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.
so correct Jay.. i like to feel light,fast,flexible and strong for my size. I am not a Marathon runner but i like endurance also in my muscle Training. I really mix it up. Full range of Motion is the best way...partials are oK at the end of a hard set..you know what i mean.

Not to be critical of young folks, but this fellow looks to be in his 20's. He better be fit at his age.  

Things I noticed when watching the video were that he pauses (rests) at the bottom of the exercise sometimes which relieves the tension and lessens the impact of the movement, IMO. He also exercises at a pretty fast pace. I prefer slower more controlled movements. When doing dumbbell side delt raises for example, if I feel like I am involving my back or jerking at all, like he appears to, I lower the resistance.

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

I am sorry to hear this Jay.  I do recall you posting about your wifes condition.  I guess I just forgot briefly, as my mind skipped ahead of all the fun stuff.  Love is about more than sex.  I am sure you can compromise in the bedroom.  Maybe she just lays back and enjoys while you do all the work?   Grin

You are a good dad. I don't know your girls, but I would bet they love you regardless of how pumped you are. Skip the dumbbells and just swim in the ocean and run on the beach. You are not going to lose any conditioning in a week anyway. A break is good. If you don't think about working out for the next week, you will blast it when you get home and go to the gym. Bodybuilding doesn't have to be an obsession.

A block from the ocean....man am I jealous. Maybe it is time for my wife and I to rent a place down in Lincoln Beach or Seaside for a week. Our kids are grown, but the dogs love the beach. So all is good. I can get the neighbor boy to water my yard. Wow! What and idea. I think we need a break from the same old routine that fills our lives most of the year. Late summer is the best time of the year here for good weather at the beach.

She's shy or even coy after all these years. Something else to love about her. Thanks for the idea about me doing all the "work?" not  that it would be. Chances are we will at least enjoy a good laugh over the idea of having sex at this point. But hey, it is all good.

I love the ocean, you always feel so healthy after a good swim.  I don't wash my hair afterwards until the next day as I find the salt really gives it alot of body.

Think of this...you doing all the work can be another workout and help keep you fit.

Yeah, I remember how my hair had momentary body after a day at the beach and swimming in the ocean. The sea water is so great for my skin. I have oily skin and it clears up all the oiliness and when I was a pimply kid my pimples too.

There's many hair products on the market with salt in it to add body.  They are selling it calling it "sea salt".  I was always told to wash my hair after a swim in the ocean but I stopped years and years ago because my hair never looked better after a swim in the ocean.  Also I love how it really washes out your nose.  It's good for clearing up a cold thats lingering around.  Yep skin looks amazing too...it has that glow to it.

Hey wait. I am in line too. I love getting a massage. Do you do deep tissue massage? I may not have as many manly muscles as Steve, but you can pretend. Don't be upset if the massage puts me to sleep, they are so relaxing.

Kidding aside, I have a great masseuse. He does deep tissue massage and since he is also a good friend of mine, he gives me a 90 minute massage for the price of a 60 minute massage. He'd probably do it for free, but I won't hear of it. I haven't been to see him since before I was diagnosed with prostate cancer. That's almost been a year and a half. Time for me to get back into the therapeutic benefits of massage. If I can get my doctor to prescribe them, my medical insurance covers most of the cost.
