    I'm 54 and was one of those guys that Pavel described in PTTP as not making any progress since the Eisenhower administration. Over the last three years, every single routine or program that Pavel...

    Big thumbs up to your post. I'm 54 and have been deadlifting consistently for about a year. I figure when I feel I can't DL anymore, I'll switch to Pavel's S&S and or DJ kettle programs.

    If I remember correctly, the Bear is done 3 times a week.

    I confess, I've never been a big fan of the Jefferson lift. With the slight twisitng of the spine and then compression of the lift, it just always seemed a little too risky for me personally.

    I think all those fitness standards that get thrown about are ridiculous. The only fitness standards a person has to have are the ones required by their chosen recreation activities, career, or life...

    If you add 5lbs for that M&W workout, don't be afraid to backoff 5 or even 10lbs for F & S. Cycling the weights is very important.

    I'll give my 2 cents. Practice does not make perfect. Perfect practice does.

    Rather than adding more sets and reps, I would add another day or 2 of training. Pavel makes good arguments for 1-2...

    looks like a recipe for disaster. Lots of volume and cumulative fatigue. Like Chris said, Pavel recommended no more than 2 exercises and they have to be opposing muscle groups.

    You need to consult a doctor who specializes in rehabbing injuries like your wife has. Only a doctor can know the extent of an injury. Hips are vastly different than knees.

    You can G-T-G with 2 exercises, provided they target unrelated muscle groups. HSPU / Pistols and Body Rows / Push-ups could make good pairings. HSPU and Pull-ups are push/pull but...
