#306 - Modifying Linear Progression for Seniors

Matt and Scott discuss several ways to modify linear progression for senior trainees. Seniors have many challenges to overcome when they first start training with barbells: low muscle and bone mass, low testosterone levels, obesity (others have very low bodyweight), lack of mobility in their joints, and a general state of deconditioning. Consequently, seniors often get the best results by modifying the typical approach to linear progression.

 

To start, Matt and Scott recommend senior lifters acquire a 15lbs  barbell. While some lifters will be able to start squatting and deadlifting with a standard 45lbs bar, many will struggle to press a 45lbs bar. Some will require a 15lbs bar for all the lifts, so it's a useful tool to have in your arsenal.
