Distal Biceps Tendon Tear...

On June 3, while tuning up for my PL meet in August I completely tore the biceps tendon in my left arm while dead lifting a paltry 305lbs. Word of caution to everyone, especially us older lifters, although this can happen to anyone at any age according to my orthopedic surgeon, once you hit 35...

35-year-old amateur here. I've spent time in gyms over the years trying to build some bulk and definition, but have never seen the desired results. I started lifting again back in March: 3 - 4 times per week (every other day) for about 1 - 2 hours at a time. I haven't been following any real...

40yr old with knee pain, debating on solution.

Hey Everyone, I have a bit of a dilemma. I'm a 40 yr old male. Over the past few years, I’ve had problems with my right knee. I could feel a grinding/pop sensation if I covered the knee with my hand and completely straightened my leg. Most of the time it was relatively painless, unless I...

Chest development, big space in the middle

As per thread's title, see attached image. I regularly bench, both flat and incline, do 1-hand cable extensions, dips, and I have been experiencing growth (which is to say, I was 100% flat 3 months ago). Yet, there's that big space in the middle, pretty much the whole width of my sternum. ...

Lower back pain

I work an 8-5 desk job during the day and don't have time afterwards to get to a gym, so bought myself a squat rack and adjustable dumbbells. Also attached a cheap pulley that I mainly use for leg curls for hamstrings. Been using this 4 day rotation for a few months. I really enjoy it, but my lower...

Frequency over volume for over 50 natural bodybuilders - Your thoughts?

I have been reading and hearing a lot about frequency being king when it comes to natural bodybuilders. Basically the reasoning is that for NATURAL bodybuilders, protein muscle synthesis stops at about 48 hours (generally speaking of course). Therefor, to MAXIMIZE results, it makes sense to trigger...
