Here’s a message I received from Hank in the U.K.
Many years ago on the margin of a news website I saw your banner, that was in the 90’s when that was a thing…banner ads.
I’m glad I responded.
I had just started recovering from herniating 3 lumbar discs and was in horrible shape. I couldn’t lift weights for obvious reasons even though my therapist wanted me to, it hurt in all the wrong ways.
I began implementing all you taught in Combat Conditioning and do today. The magnificent 7 are my exercise staple and at 59.9 years old I shame many of my peers and a lot younger than me. They have never hurt my knees or anything else. I just get a little sore when I up the count when it’s time.
I don’t go overboard either. I vacillate between 50-100 because I want to maintain more than build as I’m super active at work and I hike a lot as well.
One last tidbit. I lived at sea level for years and would go to Colorado yearly to ski. At 10k feet you get pretty sick and tired if not conditioned well. A few months before leaving I’d up my squat count and suffer no ill effects when skiing at that elevation. Hindu Squats worked great for ski training! You might want to share that with people too, Matt!
Thanks and tell the squat trolls to piss off! As the Brits like to say…
El Furecat: Thank you for the note, Hank. It’s great to see you’re still whomping butt. Keep moving. It’s hard to take down a moving target.
