My girlfriend and I started a week trial at Golds in town. I wasn't in the squat rack but 2 minutes and a guy comes in and hops in the one next to me. No big deal. 1 plate, almost decent squat. 2 plates, eh it could be worse. Surely he's going to stop there and work on form. Nope. The third goes on and he adds another 6 half squat reps to his day. Shortly thereafter he adds a fourth plate and adds another 6 quarter reps to his day. I was thinking that must be it for the ice cream cone shaped man who had a high affinity for his calves. I was wrong. He throws on 25s and proceeds to lower the weight 2-4 inches for 6 reps. All the whole counting his reps out loud while getting pumped as each "rep" is completed.

Then he goes and does the same thing on leg press.



There is also this 50 year old dude with a ton of body hair who wears a muscle shirt. One of those tiny ones. That's a strange sight.

I get tickled when they hop on a cross trainer next to my girlfriend, who is 61 years old, with the body of a 25 yr old....seriously. She's hauling azz on the cross trainer ( eliptical) and she'll do it, non-stop for 40 mins easily. These young guys hop on one next to her and they last 10-15 min at most and they are on level one or two, when she's on level 19. No one in the gym can keep up with her.( she's been doing it for 14 years now) It's hilarious to watch. I'm usually nearby and she winks at me, knowing what I'm thinking. BTW, she's 5-2, 115 lbs.

We are all about reps, not weight. Bulking up isnt our thing. Did that years ago. Staying strong and healthy is. If you dont do your cardio, you are pizzing in the wind. Want to see how weak you are really are? Get on that eliptical at level 19 for 40 min., then hop on the treadmill at a 7% incline at 6 MPH for another 30. Then go lift. If we old farts can do it, so can you, eventually.
