Thanks, Stu! Of course I'm not the only "old people" around here!

I know you're not, but you're the one that expressed an interest in the subject.

OK. And thanks, again. I hope the others are interested, even if they didn't say so.

That article is a nice counter argument to Body by Science that many older people pay attention to. I was at the YMCA yesterday at 8AM. The average age it the Y at that hour is likely over 60. The variety of training styles was quite broad, and most were likely effective, but the ones that stuck out to me were the ones with the very slow movements with relatively light weights. If you're not trying to maximally accelerate the weight during the concentric, you're not building power. I think it was Kenny C that said that lifting slow makes you slow.
