    I get unreasonably tired when I work out as compared to not working out. I wish I could find the root to that.

    Thanks for all the replies to my whining post. :-D

    I am not accurate on calories. Half the time I have no clue. I try to to follow a protein like chicken breast about the size of my fist, and then...

    That, and actually how much to eat may have been a nice thing to know at some point. I can't even count how many times I made "gains" in fat. I was never one to buy bigger pants to accommodate fat....

    It's mostly sarcasm and depression. I've always been thin, weak, tired, borderline malnourished. catching colds 4 times as often as other people. I got my first weight set when I was like 14. Been in...

    For myself, I don't see any value in being an old geezer - ripped or not. I somehow got lost in time and I'm still trying to make goals and milestones that where due 25 years ago. I can't imagine any...

    I was just starting to give negatives a real go. Last "session" I did like 25 sets of "1" negative, lowering myself over 30+ seconds, and staying at the top as long as possible. I was sore, but I...

    I didn't eat so much in my 20s either. In fact, my 20s aren't really anything to measure against. I was addicted to playing guitar in my 20s, so I had back and shoulder problems, I sat stationary for...
  • I've actually made some gains! but for what at this age?

    I made a post way back in 2005, complaining a bit and probably asking for advice. Everything in that post has remained true for the following 15 years up until the past few months. But somehow I've...

    SuffolkPunch,

    From reading a bit on the web, it sounds like my inability to do many pull-ups is because my back and posture is jacked, and I am not properly engaging the important muscles.

    My grip isn't titan like, but I fail mostly a the top of the movement. I can do many half pull-ups.

    I do a pull movement every workout, since I want to strengthen anything to do with climbing. So either pull-ups/chin-ups on rings, with enough sets to get me to 40-60 reps; or, rows using the rings....

    I do something similar to the allpro guide, but more sets and a lot of pull-ups/chin-ups using rings. Which leads me to ask: I've been going strong 3 times a week for 10 weeks, and I can only do 5 or...

    I'm struggling

    I started working out again (probably the 90th time in my life), and I'm actually doing good. Doing a more simple workout, with lots off pull ups, squats and dead lifts; lots of hard workouts. I was...
