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,...

Arrow Sticky Thread Sticky: The Official Ov35 Bench Press Thread!

StrongLifts 5x5 with Arm Work

Can I get opinions on the StrongLifts 5x5 with Arm Work program? Like I've said before, I'm trying to find a program that works "for me". Fierce 5 is great, but it just wasn't fitting what I want to do. I was looking at StrongLifts 5x5 and found the sub routine that includes chinups and dips. I...

Crazy full time schedules plus life in general

For those of us who work long hours, have kids and spouses, obligations and other miscellaneous stuff that life throws at us, I ask these questions regarding time management and where your fitness fits in. These questions are mostly out of curiosity on my part and to compare how others manage their...

How does your look change as you get older?

With the general population I see a huge decline in aesthetics, since bodyfat levels begin to run away, and muscle mass was never built to begin with. Thankfully we don't have nearly as much of an issue with those major aesthetic factors. But age affects everyone. I imagine BBers will still see...

Who Doesn't Want To Synthesize More Muscle?

Interesting Restaurant Just Opened In My Area - Protein House

I ended up driving by a new place that opened up by me so figured I would give it a shot. It's called "The Protein House", which is a bit on the "bro" side in my opinion but surprisingly good food. Super lean/healthy style place that is geared toward people who eat healthy and work out. Most of...

41 years old, 22 months down...

It fascinates me how long it took for me to learn the actual ins and outs of training and nutrition, without all of the BS and confusion that I, like so many others used to struggle with to get into shape. A long way to go, but I feel like I can say the shroud of mystery has been lifted! :)

Muscle Memory

First off I want to say that I am a 20 year old college student, not over 35 but I decided to post this because I was looking for some feedback on muscle memory, and I don't think anyone in the younger forums could give me any accurate information. Some context: I began power lifting at 15 years...

Hey Central Nervous System, WAKE UP!!!

Our bodies perform the following functions: a. Concentric. Dat’s the positive phase of the lift, like curling the bar upward while doing it on the squat rack. b. Negative. Dat’s like lowering the bar in a controlled fashion instead of just giving it to gravity. c. Explosive. Dat’s when you...

Weight fluctuation

I know "water weight" will fluctuate and give you ups and downs on the scale, but I think mine is pretty excessive so I figured I would ask and see if it is or not. during any given week my weight usually fluctuates around 10lbs on any given day. Now what doesn't make sense to me is it's not...

Under the bar

I bench pressed for the first time in years last night. It might be as long ago as 6 years. I've pressed dumbbells, and I've used machines, but not barbell bench press. It felt great! I only pressed 1X10@95 and 4X10@115. I think I can hit 135 for 4X10. It was my girlfriend's first time...

How often do you use a straight Olympic Bar?

I was just thinking about this today. I used to use a regular old straight bar for almost everything from bicep curls to benches, to deadlifts, to presses, and everything in-between. Over the years I've found more efficient ways to work some muscles, and after I hurt my shoulder and bicep, ...

When do you cut off water consumption for the evening?

Question mostly for those who do not have bladder issues. Do you have a point at which you cut off your water consumption before bed? Like an hour or two? I usually cut it off about a half hour before but wake up in the middle of the night.

Would it be unhealthy to go up to 22-24% bodyfat?

So for once in my life I look good in shirts. Some women have even commented positively regarding my weight gain. And I'm even stronger than I've ever been (235 B / 300 S / 405 D) My gut has grown though and I posted pics in the fat loss section thinking I'd be around 18%. No, more like 20% it...
