Yes. BigjohnN79 removed it because he felt it didn't belong here. obviously he hasn't really been around in a long time and I explained the situation to him as to why we have that thread. Hopefully he understood that and will let it ride...of course if he doesn't we'll simply keep reposting it.

BTW, just to clarify, I have nothing against BJN79. Even though he's been around here longer then I have, I was around when he still used to post frequently and he always seemed like a good guy. But when you disappear for a while you don't really know what's going on.


Title: Re: *****The New Locker Room*****
Post by: wes mantooth on May 09, 2007, 01:58:25 PM
why would you just come on and start deleting shit? especially if you havent been here in a while....AND havent talked to the other mods as well. Oh well, nothing against bigjohn....or o, dont know either from adam.....

but i will say this...the steroid board is really the only reason i come to getbig. sure...i read some of the other shit, partially for entertainment, mostly because i am in awe daily at the number of idiots on this board. grown men that are dellusional at best...and trying to make a name for themselves on the internet. oh well.....all fun i guess :) :-\

but if the roid board policies change...and the fruit loops start runnin' shit around here....ill just have to find another board.

btw....any suggestions on another board??? ;D

THere's a bunch of cool people on GB, but no shortage of oxygen thieves too.
THe AAS board should be like it is for the most part. Place where guy can quickly get some good info from
experienced peeps who are well meaning. ALso varied experiences. Not one size fits all. There is plenty of
difference in response, guys need to accept that.

I have been in Madrid-Barcelona-Callela etc. and the women there are smokin too. I really like the greek girls better because even the REALLY good looking ones are not full of them selfes. Youīre right, traveling to ASIA has itīs benefits except they should lower the price of deca.

For some reason she does not seem that large to me, except in the right areas.


Heres a very, very HOT Asian woman for you trab, my favorite.  I think shes Thai or Vietnemese.



Title: Re: *****The New Locker Room*****
Post by: trab on May 11, 2007, 05:27:31 PM
Looks Viet or Thai features. With Possibly a little bit of -White guy in the rice paddy- mixed it there too.
When we going? ;D  You'll have all the kickboxers on a squat binge. Warning- you gonna like the girls Luv.

Mellisa looks good in those shots soft and puffy. Hell, she still had margin for a few ice cream bars.
SHe's a trip.   


Title: Re: *****The New Locker Room*****
Post by: Luv2Hurt on May 11, 2007, 05:39:14 PM
I think you are right i do remember reading she is a mix, I thought I read it was Viet and caucassion.  LUV her big almond shaped eyes.

Man that would be a fun trip, you got my mind going on how to make it happen, would be so cool and would be a lot better to go with someone who knows their way around, Im sure I would get to see the real Thailand that way and feel safer too.

Man LUV get some balls and jump (me talking to myself)  Sounds like an experiance of a life time  :)


Title: Re: *****The New Locker Room*****

I consider Bangkok safer than Beloit or Milw or Chi. By a long stretch.
Driving there IS Dangerous. Eating & drinking stuff can be till you figure it out.
If you like Asian girls - Go to the source! They have a lot different attitude than Americans.


Title: Re: *****The New Locker Room*****
Post by: Luolamies on May 12, 2007, 01:50:55 AM
Iīve been to Bangkok and itīs really not that safe. My friend and hes wife went there and this gang attacked them for a few bucks. My friend gave it to them and still they broke a bottle and slashed his throte! He did survive because the CUT wasnīt that deep...

Friends reported that to the cops and they got pissed since the attacker was a son of someone "important." After that, the guy whos son slashed was really pissed that "falangs" (foreigners) had the balls to report him and they but a bounty on his head and the cops tryid to look them and collect the cash!

The finnish embassy had to hide them for a while until he was ready to travel. If our embassy had not warned them theyd propably be dead! Well it helps if you are REALLY big and strong guy, since the thais have no balls to mess with someone who can defend themselfs. So if anyone is going you really have to watch youīre back! Americans have to be extra careful since America equals money equals Bush equals opportunity for the locals...

I have to admitt even though trab says the place is cool and the man has been there, I have not.  The above story is something I would be thinking about, its probally kind of hard for foreigners to blend in well there.  And yes Im sure there are situations here in the US where you can get in similar trouble......BUT........ .

What about the Phillipines or Korea?  I have heard that place is very cool too?


And Bass, those women are great, love the big natural tits and thick asses that NEED to be pounded.

If they did that to anyone associated w/ my family over there - They would envy the dead! Period. On the right night, he'd get a .45 in the head. End of story, and no we wouldn't even pay to cremate his ass. I go sit ringside w/ the BKK detectives. Bang,Bang.  THere are no shortage of criminal assholes in any city of 6,000,000. But I got to say I'll go anywhere in that city at night. I wont do that even in the tame Mid west cities I mentioned.
SHit does work way different over there, and frankly, it's to the foreigners advantage most of the time.
We are sacred cash cows to their economy, and they generally give us extreme latitude compared to their people. Dont mess w/ illegal drugs don't even need be said. You better understand how shit works if thats your thing. Many dopers go there just for that, and the cops will let a lot slide, but idiots w/ no experience in that society are flirting w/ big trouble.
 
MOST crime victims brought it on themself by being incredibly unstreetwise. Underestimating street punks by size will get you gutted before you know what hit you. They dig blades. Guns are nowhere near as common as the USA.
Americans are one of the more well liked foreigners IMO. But some Bar girls told me they prefer Aussies best; Because they get so stinking drunk they forget they paid, and pay twice! ;D

Sorry to hear about the bad experience. The fact this punk is shaking down tourists for a few bucks tell me he's not from all THAT important of mommy & daddy.  He'll end up dead w/ a big bloated belly in the heat on the concreate on the news.  ;D

But Damn! that woman Bass posted has BIG Tits and Round Severe Service  Ass! :P

I think Korea might be really cool (South Korea), they donīt have to rely on tourisim for a livelyhood and they are really proud people. Very honest, friendly and they donīt have twisted complexes against da white man. I practiced and tought Tae Kwon Do for eight years and met lot of Koreans and they are really is easy get along with. Soul has been voted as the 5th safest capital in the world.

I donīt do any rec drugs and i have no idea why someone would risk a life in prison in Thailand for a buz. Well i better get ready, we are hosting they eurovision song contest and itīs kind of a big deal, i really donīt give a shit actually, but the city is filled with hot tourist babes, iīve yet to see greak or italian babes, but tonight iīll prolly go hunting...

