    Default Over 65 Bench Training

    Just now getting back in shape on the bench. Shoulder issues have put a hamper on weight training.
    Decided to just work on my body weight lifts . . . with a goal of 10 reps (195 body weight) by May (68th B’Day).

    Currently, up to 3 reps (195 lbs.) in 3 weeks of training. Actually feel good lifting daily. Doing several sets of 10 reps @165 lbs . . . Plan to increase 5 lbs weekly. Do not plan on max lifts due to previous shoulder injury.

    I will rest a couple days on weekends. I hope to maintain 10X body weight into my 70’s.

    I added a pad on the bar to keep the bar 1” off my chest . . . trying to prevent more shoulder issues.

    For preventing shoulder injury, try different stretching techniques, which will increase blood flow and let your muscles to become flexible.
