    Thanks for taking a look. The walking a few days a week should help keep my weight in check.

    And it's good for our most important muscle, the heart.

    I will go by how I feel to determine if I WO on Monday or Tuesday next week. Probably the smart thing To do would be wait until Tuesday, as am old guy it more takes time to heal.
    Jerry - gotta stop thinking of yourself as an "old guy"! Just a little more "seasoned" than you used to be. After all, if you're "old" at 65, what does that make me, at 69 going on 70 - ancient ?? (DON'T answer that!)

    BTW, Jerry, how much sleep are you getting? I found that once I started taking daily naps of 1 to 2 hours to supplement my usual 5-6 hours of nighttime sleep I could usually recover in 48 hours between my three intra-week workouts. I do usually take more than two days between "weeks", though. Usually 3 or 4 days, occasionally a little longer.

    Well in reality I don't feel like an old guy, even though I have went through a lot in life and am a grandfather I am still waiting to feel like a grown up. I usually get 6 1/2 hours of sleep but never have much of a chance for a nap. Once in a while if I sit down on the couch around 2:30 pm I fee like I could doze off but usually something come up that prevents it. Imam going to try and get more sleep over the winter months

    SB sqts wu then 205/4b 190/6b
    Press wu then 85/3 75/5
    Pulldown supinated grip 75/12 110/10 9
    A little progress from last time. I will keep the same weights next time and hope for an increase in the reps.
    Maybe I should have waited another day between workouts.
    I have been dealing with 2 I have been dealing 2 I'll family members this past week, so I wanted to get the work done before something came up to interfere.
    I want to finish the program I have been doing the past few weeks, then may try something Andy Baker described,something like an article Shug posted awhile ago. sqt one week DL the next, same with thing with the BP and press, maybe do an accessory lift each workout.

    No progress on the DL or bench both lifts stayed the same as last workout .Next week I will drop the warm ups a little on DL and bench and try to do 3 sets of 5 reps with a lighter working weight .

    I was sick over the weekend with a cold and couldn't breath so I waited an extra day before working out .
    I decided to drop the weight for the sqts and instead of doing one work set and a bo set I did 5x3 .
    press 40/5 5 60/5 77.5/2 85/3 75/5 5
    Pulldown pronated grip 75/12 110/10 10
    No progress n the press, I am going to keep doing this for another few weeks then I will try using some higher rep work on the presses. Maybe I need a change .

    I thought after a 3 day break I would be ready to WO . I did my normal warmup but even though I had decided to drop the weight for the DL from 260 to 240 it and attempt to do 3 sets of 5 reps it didn't happen . I did 2 reps with 240 and knew it wasn't going to be a good day. Dropped to 225 and did 5 reps . That was it for the deadlifts.
    I didn't even bother to strip the bar for the BP. I did some DB benches and called it a day.
    Time to reevaluate my training . I was thinking of purchasing Andy Bakers Garage Warrior program but not sure if 3 days a week is to much for me. Maybe I just need a break.

    As Kenny Rogers said, you gotta know when to hold 'em and when to fold 'em. Relax, recoup, and regroup and come back at that iron like a bad-ass. Do not let gravity win.

    I am not ready to let gravity win. I know this site is all about linear progression, but I also know that is not always possible . If it were true everyone would be moving huge numbers. I have a book by Brooks Kubik, Black Iron and Grey Hair with many programs designed for older lifters.
    It does recommend cycling the weights, which is something I never really did. I know the Wendler 5 3 1 system does something along those lines.
    I wonder if the new book by Dr. Sullivan and Andy Baker is going to address the issue of losing strength as we age. The only thing I know for sure is that working out will slow down the decline of strength,so that's what keeps me motivated.
