Intro: In my early 40s. 6', 175#. I didn't get into strength training until my mid 30s, when I got Enter the Kettlebell and a 16kg bell. Have gradually been getting stronger and working through accumulated injuries and issues since then. For the last few months, I've been doing PTTP. Worked up to a 5RM of 285# on the deadlift and 145# on the floor press. I've liked the strength increases and short time requirements of PTTP. Adding some lean mass is a goal, so I'm planning on switching over to the Russian Bear for about 6 weeks.
