    Thanks for the advice guys. There's a lot of good information there. The only problem now is what to do with all this milk, V8 juice, and cocaine that I bought :scratch:

    I can't argue with that, but I'm surprised so many of you don't think that age has an effect on fat storage (notice I never said metabolism).

    It seemed obvious to me that there is a fundamental...

    Least unhealthy way to crash diet

    I've started lifting again. The only difference between now and the other ten times I've re-started lifting in my life is that I'm not skinny anymore. I'm overweight.

    I'm about 5'11" and 180 lbs...

    No more machine curls for me.

    I'm thinking of having an iso day once a week just to mix it up, and in that case I might use some machines, but in general I'm all about the free weights.

    Thanks guys.

    I'm coming up on month three of 2x per week at gym (though it's a pretty strenuous work out).

    I don't do any cardio, but I've already lost most of my gut (unless I'm sitting), and...
  6. Benching and thumbs: Supposed to wrap thumbs around the bar for safety?

    I read something that made sense once, but don't ask me where.

    You are supposed to wrap your thumbs around the bar to prevent the bar from falling onto you if you lose control.

    I'm looking at...

    Just wanted to report back and say that dropping the 3rd set of curls for some deadlifts was some great advice.

    The compound exercises I do now include bench presses, deep squats, chin ups, and...

    Thanks, I will drop my 3rd set of curl exercises for something else as per your recommendations!
  9. I have an odd routine, and I could use some suggestions

    After a 1+ year hiatus I am back at the gym.

    My primary goal is to gain strength, but (for the first time in my life) I also want to burn some fat.

    About 11 years ago I was just starting to hit...

    I guess I can't really be sure my caloric intake is the same especially since...



    ... and I drink quite well these days.
  11. Why did I get fat? I need some help understanding how the body stores fat.

    Isn't it true that some people don't overeat but can be heavier, due to genetics, than someone who eats much more?

    My whole life people would comment on how thin I was.

    This bothered me, so I...

    Sensei,

    Loved your video about squatting I saw on here.

    Minor Knee Injury while Full Squatting

    I had tendonitis in my knee, and after the accute phase I stopped doing leg press (which I must have been doing wrong), and started carefully full squatting. It got better right away. Then I hurt...
