    Nice article. I enjoyed seeing all the pics with a description. I remember when a lot of it was acquired, piece by piece. You have a great gym, AttyGuy.

    ^^^ what they said.

    BUT I suggest using a food tracker so that you can learn how much you are eating and control the quantity of food you eat. Diet is important. That means eating less. If you do...

    Your descriptions make me cringe.



    I fail to see how anyone could visualize their hips popping during a deadlift. Deadlifts are not ballistic movements. The value of doing KB swings immediately...

    As noted by others, you are likely seeing a difference in your squatting mechanics.

    I prefer to lift barefoot. It helps that I have a home gym.

    I first started lifting as a teenager. I am in my 60s now. I have had breaks from lifting, but rarely for more than a year or two at a time. I plan on lifting until I die.

    I like lifting. I find...

    ^^^^^ This. You probably have heard the line: "Abs are made in the kitchen." It is true.

    That being said, I used to use an ab roller. Then I got a glute-ham roller. Besides hamstring curls, I do...

    I prefer to do "conditioning" workouts, not cardio. Kettlebell swings are great, particularly if you do 400 to 500 a day.

    My $80 Schwinn Air Dyne gets a good workout when I do my Tabata sprints. I...

    I like working out barefoot. Sometimes I wear socks and water shoes if it is cold.

    As for shoes saving your toes from a dropped weight . . . LOL

    I started out making my own lat/pulldown machine. It was not smooth and was a pain to set up and use each time. I did not use it for long.

    I picked up a home gym just for the pulldown feature. It...

    Do you have a marine or boating store nearby? If they sell sailboat stuff, they likely have the cable and can swage eyes at the end for whatever length you want.

    I use a lat-mid row machine, so I...

    I just ordered the Spud Safety Squat Bar Strap at Black Friday pricing. I have been using an EliteFTS SSB because my shoulders won't let me do straight bar squats. I am looking forward to seeing how...

    Good for him for taking up lifting when he was 90.

    I can only imagine what I will be like in 30 years when I am in my 90s: I will either be still lifting weights or pushing up daisies.

    I used to throw my back out every fall. Seems like the onset of cool weather signaled the onset of back pain. But that was years ago. Someone gave me the book Treat your own Back by Robin McKenzie....

    Where I come from, posting someone's name and city, state, qualifies as doxxing. That is usually enough info to identify a person. Not cool. If you were a standup guy, you would edit your post above...
