    I thank you for your response, I sincerely do. I've toyed with the idea a couple times but the "more" part just doesn't seem to be an option between wife, work, family, etc. So ... I'm left trying...

    Good advice.

    Add to it; see a Doctor. Doctor might recommend physical therapist. PT will measure pain, range of motion, strength; set up therapy training and then measure progress. Depending on...

    IMO you have a great idea; If you can only do twice a week then Full Body makes a lot of sense. (That's what I do.)

    But if the killer lifts are killing you then don't do them every session. For...

    Go figure. Using the new calculator I went from chubby to chubbier! Or maybe I went from muscular to more muscular? So, perhaps, chubby BMIs (25+) should simply be viewed as a badge of honor for...

    Your frustration is palpable so I thought I'd chime in.

    Let's look at the reverse. One of my friends always had a trim athletic build. As he got older he put on weight. When most guys put on...

    I'm a drinker. Not a "drunk" but definitely a drinker. I don't know why, it's like something was "missing" and just the act of popping a beer made everything "happy".

    I started lifting about a...

    The OP may have been spam but you were not. You said a lot in a short space. Thank you for your contribution.

    I'm one of those old guys (75). Although I do recognize the value of free weights and compound lifts I feel those old guy stationary weight machines reduce the risk of injury. The years do take...

    This should, and probably will, work.

    I had "similar" however and it didn't. Saw Doctor, X-rays OK, was sent to physical therapy. Mobility came back but not the strength. MRI showed damage,...

    Awesome response Air2.

    A "standard" pour is 1.5 oz of 80 proof so two drinks / three ounces does sound reasonable.

    It's also what I "cut back" to. OP got me to thinking. "Two" wasn't really...
