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...

Protein Shakes making me gain weight & I want to lose weight not gain it. Help!!

About 3 weeks ago, I began to start eating right. I'm doing a low carb diet. I lost 8 pounds right off, (I went from 223 to 215) so I'm think that was alot of fluid. The second week of my diet, someone introduced me to Protein Shakes. I began to drink one in the morning (between 45-60 carbs) & a 15...

Progression

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...

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...

59 year old Male looking for a new workout routine.

I'm 59 and have been working out with weights since I was 41. I'm 6'4" and about 230 pounds. I look pretty good, except for the bit of fat around my waist. I've quit drinking alcohol and have been trying to clean up my diet (I have sugar cravings that are almost overpowering) to shed the fat,...

Wanting to say goodbye to my 'Dad bod'...

I'm sure I'm going to hit most newbie cliches here, but I have read a lot of the stickies, and am looking for anything from a simple "hello, good luck!" in response to this, my first post, to anything constructive that can improve my plan. I'm 38, and for most of my life I've been quite skinny...

what type of exercise is best for building a wider back?

Having a slimer waist line would work, but are there specific exercises for a wider back? short grip rows, wide grip rows?

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...

Skinny fat guy - my journey

I just wanted to share my experience being that most posts you see on here are about people that are over weight. I always have had a hard time gaining weight (still do, even in my late 40's, 49 to be exact) but as my journey with fitness continuous, I just wanted to share my "skinny - fat guy"...

I’m back - advice needed after 4 years of 5x5

So it’s been forever since I last posted, But I could use some advice. For the better part of the last year, I hit 5x5 very hard; first on StrongLifts, where I first lost a ton of weight and learned a lot about form etc. The last 16 weeks, I’ve been using madcow with what I think is great...

Gym life without pre-workout supp boost??

Could be that I’m reaching my ceiling quickly on my strength training lifts before I deload and mix things up for summer but I’ve been trying to avoid buying PreJym just to cut some costs, etc... Been taking it for a long time now, maybe this is a good thing to train without it for a while... but...

High pulse rate in the mornings

Have noticed a trend with myself in the last months. I'm not sure if this has always been the case, or if it's just something I'm noticing recently. In the mornings when I start moving around and especially after my breakfast, my pulse rate shoots up to normally in the 80's and takes quite a...

Warming up properly

Ok... first up I accept this is a dumb question. I accept this makes me look like I have no idea what I'm doing. I accept that I am stupid But hey.... I actually do have very little idea of what I'm doing so .... I have been training for about 10 months now. When I started, warming up...

resetting failed exercise or all?

Hi all, currently on a PPL routine. program says to reset weights after failing 3 workouts. question is, is it wise to just schedule the reset for all regardless of progress, let's say, every 4-5 weeks? (something like the 5/3/1 mentality) is that okay in your estimation or am I not...

Does recovery takes longer in your 30s?

I used to be an active kid with a healthy weight till I was around 10, but started gaining fat thereafter and was fat well until 30. I worked out on and off, never being able to lose fat or build muscle all this time (because I was not doing it right) but did learn how to lift, common exercises,...

First week eating at maintenance

So I've decided to take a break from my cut. I've lost significantly over the last year and I'm pretty happy with it. I'm currently eating at maintenance, which for me is 3,000 cals. I'm finding this very hard. I feel like I'm eating all the time. I've had to resort to eating adding a...

Switching from 3x5 to 5x3 while cutting.

When I do my big exercises like squats bench deadlift while cutting, I have the strength but I do not have the stamina at all. I find I can keep or increase my weights but not doing 3x5 or even 1x5 its the 5 reps I can't get through. Today on bench I did 5x3 but on the last set I did 1x1 break...

Bench press twice body weight

I currently weigh 175 lbs and can bench press a one rep max of 315 (no chest bounce, butt on the bench). I'm almost 46 years old, all natural with no injuries and I'm wondering if benching twice my body weight is a realistic goal. I figure if I lose 10 lbs then I would need to bench 330, which is...
