  • Hey guys! Looks like you guys pulled out some great numbers this round. I just wanted to stop in and give an update. I finally healed from my injury... At least 95%, it generally doesn't bother me anymore. I was able to actually start doing cardio again this week for the first time. ANd I got 4 days of cardio in during the…
  • Good Evening Everyone... I've been doing good this week. Still no cardio. But diet is on point, and I did do Leg Day on Friday. I did an extra workout on Thursday and I did some Extra Chest work on Saturday. In fact I benched 100 Pound dumbbells for the first time in 17 years and did an instagram video of it for fun! Hmmm…
  • Update from last night... Evening Guys... 😎 A little better day today... Less painful then yesterday. Our New Clothes dryer was delivered as well and installed. (But they did a bad job of it, but at least we can wash and dry clothes). Workouts are going a long way to making me feel alive and moving forward in a good…
  • FYI, I took you advice. Definitely slowed things down today, and refocused just on today moment by moment. As far as pain goes today, it was actually pretty good. Unfortunately I used Nyquil last night, and um I slept like a baby, and work up loser then I have in a long time. (can't do that again tonight though). I see my…
  • This is my first official kick in the Teeth. A birthday party, and some bad decisions, has literally ballooned me over night. On top of the never ending pain issues I'm at a pretty low point in my journey at the moment. I"m going to have to pull up my socks and just try and focus on one day at a time this week. Name:…
  • Current Mini Goal... Being able to bench 100lb dumbbells for at least 5 reps. I didn't think I would have a chance in heck to get there this year, as I only started lifting on May 24th of this year. But I've managed 10 reps of 85 pounds yesterday, so I'm moving up to 90 pounds next Wednesday. And I can already handle at…
  • This is always a fun topic. But sure, tons of people around here practice some sort of fasting. I don't eat Sunday... Basically 36 hours straight from Saturday Dinner to Monday Breakfast. Been doing it all year. Works for me, and I do it for lots of reason. Not saying I always will either, I probably won't but for now I…
  • Okay Guys... So my spurt of lower back pain, that took away my butt cheek and legs / ankle pains, reverted back to no lower back pain, and all the other pains coming right back. There was no island of tranquility either, it's all on a sliding scale it appears. It's been a rough couple of days again... But life goes on and…
  • Something that helps me. We are now and will always be a result of our actions. We choose our own fate each and every day. If you do cardio and/or weight train 3-5 days a week, and maintain a Calorie deficit. One day someone will pass you in the grocery store and say to themselves, "Wow, look at that person, they obviously…
  • Afternoon! It all depends... Depends on many factors. Generally Lower rep counts build strength over endurance and size, and higher rep counts build endurance and size over strength... And I often do 8-12 which is a happy medium. Also the lower the rep count you go, generally you should add more sets so over all time under…
  • Good evening Guys and Gals, I tell yah, the lack of cardio continues to pay positive dividends in the weight lifting arena... But it's putting a big ole hurt on my heart rate. Lifts are going up up up!!! 💪😜 100lb DB Rows.. Np. 105 next week. (I'm starting to see a future where I will actually need the 165-pound Expansion…
  • An update to anyone that has interest. (If any... lol) I reiterated some about the products I'm taking, as I posted else where, but I'll leave it mostly intact as it's pretty concise and might make more sense then my initial attempt. More importantly I have some proof that it may actually be working. I gained 3 pounds this…
  • Name: Poobah1972 Weigh Day: Monday Past weight: 350.6 Current weight: 353.6 --- Win some lose some? But this was expected, and in some ways may indicate the plan I hatched recently is having a good effect. (What is this crazy guy talking about you might wonder?) Well... I can't recall if I mentioned it specifically in this…
  • I'm in... Every morning I would have a full breakfast.. nothing crazy. Couple Eggs, couple bacon, couple toast, lots of butter. Then on my way to work every day I would stop at Macdonalds and get 2 Sausage Egg Mcgriddles, or other sandwich combo, with 2 hashbrowns, and a coffee. Then for Lunch I would take off to Tim…
  • Afternoon Strangers... (yeah yeah, I'm the Stranger.. I know). 😆 It's official, I am 100% doing better this week then last. I could have finished the whole day at work today if I really wanted to... But I decided I would rather go home and have an hour power nap. And it was another one of those completely lost in a Deep…
  • You are straight up incredible. Hell of a job! :smiley: 👍💪 Really excited for you and the potential legs too!!! WOot Woot!
