Arrow Sticky Thread Sticky: The Official Ov35 Bench Press Thread!

May as well throw this one out there so we have all 3 major lifts represented. :) Open to ideas as to how things should run but here's how I see it..... - must be Flat BB Bench only (using an OLY bar). No Incline Bench, Decline Bench or DBs. - Raw lifts only. No shirted benching. (wrist...

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,...

What does it mean if your low back feels sensitive after rack pulls?

I do rack pulls about 3 inches below the knee and about 80 lbs heavier than my deadlift (started about the same but worked up quickly; I guess the movement is slightly different). When I'm done, my low back is sensitive. It doesn't hurt, but if I do any other compounds that stress the full...

Lifting with rheumatoid arthritis or arthritis in general?

Rheumatoid arthritis runs in my family, and most of us get it in our early 20s. I am not quite 35 yet, but figured I would make the topic here as arthritis is usually a condition associated with older people. I noticed about a year ago that my joints would be throbbing when I woke up in the...

35 And Ready to Rock

Hey gang. I just turned 35 a week ago, so I guess I belong in this thread... far far away from the young studs. :) I'm trying to get back into shape and I'd like to solicit some advice from some folks who are similar (physically) to me. I'm 6'2" 225 lbs. I don't really care what I weigh, but I...

Cocoa powder

My friend was telling me about Cocoa powder and the benefits of taking it. I read up on it and was interested in reading that, in addition to antioxidant properties and it's effect on blood pressure, it is a food source that can raise HDL. So I put 4 tbsp in my oatmeal this morning of...

Better to do more volume on the same exercise, or diversify?

I used to do 3 sets each of hanging leg raises and standing ab wheel per week. Now I just do the standing ab wheel. Progress was very slow before, but now I'm more stable, go further down and for more reps too. And I only made this change 3 months ago. I've experienced the same thing on my bench...

How does your look change as you get older?

With the general population I see a huge decline in aesthetics, since bodyfat levels begin to run away, and muscle mass was never built to begin with. Thankfully we don't have nearly as much of an issue with those major aesthetic factors. But age affects everyone. I imagine BBers will still see...

When To Deload

I've been seeing a lot of 'When should I deload, bro?' threads lately. Hope this will help. The answer is depends. Ehr-body is different. As a rule of thumb I provide my lifters, ride the train til it almost stops. You don't want the train to fully stop on the way to Snap City, but you...

Weight training on Levaquin

As fate would have it, I encountered my second sinus infection this year. I usually get one around February and October. The only difference now is I am allergic to penicillin, so was prescribed Levaquin. Now, I've heard the horror stories about Levaquin and tendon/joint issues, so I was...

Bulking question

I am currently bulking but apart from my belly and waist I look really lean in areas with good muscle development. So was wondering if I built more muscle in the abdomen/waist area would I get the same look there as I do in the other areas with good muscle growth ? I don't do any ab work but I...

What are the signs of slow recovery?

I see this being posted often as an issue with aging. How can you guys tell if you haven't recovered enough? Do you feel beat up the next day, or do you have to go to the gym to realize you're not at 100%?

Diagnosed with arthritis, so I went vegan...

What's up all, So, I have been living with a base level of pain for years that I just chalked up to being a symptom of my (old) line of work.

Has anyone else here gotten too big over time?

I'm a newbie here because I've never thought of asking anyone advice on health/lifting. I'm 50 years old and have been lifting seriously (5+ days a week) since I was 16. Despite being natty, 34 years of lifting, protein and creatine has added up and, now, I weight 290 lbs at 6'2". I have...

Question Where's the best place to learn proper form for DLs & squats?

Hi, I'm a 49yo female, 119 lbs, lifting for about a year but have gotten more serious in the last month. I've never had serious back problems other than occasional muscle soreness and tightness relieved by heat, massage, NSAIDS, etc. So many older folks have back issues, especially with...

What happeed to 4X10?

When I first started working out, back in the early 90's, everything was 4X10. When I lifted in the mid 2000s it was 4X10 or pyramid (reps down-weight up, 1X12@100...1X2@200) Now it seems most people are doing sets of 5. Did the science change? Or just the mindset?
