    Starting a new thread, posts will mostly be my random musings about my training, nutrition, motorcycles, etc...
    I've been a member I think since 2012, so most will remember my background... I haven't been very active of late, but I do still read and follow some threads still!

    Here's a little vid I did last year, hope you like it...



    Since 2010 I've trained Physique, Track & Field (Master's 100M Sprints), Krav Maga and back to Physique.
    I'd really love to try the Classic Physique Division this year (NPC Midwest), so... there's the goal...

    Stuff:
    I'll be 57 in Nov, 5'8" and 185
    Current split is a 5 day and I throw in a 6th day extra credit Leg session on Sat usually (trying to bring up my legs).

    Off to do Legs after work... more to come

    After already hitting Chest/Back/Legs this week I normally take Thursday off to recover... But...

    Here's my shoulder workout for today:
    Machine Shoulder Press
    Seated Ahren's Press
    Incline Bench Front Raise
    Seated DB Lateral Raises
    Cable Rope Upright Row
    Standing Cable Rear Delt Fly

    3x10 sets plus 3x10 sets RTR
    TUT style... 1 concentric, 3 eccentric

    I like this, I've responded well with it and have used TUT quite a bit after my elbow dislocation and my ever decreasing shoulder ROM...

    Fasted sugars this am: 111
    Slightly higher post, it happens occasionally... I don't dwell on it, just an adjustment in the following meals/snacks...

    Awesome work man!

    If you don't mind me asking, how long have you been training Krav Maga?

    I did roughly 6mo... Then had to leave the school, it was pricey... I had lost my job due to downsizing so I was scrimping along...

    I'll go back when I'm able, I loved it...

    It's been a crazy week+, my MIL passed, I've got a new grandson (that makes 7 now), my 36 wedding anniversary...
    Whew...

    Workouts have been sporadic, nutritions' been ok, time to get back after it!

    And bonus, here's a pic of my wheels, they're strong and fast, but lack size...
