As some of you might know my heavy lifting days are over due to lingering injuries. I'm getting older and my priorities changed over the years. My goal is to stay healthy (lean and mean). My log will probably look boring and I don't expect you to check it out. If you do don't hesitate and tell me what you think. Cheers!

Anything that keeps you moving and healthy is great. As we age we just alter our training around our injuries and issues. Keep up the hard work MG. I will follow for sure. You can still be shredded and jacked.

Just curious how long you’ve been working out with this rep range and how it’s working out in terms of results. One injured person to another.

I feel ya with the injuries and getting older. I've dialed back the weight a lot this year and its helped tremendously. Hurt the ego but healed my body! Haha

I'm excited for you and new goals are always great motivation. Keep grinding MG, looking forward to hearing more about the changes.

I started this routine months ago (can't remember the exact date) and I'm leaner, more toned (this might have something to do with all the fasted cardio). I alternate weights and bodyweight exercises because of the injuries.

Pickle -- How old are you? Don't make the same mistakes as I do. I never listened to my body and kept working out while injured which is stupid but as you might know I'm a former anorexic and I still fight that disease. I have to work out or I think I will put on weight what I try to avoid at all costs.

Thank you for your support Rhyno. As you know I follow your log and you are doing great, you are consistent.

I'm 35 MG. This has been the first real year where i can tell I'm not recovering the same from injuries.

My sister almost lost her life to anorexia. I'm very familiar with the struggle and how it never really is something you move on from. It's amazing that you found a healthier alternative. Proud of you MG and it makes your story that much more amazing!

Do you avoid overhead presses?

I usually avoid dumbell overhead presses because I had a bad injury years ago and my left shoulder is still "weaker" than the right. As you know I work out at home and all I have is dumbells. When I was still at my old gym I was using the machine which made things a lot easier.

I usually use machines as well. I can use the straight bar, but getting dumb bells into position is harder on my shoulders than actually pressing them.

This humidity causes more aches and pains. My neck is bothering me right now.
