Great Interview with Jay and Bryan. Soon to be 64 I am still pushing heavy weights but have some rules and routines I apply. First off I am not increasing the weight I am pushing. At this point 100-110 dumbbell presses are max for me. Some days I do 8,10 or 12 reps. I am lucky in that I did not start lifting till my late 40s.
I was listening to an interview on Tim Ferriss of former olympic gymnastics coach Christopher Sommer. One of the things that really struck me was that he said it takes 210 days to build soft tissue and that is why many people get injured.
If I tweak a muscle I am out of the gym immediately knowing that if I walk out right away I’ll be back next week. If I push it then there is 6-12 weeks recovery. I’ve done the stupid and learned from it.
I hit the 100-110 mark in 2012. I have found that even with a great trainer I get into bad form. On multiple occasions I have dropped down to the 60 (have my workout group call me a pussy) to achieve better form. When I have done that I found that I was much better before when I got back the heavy weights.
Somedays the weights feel light and others heavy. Somedays I am there mentally others not. I adjust my workout to accommodate those conditions.
4 months ago after listening to a Tim Ferriss I started doing the Wim Hof cold therapy and breathing. All I have to say is WOW. Now there were some stumbling blocks with cold that I will go into on my blog at a future date but I will tell you that both my wife and I feel better after doing the breathing exercise in the morning before we get out of bed. Many of the little muscles tweaks I had vanished within a few days after I started my cold plunges in @ 50 degree water. Yes your dick does get small but it does recover.
