There's nothing to flame Jay.  But hit your wife up every week for a whole year for a 69'er.   Grin  Tell her it's to celebrate your 69th year.  I am glad to hear you are feeling well again.  Yes nothing worse than starting your birthday in not a good state..health wise.  I will get through the pms.  I loaded up massively on the B6 and I think it's starting to kick in because I don't have any tenderness in the breasts today.  Swelling is still there but at least pain is gone.  It's an excuse to eat something sweet.   Tongue  Yesterday I ate a slice of caramel slice with fresh cream.  I am meeting my best friend soon for a coffee and sweet.  

Not to be morbid, but you have no idea how funny asking my wife for a blow job would be. She is on oxygen 24/7. Granted the air hose is in her nose, but the image of her going down on me is hilarious. Unfortunately, my wife is not healthy enough for sex. We settle for cuddling and giving each other back and foot rubs. Not very sexy, I know, but whatever works and since we are still together after all these years, it would seem we have figured out what works for us. Unlike some people on Getbig, my wife enjoys my daily exhibitionistic tooth brushing and beard trimming in my bright colored underwear. She thinks they are hot....especially the orange pair. Guess I am just a piece of meat to her.... Grin

Standing is best how do you prefer?

Not speaking for Chaos, but I prefer seated presses. Besides a number of machines at the gym which emulate front and rear presses, there is always Smith presses, either front or back. There is also a Smith like machine where the bar raises in an arch. This machine is great for standing barbell overhead presses. When you press up the bar moves to the front away from you. This movement would be impossible using free weights, I suspect.

Not in my lifetime. I don't believe in divorce, plus I love my wife. On the other hand, she may want to divorce me sometimes because I can be a bear to live with. Anyway she thinks I look hot in orange underwear so she's a keeper!  Grin

Do make too much out my training. I am a lifetime narcissist. Looking the best I can is very important to me. It is not like I train for anyone else. If there is a benefit beyond looking fairly decent in my bathroom mirror, it is that I am healthier than most dudes my age (bronchitis notwithstanding).  Grin

Just keep training, Ed Corney didnt start until 33 and won many titles. All of us Bodybuilders are Narcissist. I train a few people one is older like 62 has a knee issue, believe it or not call me crazy but slow squats under control is the best exercise you can do, fuck extensions they just irritate the knee joint. The dude called me back next after the slow squats said the knee felt much better.

I will keep the slow squats in mind. So far what I am doing is working. At this moment I have ZERO knee pain. When I worked legs on Tuesday, none of the movements bothered my knee at all, including some fairly heavy leg presses. I've heard people say the extensions irritate the knee before. Maybe it is how they do them. They don't bother my knee at all regardless of whether I do them one legged or both legs. I have not done them on any other equipment except the Nautilus leg extension which for me minimizes any jerkiness in the movement. Also, I am not using a lot of weight @ max 60 lbs. per leg. I keep the reps pretty high, shooting for the burn in my quads.

What normally has bothered my knee since it started acting up was mowing the lawn....not kidding here. Our front lawn is on a hill and I think there is something about the unevenness that troubles the knee. I did mow the grass yesterday though, with no problems at all.

I am doing machine hack squats, both front facing for quads and reverse for my hams. I am pretty careful on the front facing hacks. Talk about slow squats....I am doing these super slow and with not a ton of resistance either.

Where am I? Do you mean since yesterday when I last posted on the Mature thread? Are you having a mature (senior) moment, Donny?

I've been back at the gym for over a week. My workouts are going well. I am pretty much over the bronchitis and aside from a little bit of an upset stomach, which I assume is from the antibiotic, I feel good. My legs are sore from Tuesday's workout which makes me happy because they don't always get sore, so I never know if I am doing enough to get them to grow....like Steve's.  Grin
yes i know mate but i have to come into the mature thread Via my Profile and click onto my mails because a fool has blocked me from seeing the Training section on the main menu. i asked Ronald if i am banned and he said no because only he can do this. so conehead can delete,edit but not much more and on other threads and sections here not all mods react like conehead.

I cant do any kind of leg extensions, I messed my knees up playing basketball could jump really high dunk under the goal at 6'2". Slow Back squats and Front squats all I do no knee pain what does that say? It says they are natural movements.

There's a blue line that says getbig bodybuilding boards, on the left of that line is a +/- box, chances are, during one of your tear filled meltdowns to "smash" me, you hit that box. That minimizes the boards in that zone....where the training board is.

You are absolutely right that squats are a very natural movement or position. There was a time when humans didn't have chairs to sit in. It was common then to squat around the fire. Many cultures today still squat down as a way of relaxing rather then standing around. My father-in-law would be in a squat position in front of his aquarium for hours on end. Of course when one adds additional resistance, it does change the dynamic some. And as we all know, good form is of the essence.

My knee pain is caused by a miniscule tear. I have no idea when the tear happened. It could have been decades ago. They don't always cause problems. Mine did only recently. The pain can come and go according to the doctor. Aside from some movement that could further tear it, probably not from lifting at the gym since I am very careful with all lifts to use good form, there is not much that will change it. It will not repair itself. If it becomes problematical, I will discuss orthoscopic surgery with my doctor. As it stands now, with no pain, I am not inclined to worry about it.

I sometimes do warm up sets just to get the feel of the movement before hitting it. It may be a waste of time and a little energy as you suggest, but I enjoy doing them anyway.

Yesterday when I worked my back, I went really light on the resistance, concentrating instead on movement and speed. I am feeling the effects of that back workout today. So even though I did not really tax my strength, I accomplished something beneficial in my opinion. I also got through the routine in less then 45 minutes which is the ideal time for me to workout and not lose energy. I left the gym feeling like I could do a little more, which is sometimes a very positive feeling.

Have you ever considered that if you increased the resistance by only 5 lbs. a month, you'd add 60 lbs. to you lift in a year? I currently top out on seated one armed curls @ 45 lbs. for 8 reps. I doubt I would be able to do this with 105 lbs. in a year, but it is interesting to think about it that way.

Anyway, it is summer, I am in a mood to slim down a little. My stomach is looking flatter and my body appears a little more defined then it did in May. Even with the unforeseen time off lately, I feel like I am making improvements. I may not be on the competition stage with Cswol in a year, but hey, it's all good!  Grin

I understand as being older more warmup is required. Which back exercises did you do? Yea if you think about it adding 5lbs a month in 24 months you would doing 165 impossible although we always strive to do more.

I was talking to a young fellow at the gym yesterday about his conditioning. A year or so ago, he was about 216 and now he is 196 lbs. I guessed that he had lost about 20 lbs. and I was right on. He is probably about my height give or take an inch. He looks great and he says he feels great. He said he really enjoys the difference in how he feels when he runs now.

I've noticed that when he is working delts, he really keeps the resistance light. If his boulder shoulders are a result of this, he is doing something very right because the light weights seem to be working.

In contrast there are two fellows who train together who are really huge. One is big and also fat the other is just swole. Without a doubt these fellows are strong. One of them was working his back on the equipment I normally use yesterday. This is probably why I noticed how he preforms the exercises. On each machine he loads 4 or 5 plates on each side and then does a rapid succession of really limited movement exercises. For example, on the Hammer low back row, he move the weight about 6" if that. On some equipment, he needs help getting the weights into position and then again he barely moves them. This is not a one day or one time thing, he an his training partner workout in this manner all the time. I guess it makes one big, but the lack of range of motion cannot be a good thing in the long run.

I am going to stick to full range movements and lighter weights. At my age, I cannot afford to do exercises that are likely to make me less flexible than I already am.
