Arms - 50

Hi all I just turned 50, I have been between jobs over the past two months and missed the gym, did my head in. I lost a hell of a lot of size particularly on my arms. However before that I noticed my arms were not growing and they are not as big as they were a year or so ago. Not sure what going...

I've actually made some gains! but for what at this age?

I made a post way back in 2005, complaining a bit and probably asking for advice. Everything in that post has remained true for the following 15 years up until the past few months. But somehow I've finally made gains. At 47 years old, I've finally made a real and noticeable gain. One of the replies...

Sets per week graphs, current goals, bla bla bla

Just thought I would share some current goals and data as some might find the charts interesting. I am currently lifting only two days per week while I spend time on another hobby (archery).  I used to hunt and shoot my bow in a few target leagues but that was 25 years ago.  I did not miss...

Hammer Strength: Who Uses Them?

I typically workout at home, but I do accompany my wife to her gym as a guest on occasion (PF) where I use either an incline bench or seated OHP on one of the Smith machines. She's been a member for over 18 months, and until tonight, I've simply ignored the Hammer Strength machines. Tonight I gave...

Who's got big without EVER getting fat?

I don't want to hear from 185lb children, you are not big, no one outside of the lifting community even notices your physique at all ;) But has anyone got really big, as in look big in clothes, probably 250+lb presuming 6' tall, without getting a bit chubby on the way? Basically what I'm...

Ten Weeks Post Hernia Op

On August 15th I went in to have my 20-year-old hernia repaired. I had been putting it off for so long thinking it wasn't that big a deal. I had even consulted with a surgeon about 10 years ago who told me that as long as it's not bothering me physically or emotionally, I didn't really need to get...

Behind the Neck Shoulder Press

Behind the neck press was a stable shoulder exercise of the old school bodybuilders. Today it’s deemed dangerous and nearly nonexistent in today’s world of bodybuilding. And is altogether banned from various gyms and sports workouts. Again prime example of the movement not being the problem, but...

Racing my brother to pull 500

I posted today's top set on Facebook and ended up challenging my brother to race to 500. He's been lifting for years, is 6 ft tall, weighs 200 lbs, and is already at 475. But he's a hardgainer and uses himself as an example that even the scrawny kids can get jacked. I'm only at 455 and much...

Education of a Bodybuilder

This was Arnold’s book at the beginning he stated that he and his partner would do 20 rep squats in an I go, you go fashion. That and the fact that he worked up to a 700lb dead is how he got to 250lb and eating. Nuff said, it’s that easy. But still hard work.

A "relaxed" training regime at home

Some years ago I had a quite exstensive workout regime and trained for 2 full years, white reasonable success. However these days I don't have the motivation to train like that, moreover the eating regime, with meals every 3 or 4 hours, dont suit my lifestyle. But I want to start up again,...

Shoulder pain and health

I started having some pretty significant pain in my left shoulder about a week or so ago. Hurts when I lift my arm overhead, put it behind my back, raise it in front of me. Unfortunately, I don't really know if I slept funny (with my arm overhead) or I strained it benching or something. The...

The Vacuum

My attempt at the vacuum. These are not as easy as they look, it will take much practice and losing BF will help as well, but that can until winter is over. I'm going for that old school look for next spring/summer. I did the vacuum for like 4 minutes last night and definitely feel it in...

Why I Workout At Home

I will be 52 years-old in a few weeks and the endorphins/testosterone or whatever released during lifting along with the music blaring in my headphones makes me feel like a teenager!

Chia Seeds

I recently heard about a plant called Chia. I think it is interesting to everyone. From what I've read this is really great plant with wonderful features.
