Re: Energy and Maxalding/Sandow

Hello PM and welcome to the forum. As you will have read, many of the systems at the time catered for people who considered themselves weak and feeble, but also they were fighting the prevalent attitude of the time that exercising would cause undue strain on the nervous system, athletes heart, you'd...

Re: Basic routine for the over 40's

Hi John, I've had my hernia for about 20 years now (since I was about 20). I remember pushing it in and it would stay in for a while then pop back out :D The doctor I went to see at the time said just to keep an eye on it as it was small, and it hasn't changed in all this time. I said how would I kn...

Re: Basic routine for the over 40's

Week 3 and I have to say I'm pretty happy with how it's gone. On to my second incremental weight increase and I can feel the slight increase in strength. Still managing to hit that last couple of reps struggle, so I know I'm at more or less the right weight. The only change I've made is with the upr...

Re: Basic routine for the over 40's

Hi Ray,

Re: Basic routine for the over 40's

Just to close this off (and to show Ray and David I wasn't ignoring them!), I've actually gone for the following (and am a week into it): Barbell routine (with single dumbbell for single exercise): Squat (bar on crossed arms - I find this comfortable): 3 x 10 Alternating with: Straight arm pullover ...

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):
