Arrow Sticky Thread Sticky: The Official Ov35 Bench Press Thread!

May as well throw this one out there so we have all 3 major lifts represented. :) Open to ideas as to how things should run but here's how I see it..... - must be Flat BB Bench only (using an OLY bar). No Incline Bench, Decline Bench or DBs. - Raw lifts only. No shirted benching. (wrist...

Gaining Fat and no Muscles

Dear experts, I am 35 years old male with body weight of 65kgs and height 175cm. My target is to gain some lean body mass. I have 17% body fat at the moment. I have a slim body profile but with an abnormally large belly, so I believe I am a skinny fat person. I follow Kris Gethin 12 week...

I run out of!

Greetings, everyone. Long time fan here. I'm 42, been working out most my life. I've been blessed with good genes. Good proportions, etc. Nothing exciting. I was (past tense) one of the stronger dudes in a small gym I joined. Classes taught by former bodybuilding competitors who placed...

59 year old Male looking for a new workout routine.

I'm 59 and have been working out with weights since I was 41. I'm 6'4" and about 230 pounds. I look pretty good, except for the bit of fat around my waist. I've quit drinking alcohol and have been trying to clean up my diet (I have sugar cravings that are almost overpowering) to shed the fat,...

I am a 45 yr old female that is overweight. I was working out for over a year and half with a trainer. Looked good. Felt good. And then I had to stop working with my trainer for about 6 months. I am going to be starting back with her, but its more weight lifting than anything. Some light...

Rotator Cuff workaround?

First time poster, just joined this morning. I'm 40, have been lifting for 20 years, first strained my RC about 12 years ago, and ever since it's been a cycle of resting > PT > regaining strength > reinjury. Which is very frustrating. I start every workout with a stretching regimen, followed by...

I keep hurting my shoulder

This is getting frustrating. After a positive 2017 (I finally got my first proper squats and saw real progress on the main lifts) I started with shoulder issues in Sept/Oct. I eventually took the last month off (eating badly and gaining weight, but that's another story with a simple fix). The...

Anyone had a nerve conduction test done?

Gotta have this done soon. I was operating on 2 hours sleep and probably went full potato, but I couldn't figure out how the test was actually done when I researched it. Looked like they out electrodes on your arm and then shock you with electricity when they touch a needle to your arm. Can...

So a year ago I started my fat loss program. I've been training for a good few years previous to that but my diet was terrible and I put on a lot of fat with any muscle i hopefully gained. So last January I decided to get my bodyfat down. I weighed 106.5kg (235lbs) at the start. Unsure of my...

Hi, I'm a relative newb at the gym and could stand some help fixing my routine. I've been at it for six months and making decent gains (Squat: 240, Bench: 190, Deadlift: 190, etc.) but I spend way too long at the gym each session, between 2 - 2.5 hours each time, especially on Thursday and Saturday...

grip / forearm failure point

MyFitnessPal numbers right?

I'm 48 and trying to lose weight. I'm 6'1 and 270 lbs. I don't look terribly fat because of all the years I worked out so most is in my gut. MyFitnessPal is reporting that I should be eating 1690 calories with 80g protein a day. I forget what the default ratio they picked. I do sit most of the day...

Hey HNY everyone, what are your thoughts on Stretching (Prior, during, after your workout...). Reason I ask is that I've always been under the impression that you shouldn't really stretch a cold muscle and should do some kind of warm up first. I was at the gym yesterday getting my New Years...

Getting to 10% BF at 44yo.... a bitch. Getting to 12.5% wasn't that bad. But the strictness of my diet and hitting my macros so I don't lose all my muscle gives me a new respect for guys (especially a bit older) who can get 10% and below. I'll get there, but it's a damn hard journey. ok, back to lifting.

Lift Popularity
