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...

4 Plate Deadlift PR !!!

Need nutrition help

I'm trying to develop discipline in my diet to cut back on some body fat. I used to be 240 lbs. Now, I'm around 200 and much better. Problem is that the people I work for provide all the groceries and they get all the unhealthy stuff that is good. I've asked in the past for more healthy foods...

Chest Day

I try to mix up my chest workouts every week. How often do you guys think I should mix in high rep training with heavy lifting for low rep sets? I usually try to do one high rep workout every four weeks. I have a 1RM of 375 on flat bench working towards my goal of 405. I saw good gains this summer...

Question Beginner 45y need advices on programs please

Hello, I lifted since 1 year with little progress in muscle gain. I tried Fierce5 and 5-8 reps range isn't for me. I tried All Pro, 8-12 reps range is better on my joint so I was happy but I noticed full-body 3 times a week drains me. So I searched a good program for me that mimic fullbody...

Favorite 3 Day a Week S/B/D Program?

I'm looking for suggestions for a simple program that runs just a few days a week and uses limited exercises. Squat, Bench, Deadlift are a must. Something more strength focused would be perfect (read: lower reps). I'm terribly deconditioned currently, so something linear might be a great idea. ...

Low bodyfat, high visceral fat?

So, I went for one of those body analysis scans at my gym, just for ****s and giggles. I don't put too much weight on the results, but part of it got me thinking. I have lowish bodyfat, I reckon it's somewhere around 13-15%, but apparently (according to the scan at least) I have high visceral...

Cardio Bunny here. Body shape problems

Hey Everyone. This is my first post though I have been a lurker. I probably started the thread with the wrong title. I am/was a couch potato for the last 10 years that decided moving a bit more is a good idea and the easiest way I found without feeling overwhelmed is walking :) For the last...

How does your look change as you get older?

With the general population I see a huge decline in aesthetics, since bodyfat levels begin to run away, and muscle mass was never built to begin with. Thankfully we don't have nearly as much of an issue with those major aesthetic factors. But age affects everyone. I imagine BBers will still see...

Strength Standards

http://www.exrx.net/Testing/WeightLifting/StrengthStandards.html Do the standards at the above link seem "right"? They seem low to me. As in I'm ranking higher than it seems I should, and I see guys in my gym that are at or above the elite level.

How many hours a week do you train?

Bodybuilding and cardio training are counted, but not playing sport. Of course it is a full time proposition with lifestyle, rest and nutrition all being vitally important, but I thought it might be interesting to see how much time people actually spend training. I train for 4.5 to 5 hours a...

Working out with joint pain, need advice

What is the consensus on working out with joint pain? I'm torn between lighter weight and higher reps on the free weights to working out with machines by loading as much weight as I can comfortably handle. Let's just say a medical issue caused me to have severe elbow, back, and knee pain and it...

Deadlift substitute - weighted hyper extensions

If you're like me, having deadlifts in your program can crush your recovery. I've recently traded deadlifts for weighted hyper extensions. This allows me the benefits of deadlifts without taking away from my main focus, squats. In particular, I try to focus on thoracic flexion to extension which...
