Almost 2 x 35!

I am 62 this year, almost 2x35! I was hoping to find a forum here for over 50 or over 60 - did I overlook something? I am going to get back on the wagon in the beginning of September. Most important: lose 30-35 pounds (will depend on how -30 feels as to whether I go for more.) Next are...

When are you too old to grow?

I'm 47. I lifted extensively before lockdowns and I've not been able to get the groove back and I'm stuck in 'dad bod' territory I really wanna grow, but should I just accept my age? If you think I shouldn't, would any guys with experience of bodybuilding at my age please make themselves known...

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. Anyone on BP meds? At first I was...

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....

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...

Am I too old, or does everyone do 8 sets of 8~12rm

Am I too old, or does everyone do 8 sets of 8~12rm. I joined a small cheap weight lifting gym yesterday. There are not a lot of machines, but I have everything I need including pull up bar, shoulder press machine, leg press machine, pull down row machine, chest fly machine. I don't need anything...

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...

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...

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...

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...

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...

Help organizing my week

The only part of my physique I'm unhappy with is my biceps so I think I want to swap out my shoulders/tri day for just arms but at the same time I don't want to do arms the day before back/bi because I don't think I'll be fully recovered and it'll impact my back exercises.

Resistance training is my approach to slow the process of sarcopenia. Sarcopenia is an age-related, involuntary loss of skeletal muscle mass and strength.

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

Anyone tried liquid chalk?

So the gym I joined doesn't allow chalk, which is a bit rubbish. However, it's cheap, convenient, and I only really use chalk for heavy (for me) deadlifts. Although I could do those at my rugby club gym, I don't fancy running back and forth, so was looking at liquid chalk. Has anyone used it...
