Tendon, ligament under armpit...

I was shaving my under arms and noticed what feels like a tendon or ligament pop out when I raised my arm straight up in the air? If you put your arm straight up and lean it towards the back it comes straight down almost the center of the armpit. Only the right side not my left side. These no pain...

I've always been a runner / cyclist but got in to the gym a year ago aged 39. My goals were to strengthen my back and neck to protect myself and improve posture and to lose my skinny arms!

Scared to squat and deadlift

I hurt my back deadlifting last year. Recovered, and hurt it again a week later. Went to a trainer, and was told those exercises are for young people. Should I keep doing it? Should I get a trainer or post form videos? Thanks!

Natural Lifter asked if on gear

Does this happen to you - and if so, do you take offense to this? As far as I can tell, the signs of being on gear are shoulders that look capped and a larger neck. I am lacking in both departments.

Am I overdoing it? (number of sets)

Major body parts like chest, back, and legs I'm doing 12-13 sets, twice a week. For smaller parts I'm doing 9-10 sets twice a week. So far I have had great results. I've heard the two sides go back and forth between less sets, once per week, and a lot of sets, twice per week. Mind you, I'm 51 and...

Weight loss and Genetics

Hey guys as I get older I find there are two types of people. Some people that can lean more on training whereas others can lean more on dieting. You can’t out train a bad diet but some people can train harder or longer, whereas others don’t mind adhering to a stricter diet. Am I right?
