Dings, Dents and Work Arounds

I hit this 302 pound push press 20 years ago. At age, 60, with plenty of dings and dents, I can't lift what I once lifted - but I'm still training, still having fun, and still WAY STRONGER than most men my age. That's the magic of progressive strength training.

Hail to the Dinosaurs!

After 60 years on the face of the
planet, and 51 years in the Iron
Mines, I have a fair amount of
dings and dents.

Everyone my age does.

It's part of getting older.

No big deal.

The important thing is to keep on

To do that, you need to work

The other mags don't talk about this
very much (or at all). It's not "cool"
to admit that you can't do certain
exercises - or that you do kettlebell
squats now instead of the heavy
back squats you used to do.

But the other magazines push the
Fantasy World.

Muscle Beach, where it never rains,
never snows, and every day is sunnier
and more beautiful than the day before.

But you and I live in the real world -
the world where it snows, rains, sleets,
