    Nice workouts. I never did any Oly.lifting myself. I know the split requires flexability. I sure lost most of my flexibility in the past few years. I used to stretch a little before lifting and would do more after. I have neglected this and now I can't even do a lunge without any weight. I'm going to work on this.

    Greetings friend Jerry. In past years i saturated myself with Chinese exercises and philosophy. To quote, "The hard and brittle is the Disciple of Death. The soft and pliable is the Disciple of Life."
    They are so not wrong. Just look at the flexibility of the young in comparison to the aged.
    We need to keep on with improving our flexibility, especially the spine. No time to waste.
    Good luck!

    SHOCK ! Walked into gym and the squat rack was gone! Replaced by a 25 foot long linear universal machine. And a friggin smith machine.

    You nailed it Jerry. The owner told me she wants to get more men : and men like to do bench presses : and she's not strong enough to spot them. [Runner - trim and nice shape - weak AF]. So she got a smith machine so they can do it on their own. She has taken a lot of my advice on what equipment is needed - bumper plates, toast rack plate storage. But not the power rack that i told her is much better than the smith machine.
