    How is the Corona virus affecting life down in your area. Its sure changing things here. All this talk about how its dangerous for "old" people over 70 is annoying. Keep up the good work.

    Thank you so much Jerry and Codger.
    This country got straight on the rising threat, and prepared itself for what was coming. So i expect there will be no personal danger - just a pain in the butt that i can't get to gym, or mandarin lessons, or mahjong, or volunteering, and maybe our paid for trip to europe in July.
    Such is life.
    I hope you and our friends in the USA escape the spread.

    Thurs 26-3-2020.

    At home training, first experiments ...
    A half hour brisk walk.
    Some trial exercises with my 16.6 lb dumbell. Each rep with a dead stop at top and bottom, and at the end of every set, multiple short range burns.
    SLHR.
    Pushups.
    One Arm Curls.

    In the evening - Posing, Stretches, Yoga, Balancing, Abdominal Isolations, Bellows Breathing, Yang Lu-chan Tai Chi form.
    Every day i will put stuff in, and experiment and adjust.

    Well, the Corona Virus crashed my 6 month training block, about a week out from its end.

    This year my training plan was 3 months R+R light, while testing the year’s plan, and then going for it for the rest of the year.

    The heavy is on hold, until they let me back in the gym & at it.

    Major target is to push the 20 rep Olympic Deadlift as high as possible. Also I am doing High Bar Back Squats this year, with different rep ranges, again to the best of my ability.

    I am determined to get the Clean and Press to a respectable level again, bearing in mind I did 15 lb above bodyweight when I was at my best.

    ……

    So, my progress last year was sort of alright for a 79 year old, though some things were disappointing.

    Breathing Squat 20 with 90 k (198 lb) to 20 with 110 k (242 lb)

    Olympic Deadlift 5 with 85 k (187 lb) to 5 with 115 k (253 lb). If you don’t know this animal, it is a power clean that stops thigh high. Its for building pulling power for Olympic lifts by strengthening the muscles that do it.

    Clean and Press. 35 k for 5 to 40 k. 37.5 k for 3 to 42.5. 45 k for a single to nothing better. Bugrit!

    Flexing exercises ….

    Wide grip lat machine, 100 lb 2 sets of 10 to 132 lb for 7.

    Palms up lat machine, 110 lb for 10 to 132 for 7.

    One arm curl, 10 k 2 sets 10 to 14 k for 7.

    Triceps pressdown, 80 lb for 10 to 100 lb for 8.

    ……

    In 2019 my lower back was always sore from the Olympic lifts, power cleans, power snatches, high pulls, breathing squats, and Olympic Deadlifts.

    So this year I spread things out. It is Squat OR Deadlift once a week, and only 2 heavy exercises each workout day. A big variety of exercises on a rotating cycle of whole body routines.
