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...

is it possible to buff up post 35?

Im 37. Have been working out for about 5 months... wondering... as we get older is it harder to build and retain muscle mass... What sort of milestones are realistic for strength gains and lean muscle. Any feel? 0.5kg per month? 5kg per month on squat? I need something to aim for...

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?

The most common line I hear from big guys at the gym

"I do it based on feel" And they always say these when I start probing their routine. No 5x5. No measuring rest times. No written logs of lifts. And yet they still look well built (for the most part). Extending even further, I notice that horizontal presses seem to make up about 50% of...

Thumbs up Starting from fat loss or muscles?

Hi All, I'm 38, not very sporty or toned. I need to lose about 10/12 lb (especially belly area) with the overall objective of getting lean and toned. Should I start from fat loss only with mainly cardio, or you would recommend a mix of cardio and overall body training, weightlifting all in...

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...

Poll Poll: Wendler's 531 incorporating heavy singles

I recently decided to give 531 another go around to see how I would respond. The choice was made due to lack of time in the gym consistently (2-3 days a week) and to make sure I was squatting, benching and deadlifting at least once a week whenever possible. For those familiar with 531, you know...

Fierce 5 question

With fierce 5 its a 3 day per week cycle, am I allowed to do other cross training on the rest days? I ask this because yes I know bodybuilders are totally against this but I enjoy doing crossfit for a bit of cardio/ high intensity work. I don't go crazy with weight and I don't do kipping...

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...
