Best Type Of Deodorant ???

Hey everybody any suggestions on a nice deodorant to use for shaved underarms? Don't really sweat that much and pretty much always wear tank tops or sleeveless outside and at gym, but since shaving smooth the typical stronger deodorants tend to sting when I try and out it on.. Thanks for the help!

Age 51: Would like advice

I am 51 years old and have started lifting weights again in the last few months. I have worked out on and off throughout my life. I don’t compete in any form or fashion, and I’m not trying to look like a bodybuilder. I just do it to try to stay in shape and build a little muscle as I age. ...

Over 40 and just starting out (ADVICE)

I just recently turned 40, and although I was athletic in my teenage years, I never lifted weights. Ever. I just started out, and on my first workout I did triceps and chest and I think I overdid it a bit and got so sore that I could barely move my arms. I attempted to do Biceps/Back the next...

Finally......progress

It’s been awhile since I posted. I hired a coach to simply tell me what to do and what to eat because I am just bad at managing this stuff for myself and I can admit it. I am up almost 10 pounds in 2 months at 193 and I couldn’t be happier. Diet is at 3900 50/30/20. Routine consists of 2 legs days,...

10 years and finally seeing my goal through. Gym pic from tonight.

I came back here 10 years ago after a decade off. My first few years focused on rebuilding and stripping off bulk layers of fat. I became a fan of IIFYM and spent 4 years never once staying the same weight two weeks in a row. Always running a surplus or a deficit. Swinging my bodyweight...

Quick question

Proximal Bicep Tendon rupture (novel ahead)(not as good as guyjin though)

So, I'll start from the beginning (warning...novel ahead, cliffs below) Last Monday night at the gym I was doing lateral raises and felt a huge 'POP' in my right shoulder. It felt like a really hard knuckle pop, but in my shoulder. It buckled me at the time and I remember looking down and...

At what age did you start to notice a physical decline in your body?

I'm 41 and feel no different than I did at 20. I'm still peaking strength wise, energy still the same as ever. I'm just wondering at what age should I expect to start seeing a decline.

A couple skip-rope vids I made....

I like to skip rope at least a couple times a week for 20 minute sessions. Good cardio and way less boring than regular running. This is one is with a speed rope PLzBzhXeN_s And then this one is with a heavier rope, which makes things are lot tougher and fatiguing. loQ00hY-yj0
