  1. Wrist pain on bench

    Haha, I don't think you are a wuss! I don't know how long you've had the problem. If it's only a few sessions on a certain movement it's not a big deal I would say but if it persist - check it up with your GP.
  2. Wrist pain on bench

    Strange, i don't know what the problem can be if you are benching at that level :(. Do you experience pain with wrist wraps aswell?
  3. Wrist pain on bench

    Could it be just that you are not used to the weights? I also get wrist pain sometimes for bench but i just try to warm up my wrist by shaking and turning them around so it's usually no problem.
  4. Breaking 90 Degree In Squat Problem

    Third world squats everyday and before every session until you can keep depth.
  5. Back on the track (hopefully)

    Hey Guru! I remember you :). Welcome back!
  6. preworkouts

    Awesome writeup @Wanderlei!
  7. Nice to Meet You!

    Welcome James! Strong squat i must say, is it done raw?
  8. preworkouts

    My pre workout meal is around one hour before my gym session and consists of: 2 dl oats, 2 dl protein powder, 2 teaspoons of creatine and 2 bananas. This is around 700 calories. I also take the same drink directly after my workout.
  9. As you also say you already increased size in 2 months which is very good.
  10. It takes a 70 year old about 3 months weight lifting to regain their strength that they had in their 20s according to several studies. It's never to late to start lifting, remember that! Considering your question you will gain muscle, but not as fast as a 20 year old of course. Start a log here and we can help you reach your goals! My brother started lifting six months ago and has progressed in size and is 45 years old. My grandmother is 84 and her husband is 90 and they go to the gym to keep their strength in check and protect their bodies from getting to weak.
  11. Crunches! Not Feeling The Burn, Help!

    Can you try doing ab wheel workouts, perhaps its easier to feel contact for you?
  12. Warming up for a one rep max

    @Miked96Thanks for you input Mike. I usually do 95% before i try my 1 rm but as you say that could easily fatigue one to much. Your rule with 90% before testing max sounds more reasonable.

    @FerrousMaverick Thanks
  14. The New Approach To Training Volume

    @GanymedeAre you referring to the Avarage F'n Program? If so i would say just continue using it as it does not really matter if you do 5x5, or 3x5 as long as you are progressing. When you are progressing you are also getting stronger which is the main goal of strength training. Do not overcomplicate things. Theres a good saying for this: "An average training program done with intensity and effort will always lead to more results than the best program done half assed." -Christian Thibaudeu
  15. Weight Lifting Belt?
