no Problem at all..

Deadlifts 140
Squats 125
Bench press 105
shoulder press 60

not a very good bench press or shoulder press but heavy for me. The weights are in KGs.

Conversion to pounds (rounded to the nearest number)

Deadlifts 375
Squats 335
Bench press 281
Shoulder press 161


Looks impressive to me. I'm lifting pussy weights by comparison at this point. Give me a few months and I hope to be moving some weight at the gym. I don't expect to be a power lifter anytime soon. I have always sacrificed heavy resistance in favor of good form to avoid injuries.

my weight Drops with supersets...however the stimulus is there. i am enjoying just doing Basic lifts at the Moment. i like supersets too as you know. I have always tried to stay in condition and big muscles were never important, Speed,stamina, skils. School just opened here in Wing chun so i am going to go and see how it is. Driving to Hannover is time consuming and a good friend knows the Trainer there.

Where are you in relation to Hannover? Are you north, south, east of west of Hannover. How far are you from Hannover? If I make the trip this summer to may granddaughter's wedding. I will be about 3.5 hours driving time south of Hannover.

You are located about 4hrs by car from Uettingen, where I will be for the wedding. Celle appears to be a delightful place.

quick question for you guys......


I have been training 20 years now......I am currently 40......but I feel training has gotten better as I have aged......better pumps.....better mind/muscle connection.


some people say that as they get older they don't feel the same way they used to in the gym.....they think their workouts were better at a younger age......I say the workouts get better with age.


let's discuss this.

I believe that I am more focused than I was when l was younger. Aside from a few recent distractions and health issues, I am able to devote more time and energy to my workouts.

Sorry I have been MIA but just buried both in-laws......at 57 my workouts have never been better. I am able to focus more and don't worry about ego like when I was in My 20s and 30s. I don't worry about weight anymore just the pump and slow steady reps with a squeeze.
