    I've just been doing 2 times a week with whatever I felt I could do, which is usually heavier than I should go. Had a few weeks on leg press due to back pain, but got no regrets.

    Weights can't be too low. I mean you can't do 50 rep sets. You definitely can't do 15 rep sets that you could have done 30 times.

    At the intermediate level though I think you have to do some of...

    It's never too late to start. I may be too late to become the next super Body Builder or Strongman, but it's never too late to better yourself, be more muscular, be stronger, be a better you.

    Back in the 60s/70s/80s/ you could do that in the USA. Steroids weren't illegal until the early 90s and it was a typical BS law IMO.

    Let me know how it works. I was shocked by the results, but it does take time. I been doing 2.5 months, and actually increased my weight once from 80-90. I feel like I'm near the end as I'm just...

    Dunno if it helps at all, but as I said in my other post, I had tennis elbow for decades. I did a rando Google search and found some forum where a guy was talking about high rep / light weight EZ...

    Good advice. I used to lift with this guy in his sixties. He wasn't doing any PRs, as he had been very strong when he was younger, but he was still a tough old guy. At one point he started losing...

    The idea that you are "leaving gains on the table" if you don't work out every day is inherently false simply because your body can only build so much muscle. Instead of building it in the right...

    Periodization is the key. It's fine to do workouts with crazy high number of sets from time to time, but in general you should be around 10-12 working sets per week for any given body part (not...

    I doubt it, steroids were even more common back then as there was zero regulation and not nearly as much social pressure against using them.

    I'm 50. I like 8-12 reps with certain exercises like Squats. I spent 2 months doing 5 sets of 10 at 235 squats twice a week and that was good. Sometimes I mixed it up and do 3 sets of 12 with the...
