    Perhaps, but I didn’t get down to 170 until I retired and started hiking 5 miles a day. I do arm exercises to keep my circulation good in my arms after a fall. Inelastic tissue developed in my arm which I have worked out and replaced with elastic.

    As for hiking, I have joined hiking groups in the Baltimore/DC area and we have some great natural hiking trails here. Some of the hikes are thru urban areas, like the one we did in DC from Union Station to the National Arboretum and then distilleries and breweries near Union Market.

    I'm lucky enough to live near a handful of NY state parks which have tons of woodland acreage and trails. Plenty deep enough to hear nothing but nature...so wonderful for my sanity and as exercise, it can't be beat.

    Just had a good workout with minimal shoulder pain. Hopefully my shoulder is rehabilitating,finally. I had to fight the urge to go heavy, and do more sets.

    That sounds encouraging. Do you typically vary your rep range?

    Yes. I usually try 12-15 reps, but less sets. I use the old pyramid method. But the days of doing 5-6 reps with heavy weight are over. At this age I'm not interested in building any mass, just burning fat, get heart rate up, etc.
