Looking strong as always. Saw you tried OHP with bands. I tried those and thought I was going to kill myself. I think I have that 1-800-Budweiser number as well.


You seem to be getting stronger, not older.
Wish it would work for me. (2 months to 70 here)


Steve-OHP with band is different! I like it but, I have had that feeling of impending disaster!

Biker- you Sir are well respected here. Guys like you and Harry continue to pound weights and do things that most cannot ( I cannot do handstand pushups)…and I’m only 5 months away from 58 so a tip of the cap to you


I think 58 is still relatively young.

Only thing holding you back from handstand pushups is fear of failure.
You’re doing good OHPs so you’re strong enough.


Tru Dat ! or at least the fear of face planting


Does this mean you’re can CGBP more than your regular bench? Very good benching and CGBP.


Harry, yes… Over the past two years I focused on CGBP while my shoulder was problematic . I just recently started regular BP…so I have some catch up to do.

OG, just read on internet that leg work, just about any kind, improves brain function in mice.


Is that legit? If so it’s pretty interesting.


It was on a medical website that popped up on MSNBC a few hours ago. Makes sense.


I would assume it has something to do with pushing blood to the brain.


Makes sense. The article also said the mice, whose back legs were immobilized for the test, had some sort of nodules on spinal cords.


well it must not be working for me !!! Hey , you guys have a great Memorial day weekend…remember the fallen, thank the living !
