found my wrist limits last week, so now I am buying wrist wrap supports. Turned my left wrist purple yellow wnd black, but it only swelled a tiny bit and didn't really hurt. Did my right wrist to a much lessor degree, only black a little. Did it all on dumbells, 90's. On legs, creeping to the 405 squat, at 385 now, it is large fun. Anyhow, with wrist supports, along with my right elbow support when going heavy and my knee wraps for squats I will be almost full bionic support except for left elbow. I look like a walking wreck working out, thank God I don't wear all that cr@p at the same time.

Glad you didn't have to lay out any birdman. My ankle is almost 100% now, and I'm getting back to where I was as far as running goes before I hurt it (still don't know what I did!). I've changed my workout to lighter weights and doing 3 sets of 15 reps, really focusing on form, and am increasing my cardio work. It's a nice change of pace, and i don't get as sore. Think I'll stay with this a while.

Thanks for posting Wharfy. I cut back the running and swam three days this week. The legs needed the rest. Next week, it's running in The Islands! I'm going to run around Diamond Head. It's about 7 miles round trip from our hotel. Lots of time in the water too. Of course, many refreshing Mai Tais to work the curls! Aloha!

I did one of my off the wall weight workouts Wednesday..... did an hour and a half triceps workout, it was crazy. Doing something like that once every month or two really shocks the body, pick one body part and hammer the bejezus out of it. I know I did good because today, two days later, my forearms are in knots and half numb.

I'm liking the fewer sets-lighter weights-more reps-more cardio thing right now. I think I'm actually going to try some dieting along with this routine for the summer. My weight is 222 right now, I want to be down to 210 in 8 weeks. Wish me luck! Keep on rocking everybody (you too ratboy).

Doug I think the weight thing is something that starts equalizing itself to a point when doing a work out based lifestyle week in week out. The funny thing with me, and this was unexpected...... I am a natural 190'er without working out. I bulked to 205 like 2 months ago at a peak weight. Since thenI have done pretty serious workouts 4X a week, all 2 to 2.5 hour. So I am now stronger on everything than 2 months ago, I believe added muscle mass, and now I weigh 192, and look bigger, but my pants and belt is loose so that was all unexpected. I do want to get back to 200 again and am eating more. Some year I plan on working abs..... I hate them and have never done them. I have a one pack.

I agree with your observations bird. I know that I eat too much, and too much of the wrong things. I know it's hard on my body. I really want to increase my intake of fruits and veggies, cut down and carbs and meat, and eat more reasonable portions. Trouble is, I love to eat, especially beef, and I'm hungirer when I'm working out. And, I can maintain a weight of around 220 and feel okay, clothes fit well, etc. Except I know 210 is a much better weight for me, and 205 would be even better! I'm starting tomorrow.

Go for it Dug
That was the hardest thing for me.
Like you said, its all about smarter choices. Not skipping any meals is key also.

Here is a little something I found recently..

Keep on kicking @ss everyone!

I was doing great until I downed a large pepperoni and sausage by myself last night! Off to the track this morning.

Since my wrists healed fine (weren't really hurt, just colorful), I thought I'd try to disjoint my right elbow this week. I was doing T Bar (plates on one end of barbell, other end in wall corner ideally. Pull up to chest in row move. Did 5 plates for 3 reps and on the last rep I felt my forearm slide out of the elbow joint a little, like an extension and felt the tendons stretch. It felt funny that night and fine the next day. Lesson: Involve both arms equally, I was strong arming with the right I believe.... it being the primary side hand I wrist wrap to bar. I can't believe it all went back into place

The continuing how far can an old guy go before breaking experiment is on track.....

LOL X2 ! Yep. I'm 53 going on 22 and I have to contantly remind myself not to do something stupid like forget my actual age and tragically overextend myself.

An injury at my age would take far longer longer to heal than back in my crazy youth...
That said, I am still managing 2-3 weight training sessions a week, being conservative about adding new weights, and 2-3 16 mile bike rides or brisk 2 mile walks a week , depending on what I have time for that day. The bike rides usually have to wait until the weekend due to time constraints.

I am making progress and at 5' 10'' am managing to stay around 170 which is at the high end of a healthy weight according to the websites I've been to, but still in the healthy range so I'm happy so far...

I am still having a bit of trouble with my right knee but my doctor says I should be OK as long as I ice it before and after workouts . He did a full check and said that there is minor inflammation that may go away on it's own eventually or it may be an indication of pre-arthritis (damn)

To hell with it . If that is what it is then the only thing to do is fight it ...

Keep at it fellow fitness fanatics ...

Glad to see this thread back! I had to lay out a week, just when I was getting back after my ankle. I pulled a muscle in my right forearm somehow and it hurt with every lift I did. Tried to ignore it for about a wee, but it just kept getting worse. Feels pretty good today, so I'm going to try and start back with a light workout and see how it goes. My knees bothered me a lot when I first started running agina, but the pain eventually went away and they never bother me now. Hope everyone is staying after it.

Ran my 21st Peachtree Road Race 10K on the 4th, with 59,999 of my closest friends. Got my Peachtree PR. My 11-year old son did his second Peachtree.

Did 31 miles of running over the previous 7 days including the Peacthree and last night's 6.8. I'm debating about running my first marathon on Dec 10 - Huntsville Rocket City Marathon. I'm doing a Ragnar Relay in September in San Fran with 11 other people (186 miles total; everyone runs 3 legs) so that will throw a slight wrench in the training program.

Still hitting the gym for weights about 3 times per week including yesterday.

Do any of you have any tips for getting motivated and exercising after a day at work? I only worked a half-day today and still didn't have the energy to exercise this afternoon. Just a half-day! That's pathetic.

I'm really good about exercising on non-work days, but I have to make it part of the rest of my life, too.

Thanks for any ideas. It's so great to read about many of the success stories you folks are posting.

Michael - A couple of thoughts (some contradict, find what works for you):

1 - Don't let yourself get home. Put a gym bag with shorts, T, shoes in the car. Find a park or gym to hit on the way home.
2 - Don't think you have to have 60-90 minutes or it's not worth it. 20 minutes is worth it.
3 - Buy a pullup bar for your house. Buy some perfect pushups. You can get some cool stuff done in 20 minutes using those if you decide to exercise around the house.
4 - Keep a written calendar of your workouts. Nothing like seeing it on paper.
5 - Log your miles and make "friends" at Daily Mile website. Posting your workouts and seeing other people's routines and feedback is motivating for me.
6 - Read about exercise.
7 - Take walks after work or after dinner. A brisk walk is much better after a meal for you than turning on the tube or the internet!

Just some thoughts. Good question.

Find some one to be accountable to. A workout partner, spouse, kid, trainer, anyone who works out when you do. The more you exercise, the more energy you will have, and the more you will want to do it. Your brain rewards you for it.

Props to getting this thread going again. As they say, out of sight is out of mind!

Been taking it easy on the runs due to some sore legs and worn out shoes. Finally picked up a new pair yesterday. I've been getting in the pool at least 2 times a week since the middle of June. I sure like it. The plan is for the rest of the summer to swim three days a week and run twice.

Keep up the good work everyone!
