Bulking & Cutting in your 50's: Perspectives Wanted

Hello all - I am believer in bulking and cutting, but wondering about it's value for the advanced over 50 natural lifter. I believe a calorie surplus is OPTIMAL for muscle growth, and then a cut following a bulk is usually necessary to get rid of the fat that accompanies the muscle gain. That said,...

When can I realistically expect visible results?

Hi everyone! I’m 41 and the reason I ask this question is that whilst I trained a lot in my 20’s (was super fit my entire 20’s), a little in my early 30’s, but absolutely no weight training since my second child was born 8 years ago (trained until I was 8 weeks pregnant with her then stopped when I...

Cannot increase my 1RM on 5/3/1 before I need to cut again.

Sorry for the long post. I’m struggling here with how I should proceed. I am 40 years old & just under 5’8” tall. I have an extremely small frame with wrists measuring just 6” circumference. I currently weigh in at just under 130lb which does sound really light but if you look at my avi I don’t...

I am going to rant a minute here. I really suck at sustained weight loss. I understand the concepts, macros, weighing food, tracking calories, deficit targets- and I can put them in place, but I constantly sabotage myself. Its driving me nuts. I am stronger than I have ever been (at least on...

Ten Weeks Post Hernia Op

On August 15th I went in to have my 20-year-old hernia repaired. I had been putting it off for so long thinking it wasn't that big a deal. I had even consulted with a surgeon about 10 years ago who told me that as long as it's not bothering me physically or emotionally, I didn't really need to get...

Total Weight or Lean Body Mass when calculating protein needs?

What do you guys use? Total weight or LBM? I'm about 17% BF right now at 168 pounds, if I was looking to consume 1 gram per pound it's a difference of 168 grams verses 139 grams... pretty significant. What do you guys go with? Thanks!

Blast from my past (lost pics)...

I don’t know, but I absolutely love it when people post pictures from when they were younger, or before and after pictures, or progress shots, or just pictures in general. In any case, I have very few pictures from “back in the day”, and even less that have anything to do with

Re-enactment of Epstein Strangling Himself

No racist. But the actor playing the part of Epstein looks like an Asian choking on eggroll. Nevertheless, according to witnesses this is how he strangled himself.
