I have to agree with Buff’d: for older lifter especially the Plazma, MAG-10, and Indigo-3G protocol is just great. I am mid-60s and started this protocol seriously about two years ago. In that time I’ve gained about ten pounds, but to my eye (and my wife’s…) I have lost body fat while gaining strength and muscle size. My old pants fit fine in the waist but some are getting tight in the thighs, and my shirts are getting tight through the chest, shoulders, and arms.
I use 2 or 3 servings of Plazma with every workout (normally 4 times a week) and do 2 MAG-10 pulses every day, before lunch and dinner. I follow the directions for Indigo-3G, though I usually take 5 instead of 6, just to stretch the budget. One word of caution though: If you are starting back at weights in your late 50s after a long layoff, try to progress slowly rather than too quickly; otherwise you risk seriously injuring a tendon, ligament, or joint right away and not being able to continue. Been there, done that. Good luck with it all![/quote]
My workouts wil seem ridiculously light and easy to anyone here, i am resisting the urge to start chasing ‘plates’ (more weight) and i have a very different attitude to it this time. Last time i was here was almost a reaction to a job that i was beginning to hate and i could take out some anger and stress in the gym. Now i am in a much better mindset, the last year has been almost continous physical work so i have generally improved things like core stability just by shifting everything from bags of cement, rocks, soil etc.
The actual workouts are kind-of the icing on the cake ! but geared soon towards the specific idea of preventing later age related frailty.
What i am intending to do is get everything in place for a harder push for a 3 month period , the supps will be an expensive part of that but i believe worth it.
