  1. Elbow Injury

    Hi Guys, I have been lifting now for five months, getting stronger and slightly bigger etc. I have noticed (in the last three months) I started to get a pain in left elbow which hinders a number of exercises I do with free weights. I went to the Dr and he said it was tennis elbow. I think he was wrong and I may have a type of arthritis as the pain feels more at the joint and is worse in the mornings and at night, plus my finger joints seem to click but no pain there. I basically cannot do any hammer curl type exercise and some times can hardly lift my elbow with any weights towards my shoulder, but can do normal barbell curls with no problems. My question is does anyone else have a similar issue and how do you cope with it, as it really bothers me and should I go back and get x-rays etc.
  2. 40 is the new 30

    Thanks for the input and info guys. Much appricated. One month down the track and i'm lifting two-three times what I started on. A PT took me through the gym but "she" had no idea I had gone off and done my own thing. I realise being able to bench 60kg is nothung to you guys, from only being able to do 30kg a month ago is good for me. I also started using my fitnesspal and trying to hit 2500 calories a day, as well started on Mutant Mass half size shakes daily and twice when Im lifting to meet my target intake. I typically still doing upper body twice a week, legs twice a week and cardio two-three times. Basically I am keeping to it an hour. I have put on approx 2-3 KGs of muscle but also lost some fat so maybe its even more. I notice it some areas of normal day to day activities. Thanks again and i will updatte again in a month. I will try to find a before pic of a pasty white skinny bald dude.

    Hi Guys, I just hit 40 and joined back up with the GYM, I am naturally very weak and look at six months pregnant (male by the way), currently do a little running but want to build strength and muscle while losing the fat. I always was very skinny to my late 30's where I starte to put on weight. I weigh 82KG @ 1.71CM so reasonably short. I am a little unsure what I need to start on, I started taking protein shakes in the morning as well as The Ripper to cut fat. I have yet to vary my diet and don't eat a lot of crap but i know I do not eat enough to build any size. I will start lifting next week when membership starts. You guys probably see these questions everyday Any tips to point in right direction please in regards to putting on quailty musscle and lose the fat at the same time. Thanks. Quentin.
