    And here's me thinking I'm doing well with heavy metal -

    Get Stronger With The StrongLifts 5x5 Routine

    Still, after only 6 months I am demonstrably stronger than at any other time in my life (age 54).

    That is a good routine. As long as you stick to it consistently you will see good results. You might hit a plateau eventually and will need to switch things up a bit but that is the same with any routine.

    Be careful and patient and there is no real reason why this should happen unless you are incredibly unlucky.

    HTH.

    In the end I did RTFM and still coked it up (well I think I did, still not certain). It claimed one 2.5L tin would do 2-3 coats of my garage, and said for the first coat "dilute 25% with water". When I'd used nearly the whole tin doing the first tin, I wondered if it perhaps meant dilute TO 25%... looks nice now it's done though. The lack of dust is wonderful.

    Up to 6 pull-ups wrists-in. Only 3-4 wrists-out though.

    Anyone know good exercises for bulking your calves? My thighs (and arse) are all muscled from cycling nearly every day but my lower legs are now spindly in a toned way rather than just spindly.

    Did it!

    My 100 burpee time with jump and press up is now under 10 minutes!

    Managed it in 9:41 but that was immediately after doing a leg workout and the day after a hard back workout so might be able to shave more time of it.
