    Squats 0x5 45x5,5,5 first actual squats to depth in a long time
    Split squats 40x5
    Airdyne 30 min


    Pizzadad: balance is a problem on that movement, so is flexibility, lets just say mine are "art". I'd also imagine your shoulder would be an issue for a while longer.

    Sometimes you've got to work yourself out of a hole.

    It sure is tough to stay motivated to lift when the weights rarely move up. Seems Rippetoe was correct in some of his writing when he tells about lifting and maintaining when your older
    Keep up the good work.

    BrooklynJerry: Thanks!

    TWEAKS
    The 5 week old bruise on my shin has still not healed. We've ruled out blood clot and tendon damage, just a bad bruise healing slowly on an old guy.
    A self assessment shows a mixed bag of really aweful, to almost tolerable. My schedule allows for 30 minutes of something in the morning. Later in the
    day never seems to happen.

    TLDR: shifting my workout schedule slightly.
    Since 01/2021 (age 67) I've been doing a lift a day: on a 5 day cycle: Press / Halted Dead / Pull Downs / Rack Pull / Bench / Squat

    While better than nothing, it is what got me where I am. Which is disappointed with most of my lifts and not recovering from injury fast enough and an Unhealthy / slow walking speed.
    I recently added a session timer / 30 minutes of airdyne, timer running between and during lifts. I found that if I went too many days in a row, I tended to tweak something.

    NEW PLAN: 9 DAY CYCLE: (age 70)
    Squat / bench / NorticTrak 12 min
    Dead / press / NorticTrak 12 min
    Squat / pull down / Nortictrak 12 min

    In the last couple weeks I've finally gotten the range of motion to do an actual squat, but the weight is pathetic.
    No more halted deads and rack pull, and added to the cycle are full dead an extra squat and 3x nortictrak sessions (like an off day)
    I've probably never been more than about 70% of the way to "complete LP" potential.

    My objective is to be more physically reliable, rehab better, and be able to catch a run away 2 year old.

    Believe me Cheesepuff I understand how you feel.When I look back over my log I see things going backwards on most lifts.i guess the thing to do is not compare yourself with others. I believe that if you do a lift and the weight fells heavy to you and you work it hard you will get some benefit from it.
    As for the injury healing, a fee years ago I injured the inside of my leftc ankle, it was swollen and discolored and took months to heal.

    BrooklynJerry: Thanks, you are spot on as usual.
    It is easy to understand these things for "others" but when it happens to "you", that is completely different. LOL.

    Lost a brother in law this week. When I started lifting 8 years ago, he was in much better shape than me.
    I gave him the blue book and Sully's book, which he returned unread. He would have outlasted me had I not
    lifted. We were born the same year.

    I am reminded of a video by Sully, "the importance of what we do".
