    Thanks. I remember you saying you didn't train them anymore, I was just curious if you had tried any really heavy ones recently, following all of your other gains.

    It's not the recommended method for the minimum. No reason you can't do more than the minimum, although the minimum works pretty well all by itself.

    I live in North Allegheny and have printed t shirts for the water polo team, pretty funny. Look me up in you come up - but look up Brett first.

    My worst injury to date - still persistent, 6+ months and counting - would be a good cautionary tale for the over 40 crowd. We got a big shipment in at work, and I jumped into the back of the truck...

    Nice job.

    I don't know if you've ever thought about it, but I'd be interested in hearing your thoughts on how GS training has affected other activities/strengths versus HS training. I know GS...

    What if it simply means they found a more effective drug or cocktail?

    In my limited experience, it certainly can. Nothing can replace the wisdom gained through aging and experiencing - not just experiencing, but aging AND experiencing.

    Thanks for posting the link, Steve, it's been too long since I've read Max's blog.

    In many ways, my 45 years has been the exact opposite of Max's. His way is better.

    Pavel's Hit The Deck program would seem to be in order. He also describes another program in Beyond Bodybuilding that would likely work wonders.

    This reminds me of a chapter in Dan John's book Never Let Go, it was called something like "The Warmup Is The Workout". I've never really understood it, no matter how many times I've read it.
