    Your first priority should be to get your eating under control. I use My Fitness Pal to track what I eat. At first, it does not matter what you eat. Instead, cut down on HOW MUCH you eat.

    Your lift looks much better than in your last video without the bench. Keep up the good work.

    embedded pic for you.

    Looks like you have a good setup, and you must have a lot of room to have 5 guys working out at the same time. :D

    Gotta keep moving! Good PR.

    One suggestion, though. The bar seems a bit high for starting. It looks like you are doing a calf raise to unrack the bar. I prefer to have the bar a bit lower so that...

    I think many of us who were active several years ago are in a similar situation. I am very happy with the way my gym is set up. I still check CL and other places for equipment, but I don't see...

    That is a good start. A Rep bench and PBs are a good choice. And after 2 years off, a good DB workout can kick your butt. On weekends I do a DB and kettlebell workout at home.

    Interesting accessory for a functional trainer.

    You would need two pulleys like in the video so that you can...

    I am seeing something similar on the buying end when responding to ads.

    I am responding to a lot of ads with no response back. I include a call back phone number when I respond to an ad, which...

    I would not lift with a multi-piece barbell. I would be afraid that with ~100 lbs or more on it that it would break.

    A few years ago, the bar to buy for beginners was the Cap barbell. That is the...

    I've been working myself to death. Not much time to buy anything. :( Barely enough time to use the equipment I have.

    But enough time to check in. :D

    On spread.

    Interesting video. At 66 I am lifting as much as I want to. I like the way he ends the video saying, "When you die, die well."

    That is a lot of plastic that rubbed off onto the bar. And the knurling looks fairly worn in that area.

    The fasteners are not counter-sunk far enough below the surface of the Titan pads. Sometimes you get what you pay for.

    Report back in a year with how the new pads are holding up. The 3D printer...

    Don't use blocks to raise a flat bench. Too unstable and likely to result in bad outcomes.

    That Fitness Reality 2000 XL is a lightweight, consumer quality bench. I would buy that if all you plan...

    If it fits in your program, it is worth getting a bike.

    I have a vintage Schwinn Airdyne at home and another one at my office. The office Airdyne has a reading stand. On weekends I do Tabata...

    25 kg is the minimum to consider. I would not consider any other adjustable dumbbells other than PowerBlocks and IronMasters. Cheaper adjustable DBs often have plastic parts subject to failure. Then...

    The group shot is a start. Pics of each size, front and back, would be even better.

    An important consideration is if you are the type of lifter who may drop the dumbbells after a lift. I don't always gently place my dumbbells on the floor after a tiring set.

    They are worth it. I have two pairs of the 75 lb IronMasters and one pair of 45 Hoist (original version of IM). I have these in my mini gym in my garage, along with a 90 lb set of Power Blocks. Those...
