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,...

8-Week Intensity/Volume Experiment

While recently listening to an older Pavel podcast, I heard him say how most of the time Russian lifters are using 1/3 to 2/3 of their max reps. So even if they could lift a particular weight 9 times, most of the time they're only lifting it 3-6 times. I almost always lift one set to near failure...

The Dumbell vs Barbell debate

I was at the gym and a trainer made a comment that I should stop doing dumbbells and focus on heavy barbell instead. Now if I was training as a power lifter I might agree. When I questioned him on it he literally said " I train the CEO of Nike, I made a quater million dollars last year, when I give...

Talking 45 year old semi-beginner

Hi, I've been lifting seriously ( well consistently at least ) for about a year and a half the more I read the more confused I am about my program. I wanted to share my progress and get people's thoughts. For the first year I was pretty much doing a squat, bench, deadlift and pullup workout 3...

Hi, I am in my 40s. Thin since young and did alot of cardio when I was young. Now I am underweight and super thin. At my age, I believe I have to focus more on strength and to bulk up as I read somewhere that it is dangerous to be thin and underweight as you grow older. Buy my question now is,...

Quad sweep

Extensions with toes pointing in, walking lunges with weight, high rep squats. Nothing seems to bring out that sweep. My upper legs are severely lacking. Hopefully this can’t be a genetic factor? 18.5” femur for the win lol. Any tips on getting the outers to come in would be greatly appreciated.

4 Months of Maintaining the same weight

First of all - hey everyone! It has been about 4 months since I have posted on here so thought it was time for an update and to let you know that I am still at it. Yes 4 months doesn't seem like a long time to maintain the same weight but I realized that the entire 3 1/2 years prior to this I...

For those who got snipped - how long recovery?

I'm taking the bullets out of the gun late next month. I'm assuming a full week off with no major activity whatsoever is key. It will be a month out from a GORUCK endurance event I have planned though - think carrying backpacks over long distances, CrossFit-style workouts, and carrying heavy...

Feel pulling in testicles w/ KB swings ?

My first block today after warm up was a pyramid KB swing (5x50-10x45-15x40-20x35-25x30-20x35-15x40-10x45-5x50). About halfway through I began feeling a pulling in my left nut and decided to stop. First time I've ever felt anything other than muscle soreness w/ KB swings. Searches online didn't...

Start Bulking Or Maintain?

I'm not sure if I should start bulking now or eat at maintenance for a couple months to see how things go. I'm 42m, 5'10, 147lbs as of the scale this morning, still a little fat in the stomach and only can see some of the upper part of my abs. In April I was 170lbs and was a skinny fat ectomorph....

The Bench Press

Last set for 185lbs x 6. The barbell bench press gets a back rap today in the fitness world, in fact most workout advice in today's world is horrible. You need to really shift through the sands to find some sound advice. Or to make it easier just only read about old school bodybuilding. I’m...

Sets between meetings

Are long periods between sets bad? I have been working from home and brought out my old bench. I have been wondering if my method is hurting my gains. I will go do a set of bench press and then take a meeting for maybe an hour and then do a set of incline. If it is bad for gains why? Because I am...

DOMS for Lats

I was curious if anyone has been able to isolate their Lats enough to have ever been sore? Seems like no matter how hard I think I am thrashing my Lats, I never get that good ole recognition that I slaughtered 'em, i.e. DOMS. I ask, because I have targeted them for destruction and am having trouble...

To bulk/maintain or continue cutting

I've been training since 2011, made good gains over the years but in 2019 I was out of the gym for the most part. During this time I lost a lot of muscle and strength and gained a lot of fat.

Trouble losing weight

Quick summary: I just started testosterone therapy and I seem to be gaining weight but my caloric intake is less than 1500 per day. Long story: I was 310 and worked out with a trainer for a year. I got down to 250 but nowhere close to my goal. I suspected my hormones were off but my doctor...

Back: thickness or width?

I recently began focusing on back. Not sure which aspect of my back should be improved upon at this point. Should I focus on thickness or width? I sumo deadlift, seal Row, and do weighted chins, each on different days. Squats and deadlifts have a lot of spinal loading, thus the Seal row. Doing a...
