    A giggle from the past. At a state championships, my wife overheard an exchange between our masters coach and some of his friends. In the warmup time our coach, who is a national coach and referee, was getting ready to lift, and one of his friends patted him on the belly ( he looks like father christmas) and said 'what's this?' He replied, 'When you get my age, it's natural to put on weight.' The friend indicated me, and said,'He's not fat.' The coach replied, 'Oh, he's a freak!'

    Thanks for looking at my log. What's your opinion on keeping my weights the same and gradually adding sets.

    Thanks for looking at my log
    Surely you jest, Jerry. There are only a couple of people here of my age and bodyweight that i can learn from. And i look at what you are doing every time i log on.

    Weights the same, adding sets? I think that would would work. Never much done that. What i have done, when i can't handle more weight, is to add a rep or two, until you are doing quite a few more than your target. THEN, you have gotten stronger and can successfuly add weight.
