Trying to fix my workout.

Currently, with my workouts I pretty much do the same workouts for a specific muscle group, and wondering what else I can do to try and help growth. One example is my bicep/back day. I will do regular curls 3x10-11 reps, then “21’s” x 3 sets (where I use a barbell do 7 curls starting from the...

Took 10mgs Boron for 5 1/2 months; test jumped almost 20%

This is strange, I got more bloodwork done this morning to verify and/or further investigate (I'll update when I get those results)... Here's the details at this point: I have always had a good TOTAL test level, around 775 at 57 years old, but my FREE test was always very near the bottom of...

What to do when cutting has stalled

I've been cutting for the last 16 weeks. My bodyfat is the lowest it has ever been, but not yet at fully visible lower abs (my goal). I still have a little bit of fat over my lower belly that I really want to burn off. My problem is that my weight loss has stalled for several weeks and my energy...

Gym Etiquette: Not Racking That Which Was Not Racked

The following conversation happened on 8/9/2022: Me: Excuse me, I believe you forgot to rack the 45's on either side of the hack squat you were using. Him: I don't rack weights that were left on the machine. Me: Did you use those weights? Him: Yes. Even though the world is in a state of...

Viagra as Pre Workout

Anyone here have experience with using Viagra or generics as a pre workout? I’ve found the pump to be better than any pre workout I’ve used over the years, while also being stimulant free and allowing for better sleep. However, as the old saying goes, if it seems too good to be true…. I...

Serious Question: For those over 50, why do you do it?

Pretty much as it says in the title. I am genuinely interested in why and / or how you do it as it's not the fun that it used to be for me. The blah, blah, moan, bitch, woe-is-me text is below should you care. I used to love working out (primarily weight training and swimming) and peaked in my...

Tennis Elbow Fixed...

Figured I'd post some advice. At age 50, I finally figured out how to get rid of tennis elbow in my right arm, from benching. Lot's of barbell curls with the EZ bar. Maybe it works with the straight bar too, I dunno, but EZ bar is easier to grab. I do one set of curls for every bench and...

DOMS Increasing with Age?

As I get older, I find myself being more sensitive to DOMS. For example, these days I can do only two sets of an exercise and I'm sore the next day. Is there something wrong with me, or am I just getting old? :p

Thoughts on this 3 day push/pull superset. 5 day split not working out anymore.

Thoughts on a 3 day, possibly a fourth day work out like this: first workout - chest / back superset second workout - shoulders / core s third workout - legs / arms four minutes in between sets so that should allow for enough time to superset. used to do 5 day splits, prefer those but my...

Beginning To Lift At 40, Without Injury?

Wanted to start lifting at 30, but couldn't afford home equipment or the gym. (I'm an American in Israel, don't ask). I started doing 60 pushups everyday, until I got probably minor rotator cuff tears and stopped due to shoulder pain. As a kid in the 90s I did endless pushups and never got hurt....

Unhappy Failed TRT test, what are my next steps? Looking for options

I'm a 36 yo Caucasian male and was just recently turned down for TRT therapy. As a bit of background, I got a late start into weightlifting, and started making extremely fast nooby gains in my upper 20s and early 30s. I got pretty stupid strong on many exercises in a short amount of time while...

Blood Pressure

I have been dealing with elevated blood pressure for a while now, but last week I went to donate blood and the nurse took my BP and it registered at 180/110, so I am going to go seem my GP tomorrow and most likely get put on medication before something explodes.
