The weight room at my Y is a little narrow. Other than that it's fine.

I'm fifty, which means that I stopped giving a crap about pop music, oh, around the death of John Bonham (and Lennon), 1980. Pretty much everything that followed the second generation of rock (Beatles, Stones) is just a footnote. Which is why kids still say to me, "What were the SIXTIES like?" Well,...

I see no problem in writing "secrets" on paper and NOT SHOWING ANYONE. If the wikileaks dude could download this information, that probably means that anyone could.

The best tea I ever had is PG Tips. Over and out.

Good thing I found out about it (in Keith Richards' autobiography), now that I've sworn off coffee for good.

At age 50, the gym is the only place in the world where I feel calm. Lifting is life; the rest is just recuperation! So what do I do when I'm not lifting weights? I think about lifting weights. I mean, do I look like a person who wastes time worrying about politics? Good. I didn't think so. I'm tryi...

It took me a year to find my dead-lifting form, so don't sweat it if you don't find your form overnight.

For warming up shoulders for my military-press workout, I do around 6 sets of 5 reps with 135 lbs. Then I add two 10-lb. plates and work from there.

I saw a guy on line at Shake Shack who was obviously on roids. He looked like the Thing from the Fantasic Four, except he wasn't orange.

I came up in the '60s, and the big myth then was weight-lifting would make you "muscle bound." Don't lift weights if you play baseball; you'll get muscle bound and you won't be able to swing the bat. Re steroids: if they are not good for you, why do them. Did Louis Cyr have steroids? The same can be...

Got my first dumbbell/barbell set (Weider, Union City, N.J.) in 1968, when I was eight. Enough preamble: here goes. Lift weights for yourself. There's been only one thing that never let me down in my life: weight lifting. Respect the weights, and be kind to your joints and muscles. Never underestima...

I believe that people should be allowed to carry phasers set on "stun." Or any kind of weapon which will immobilize the attacker. (I remember years ago, a Chinese boy was trick-or-treating in America and was shot dead because he entered the person's house. What a waste.) If a "concealed weapon" fall...
