Default Any big time weight lifters???

Just wondering if there's any people on here that do a lot of weight lifting? Haven't seen anything on here about it and with all of the other random things on here I thought this might fit right in. If you do lift post up some stats, supplements, what ever.

Default More or Less:

The local YMCA is my hangout for three days a week, about 1-1/2 hours per session, for some weight training. I manage 230 on the bench....not too bad for an old coot, I guess....gotta tell you, however, things don't move as easily as they did 55 years ago, but I'm hanging in there at 5-8, 160, 43c-33w, 8% body fat.

Strong lift. 230 isn't too bad.I can imagine though. After playing high school football in Louisiana I was a wicked strong kid and now I look back at my lifts from 1997-2000 and think holy crap I was strong. I am strong now but not as strong yet!

Default Different Approach:

Gaining muscle bulk when one gets beyond 55 is difficult...I can attest to that. So I'm not out to look like a pro body builder or move massive amounts of hardware. My old rotator cuffs complain if I get carried away. I do a routine that terminates in muscle failure at each stage with sufficient intensity to build a sweat. It has taken a long time, but I finally got my chest 10 inches larger than my waist.
I don't use any special diet or muscle-building supplements, but I do supplement with a large amount of vitamin C, the fundamental building block for ligaments, tendons and any other thing in the body composed of collagen...which is pretty much everything. The dose is 2000mg at each meal, 2000mg at 8pm, 2000mg at bedtime, 1000mg at a 3am pee break and 1000mg prior to workout. I use that therapy continuously and forever since its primary benefit is prevention of heart attack.

Default Different Approach:

About that megadose of VC: Last year I started a tear in the supraspinatus tendon in my right shoulder caused by a chronic subacromial impingement....rather painful to say the least.

I backed off weight training to light weights and many good-form reps and, thanks to all that VC, the tendon has almost healed. I'm back to moving the heavier weights again, but with care and good form.

(Five years ago I had shoulder surgery on my left side to repair a tear in the same tendon after suffering years of pain. During those years leading up to the surgery I was not using the high-dose VC therapy.)

I lift at work in our fitness center. I usually bench 205,curl 95,and use the machine weights too. I don't squat since I tore the cartilage in my knee. I need to get more motivated and work harder on rehabing my knee.
Oh yeah,4 sets of 12 for each.

i played football in highschool and we had weight clubs, you added up four maxes and got your weight clubs, the maxes were squat, bench, power clean, and dips, during my senior year i made the 1000 lb club, when i started playing football my sophmore year i didnt make the 500 lb the first time we maxed, but i worked my *** off over the next two years to get bigger, im not as big as i was then i quit squating because i was killing my knees doing to much weight, but im still pretty stout and continue to workout now even tho i quit for a while to give my body a break, and during my football career i started at 220 lbs and got up to 260 lb and i gain 30 of it in one year lol and it wasnt much fat if any...
