    Hi Jerry. I'm a real mess. Weak as a 9 year old girl after lockdown, and progressing at a snail's pace. It is real interesting to see if a soon to be 80 year old with poor genetics can make any meaningful progress.

    Thanks Jerry, but they're not that great. Got long arms so i suck at bench press, but good at deadlifts. The reps are not touch and go, but putting the bar down for a reset, regrip, each rep.

    Why, thank you Fred. Any compliment causes me excessive pleasure.
    Really i'm not good. my workout pattern follows Starr's Madcow. Successive sets with heavier weights, so things don't get drastic till the end. And then my recovery is so slow that twice a week is it.
    Still, if you think it's good, I will bask in your kind opinion.

    I'm with Fred, you are impressive. Twice a week training is a good plan for strength. When my son was in his early 20's we trained that way, and both of us did well.

    Hi Jerry. We the "Last of the Mohicans". The only ones on this site looking for the minimum effective dose : something we can recover from and get a bit stronger without busting ourselves up.
    My early training was informed by Peary Rader, he of Breathing Squats. Also of the opinion that twice a week was best.
