179 lbs, my heaviest weight in over 2 years!

I was 179 lbs this morning with a weekly average of 177 lbs both of which are the heaviest in over two years. I am done with my winter gaining phase but instead of cutting to mid 160’s for summer like I did the last two years I may just maintain below 180 moving forward. When I started this...

6th month of “minimum”...I dunno guys

So, I’m into my 6th month of doing a “minimum“ workout that takes me 30 minutes, 3 days a week...so 1 1/2 hours a week total. I’ve totally stopped monitoring diet. I generally eat healthier than most, but there’s been plenty of junk too. I just eat whatever when I’m hungry until I’m satisfied. ...

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...

Advice for recovery from work

I am a custodian for a school, now with this whole covid thing, I have been doing all types of physically intense jobs, I come home almost daily, and I can hardly lift my arms. It is a job, not like working out at a gym where I can let my muscle recover for 24 - 48 hrs. No, I have to be back at...

Arms Falling Asleep Pt. 2

So I wrote in a few weeks ago that my arms were falling asleep at night and when at rest for long period of time. I got off my PWO for weeks now, 27th of May to be exact.

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....

Body Composition Scales - drop in muscle, up in fat?!?

Hi, I’m looking for some advice please. I’ve always been strong and sporty (I’m short and put muscle on easy) and been doing a lot of powerlifting. With lockdown, I’ve changed focus (no gym access). I’ve been eating healthy, working out, using Fitness Pal on a calorie deficit and biking...

Can anyone recommend a weight trianing program for someone with bad knee and elblow?

I have tendonitis in both my right knee and right elbow. Both have been this way for years, it's not real bad, I can more or less work around it until (or if) they both heal. Can anyone recommend me a good training program with such injuries? Could I do Fierce Five and simply make substitutes?...

Deadlift PR

I had form issues in the past that I have been working on vigilantly. My hips always came up way early and my lift would start with my shoulders almost below my hips (think stiff legged deadlift). Although still not perfect it has allowed me to progress and be more comfortable. Well tonight dead’s...

Deloading Properly

I've hit the wall on the barbell row (70kg) and the overhead press (52.5kg) and I can't seem to push past these amounts no matter how many times I deload. Am I doing it wrong? Once I fail to hit 5x3 in a session I'll take 10kg off for the next session and slowly build up by adding 2.5kg each...

Getting started again after a long hiatus

So I've made it back to the forums after a 3-4-year hiatus. When I turned 30 in 2012, I weighed 255 lbs / 116 kg. I started cardio training (mostly running) and lost almost 100 lbs (about 45 kg) before going to the gym and peaking at about 180 lbs / 82 kg and becoming very lean & ripped. I...

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...
