Inspirational, thanks!  I am down a lot in bodyweight but still train 3 or 4 times a week for about 15 minutes.  Off today due to problems.   Thanks again for the inspiration, my friend!

Thank you, Sir Scott.

I hope you are doing ok.  Glad to hear you are training. 

Are you able to stand while training?

I am going to train later today and I think I saw on here in another thread where your spoke of the benefits of barbel rows so I think I will give those a go with 40 or so pounds and maybe 5 sets of whatever I can get up to ten reps per set.   I get dizzy sometimes and fall so this will be a challenge!

If I can't do them safely I do have a vertical bench press that doubles as a rowing setup and it supports my lower legs quite well allowing me to not worry as much about falling.  Life goes on and is still good, my brother!

Five sets of machine rows done in superset fashion with five sets of vertical bench presses.  Ugh...50 pounds on the machine which probably translates to a real poundage of 25 or so lbs.

And this is why bhanky is built better than me, LOL!  In all seriousness, good for him.  ;D 

I tried to do a barbell row instead but fell forward but as I had chosen to do them in front of my lat pulldown  machine when I felt myself falling I dropped the bar and fell toward the seat on the pulldown and grabbed it. YES!  Saved myself on that one, LOL!

On Monday I did supersets of Tricep Pushdown with DB Curls.  The weight was 20 lbs for both exercises and I completed 5 sets of 10 reps.  I am normally sore two days later but nothing so far.  Well...My ego is sore, LOL!

Thanks, Nat!

Excellente Sir Scott.

Can you do conventional deadlifts?  Start with just the bar or light dumbbells and add a few lbs a week. 

3x5.

Bhanky is superior to all  of us.  :D

Yes, bhanky has us all whooped!  I ;D

I have to see some doctors today but will look into deadlifts with an empty bar as mine weighs maybe 10 to 15 lbs.?  It is one of those standard 1" X 6' bars.    I tried to go to work yesterday but did not last for long.  My job has been good to me and my family and I might retire later this year as physiclly I am no longer me.   ;D

I used to have a small poster of Steve Reeves in my garage gym.  It came off the wall and on the other side was a picture of two women in string bikinis.  My wife did not like that and told me to throw it away.  I agreed with her and pointed out that I only used the Reeves side for inspiration but threw it away to appease her.

Time to get one of bhanky!

Be well, brother!
