60 yo. Training for strength and health and personnel enjoyment. 531 style training (351) on the weeks. Train every other day. Squat,BP, DL, Press. Simple accessory and supplemental lifts.
Healthy except for a little bit of right knee issues. 6’, 235 right now.
Train at home, really enjoy my basement gym. Training since 1974, free weights, universal gym, nautilus equipment etc… Now back to the basics. Barbells, DBs and some simple machines. Lifting makes me feel good, try not to go past what I can recover from. No new injuries is important.

Nice!

The O 35 is where the cool kids hang out!
I’m sure Chris can move your other log here.


#8

Thank you.
Hanging with the cool kids would be fun for a change


#9

What do you use for zercher? Bars in the elbows or do you have a harness?

Welcome btw :smile:


#10

2 inch thick barbell. Elbows, no harness. The thick bar makes it way less painful.


#11

I’ve always done it like that but as I get older, my elbows hate it and I’m considering a harness.


#12

The harness looks pretty good, if it fits right and doesn’t slide around.
I’ve been lucky with my elbows so far.


#13

Welcome. You’ve posted some good lifting.

Nothing too taxing. Recovery is king. Sold a cambered bench bar. Barely used it over the last 5 years. Seemed like a good idea at the time. It was ok for rows.


#15

I am glad you started a log but a little confused as to why you start a new thread every time you log a workout.


#16

I think , I need a tutorial on logging.

No prob. I threw all the threads together here, so they should be a bit more organized.

Like Lil Chik’n said, just click reply either in one of your posts here or at the very bottom of the page. That’ll bring up the text box to post in this thread.


Like that one or…

That one.
