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...

Anyone else try TENS / EMS device?

I was at a conference today and stopped at a booth in the trade show part that was peddling what I was sure would be a scam. I had time to kill before my next class so I decided to let them try their junk on me. My left shoulder has been screwed up for 1.5 years, it’s much better than it was but...

Good Mornings - First time.

So I did some Good Mornings yesterday during my leg workout for the first time ever, and wow! I'm feeling it today, in a good way. I did 3 sets of 10 with only 25lb plates on each side of an Olympic bar, want to get form down first, but this weight was sufficient enough for the first time. What...

Starting 5x5 as an intermediate

Been lifting 4 years. Max squat is weak at 290/ bench at 265/ deadlift at 415. These are hard maxes with perhaps a minor flaw in perfect form. I cut in the past year from 215 ish at a high bf (25% or so) to 185 around 11 ish %. I am now having a hell of a time putting any weight back on whether it...

Smolov Bench Experiment

When I first started Powerlifting 3 years ago I was a one trick pony. I had a good Bench but had to learn to Squat and Deadlift. At my first meet I took a National record and later a World by my second meet for Bench Press. Every meet since, I’ve PR’d on either Squat and/or Deadlift, but Bench...

I like Resistance Bands (??)

I bought resistance bands and like them? In a weird way, they give a 'better/harder' workout than weights. I feel worked out after using these things. Am I crazy? First time using it this set: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B006O09M4K/ref=oh_aui_search_detailpage?ie=UTF8&psc=1

Improving Bench

I'm a noob lifter. I weigh 198 and I'm almost 40. I did a lot of body weight stuff over the years, and a lot of martial arts and jiu-jitsu, but never realized how important weight lifting was until about a year ago. I started with strong lifts 5x5 about August of last year. I followed that...

New split - enough frequency?

Frequency Advice

Here's my dilemma in a nutshell. I'm in my 50s. I'm trying to change my body and push things a bit rather than just maintain the shape I've been in. I'm in decent shape and moderately built but not at all sculpted. I want to try to get at least a bit sculpted. I've tried various schedules over...

Hitting your prime and regression

I am 35 and consider myself in decent shape but, like many people, wish that I had started my serious weight training earlier in life.

hi, I'm trying to lose weight. I am doing a combination of primarily kettlebell HIIT workouts, some kettlebell strength workouts, and a bit of long distance running. I am in an area where gyms are super expensive, so while I used to do compound weightlifting at the gym, I no longer do so, and...
