    moved my training log from 60yr old male, lifting for years without ss

    It's a little outdated since I turned 62 on 10/2/2016. 5'9", 180-184 lbs. I was a hair over 5'10" one time.
    I've lifted for over 40 years, starting strength for two, played baseball, football, track, and club level rugby well into my 30s, 3 marathons, last marathon 2009, and play tennis.
    Starting Strength is a wonderful program, helped me recover from a really nasty right leg meniscus double tear 7/14/2014 and return to playing tennis at a decent level 3 days a week. Any given day my dead lift is over 400 lbs, bench 215+/-, press 155+/-, and can front squat 225 for reps. I wrap my right knee for heavier lifts. My advice is keep pushing yourself, progress is slow but steady. Expect setbacks, they are part of life, and make you who you are. Like Rocky said, It's about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward. I typically do a couple of seated leg extensions up to 120lbs x 6 reps and some leg press 8 plates total x 15 reps once a week prior to dead lifts. I don't record these sets.

    Chin-up: 8,8,8.

    Straight leg dead lift: 45x5,95x5,120x3,140x5,155x3.
    Clean (use 165 as 1RM, these are not geezer-friendly exercises) 120x5,140x3,155.
