    Hope I look that good when I’m 60!

  • Michael Richwine

    I’m 68, and I just do barbell squats, deadlifts, overhead press, bench press, and chinups.  I think they do me a lot more good than what you are suggesting.  You can start as light as you need to, keep perfect form, and add weight slowly. Squats and deadlifts provide all the ab work I need. I stretch thoroughly after each workout.

      This video may help some coming back from back injuries, not for everybody. I am putting up with some lower left back pain for the last 6 years. Just now trying to do something about it. My bad!

  • E D

    works for over 75 too!

  • Mickey Shanahan

    First, I think it’s funny that some people think you’re presenting this as the only exercises a guy should do. I’d like to see you do a series of these videos for guys over 60. You have a great, relaxed delivery which I think helps as the worst habit I have as I age is trying to go too aggressively after exercise.

    My PC assistant Lia (35) thinks your really “Fine” !

  • B Remlap

    Its great that you can show us older guys how to stay fit, but I’d like to see an older guy show us these exercise to be more convincing.

    I’m 60 and those were good exercises that I can do. I’ve looked at other YouTube video’s and they had difficult exercise that they said were for men over 60. Yeah if the person has been diligently lifting weights for years. Thanks!

  • Kevin Cassidy

    It is so wonderful to get some solid information in a direct, quick, and accessible format. Others presenting onYouTube could learn from watching you.
