    I TRY to keep up but its hard for me to remember whats in my own log these days..LOL. I wish I had a good answer for you, Jerry, all of those have worked for me at some point; if you try something that DOESN'T work, you can always change it. And, you could ask in the programming forum or just ask Adam.

    It sure is true,getting older is not for the faint. I sure used to be able to due things every day that now if I'm lucky can do once a week. In the BB RX and Black Iron Grey Hair books they do try to impress upon us that recovery is key to any gains as we get older.I just have to let this sink in,and remind myself I can't play with the big boys any longer.

    The two big takeaways I have about recovery for masters are:

    1. You need more protein than you probably think.

    2. Do whatever it takes to get a good night's sleep.

    Valuable reminders. Wrt you question as to micro-load or do back off sets, I guess there are so many options we need to just try one for a couple of week. As Doc Sully wrote geezers are not as homogeneous a group as the young ones. I like the idea of a back off set rather than micro-loading since you don't have to hunt around for small plates. Good luck Jerry.

    Sat Sept 1.
    Thanks Charlo and Pete, your advice is.always welcome.
    I cut the grass of a large yard Friday after noon after loading furniture in a dumpster. Friday night I got some painful cramps in both thighs,I had to jump up off the couch and massage them as I walked it off.Not the first time this happened.It felt like a heart attack in the legs.
    I wanted to WO on Sat.So I did my regular warm up on the rower and Rev.Hyper, then did ;
    SB sqt, bar/10 95/5 5 5 quickly
    Press bar/10 65/5 75/3
    90/1. I had thought I would be doing 3 sets of 3 with 90 since last time I did 85 for 5 three sets across,but didn't happen so I dropped the weight and did
    80/5 75/5 70/8
    EZ bar curl thick grips 65/8 8 8
    Trap bar SLDL 135/15

    You sound much more active outside of the gym than I am. I can tell you that I don't underestimate (and perhaps overestimate) the effect yard work will have on my training. Never want to do it the day before a workout. I try to fit it in the same days I train, but afterwards, like conditioning.

    Well I've done physical work all my life. The yard work in the heat we've been having here in NY did take its toll. I find since I retired I've been busier then when I worked.But as Sully said the worst thing you can tell an older person is to " take it easy".
