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...

Angry, Irritated, and easily agitated after leg day?

This seems to happen to me quite a bit after leg day (sometimes after back day but not as often), I will wake up and feel this way most of the day. I am thinking it has a lot to do with the stress I put my body through on leg day, I push the squats and leg press pretty hard those days. My...

What's optimal?

What's generally considered more important? Progressive overload or volume with respects to hypertrophy? On days that I feel strong and full of energy should I do more volume, or should I stick to the program regardless of how I feel possibly due to the progressive overload scheme? I've...

Size and Weight question

What does it mean when you get bigger, but scale stays the same? I'm comparing from 2-3 months ago. No measurements, but I'm definitely bigger. Not complaining except that "bigger" is everywhere (including belly). Scale has not moved.

Routines with short weekday and long weekend workouts?

Does anyone have any recommendations for weight training routines where you have easy, short weekdays (where I only have 20-30 minutes to train) and longer, harder weekends (where I have a couple of hours to train)? I have tried Pavel Tsatsouline/Dan John's Easy Strength and Even Easier...

One of the best decisions I've ever made

I've been a member of 24 Hour Fitness for over 30 years, but one thing I've always hated were crowds. Which is why I went to bed early and woke up at 2 a.m. to train when there aren't that many people there. I'd keep that up consistently for 4-5 months and I'd get burned out and just hit the gym on...

Testosterone/progesterone combination

My doctor prescribed this combo for me. I am a male btw. Does anyone have any knowledge of this prescription? I’ve noticed a decrease in my libido. I wasn’t expecting that. Is it in my head?

50 today! Gaining muscle naturally after 40 (progress video)

So, I’ve hit the 50 year landmark. Instead of a progress picture, I decided to mark the occasion with an 8 year “progress” video. No perfect lighting, no cherry picking the best photo, just honest results from many angles, flaws and all. Before you watch I want to say that, while I’m proud...

Building usable strength for work.

I've decided to get my CDL and one requirement is to be able to repetitively lift 60 pounds. Doesn't sound exciting, I know. But because I'm a woman, my heavy lifting has usually been taken from me and my last employer was inspecting tiny pieces of glass. My body hasn't seen much heavy anything...
