    Jim, I am in awe of flyers that can do your type of sets. I am. I am out of breath after every significant set. I do not know how you guys do that, but I really want to be in that group (and I am trying!).

    there are 2 things that are required to do fly:
    1) timing
    2) strength/endurance
    if you dont have the strength/endurance to keep your timing...you die
    if you dont have the timing it doesnt matter how much strength/endurance you have...you will die
    when you lose either you go vertical and its "game over man, game over!

    Steve...I agree...the other part I think plays a role is as we age is "core strength". When the core dies, the legs die, then the arms die and you go vertical. as I age I am trying to do more core strength training a 2-3 days a weeks.
