Hi Slingshot,
> Good to see the progressive development in your muscle tones.
> Hope you are paying equal attention to your thigh & calf muscles too...
> Recommend...
1. Full squats
2. Half squats
3. Reverse leg curls (lie flat face down & bring your lower legs towards your butt - if someone can hold your ankles to offer resistance - even better)
4. Lateral & forward leg raises (these strengthen your lower abdominal obliques)
5. Toe raises for calves
> Great going buddy....

That must be some springer, Slingshot.It is turning you into a Sly Stallone. ROTFL

Seriously, very well done. Few things come close to being in good shape at any age. :cheers:

Looking good slingshot :)

My current workout regimen is calisthenics 2-3x a week....pullups, decline pushups, pushups, overhead presses, hammer curls, then abs. I also train in silat and FMA a few hours a week, and once or twice a week, I climb 6km to the top of a mountain as fast as possible. I can do it in 35 mins now, but I'm trying to get my time down! :) I've lost a good deal of bodyfat and gained muscle in its place. I'm 1.83 m, 95 kg.

Going to start lifting weights again next week...legs/pull/push split.

Hello,
Friends. I am a fitness freak. I am 52 and work in an office for up to 9 hours a day. So fitness training is very very important for me. I train 7 days a week. My workouts will range from half an our to the full session of 6 hours on Sundays and holidays. 6 hours not at full intensity but low, medium, and high intensity training with enough breaks. Something from the following:

Rope skipping
Stretching and joint mobility
Weight training now a days more with Kettlebells
Body weight calisthenics

And my training in the traditional martial art of Kerala - Kalarippayattu

I train in the morning at my home. Keep a few weights in my office. If I have to sit late then I do some "quick work" around 5.30- 6.00 in the evening.

All exercises aimed at improving my joint mobility and functional strength.

Diet is vegetarian. Lot of Milk and Ghee - a result of my younger day training with a traditional wrestler.

I am very fortunate that very few injuries in the last four decades.

Hope to continue this as long as possible.

Thank you

Venki

Nice to see such a thread coming up.

Did state boxing for 3 years, and now I'm with a fitness firm. Any help to fellow brethren will be happily provided for.
