Upper body is unbalanced between the right and left side

I had surgery when I was a wee lad, maybe a few months old, for a cyst on my left side by the scapula. My mother's memory is a little hazy, but she thinks the cyst was not very deep. Anyway, the surgery occurred in 1958-59. Who knows how they performed surgery back then. So I started doing...

32” jeans wtf

I can’t ever remember having 32” waist jeans, last time must have been as a pre-teen. When I held them up I thought I’d never get into them, they looked like kids clothes. Just the ramblings of a former fat guy in a healthy body, still with a fat guys perspective.

At what point do you abandon a new program if you aren't making gains?

Originally I put this post in the Programs forum, but since I'm 45 yrs old I thought it might be prudent to get feedback from my fellow gray-haired lifters. I'd consider myself an intermediate lifter when it comes to knowing the lifts and form, but over the past year I wasn't making any...

On maintaining and developing good posture as you age.

Any good tips for maintaining and developing good posture as you age? Having lost 35 pounds over the last two years seems to have helped more than anything. Websites are full of advise on how to sit up correctly but I get the feeling that it becomes automatic more than something a person as to...
