comment Shoulder pain during pull ups
@Kneel-Before-ZOD - the pain is still there, but after the first set of 10 it goes away. I'm assuming is arthritis and the movement pumps fluid into the joint to reduce the pain. Just part of life and being over 50

comment Progressing to a new program
I haven't tried strong lifts, but I did do MadCow and thought that was a great pure linear program - 2 cycles and then moved on to 5/3/1

comment Progressing to a new program
I'm actually back on 5/3/1 - cycle 4. I was looking for something 'new' and found 5/3/1 with a little customization was best for me - thanks

comment Squats with the Smith Machine
Not trying to be sarcastic...but I have strong feelings about focusing on the primary lifts :)

comment Squats with the Smith Machine
@DanAndrews - if 'standard' (non smith machine) squats are better for you - why not focus on them? I know we should do many different things, but shouldn't we focus on the primary lifts and use accessory lifts secondary? FredikD wanted my opinion regarding smith machines (anything to add)...and my base feeling is that the best exercise that you can do is a standard back squat...then if you have time: dead lifts, bench, overhead press, rows...and if you have energy after that - overhead squats, front squats, rack pulls...and if you have energy after that hill sprints
