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,...

UK gyms reopen maybe July?

No date but rumour is gyms in UK reopen July if all is well. The uk's trade association for gyms ukactive has guidance which is fairly vague https://www.ukactive.com/covid-19 but does have specific things such as workout towels banned, 3m squared per person and obvious things about cleaning....

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...

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,...

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...

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...

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...

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.

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...

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.

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...

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...

Pain in brachioradialis
