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,...

4 Months of Maintaining the same weight

First of all - hey everyone! It has been about 4 months since I have posted on here so thought it was time for an update and to let you know that I am still at it. Yes 4 months doesn't seem like a long time to maintain the same weight but I realized that the entire 3 1/2 years prior to this I...

Talking 45 year old semi-beginner

Hi, I've been lifting seriously ( well consistently at least ) for about a year and a half the more I read the more confused I am about my program. I wanted to share my progress and get people's thoughts. For the first year I was pretty much doing a squat, bench, deadlift and pullup workout 3...

8-Week Intensity/Volume Experiment

While recently listening to an older Pavel podcast, I heard him say how most of the time Russian lifters are using 1/3 to 2/3 of their max reps. So even if they could lift a particular weight 9 times, most of the time they're only lifting it 3-6 times. I almost always lift one set to near failure...

I’ve just turned 40. I’m 6’0” 312lbs. Probably 40% body fat. I have a gym membership and would love to see if anyone here has a routine that can help be gain muscle and burn fat. I’ve been pretty much sedentary for the last 10 months and have put on 70lbs. Also I’m trying to find a way to eat...

Anyone dealt with "runner's knee" or patellofemoral knee pain?

Both of my knees are now dealing with this, and there currently is no leg exercise I can do without pain once I start increasing the weight. I can do mild to moderate weight on leg extensions and incline leg presses, but once I go beyond, say, a 4 on a scale of 10, my knee pain begins. I've seen...

Cardio? Elliptical vs treadmill?

I'm 45. Right around 6'0 and 230. Have a very minor case of HCM (Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy) and high blood pressure and need to lose some weight. Been looking for treadmill for a few months and might grab one come Black Friday. Just started looking at Ellipticals and wondering if they're a...

Continue bulking?

6’2 182. Starting to get very jiggly/watery back handles. Was much leaner at 187 before Covid struck. Not sure what happened, most likely a loss of LBM. Just curious where I will end up if I try to add another 10-15 pounds over the next 6 months. BF estimate would also be appreciated.

Creatine in preworkout drink enough?

I've been using a preworkout drink (cellucor c4 sport) and it has micronized creatine in the blend but not exactly how much. The blend is 4.9 grams but there are 8 things included in that. Is this sufficient considering I'm taking it 5-6 days a week or should I consider additional creatine if I...

Feel pulling in testicles w/ KB swings ?

My first block today after warm up was a pyramid KB swing (5x50-10x45-15x40-20x35-25x30-20x35-15x40-10x45-5x50). About halfway through I began feeling a pulling in my left nut and decided to stop. First time I've ever felt anything other than muscle soreness w/ KB swings. Searches online didn't...

For those who got snipped - how long recovery?

I'm taking the bullets out of the gun late next month. I'm assuming a full week off with no major activity whatsoever is key. It will be a month out from a GORUCK endurance event I have planned though - think carrying backpacks over long distances, CrossFit-style workouts, and carrying heavy...

We all read especially for "natural" lifters that frequency is key for gaining muscle. We can read training advice online or in magazines until we are blue in the face, but what it really comes down to is what works for you. Frequency was not working for me. I was on a push/pull/legs routine...

Frustrated with fat loss.. keep gaining weight .. 275lbs (pic included)

40yo male. So according to 275x14-500 (weight loss) I should be able to consume 3350 calories a day and lose weight. I've been exercising regularly for 3 years with a split of full body compound lifting and cardio. I don't track my calories and I definitely like to have drinks with my...

Goodbye 747s

747s have flown a lot of miles since the launch in 1969, but they are being phased out slowly by airlines (mostly since twin engine planes for so much better and longer range and are cheaper to operate) The final 2 operated by British Airways are both in the air on their final flights as I type.

Hello again. Just starting back.

It's pretty much been 8yrs. since I trained with any consistency, starting back at 44 now. Last couple years I've been eating like crap, lots of fast food and beer. Finally got tired of feeling tired every day and hungover pretty much every Saturday. Started cleaning up my diet bigtime and...

Is it even worth it?

Sorry if this post comes across as a debbie downer. I'm 37 years old. I'm 6'5 220 lbs. A year ago I was 240 lbs. I wasn't happy with how I looked, so I joined a gym, hired a personal trainer, starting eating right, etc. I was lifting 5 times a week. I lost 35 lbs and got down to 205, I...

I've decided as a 50th birthday present to myself to get a little more serious about health overall, and to finally compete in powerlifting which I've wanted to do my whole life. I'm 49, turning 50 next year. I have always eaten fairly poorly - high fat/red meat, ice cream etc... gotten away...

Lost 100lbs - is this loose skin or fat?

I had been obese till 26, when I finally got my act together and started losing weight through exclusively cardio and diet. Fast forward nine years later, and I’m 143 pounds with a BMI of 20.6 (down from 34.7). Unfortunately, my stomach and manboobs aren’t quite where I want them to be. I took...
