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...

Bulking is bulking?

So is there any advantage to eating clean during a bulk? Or does it not matter as long as macros and calories are on target?

6'3 down to 186 pounds

Hey everyone, I've been cutting for 7 weeks and have lost about 15 pounds. About 6 pounds happened in the first two weeks and it's been about 2 pounds a week since using the macros suggested to me. Anyway, I've attached two photos to show my progress. I'm really satisfied with my stomach,...

Time to start lean bulk?

Been cutting for 11 months. I'm 53, 5'10" and started at 194 and now down to 155. Calipers say my BF is in the low 11% range. I still have some stubborn fat on my back waist line. Should I keep cutting to try to lose that or start a lean bulk now and work on it in the next cut?

One Step Forward = Two Steps Back

I've been a member for quite a while. I don't often post, but I am always reading the forums. Over the years, and through the advice given here, I've lost some weight. Seeing a photograph of myself at a family event helped too, and really gave me the boot up the backside I needed. But that...

Smile Beginner question

Hi, new poster and completely new to lifting weights. I'm 45, and not very strong, so I decided to start lifting to gain some strength and for maintenance of muscle mass as we age. I have been looking online for workouts, and I see many suggest, for example, X reps, rest, repeat for 3 sets. Then...

Stomach Vacuums (Do they work?)

Question Now that I am over 35, what should I stop doing?

Nobody told me to stop playing basketball, and I ruptured my Achilles like a pro! In my post rupture research I noticed that this is a somewhat common injury for active men in their 30s and 40s. Had I know the risks, I probably would’ve worn different shoes. Maybe I wouldn’t have played that...

Recovery as you get older

I'm 41 and the last few years I've gone from training 5 days a week since my teens to only being able to train 3 now. Even then I can still go into the next week not feeling totally recovered. Has anyone else found this as they have got older? I know you should listen to your body, but could never...

Achilles tendonitis : almost a year long. Advice?

hi, I injured my achilles tendons (both legs) last year. I do not really know how to be honest. My doctor thinks it could have been a mix of standing for too many hours in a row (retail, no pause) during my shifts + running. I cannot walk / stand for more than an hour without pain anymore....

Are my macros correct

I'm 35, 5'4" 138lbs. And I'm trying to clean bulk to 155. My calories are at 2700, my protein close to 200 and my carbs close to 400. I'm staying the same weight but I've dropped from 14 to 11% bodyfat over 6 months. Obviously if I'm staying the same weight and losing fat I'm gaining...

Anyone else making MAJOR changes to their training inthe new year?

For the last nearly 5 years I have woke up around 3:30am to train at 5am before work. This usually netted me an average of 5-6.5 hours of actual sleep per night. This was mostly to prioritize my training while not impacting time with my family, also my old gym was an absolute zoo after work. Last...

Overcoming adrenal fatigue

I was just diagnosed with borderline severe adrenal fatigue/dysfunction. My cortisol is rock bottom. I have had many symptoms over the last 6 months, but the doc was chalking it up to low thyroid, which I also have. I don't want to have to take another prescription, so I am looking for alternatives...

Lightbulb Body Fat % and Abs

Hi guys, Your feedback would be much appreciated here... So I went for a body composition 3D scan today and according to the report, I have 22% body fat. I find this hard to believe. Based on what I have read, if you have 12% body fat, your top abs (2 pack) start to show. I have a 4 pack...

Deadlifting for hypertrophy.

Just curious what's your go to routine for deadlifts for reps. More for hypertrophy than max weight. 4 x 8? 5 x 5? etc.

New year, new routine, back in the gym

Happy new year to you all. I'm an old-timer who has been here since 2008 or 2009 and have been on and off the website. I've done 5x5, p90x, and other routines. I had a child 1 year ago and due to family responsibilities as well as two back injuries (March 2017 and October 2018), I didn't work...

A very strange knee pain - feels like it's exterior, on the skin's surface but isn't

I did some searches on this and found what seems like hundreds of other people complaining about this exact same symptom and doctors not being able to figure it out.

Anyone else have no idea what their max weight is for a single rep?

I don't know if it's because I'm older, but I've been hitting the gym regularly for 3 months now, increasing my weight every 4-5 weeks, and I've yet to have the urge to see what I can bench/squat/deadlift in a single rep. Is it normal not to care?

Cord cutting alternatives to Netflix?

I'd cut cable ties many years back and feel pretty good about that. Don't really watch network TV or TV in general, but the kids sometimes watch some BS on Netflix. The problem is, more and more, Netflix is getting just a little bit too "woke". I don't need my 5 year old being recommended to...
