    Never too old to exercise, but you may be too old to exercise carelessly. Injuries take longer to recover from as you age, so avoiding them altogether becomes much more important.

    Just make sure that your additional exercises aren't changing your psychology during the big lifts. If you squat first up and you know you have 2 hours of training yet to come that day, then you may...

    There are about 20 weeks left in 2014. If you pick a weekly progression strength training program, think of how much stronger you can get by the end of the year. Even if you aim for just 2 extra...

    Go as low as you can without rounding your lower back. Keep working on flexibility. You will quickly be able to do a fuller range of motion if you are diligent with your flexibility training.

    If you want bigger arms then you really should do direct arm work and eat sufficient food/protein to grow.

    Work hard and enjoy. Lifelong pursuit of fitness is admirable, and just stepping into the gym garners respect from nearly everyone else in there.

    As Farley said, there are many programs that use 5x5 set/rep structures. The details (exercise selection, weight selection, rest times, etc.) matter. For example, 5x5 ramping sets is going to work...

    You have done really well so far. You should be more optimistic about what you can do in the future! You can and will lose the fat if you apply yourself to a sensible plan and work with dedication...

    Try doing more than 10 reps with the lighter weight before aiming for 10 reps with the heavier weight. Either that or do what you are suggesting and build back up to 10 reps.

    For your strength goal, do the 5x5 routine. The higher rep sets inherent to All Pros shift the focus more towards bodybuilding than strength training. But life is long enough for you to try both...

    The goal of the program is to increase your strength on the basic/important lifts. When you add in all of those other exercises, you distort the focus and sabotage your work towards the strength goal.

    Judging by your deadlift, I think you could drop 70 pounds from your squat and squat lower.

    As for your questions, the answers depend on what you want to get out of your training. The routine you...

    One of the main problems with this type of arrangement is that you end up training six consecutive days. It may be best to insert rest days as needed and avoid sticking strictly to thinking about...

    Dumbbells are great until you try deadlifting and squatting with them. Hopefully you can find a gym with barbells. If not, then it may make sense to find a different routine that uses the same...

    Steady progress on a program featuring bench press, bentover row, chinups, overhead press, curls, and dips (or any triceps-centric exercise) will train your arms. Then it's up to your diet to ensure...

    I have tried many, but I only like two brands of compression shorts:
    1. Nike Pro - The waistband eventually goes, but it takes years for that to happen. Excellent overall comfort/performance.

    I would sell the 50 pound PowerBlocks and buy a new PowerBlock U125 (or U90 if 90 pounds is enough for your needs) set. The only thing that bothers me about that set is that the 100-125 increments...

    I own that same BodySoid bench. It is certainly sturdy (at least at my moderate weights) and is a comfortable 18.5 inches from the ground. It folds up, but it may not go quite as flat as you require....