Yea, but you look bigger. Actually Arnold is also a hell of a nice guy & has lifted weights before (I believe that's a rarity on getbig). Had a good time - I wish I could've spent a few more days & trained more. It was nice to train with someone other then my wife.

I usually like to workout later anyway like 21.00 because the gym is empty of "tourist" and i really feel stronger later in the day.

Anyone else do this late night workouts?

Update since some dickhead deleted the original thread...

i jogged on a treadmill friday for the first time in 6 months...it felt rather odd but my knee is getting stronger every day. i'm getting 130 degrees of flex out of it now and my good knee has 135 degrees. it's been just over 1 month since the surgery...

i should be squating in about a month with light weights. i've been doing wall squats and one legged leg press for PT so i'm working my way back into normal function.

my right leg is about half the size of my left but i'll get that all back in time...i'm itching for a cycle right now but will wait another two months. still holding steady at 222 with abs and my upper body strength hasn't suffered one bit, in fact my tricep movements have been taking off like crazy.

On days that I KNOW I cant go after work (5:00p.m.)  I go at 3:00 am in the morning its pretty nice that there is maybe 1 other person there.

The lastest I've ever gone is 11:00PM. I still want to go about 3:00ish one day.

Yup...

Going to get back to my roots and do a full bodybuilding protocol. i want to bulk up for about 6 months and then next year try to get lean and mean. i haven't been under 8% BF in about 3 years. i want to see how i look ripped again!

after that i might do a little powerlifting but my main problem is that my deadlift was the only lift that i dominated in. now that i can't deadlift heavy for over a year i really see no reason to do bench only meets. That is why i did so well in WADBL was because i could pull heavy weight.

Sounds like that knee is doing real well. Keep at the last few stubborn degrees ROM.
 They took some chunks of stuff out (Plika?)
that were floating around in mine for yrs. It'd feel like I'd knelt on a casing nail.  Now The leg they did is stronger and more pain free than the other, even though it's not my dominant side. It is still smaller though, even w/ extra work.
Years of favoring the other...  The other one has some issues, but not bad enough to go thru the surgery BS. THAT BITCH HURT!

Yes, that was part of the technique to this exercise, but there is more to it if you want to get the form down right. Did you ever see one of those little, I'm not sure what you call it exactly, but bobbing birds? You know, the ones that swing like a pendulum, you might see one on a desk...this is what that reminded me of.

EXACTLY! But bet he had monster foreams!! Not sure if you remember Phil Hernon who upset Titus one year to turn pro. He worked out at my gym and he always did a version of dips like that and had about a one inch range of motion.

At my gym now, there is a guy who is trying to do a modified crunch and has one hand behind his head brutally pulling on his neck trying to hit his obliques (I think) and his shoulders stay on the ground. He will do hundreds of these every workout...bet he has a good chiro.

Yeah, i know what you guys are talking about, the other day i was doing barbell curls with medium weight (170) and after my set this guy, iīd say around 6" 200lbs 35+ years old. Took the same weight and did something that iīd call jumping-deadlift-squatting-delt-curl  he did 4 of these and after gave me a look like "see i can hang with you" after a couple of days i saw him again and he looked liked he had hurt his back, i wonder how it happened...

funny story.  170lbs is "medium" weight for you on curls?  I have to ask what your form looks like also?  Not saying you don't but man you must be very strong and have some big ass arms!  Whats heavy for you on curls? 

135lbs is heavy for me   :'(

Well iīm currently 5ī10 282 dropped from about 304, iīve been training for ten years. I allways use good form, allways, if i feel that my form is suffering i lower the weight, but because iīm pretty strong (i have been considering strongman competitions for a while, i donīt see a point in using weights that i can rep all day everyday. lately iīve been using 160-170 for barbell curls (when i do them, i like dumbells better) i can use 200 lbs with "ok" form but then i donīt "feel" it the way i should and the form would be awful after two reps so no point in that. As for my other "numbers" i donīt really wanīt to post them, but letīs just say itīs been a LONG time since i saw anyone usings weights even remotely close to mine. I do think itīs partly genetical, most of the men in my family are pretty strong even though most of them have never lifted...

Are you doing the other training that goes along with strongman comp? Tire flips, stone or heavy object carrys, etc? There is a bunch of guys here in Az that do both strongman and Highland games and cool to watch them train. Would kick my little bodybuilder ass for sure!!

I nair (or at least have my wife help out) my back regularly (every three or four weeks). Other then that in the summer I do my chest/stomach at about the same frequency. I can't bring myself to do my arms or legs yet (however, I did shave them once for swimming).

Clippers on the privates and pits, watch the sack and may need a guard.

Other than that, yup, whole body...being Italian in Az is no fun with body hair.

I use the girl shit, Skintimate and Venus (easier grip in shower) on arms, legs, chest and abs once a week. Been doing it so long, no rash or ingrown hairs. Something in the Skintimate that helps with that. Never had the back hair issue luckily.

Highly advise if you have quite some growth, take it down with hair clippers first, see how you like it and go from there. Nair tore me up and did make me rash. Only at contest time will I then use razor on privates and pits, then back to clippers...

And as far as the private parts go, what ever floats your boat, but smooth looks like a little boy.  I like to just trim it close with a clippers and shave the area to keep it compact. and yes as busy said you gotta watch the sack, cause I have nicked it and made it bleed too.  Guys do need to take care of the grooming in that area

Trab is right Udeluz, you're gonna have to do it if you want to do a show...or you can keep the hair and compete....that would be weird.

As for me and hair, I don't know if this is a coincidence or not, but once I started "using" my body hair got even worse...I never had any back hair until I jumped on AAS. I used to shave it myself when it wasn't too bad...that was not the easiest thing to do but I did figure something out...but it's gotten worse over the past couple years or so. Luckily for me though, one of my younger sisters is an astitician, and she can take care of it for me. I've shaved and waxed and waxing hurts like a bitch, but it last a good while. Next step, I'm going to get it lasered her in a few wks, free of charge...hopefully a few sessions of that will take care of it permanently.

I didn't have a single hair on my back until i started using AAS. now i have a rull blown rug.

i just use the clippers with a #1 guard and run that over everything but my legs and ass. i have my girl use the clippers on my back, with a #1 guard it's pretty damn close.

back when i competed in bodybuilding i would shave everything but that is really uncomfortable for me when i sweat.

