    When i got hit in the shoulders, my whole body sort of froze up. It was a struggle to stand up after sitting in a chair, and getting out of the bath was a max effort. I couldnít squat half way down with no weight. My flexible body was just ó gone. With poor appetite my bodyweight went way down.
    Build up was gradual. I am so weak. The weights i used for warmups are now beyond me. My weight has come back to normal, but i canít handle any decent lift. I will be 83 next month, maybe aging has caught up with me.
    But Iíll take what I can get.

    In answering your question about the Super Slow lifting you sure won't be able to use anything near what you ate used to doing. 50% seems like a good estimate. But getting 4 to 6 reps will sure make you feel like you worked. Not to sure about any strength gains, but I didn't seem to loose any.

    Hi Jerry. That sounds like what i expected. Sure a blessing to someone suffering joint issues as there is no sudden shock anywhere. When i get old, i'm gunna do it.

    I am just hoping to make it 11 more years so I can be 82. Great job and keep going.
