    I have crossed the Rubicon and am now into my 7th decade.

    Squats: 240 for 8 sets with 3-3-2-2-2-2-2-2 reps. I rigged a green bungee cord to get back my depth in the squat. I managed to make it move by going deep enough a little over half the reps.

    Hammer Curls: 130 for 3 sets of 5.

    I did. It was an entirely ordinary day of doing all the things I like to do. That, a cake, and a card from DB and OD were all that I wanted.

    Picking back up some conditioning tools I've neglected lately. Three sets of 3 for sprints, kettlebell swings, and medicine ball slams followed by speed bag, crunches, and heavy bag.

    The hamstring is doing fine, although my lumbars have been letting me know they are there after yesterday's squats.

    Bench Press: 190 for 8 sets with 3-3-2-2-2-2-2-2 reps. I did all the reps with the competition command pauses. Also, I have been using 25 lb. plates under my feet for better leg drive.

    Close Grip Incline Press: 150 for 3 sets of 3.

    Hammer Row: Sets of 5, 320-325-330.

    Got some Jujitsu Zoom in. Today we worked on club technique in combination with counters to joint locks on the wrist and arms. Along with a few blocks transitioning into chokes and strangles. Finally, there some exercises in developing a sense of ki energy flow and sensing that energy, and then directing it through your own body and outward. Some of that wasn't too hard to pick up on. Other stuff, not so much.

    Some random easy conditioning today. My left knee (and that's the one I DIDN'T injure in Judo at age 19) was very uncomfortable yesterday, along with my lumbars feeling crispy. No idea why. So it was upper body only stuff today. Speed bag, medicine ball toss, SciFit and rower (arms only), and heavy bag.

    I decided to re-introduce some long neglected things from conditioning this morning. So I did what passes for sprints at age 70, speed bag, crunches, handball, heavy bag with rear elbow and rear hammer fist strikes.