She said it will last a good 5 or 6 wks but the key is to get it done several times...3 or 4. After each session it grows back less and less until it doesn't grow back at all. No clue what it cost.

Thanks AJ. If you get a chance ask if she knows what it usually costs. You could have her paint your toenails different colors while your there too, I noticed Chuck Lidell does his. Those beauty colleges are a great place to hang out. Full of sleek young women. You'll be back for more..

Done correctly, Injections are safer. Orals like Dianabol, Anadrol,Halo,Methyl test, that are alkalated (sp?) are a bit tough on the insides. Dont rely on them. Dont run long on them.  If useing orals only, your blood level of the stuff will be all over the place. It's a Invitation to unwanted sides. And Not very effective anyway. If your going to use AAS, need to learn proper inj technique, as well as what the different stuff does. Also need learn about antiestrogen stuff, or you'll have a problem.

im not really big into phones....but the blackberry intrigues me a little. might be good for the biz, but its so clunky. i HAVE to have a phone that fits in my pocket (not gonna wear a belt clip)....and i have already smashed 4 flip phones in a year. i crush the flip part with my head when its on my shoulder. i refuse to use one of those headset things...or those gay fucking blueberry....cherry picker....whatever those ear pieces are called. it makes you look like a homeless person that talks to himself, or a nascar pit crew guy.....or a new character on star trek!

Flips are flimsy if you climb w/them or treat ruff. The old Nokia 5165's were indestructable. I slammed a  Crown Vic
hood on one. It stoped it from latching. Didnt hurt the phone a bit. Im not impressed with the new lighter Nokias at all.
Flimsy. Ive busted 2.  Blacbery do seem popular w/  some of the business guys I see.

Not those monster bricks, they were not that much thicker than the new ones (5" X 1.75), but much more solid.
I beat the things up on ladders and brush and what not sometimes. This new shit is too easy to bust.

Holy shit was the gym crowded today. There was no room to do anything. I did Chest & Calves today. The only bench/machine open for the first half hour was the Hammer Strength Decline Machine - so I had to make do with that. It was insane. It was the most crowded Monday I've seen since the first couple weeks of January.

New topic................... .............


How many of you shave your entire body?

I have not been able to get myself to do my arms and legs..

Everything but my head! If you have never shaved before I suggest using the clippers to get as close as you can then follwing up with a chick razor like Venus or something equivalent. For some reason they are not as hard on your skin? Also if you choose to shave your underarms, depending on what style you use, expect some burn from your deoderant! I have been shaving for the last 5 years. I find it easier to just shave once a week. Any longer and the stubble becomes very uncomfortable.

IMO shaving makes EVERYTHING look BIGGER lol!


Title: Re: *****The New Locker Room*****
Post by: musclemass on June 12, 2007, 02:35:05 PM
I agree totally!! "Everything" does look bigger when shaved!! LOL.

I have been shaving my entire body for about 4 years now. I shave a certain body part everytime I get in the shower so I don't have to spend a huge amount of time in there. It really only takes a couple of mins, (legs take a bit longer).

I use the Schick EXTREME 3, disposible razors. They are cheap- $5 for 4 and last forever!! One razor can last me a month- and thats shaving my entire body, including head.

Monday I injected my right glute and by Wednesday morning it was very swollen and sore. I'm not running a fever or anything and I've had this happen before...it seems to always subside in a few days...however, it hurts like a bitch.

We get threads posted all the time with guys asking about this sort of thing, and as you can now see, it happens to all of us. Why, I'm not sure...nicked a nerve, oil seeped back out and settled under the skin? I'm not sure, all I know is that it pisses me off. And yes, to all those wondering, I am very sanitary about my injections...I use 1 pin to draw, replace, and inject into a alcohol swabbed area...injected pin touches nothing but the injected spot...a spot that is cleaned and then swabbed before injected.

I also had a shitty shot on Monday (but it was my left glute). I was shooting about 2.5ml. It still hurts today - no swelling or redness but there's a bruise the size of a quarter. I kind of expected it though - the shot was sloppy & I was in a hurry.

Ya cant be in a hurry, and seems to me that moving  the needle around as ya press the plunger is the worst (Next to hit a nerve) Im going back to 23ga for glute/ hip because its easier to press the plunger than 25s esp winter, when its 40 degrees in my gym!

I have been saying this all along, the 25g takes too much pressure to push, which causes that moving around of the needle during the shot.  A 23 is great compromise, a good all around pin.  Its not that the glutes are hard to hit, they are very easy and forgiving.

How far off was it from the previous stick area on that side? I alternate sides but try to stay in the same dime sized area on each side. It seems like after the second or third pin the pain is less and less. I don't know if it hurts less because there is irritated tissue already or what?

Yeah, that's where I put it...getting around to the back side seems a little difficult IMO. Oh, and for the record, that same day i also put half a c in both bi's. I was going to train arms and I knew I'd get a cool tight feeling if I did this a few hrs before...ha ha, lame I know.

I got my blood work done yesterday, while on cycle. Everything came back great, no elevated enzymes, no cholesterol problems, and this is on 1g of test per wk with a course of other things...I've also been on going on 16wks...only one thing. Apparently something came up that showed I had a electrolyte imbalance, basically I'm a little bit dehydrated, which is weird IMO because I drink 2g of water everyday.

The reason I went and had the blood work done was because I had what i thought was a weird rash appearing on both my legs below the knees...I thought it was just poison ivy, but after going to the pharmacy they informed this was not poison ivy and that I should go the doctor. Apparently, this rash looking thing is under the skin, and is not a rash but rather a bunch of broken capillaries. According to the doc, who I informed about everything I'm on and everything I do, because of the electrolyte imbalance, this is what caused this. So for the next few days the doc said to stay out of the heat and to drink a lot of extra water, I'm also going to get some pedialite (sp).

I thought this while thing was kind of weird, so I thought I'd share.

I found it extreemly hard to stay hydrated on the very low carb diet, I was watching my sodium too.  I was dinking about 3 gallons of fluid a day and was still thirsty!  And it was winter up here so the weather or my job was not doing it.  i think the low carbs and sodium dont help as far as your body holding on to any water.  It seemed the hardest part of the diet is drinking enough water! Be carefull AJ that pedialite is sugar.

Well check it out, there is sugars in there I could not find the ingredients list but thats the idea sugars and salts to help rehydrate.  Its similar to Gatorade, but I have not seen the info.  But its carbs for sure, Gatorade (sugar too) is supposedly as effective as Pedialyte

Pedialite is an infant or small child formula for upset stomachs but is similar to Gatorade or anything in that category. A lot of bodybuilders use it right after a show, that night and next day because of the lengthy time without water.

