Ok, time to start a log here as well.
To give a brief bit of background, I have trained in a gym, this time around since 2017. Mostly machines with a little free weights as well. I had a setback due to an impinged shoulder, which in spring 2019 made me take a long break and in the early autumn start over with more focus on correct form. I was using the 8-12-8 progression method and started with low weights.
When Covid-19 hit the world, I was working myself back towards reasonable weights.
Since then I have quit the gym and purchased various bits of equipment for training at home.
I have a couple of dumbbells and a body-pump bar, I only ended up getting because everything was sold out everywhere.
Unfortunately the bar is only rated for 60 kilos so that is my limit for now. But as advice seems to be, that guys my age should focus on getting stronger in the high rep range anyway, that is probably a blessing in disguise at this point.
I also use some bands for assist and finishing work.
Recently I installed a pull-up bar and my new sub-goal is to be able to actually do a few wide grip pull-ups.
I train 3 times a week, with a chest/core and a back/shoulder day and an all-round day on Sundays. (Not much leg work at the moment as I am currently battling a funky knee, are but doing some therapist advised knee strengthening exercises every day.)
My overall long-term aim is to keep healthy and not become too weak as I move towards the second half of life. And keeping it fun - this should be a hobby that makes life better, not something that takes over my life - thus the balance part of the title.
