Thumbs up Sticky Thread Sticky: This week in the O35 II

On this day BLK00TJ is competing at the 2015 Mid-Atlantic State Championships and Military Nationals. I've competed alongside this lifter and his squat is nothing short of elite. Yesterday I had a few surprise PR's in the gym (sorry no pics or vids) Barbell Bench 265 x 6, Dumbells 110's x 9,...

38F, new to lifting! Newbie questions (Oh no!)

So at 38 years old, I decided I needed to change my life. I've recently lost 35lbs doing keto diet and light exercises. Now I am stuck at my current weight and decided to kick it up a notch. or several notches. I've hired a Personal Trainer, and he threw me on the Barbells. I've never, ever...

Fat, Older, Tired and Work in A Factory. How Do I Fix This?

I'm way over 35. I'll be turning 46 in March. I wish there were an over 45 forum, I looked but didn't find one. I hear a lot about it is really hard if not impossible to build muscle as a middle-aged man. To make matters worse I work in a factory on an assembly line, sometimes 12 hours a day. If...

Cannot get comfortable in bed!

This is a problem that has plagued me for the last year or so since lifting: I cannot get comfortable in bed at night. All of my life I've slept on my front with my hands under the pillow, but now when I do this at least one of my arms tends to go numb (pins and needles). I also like sleeping...

Thumbs down Potential right rhomboid strain/pull, beneath my shoulder blade.

Just so we're clear, everyone has their opinions on stretching before they work out. I 90% of the time pull a muscle when I stretch before a workout and I feel like a fool for stretching upon my arrival the gym. If I do stretch is between workout, but not before the initial workout, it never works...

jeans/shorts that fit good

Does anyone know where I can find shorts and/or jeans that are made to fit someone with large thighs and a fairly small waist? Levi's 560 was a good fit until they stopped making them. I tried Levi's 559 which don't fit quite as good. Every other jeans I try on have to have a waist so big in...

Oh what’s this thread about? Looks interesting!

S’up? If you want to waste some time reading interesting facts you’ve come to the right place! Ok, here’s the first one: Tom Hanks is a bit of a crazed typewriter collector. According to the beloved actor, he’s purchased over 80 of them from around the world since 1978. ‘Why?’ you might ask....

Doing the minimum (...or what the heck happened to grubman?)

It would be extremely arrogant of me to have expected anyone to notice I haven’t been “active” on the forums for 3 1/2 months. But this morning I took the first pictures in that time, and felt an “update” and “explanation” might be interesting. So, while I have many other interests, Lifting...

Lessons learned in a decade of lifting

Thought I'd close the decade by sharing a few things I've learned, many of them right here on this very site. Just over 10 years ago, I was a smoking, boozing, lost person. A whopping 6' 148lbs. Through this journey I've learned how to love myself and appreciate all that life has given me. A lot...

Whats your max rate of muscle gain?

Hey, So I'm into my second year of serious weight training. Last year I did the F5 novice, however I bulked to fast, I was only on about 350cal.day surplus. But I gained a lot of fat and ended up spending 7 months of the year cutting. My overall mass gains weren't that good. Looking back on...

Sugar "bulking"

Just sharing an idea I am going to try. I am long past the day where I can measure 'progress'. I have to look at my training from a yearly standpoint and even then, things are hard to see. Looking back at this past year, I essentially did nothing. My accomplishment was staying in the gym...

LF: Advice/Guidance on Mass

I have a general question and was basically hoping that one you might be able to link or send me to a guide that can provide information on gaining mass. I'm 43, 6'2" and 193 lbs. Over the course of the last 8 months, I changed my diet, began lifting and doing regular cardio, and dropped about 7%...

Motivation Question

Bicep muscle tearing at 50+ WTF

I first ran into a problem doing dumbbell curls when I was in my early 40s. Not an unusual weight, proper form, but maybe not really warmed up. Forearm ripped at the top and a little strip of meat fluttered down like an elastic band. It destabilized the elbow for close to a year but eventually came...

Flaxseed Oil Side Effects

I curious to know if any of you have ever gotten headaches from taking flaxseed oil. My girlfriend started taking it (at my urging) to help lower her cholesterol. She started getting headaches at about 3-4 weeks out so she stopped taking it. I figured rather than waste all those capsules, I'd start...

Caffeine no longer a friend.

Who else as they got older found out that caffeine just doesn't agree with them anymore? I was taking IN-Kaged for a few years as a intra-workout, and at times during or after I would feel like sh*t. Then I would have a coffee in the morning and just feel really off. So I stopped the...
