You know you're getting old when...



  • you come home from the gym and you put on more ice packs than when you used to play rugby!!

    One on the shoulder after each chest or shoulder workout, and one for the midriff operation site. don't know if that one does anything, but it might!!

    old old old!



  • You still having rotator cuff issues Bart?



  • yeah, only way to get it sorted is to stip using it, and tons pf physio. That is not an option, so manage it with ice after each shoulder or chest workout, and 2 and three days between those body parts, it just simmers under being a pain without stopping me from training altogether. Aim for getting it right post Nationals in October. Maybe hit the rower and lay of the weights for a month and get right! or at least, lay off the exercises that hurt...!



  • Bart - Pilates

    oh and you know yr old when you start yr day with 3 types of blood pressure medication and end it with cholesterol....



  • dm - my friend had high BP, he is set to compete at Waikato in 2 weeks time as a novice bodybuilder. Has lost 20 kilos since he watched wifey and me at Nationals last year and was told by his Doc that he would be on drugs for the rest of his life for the BP. He said bugger off, and is now tickety boo, and about to become a poser!!

    excellent news

    I'm still pounding the stairs. Now the Summer is here I sometimes have some luck and time it so I can take up a bunch of water containers up the hill-people drop them off at the base, then people gradually take them up to ensure everyone has water/green tea. Last Thursday dusk I did 7 trips up 350+ steps) carrying 2 10L containers (1 in each hand), in 35 degree weather. Interesting and fun.
