I maxed out my machine in January but looks like I am maxed out as well. I haven’t made any more progress after 10+ rotations. I’m trying some new stuff like back-off sets and have seen a 1-2 rep increase here and there but it still takes me 3-5 sets to get 30 reps out. Chipping away at it anyways.

Holy shit!

So that’s what you look like. Looking pretty good, dude.

I hope Jan gets a look at this. I’d like to hear what she’s got to say.

Thanks, man! Not to shabby for 54, at least I think.

Just don’t send a photo of your junk.  If I could get rid of about 15 lbs I might look OK, for 66.  But it’s hanging on.

Well I hope I get to share my junk with someone again someday, but no worries about sharing it with anyone here.

Thinking of quitting my day job and becoming an underwear model.

Now you are bragging.  But with good cause.

I did chest and legs today.  On the leverage bench press I can do 5 plates on each side (450 lbs. total). I know it’s cheating a bit, but Archimedes would be proud of me.

Hey now, underwear model is a lifelong dream of mine.

That is a good press! I am not sure what I do on a regular bench but I do 216# on my machine.

The leveraged bench press operates independently for each arm and has a bit of a fulcrum action going on.  I couldn’t do that much on free weights, but I can do more than any other 66 year-old in the gym, and most of the younger ones.

Nice! I hope when I’m 66 I can still be doing this.

Well, this thread made the LJ Ridicule thread, so I guess that means what it means.  GAD, I think you were the main target - I leave no evidence behind when I clench.

I saw. Stereotypical rationalization of people who do nothing and sacrifice nothing to stay fit and healthy but want to be seen as great and wonderful because they believe they are a “good” person.

How come when I posted a wood-chopping picture years ago you said it looked like too much work?  Anyway, what brand coffee are you drinking?  Talk to Java Planet before you sign anything with Manscaped Boxers.

This is what I thought you looked like.  https://www.google.com/search?q=photos+of+anthony+hopkins&rlz=1C1CHBF_enUS693US693&oq=photos+of+anthony&aqs=chrome.3.69i57j0l5.9679j0j7&sourceid=chrome&ie=UTF-8

Wood chopping and snow shoveling are to much work!
