Re: Ric Drasin passed

Saddened to hear about this! By chance I was on You Tube the other day and it popped up in my feed! I went back and watched a video by another gentlemen who posts all kinds of vintage bodybuilding routines and such and learned that Ric had passed away. I understand it was due to kidney failure....? ...

Re: Gaining muscle in later years

I don't see any reason in biology for age to prevent muscle gain. Um, DNA and genetic research shows different. That's the point of daily training as we age. To increase testosterone by training daily, a little bit at a time, as opposed to training balls out and blasting the muscles until you can't...

Re: Gaining muscle in later years

In full agreement w/ Ray here. As we age, we shrink/atrophy, hormones decline, etc. (Normal aging process). If a newb started training at age 60 say, and upped his calories big-time, I think muscle can be built as they may not have had much before that. (Though, not a smart/healthy thing to do IMO)...

Re: Gaining muscle in later years

I've been following Dr. Jim Stoppani's routines since March of this year and can say I like them a lot. I was training on the Shortcut to Size routine, a daily, full body training routine, but have advanced to Shortcut to Size.....a six day a week routine that includes some "cardio acceleration" tec...

New Routine for November

Owning to various commitments I decided to change things up a bit to work around those commitments. I was researching routine info and re-found the Vince Gironda 8x8 routine with suggested exercises. The version I found is: chest and back on day one, Legs on day two, rest day three, shoulders and ar...

Re: If you could only do one.

Peter, I'd pick the clean & press as well. Great movement! I believe John Grimek mentioned that in one of his writings that he'd do the C&P if time was at a premium. I just today, started a new routine I'm giving a go for the next six weeks. Its a routine by Dr. Jim Stoppani's and its his philosophy...

Re: Basic routine for the over 40's

Hey Richie!

I feel ya'! I questioned at times whether it was weight training or my approach to it that led to limited gains. Its certainly an on going science for sure, and I, too, often do lots of things in my own training for varieties sake! Keep on keepin' on!

Re: 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...
