Post 2 years on: 6 months of boom, 6 of progress, 12 of stasis

Told my story before, but - in a nutshell: started 2 years ago as never-exercised-before skeleton-with-a-belly. 40 years old back then, 42 now. I am truly OCD when I get into something, so I consistently worked out 4 or 5 days per week since then, began eating as clean as it gets, and in the...

47 years old and want to start Fierce 5 but have concerns

I've been wanting to change my workout routine and the Fierce 5 looks good. However, at 47, I have some injuries that never healed well which leaves me feeling very uncomfortable with some exercises.

51 today! 9 years under the rack!

I’m 51 today and I’ve been back in the gym for 9 years now. This is officially 1 year longer than I lifted in my teens and twenties so long ago...with no end in sight. On my birthday I like to reflect on what I learned over the last year (about lifting and my body), and I feel this year was...

Being athletic or just having the outer shell for looks?

This observation I guess continues from a young age to an older guy. That one guy who looks amazing, but has not one athletic ability in his bone. I grew up playing sports, doing stuff, surfing, skimboarding, skateboarding, etc. Tossing the pig iron was always there but not a priority or an...

Blast from my past (lost pics)...

I don’t know, but I absolutely love it when people post pictures from when they were younger, or before and after pictures, or progress shots, or just pictures in general. In any case, I have very few pictures from “back in the day”, and even less that have anything to do with bodybuilding...so...

Bulking & Cutting in your 50's: Perspectives Wanted

Hello all - I am believer in bulking and cutting, but wondering about it's value for the advanced over 50 natural lifter.

Cut/bulk protein intake

For those that do cut/bulk cycles, do you change the amount of protein you get in line with the calorie increase/decrease. Or do you change your carbs/fat intake? Or all 3? I have tended to keep my protein intake the same on both bulks and cuts and change carbs/fats. But wondering if it's the...
