Exercises Since Age 13

Hi, I am 57 years old and have been lifting since age 13. I am quite strong now as I have lifted carefully, never been injured, etc. Here is what I do 3x per week with heavy weights. It is very simple but covers everything. One might think that as I have aged my ability would have...

Eating is the hard part not the lifting.

Yes we all know that to get big you need to eat big, my problem is now at 47 years old I don't have a big appetite. I'm still a 3 meal a day guy and anymore I have to force feed myself. I have officially 1 year under my belt of weight training as I was a full time runner for the past 15 years. I...

leg strength for backpacking

I backpack in very steep terrain (e.g. Grand Canyon) a lot and am trying to figure out the best workout. Also, I'm 65yo. In the past, I've trained by climbing tall staircases (100+ steps) wearing a heavy backpack (48lb on my 170lb frame, but actually hiking I rarely carry much more than 40lb). ...

Anybody have focus issues, related to workouts only?

Have my own equipment, and zero motivation issues. My lack of focus is limited to my workouts, and unsure why. Lifted years ago, was younger (15 years) plus used a stack no longer available, had no issues then. No pre-workout other than a double dose of coffee currently. My mind is all over the...

Sets and reps for over 60

Hi guys, I'm 61 and just starting. My experience? I've read several books. I'm looking to something like what Mike Menzer wrote in High Intensity Training.

My home level of insanity!

After looking for over a year, I finally added a standing calf raise to my home gym! Yes, a big heavy welded machine that moves a weight about 6 inches up and down, that works out one tiny muscle, my worst muscle, that is primarily determined by my crappy calf genetics anyway...and I couldn't be...

Greetings fit people! I have a question I hope someone can help me with. I turned 50 this year and over the past several years I seem to have little zest for life.

Are body split workouts not the natural?

I have been doing a body split workout forever, but now doing some reading into splits (this is why it's always bad to do too much reading about bodybuilding, too much information out there and what's true or not), most information I'm getting is body splits are not for natural body builders.

Can 5Kg dumbbells increase muscle size?

First my apologies for the newbie question. Can a pair of 5Kg dumbbells be used to increase muscle size in someone that didn't weightlift before and has very limited muscular mass and a slim build? Mostly taking about arms and maybe a bit of shoulders. Thanks in advance for your help.
