    Any older gals out there do stonglift?

    Primal Fuel
    I am nearly 60 and in need of a wt training routine to get me motivated. I have been lifting off and on for nearly 30 yrs but was slacking off these past couple of years. I don't bounce back as quickly as I did in my 30's though.
    Just wondering if there are any older gals out there that have used the Stronglift method. I went to the website but is all about men doing Stronglift. What happened to the gals?

    OOps looks like I forgot the R in stronglift in the title. Sorry.

    I never heard of strongfit? is it like strongman or ironman? I've been lifting for over 20 years and I'm still doing it.

    I'm 48, a former personal trainer. I used to lift, but my goals have changed and I'm now doing Mark's PB Fitness bodyweight workout, which is really working for me.

    I started a slightly modified version of Stronglift this morning.
    StrongLifts 5x5: How to Gain Raw Muscle and Brute Strength | StrongLifts.com

    Since it is geared towards men I am doing the same exercises but am starting with lower upperbody wt. so I don't tear anything. I am doing the same as the men in the squats cuz I have always done heavy lifts for squats.
    Here is the entire workout;
    Workout A
    Squats
    Bench press
    Barbell rows

    Workout B
    Squats
    Overhead press
    deadlift

    I am writing more in my personal forum post here http://www.marksdailyapple.com/forum/thread8053-9.html in a few minutes.
