You are trying to build a strong, muscular body, not get your body beaten like this.

These 4 lifts will do the trick: Squats, Dips, Rows, High Pulls.

If you have the energy, then do them all in 1 workout, 3-5 sets of low reps (or high reps with Squats).

Or if you are like me...

I'll admit too that I often split up the workouts by removing squats and just putting them on a 2nd day. Between low recovery ability, hitting 40, my own business and kids on top of it all - an upper...

That's a great routine. It can also be easily turned into a 3-day per week routine for us older guys who enjoy having a day of rest after the workouts.

I may give this a go for a long while. My...

Why not get more bang for your buck and make them high pulls (but only pull to your mid-stomach).

This will not only make your traps huge, but your shoulders, lats, upper back and biceps.

Anyone have "Strength, Muscle and Power" by Brooks Kubik?

If so then can you share the routine that he stated on his Dino blog where he "gained 30 lbs of muscle" in his 30's?

Thanks.

My last question was about starting weights.

I'm not coming from a lay-off or an injury, and not a newbie,
