Something for you "young" guys to aim for

Forgot to mention in my last post...
On my 69th birthday last week, I went to the gym and in addition to my usual weights and core work, I did 8 pullups (dead hang to chin over bar) and 50 pushups (without stopping - the last 10 were hard). Something for you young guys (under 69) to aim for in the future.


  1. Hi Bob,

    Happy Birthday! That is outstanding!


  2. Yes, Happy B'lated B'day Bob. You have ONE year to get fit for the next age-group! I have no hope of matching you on that gym work - hopelessly weak upper body and poor power/weight ratio. 3 pullups at best.

  3. Good effort with pull ups ( we call them chin ups down here). Difficulty here is getting up to the bar. I am hesitant to jump up to grasp the bar when I may fail to make the hight. :-)
