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,...

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...

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...

UK gyms reopen maybe July?

No date but rumour is gyms in UK reopen July if all is well. The uk's trade association for gyms ukactive has guidance which is fairly vague https://www.ukactive.com/covid-19 but does have specific things such as workout towels banned, 3m squared per person and obvious things about cleaning....

Optimal volume (sets per muscle group per week) for those in our 50's

hey all - what is your opinion regarding volume (WORKING sets per major body part per week) in your 50's? I realize you can google this and get hundreds of answers, but looking for the actual real world opinions of those like me in our 50's (natural... only mentioning that because I know it impacts...

Overtraining way too easily

Im stuck in really low numbers and I cant go more than 4 weeks without "over training syndrome" even when Ive reduced my weekly volume to something that is completely minimal. Piss away 1-2 weeks to recover, then youre right back to where you started. Make progress back up and stall again at the...

When you get an injury do you stop weight training until it heals or work around it?

I have tendonitis in both my right elbow and right knee. Have for years. Tried PT but nothing's helped so far. When you feel pain do you simply work around the injuries and avoid doing movements that hurt while continuing weight training or is it best to stop weight training all together until...

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...

Advice for recovery from work

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...

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...

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 *...

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...

degenerative disc disease?

Back injury, looking for exercise recomendations

So, first post. I wasn't sure where to put this, so "over 35" (I'm 55) made sense. A little background: I'm 55 and was released from the air force nearly 2 years ago. Canadian. I flew Search and Rescue for 30 years (first the CH113 Labrador, then the CH149 Cormorant) and I've got a laundry...

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
