Howdy
I am now over 50 and have been Body building since I was somewhere around 16 .
Now I work my ass off and do not seem to be getting anywhere with it and it is very discouraging.
Does anyone out there have any ideas about what I can do to get a little result?
I do a full body routing 3 times a week, which includes the standard exercises.
Furthermore, the day after I exercise I seem to have no energy.
Is there anyone else out there which is over 50 and still making decent gains?
If so what is your routine

Thanks

you might want to take a look at HST? have you tried that program yet? there are quite a number of older lifters there that have made good gains. just a thought.

That�s what I've been doing for over a year and am now out searching for something just for older guys.
I done a year of HST cycles and it works to a point
I've read everything thing Brian has written.

Thanks

Here is the question I posted on that thread .............
I posted it here as well because I�m not sure how long it will take jb to reply

I'm 52 and could you tell me your actual routine over a weeks period .
I need to get a better grip on what you are trying to get across to me.
Let me see if I�m right
Three exercise per body part once a week.

Day 1
Legs
1)Leg extensions
2)Leg Curls
3) I can�t at the moment think of another leg exercise. I�m not going to do squats because of a lower back injury

Day 2
Lats
1) Low pulley rows
2) Lat pull downs
3) What do you suggest for the 3rd ?

Day 3
Chest
1) Bench press
2) Flies
3) (Two months ago I had shoulder surgery where they shaved off some of the clavicle, removed a spur and did something to the bursa. I was doing DB flies with 75 lb�s each when one got away from me and hyperextend my right shoulder )
4) Standing cable crossovers

Day 4
Biceps
1) Concentrations curl
2) Bar bell curls
3)Hammer curls
( that doesn�t seem right doing three bicep exercise ,but I�m most likely wrong)

Day 5
Shoulders
1) Military press
2) Lateral raises
3) Shrugs

(I can�t seem to get it all within 5 days)

Day 6
Triceps
1) Rope push downs
2) Kick backs
3) Lying triceps extensions

Tell me where I�m going wrong.
I have nearly every thing I need here in my home gym
Power rack with high and low pulleys , 6 position bench, cable crossover and 10000 +- lb�s of steel .And a large assortment of bars and dumbbells .

Thanks

Sonny, I was doing what you did and getting no where. I wasn't regressing, just holding still. After I did that thread with Jboldman I went back to splitting body parts over workout so that I was not repeating during the course of the week and noticed a increase of strenght and I was better rested.

And we'll collect the moments one by one. I guess that's how the future's done. Feist, "Mushaboom", 2005
