Lifting after 40: maintain or progress?

Should lifters change their routine after 40, and adopt a more maintenance-oriented mindset, or keep trying to progress? I know they say heavy compound lifts in the 3-5 range is where it's at for keeping your testosterone levels high etc., but what about injury prevention, joint and vascular...

Bedtime Sugar Cravings

I don’t know why but right as I get sleepy and start dozing off, I get a sweet tooth surge. This has been happening regularly within recent months (nothing to do with C19). If I eat candy or something sweet during that time, it’s euphoric as sugar is. But I am a fitness junkie like many of you....

Glute Activation Journey...for funsies

I just had my first workout ever in which I was able to split squat 2x50 dumbbells, all the while my knee tracking perfectly, and not wavering. For me, this was huge. I started with a 95# squat and 315# deadlift. In hindsight, I can say that my deadlift was straight leg; after correcting...

So, I'm 47, a touch overweight, and was injured recently at work. As part of my physical therapy, I had to do some weight lifting. I didn't notice any change, but my wife did and started caressing my biceps. Who doesn't want to look good for the wife? So, I've developed a bit of an interest...

Powerlifter decides to cut.

I've posted on here occasionally. I mostly lifted for size and strength since 15 years of age. I competed in powerlifting meets, set a state record some years ago in bench press (WNPF) as a lifetime natural. I always wanted to get bigger and stronger, didn't care about 'looking lean'. I'm...
