Any other 50+'rs into lifting weights (i.e. bench press and other)?
I'm curious as to what weights you are lifting, and in discussing routines.
I have been into "heavy" weights - by that, I mean pushing my muscles to their absolute max, with low repetitions. I have been doing this for many years. I love the challenge and the feeling.
My max BP a few years back was 225 lbs. I have dropped off to about 185-195 max, but am working on building back up.
I have about 10-15 different "exercises" which I do, including full body dips, curls, pulls, rows, very slow crunches (including lateral abdominals), pushups, modified overhead press, etc.
I currently do no weighted squats and no deadlifts.
Anyone else, or am I the only really strange person around here.
What are you into?
