    Default Long Layoff

    Hey Guys,

    Just coming back from a 15+ year lay off and was wondering if the generally accepted methods had changed.

    I'm a 55 year-old and doing a 3 on 1 off split (chest/back, shoulders/legs, arms) and taking in 30g of protein every 3 hours throughout the day.

    I'm making great gains thanks to muscle memory but was just wondering if I'm missing something.

    Neh....your not missing anything flash, kunce now do push / pull, upper / lower bullshit full body routines but they all look like tennis players at best.
    Big kunce still do the good ol traditional split.

    Only thing I’d say is, legs and shoulders together is a taxing day, I’d move it around to do them separately, but if you’re feeling full of beans, go for your life.

    Hes not a competitive lifter mate,and in actual fact is as functional as a bag of rocks. The amusing thing is im 20 kgs lighter,absolutely blast him out of the water in squat and deadlift as well as explosive speed off the mark as well as endurance. His fav lift is bench and despite him taking a cocktail of steroids,doesnt bench that much more. In summary,he sucks,dont listen.

    Day 1: Bench
    Day 2: Curl

    im not 104,im aiming for a lighter weight class and the only way to verify your claims is for you to do a bench only comp,preferably PA. Not sure if you will get waived seeing as you have a history of steroid usage but in saying that,im quite happy to offer up a handicap of sorts as long as you go bodyweight coefficient. Easy to get to as they are based in Melbourne. Something tells me Grunta is like a cockroach that is afraid of the light. I make no secret that im not a great bencher. However i can play by rules which types like you have real difficulty in doing.
