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,...

Post 2 years on: 6 months of boom, 6 of progress, 12 of stasis

Told my story before, but - in a nutshell: started 2 years ago as never-exercised-before skeleton-with-a-belly. 40 years old back then, 42 now. I am truly OCD when I get into something, so I consistently worked out 4 or 5 days per week since then, began eating as clean as it gets, and in the...

3-month FIERCE!

Hi Guys, I took your advice to start Fierce and have been doing it for about 3 months now. It is great, indeed, good for health, muscles, joints etc. However, not much progress in look, though. What do you think? How to get rid off those love handles, guys? First 2 images from Sep Last 2...

5x5 Stronglifts - do people nearly 50 survive this? LOL...

So I'm working on gaining strength/mass (mostly to recover from atrophy due to 5 years of bed-rest), and decided to start a 5x5 stronglifts program... I'm impressed with the gains I've made so far since switching to nothing-but free-weight compound lifts, so a stronglifts program seemed the way to...

A "relaxed" training regime at home

Some years ago I had a quite exstensive workout regime and trained for 2 full years, white reasonable success. However these days I don't have the motivation to train like that, moreover the eating regime, with meals every 3 or 4 hours, dont suit my lifestyle. But I want to start up again,...

Are Some Resistance Bands More Pliable Than Others

Hi I just bought a green Resistance band to work on my ankle mobility for squats, I got the exercise from Squat University on YouTube you place the band on the talus bone then bend the knee forwards and back. The band is around 1.75" and 4mm thick the guy on YouTube says to get a band around...

Being athletic or just having the outer shell for looks?

This observation I guess continues from a young age to an older guy. That one guy who looks amazing, but has not one athletic ability in his bone. I grew up playing sports, doing stuff, surfing, skimboarding, skateboarding, etc. Tossing the pig iron was always there but not a priority or an...

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 bodybuilding...so...

Chia Seeds

I recently heard about a plant called Chia. I think it is interesting to everyone. From what I've read this is really great plant with wonderful features. For example: Chia Seeds help suppress the appetite, and contribute to drain toxins from the body. Chia seeds are rich in omega 3, protein and...

Cut/bulk protein intake

For those that do cut/bulk cycles, do you change the amount of protein you get in line with the calorie increase/decrease. Or do you change your carbs/fat intake? Or all 3? I have tended to keep my protein intake the same on both bulks and cuts and change carbs/fats. But wondering if it's the...
