MY WORKOUT 2015

Over the years I've experimented with many workouts and always went back to my original plan that I used during the Golden Era. Of course, now at my age I can't lift the heavy poundages I did back them nor do I have the desire to do so. I just want to stay in good shape and work thru a ton of wrestling injuries that I have sustained.  It's not easy and takes a lot of drive at 71.

But I still split my body parts, Chest/back Mon and Thurs, Delts Arms Tues and Friday and Legs Wed and Sat.  Now sometimes I'll change it up and maybe do delts that one day and arms the next.  This just depemds on how I feel.  But basically 3 to 4 exercises per body part and maybe 8 to 12 reps per set.  You can vary the exercises from day to day but stick within that body part.

Abs occassionally 100 reps a day but abs come from diet.

Diet consists of high protein and low carbs.  Simple as that.  Eggs, Cheese, Meat, Chicken, Cottage cheese and salad.  You can have your cheat days as well.So this is how I basically do it.   Try it for yourself.
