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 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...

Frequency

We all read especially for "natural" lifters that frequency is key for gaining muscle. We can read training advice online or in magazines until we are blue in the face, but what it really comes down to is what works for you. Frequency was not working for me. I was on a push/pull/legs routine...

Angry Thoughts and Prayers for me Brahs (Lower Back)

So I've been hitting the weights hard since '88 and have had many, many great years in the gym with some breaks here and there for medical issues. But over the past 5 years I've encountered an increasing frequency of injuries to my lower back, despite a massive increase in pre-workout stretching...

Lost 100lbs - is this loose skin or fat?

I had been obese till 26, when I finally got my act together and started losing weight through exclusively cardio and diet. Fast forward nine years later, and I’m 143 pounds with a BMI of 20.6 (down from 34.7). Unfortunately, my stomach and manboobs aren’t quite where I want them to be. I took...

Creatine in preworkout drink enough?

I've been using a preworkout drink (cellucor c4 sport) and it has micronized creatine in the blend but not exactly how much. The blend is 4.9 grams but there are 8 things included in that. Is this sufficient considering I'm taking it 5-6 days a week or should I consider additional creatine if I...

Goodbye 747s

747s have flown a lot of miles since the launch in 1969, but they are being phased out slowly by airlines (mostly since twin engine planes for so much better and longer range and are cheaper to operate) The final 2 operated by British Airways are both in the air on their final flights as I type.

8-Week Intensity/Volume Experiment

While recently listening to an older Pavel podcast, I heard him say how most of the time Russian lifters are using 1/3 to 2/3 of their max reps. So even if they could lift a particular weight 9 times, most of the time they're only lifting it 3-6 times. I almost always lift one set to near failure...

Just getting started!

I've decided as a 50th birthday present to myself to get a little more serious about health overall, and to finally compete in powerlifting which I've wanted to do my whole life. I'm 49, turning 50 next year. I have always eaten fairly poorly - high fat/red meat, ice cream etc... gotten away...

Persistent ache from above (maybe inside) left armpit

Alright so this one is kinda odd for me since I don't really have persistent pains or aches. If I pull something, I know I pulled it, and I usually rest it, but this feels like muscle building pain or lactic acid build up but has been steady for the past week maybe two? I don't recall the pain...

Lat issues

I took a video after a friend told me something looked off in my back. I may have mentioned this before but I was told it looks like I am not engaging my lats at all during a pull down. I am focusing on the contraction as hard as I can do I don’t see how it’s possible not to use lats. Need some...

Best workout program for a 28 year old who hasn't ever seen good results?

I've been lifting on and off since I was 18 years old.. without ever having any good results. I think my downfall is choosing a good program and sticking with it.. I've always kind of made my own programs and I think I've worked my upper body too much. I'm going to go ahead and start off...
