What is your one tip to staying fit above 40

I'm 39 and have gotten back to decent shape since a slipped disc and nerve damage 5 years ago. I lift weights and do cardio, but I don't lift really heavy anymore. I do use excellent form, which I didn't in my 20s. What I find the most challenging is losing weight. It's so slow and its...

BMI nonsense?

I remembered the first tool I used to asses my fitness level (or lack of) when I was really fat, was something called a BMI calculator (Body Mass Index). That seems to be the standard for evaluating height/weight ratio in general medicine practice. According to that, when I started I had a BMI of...

Anyone With Shoulder Arthritis?

Learned recently that I have osteoarthritis in my left shoulder, probably from an old (non-lifting) injury many years ago. Still managing to lift pretty well, but the issue is likely to progress. Anyone out there dealing with this? Any special approach that's worked for you?

Curious why some people look very charismatic, while others looks too tight, or infle

I am talking about the aesthetic look some people have when they have gained a lot of muscle mass, maybe in 220lbs+ lean muscle category, while other's look too inflexible or unaesthetic and not as attractive. Why is that? why do some people look more charismatic?. eg; I love lean pro wrestlers...

How to break the cycle??

I have been a life-long yo-yo dieter. It's been a vicious cycle: I decide that I hate how I look and want to get fit, then I get excited about my "new life, new me" and lose weight, but ultimately burn out and gain all the weight back and sometimes more. I'm looking to break the cycle. Has anyone...

Question What is normal testosterone for a 46 year old?

I tried looking this up but I see different opinions on this everywhere. I'm 46 and just had a basic blood test done that included total test level. Mine is at 354 ng/dL. That sounds pretty low to me. Where should I be, and where can I be? I've heard Tongkat Ali and Fadogia have been shown to...

Smith Machine/Free Weights?

This may sound odd but today I was able to bench 205 for 2 sets of 5 each, no real struggle, but then went to a smith machine bench and struggled to get 195 for 4 reps...shouldn't free weights be more difficult than a smith machine?
