I remember a guy in the gym back in the early 80s who used DMSO and he smelled like garlic.

He stunk.

Here's an article about it:

I`m scheduled to train legs today but we got at least a foot of show over the weekend so that`s not happening.

I would train at home but I can`t do justice to a leg day at home......I could do chest & back but I think I`ll be shovelling for quite a while today so I`ll train over the next 4 days to get it all in and not miss a workout.

I got my leg day tomorrow. I've been doing so much running my legs feel incredibly weak. I read your log but I don't comment enough. Keep up the hard work.

I read your also and I wish I could muster up my lack of typing skills to go into as much detail as you do.........very good stuff Rich.....I type with my right index finger only so I don`t include a lot of nuances I do for each exercise or other such details......I`ll try to add more though cuz reading my log is like watching paint dry.

I got bored even updating it but my enthusiasm is on a high right now so I`ll start again.

Keep hanging and banging brother!  ;)
