I think I’m old

I am 47, used to be young dumb and full of cum. Now I’m beat up and fat. I think I am at a point where I can go one of two ways. I used to be able to grab myself by the bootstraps but I have very slowly faded away. I need a belief and a vision. I used to love to lift, not so much cardio...

Thought provoking questions regarding genetics

So I’ve been doing some thinking on genetics and pose a few questions. 1. 2 guys of the same frame, height and age (say 20yo) follow a perfect diet and routine fleshed out by a world class coach to a T. Rest/recovery is on point for both. Guy 1 ends up with a 46” chest, 17” arms, 26” quads and...

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...

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.

Chest soreness

Recently after my chest workouts I am really sore. I’m not sure if it’s an over 40 thing or I need to see a physician. None of my other muscle groups are this sore after training.
