Do you find Stiff deads/Romanian Deads and hypers better than just doing Deadlifts ? With your back and legs you could lift a good weight. I know you Zero in on muscle Groups Steve. I know it depends on Ham glutes but still.

I am allowed to train again but only every few days and with very light weights in the range of 10  to 45 or so pounds for free weights and up to 100 pounds on such things as the lat pulldown machine and machine bench press. 

Four sets of 15 reps on lat pulldown.

Four sets of 15 reps on Smith machine rows.

Four sets of one arm DB rows, 15 reps each set/arm.

Four sets of curls with a straight bar.

Four sets of Scott ( Grin) bench curls, 15 reps each set.

Four sets each direction of cable wrist curls for forearms, 15 to 20 reps each set.

That was it on Tuesday and today I can train again and will do chest, shoulders and triceps.  My bodyweight has gone down about 40 pounds now and I will continue to drop down as required by my doctors.  Fun times, indeed.

I thought hard about writing this up here as the sets and weights are humiliating (not that I was ever super strong, mind you) but realized that my acceptance of being mortal again is perhaps an important component of my well being.  I am now 57 and still plan on being fit for as long as I live.  I look to one of my childhood heroes for inspiration, Dave Draper.  Still fit in his 70s.  If he can do it, so can we all.

Thanks gentlemen!

Thanks!  I've been training consistently for nearly forty years with layoffs for illness/injury only.  I've met Dave and he is indeed, a great guy. His wife I have only spoken with, but she is a sweetheart of a woman and they compliment on another well.

Right now I will train all body parts once a week.  As for stories, I have a few.  I somewhat resemble Draper and we met at a contest he was judging at the high school I attended back in the mid 70s.  He was of course, much bigger than I especially so his bone structure with wrists that are quite large.  When we ran into one another it was almost like a mirror albeit a fun-house version if you will.  I looked at him in amazement and he looked right back at me in terror.

I said, "You look like me!"  His reply was, "I'm older.  You look like me."  My mom used to tell  me we were related when I was around 10 or so, but later told me it was just to give me something to aspire to.  It worked.  I was in Tijuana in the late 70s and got swamped by a crowd of itty bitty Mexicans chanting "Dafe!  Dafe!  Dafe Drapers!"  It wasn't that I didn't have the heart to tell them they were wrong, I don't speak Spanish.

Those guys loved Dave and who can blame them, he really is a fine gentleman.

When I was working I had a brand new company car every three years.  I didn't need a car for myself except to buy a six pack or go to the park for a run. I drove a 17 year old Toyota Tercel. Every time I turned the key it turned on. No repairs outside of brakes maintenance during that time.

It was a wicked down pour years back in Toms River, New Jersey. I came around a curve and the water was deep down this street. There were cars stuck every where. A jacked up pick up truck went through it and the two guys in it yelled at the top of the lungs when they made it. Believe it or not I was pissed at the thought of going out of my way for a detour and I started driving. The car was smoking stream and making a dying sound. I told myself how foolish I was. The motor kept chugging but dying. All of a sudden the water was getting lower and the engine started to come back to life. The guys in the pick up truck just looked like they saw a Kangaroo bouncing a basketball as I made it through. I sold that car to a college kid buying a new car and it's still running perfect. It's about 21 years old now.

Sweet!  Great little cars, those Toyotas.  My sister still has her '74 Corolla.

Four sets of 15 reps on vertical machine bench press.

Four sets of 15 reps on pec dec.

Four sets of 15 reps DB laterals.

It hurt too much to even try and do shoulder presses with 12 lb. DBs.  Damnit!

Four sets of tricep pushdowns, 15 reps per set.

I wanted to do more and to be even more honest I really miss my H.I.T. training but I cannot risk either right now.

It was rainy day yesterday for the 4th. They are having the fireworks at the shore here today. We know a great spot where the fire works seem to explode right over head.

Changing things up as I do almost weekly. Trained chest and bicep today. Very disgusted that I can't do any pressing with any serious weight due to my bad shoulder. I just do what I can do but it's almost embarrassing using light weights for pressing. I feel I'm seriously down in the muscle department but I look fit.  Sad

After I lifted I  went for 3.1 mile run.  Saw a slightly chubby girl running toward me in a sheer sports bra top.  Wink Made me run with a smile for awhile. Nice boobs has that effect on me.
