  1. WOW! Now this is encouraging. And it looks like it is fun too, not like changing the weight plates on a barbell or having to wait for someone to finish a set so you can use the weight you are needing.

    VERY Cool! I’ll be back the beginning of this coming month to see what other goodies you have to share and hopefully by then have a few bucks I can invest in chaning the course of my health.

    You are doing a service here and I appreciate it!

      Hi Linda, thanks for your kind words.
      I strongly suggest that you start with your resistance training with the Lifeline 15/15 workout http://makeitez4me.com/best-30-minute-workout-routine/
      You can start the workout with no equipment at all just to get the form down. You can then use soup or coffee cans for resistance or dumbbells if you have them.
      I think that you will enjoy the results of working out just 19 minutes three times a week and eventually want your own Lifeline cables. I’ve been using them for about 30 years and I could not recommend them any higher.

      I’m here if you have any questions or need any encouragement.

    I didn’t do my Push/Pull workout right after my LL 15/15 I took a break before doing…

    PUSH/PULL SUPERSET
    1 R4 cable (40 lbs) + 1 R5 (50 lbs) + 1 R7 (70 lbs) = 160 lbs
    With the door attachment, Press and then without pause Row.
    No rest between sets.
    15 reps, 12 reps, 10 reps, 8 reps, 6 reps, 4 reps, 2 reps = 57 reps

    PULLDOWN/CHIN
    with1 R4 cable (40 lbs) + 1 R5 (50 lbs) + 1 R7 (70 lbs) = 160 lbs
    20/19 one minute rest between superset
    12/8 one minute rest between superset
    10/5

    After my LL 15/15 workout
    Total: 90 reps

    PUSH/PULL SUPERSET
    2 R4 cables (80 lbs) + 1 R7 (70 lbs) = 150 lbs
    With the door attachment, Press and then without pause Row.
    No rest between sets.
    12 reps, 10 reps, 8 reps, 6 reps = 36 reps

    PULLDOWN/CHIN with 2 R4 cables (80 lbs) + 1 R7 (70 lbs) = 150 lbs
    12/10 one minute rest between superset
    10/8 one minute rest
    8/6

    No jogging today no LL 15/15 workout first.

    PUSH/PULL SUPERSET
    2 R4 cables (80 lbs) + 1 R7 (70 lbs) = 150 lbs
    With the door attachment, Press and then without pause Row.
    No rest between sets.
    20 reps, 12 reps, 10 reps, 8 reps, = 50 reps

    PULLDOWN/CHIN with 2 R4 cables (80 lbs) + 1 R7(70 lbs) = 150 lbs
    12/10 one minute rest between superset
    10/8 one minute rest
    8/6

    I do need to increase the resistance and reduce the number of reps.

    I don’t do a Push/Pull workout every time I do a LL 15/15 workout, but today I did.

    PUSH/PULL SUPERSET
    2 R4 cables (80 lbs) + 1 R7 (70 lbs) = 150 lbs
    With the door attachment, Press and then without pause Row.
    No rest between sets.
    20 reps, 10 reps, 8 reps, 6 reps = 44 reps
    I went from 12 reps for the first set to 20 reps. The second set of 10 reps was to failure.

    I should move up in resistance and reduce the number of reps to build more muscle.

    Very impressive, Phil. I love the whole structure of your video, from the personal narrative at the beginning, explaining about the cables, to the scrolling marquis throughout the video. Your music choice and background scenery was on point. You definitely got in a pretty solid work-out. Great job, Phil.

      Hey Coach, thanks very much.
      I’m trying to get the point across that folks don’t have to spend hours in the gym to get a great workout, but you do have to put in some effort.
      If you like your workout and look forward to the next one, that’s at least half of the effort.

      Hi Ed, thanks for the visit. There is no doubt about it I am in best shape I’ve been in 30 years. Best part, I love what I’m eating and look forward to my next workout. It doesn’t get any better than that. Unless, it’s being able to inspire somebody else.

    Hello Phil.
    I agree with you totally on time and a good total workout in 15 minutes.
    The video is quite good Phil.
    The attachment definitely enhances the functionality of the cables.
    I have not tried these additional moves,but I know that Triceps move must be a killer.
    You’re looking good old man 🙂
    How many pounds you shed off?

    After my LL 15/15 workout of 100 reps with R6 (60 lbs) cable.

    20/10 one minute rest between superset
    10/8 one minute rest
    8/6
