Advice on what to do to get shredded

I am 40 and have been alternating between push ups and pull ups for about 6 months. Should I continue to try to gain mass or should I lose weight at this point?

Any speed athletes here? Working on sprints, energy, nutrition.

I might be a bit out of place here as I am not too concerned about "getting my gains" regarding size, no competitions to go to, or any women to impress. But I am getting back to work with primary goals of gaining strength, protection from injury, and seeing how far I am still push my speed. I was...

Any Vegans Out There?

Hi Guys, I hope everyone is doing well. I recently have been diagnosed with hypertension, BPH (enlarged prostate) and high cholesterol (I guess from all the low carb dieting I did in the last 15 years). I am in my mid 50's. I have always weight trained in the last 15 or so years, sometimes...

Bicep question

Why do my biceps only ever get sore where the muscle attaches in the front of my arm where my elbow bends? Other muscle groups get sore in the entire muscle, but I’ve never had the peak of my bicep sore or the upper bicep sore. Any thoughts?

Chest Muscle Void

Hey all! When I flex my chest I have a small area in the middle of both pecs on the outer edge that's not filled in if that makes sense. How can I try to fill this in? Or is it just normal. Try flexing and see if you guys have the same thing. You can kind of see it on my progress photos.

I was planning to get my son started with a gym membership for his 14th birthday, but my wife says he's too young. Also, he is a competitive swimmer, and his coaches are telling him to hold off until...

Deadlift tips

A bit of a newbie, I'm 42 and lifted regularly before the kids came around and just started back in the gym 5 months ago. I never did deadlifts in my younger days but as my focus now is more on strength, I changed my routine to include deadlifts. I currently get to the gym 3 days a week and do...

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...

How much cardio is too much?

Hi! I am 53. My entire life I've been the square, strong shape rather than the slim, endurance type. Cardio has been something I've suffered through. At last I've found a workaround, that means I enjoy cardio. I look forwards to cardio in the gym and incorporate it more. But... so far in my...
