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,

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.

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):

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! Pre Body 2.jpg Fast forward about 8 years and I was looking for something to 'do' other than lift weight...
