    A New Program

    I am trying a version of a wave cycle for the bench. You bench 3x/wk, doing a 5-4-3-2-1 workout each time. Each workout increases the weight 5 lbs each set. The next workout that week, you start 5 lbs higher, so your top single weight increases 10 lbs over the week. The next...

    Politics And Lifting Don't Mix

    A local officeholder died of cancer in August with several years left on her term, and state law required a successor to be elected at the November general election. Against my better judgment, I assumed a large role in one of the candidate's campaigns. This decision basically...

    Funny How It Works

    Iv had a weight bench since 7th grade. When I was younger I had no clue about fitness and diets and all that. I was husky and the football coach wanted me to play. I thought I could JUST lift weights and I would get lean and healthy. Boy was I wrong. I didnt have any older...

    Want to Start Again

    I got back into weightlifting

    and exercise in general about a year ago, 10 years after I gave it up after my dedication to it dwindled over a couple of years. My first year was going well until I tweaked my back and ended up doing a little physical therapy to get myself back where I needed to be. I gained...

    Shoulder Issue

    I've been having a problem with my left shoulder. A few weeks ago, it was just some mild discomfort. It has deteriorated to be a severe burning pain that I also feel in the left trap and tricep. It does not affect my lifting, but ordinary actions, like pulling off a t-shirt...

    Layoff

    I couldn't lift for about three weeks because I was getting ready for and doing a jury trial. I lost 9 lbs of bodyweight during the trial (I eat very little in trial). Now that I am starting to lift again, I am astounded and depressed at how much weaker I am.

    Bench

    I had been doing a "wave" bench workout. You do bench 3 x wk. Each workout is a 5-4-3-2-1, going up 5 lbs each set; and raising everything 5 lbs for the next workout of the week. In the next week you start with the weights you used for the middle workout the week before. So...

    Dead End :(

    I didn't get into weight lifting til I first got out of high school. I had a lot of big friends that were into it before then though. I have a really high metabolism and don't put on weight very well, so when I first started weight lifting it was so hard to put on any weight...