I drank some after my last show in the evening, before the big post show meal then sipped the rest the next day. Did not feel the sugar bloat associated with the other drinks. But then again, I was soooo delpleted of everything so probably wouldn't even notice if I did get bloated! So my advice is sip is slowly and only drink part of it. Maybe even dillute it a bit with water....

I drink it after cutting water weight before a weigh in for powerlifting. i've cut 12 pounds in one day, all water. the minute i get off the scale i drink it mixed with gatorade. works really well.

my last comp i went from 228 friday morning down to 217 by 6pm. then i drank the PL mixed with Gator, had a good meal and was 224 the next morning and hit 2 PR's.

Wow, that is very similar to what i do. he has alot of good points like not doing cardio. sometimes i'll shadow box in the sauna.

one little trick i learned was to chop up ginger root and place it in a sock. then soak in a burning hot bath with the sock for as long as you can stand. after 1 hour i lost almost 6 pounds. then i go to the gym and sit in the sauna for as long as i can stand, another 6-8 pounds. i repeat this proccess all day until i am 2 pounds under because scales vary. i eat baked chicken only and drink nothing all day. i bring a gallon of gator with the PL mixed in and an ultimate cheeseburger from jacknthebox to the weighin. i eat it walking out of the weighin area.

i've done this as a natural and enhanced...i don't like duretics so i've never even tried them.

i feel like complete shit when cutting water but it's worth being in a better weight class.

i started in the 198's and ate my way up to 220 and then cycled my way up to 242...lol

i'm still pretty lean at 242 and have a full 6 pack at 220.

i don't like the fat powerlifter scene but that's the way the sport works. i tend to stay with my own group of guys who brought me into this. most of them have state records and none of them compete over 242. good group of bros...

i feel like complete shit when cutting water but it's worth being in a better weight class.

i started in the 198's and ate my way up to 220 and then cycled my way up to 242...lol

i'm still pretty lean at 242 and have a full 6 pack at 220.

i don't like the fat powerlifter scene but that's the way the sport works. i tend to stay with my own group of guys who brought me into this. most of them have state records and none of them compete over 242. good group of bros...

Slightly different topic, but in strongman how/why do you think Pudzianowski stays so lean while the rest of them are chunky?

Genetics, HE also does do a ton of activity all day if you've read his stuff. The way certian drugs react in HIS body. Victor Conde says the future of sports doping is in individualizing sups and drugs to the persons own body. Look how AAS+insulin + HGH reacts in SOME guys. But Not all.

So my gym has turned completely gay in the music they play. Apparently there have been several complaints about the music and now the music they do play is well, again, totally gay. For example, this past wk I actually heard Boy George, I also heard Frank Sinatra...nothing wrong with Sinatra IMO, but while trying to lift, I mean come on. :P

Now I do have an iPod, so I'm definitely iPod bound 100% of the time now. I know threads are started all the time about what's the best lifting music but I want some of what you guys like. I like hard stuff but need some new bands. My favorites are Metallica, Pantera, Arch Enemy and Children of Bodom to give you an idea...anybody got some favorites along these line I might not know about?

Damn they played Boy George and Sinatra??  Man that is some crappy stuff to train to.  Me I like a wide range of music and have trained to some goofy stuff Im sure some would laugh at...rightfully so. Man I dont even know what they play at my gym....MP3 player is almost always on.

Hard stuff maybe some Drowning Pool, Marylin Mansion, Incubus, switchfoot, system of a down, Bush, Linkin Park, Rage againt the machine, Audioslave,   Theres a few you might like.

For the last 3 years I have been training with the MP3 in and dont see how I didnt start earlier.  Keeps you focused and you dont have to hear every a-holes conversation while training. Also sometimes right before I step into the zone I may put on an extreemly motivating song and push out and extra rep or 2. Plus it tells most people in an indirect way to not bother me. 

Great for cardio too when all the hens are clucking away about their trivial lives....with the headphones in I dont have to hear it.

Well check it out, there is sugars in there I could not find the ingredients list but thats the idea sugars and salts to help rehydrate.  Its similar to Gatorade, but I have not seen the info.  But its carbs for sure, Gatorade (sugar too) is supposedly as effective as Pedialyte

I believe it has Dextrose in it.

I know what you mean about the music. They play some bizarre shit at the gym. I can usually tune it out but I think it's time to get the iPod out full time again (but that's after an incident - which is a story for another time).

Doesn't work for me anymore, people still come up and just start talking while the headphones are in my ear. It's basically a constant bombardment of training/diet questions and comments along with asking me about my own contest prep. In one way it's flattering but in a much larger way it gets on my nerves big time. Now I don't mind talking to people at the gym I don't mind a little chit chat in between a set now and then, as long as it's brief and just chit chat...I don't want to discuss your training plan for the next 2yrs. I have actually had people come up and just start talking while I'm in the middle of a set, actually doing a set, earphones in and they just start yapping. I guess I could start being an asshole and yelling at people, or I could even nicely say something, but this would still label you as an asshole, and that's bad for rep which In my case is important to me. Guess it's just one of those things you got to deal with.

There is this one guy that ALWAYS starts talking to me while i'm in the middle of a set. he's always talking about these girls he met at a club and what should he do about them. i think he's got a few screws loose because it seems like he tells me the same 3 stories over and over just with different girls names. he's a big guy and does 1/4 reps for everything, he said it puts more tension on the muscle that way...lol

i told him off a few times and he still comes up and talks to me in the middle of a set...drives me nuts. sometimes when i have my headphones on i just turn my back on him and pretend i don't see him.

i don't mind chatting for a minute but this guy will go on and on for like 15 minutes. i'll be doing my sets and he will just go on and on about his girl problems.

In one way the badass persona can be cool, but in more ways it's nothing but trouble. It's this "badass" persona that's running bodybuilders out of gym all over the country.

That statement doesn't even begin to make sense, that's like saying we're going to run doctors out of hospitals, or firemen out of the fire department, or cooks out of the kitchen.

