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...

Is there any DISadvantage to doing same routine for a long time

Suppose an experienced lifter was psychologically content doing basically the same routine for 1-2 years and just trying to grind out progress whenever possible. Let's say a relatively balanced upper lower split in 8-12 rep range, with occasional small tweaks as the body dictates (grip switches,...

Mindset when you go from Cutting to bulking / Bulking to cutting

I personally find it a little hard to go from cutting to bulking and bulking to cutting. Like I get so used to the lifestyle of one way and to change it so much is hard. Once I get into it I love it though. Bulking I get to eat so much food and almost anything I want, I also get to stack on pounds...

Weaning Yourself Off Gears and Support

The challenge with O-35 lifters is that… ..we are old. As we age, we approach Snap City. Broken bones, bad knees, bad back, bad shoulders, flexibility and mobility get tighter than a size-1 G-string bikini on a 400-lb Jenny Craig dropout. Then you add memory loss, hearing loss, hair...

Newbie question about what's best for definition

Hi all. So I'm a regular guy at 38 yo, regular desk job and two kids. Last time I worked out seriously was around my 25. Since then I've been slowly but surely gaining weight and losing muscle. But 2016 was a crappy year for me, lots of personal problems, and I put on around 10kg in a 8 month...

Is it possible to progress in your lifts over a period of time but in such a way where all of your movements are dysfunctional in some minor way essentially not using the proper muscles for the lifts therefore being completely stagnant in the growth department. I cut from 212 to 185 in a 3 month...
