After many years of lurking, wayward drive-by comments, and multiple injuries it's time to leave the kids table for the big table with the big boys and girls.
I'm 48 and have managed to beat my body up pretty well through the years. I've played football and rugby, wrestled and been of of Uncle Sam's finest. I have old hips and beat up shoulders. Anymore, I'm an old guy with good hands.
I lifted/trained religiously until one day I found out that beer tasted better than gatorade.
That lasted through 1/17/89, some 10 years. Been a friend of Bill's since then. I went through a minor bout of depression when my basement gym was lost in a catastrophic flood. My income has been cut in half through the last 3 years. Well, enough sniveling. I'm still on the right side of the grass.
I've trained with and bastardized many programs through the years. I now train at a gym that allows chalk, has round plates, squat rack, power rack, deadlift platform and has some strong people. I've done Wendler's 5/3/1 and Starr's 5x5. My current workout is a push/pull/legs that's geared toward strength. I'm coming off a deload week and figured this is a good place to start. I may have OCD, ADD and/or ADHD.
I'm coming off 6 months of front squatting and am getting back to back squatting. I estimated squat numbers. My front squat numbers were higher but I want to ease back into it.
These felt light and easy.
