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...

Bought a new lat pulldown machine

Finally decided to pull the trigger on a new lat pulldown machine last week. My old one that I got for free years ago just wasn't up to my standards anymore, so gave it to my neighbor. Got this one for $269 on Amazon. They had a special where you got $50 off if you opened up an Amazon credit...

Squat form check

Just started incorporating squats a couple of months back. Right now I'm focusing on form, as opposed to trying to add any significant weight. Would you be able to provide some feedback? I know I need to go lower, but I cannot do it at this point in time. I feel like I'm already going very low and...

Between Meals

I am a 5 foot 10 around 165 pound 38 year old man. It's been tough getting down to that 155 mark. What types of food do you guys eat between meals that actually get you full? I currently do nuts. But it seems like my stomach don't like nuts in large quantities. Looking for ideas.

Coconut oil revisisted

I wonder if anyone is using this or if it was just a fad that died out. I started taking it in the mornings a few weeks back as I have trouble eating anything sensible so early in the mornings (6am) before work. I take 20g in a strong coffee to wash down the 10g of cod liver oil that I also take....

how crazy a goal?

I tend to operate best in a goal oriented mindset. I was just able to reach my first goal since lifting again. I am taking a month off of bench work, to hopefully get my shoulder right. I was able to train around it, (singles, grip change) and luckily my desire didn't cause worse damage. I have...

Question Bit ashamed of my body to be honest.

Hi. I'm 39 now and enough is enough. I've never been able to do 1 pull up. I'm really physically weak, always have been, it's time to change. I am mentally strong and have great concentration when I'm on it.
