Diaphragm bulge

Hi, I'm 40 years old. I've been doing sports for 2 years. My diaphragm area is often bulging. Sometimes it's bigger than my chest. Sometimes it's getting normal, sometimes it's swelling. Especially during the exercise it is very swollen. It looks like a belly. :) ama not belly.

First Bulk - 8 Week Progress

I'm eight weeks into my first bulk. Trying to take it slow. I was on a 10 month cut until mid January and lost 40 pounds. I jumped about 8 pounds during a three week maintenance phase which I wasn't surprised by, given the long calorie deficit I was in. I started my surplus at 160.5 and I'm now...

Eating for hypertrophy vs. longevity

I'm wondering if any members of this forum have put any thought into this. It is particularly relevant for those of us in our 30s and beyond. Note that I am not an expert in the nutrition and longevity field. My knowledge comes from listening to interviews with experts on Joe Rogan, Ronda Patrick's...

Can I still gain mass at a small surplus if I cant gain a lot of strength?

Sleeping and recovery

So sleeping is vital for muscle building and so, and people recommend around 6-8h per day. But does this mean straight sleep (like, going to bed at 11pm and waking up at 7 am). Or, as long as you can manage those hours of sleep into your day it's all good? Because I know about those REM,...

The Squat.

Working on the chicken legs. I've never had big legs, they are long and athletic though. I have achieved squatting weight now at 48 that I could even touch in my 20's, so getting older doesn't mean backtracking at times. I have never been strong at squatting so hitting this mark is big for...
