Merry Christmas!

My gift to me was to wake up and bench for that 225. But 215 felt like moving a mountain so I stopped there, that's okay, that's a 10 pound improvement but it wasn't pretty.

Anyone dealt with "runner's knee" or patellofemoral knee pain?

Both of my knees are now dealing with this, and there currently is no leg exercise I can do without pain once I start increasing the weight. I can do mild to moderate weight on leg extensions and incline leg presses, but once I go beyond, say, a 4 on a scale of 10, my knee pain begins. I've seen...

39 and just getting started

I am wondering specifically about competitions and progressing for Men's Physique. Is there a path to national and beyond through masters classes? What I seem to be finding is that to move from local to national and beyond you need to compete in an open class at a qualifier. Is that the case? I...

I'm not sure what to do

I am 5'7 and the first picture is 130 pounds, and the second is 165. I'm 37 (I don't know why my profile says 50). My "after" photo looks worse than a lot of guys' before photos. I don't have a true before photo. I use to be 125 pounds and looked horrible. I've been dedicated to lifting regularly,...

Spine pain while squatting

I've been sitting on my ass for a while now thanks to working from home, and just got back into lifting again. I've been progressing rapidly everywhere except my squats.

Abs cramping when doing direct ab work.

IDK what in Hades is going on but my abs cramp when I'm doing direct ab work. It's like a Charley Horse that will not let go and I have to stop after only a few sets. Doesn't matter if it's crunches or oblique work. Any idea what could be causing this?
