Re: Basic routine for the over 40's

Hi Ray,

Whoops, forgot to add I do bicep curls with bar 3 x 10. But the bent over row would be a good one to add.

And yes - that’s how I do the squats.

Re: Basic routine for the over 40's

Basic routine for the over 40's

Hello Ray, Seems a shame to see this resource underused, so I have a question if that's OK? I'm 40 years old, not in terrible shape, no injuries to nurse other than an umbilical hernia I try not to aggravate, but I would like to improve my overall strength (and just try something a bit different; I ...

Re: JP Muller My Army and Navy System

Hi,

While I search the book out, here is a link to a video of the routine; it follows the book quite closely (I prefer this to the "My System" full routine):

Re: Expanders

After training today I thought I would share my journey through expander training. Here is a picture of me at about 29 I think. What I had benefitted most from up to this point was...being young!

Re: Sticks has left us.I

When I read his last post early yesterday it seemed horribly like he had written his own obituary, so it was sad to read Peter's update. As a final post though, it sums the man up fine: the tapestry of strength and experience we've built belongs to the ages and each others souls. Those words are onl...

Re: Maxalding

Good luck with it and keep us updated. I have my own copy of the Maxalding system made for a young man in the early 1960's, and there isn't THAT much difference between the outlined exercises and the examples you will find in the library to be honest.

Re: The Best Physical Culturists of the 1930's

I can't imagine anyone topping John Grimek for the 1930's, but I'll also put forward Professor K.V. Iyer and Oscar Heidenstam. I was going to add Ronald Walker, but can't condone a nasty smoking habit ;)
