bobc,

You are an inspiration and I am not going to bolster the jokers around here. That's ok, they are in your corner in their own goofy way.

I will join you on this side by side and see how we both do. Only I won't post any pictures since it may be moved by Kalypso to be into the Wildlife section.

I am rooting for you. I may post one of my guns though. Used to compete in bodybuilding but without the steroids.

Thanks buddy.

Don't expect too much out of me too fast. I'm 47, and you see how out of shape I am.

I am not too far behind you I am 44 and recovering still from a ACL rebuild jobbie. That got me online researching and learning about rehab. I do have a B.S. in Phys. Ed. with emphasis in Physical Therapy. I went into teaching instead and left after two years. Never went back for the last eighteen years. Got involved heavily into coaching soccer at the select level and continued to play until two years ago I heard my knee go "crunch". Complete tear of ACL and radial tearing of medial meniscus. Had 25% taken out. Patellar tendon transfer and two titanium screws later I am just about ready to go full tilt boogie again.

Attached is a instamatic shot of me back in the day..

Tall order to get back to this..

Gonna give it a shot..

Dude... You where pumped up...

I am going to train strictly for endurance. I don't want to get bulky, just tone, and loose some weight. And get my cardio back to what it was when I could run 6 to 10 miles.

The best of anything...books, weights, any kind of tool...is only useful if it gets put to it's intended use. In my experience former athletes tend to recall their glory days and many give themselves too vigorous a routine when they relaunch. Avoid that pitfall. The farther away from perfection you are, the more you benefit from the simplest efforts. Start easy, but use that equipment regularly, rain or shine. I have no doubt that you know this. But it doesn't hurt to be reminded. From up here in the frozen north, we are pulling for you.

Bob, as you know in order to be successful you must set goals for yourself!

In your case, I think going from a C-cup to a B-cup in 60 days is doable! I'm right behind you buddy.

Appreciate the sage advice. No need to be in any hurry at this stage in my life. I will go for it though and know that slow and steady is better than fast and getting burned out or injured.
