    When I'm in a gym, the equipment I need may not be available. So I might not go in order. Doesn't seem to matter, except doing the heavier lifts first.

    Arnold would cycle through this. He didn't work out this way year round. He'd go from working a muscle 2 time a week to 3 times.

    He would jump from a

    Might be better if you cut back on that program, so you are only doing the 5 main lifts at 5 X 5 and the pull ups. We all are faced with strengths and weaknesses. It's always the weakness that send...

    Doesn't really square with either a strength or hypertrophy program. Could be organized into a decent hypertrophic program if you focused on the muscle being worked, and hitting the big muscle groups...

    Unless your testicles have been blown off with a grenade and you can't get an erection, you are not old. Might be out of shape, but within 60 days, you should be able to have your testosterone levels...

    Squat, bench press, bent over row is a standard full body workout. That's a good start for 3 day per week. Not sure if you can handle progressing. Not the way I'd go. Think you will develop injuries...

    It's part of life. Recovery can take a lot longer as you age. It's helps to do the healthy stuff-- eat the protein, get plenty of sleep, stay away from the booze. I personally do better if I work out...

    In the past I worked out in a gym where taking viagra was a common practice. If you want to do it, and you don't have side effects, I think it would be alright. Could give you a pump.

    I'd first have a blood panel done, see if you have any endocrine issues. Plenty of people 60+ around my area that are still ripping it. Find the right program for you, and do it consistently.

    Doesn't sound as if you should lift anything without consulting a doctor.

    Find a program you like and stick with it. Consistency is the key. 8 sets? Not for me. I'll do a total of 15-20 sets per workout. I'm a natty who tries to hit the big lifts 2-3 times per week. You...

    Unless you have some debilitating injure and you'd be going against medical advice, I don't see why you can't lift. Ease into it.

    It's now a common problem--lazy people. Makes it hard for a commercial gym to attract customers when there is constant **** to deal with. Big problem when you don't know if the person is finished.

    I prefer PPL programs. But I find it's the big lifts that will do the most for me. The squat, deadlifts, and the bench are still going to be the kings. I'd make those the focus. The alternative lifts...

    I either stand against a wall and press my shoulders into a wall, or I use one of those double handled cable rowing machines and press my shoulder into a bench.

    In a true strength program, you probably only need about 6 lifts. The advantages of variation would be the pros of decreasing repetitive motions, which may help prevent injuries. Once you start...
