Annoying discomforts with working out

I’ve been lifting again for 5 months, and I’m 51. I research good form of all the exercises I do, and I’m definitely not overdoing it with the amount of weight I use. I have also lifted on and off over the years. The annoying part is that I now have some wrist, elbow, and now, shoulder...

Instagram guy - insane genetics???

I came across this guy on instagram and my first thought was wow, impressive physique but he probably has some help... He claims natural which doesn't mean much but he is coached by 3DMJ who are very well respected and they screen their clients and only work with naturals. They say he just has...

Older crew - Training chest and back together.

I'm taking a very small break from lifting, been going at it for 3 years with no breaks. Going to reset and start a new 4 day split. Was doing P/L/P for the last 6 months. I personally never tried to train chest/back together. It seems the way to go is to superset everything, but since I...

Training HARD and Eating

So here is another nauseating installment of "change your perspective", DISCLAIMER: you may hear about training hard here? It has been a never ending battle between out training bad nutrition and I'm not going there, all I'm going to say is I eat like a normal person i.e. one/two meals a day,...

Eating at mom and pop restaurants

I love to eat at local restaurants. However, you can’t get nutrition info for your tracking. MostLy I just try to log something I think is worse than what I ate. For example, if I ate 8 oz of fries, I would log 8pz of McDonald’s fries thinking that McDonald’s is about as bad as you can get. ...

All this talk of tendinitis

Haven’t had tendinitis issues for about nine months and then this week my left elbow flared up. At the tail end of my first bulk, so the timing sucks. Will probably have to take a week off from anything that irritates it. Sometimes getting old sucks. LOL

Another Loose Skin Question

Hi Everyone, I've found a lot of threads offering advice to folks who've successfully lost weight but ended up with more skin around the belly area than they need, but not a lot of follow-up from those individuals. So I'm starting a new "loose skin" thread. :) I'm 35, 5'10" and now weigh...

Bench Press

I weight 200 and bench 240. This is 1.20 my body weight and ranks in the 54% of all lifters. However, my body fat is 20%. If my body fat was 12% my bench would be 1.30 my body weight and rank 64%. So what is the right answer? Shouldn’t I remove the excess fat from the calculations? Where do I...

My company is building a gym onsite

Just venting… I’ve worked in Tech my entire career, 17 years for one company, contractor for a year at another, and now just started a new position.

Routine post injury

Hey all I am coming back from a 1.5 month lower back injury that I got doing deadlifts. Apparently the reason I injured myself is because a) I didn’t stretch or warm up before my weight training and b) my core is weak and my body overcompensated by giving my back more work to do. Luckily I’m...
