How do you fight the old?

I need to work in some agility or plyometrics or something on off days to loosen my 50yo body up. Any suggestions? Anyone doing anything fun?

I think I’m old

I am 47, used to be young dumb and full of cum. Now I’m beat up and fat. I think I am at a point where I can go one of two ways. I used to be able to grab myself by the bootstraps but I have very slowly faded away. I need a belief and a vision. I used to love to lift, not so much cardio...

4 Month Transformation: from bulked to cut (pics)

I have been training for 22 years, mostly on a permanent bulk due to being naturally skinny. I have gotten up to 180-200 lbs, and competed in powerlifting meets as a 181. This past year I decided it was time to stop being fat; the permanent bulk has come to an end. I am attaching some...

Pain in brachioradialis

Kept trying to figure out what this is online and everything was about tennis and golfers elbow, totally different locations than what I'm getting. It doesn't feel like distal bicep tendon either. Feels like pain all along brachioradialis when I pull up, row, bench, squat. It hurts most when...

General advice - working around an injury? (or not)

Hi, apologies if this isn’t the best place to post but it crosses a few categories so thought I’d start here since I’m 42 and that’s probably contributed to my aches and pains!
