I have been diagnosed with a partial tendon tear in my right shoulder plus bursitis. It manifests as a general weakness in the shoulder when doing bench presses, flies, etc. Does anyone have experience of going down the surgical route. I’m interested in knowing if the repair is 100% and if full...

I’m chasing a power cage or even squat rack preferably commercial quality but also don’t have a huge budget. And Olympic bars. I think I may be dreaming on the commercial quality but yeah, something not completely garbage..

Just wanted to get some feedback on my training regime. Essentially I'm early thirties had a beer belly but I've done about 6 months of cardio and weights so have stripped it mostly off. I have started working harder on my abs but they only seem to be forming on the upper chest...
Hi all. I'm just at the end of my first week in the gym. I'm 45 and haven't trained for about 15 years so am a little rusty. I thought for the first month I should do some conditioning so I don't injure myself so I'm going 5 days a week, doing very low weights and just doing basically big muscle...

Lifters list posted for the first APU National Championships later this month. Times have changed. Now it's pretty close to 50/50 men and women lifters. Great to see.
These guys are slowly building up a nice range of interviews.
Just listened to episode 19 with Nathan Baxter. Some interesting advice on training for bench press and also what happened to him leading up to a series of massive strokes that left him near death.
My squat day goes for 45min... my bench press workout is 1.5 hrs.
