Starting new thread.
I’ll get onboard. Looking for any ideas to even slow down the wasting.
Sarcopenia became significantly obvious when I turned 60. The decline has been fairly linear. I am currently 73.
Bam! I’m in again.
It was a joke topic title, really.
The only things I know of that work are exogenous hormones and weight training. I’m about 13 years behind you and not experiencing sarcopenia as a natty…yet.
“Working out regularly is the absolute key to preventing (and healing) sarcopenia.” So your doing preventive medicine.
From my experience this is a joke! At least a false hope.
Found that quote on several pages about the subject. Not suffering from it I have no idea. Oh well, that was my rare shot at advice.
Upper Day - Volume
Strict Viking Press
1-Arm DB Press
Wide Grip Lat Pulldown
Seated DB Cleans
Forgot to do these
Trying to kick the weight up too fast again. I will hold here next volume session and improve technique.
Dig the thread title. Nice squats in your thread.
Thanks man. Yeah squats are going really well and I’m pretty pleased, though not satisfied.
Lower Body Day (Volume)
275+small Bands X4 (pins at holes 8 and 12)
Took the box 1" lower. Made a big difference. Hard getting out of the bottom, suddenly.
I’ll do this straight weight only next time and try to make them snappy.
Lever Squat Machine
Seated Leg Extension + Seated Leg Curl
(130 x9 + 195x9) x 3 sets
Kept good control on these
Seated Incline DB Curl
Pinwheel DB Curls
Bonked after the Lever squat, but I kept going. Gonna need a bunch of food now.
Hey mate, what would be your go to for post workout food wise?
I find fatty hamburgers or super-mayonnaised tuna on heavily buttered toast coupled with a giant glass of milk particularly satisfying.
That sounds the ticket, hungry now though…again lol.
No wonder the box squats were tough. I bumped the weight 20lbs instead of a more reasonable 10 in addition to reducing the box height. Guess I did all right then.
Upper Body (Intensity)
Axle Continental Clean and Press
Feels weird in the shoulders. No 205 today.
Multigrip Bar OHP
150 3x5 (PR wt@5)
Mag Grip Close Grip Pulldown
Close Grip BP
1-Arm Strict Cable Row
70 3x10 (rt)
Cable Triceps Pushdowns
Standing Calves (pause top and bottom)
Lower Body (Intensity)
Paused SSB Squat(2 count)
325x2 (no belt wt PR)
365x1 (paused wt PR)
330x3 (paused wt@3 PR)
Slow Negative Deficit SLDL(5 count down, Weight lifting shoes, only 35’s on a power bar)
275 3x5 (straps)
Multigrip Bar Reverse Curls
Leg Press Calf Press(pause for 2, top and bottom)
Leg Press Tibialis Lift
DB Side Laterals + Rear Laterals

Top squat was solid. The slow-negative SLDLs are giving my low back more stamina and stiffness and making my hamstrings stronger, if not bigger.
Solid PRs! Nice!
