Strength Matters for Geezers

Instapundit » Blog Archive » MARK RIPPETOE: Strength Training For People My Age….

I’m ten years older than Rippetoe, and nowhere near as strong.  But I’m squatting and deadlifting more than three times as much as I was in February when I started the program, and I’m close to doubling my press and bench.

I’ve got a thousand bucks invested in the equipment, which will likely last me the rest of my life.  Would you pay a thousand dollars to make yourself three times as strong as you are now by Christmas?

About Bill Quick

I am a small-l libertarian. My primary concern is to increase individual liberty as much as possible in the face of statist efforts to restrict it from both the right and the left. If I had to sum up my beliefs as concisely as possible, I would say, "Stay out of my wallet and my bedroom," "your liberty stops at my nose," and "don't tread on me." I will believe that things are taking a turn for the better in America when married gays are able to, and do, maintain large arsenals of automatic weapons, and tax collectors are, and do, not.
