Wow, Ricks, good numbers on the weights. That is great, considering that a lot of people your age won't even touch weights!! Heck, a lot of people my age won't touch anything but machines!!

I've been lifting on and off since I was 28.

I think for me that machines, with a couple of exceptions, just don't get it done.

I stick to the compound movements and go hard. My "deconditioning" is usually a week off.

I try to encourage anyone, regardless of age, to get into resistance training and cardio. The combination has served me well through the years.

Weight and age are both just numbers. Heavy or getting older shouldn't hold anyone back!
