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,...

The Truth About Kettlebells

I've dabbled with kettlebells here and there, but not really at all in the last 10 years, however from what I know about what they can do from experience and what I've been seeing lately, most folks who have been on serious kettlebell routine only, meaning "strongfirst" certified type instructor...

Injuries midway through a cut

I was wondering what other people do when this happens. It's happened a few times to me now. I always go maintenance while injured, but once healed I'm always stuck in two minds what to do. Do you just forget about the lost muscle and strength loss and carry on with cut, or go back on a bulk to...

Workout intensity / length questions & critique

Hello, I’m 40 and have been training 5-6 days per week for the last 6 years or so. I have always done pretty long workouts - 90-120min including warm ups & stretching. I have been doing Push, Pull, Legs twice a week with one rest day. I’m happy with that routine - my questions have to do with...

Recommend me a shoulder workout

I'm fairly satisfied with my overall health/fitness, but my shoulders are dis-proportionally small. Give me some ideas for good shoulder routines. I'm 5'10" 168 lbs and 38 years old. I do a 3-day gym split: chest/triceps on day 1, back/biceps on day 2, and shoulders on day 3. These are spread...

Getting back into it after a low patch!

After many years of consistent working out, last year I had a bit of a hard time. My wife was very ill with cancer, (thankfully shes come out of this now) I guess that had something to do with me losing my motivation, my training didn't seem important anymore with what was going on at the time. ...

S’up? If you want to waste some time reading interesting facts you’ve come to the right place! Ok, here’s the first one: Tom Hanks is a bit of a crazed typewriter collector. According to the beloved actor, he’s purchased over 80 of them from around the world since 1978. ‘Why?’ you might ask....

Shoulder problems

I've had shoulder impingement in both shoulders for a year or so. I was training 6 days a week and 7 months ago I tore my bicep in the shoulder. I stupidly tried to train through it and tore my rotator cuff in the same shoulder. I started training again after 4 months after finding out the root...

Are the 2 consecutive days rests per week necessary for full body workouts?

Example is the SL 5x5 which is 3 times per week which will give you a 2 consecutive rest days per week and will give you around 13 workout days per month. How about I modify it to alternating days? 50:50 ratio which is workout day then rest day. It will give me 15 workout days per month and 15 rest...

Fat, Older, Tired and Work in A Factory. How Do I Fix This?

I'm way over 35. I'll be turning 46 in March. I wish there were an over 45 forum, I looked but didn't find one. I hear a lot about it is really hard if not impossible to build muscle as a middle-aged man. To make matters worse I work in a factory on an assembly line, sometimes 12 hours a day. If...

Question Left Middle Delt Issue

Pretty stumped on this one. Not new to lifting, been doing it on/off for 20+ years with breaks due to either illness or injury. My left delt is giving me issues after 6 weeks back in the gym. I get twinges of pain, but only on the return of side raises. Going up there is no issue, everything...

Hook grip for deads rocks?!

Cannot get comfortable in bed!

This is a problem that has plagued me for the last year or so since lifting: I cannot get comfortable in bed at night. All of my life I've slept on my front with my hands under the pillow, but now when I do this at least one of my arms tends to go numb (pins and needles). I also like sleeping...

Deadlifts destroyed my knees

I am pretty disappointed right about now . I have atrial fibrillation and normally can only do about 8-135 before I have to rest . I keep a chair close by so I can collapse in it as my oxygen saturation goes south . Well a week ago for some reason , maybe because I’ve been working out more...

First fullbody workout.

This morning I did my first fullbody workout ever. The positive, the full body pump and knowing i hit every muscle part was extremely satisfying! The bad, it was 14 degrees F in my garage this morning, and felt strange only doing 1 exercise for a bodypart, but saying that I don't feel I cheated...

Extremely Frequent Pulled Muscles

I've been training on and off for the last 18 years. Most recently, I screwed up my back and didn't do anything for the next 12 - 18 months. Then started working on getting back into it 2 months ago. The thing is, I seem to have hit a wall already. Starting 3 weeks ago, it seems like almost...

So at 38 years old, I decided I needed to change my life. I've recently lost 35lbs doing keto diet and light exercises. Now I am stuck at my current weight and decided to kick it up a notch. or several notches. I've hired a Personal Trainer, and he threw me on the Barbells. I've never, ever...

Thumbs down Potential right rhomboid strain/pull, beneath my shoulder blade.

Just so we're clear, everyone has their opinions on stretching before they work out. I 90% of the time pull a muscle when I stretch before a workout and I feel like a fool for stretching upon my arrival the gym. If I do stretch is between workout, but not before the initial workout, it never works...

jeans/shorts that fit good

Does anyone know where I can find shorts and/or jeans that are made to fit someone with large thighs and a fairly small waist? Levi's 560 was a good fit until they stopped making them. I tried Levi's 559 which don't fit quite as good. Every other jeans I try on have to have a waist so big in...

It would be extremely arrogant of me to have expected anyone to notice I haven’t been “active” on the forums for 3 1/2 months. But this morning I took the first pictures in that time, and felt an “update” and “explanation” might be interesting. So, while I have many other interests, Lifting...

Lessons learned in a decade of lifting

Thought I'd close the decade by sharing a few things I've learned, many of them right here on this very site. Just over 10 years ago, I was a smoking, boozing, lost person. A whopping 6' 148lbs. Through this journey I've learned how to love myself and appreciate all that life has given me. A lot...
