flex you should go for it if its something you want to do, never know how many chances you will get.
 booty I hope you get to feeling better soon.

 Donny, I have found one of the things that help me the most with my mind is walking. Its a form of meditation for me, a nice long quiet walk helps me clear my mind and sharpen my focus.

In my opening post I indicated I was a little over 20:

Upon which you asked for my age, completely unawares. At that point I thought it'd be funny to immediately contradict myself and say I was 62. And it was funny (to me, my sole audience for my attempts at humor).

Goodbye, old persons.

In this post, you seem a little bitter. Sorry if any of us old persons offended you, but you did seem to come on a bit strong, in my opinion. Anyway, maturity is not so much about age as it is about attitude. I've know old persons who were not particularly mature and I know young people who are surprisingly mature acting.

Thank you, I am feeling better today actually...less swelling and the ear ache has gone as well as the terrible pressure I had on the bridge of my nose.

Okay so my plan is to do some form of exercise every single day, whether it is cardio or weights.  I won't exert myself to the point where I swell up and then end up taking 2-3 days off completely.  That just defeats the purpose.  I want to make progress everyday.  I will have to train abs on separate days rather than at the end of other bodyparts, since it appears to be a real issue in off setting terrible swelling and mucus buildup.

I tried the do something everyday routine, my body gets irritable with me eventually and stuff starts to go bad. I thought if I just used sheer will power I could overcome, that approach worked for me when I was in my twenties.
 I`m doing 2 days on, one day off, 2 days on 2 days off. Off days are restricted to walking, stretching, bicycle etc. My body needs that time to recover.  Maybe if I had access to some type of PED things would be different.
 Diet is even more important now than it ever used to be.

Seeing the photos of your forearms has raised my curiosity as to your statute and here is why, my forearms are skinny. They measure something like 12".  I have done every imaginable forearm exercise with not much success. The same is true for my calves, which top out at about 16". My arms are unusually long. I have a 36" sleeve length. Considering that I am 5'11" on tiptoes, this means I am built a little like an ape. Furthermore, my inseam is much shorter at 31", so I am really ape like. Do you have shorter limbs? I have noticed that guys who have a stockier build from a bone structure standpoint often have more developed calves and forearms.

Genetically speaking, I have an ectomorphic body. My parents were both tall and very skinny. Truth be told, this is what got me started bodybuilding. I didn't like being a string bean. The good news is that as a senior citizen, things have balanced out. Between all the years of lifting weights and, yes, using ABS at times I filled out some. However, I still tend to revert to the slim guy I started out being....well maybe not quite as slim as I once was. Hint, I no longer fit into 29" Levi 501's. LOL!

85 mins brisk walk outdoors.  I find I can always walk for longer outdoors than on a treadmill at the gym, which is probably the same for most people.

Treadmills are a bore, especially the one at home. At least at the gym you can look around the room and there are other folks walking or running along side you for inspiration. At home the only advantage is that I can run naked on the treadmill if I want....don't think that would go over too well at the gym though.  Grin

You have the advantage of good weather where you are. I would have to bundle up in so many clothes right now to go for a long walk, it wouldn't be that much fun. It is really hard to want to go for a walk when it is pouring rain out. Even the dogs don't seem that interested. When the weather is better, I take the dogs down by the river. The paths at the park to the river are mostly paved. Coming back up the path to the main part of the park really gets my breathing going and heart rate up, since it is a long uphill walk. On the other hand, walking around the neighborhood gives me the choice of going uphill at the beginning of the walk or at the end since I live at the 500 foot elevation marker. The top of the hill is 800 ft. and the bottom is probably around 200 ft. above sea level. So either way there is a good opportunity for a good workout walk.

yes i agree with the posts here about walking. you can when out walking really have time out to clear your head. Walking really works the glutes very well too. Depends on my motivation and if i have slept well i will break it up too like a sort of interval training..run/walk. I go through periods where i just run but when i do building new muscle is hard. I find walking better if you goal is to build some size. I do also like my rope jumping in between to elevate my heart rate. I always jump rope to warm up when weight training and even between sets! I see njflex you do Dumbbell stiff deads too, i like them more than a bar and leg curls. I normally do my leg curls first then stiff deads..mainly superset.

I would love a treadmill at home.  I would just watch tv or listen to music.  And before anybody tells me I would never use it, I would.  I stayed with a friend in melbourne years ago and she had a treadmill.  I would get up every morning and walk on it for an hour..I never missed a day and I stayed with her for a month.  So I know I would definitley get good use out of one.  I just get bored walking on a treadmill at the gym.

I can't walk here at night as too dangerous and then there's the heat factor.  If I want to walk in the mornings then it has to be 5am, as by 6.30am the sun is too hot.  Then at night it's around 5.30pm until 7pm, when the sun goes down.  If I had a treadmill I could do it anytime...it would so awesome.  Oh I forgot to mention the rains.  In summer we can get up to 3 months of heavy tropical rains and storms so again you can't walk outside.
