    Nice going CG.

    When I get better I'm going to look into Power. It's sure done well by you.

    Many thanks to you kree-kree, Nowhereman, k3vb0, George, Seltzer, Croz, leftyx, LoneStarChick, Rise, beginner84, NCNBilly & DeafNgari. I appreciate the support.

    The new Fall release I'm learning is really challenging. A great workout! I'm glad I didn't have to turn in my teaching tape on this release. I'm going to have to be careful to not over-train. Still struggling a little about working in my regular weight lifting sessions. I'll probably cut back on legs since they get worked so much in this class.

    This arrangement will probably not result in me adding more muscle or bulk but it will certainly keep me in shape.:bb:

    Hey, tomorrow starts the first week-end of Fall. Everyone have a great week-end.:nod:

    That's her nephew, if I remember right. It definitely is a foreshadowing of the future though, he's gonna be a lifter!

    That's true. I sure wish I had started sooner. After you turn 50 is a bit too long to finally get in shape. :lol:

    Well sure most of us wish we could have done it sooner, but hey, starting at 50 is better than starting 20 years later or not starting at all. :). I wish I had started sooner too (say, 18-20) but we're here now and we're doing what we can and we're doing it right, so hey. :nod:

    The cool thing is that it doesn't take long to get in good physical shape and it doesn't take much upkeep once you get to where you want to be. The sad thing is though most people go their entire lives without doing it. I often wonder what the typical lifespan and health outlook/progression of someone who works out and eats right on a regular basis is versus someone who lives like the stereotypical person does nowadays. One thing that keeps me doing what I'm doing is thinking of the big picture in the future when I'm old.

    heh i recently had my 50 yr old uncle tell me he couldnt ever deadlift the same weight was me since he is just to old
    to start, keep in mind my uncle does like 200 pushups each day and occassionally trains in the gym
    like twice a week and generally is in good shape - however, i had to think of you mike and what you did,
    ofcoz he could dl even more than me, its just that he doesnt want and doesnt need to,
    dude god a h u g e chest :O

    You're may be right about the burned out part and definitely right about the skinny fat part.
