    Jack,
    the back seems pretty good. The rest has really gone to hell :supergrin:.
    Yeah, I'm alternating free weights and the FnCNC weekly. So far, so good. Treading fairly lightly for a while. But, it is fun, just getting back into it. I've been checking in on you guys for the past few months, some great material. You guys are a a great group.

    Man, I suspect we are a bad influence on you. Don't let us influence you towards free weights. Health is more important.

    Naw, Jack. The influence is purely positive. When I say free weights, I mean most of the ones I use are plastic, only have one digit, and come in bright colors. Oh, and i can only use them when the Ladie's Flexercise Class is not using them.
    One thing I have learned, too much of the same routine can make my back hurt. So, i change up weekly. Like I noted, so far, so good. And I'm really 'trimming' my routines to more practical lifts and movements. That let's me keep the training duration short, but intense. Learned that here from studying some of the great base strength threads.

    How long have you been off? I always suggest a good month of cardio and bodyweight stuff only unless your body is adjusted. Stick to the push-ups, pull-ups, body weight squats, lunges, etc.

    Don't forget to STRETCH. I think stretching is one of the most important and absolutely the most neglected part of strength training that I see most people do. Stretch EVERYTHING, bi's, tri's shoulders, lats, low back, hams, quads, calves, etc.

    How do you stretch you "bi's"? My elbows only extend so far.

    And, why are the "bi" muscles and "tri " muscles possessive?

    Try this: Stand with a wall to the right. Point arm straight out to the right and place right palm on the wall with fingers pointing backward. Now rotate about a vertical line, counterclockwise if viewed from above. I don't know if that's textbook, but seems to stretch mine, although that's seldom a priority.

    Supposedly. I guess I should've said that your z-axis goes from feet to head and to perform a positive z-axis rotation.

    Actually, most people wouldn't refer to me as an engineer now that I'm an academic. I can explain the heck out of virtual work now, though...

    We have a TV, but never watch it. The kids watch dora the exploder, etc., but that's about it. Total garbage otherwise, best I can tell.

    Smile at virtual work? Next time I teach that, I'm going to wear a magician's outfit or something and tell the students that the Principle of Virtual Forces is literally supernatural magic. I think they'll go for it.
