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,...

Higher volume training for us older dudes?

I've heard that as you get older, training with lighter intensity for more volume can be beneficial as it allows similar gains/hypertrophy but with less stress on your body? I'm 39 halfway to 40...after lifting since my 20s, I've got some kinks here and there like anyone. Thinking of adopting...

Post 2 years on: 6 months of boom, 6 of progress, 12 of stasis

Told my story before, but - in a nutshell: started 2 years ago as never-exercised-before skeleton-with-a-belly. 40 years old back then, 42 now. I am truly OCD when I get into something, so I consistently worked out 4 or 5 days per week since then, began eating as clean as it gets, and in the...

Using The Rack For Too Long

Is there a gym etiquette for using the rack for too long? Note that I am active and present the entire time I am using the rack. I don't use my phone, and spend 1 or 2 minutes at most resting between sets. My gym (Anytime Fitness) has two racks. I don't often see a line up, and there are some...

When happens when you stop weight training?

Hey guys, I'm 26yo and planning to start weight training in 3 months or so, however I'm somewhat worried what will happen when I'll stop (lets face it, this day will come). I was wondering, what happens if at 35 if I stop exercising altogether? Assume that body fat is fairly low, and there...

Cut/bulk protein intake

For those that do cut/bulk cycles, do you change the amount of protein you get in line with the calorie increase/decrease. Or do you change your carbs/fat intake? Or all 3? I have tended to keep my protein intake the same on both bulks and cuts and change carbs/fats. But wondering if it's the...

Racing my brother to pull 500

I posted today's top set on Facebook and ended up challenging my brother to race to 500. He's been lifting for years, is 6 ft tall, weighs 200 lbs, and is already at 475. But he's a hardgainer and uses himself as an example that even the scrawny kids can get jacked. I'm only at 455 and much...

Overtraining?

Hey guys. I'm currently 42 years of age and have been an avid weightlifter for most of my life. Not quite a bodybuilder, but I certainly lived the lifestyle at times until age and injuries began to take their toll. My arms have almost always been a lagging body part for me, stemming from...

which would be less taxing on the body

more frequent gym visits but less time there.. not doing too much etc.. less frequent visits but hitting it harder... more sets etc... Both will have the same intensity just instead of doing more sets its split out over more visits.

Mid-20th century myths & lies about weight training still common today

I was born in the 1960s. My dad was born in the 1940s and he believed all of the lies people used to tell about people who train with weights. When I started becoming interested in weight training he flipped his lid. He told me that "weightlifters" (his generic term for bodybuilders, weightlifters,...