Ahhh, the music and the members. Didn't you guys say you worked out at Lifetime?? Music is horrible!!! Can't squat to the Beach Boys, sorry. ANd sorry Boy George, I won't tumble for ya'

I do wear an ipod up thru the shirt like AJ. Never gets in the way. And my way of handling the bombarding questions from the no-gym-ediquite members, is to turn my music up so I can not hear them when they walk by and say hi. That way, I don't acknowledge them so they think I can not hear them. Sometimes I do and still pretend that I am engulfed in my music. The head down, towel over the head after a hard set is usually a non invite for them to talk to me as well!! Most of them know to just stay away  >:(

Music of choice rotates from hard rock to hip hop. Love old school hip hop when working out.

Same thing at LA Fitness...

they play the same stuff all day...i think i have them all memorized and it sucks. it's the worst when you're getting pumped up for a heavy set and something gay comes on.

Try 12-15 hours and hearing the same songs over and over....the guy who is Lifetime's music coordinator says he picks music dependant on the geography. So Michigan will have differant music than Arizona. Sounds like it is crap no matter what part of the country it is.

Carefull, Aj. this is like the bar and restaurant Biz. Peeps go w/ their heart. It look like a tough nut to crack man. If your Set and it's a retirement gig is one thing, making it pay YOUR BIlls is another.
If you got good Biz smarts to transfer ya got a chance, I think you do, but it looks like a tough one to me...

I can think of 2 successful operating gyms in Thailand that are interesting prospects Ive considered, well established. One w/ a small nice gym and guest/ houses /rental and pool. Expensive Properties.

So I'm watching the news tonight and they're doing a report on amusement park accidents. According to the report, there have already been a few dozen serious accidents this summer...several of them fatal...one of them even included a young girl who lost both her legs at a 6 flags "superman" ride.

I know this is most likely pointless but even so, it got me to thinking. I wonder how many fatal accidents or even non fatal ones, just serious injury such as having limbs lost, have occurred this summer due to AAS use? How about this year, how about the past few years? Now I'm talking about individuals that use AAS and that's it...not those who also partake in other rec drugs such as coke or who are heavy drinkers or both.

So how many, 100, 20, 1? A free cycle to the person who can point me to just one. One person who meets this criteria: loss of limb, loss of motor function, near death experience, or death itself. Speculation or "maybes" do not count...this has to be conclusive

Luckily for me, this offer for a free cycle is one I know I'm not going to have to make good on. 8)

Years ago, I read an article in one of the muscle mags that a guy had to amputate his leg because the roids deteriorated the insides of his leg. He even went as far to say that there were maggots in there when they cut it open?!? Was a total fictitious article but was written like it really happened in a naritive view. I bet newbies read it and believed it though.

I think it was the all Natural Muscular Development or Muscle Mag in the early '90s.

I've read that...and no, no prize for you...fake stories don't count...sorry.

there was also the guy on TV a yr or 2 ago who was paralyzed from the waste down because of steroids...at least that's what he said, his doctors nor himself had any proof that it was caused by AAS, but because he had used them in the past they just assumed this was the culprit, they did not even look to see if it could have been caused by something else...no that's bullshit at it's highest power.

Yes and No.

i've grown up around cats, my mother had 3 when i was born. my entire life there has been a cat in the house.

when this one showed up on my porch in the freezing rain i took her in and was going to give her to my mother. my girlfriend liked her so much i kept her. she is like my shadow, everywhere i go she is within 5 feet of me. i go to take a dump and if i shut the door she meows so i let her in. she will just sit there and stare at me. weird cat but very friendly. when people come over she hops from lap to lap to get attention. she is never out of sight, always 5 feet from me.

Im told its a lot of trouble, pros recomend keeping 1 pussy in town, and one pussy in the country for holidays.
It all gets spendy too. But now and then a real clever dude can get 2 pussies to live in harmony (for a little while)
w/ him before is all gos to shit. Honestly it's easier (and safer) to get two male pitbulls to live in the same house..

I'm a bouncer at a heavy metal bar, filled with junkies, bikers, nazis, hippies and other "nice" people. I work alone and there's just a shitload of problems left and right, even the cops avoid that place.

Jetlag is a bitch, some of my friends have told me that they're going far away for just a week and i allways tell them to forget it. If you're going to sit in the plane for 10+ hours you better stay in your location long enough to actually enjoy the vacation...

Plus, after the holiday you need at least two days off from work or you'll be like a ZOMBIE and get nothing done.

Yep, thanks Arnold. I just heard that song "everybody" by Stabilo Boss. The song is ok, but not really my type of music. On a side note i just got a call from postal office/customs because about a month ago, i ordered two products from bodybuilding.com

Aromastin rx by IDS
Tribulus 1000 by NOW

I ordered these for PCT just in case, i haven't done anything for a long time, but i was thinking about running these after the "real" PCT. Anyway i didn't get my products because apparently they are classified here as "medication like" now i have to contact bb.com and try to get a refund.

I think i'll take a little nap and go to the gym for some leg blasting...

tweaked my knee on the leg press on sunday morning.  Was feeling good and strong, was using the flex leg press which i like a lot was going nice and deep, but not too deep, I like to stop when my back just starts to roll up, cause have hurt my back on the LP before.  so was getting below parallel though.  good warm up 1 plate per side up each set, may have jumped up 2 at 4 or 5 plates or so.  8 plates PS felt super light pumped out 12 easy held back some cause i was thinking about hitting 11 PS which on that machine with a full ROM is HEAVY for me (205 Lbs)  well i start the set with 9 plates PS and it was going nice and smooth then about rep 3 my knee starts to feel hot and a twinge of pain sets in.  I racked it and that was it for LP, did some light extensions with no real pain. 

Have hurt it before much worse, just some tightness today.  was bummed though cause I love to train legs hard and it kills me to back off.  But as a guy who i used to train with said, "live to train another day" One of the best things i learned with him is if you injure yourself in the gym stop doing that exercise and back off, you will heal up quicker and not do any further damage.

Yes i have! i have done all the PT as hard as possible. i'm in week 9 of PT and i'm doing stuff that they usually won't have you do until 16 weeks. i take everything to the limit.

i had a full ACL tear, everything else was in good shape, i have some pics from inside my knee during surgery. i need to scan them.

Luo - it's part of my PT to get the knee back into top condition. i like to play sports but i hate running for no reason. i prefer to swim for cardio but i enjoy a good game of basketball or soccer.

Overload, I am so jealous. I would move out to the sticks in a heatbeat, instead I am stuck in yuppie ville suburbia.

I have a "summer house" up in Wisconsin on 75 acres but the town population in 219 and I would have to take a 6 figure cut in annual pay to live out there.

Maybe thats where I will retire, or out in AZ somewhere between Phoenix and Flagstaff.

