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!

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...

Starting out in my 40's

So back story, been lifting since March 2016. Wife and I decided to get in shape after our dog passed away and we didn't have to be home as much. So we took this as an opportunity to better ourselves. It has been a slow process. I hit a plateau where I was not really seeing too many body changes...

Laparoscopic appendectomy recovery

Who's had experience? How long until you were back to lifting 100% without fear of tearing your abdominal wall at the incision points? I have 3 incisions, 2 small, a larger one that's about 1" in length, located 2" inches to the right of the belly button and 1" down. I'm 7 days post-surgery....

Deliberately took 6 weeks off

Per a Greg Nuckols thread, decided to take 6 weeks off. Tomorrow will be first day back. Goal was to try and reset rbe (repeated bout effect). The idea is to exceed max lifts that have been stalled for 2 years, excepting Deads. First 2 weeks will be nothing higher than rpe 8 while I reacclimate...

Building my first home gym

After belonging to my local gym for almost 5 years it’s time to build my own gym. I did some research and picked up a Body solid GPR370 rack, a Powerblock adjustable bench, a Rogue Echo bar and 350LBS of run of the mill steel plates. I already have a set of adjustable dumbbells. I feel like I...

How should I proceed from here?

Ok, so I'm still a little newb. It's only been 3 months since I've lifting heavy things. A drop in the bucket. I've been in a cut the whole time, not drastic, but I feel like I may be hitting a point where it might be time to start transitioning at least towards maintenance, if not a light bulk....

Weight gain, same for all?

I have been patiently trying to manage 1/2pound a week in weight gain. Most say add 200 calories a day to do so, if I add a piece of wheat toast (with butter) daily I gain 2 pounds, I'm sure of all fat in the stomach, what gives? Is it possible I need to add 200 calories extra a week or every other...

Doing something different and need some advice

So I was doing a pretty basic routine on weight lifting prior to this week.

I'm 37 soon to be 38 and I'm...

Can you "even out" excess eating the following day?

Yesterday I ate 4,300 calories and today I ate 2,300 to bring me back to my target average (3.3k). I know, not a good habit, something I rarely do. Intuition would suggest I added about 1/4 lb of fat yesterday and today suppressed muscle growth. On the forums I've read the rolling 3 day average...

1.5 years my "comback" in pics (in response to the "should I cut first?" questions)

I have seen a bunch of threads lately about newbs all wanting to bulk when they are obviously overweight. They come in and ask if cutting is counter productive and if they should just go right into surplus. It is my opinion, that cutting first is the best way. It then gives you the room to...

HDL Level?

Every year at work we have to get a "biometric screening" for our health insurance. When the Nurse Practitioner was going over my results, she seemed as if having an HDL number in the optimal range (i.e., 60 or higher) was not too common. Many websites indicate how to increase your HDL, and below...
