    Advice for Seniors


    Friday, August 24, 2012

    Body Weight: 158.8 Pounds

    Advice for us older athletes: I began having sinus problems several weeks ago. I decided to self-medicate with cough drops, honey, Vicks and an over-the-counter sinus medication. Yesterday, after suffering and showing no improvement for a month, and missing a day's work, I finally went to the doctor. After an examination and blood draw to see what's going on, I do have a sinus infection that has dug in. The doc gave me a steroid shot (ha, me on steroids), prescription cough medicine and an antibiotic. I'm already feeling better and am on the road to recovery. Lesson learned is, especially if you are older, if you are ailing, don't wait to seek treatment and don't try to self-medicate.

    Bummer


    Friday, September 14, 2012

    Body Weight: 156.0 Pounds

    Bummer.

    I have a touch of bronchitis and the antibiotics the doctor has me on will not let me weight train until I complete the ten days of doses. The doctor said this particular antibiotic could cause tendon damage if I do any weight training. It's a good thing I'm leaving for England for 10 days next week. I do not plan on visiting any gyms while I am in England.

    I had a great time acting as Master of Ceremonies for the 2012 NGA Georgia Natural Bodybuilding, Figure and Bikini Championships in Newnan, Georgia on Saturday. It was a fun show, the first annual NGA Georgia contest where everyone had a good time.

    I'm continuing laying off of weight training as I recover from a case of bronchitis. Doctor's orders. My personal training clients are picking their own weights from the racks as I watch and coach their lifts. That's a change...

    Getting ready to leave for England on Thursday for a 10-day vacation. Looking forward to a great trip.

    I'm Back!


    Tuesday, October 2, 2012

    Body Weight: 156.6 Pounds

    We arrived in Birmingham, Alabama from London, England late Sunday night. My wife and I enjoyed ten eventful days in the south of England and in London. I spent Monday at work catching up with business and preparing the end-of-the-month payroll for my personal trainers at the Y. I have fully recovered by my bronchitis and resumed my weight training with a good chest and triceps workout. I'm back on track and ready to start a vigorous weight-training regimen that will take me to the end of the year and give me a great start for 2013.

    Widow-Maker Power Workout


    Saturday, October 6, 2012

    Body Weight: 156.0 Pounds

    I dusted off and resurrected an old plan that I have worked from time-to-time called The Widow Maker. My PT clients and I will follow this plan for the next four-six weeks. We did the Back and Biceps workout (Day 3) on Wednesday and Legs and Calves (Day 2) on Friday. We will do Chest, Shoulders and Triceps (Day 1) on Monday. We are all sore from the first two workouts.

    Widow-Maker Power Workout – A Strength Gaining Plan

    The purpose of this plan, devised by Coach Sean “Sully” Sullivan of Cape Cod, Massachusetts, is to grow lean, hard muscle mass by lifting heavy for several sets with little rest in between, using the same weight load and then doing a Widow-Maker set of many reps for the same exercise. Here is the Plan:

    Keep the same weight for all 6 sets, but you may lose a rep or two at the end. For example set 1 - 4 you get the 6 reps, set 5, 5 reps and the last set 4. Pick a good weight and don't lower it even if it means 2-3 reps total on the last set.

    On the high rep sets don't just do them light and go through the motions, go heavy and hard. For example on the 50 reps of squats pick a weight you can only get 20-30 reps with and then just take 2-3 deep breaths and bang out 4-6 more reps, breath and do more until you get the reps in. This is the Widow Maker set!

    The rest between sets is 60-seconds and do a few warm-up sets before you begin the exercise

    Stretch the working muscle between sets for 20-30 seconds.


    Day 1:

    Incline Bench Dumbbell Press – 6 x 6, 1 X 20

    Flat Bench Dumbbell Press – 6 x 6, 1 X 20

    High Pulls (wide grip upright row, but you pull to the forehead) – 4 x 4

    Heavy Laterals – 3 x 8

    Press Down – 4 x 10

    Decline Dumbbell Extensions - 4 X 8


    Day 2:

    Leg Press – 6 x 6, 1 X 40

    Squats – 6 x 6, 1 X 30

    Hack Squat – 6 x 6, 1 X 20

    Leg Curls– 5 x 8

    Leg Extensions – 4 x 10


    Day 3:

    Reverse Grip Barbell Row – 6 x 6, 1 X 20

    Medium Grip Pull Down – 6 x 6, 1 X 20

    Dead Lifts – 6 x 6, 1 X 30

    Barbell Curls – 4 x 6

    Preacher Curls – 4 x 10


    Day 4:

    Lunges - 6 X 6, 1 X 20

    Seated Leg Curls - 6 x 6

    Wide stance Squats (feet out wide, toes pointed out) - 6 X 6, 1 X 50

    Dumbbell Stiff Leg Dead Lifts - 6 X 6

    Step Ups (Step up, one leg at a time, on a high bench or aerobic step) 6 X 6


    Calves and Abs work is done twice a week. Pick one exercise and do 5-6 sets of as many reps as you can do for each.

