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,...

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...

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?

Any other UKcels struggling with lockdown?

Gyms have been shut here in the UK since 4th Jan (almost 2 weeks). During the first lockdown I was OK. I was determined not to lose what I'd worked hard to gain and got creative, doing pull ups, weighted push ups, flipping tyres in a field, etc. This time around though, I can barely find the...

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...

Finally gaining

Ate at 3500 cals for well over a month to gauge maintenance. I wasn’t gaining nor was I losing. So I bumped up to 4000 a little over a month ago and have put on 5 pounds. Started at 183ish now sitting at 188-189. Lost some definition but there has to be some muscle gain involved. Current pics...

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...

I'm 33

I hope this is the right section. It's the closest I could find. Here's my story: I used to be very fit, but I was training for fitness, not for any specific goal such as size, strength etc. It was all functional and I was very functional. For ten years I haven't done anything. In the...

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,...

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. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JJxr2l66pcw
