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,...

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...

It's official I'm 50. I'm happy where I'm at fitness wise but need some fine tuning and there's always room for improvements. The first is to slow down on the beer intake, it's just time to get that under control. And starting a brand new split next week which will be: Day 1 Chest/Shoulders...

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...

Anyone dealt with "runner's knee" or patellofemoral knee pain?

Both of my knees are now dealing with this, and there currently is no leg exercise I can do without pain once I start increasing the weight. I can do mild to moderate weight on leg extensions and incline leg presses, but once I go beyond, say, a 4 on a scale of 10, my knee pain begins. I've seen...

Old Newbie Here!

Open to any and all help. I will try to keep this brief but good luck, Tom... Next week I am 72. I have been lifting/running most of my adult life. I just had a knee operation and am now ok to start running again. It's been a long time. Though I have lifted all my life, my routines became very...

Progress stalling after 3-4 months

Hi guys, I've been working out quite intensely for the past 3-4 months after a long break. My goal is to build muscle, I'm on a beginner program, 2 days on, 1 day off, which has about 10 heavy sets for each muscle per week. The first 2-3 months I progressed rapidly, adding weight in every...

General advice - working around an injury? (or not)

Hi, apologies if this isn’t the best place to post but it crosses a few categories so thought I’d start here since I’m 42 and that’s probably contributed to my aches and pains! I started lifting weights at home maybe 5 months ago to complement running and thai boxing, but before long I’d ditched...

Severe DOMS in my quads

I've been getting severe DOMS in my quads after I do legs, hike, or play tennis. This has been going on since June when we could leave the house, and I have to take lower body rest days. This affects me as I prefer 6 days a week of working out. It was OK until I injured my arm stand-up...

programming running and lifting

Im kinda at a loss here. Part of the reason is that I have ADD and can't stick to any program I decide on but I also don't know which program I should stick with. Totally novice lifter. Started lifting 5-6 years ago but was training for 100k and the time of getting to a gym while training for...

4 Month Transformation: from bulked to cut (pics)

I have been training for 22 years, mostly on a permanent bulk due to being naturally skinny. I have gotten up to 180-200 lbs, and competed in powerlifting meets as a 181. This past year I decided it was time to stop being fat; the permanent bulk has come to an end. I am attaching some...

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...

Pretty excited about the last few workouts. I started back the beginning of Oct.. Started my new workout tracking Oct. 5th I believe. Was going to wait and take some pics, still will in a few weeks or so. I had a rain day, no work today and was really debating on a workout since I just did...

Truth about estradiol?

Truth about estradiol? Hi all, I’m a 33 yo healthy and active male. I have a rather active lifestyle lifting weights and training kickboxing regularly. Rather, decent muscle mass, low body fat percentage. Recently, I observed a bit lower libido than I’m used to and some difficulties sleeping....

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...

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...

Pain in brachioradialis

Kept trying to figure out what this is online and everything was about tennis and golfers elbow, totally different locations than what I'm getting. It doesn't feel like distal bicep tendon either. Feels like pain all along brachioradialis when I pull up, row, bench, squat. It hurts most when...

Row machines

Like a lot of people I've been adding to the home gym. I've just picked up an elliptical (ProForm Hybrid Trainer) and they also have a row machine that is in stock. I've never used a row machine, is there any benefit to it out side of aerobics? Can you use them for tricep pulls and the like? I...
