    i'm a lil different on that aspect. #s for me are very personal, as i am not a PLer or crazy strong dude..i don't lift for raw strength gains, rather functional strength and appearance.
    i have trained with guys in the past who squat 700lbs..bench 550..DL 650 etc.
    i am not there, and have absolutely no desire to be there.
    and, i rather measure strength by continuous strength (longevity & duration with even strength), rather than 1RM and fading out..
    for the record - i squat/bench/DL in the mid-3s for reps.


  2. I definitley agree, especially now that I am older and won't see my heavy lifts come back to where they were due to various injuries. I use progresion and strict form with shorter rest periods. Works just as well as heavy load, I make sure I work hard though.

Even worse in shorter shirts with a roll hanging out the bottom. Honey that shirt was not meant for you. As Joan Rivers said "Just because you can get it on does not mean it fits." I don't have anything against larger or heavy women. I know some that are just downright sexy. However they dress to compliment themselves not accentuate the flaws. Respect yourself, love yourself and dress yourself appropriately. You can be sexy without wearing shrink wrap for clothing. Okay sorry end of rant.

    ^^^ Snags, we are completely on the same page here, what I lift and what I can lift are two different things, I'm always going for lighter weight/higher reps for richer, cleaner, more dense and striated muscle, that which cannot be achieved with the power-lifting style of lifting. Not to mention the less chance of injury and strain on the joints, ligaments and tendons, allowing for more longevity, etc.

    * Just an open FYI for others, I'm not against lifting heavy or power-lifting, just is not my thing nor does it yield the results I'm looking for, this is all my opinion and personal preference... different strokes for different folks!

  6. The thrill of lifting something that can hurt you has been gone for some time with me. I miss it but now I just lift for aesthetics.

  9. I can't fight the urge and not lift heavy things right now. I just can't but I am trying to be smart about it. Not going to kill myself or I hope not. I am smart enough in my training to back off quickly when things are not going as they should.

    Yah with age your learn now stupid it really is to go for big lifts, unless of course your a power lifter otherwise is usually a dumb idea. Therre are times when a heavy set of 5 reps will make it's way in no problem there as long as you have been progresive and didn't overtax your joints..

    You learn how to get the most bang for your buck by doing the least for the most benefit and still maxing out effort to get optimal results. You get better and better at that. The injuries you get from going to heavy are trying to tell you to get your head out of your azz ...

    Oh and I don't ever want to get old either ... so I won't

    Be progressive but only take what is given and you will get better results over the long haul.

  16. ^^ exactly.
    see, one of the trade-offs is wisdom.

    welcome.


    so today i blew up the pythons, bi/tri ss day, very basic and 12 sets total each muscle group.
    short rest periods made this a very quick workout.
    the pumps i've been getting have been incredibly solid, lasting all day.
    (i'm speaking of all-over-body muscle pumps, not lower back pumps/cramping)

  17. My age has definitely affected my capacity for enjoying things but never the enthusiasm!

    Sounds like things are getting fired up for you bubba. I'm in an off period right now and hating it.

  18. Sounds like a great workout Snags!

    Yeah the wisdom thing is very important, even with my new program I am always going to be lifting about 15% below my maximum for that rep range then just going for a few extra reps on the final work set. That makes it a lot safer than getting buck and going all out every set every time. That design is the only reason I decided to give the 5-3-1 program a shot, built in safety to keep my "Inner Meathead" in check.

  19. My Inner-Meat-Head died when I tore my chest, I guess when the surgically re-attached my chest back to my Humerus, they also surgically removed the Meat-Head, who knows! What I do know is I keep all my workouts around 45-60mins, I go as fast as I can, I get like 16 sets per body part and stay in the 15-20 rep-range and I've never looked better, never felt better and NOOOOO joint pain!
