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,...

Sugar "bulking"

Just sharing an idea I am going to try. I am long past the day where I can measure 'progress'. I have to look at my training from a yearly standpoint and even then, things are hard to see. Looking back at this past year, I essentially did nothing. My accomplishment was staying in the gym...

Frustrated with inner elbow pain

I am asking for help here out of frustration. I have been getting mild inner elbow pain in both arms when doing heavy dumbell incline press. Since I was in my mid 20s I've benched 110 to 115's for 10-12 reps without issue. Now at 38 I'll start getting pain in my inner elbow when putting...

I've actually made some gains! but for what at this age?

I made a post way back in 2005, complaining a bit and probably asking for advice. Everything in that post has remained true for the following 15 years up until the past few months. But somehow I've finally made gains. At 47 years old, I've finally made a real and noticeable gain. One of the replies...

Sets per week graphs, current goals, bla bla bla

Just thought I would share some current goals and data as some might find the charts interesting. I am currently lifting only two days per week while I spend time on another hobby (archery).  I used to hunt and shoot my bow in a few target leagues but that was 25 years ago.  I did not miss...

Hammer Strength: Who Uses Them?

I typically workout at home, but I do accompany my wife to her gym as a guest on occasion (PF) where I use either an incline bench or seated OHP on one of the Smith machines. She's been a member for over 18 months, and until tonight, I've simply ignored the Hammer Strength machines. Tonight I gave...

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...

Behind the Neck Shoulder Press

Behind the neck press was a stable shoulder exercise of the old school bodybuilders. Today it’s deemed dangerous and nearly nonexistent in today’s world of bodybuilding. And is altogether banned from various gyms and sports workouts. Again prime example of the movement not being the problem, but...

Racing my brother to pull 500

I posted today's top set on Facebook and ended up challenging my brother to race to 500. He's been lifting for years, is 6 ft tall, weighs 200 lbs, and is already at 475. But he's a hardgainer and uses himself as an example that even the scrawny kids can get jacked. I'm only at 455 and much...

Education of a Bodybuilder

This was Arnold’s book at the beginning he stated that he and his partner would do 20 rep squats in an I go, you go fashion. That and the fact that he worked up to a 700lb dead is how he got to 250lb and eating. Nuff said, it’s that easy. But still hard work.

Shoulder pain and health

I started having some pretty significant pain in my left shoulder about a week or so ago. Hurts when I lift my arm overhead, put it behind my back, raise it in front of me. Unfortunately, I don't really know if I slept funny (with my arm overhead) or I strained it benching or something. The...
