My routines are geared for maintenance, not gains. I am too fragged to worry about doing heavy weights anymore. The idea is maintain functional strength and cardio - without injuring myself. When you're in your late 30's, you'll probably know what I mean.

In general though, when going for gians, how does 1 set work so well?

No, I don't know what you mean. Unfortunatelyat 38 I've just not smart enough to listen. I was actually thinking about this last night and I realized that I actually feel great overall; beside the knee and neck injuries. Getting older just means playing smarter; though there is still a dumb kid in all of us that refuses to believe we can't do it all.

For these exercises Matt, are these the order you are doing them in? I would almost reverse them myself to work the larger muscles first. Just some thought.

That is the order that I do them in. I fly in the face of the "big muscle first" workout convention, now that I am using medium (wussy) weights. I have always preferred to do deadlifts last, anyways.

Plyo-jumps (leap? bound?) across my back yard (150ft/50m). 10 seconds rest, then the other direction. Light jog both directions (no rest in between), followed by walking both directions. All this considered 1 cycle.

Aiming to get 8-10 cycles each time (approx 20 minutes), followed by short Pilates cooldown (approx 8-10 minutes).

Current workout, focusing on static contractions to minimize joint pain:

Workout 1:

dips/military squats (squats holding weight over head)/deadlift superset - 5 sets, with one minute jump rope in between

Workout 2 -

1.5 mile jog (with the dog) + 5 sets plyo leaps, followed by 10 minutes pilates cooldown

Workout 3 -

5 minutes jump rope, followed by alternating sets of military walk (walking with weight over head) and curl-walk (walking with mid-position static contraction bicep-curl), with 1 minute jump-rope in between sets. 2 sets each. Pilates cooldown.

Workouts 2 and three depend on weather. Joints happier now.

My wife does the exact same workout; probably with the same amount of resistance; you big girly man.

Just kidding of course. Glad you are still active Matt so a big pat on the back.
