Chest Issues - 40 Years Old

Hi - I've been working out for about 10 years now. I spent my 20's getting fat and playing video games, and my 30's getting fit. I quickly lost about 60lbs when I turned 30, then proceeded to strength train for until now. Not that it's huge numbers, but I got to the point that I could deadlift...

Messed up my lower back!!

I'm never touching dead lifts again. I got to where I wanted to be. Between the deadlifts and my awkward sleeping positions my lower back finally had enough. I push to hard and get sloppy form eventually Once I heal and get better I'll start off slow and light. I'm going to be intimidated of...

Periodization: Necessary? Optimal? or just individual preference?

Hello all - what are your thoughts on periodization? Periodization defined here is planned periods (mesocycles) to vary variables; for example 3 weeks low volume, 3 weeks medium volume, 3 weeks maximum recoverable volume, 1 week deload (to desensitize muscles), and start over. Note volume is just...

I started lifting again in the fall and...

Do mike mentzer`s heavy-duty hit program only work if you`re very fit?

I mean, he advocated later in his life to do a single workout to failure every like 5-10 days, but I tried it a little myself some years and I never grew anything, almost nothing in strength ether, but now later I feel I could probably do a single workout and then rest some days before doing the...
