As the saying goes it's always something, lol.  Having hip joint pain on one side like a German Shepard. Wonder if it's a temp injury?  You have been doing squats and deads since King Tut. Do you have any hip problems? I think I'm getting it from Deads, squats and leg presses. Sometimes grinding out the reps in the leg press I can feel the pressure in the joint. Wonder if I'm going to have to work around those great exercises?  Only been bugging me for a week. Hope the vet doesn't have to put me down. 

Think light weights and high reps is something to try for joint preservation?

Too much stress.  You are over-doing it.

Running, walking, lifting.  Too much.

His problem is running /walking with a bad posture. This will cause as will weight training a disbalance if training dominant muscles too frequently.

I hear you brother.....getting older sux!!

My hips are OK but I have three bulging discs and arthritis in my lower back and in my neck.

I think Donnys idea is a good one..........I pre-exhaust quads now as my knees were screaming on Leg Presses but Henda suggested I do them last, and it`s been great so far.....just a bit lighter poundage wise but it feels heavy since my legs are wiped out from all the prior work I`ve done.

Sounds like a great idea. Do leg extensions and leg bicep work first so a lighter weight can be used for legs in the big exercises. I knew you would have good advices. Any guy that is in their 60's and claim they are okay after exercising hard  for over 40 years probably trained like a pussy. There are casualties of war. Hope your back feels better.

I hate to say it bro,but I can feel his pain,though I`n no near as bad as he is,thank God.

I had Colitus a few years ago and lost 40 pounds,and I`m a small guy.....I thought I was a goner.....I looked like I died and forgot to lay down......AGAIN!!  :D

Then I had Gall Bladder issues not too long ago.................unre al,gross symptoms can`t get into it, but it was funky!

As soon as these passed I was fine.....no surgery though the Gall Bladder surgeon told me it was probably nothing, but we should remove it.......YEAH OK YOU DYKE TWAT.

Flare ups come and go and a few and far between, but when they rear their ugly heads,training as well as eating goes out the window......strictly impossible bro.

Back to "normal" now,my usual old perverted hard training self.

Damn Test is making me chase my wife around the house with a hard on!   LOL  ;D

Shoulders + Abs:

DB Lateral Raises - 5 X 25,12,12,12,15

Face-Pulls - 5 X 25,12,12,12,15

Crunches 5 X Failure

I`m liking these type of workouts,....may do them again with variations next week also before returning to my more traditional stuff.

Gonna` start adding more detail and the little nuances I do to exercises which I personally think makes them more effective.

Reading old-timers/Rich`s log is great.......very informative and since I am no longer posting my training on that clusterfuck of the G+O I`ll get more in depth here.

Some guy says to me today....."all done huh Tim,that was fast,I replied I did 14 total sets in about 30 minutes.....he says"well at least your showing up....told him my standard reply to the deadwood in the gym which he is a member of.....nice guy but knows jackshit..anyway I ran the old if we were the same strength and did the exact same workout for the same number of sets and reps but it took you 2 hours to complete but I did it in 50 minutes,I trained a lot harder than you did because I did it in far less time.

He looked at me clueless....then I said some guys are here 3 hours a day and do nada.....he agreed but little did he know,I was refferring to him......fucking mere mortal has the audacity to question me!!!!!!!!!!!111    LOL  ;D
