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,...

Skinny fat - 174lb and 25-30% body fat - I don't know how to fix this

I'm male, 37 years old (I don't know why my profile says 50), I'm 174lb (12st 6), I'm 5'11 in height and from looking at example pictures on the internet I would estimate that my bodyfat percentage is somewhere between 25-30%. I'm weak and if I stand sideways and let my stomach go I look pregnant. ...

Reunited.

For some reason I stopped dead lifting for about 8 months, but I'm back. This movement is just the total package when it comes to a full body exercise. I'm back only 3 weeks and tried to give 300lbs a whirl, how's the form? I do feel rusty. https://youtu.be/zfqJmqzDnTU

Angry What are these dots on my back ?

i. imgur. com/2OngPg8. jpg Hello, I have these two dots on my back but cant say what it is. I've seen a similar case on a person in a small fitness forum in my native language but nobody has been able to identify the issue (the guy has 4 of them, 2 on the left and 2 on the right), that's why I...

Advice on workouts - changing priorities

I've recently turned 45, and have been lifting consistently for about the last 8 years. Before then I lifted on and off with other exercises and periods of laziness mixed in. For most of the last 10 years my goals were to increase size and strength, and my workouts tended to be some variety of 4x...

Lifting after 40: maintain or progress?

Should lifters change their routine after 40, and adopt a more maintenance-oriented mindset, or keep trying to progress? I know they say heavy compound lifts in the 3-5 range is where it's at for keeping your testosterone levels high etc., but what about injury prevention, joint and vascular...

Share your injury prevention routine

Noticed I started getting injured more often after a certain age. I like to think it's because I push myself harder, but some of it is probably age-related. Things I do these days: * Spend enough time warming up using a variety of moves * Do a proper stretching routine every other day *...

Resistance Band Training

Hey all, I'm 39, and really looking to get back into getting my body back to what it was a few years back when I was lifting. Obviously right now is crazy with gyms being closed, and exercise equipment being inflated 3-4x what it was only a few months ago. I'm just sick and tired of how far...

How to resume mass gains?

For 5 months I was gaining 0.5lb/week, of muscle (a bit more in total mass), consistently, and then I got mentally and somewhat physically fatigued (when attempting to move from 3/week to 4/week) and switched away from Strongur Phase II workouts to Fierce 5...both adapted to dumbbells, due to...

Glute Activation Journey...for funsies

I just had my first workout ever in which I was able to split squat 2x50 dumbbells, all the while my knee tracking perfectly, and not wavering. For me, this was huge. I started with a 95# squat and 315# deadlift. In hindsight, I can say that my deadlift was straight leg; after correcting...

Question Training for steep hill climbs?

I’m 49-years-old and a daily golfer. I’m in moderate shape. Recently because of the virus, the golf club hasn’t been offering carts, so we throw our bags onto pull carts and walk the course. It’s great exercise! I’m an avid walker, so walking 6-7 miles doesn’t wear me out — but there are four...

degenerative disc disease?

the short of it- pretty much new to lifting, did it for a good while 5-6 years ago but getting to a gym w/ family and work was too much after a while.

Powerlifter decides to cut.

I've posted on here occasionally. I mostly lifted for size and strength since 15 years of age. I competed in powerlifting meets, set a state record some years ago in bench press (WNPF) as a lifetime natural. I always wanted to get bigger and stronger, didn't care about 'looking lean'. I'm...

I am a custodian for a school, now with this whole covid thing, I have been doing all types of physically intense jobs, I come home almost daily, and I can hardly lift my arms. It is a job, not like working out at a gym where I can let my muscle recover for 24 - 48 hrs. No, I have to be back at...

Struggling with building strength, stamina, and endurance

I am 42m, 5'11". I don't look my age according to most, but I have been severely overweight for a number of years due to unhealthy eating habits, depression, and life's circumstances.

So, I’m into my 6th month of doing a “minimum“ workout that takes me 30 minutes, 3 days a week...so 1 1/2 hours a week total. I’ve totally stopped monitoring diet. I generally eat healthier than most, but there’s been plenty of junk too. I just eat whatever when I’m hungry until I’m satisfied. ...

DeadLifts, Never Under 405, Update

I stared a thread earlier this year that I will never do a DeadLift workout under 405 for as long as possible. I don’t know where the thread went, but I can’t search over 2 pages. What it means is I must do at minimum 1rep with 405. I have stuck to this, but sometimes I don’t DeadLift every...

Took a video from behind just to see what was going on. I never seem to feel rows in my back. Also my back is lacking in development regardless of heavy dead’s, rows and pullups. Perhaps someone can point out a form issue. dbpUwtBOdbg

I am looking for good quality DB handles (screw type). No cheap garbage with loose fitting collars etc. good quality machined steel. Price isn’t really an option. Google Just returns CAP BB junk and the likes.

Keeping going as you get older

Hi all Wanted to create a post to understand how you keep training as you get older? I'm 48 and I've been training since I was around 14, so a decent stint. Obviously with age I expect things to get more difficult, but recently I'm struggling to recover between sessions and I get lots of...
