Ok, the reason I put the word hybrid in quotation marks is because I really feel I may be using this word incorrectly. I am interested in finding out if there is a weight training discipline that is a cross between powerlifting and body building. Hope someone out there can help me.
I am 5' 8", 145 lbs. and 58 years old. Recently I benched 170 lbs. I "did" 175 lbs. about a month ago, but I think the spotter gave me a little too much assistance. Now, I know this is not impressive but I am please with my progress. I have only returned to lifting about 2 months ago. Looking for a good overall program that is the "hybrid" type.
Also, any information on diet would be great.
I am living and working in China and was pleasantly surprised to find a gym in my neighborhood. Now this is not your modern gym that you can find in the downtown of any major Chinese metropolis (and pay through the nose for). This gym reminds me of the seedy little weight room I started out in years ago. The owner has done a good job of stocking it with free weights. Now Chinese weight rooms of this type can be interesting. Guys here will smoke while working out. Many guys will workout in their street clothes. Everyone here is friendly and supportive.
Anyway, I do digress, but didn't feel like making a second post.