Theres a small club near me, like I describe. It'd be a good sort to try to mine. Lots of those older folks are real serious about changing their bodies. They have money to spend. Liability is a issue that comes to mind here now to.

I have always had injuries here and there throughout my training career. See a chiro 2 x week just to keep my back from locking up. If I lag and do not go to him for a few months, pain and tightness always comes back. Might have something to do with going thru a windshield when I was 19.

4 weeks ago, I tore my quad doing 600lbs on the Hack. Was feeling strong, weight was light and did not even feel it happen until my first set on the next exercise, front squats. Stopped as I knew something was wrong. Next day, pool of blood down by my teardrop. Ultrasounded it and was back doing legs yesterday for the first time, light, and no pain today!!

I have plenty of scars too, worst one is in the back of my head. I got it from defending my home from a bunch of wanna-be-ganstaz...

Trust me, they got theirs too...
BIG TIME!

Had a pretty good day today, finally i have a few days off, i got paid, i had a nice steak dinner and won some money at the Casino...

This past weekend was insane, i had to throw out junkies from the bar all night long... Tonight a friend of mine took my shift and Metallica is in town so there's going to be plenty of hassle at metal bar.

You going to the show? Metallica is my favorite band and I've still never seen them which sucks...it's just never worked out.
On another note, but on the metal thing, something I've never understood...why is it that metal is so much bigger on your side of the world then it is here in the states? Besides bands like Metallica, Europe puts out most of the top metal bands and it seems to be much more mainstream there. Bands like Bodom seem to get much more out of the whole deal over there then here...at least that's what it looks like to me...it's just something I've never understood.

Post by: Luolamies on July 15, 2007, 11:51:01 AM
No i'm not going to the show... Wish i was... Heavy Metal is a really BIG deal here in Scandinavia and esp. in Finland. Absolutely everyone listen to it (at least the ones that aren't suffering from hypo-gonadism). We have plenty of Heavy Metal festivals here and they are the biggest in the world. One of the festival that is arranged here every year is only about a mile a way from the Presidents "palace" and it's 80 000 people shouting and screaming while that bitch (president) is trying to drink her morning coffee... Or what ever that lesbian drinks.

If anyone likes metal here's some good bands, from here...

Stratovarius, Nightwish, Sonata Arctica etc.

Also as for why it's a BIG deal here, i'd say it's largely because our tough history, heritage and the way we got through it all and are doing pretty good these days.

AGREED. I grew up in Nor Cal where Metallica really took off after they moved up from LA. They played a bunch of small venues when they were still unknown and the radio was scared to play them. Then I saw them when they started to play stadiums all the way until their recent stuff.
I even saw them at Monsters of Rock at Candlestick in SF early 90's and they were the first band out before Kingdom Come and Dokken!! See what Radio can do to a band??? Man, that was ages ago...

Sucky story...last time they were here was on the St. Anger tour and like every big concert all the radio stations were giving away free tickets. Well on one occasion one station gave away 4 front row tickets with backstage passes and limo ride to and from the show...all you had to do was call in and name the 3 Ozzy songs they were about to play. And wouldn't you know it, I got through, but I was so excited that I couldn't name the last song...had a brain fart. After a couple of minutes I shouted the name out but the DJ said, "I don't know, that took a while...sorry next caller." Needless to say, I was pissed.

Damn, i think i might have a heart attack if i tried that!

i usually do about 16 sets in 1 hour.

i had a damn good back workout on friday, starting to do deadlifts with 135 for sets of 30. a far cry from what i've done in the past but it feels good to deadlift.

i went to the Paul Barbee APF meet on saturday and it was great. one of my training partners squated 722 and tiny meeker attempted a 1014 bench in a double ply but bombed the lift. i saw a 65 year old man almost deadlift 490, it was incredible. another guy benched over 600 pounds RAW, a good meet to get my blood flowing again, i'm ready for my turn now.

Well i decided to relax BIG TIME so i paid a hefty amount for a nice cruise for the entire family. Were leaving on weekend and this ship is so awesome you can't believe it...

Thanks, i just came back. It was only for two nights and 2,5 days. It was from Helsinki-Stockholm-Helsinki. The ship was really luxorious and our cabin was on dec 10, there was 13 on that ship. I and my kid-brother met some American women, who were really cool. They were from Ohio and we partied with them until morning. They had Finnish grand parents, so they were in Scandinavia to visit family and stuff. Man, i blew a SHITLOAD of cash in just two days. This ship was great, i mean everything was really nice from shops to the casino and the SPA. I bought so much souveniers that we got a gift certificate for a NEW cruise for free...

Ok, so get this:

I just came back from the gym and i felt a little "weak" and the first thing that came into my mind was "it's because i've been sweating so much." Obviously i get plenty of natrium, magnesium, vitamins- b, c, etc. but i think i'm not getting enough Potassium. So i went into the pharmacy and asked for a bottle of zink and potassium. The staff member "dumb ass blonde" asked me if i have a scrip? I said NO! Why would i need a prescription for something OTC? She said that potassium is so dangerous that she would not feel ok to sell it to me, without doctors orders. I told her: "look i do know quite a bit about these things". After a short conversation (in which i was very polite) she refused to sell me POTASSIUM!

I don't like to bitch, but this same shit happens every time i'm in contant with any "healtcare" system. Every time i go to a pharmacy and buy my C, B or what ever i get rude service and childish comments. AND THE one thing about why that pisses me off plenty is because i carry so much cash to these places. 

Maybe i should make an official complaint and say the reason i'm getting rude service is because:

#1 My race (i'm white)
#2 My sexual orientation (i'm straight)
#3 My religion (i'm christian, like 90% of us fins)

HAH HAH HAA...

It was like 08.00 am and it was still little dark, anyway when i was crossing a busy road a BIG VAN hitted me HARD! I slided a long way on the icy road and ABSOLUTELY nothing happened to me! I stood up and the driver was running towards me asking "are you ok?" I said i guess so, oh shit i'm late, bye. When i got to the school one of my teachers asked me, "why are you late again?" I said: "i got hitted by a van" and the teachers was: "fine don't tell me, your allways BS everyone."

I got hit on a bike by a old Ford Bronco, open Jeep style. I felt the sheet metal give when he hit me. I made a good dent. I bounced like a basketball, DIRECTLY IN FRONT OF THE BRONCO! (He turned left, didnt see me).
When he stopped, I was inches from some 15" x 31"  Mudders! :o.

