    restarted... 3 plates first time... NOW WITH VIDEO and bonus dumbbell content..

    Posting a video on a forum, I've now crossed some threshold after 30 years of blabbering on the internet.

    original thread: https://forum.bodybuilding.com/showt...hp?t=180266843

    3 plates:


    Didn't go up as smooth as Friday, but it went. This was the second take. First one I wasn't pleased with my wife's video work. You couldn't clearly see the plates, hence the closeup and count at the end on the second take.

    (yes I know the plates are the wrong color)

    dumbbells:


    Wanted to see if I could do the 125s, the heaviest my gym has, not sure if I've tried before. Also a second take, same issue, hence the closeups again.

    He already did it once, and his wife was there. If he got pinned she could easily drop the camera and run over to give him a spot. Lots of time I will go for a heavy single with Lisa right there filming.

    Nice lifting! I like the end where you slowly count each plate so the more innumerate among us can verify that there are indeed three plates there

    That was my wife's fingers counting, kinda trolling me because I complained after the first video take that it wasn't close enough or the right angle to tell what weight the plates were or how many there were.

    Wow that's hardcore, maybe because it's a strongman gym - a red 45 is clearly going to be heavier than a blue 45

    Good clean lift. That is some post surgery recovery, your case is worth studying, you will be in the books. I am not joking.

    thanks

    To be clear, I didn't have surgery, I had a cardioversion, the shock thing to shock my heart back into rhythm after a year and a half of being in continuous atrial fibrillation. Saying I had a "heart procedure" perhaps implied something more serious.

    Thumbs up

    Very nice, Gabbar!!!
    Reps on spread.

    (And I definitely am jealous of you and -=FLEX=- for having a supportive wife/partner. My wife doesn’t like me lifting any time, and complains even more if she thinks it sounds like I might have been lifting heavy. She has never come downstairs during a workout since she might <horrors> catch a glimpse of me lifting, and would NEVER under any circumstances hold a camera to video me doing a PR attempt.)

    At age 62, I've exceeded all my prior PRs. Not “over the hill” yet. :)

    My wife is the one who insisted we take photos upon our return to the gym and send them to our son. She has lifted for the last few years. She's very supportive and thinks everyone should lift. We get advice from our son who has lots of lifting and coaching experience. My younger daughters lift regularly too.

    After my cardioversion, I asked my cardiologist about lifting weights. He said "that's fine, it's not like you're going to lifting heavy like a bodybuilder or something". I was thinking I must look dyel, but I tried to emphasize that I do hope to lift pretty heavy. I don't think he ever caught on.

    Like I said, I did take 3 months off. And started back quite easy. I wear a heartrate monitor and try to keep the peak heartrate below 120 bpm and not start a new set until it drops below 100. I violate both of those quite a bit to be honest, but that's my aim.

    After going 25 years without having a prescription or missing a day of work or seeing a doctor for sickness, I'm now on a bunch of drugs for my heart.

    Meant no disrespect Gab. Sorry if my post was interpreted that way. It was a nice lift.

    3 plates:


    Didn't go up as smooth as Friday, but it went. This was the second take. First one I wasn't pleased with my wife's video work. You couldn't clearly see the plates, hence the closeup and count at the end on the second take.

    (yes I know the plates are the wrong color)

    dumbbells:


    Wanted to see if I could do the 125s, the heaviest my gym has, not sure if I've tried before. Also a second take, same issue, hence the closeups again.

    I feel very fortunate. Lisa had never set foot in a gym in her life before we met. She's schlepped to the gym with me for years, been to all 8 of my competitions, and even competed 3 times her self.

    We have a nice home gym now; she has he own rack (insert joke here) and bar.

    I've driven her nuts over the years asking her to take progress pics, videos, etc., but she always obliges.

    Gabbar Singh was the villain the epic Bollywood film Sholay and became kinda a generic bogeyman figure. Not sure why it popped to mind when I registered.

    When I asked my wife to spot me, she made a preemptive "help you get it up" joke because she knew I would.
