    Yep, this has been out a few years. The very first ones had boot up issues right out of the box. Sometimes just a blue screen. This one is one of the "newer" old ones. So far it's passing cal.

    No, but the concept definitely applies.:thumbsup:

    What softened the experience is the fact that my monthly retirement check is bigger than what I got when I was working.

    I just think there are seasons in life when we have to graduate and move on.

    I used to lift [well, lift, eat, poop, sleep, and then lift again]. Now, I just do pushups and walk on the incline treadmill [or use the rowing machine].

    I took a wider grip than you on the bench [because I started out as a bodybuilder, not a powerlifter].

    I notice you don't really bridge [your lower legs are relaxed], which means you are stronger than you think. Kind of like doing a pull up with a loose body is a lot harder than stiffening everything up [or like tensing your core when deadlifting makes you stronger].

    Actually, I had a really bad habit of doing the same thing ...

    However, if I bring my elbows in, squeeze my shoulder blades in, arch and create a tension filled bridge all the way to my feet [flat on the floor], I am MUCH stronger. It creates a more stable base, which made it easier for me to really focus upon the rep; I liked doing REALLY slow negatives because it builds strength quicker than the positive movement [I would try to explode up quickly on the positive movement].

    Smart of you not to go down all the way to your chest: sparing those last few inches doesn't hurt your strength and really saves your shoulders over time [many years]. Believe me.:D

    You're a beast, Dude.:muscleflexing:
