I will turn 35 this year, and will complete 17 years in the gym (with breaks, Some short, some not so short) in March 2022.
I get lean, then regain fat, have started getting more niggles and little injuries almost every week. have started doing dedicated mobility routines before every workout now, but can’t seem to escape injury … nothing too serious to restrict daily life, enough to spoil workouts though…
need advice on 2 points
Is mobility (stretching, warm-up , foam rolling etc) overrated, or necessary. I feel better personally, but i have read articles from seriously good trainers who say if body asks for extra mobility work, your form and technique probably suck…
are the workouts listed on the site generally targeted at a younger lot??
My goal is to be able to lift till the day I leave the world (hopefully happy)
Friends my age who lift keep eating my head saying don’t lift heavy, but it brings me joy. and probably separates me from the next guy…
I have worked up to a spotter-less squat of 190kg , conv deadlift 230 kg and 90 kg OHP. I avoid the bench .
5’9" (keep hovering around 100kgs, ideally want to be in the low 90s), would take advice on body weight set point via another post!!
all advice welcome…
hope everyone is safe from covid-19
