Of course I wouldn't mind making faster progress (let's say, improving from glacial to merely treacly), but things are what they are, and for me they are slow.


    Hope this helps,

    This also helped me very much. Acknowledging very slow progress, using micro weight led to some great lifts for me.

    Also, have you purchased/read the Barbell Rx? It s a great addition to any training library and addresses most if not all of your concerns.

    Could you please give me a few more details?

    Thanks,

    At 41, you are have years of strength gain potential in front of you. Don't push so hard that it becomes something you dislike. I am 50. I'm not gonna be a strength athlete. I know that this is all for me and my wife and kids. I need to be strong enough to stick around and provide for them. I need to be strong enough to care for my wife. I need to maintain myself in a high enough state of "fitness" to remain attractive to my wife and I need to keep myself strong enough and fit enough to feel good about myself. I like getting stronger and like many others I have had progress and setbacks. You will find your fire again.

    Ah! Not aware you could abbreviate Prescription with Rx.
    Anyway, I bought and read the book a few months ago, but thanks anyway for your offer.

    That's my bad...old subliminal Crossfit references popping up in my head...I'll flog myself later

    Seriously though, The Barbell Perscription is excellent, STRONGLY recommend to get/read it
