My legs blow up fast. I remember just doing Reha some years ago doing high rep 45% leg press for high reps and they still grew. Its a Family Thing though as my Father was stocky with heavy thighs. You are just a Beast Stevo.. you love pain.

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.
