    Actually it's a spin off from a program I recently developed I call Brink's Hybrid System which has been very popular with those who have tried it from my forums and it had very pos effects on bodycomp and strength for me also. The above is a watered down version of a much more extensive program.

    Very pretty. Don't know what the hell you will do with such a knife other than look at it, but it sure is pretty. I love good guns and knives, but for me they all have to be functional in the collection. For example, I sold that big Trident knife as it never gets used. I did order a smaller version, which I am still waiting to get.

      I am really interested in people being well and healthy for their entire lifespan.

      There is a huge mass of research being done on resistance training/weight training in older people.
      My article on sarcopenia should be if some use/interest:

        Oh, it's functional. I do not collect non-functional knives nor replica firearms. That knife is built as ruggedly and would function as reliably as any knife there is. Only difference is, it will NEVER be used. It is art in the form of a knife.

          I didn't mean functional as in it will not function as a knife, I meant functional in that you will never use it, thus it does not "function" in the collection other than to sit there and look pretty. It is art no doubt, and very pretty agreed.

          PS, you saw my CC response on the mfw-moderated idea. No one responded. I did get the info on how to go about it via Google news groups. Looks pretty simple from what I gathered.

            Additional to what i've already posted on this thread, the older I get, the more I find myself prepared to push limits and come not only clinically allow myself the worse and worse condition each time I bench it to go back for notes or this or that in other aspects of my life, but the stronger and smarter I find myself coming back and the harder I get to work for it . . or smarter as the case may be. I love the challenge of putting myself into a comeback mode.

              I'm 40 and will be competing in my first show next year, but have been in the gym most of my life. The biggest change for me is how much I need to worm up my joints. I have always liked lifting heavy, and I also boxed as an armature for 15 years. It has taken it's tole on my joints. I don't like to run outside on the pavement anymore, and it takes me 15-20 min to worm up before my training begins.

                This is a great thread. I'm 45 and decided to do my first show in 16 years, the last was the 91' Nationals. Anyway......I've been using this anology since my first injury at the age of 40 "It's like buying a new car with an extended 75,000 mi warranty......at 75001, everything takes a shit"!!

                Thats how I felt after I turned 40...torn pec (twice) knee surgery, irritated rotator cuff..etc, etc,etc. I've been training since I was 12 with no real injuries that would slow me down, but after 40.well!

                Since I started training for the show, I have found that I am coming down just as fast as I did when I competed last, I'm still strong as hell, but recovery is not what it used to be. I do however train on a 4 day on 1 day off split, but being aware of my age I do somethings different that just your regular bodybuilding protocol. I am somewhat of an expert on sport-specific functional training and I incorporate functional movements into my regular compound training.

                For example on legs, I will do squats, leg press, etc but the supplimental exercises might be a bulgarian split squat instead of an isolation exercise like extensions or I might superset regular leg curls with glute/ham raises along with reverse hypers or romainian DL. I will always include a single leg exercise in my program.

                When I do shoulders, I will always include rotator cuff work (a stabilizer) with my regular movements. I find if i keep function in all of my programs I am less likely to incur an injury...same with any bodypart, I will include a functional exercise.

                The key at our age is to keep the stabilizers strong through functional training to help prevent injurys in the future. It DOES work with bodybuilding type training.

                  I'm 51 years old and I am in the best shape of my life. I have won the two contests I entered this year, including an Open Overall, and am two weeks out form the third. I'm a married father of four, one of whom is a special needs child, I am a Guidance Counselor ,football coach, strength coach and youth camp counselor, as well. A person could not have a busier schedule...yet I still train heavy, use alot of volume and, for the most part, double split my sessions. I have been training for nearly 30 years now. The only consession I have had to make to age is that I have to eat slightly less carbs than before.
                  In my mind it has always been about how bad you want it................with discipine, dedication, and a little pre planning you can do amazing things at any age.
