    ha! We have 3 sons 27yo (he has twins) who don't "train" and don't have "muscles" - yet are strong as hell. I think you do ok Jerry; IDK if I'll be lifting at 70 - I hope so - and I'm only ending my 59th year next month. I did yardwork a few hours Saturday plus not sleeping well (heat wave+humidity) and was completely wiped for DL yesterday. Entire gym's younger (bench spotter was a baby: "60?!! my mom is 57, 58 - you look different than her." I look every year of my age - esp. now with my Pence-white hair.) There's a 70yo gal, mary duffy, I follow on IG. She's an amazing role model. I may compete just to meet her, we'll see.

    YOU are my role model, Deb. I've re-started training a few months ago, weak as h*ll. Glad to see you are still here, working away. I'm trying out a new gym, which has 2 power racks plus one squat stand (got irritated with only one rack at the Y). New gym, though, has the equipment kinda crowded in. Yesterday I was squatting and had a "trainer" teaching his client how to do some weird thing on a smith machine, while standing right next to my rack, where the left end of my bar needed room to move. So far nobody chatting at me during a set, though -- hope that will not happen to you to often!

    Hi Amy... I don't know about a role model, but if nothing else, I'm consistent. I'll try to check out your log here, and update mine when I get time.
    I am ggdebgg on IG, and logging here. (I forget things even though I carry a written program, and it's hard for me to see SS log on my cell.)
    I wish you the best of luck in your strength endeavors!!
