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,...

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...

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...

I’ve just turned 40. I’m 6’0” 312lbs. Probably 40% body fat. I have a gym membership and would love to see if anyone here has a routine that can help be gain muscle and burn fat. I’ve been pretty much sedentary for the last 10 months and have put on 70lbs. Also I’m trying to find a way to eat...

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...

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...

Cardio? Elliptical vs treadmill?

I'm 45. Right around 6'0 and 230. Have a very minor case of HCM (Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy) and high blood pressure and need to lose some weight. Been looking for treadmill for a few months and might grab one come Black Friday. Just started looking at Ellipticals and wondering if they're a...

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...

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...

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...

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.

I think I’m old

I am 47, used to be young dumb and full of cum. Now I’m beat up and fat. I think I am at a point where I can go one of two ways. I used to be able to grab myself by the bootstraps but I have very slowly faded away. I need a belief and a vision. I used to love to lift, not so much cardio...

Is it even worth it?

Sorry if this post comes across as a debbie downer. I'm 37 years old. I'm 6'5 220 lbs. A year ago I was 240 lbs. I wasn't happy with how I looked, so I joined a gym, hired a personal trainer, starting eating right, etc. I was lifting 5 times a week. I lost 35 lbs and got down to 205, I...

It's Time to Turn

I was scheduled for 2 shows spring of this year; both covicancelled of course. And I usually do a 3rd in September. But this year, when the April and May shows were cancelled in March, I decided to just go on bulk for the next 7 months instead of coming back down for September. I figured a slightly...

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...

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...

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...

Muscle building or strength training or both for thin person over 40 years old ?

Hi, I am in my 40s. Thin since young and did alot of cardio when I was young. Now I am underweight and super thin. At my age, I believe I have to focus more on strength and to bulk up as I read somewhere that it is dangerous to be thin and underweight as you grow older. Buy my question now is,...
