Thought I'd bump this thread. I lift weights 5 times a week, usually before my morning session in my home gym. Been doing so for about 10 months now. Used to weigh 270lbs, now down to a cool 198. Got the girls going nuts.

Anyone else lift before their morning session? I wake up at 5:30AM everyday for it. Takes some getting used to, but it is the GOAT time to work out. Test is always higher in the AM, so my workouts are beast-like.

I lift just before market close until I pick up my son from elementary, 2-3 days a week in my garage. Would like to do 4 days ,but that's harder to be consistent with.

I am up before 4 every day and so some yoga and pushups, just to get the blood flowing.
Later in the morning I do a half hour to an hour of walking. Walking is my core exercise.

I have a very good uphill walk that I do about once a week. It has one pitch of about 100 M that is about a 20% grade. I like to sprint that one. If I am feeling a lot of pep I will do a set of sprints on that section, and maybe a couple of other pitches on the route to the top of the hill. Whole walk takes about three hours, ending with a soak at hot springs.

I prefer the short sprints to jogging.

I also do sprints on the stairmaster in preparation for weight training.

I am in the gym about two or three times a week working out on machines and barbells. My number one goal at this point in the training, since I am now a senior, is to not get injured. So I am taking it slow and steady. Usually I do a set of
yoga and meditation at the gym before weightraining.

Running

"They" always said, Trading is a marathon, not a sprint.

I took this advice. Literally. Registered for my first Marathon. May 2017.

Started running last year. Basically I'm a beginner veteran (anyone over the age of 40).

I find running long distances help to improve my mental fitness. Focusing on my breathing when running, is being mindful.

I am a slow runner/jogger, so would be happy to finish my first M under 6 hours.

Sleep well, Eat Healthy, Breathe...

Bump It Again...

Just purchased a PowerTec Leverage Station (WB-LS16) for the garage -- no need for spotters when squatting, benching, pressing, etc...

Both wife and daughter (recent college graduate) are now lifting as well.....
