Bodyweight + 100lbs leg press VS bodyweight squats 100 reps

Bodyweight + 100lbs leg press VS bodyweight squats 100 reps. Which one is better if you had no issues with joint health? I was doing bodyweight + 100lbs leg press yesterday (I just do 8 reps, 2 sets cause I have bad knees), and my left knee felt strained, and there was slight pain for the whole...

Greasing The Groove

Whether we have been at this over 20 years or are trying get back into this after a 20 year layoff, I have a feeling with all the BS out there many of us (including myself) have forgotten an essential basic. It’s called greasing the groove (no, not our socks, Pockets, lol). What is this greasing...

What relatively basic thing(s) did you learn way too late?

I've made a dozen or so posts in the "Misc" section of this forum before actually finally posting something related to bodybuilding. LOL. In my interest in bodybuilding that began about a year ago, I've learned more than I've known about any sort of physical training for probably the rest of...

Viagra as Pre Workout

Anyone here have experience with using Viagra or generics as a pre workout? I’ve found the pump to be better than any pre workout I’ve used over the years, while also being stimulant free and allowing for better sleep. However, as the old saying goes, if it seems too good to be true…. I...

Soreness, not sure what to make of it

I've started, recently, experiencing soreness 4 days after working out. That is, it appears on the 4th day. I've been working on building up the strength in the back of my right shoulder, so I am taking more days off than usual over the last couple of months. I've concentrated on fewer sets at...

Pretty much as it says in the title. I am genuinely interested in why and / or how you do it as it's not the fun that it used to be for me. The blah, blah, moan, bitch, woe-is-me text is below should you care. I used to love working out (primarily weight training and swimming) and peaked in my...

Need assistance with calorie target (beginner, bulking)

From what I understand, an absolute beginner in their 20s can hope to gain half a pound of muscle per week (in the best case), which would require a caloric surplus of about 250. I will be an absolute weight lifting beginner, but twice that age. Is it correct to assume that my maximum potential...