    Do Cardio on off days from weights, 20 minutes of HITT or intervals.
    Do 5 min warm-up and 5 minute cool down so total time is 30 min with 20 being interval or HITT.

    Old Navy,

    You've been on this program for quite a while. Are you planning on an overall evaluation anytime soon?

    I just started a new workout program this week. If you are asking about my supplements, I continue to use the AAEFX stack with great success. I am strong, I have high energy and good recovery. I especially like the NF-PRO 100% Pro Grade Protein, the Chocolate. Remember, I am 69 years-old. I'm not going to grow a lot of new muscle. My goal is to keep what I have and continue to be healthy and strong.

    Widow-Maker Power Workout


    Wednesday, October 10, 2012

    Body Weight: 156.0 Pounds

    I dusted off and resurrected an old plan that I have worked from time-to-time called The Widow Maker. My PT clients and I will follow this plan for the next four-six weeks.

    Widow-Maker Power Workout – A Strength Gaining Plan

    The purpose of this plan, devised by Coach Sean “Sully” Sullivan of Cape Cod, Massachusetts, is to grow lean, hard muscle mass by lifting heavy for several sets with little rest in between, using the same weight load and then doing a Widow-Maker set of many reps for the same exercise. Here is the Plan:

    Keep the same weight for all 6 sets, but you may lose a rep or two at the end. For example set 1 - 4 you get the 6 reps, set 5, 5 reps and the last set 4. Pick a good weight and don't lower it even if it means 2-3 reps total on the last set.

    On the high rep sets don't just do them light and go through the motions, go heavy and hard. For example on the 50 reps of squats pick a weight you can only get 20-30 reps with and then just take 2-3 deep breaths and bang out 4-6 more reps, breath and do more until you get the reps in. This is the Widow Maker set!

    The rest between sets is 60-seconds and do a few warm-up sets before you begin the exercise

    Stretch the working muscle between sets for 20-30 seconds.


    Day 4: Legs and Calves

    Lunges, 75 pounds, 6 X 6, 1 X 20

    Seated Leg Curls, 80 pounds, 6 x 6

    Wide stance Squats (feet out wide, toes pointed out), 100 pounds, 6 X 6, 1 X 50

    Dumbbell Stiff Leg Dead Lifts, 30 pound dumb bells, 6 X 6

    Step Ups (Step up, one leg at a time, on a high bench or aerobic step), body weight 6 X 6 each leg


    Calves:

    3 x 25 sitting and 3 x 25 standing

    Abs:

    100 hard, slow crunches



    Supplements:

    Of course you are correct. I entered my first bodybuilding competition in 2005 (NPC Northern Kentucky). I weighed around 138 and my body fat was around 8% (didn't know what I was doing yet). My 40th show last April, I was 148 and my body fat was around 5%. I was 61 the first time and 68 the last time I stepped on stage. I placed last in the Open Men's Bantam Weight Class at my first show and won the Men's Open Lightweight Class at my last show.

    My Avitar on this site is from my last show.

    You're still a kid. I workout (from time to time) with a 72 year old power house. This guy didn't start lifting until he was in his early 50's. He began at at 172 lbs and is now weighs around 205 and he's a stud man. He's an endo and a power lifter. I'm guessing his body fat at 12-13%. He can lift around 1200 lbs (total) on all three power lifts. He is on TRT however.

    You are right. I won't be 70 until next April. Your guy is a freak (meant in the best way).

    Widow-Maker Power Workout


    Saturday, October 20, 20126

    Body Weight: 154.6 Pounds

    For the past week, I have been up to my elbows working on my personal training department revenue and expense budget for 2013. I have also helped install new fitness equipment that arrived at my YMCA branch on Monday. Although I did the Widow Maker Power Workout on Wednesday and Friday, I didn't have time to post a complete log. My budget is done and the equipment is installed. I will post my usual log on Monday.
