    Thanks. Five years ago, I would never have thought this possible. As Alwyn said last night, I am not getting older. I seem to be getting younger.

    Here's a clip of Milko performing them. Trust me. Mine are not as pretty.

    Congratulations on you excellent results! And the most impressive thing to me is that you have done this without injury. Speaks of how very smart you train!

    I wanna be like you when I grow up too!

    You certainly don\'t have the numbers more typical of someone in their late fifties!

    Well done!

    This old guy is out lifting many of us younger guys!!

    Yes, the work is hard, but I think you hit the nail on the head with "consistency." That, I believe, is my real strength.

    I try, at all times, to listen to what my body is telling me. I have had the occasional sprain or strain, but try to keep my head in the right frame of mind without making excuses for being an older lifter.

    By the way, you can't be like me when you grow up, because I haven't grown up yet, myself.

    You make a good point about the numbers. I contend that these should be numbers typical of someone in their fifties. If guys my age would get off the couch, they would be surprised how much they can accomplish in the gym.

    As for outlifting the younger guys? We have some heavy hitters on this forum and I am glad to, at least, be in the same league with some of them.

    Mahler's Sixth Sense - I See Deadlifts

    NEW RULES OF LIFTING: STRENGTH III (Round 2)
    Book by Lou Schuler and Alwyn Cosgrove
    (My second time doing this program.)

    Day 1 - Wednesday, November 14, 2007 (Week 1)
    [color=red]Time]
    Weight: 178.8 (no change)
    Length (Including Warmup): 65 min.

    Notes:
    This is the second time I am doing this program. The first time was from 07-10-06 through 08-11-06.

    Workout A(1):

    General Warm-Up
    1/4 mile jog on the treadmill
    Calisthenics

    Straight Sets:
    Rest: 240
    Tempo: 2 0 1

    Squat (wave loaded)
    Warm-Up:
    1 x 3 x 135
    1 x 3 x 185

    Work:
    1 x 3 x 255
    1 x 2 x 275
    1 x 1 x 295
    1 x 3 x 265
    1 x 2 x 285
    1 x 1 x 305

    Quarter Squat (take 2 second pause on pins per A.C.)
    Rest: 180
    Tempo: 201

    1 x 2 x 375
    1 x 2 x 385
    1 x 2 x 395

    Squat
    Rest: 90
    Tempo: 201

    1 x 6 x 225
    1 x 12 x 185

    Straight Sets:
    Rest: 90 sec.
    Tempo: 2 1 1

    Seated Good Morning
    1 x 8 x 135
    1 x 8 x 140

    Rest: 90
    Tempo: 1 0 X

    Swiss Ball Crunch with Medicine Ball Throw
    (These were done without releasing the ball)

    4 x 4 x 10

    Comments: Well, here we go again. This program will take me up to the holidays and is one of my favorites, because of the low rep, wave loading. Even thought the reps are low for the most part, the volume is considerable. Not counting the Quarter Squats, the total squat volume for this workout is 7,810 lbs. which is 96% of my ending volume when I did it the first time through. So I am expecting some real improvement on this one.

    Music for the Holidays:
    Since this program will lead up to the holidays and since I am an avid fan of classical music, I am going to do a "Music for the Holidays" recommendation for each workout I post. There will be no particular order of importance and it's just for fun.

    Thanks. Even after a 4 day break, it's good to hit the weights again.

    You might be interested then in one of the few Thanksgiving-related CDs I was able to find. Harvest Home by the Dale Warland Singers.

    Hi Mahler,

    Nice workouts and nice music too!

    Those strength workouts look pretty daunting. Good job.

    Impressively strong workouts as always, John.

    I like the music idea! I'll be looking forward to reading those. I'm sure you'll come up with some really interesting selections.

    That has some good old standards on there. I just might order that.

    These low rep workouts are my favorite. As for the music, I get tired of some of the standard fare around the holidays, so I thought a little WWMLT was in order (What Would Mahler Listen To )

    Yeah, low reps sound more inviting to me because you are lifting more weight (I assume) than you would lift say, doing 15 reps? I am eager to start working more on hypertrophy and strength. Fat loss goes on forever it seems!

    Anyway, I enjoy reading your log.

    Bill,
    We must have posted at the same time and I missed your comment.
    Alwyn has suggested using the deadlift improvement protocol to increase my squat after the holidays, but I plan to hit them hard before Christmas as well.

    The music idea just popped into my head as I finished posting the first workout. I am sure there will be some old favorites, but I have a few unusual things that I pull out at Christmas time. I think you will like them.

    Thanks, Deb.
    The only real drawback to heavy, low rep sets is the long rest periods.

    Have you heard Fabio Biondi and Europa Galante play this? If not, let me know if you'd be interested in hearing it.

    Have not hear it. Yes, very much interested in hearing it. Thanks.

    I usually start a new program a little more conservatively (don't tell the CE forum), but since I only took a 4 day break from SII, I decided to use weights that were near where I finished that program.