Last night me and my friend first drank a SHITLOAD booze and went to the biggest night club in Scandinavia, it's not even that big lol.

Anyway i was really drunk and got in a weird mood, i bothered lot people for my own amusement. There was this group of stupid spoiled blonds and i saw my friend wen't to talk to them, they were just like: "no no fuck off..." I sneaked up to them and started talking that this other group of girls said that they want to eat their pussies. Well, they bought it and they got into a fight ha ha...

I been a lot of places. Athens is Prolly one of the coolest. And money went a long way.
It's so strange. You walk around and come along these ancient ruins. The city is like walking around in a dream.
Get there while you can.

There's a car ferry that runs across the ocean from Italy to there also.
The Italian countryside is cool, its a little bit tough country to navigate. Be cool if you had friends there though...

I have no urge to go to europe and be with all the American hating snobs.  If I go on vacation I want people kissing my ass.

Sounds like a major pain in the butt with the language barriers and funky food and money and the attitudes of most of europe.  I was watching someting on sattilite about Italy and in one of the touristy cities they were saying how if you are walking down the street these fu*ks will not move over at all and make way, if you dont move they will walk right into you.  Ill tell you what, that place would piss me off and there would probally be some kind of problem with the f*cking waap (easy Im half dago) who walks into me.

Trab, iīve been to all over: Greece, Spain, turkey, Cyprys etc. Canīt even remember all the places iīve been to.

I've been all over England and France.

England was a wonderful place, the people were polite, no wannabe gangster thugs with fake limps and pants around their knees. not a single guy acted "hard" or bumped into you out of "Mr badass syndrome". most girls were really cute and nice to me. when we would go into pubs most guys would buy you a drink just because you were from America. i actually only had one guy be rude to me the whole 2 weeks i was there. when i told them i was from Texas they asked where my cowboy hat was and if i rode a horse all the time...lol...overall i enjoyed London and Oxford the most. i highly suggest England.

France was a very odd place. the country side was amazing, everything was clean and taken care of unlike America. Paris was a dirt ass place but the rest of France was very clean. the problem is they HATE Americans. the minute i opened my mouth i got treated like trash. we ate at the resteraunt halfway up the Eiffel tower and got the worst service I've seen in my life and this was a very expensive place. all of our water and wine glasses would be dry for 10 minutes before they refilled them, they wouldn't even look at our table for 30 minutes, food was served cold. the french people next to us got refilled before they reached halfway empty. i even had a guy accuse me of stealing his watch in the bathroom! he couldn't even tell me the brand on the watch but told the manager it was his and he left it on the counter and i stole it! everywhere we went we were treated like dirt. you could hear waiters speaking English but when they came to our table they acted like they had no idea what we were saying. we went to Disney land and stayed in the 5 star resort and had to wait 2 hours for our room which we reserved 3 months in advance, we watched everyone else get their rooms immediately. all in all i would never step foot in that country again, i could tell you about 100 other things that happen but i don't have the time.

Ditto on the France Experience Overload. Don't even get off the train is my advice.
If you could speak fluent French, prolly different. I was told by one of them the Parisians discriminate against the other Frenchmen. "Dont take it personal, We hate each other too".

Still, I can find places where my money goes a lot farther, and they like me.
Portugal was one of the cheapest places I ever stayed.

Next summer when she takes me to her hometown she told me to be prepared. she has alot of family there and we will mainly be staying in her village near the beach. The things she tells me about the government over there is ridiculous, such a horrible group of men running that country.

I'll PM you her entire story of how she made it to America one day. it's a very long and sad story, her father had to abandon them so they wouldn't throw him in a concentration camp or execute him because they "thought" he had hidden money, which he did. so they threw her mother in a camp after he left and the oldest brother(only 5 years old) had to take care of 3 children, one was my girl who was only 6 months old. he took care of them alone for 8 months. her father is one amazing man and i admire his passion for the survival of his family, he finally made his way to hong kong and then America. they thought he was dead because they didn't hear from him for almost 14 years. then one day he sponsors them to America. her entire family was stripped of everything they owned and left to rot. they had to live off the land just to survive.

Now her family is successful. All three brothers are Dentists and the 3 daughters are CPA's...truly an amazing story of how immigrants "should" take advantage of what they have here. instead of the illegals coming over here and shooting out babies and living on our tax money the rest of their lives, these Viet's made a difference. they worked so hard to learn our language, working for minimum wage to get through college.

My wife is real fortunate, her family lucked into a tourist paradise island. But we know so many stories that will turn your stomach. Abandoned children eating out of garbage piles with the street dogs... It gets worse. Too far for here.
Your gona see stuff make your eyes water. Some is so shocking its hard to take. Make you freeze in your tracks.

I hear the Viet Govt controls tightly where foreigners can go and see. The legal situation is also not sane.

Yeah, i can't imagine some of the things she has told me. it's morbid to me, my worst nightmares couldn't match some of the things she has seen and been through. watching family members executed in front of the entire family as a warning...alot of things i don't care to mention. kids killing diseased dogs for food! she slept in a bed with her entire family and they all had knives under their pillows so men could not rape them.

this is why i treat her with such respect, her eyes and mind have been through more than i could even fathom. she wakes up from nightmares and makes me check the house for "things"...strange to me but she's seen too much. sometimes i wake up to her squeezing me as hard as she can and shaking, she's dreaming of the past. it's hard for me to bare but i feel like i'm here for her, it was meant to be.

Yes in certian parts of Vietnam we are not welcome and they let you know that very quickly.

Iīm about 20 mins. from Spain, on this trip we ainīt gonna go, but i have been there and itīs nice...

I and my dad have been biking all day up and down the mountains and we ended up in the Cabanas and let me tell you the babes i saw... Man!

This about 35 years old portuguese milf was flirting with me and i didnīt have the cojones to go talk to her because my dad was there, he wouldnt have minded at all, but i have a rule not to hit on Milfs in front of the parents, i have done that before and the comments never end...

Anyway i have another night of clubbing ahead, will start with few beers and have a nice dinner by the river with a bottle of local red wine and after that to the bar and clubs...

Btw. it looks like i have another trip coming soon because my brother wants to go somewhere, iīm one lucky bastard. On a side note i have been burned pretty badly and couldnt find any clothes that would have fitted me in the shops, i have nothing nice to wear, because we left so quickly...

I said out loud, "Fuck - I came all the way to Detroit..."

