    Hi John,
    look forward to hearing about the year recap and your new scheme.

    I am now doing an upper/lower split using a modified conjugated. I like it so far. easier on my joints. Time will tell if I am getting stronger. So far based on my log I am. see how it goes. It is too earlier for me to weigh in it.

    Greetings Jerry. Thank you for your support. Impressed you have reduced 20 lbs. Not easy at our ages. I used to be able to drop weight in a snap. Can't now.

    Hi Louis. Yeah, you're going great guns. Hope you can get right back to your best ever. But even if you can't, the aging coefficient will put you right up with the best in the country.
