Jay stick to Leg press

I had not planned on doing regular squats. I thought I would try some light hack squats just to see how they felt; what do you think? I also intended to do high volume leg extensions with low resistance and doing each leg independently. There is no way I can do lunges right now. I barely have enough balance to stay upright on two legs much less one.  Huh

Thanks Jay.  I booked to see the doctor again tomorrow morning.  I feel that the antibiotics weren't strong enough to rid me of this chest infection.  My body is set at a higher level after that 18 months of being on them constantly when I had the sinus infections.  They don't work on me anymore unless very high strength. 
You feel better you seem a bit more upbeat.

My opinion only. Squats are the best thing you can do no matter the weight slow and under control if you can get your balance back. They fixed a knee issue I had from playing football, extensions only irritated the condition. It's a natural movement however if you can't do them as donny suggested leg press.

Thanks for the advice. I know that squats are the be all end all exercise. I cannot wait to get back to doing them. What worries me is the torn meniscus. Once I get this resolved, I hope to get back to squatting. One thing I remember about doing them is how pumped they get you. Yes they tax your energy like crazy while doing them, but afterwards you feel like a warrior.

Incidentally, I worked delts today.

Weight 206

Again, I won't detail the routine because it is just the same routine I have posted it before. On all but one exercise, I used the same resistance I used three weeks ago which I think is pretty great. I actually worked them to failure on a couple of exercises. On all the other movements, I maintained the resistance and still concentrated on form.

Delt day is also abs day. Since I don't worry about resistance when doing abs, they were no problem. Of course, I do high reps on these exercises. I did notice that I was somewhat burnt out from the delt/trap exercises, but I soldiered on anyway. Thursday's routine is the longest one of the entire week. You should be proud of me. I am of myself.

Took a nap this afternoon and missed the gym. Tomorrow I will work chest. The problem was that we woke up too damn early so we could attend a breakfast meeting with fellow retirees. I am never up as early as 7:30 a.m. Come 4:00 p.m. and I was ready for bed.  Wink

My wife made the most delicious Asian chicken salad for dinner:

Chicken
Shredded Napa and red cabbage
Chopped green onions
Water chestnuts
Shredded carrots
Fresh ginger
Asian sesame salad dressing....with a little kick.

French roll w/butter

This was a healthy and yummy meal.

Later we will have peach and lemon sorbet.

It has been unusually humid for this part of the country the past few days. I did some gardening and was drenched in a way that suggested I'd taken a shower in my clothes. For some of you this may not seem unusual, but I rarely sweat.

I am on my weekend "rest" too. Instead of hitting the gym, I worked in the yard for 5 hours.

As payback for cooking such a great dinner last night, I am taking my wife out for dinner tonight. She's been wanting to go to this Portland barbecue restaurant she saw on show on television called Podnah's Pit. It is way across town, but what the heck, I like barbecue too. http://www.podnahspit.com/ Hope it is delicious.

Those are good no doubt. Negative dips are good as well once I had trouble with chest I did negative only dips on the nautilus machine 240 with a 25 pinned on the side those worked very well.

Prime how are your joints at your age ankles knees etc.?

Until recently, they were fine.

Sometime back, I started having issues with sciatica, which now affects my entire right leg and foot. Initially, it would flare up only when I was driving long distance and I could relieve the cramping in my right hamstring by getting out of the car doing some, squats, toe touches and often just by walking some. More recently, an MRI revealed that I have a torn meniscus in my right leg. I've seen a doctor regarding this and will probably have arthroscopic repairs done shortly. It seems possible to me that my gait is off because of the pain from the torn meniscus which somehow has aggravated the sciatic nerve causing cramping in my calf, pain in my shins and numbness throughout my right foot.

In other words, my right leg is a mess right now.

What I have which is definitely age related and perhaps somewhat genetic since my mom had arthritis pain is osteoarthritis in my hands, back and knees. I doubt this condition was caused by weight training. If fact, I think weight training has actually helped keep it at bay. Supposedly, resistance training is recommended for people who suffer from arthritis.
