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,...

6th month of “minimum”...I dunno guys

So, I’m into my 6th month of doing a “minimum“ workout that takes me 30 minutes, 3 days a week...so 1 1/2 hours a week total. I’ve totally stopped monitoring diet. I generally eat healthier than most, but there’s been plenty of junk too. I just eat whatever when I’m hungry until I’m satisfied. ...

Keeping going as you get older

Hi all Wanted to create a post to understand how you keep training as you get older? I'm 48 and I've been training since I was around 14, so a decent stint. Obviously with age I expect things to get more difficult, but recently I'm struggling to recover between sessions and I get lots of...

UK gyms reopen maybe July?

No date but rumour is gyms in UK reopen July if all is well. The uk's trade association for gyms ukactive has guidance which is fairly vague https://www.ukactive.com/covid-19 but does have specific things such as workout towels banned, 3m squared per person and obvious things about cleaning....

Lifting after 40: maintain or progress?

Should lifters change their routine after 40, and adopt a more maintenance-oriented mindset, or keep trying to progress? I know they say heavy compound lifts in the 3-5 range is where it's at for keeping your testosterone levels high etc., but what about injury prevention, joint and vascular...

Overtraining way too easily

Im stuck in really low numbers and I cant go more than 4 weeks without "over training syndrome" even when Ive reduced my weekly volume to something that is completely minimal. Piss away 1-2 weeks to recover, then youre right back to where you started. Make progress back up and stall again at the...

Growing calves - what's your sweet spot?

The most stubborn body part for me to even show some growth has always been the calfs. I have slow twitch muscles and discovered high reps do nothing for me. I used to be a long distance runner and played lots of basketball growing up, always had skinny legs and calfs. I have found...

Getting Started, Looking for Community

This was going to be the year that I got it all dialed in: diet, exercise, sleep, work. In January I was a machine. I've never been more productive at work, and never been more disciplined in the gym and with my diet. And then one morning in February, I rushed through my warm-up,...

Just venting

This isn't about advice, it's more just to vent. In 2012 I had the worst chronic fatigue of my life, for reasons that are more complex than a simple post can explain, I believed I had MS and decided to "give up" for the year on working out and spent the entire year on my couch. As an ecto, I...

Waiting to eat..

Just joined up, happy to be here. Hope everyone is well. I just read an article that said its best to wait an hour after you work out to eat. This conflicts with many things I have previously read that say to eat within one hour, or even 30 mins, after working out. Does anyone have more info...

Bedtime Sugar Cravings

I don’t know why but right as I get sleepy and start dozing off, I get a sweet tooth surge. This has been happening regularly within recent months (nothing to do with C19). If I eat candy or something sweet during that time, it’s euphoric as sugar is. But I am a fitness junkie like many of you....

179 lbs, my heaviest weight in over 2 years!

I was 179 lbs this morning with a weekly average of 177 lbs both of which are the heaviest in over two years. I am done with my winter gaining phase but instead of cutting to mid 160’s for summer like I did the last two years I may just maintain below 180 moving forward. When I started this...

When you get an injury do you stop weight training until it heals or work around it?

I have tendonitis in both my right elbow and right knee. Have for years. Tried PT but nothing's helped so far. When you feel pain do you simply work around the injuries and avoid doing movements that hurt while continuing weight training or is it best to stop weight training all together until...

Seeking General Information

So, I'm 47, a touch overweight, and was injured recently at work. As part of my physical therapy, I had to do some weight lifting. I didn't notice any change, but my wife did and started caressing my biceps. Who doesn't want to look good for the wife? So, I've developed a bit of an interest...

Who else broke social distancing rules over the weekend?

Nothing major, but we had a small party with a few friends we hadn't seen since pre-Covid. No masks, no distancing. Needed a break from this chit. Will go back to keeping our distance for a couple more weeks, but it's getting close to enough of this.

Deloading Properly

I've hit the wall on the barbell row (70kg) and the overhead press (52.5kg) and I can't seem to push past these amounts no matter how many times I deload. Am I doing it wrong? Once I fail to hit 5x3 in a session I'll take 10kg off for the next session and slowly build up by adding 2.5kg each...
