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,...

Who else broke social distancing rules over the weekend?

Nothing major, but we had a small party with a few friends we hadn't seen since pre-Covid. No masks, no distancing. Needed a break from this chit. Will go back to keeping our distance for a couple more weeks, but it's getting close to enough of this.

Seeking General Information

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...

Growing calves - what's your sweet spot?

The most stubborn body part for me to even show some growth has always been the calfs. I have slow twitch muscles and discovered high reps do nothing for me. I used to be a long distance runner and played lots of basketball growing up, always had skinny legs and calfs. I have found...

Need a change!

Hi all, So I’m looking to make a change for the long term now. I’m going to be a dad in July so I’m thinking a lot more now about how I want to be around for much longer, not have my family worry about any health issues I could have prevented further down the line and overall just have better...

What do you eat ?

Hi, guys Let's share your way of eating, before the gym and after. Do you count calories every day? planning your daily menu in advance? I think physical activity is in the first place, but competently building a diet during classes in the gym accelerates the achievement of goals faster.

Leg muscle exercises

Hi, guys during many years I work on my legs. Thick, deeply traced biceps of the hips give a spectacular bend to the thigh of any bodybuilder, but only a few can boast of their peak in a reduced state, similar to the biceps of the arms. Share my favorite workout with Anthony Lavigne - Total Leg...

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....

Building muscle with no gym access?

Arm pain

So I have tightness in the outer part of my left forearm. If I hold my arm straight out, palm down, the tightness is on the top of my forearm. The pain also seems to be present in my bicep to some extent. I wake up in the middle of the night finding my left hand somewhat numb. I've ceased...

It is better to warm up without training than training without warm-up

In my first gym, a poster written cheerful: “It is better to warm up without training than training without warm-up!” But, unfortunately, I began to understand this phrase far from immediately. And I am very sorry that you will not find such posters in a modern fitness club. Most people who come to...

A couple skip-rope vids I made....

I like to skip rope at least a couple times a week for 20 minute sessions. Good cardio and way less boring than regular running. This is one is with a speed rope PLzBzhXeN_s And then this one is with a heavier rope, which makes things are lot tougher and fatiguing. loQ00hY-yj0
