    Not really, Jerry. I have a long history of hi rep squats. Once i could move tremendous singles in comparison with what i could rep with. Not now tho. I guess my body is turning feminine as i lose my fast twitch fibres.

    I wouldn't say there is anything "feminine" about your body.
    I used to train under the eye of the recently departed Dr. Ken Liestner, he was a big proponent of high Rep sqts. You can Google his name if you haven't heard of him
    I'm sure not as strong as I was, I look back at my old logs from 20 years ago and see what were my warm ups are now my work sets.
    Can't stop father time, just fight him a bit

    Oh yes, Jerry. I read all his stuff in Hardgainer, and was much inspired. It is a shame he died so young. Perhaps due to his fighting and lifting injuries, and minimal sleeping. At any rate, he was one of the Greats, and it would have been a priviledge to have known him.

    Ah, well. Don't matter. We work with what we have, and where we are. Maybe we can inch our way up a bit. Training has to be the most fascinating game there is.
