I only joined this forum about a month ago. I haven't been doing a lot of posting because I have been trying to follow through with some of the previous suggestions that other posters have given along with watching a couple of videos.
Just a refresher. I'm 65 years old and was ready for worm food about a year and a half ago. When I beat the grave I was left with no muscle tone to speak of and a lot of sagging skin. I worked on getting the muscle tone back by just getting out into the yard and working on the house and property. I also went back to a lot of Kenpo stretching excercses and Katas.
Bottom line is since I started taking some of ya'll's advice, the saggy skin is all gone and I have more energy than ever before. I measure my muscle progress on the off workout days in order to not get a "pumped up" reading. My bicep/tricep measurement went from 14" to 16 1/2. My waist was 38 and is now 35. My chest was and still is 48 but I'm not worried about fitting myself up with a training bra anytime in the future any longer.
Anyone who believes a guy can't build muscle mass when you get old is definitly wrong. I feel as good as when I was Army Airborne 40+ years ago, and the way things are going, I might look better pretty soon too. Uh, my wife is definitely impressed also.
Anyway, thanks guys for your input, it's been the start of a new life for me.
