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 Re-bounding after a stroke, need a specific plan

Had a stroke a few years ago...not outwardly noticeable like many are. Affected my sight, anxiety toleration, dizziness and short term memory. Most has gotten better, but have a really hard time holding a job. Disability is out of the question. I don't have endurance to "make it through an eight...

Unhappy Limited by heart rate, breath

I am getting to a point where I can't overload anymore not because of the weight itself, but my heart rate instead. Allow me to clarify: on any giving exercise, I feel I could increase the load by a good 10% or more. I feel my muscle can stand another 4 or more reps, but my heart is racing and...

Why not compete in Powerlifting if you’re are Over 35

I haven’t posted in a long time so excuse the long post, this has been on my mind for a while. I’m not the type of guy who tries to convince everyone to do what I do because everyone has their own perspective on fitness and participation. I didn’t play ANY sports of any kind growing up so I had no...

Senior Life long Lifters; Tell us about the old days

Tell me about Hoffman's Gain Weight and wtf was dessicated liver for. Were squats, pullovers and milk really giving people chests like Grimek? Did the Keys to Progress help you throw on slabs of muscle? Regale us of tales from when you were younger and weaker.

Minimum time for hypertrophy cycle

What is the minimal time a hypertrophy cycle could be useful? I may come across as Naive here, but I dont know anything about bodybuilding at all. If you dont read my journal my chosen path for fitness is mostly "weightlifting": "Clean and Jerk", and the "Snatch", with some conditioning... I...

Pinch in trap or upper scap

Like overhead press or putting the bar back in a bar rack after bent over rows or even washing my kitchen counter. Today with a trainer I did overhead press...

After I took my “glamour shot” pics last weekend I couldn’t wait to dig out my pics from high school. Took a while to find them but I did and this is so cool! I also have my weight and measurements from then so I included a comparison of the numbers also. This was early in my senior year of...

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...

Over-training/over-reaching

Safety Squat Bar - Who Uses One?

I got one a few days ago and absolutely love it. No more shoulder pain! One thing I've noticed is that I actually squat a little deeper than when I did back squats. Maybe it's because there's no shoulder pain and I'm able to concentrate 100% on my legs? I don't know. After much research, I...

Funny re: losing weight as an "old"

I just think this is hilarious and am wondering if it's happened to other people. Intentionally losing fat in your 20s or 30s: "OMG YOU LOOK FANTASTIC!! Wow! How did you do it?" Intentionally losing fat in your 40s+: In a discreet whisper "are you ok? Oh, good! I was worried you might be...
