"Doing more exercise with less intensity,"
Arthur Jones believes, "has all but
destroyed the actual great value
of weight training. Something
must be done . . . and quickly."
The New Bodybuilding for
Old-School Results supplies
MUCH of that "something."

6 mile run in the evening after spending all day getting up leaves. Getting up leaves sucks lol.

Tomorrow I?m running a Christmas themed 5 miler with my wife. She has expressed an interest in running again after a long layoff. She was more of a sprinter back in the day. I don?t like running two days in a row, but I?ve been coaching and encouraging her, so I?ll take one for the team. She?s a natural athlete, but just has to find her groove. Eons ago when we were dating she was blazingly fast in a 400 meter run (I couldn?t come close), and could do 52 men?s pushups and 10 pull-ups which is phenomenal for a woman who had no interest in weight training; just calisthenics. Age, high stress job, lack of exercise and eating on the go caught up to her and I am working with
her. She is not into weight trying so I am trying to devise a bodyweight program to help her out. She is a quick responder and hard worker.

All the best with the Missus.
Id love to get my wife to train a little.
She's 62 but looks 45 {facially, plus good hair and skin} Bloody strong too, but carrying a little extra, although eats very well for the most part and fasts 16+ hours a day.

It?s hard training a loved one. My wife gets irritated with me lol. I sometimes think she would do better with a stranger. She did great on the 5 miler and got jazzed up with the size of the crowd. I think it sparked her competitive streak a little. She wanted to know how she did in the women?s age group. I?ll have to curb her enthusiasm a little as she is from the school of more is better. I don?t want her to get injured.

Back Raises: BWx3x20

Tomorrow's will be:

Floor Press: 100kgx5x5

Took a huge metabolic hit from today's workout and was gasping for air and needed some garage floor time afterward. I pushed or pulled until I had nothing to give. Had everything pre-staged, so it was literally seconds between exercises. 4/4 or 4/2/4 40-80 seconds TUL.

- Non-lockout dumbbell bench press
- One arm dumbbell rows
- Non-lockout hip belt squat
- Weighted dips (continued doing negative only after positive failure)
- Weighted 45 degree hyperextensions
- Gripper

Today

TBDL - 1 x 5r @ 70 & 80%
1 x 4r @ 90%

Leg curls - 2 x 20r

Body weight Squats - 1 x 20r - easy but had to stop, as both knees unhappy.

KNEES - have noticed a mild discomfort in both knees for around 3 weeks.
think its from leg extensions, even though i go light, rhythmic and no lock out.
Also i perceive a weakness in my abductors and glutes, or i should say a lack of engagement.
Last i fucking hate TBDL's as a leg exercise, but as a home gym lifter have few options.
I feel dead lifts generally, all varieties that is are by definition as a full body lift, not that great a leg developer especially on this lanky 56 year old.
Back in my late 40's i had a similar issue.
I maintained lower body strength and conditioning by performing rack pulls and heavy farmers walks.
Added stretching and later manipulation of my knee caps to correct patella tracking {well that's what it said on you tube - lol}
After a few months i added leg curls then static leg extensions.
I may do something similar Jan 2020, plus glute bridging and isometric abductor work.

Hello Chris, I use patella straps. They fit just below the kneecaps. First I squat all the way down to pop the knees. If they're stubborn I kneel on the floor to pop them. Then I put the straps on. I use them for weight training and hill walking/running to keep the patella tendon tracking correctly. The ones I have are Nike. I don't know what other brands are out there.

My still-reduced lung capacity is causing poundages and reps to suffer. Hustling up the 1000-ft hill on non-weights days has been easier than 20-rep deadlifts, even with modest weights as today.
