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...

New member, 50 yrs-old and down 51 lbs so far

I actually joined this forum in 2007 because I was about 40 years old, overweight and out of shape. But I never made a single post and now 11 years later the email tied to that username was no good so I created a new account. I have lost 20 or 25 lbs a couple times over the last 16 years but...

Sticking to BB Rows for the sake of time efficiency

I know that DB rows are probably better as a muscle builder due to better support, range of motion, etc. Do you guys think it's a fair difference though? Personally I row about 20% more (if I double the DB weight) which is a strong symbol to me that maybe it really is vastly superior as a movement....

Bench press for tall guys

I'm 6'3 with 6'6 wing span. I don't have any triceps-specific exercises in my workout, although I have a lot of compound lifts that will work tri's. As the fat peels away, my tri's are one of the muscles I notice the most and my chest is probably the weakest area of my body. Is it a...

Question How much creatine is too much?

I posted this question in the supplement forum and figured I'd post it here in case some of us "older" folks don't frequent the other forums. Conventional wisdom says you need 5g per day. Most people who take regular supplements do a pre WO drink and a post WO drink; both of these usually have...

Forarm exercises to alleviate golfers elbow

Because of my work, constant typing and repetitive wrist motions for a long period of time and lack of strength on my forarm I've developed as it seems a mild case of golfers elbow. This has put some doubt in my ability to perform at 100% when lifting weights, especially now that I'm 2 weeks in...
