Training back and chest together.

So I finally did it, trained chest and back together, it's great! I always heard that it would be to much, especially for us older folks, but not the case at all. I stuck to 3 exercises per body part. I changed my PPL now to: Day 1 Chest and back Day 2 Legs Day 3 Shoulders and arms. I...

So, I’m into my 6th month of doing a “minimum“ workout that takes me 30 minutes, 3 days a 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. ...

Do I sink $700 on home gym equipment, or wait?

As you probably know all gyms in the UK have been forced to close. I'm sure it's the same everywhere else too. I've been looking at gym equipment online. For a barbell, 90kg weights, bench and rack I'm looking at around £600 (approx $700). That's not "commercial grade" equipment but I'm guessing...

All this recent talk about Maintaining - Physique Update

Several of us have recently talked about being in maintenance mode and even more so now with the COVID-19 shutting gym's down. I started lifting seriously at 49 years-old to get in shape and the first year was mostly about weight loss. The 2nd and 3rd year I was focused on building muscle and...

Drinking Corona and Heavy Deads.......

I went to my gym today and the owner/operator had Coronas stocked in the fridge to parody this silly hysteria. This is why I love my gym! So, I dead lifted 200kg x 1 (nice hard pull) and drank a Corona.

Mini cut, or bulk for another year?

I started my journey just over 18 months ago. I spent 9 months cutting from 210 pounds to 160 pounds. I've then spent the last 9 months bulking and have reached 180 pounds today. My aim was to gain 1 pound per month, but in reality I either gained nothing each month, or just over 2 pounds. As...

how bad does my injury sound?

A couple of days ago, I heard a pop in my chest area near my armpit while performing the bench press. 3 days later, I decide to test it with moderate weight.

Growing calves - what's your sweet spot?
