    Hey John,
    Happy New Year to you.
    I remember on the other site when you lost access to the gym. I miss the HardGainer blog.

    What is truly remarkable is how you learned to adapt.

    Nice work today

    LOUIS
    As in times past, you blow me away with your training volume, and intensity, and exercise weights.
    If I was a young fellow I would be stung into "doing something".

    I love this kind of training John. I am always envious of Oly lifters. As a kid I would watch the olympics and marvel at how dams strong and powerful Oly lifters are. As much as I love Powerlifing I would love to learn weight lifting. My time has passed this stage of life.

    Well, you are right, Louis. It's a young man's game. To excel at Olympic Weightlifting you need speed, explosive power, flexibility, balance, coordination, and honed technique all in massive amounts.
    And you and I are going to do jack shit on the National stage, at our stage of life with all of those attributes faded away.
    I began my masters career when I retired, age 64. Started with 2 years training the technique at a small country gym (no bumper weights or platform) before I went to the state WL Association for assessment and permission to lift. Over many years I set pretty well all the state records in age groups and bodyweight classes from about 165lbs to 200 lb, setting more than 80 records.
    I think all the jumping around gives a sort of athleticism and fitness you can't find with bodybuilding and strength lifting, so I enjoy the training.

    Hi John,

    Very impressive to be doing Olympic lifts at 81! I got into Olympic lifting early in life because I was born in the town where the strongest man to walk the earth decided to build his youth home in Vidalia, GA, Paul Anderson. He won the 1956 Melbourne Olympics. I started off with an oak tobacco stick, the stick you string tobacco on to cure it, and some concrete blocks. I was about 10 at this time. We moved to Savannah, GA when I was 15 and I went to Howard Cohen's gym. Howard taught me the correct way to lift. I got real good at the military press and clean and jerk but the snatch was not my thing. I could do the lift but more times than not I would loose it behind me! I didn't get to train long enough to perfect the snatch.

    Reading your journal inspires me to train harder and to keep going when I get to thinking, " why the hell are you doing this"? So keep working out and writing in your journal.

    Jerry

    Louis! Jerry!
    If I took Your squat weights off the rack, I'd be sat on the floor whether i wanted to or not.
    You are not in the springtime of life, and have a long list of medical problems and injuries.
    If i had them, i wouldn't be going into competitions. Yeah, i would train because fish gotta swim, birds gotta fly, but only to get as able bodied as i could.
    That you can do those awesome weights is astounding.
