete. I was a sprinter in High School, and very fast, I had some flexibility, but not a lot. I studied the Martial Arts, I could snap kick someone in the head, but I could never hold my leg up that high. To make a long story short, in...

50M/5'10.5"/148lb Struggling with chest/stomach fat (pics)

I've always been skinny, and several years ago started getting more chest/stomach fat. I've worked out(weights and elliptical for cardio) for a number of years, but haven't progressed much because a spinal fusion and rod don't allow me to lift heavy. My diet is fairly decent, but could be better. ...

The Bench Press

Last set for 185lbs x 6. The barbell bench press gets a back rap today in the fitness world, in fact most workout advice in today's world is horrible. You need to really shift through the sands to find some sound advice. Or to make it easier just only read about old school bodybuilding. I’m...

I use the playbook app to do my spin sessions. Gabriella guarvara is my go to person. However there were Gremlins in the mix! First I got booted out of my app, then my phone didn't recognize that I was casting so it kept shutting down. It also kept going into landscape mode causing my ride to...

beginner soreness - push through? or allow the body to rest/regenerate?

After a few weeks of doing kinda stupid waste-of-time exercises because I didn't know any better I tried my first modified Fierce 5 routine yesterday.

High rep workout

I was recently told by my eye doctor to cut back on weight training. This will be at least a 5 week layoff but could potentially be several months or more. I currently run F5 U/L.
