Wait. What do you do?

I'm always working on my neck muscles to keep my posture erect. When I see older people one of the many things I see that have collapsed and weakened is their neck muscles and with that their posture. It's all connected with the spine alignment, of course.

I take ankle weights and balance them on my head while doing ballet plies. I do look stupid.

Ran 5 miles last night. Feel pretty good today.

Hit the weights during lunch and I just might try to run again tonight.

A modified version of something like this. This is great too, and I do use the resistance band as well, but what I was taking about is using a pallet strap instead of a resistance band. I can keep it stationary to do isometrics as I adjust the length little by little to work through a complete range of motion, or loop it over something and tie it to something heavy to create kind of a pulley system that allows for more effective angles than the typical neck harness.

Blush been hitting it hard, problem is my left wrist injury prevents me from doing curls, and my right shoulder rotator cuff is being a pain in the ass, get a good workout in....take 3 days off until I can move my right arm again above my waist, rinse and repeat, but I am trying to change a few exercises, and put on another quality 10 pounds on this year now that my knee is rehabilitated .....damn...I sound like I am 90 years old Weeping Thanks though the encouragement means everything Thumbsup

Damn, you too? I have had consistent forearm wrist issues when I did curls, I eventually gave up on them and just rely on chin-ups for the biceps.

Overhead presses have been another issue, I've impinged my shoulder twice so I reduced weight, increased reps and just do 1 set now.

Sucks, my goal isn't really to pack on muscle, I fear that bulking/cutting cycles might wreak havoc with cholesterol/heart at my age. But I'm not on any medications at my age, so I'm feeling pretty good.

Yeah the wrist thing is annoying, I googled it and apparently it is well known weight lifter issue from supinated curls in a locked position, like from straight bar or EZ-bar curls. meh.

I have dropped the weight and leaned towards high intensity, and volumization on presses as well. I use the hammer press machine now, the one you put the plates on each side, sit down and press up typically I superset that with bench dumbbell presses

Seated presses, reps x weight, then then go do a set of dumbbell presses for chest, rinse and repeat...

35reps x 135lbs
30 x 155
25 x 185
20 x 205
14 x 225
10 x 275

think I may need to swap back to ....seated dumbbell presses instead with a much lighter weight for a bit Weeping
