I have sort of a dual goal - get my weight to 190 or get a 6 pack, whichever comes first, while continuing heavy weight training.

It feels like I'm forever moving towards it but never getting there. The hint that a six pack is just around the corner always seems to be there (you can just barely see it in certain lighting). It feels like I am busting my ass forever just to maintain "OK". I feel like I should be getting further given the effort expended.

But perhaps I'm blind to what I actually am achieving. It seems like I look the same, and my weight sits pretty steadily in the 205-ish zone. But my 33 inch jeans can now come off without being unbuttoned and I have to retire some shirts because they won't close on my chest or fit around my arms. So why does it look the same??

LMAO: A spotter is the person who is working out with you and is ready to step in to protect you should you lose control of the weight. I am one who doesn't lift more than I can handle when training on my own. However, with a "spotter" I would go heavier, not depending on the spotter to lift the weight but to assist a little so I wouldn't drop the weight, particularly with the bench press, where you can kill yourself. The spotter is to keep his or her eyes on you AT ALL TIMES and not be chatting people up in the gym. I had a trainer tell me once that the building can be on fire but you don't take your eyes off the person you are spotting. That's how intense it is in a hardcore gym. I've seen people spot each other at PF too.

Wow, I assume you did this w/o a spotter? If so, the spotter wasn't very good and if you didn't, thank God for no worse. People have died like that. Bulking is "old school." The look today is lean and mean. Remember, those guys in the magazines are juiced out and can get away with a lot more than you or I can. Whenever I train with anyone, my first objective is to get them in and out of the gym uninjured. Second is proper form. All else will follow. It just takes time.

@Blt2 . All other thing that you mentioned are covered but lifting to heavy is what I did. I was seeking my one time max on chest fiyes. I was reading in flex(another mistake for me I over do every thing) at the time triple H was working out with 110 llbs as was I I thought I need to find my one rep max so I put 130 llbs on the dumbells I did 1 and was going for 2 and about half way through it there was a loud pop and I dropped the weighs. That was almost 4 years ago. The good news is I finally got started 3 weeks ago and I am taking baby steps. I Do HIIT for cardio and I'm just going to make my body dense. To Hell with bulking up I'm as big as I need to be. I've never worked much with a trainer and you look like you know what your doing so feel free to offer any words of wisdom.

57 today is not old for weight training. This is what possibly happened, one or all of the following: You probably lifted too heavy, too often, poor nutrition, poor form. All of the foregoing can cause injury. There is a nutrition company named Parrillo Performance. I've used his eating and supplement plan in the past. Parrillo says there is no such thing as over training; it's under eating (good quality eating that is). Check it out.

Our dog. It would be *so* easy to turn back over, pull the covers over our heads and go back to sleep, but she gets so utterly excited. She dances around the room until we get moving, her tail going a mile a minute. It's just enough to get us up and running in the morning.

Love it "I go to the crossfit gym and do whatever the sadistic trainer tells me."

My motivations:

- I don't want to look like I don't give a damn.

- Keep my mind from going. There has been a lot of research in the news recently, pointing out that good physical conditioning helps keep your mind sharp too.

- Sex! I want to keep having great sex as long as I can, with attractive women, and that won't happen if I'm not in good physical condition.

Of course, these are all long-term motivations. On a day-to-day basis, what works for me is routine (same thing every morning), and turning off my mind. I go to the crossfit gym and do whatever the sadistic trainer tells me.
