    As I said recently in the Elderly section, I'm working back into regular training following my loss, and this will be the first entry in my new log. Took it easy the first couple weeks to break-in, then tried to slip into a typical routine (for me). Had much stress and some nagging aches and pains to work through, but have managed to make decent progress the past month. I also turned 61 the first week in January. I'll compare my A workout from Jan. 18 to the same workout from yesterday. I felt better than usual yesterday, though my bodyweight was down (189).

    I just finished my B workout for the week... a good one, even though I've had a slight kink in my low back since I got up. It was also another cold day here in Syracuse, just 5 degrees when I started. As I did last time, I'll compare today's workout to the same one (almost) from a month ago.

    Rev. curl: 55 x 6, 70 x 10
    Notes: On my CGBP, I stop just short of touching my chest, to avoid any rebound effect, and hopefully make the exercise more effective for me.
    As for the grip and forearm work I try to do regularly, I've always had a fascination with grip feats, and been pretty good with them during my lifetime. It's just something I still like to work at. And as some of my fellow geezers can perhaps attest, I was influenced in my youth by one William Smith, one of the stars of the TV series "Laredo", as well as acting in many other movies. He was also featured In Joe Weider's Muscle Builder magazines in the '60s, as well as Strength & Health. What many may not know, is that he also held a Guinness Record for reverse curling his bodyweight! He always was, and probably still is, a very rugged guy, despite now being in his 80s.

    Indeed, William Smith is a bad ass.

    Good to your training is going well . I do remember William Smith in plenty of movies. I thought it was cold here last week,but when I read the temps in your area I can't imagine how it feels to train if you have no heat.

    Today was the only workout I'm gonna' get in this week. I got through my two workouts fine last week, then on Friday my low back decided to ruin my weekend. Don't know if it had anything to do with the kidney stone or not, but I was pretty much laid-up from Friday evening through Monday. Saw my chiro on Saturday and Monday, and my back finally loosened up pretty well by Tuesday night. I probably should have taken it easier, but since this was it for the week, I decided to try some singles to see where I'm at. I'm scheduled to get the kidney stone zapped this Friday morning, hopefully it all goes smoothly!

    Bwt - 190 1/2
    SQ: bwt x 5, 85 x 5, 135 x 3, 175 x 2, 215 x 1, 260 x 1, 280 x 1 (not too easy, but solid and deep)
    Lev. row: 100 x 6, 130 x 4, 165 x 6
    BP: 45 x 5, 85 x 5, 135 x 3, 155 x 1, 175 x 1, 195 x 1, 200 x 1 (all good)
    Pinch grip: 61 1/4 lbs x two 5-second holds
    Rev. hyper: 75 x 15 x 2 sets
    Note: for anyone interested, I found an old interview William Smith did. In it, he said he weighed 163 when he reverse curled the same. I'm surprised he was that light, must have been pretty young at the time, but damned impressive anyway!