  • Yes I'm logging the full calories for the 30 gram's of L-Arginine... But mostly as it's a rather large serving with a significant amount of calories (120 cals). I don't really concern myself over regular supplements that come in pill forms like you say, it's not really worth the trouble. (Unless I was taking an abundance…
  • Long day today... Didn't manage to fit in a sleep, just a lay down. lol Workout ran long... But work out happened. Geeky weight lifting news of the day. I totally nailed a full 10 reps all by myself pushing the 80 Pound dumbbells in the first set. So yeah baby, maybe this old dog isn't done yet. Next week 85 Pounds! 💪🤓👍…
  • @Bluetail6 So very sorry for you loss. Sending you some strength!
  • Erg... I sure hope life doesn't evolve to the point I need a back specialist. I do have an appointment with my family doctor on December 2nd. I'm hoping I get better long before then. But I'm open to anything really that will get me back on track. :)
  • Yo Yo Yo!!! Not a bad night. Still came home a bit early, but my short 1-hour nap was divine. You know one of those perfectly comfortable sleeps, like you were a baby sleeping in your momma's arms... 🙂 And the workout!!!! Wowza! Turns out there is another bright side to not being able to do cardio. I seem to be going…
  • Thanks... So we are thinking along similar lines. I appreciate the input. I'll go full calories and only 7.5 grams of protein. Should be close enough. ;)
  • I appreciate the link... And yeah, keto while it does increase HGH output as does fasting. Fasting doesn't actually help anyone build muscle. I guess I just like fasting on Sundays for a whole bunch of reasons. But to increase muscle mass due to HGH, yeah that's not going to happen here. Keto from what I've read is known…
  • That spider is way creepy... Thank you. lol --- Name: Poobah1972 Weigh Day: Monday Last weight: 354.5 Current weight: 350.6 I'm still having a rough time, and I'm tired of sounding like Johnny Downer. I literally sat in a lazy boy for 8 hours on Sunday (cause it was comfortable)... Didn't go shopping, didn't even try to…
  • Evening everyone! (well should of posted this last night.) Interesting day... Same ole situation at work. Still haven't made a full day of work, but after my lay down for a few hours I felt pretty decent. Leg workout was phenomenal not too much pain interfering which is nice. Got my goblet squats up to 65 pounds, which is…
  • Good Evening Guys... The Sports Therapist lady... "KIM" took no prisoners today. She even pulled out the elbows and vigorously ran them fall around my tailbone, trying to forcibly trying to flatten every little nodule that existed... I literally almost cried out for her to stop a few times, I've never quite experienced…
  • Congratulations!!! I'm pretty much in a very similar boat as you!!! Isn't life wonderful? :) Looking forward to more success for the of us. 😃👍💗
  • Congratulations... Very happy for you!!! :)
  • Good Evening Everyone... Busy *kitten* day today... So, I boil this down as much as possible. Saw Sports Therapist, got a hot TEMS style application to my tailbone / *kitten*. Got my tailbone / *kitten* acupunctured. Then I got my tailbone *kitten* forcibly deep tissued massaged with some sort of lubicrant. She wasn't…
  • Name: Poobah1972 Day: Monday Last weight: 353.1 Current weight: 354.5 Gained a 1.4 pounds... Meh, kinda of constipated this morning? Along with a grueling leg day, and hard days work saturday.... I figured as much. It's all good though. Not to much swelling that I can see, nothing more then I normally get I think...…