Body Machine, you really donīt need a fortune to travel and even if you travel alone itīs very easy to make friends. Just get all the $ you can and leave, after all you only live once and you can never tell when you "check out."

I just came from the pool and i couldnīt stop staring at this swedish chick, she had thongs and was topless. Her boyfriend noticed that i was staring and for some reason left, maybe they have an "open relationship" were itīs ok to him that other guys do her?

Oh yeah, i forgot to tell you guys this embarrassing incident that happened this morning: so last night i ate something bad and got the shits, after i came to the hotel drunk with my dad i went to sleep. In the middle of the night i woke up suddenly and felt a weird pain in my gut, so in about 1.2 seconds i had to make it to the WC. Well long story short i left a "small suprise" in the bed. So when the cleaners came i had to explain to two women who dont speak any english: "iīm real sorry about this diarrhea in the bed..."

  Did you Tip them poor cleaning ladies? ;D :-X

What you say is exactly how I felt at your age...
Although I traveled alone, I was never "alone". A plane Tic to Europe and train pass is cheap for a single guy.

Nothing beats the odd-ball characters that Ive met traveling.... ALso makes you look at everything differently..

now as i get older, i work more, workout less, and worry more about dumb shit like cholesterol and blood pressure!! LOL

Good topic and question. I will say this, my motivation, regardless of the situation, be it training, or life in general, stems from wanting to succeed and be the best at what I do...setting goals and reaching them is motivation enough for me. I can honestly say that I've never really been someone who's been motivated by outside things, i.e. other people and what they think about me or what I'm doing. That's not to sound cocky or like I'm some sort of bad ass, not at all, I do strive to earn the respect of people I come in contact with, but its not these peoples approval that motivates me in anyway.

Other then that, my religious faith does play a part in what drives me in life...even so, I'm not going to go into that in detail or anything...the last thing I want to do here is start some pointless debate, lol! But, that factor is part of who I am and regardless of what others think in that way be it the same as me or not, that factor does in deed affect my life.


Title: Re: *****The New Locker Room*****
Post by: Overload on August 23, 2007, 05:08:11 AM
I'm sort of like Arnold, i just like to succeed in everything i do. i like to set the bar high and see if i can reach it. life is about overcoming the negatives in this world and being a positive force. I'm a very positive person and when i set my mind to something i always overcome that obstacle. there are so many worthless people in this world that i want to make a difference, i want to be that person who did everything he wanted to because he believed he could do it. i never make excuses and i never fail, that's just the way i view life in general.

powerlifting and bodybuilding has always been a hobby for me that i really enjoy. if i have a bad day i know once i hit the gym it's all over. if something bad happens i hit the gym and i come out positive and feeling good about life. i don't know the mechanism of action but working out hard and heavy makes me feel fantastic. i always leave the gym feeling refreshed and positive. I'm a young guy so I'm not sure how much things will change in future once i start my business and family. right now my career and girl are very important to me, but powerlifting will never be placed on the back burner, it will always be at the top. having a job and girlfriend that support my eating and lifting habits really helps. i have no negative forces trying to stop my advancement in life, and if they show up i will quickly defeat them.

I'm not a religious person but i believe in positive and negative energy that allows us to be successful or not. if you let the negatives overpower you it will send you down. if you MAKE the positives overpower the negatives you will go up. that's the way i view things at least.

i enjoy watching DVD's like pumping iron and Ronnie's unbelievable but it's all in my heart that drives me. i will not fail at anything and i will press myself forward at every chance i get in the business and personal world.

           THis  is what stops people from doing/ achieving what they REALLY WANT in LIFE -

                               TELLING THEMSELF THEY CANT.    That's all!

Need be realistic, but if you want something, and make a good step by step plan - You can pull off what seems to most the unachievable.    I ain't just talking lifting here.

As far as lifting motovation, I  like video & Training Photos of favorite BBers or athletes.
Seeing someone do whats far beyond normal.

good answers fellas, keep them coming.....

i find myself torn over the past year, my workouts have been pretty inconsistent. i moved, new business, getting married, shoulder surgery....been down more than up.

im really not sure whats gonna motivate me to get back to a strict regimen like i used to. working 10-12 hour days, most of the time i just want to go home and spend some time with the old lady if i dont have paperwork to do. she (my fiance) goes EARLY (4:30am) everyday, but im not getting up that early....especially when im not climbing into bed until 1am.

the shoulder is about at 85-90%, of course my strength is WAY down comparitively to when i was healthy and juicing back a few years ago...but strength comes in time. ive been "off" for almost 2 years...so when i do get my shit together with training and finally come back to the darkside im sure i will explode LOL

the worst part about it?? i work in gyms and fitness facilities ALL day long ha ha....how ironic.

i just dont push myself to succeed in the gym because im pushing to succedd in business. i know there will be a time where the biz will take care of itself, then i can take care of my desires in the gym. its just hard when you are doing great in the gym, then a set back like surgery takes it all away......then i remember what i USED to do, what i USED to look like and it really pisses my off!!! maybe that should be enough. i never want to be the "USED TO" guy :)


thought i would share

keep the stories coming....

I like this topic...needless to say I know some of the things i might say could easily come off as pretty cheesy sounding, but oh well, lol!
I like what you've said here...you're right, there are a lot of worthless people out there...not worthless in the sense of their existence, everyone has worth IMO, but in the way in which they live makes their lives worthless is how I'd view it...but good point.
I'll also add this, like you when I set my sights on something, I am hell bent on reaching it, but unlike you sometimes I do fall flat on my face...(this is where it might sound corny.) But every time I fall flat on my face, that's where I distinguish myself from the rest of the pack...that's where I either lie down and die or get back up and keep moving forward. I may fall again, I may not, but it's that very struggle that motivates me.

I'm not a religious person but i believe in positive and negative energy that allows us to be successful or not. if you let the negatives overpower you it will send you down. if you MAKE the positives overpower the negatives you will go up. that's the way i view things at least.
Obviously I could easily be deemed a "religious" person by statements I've already made...but I absolutely hate that label because it's an inaccurate false statement...at least in the manner in which we all typically throw around the word "religious." I agree with you though, negatives can really be a burden if you let them be...even so negative aspects in life do arise for everyone, but it's how we deal with them in the most positive way we can that defines our drive and character.

Now this is simply out of curiosity, and it's not to start some kind of pointless fight. But I'm always curiouse to try and understand when people say things like you just said, "I'm not a religious person but i believe in positive and negative energy that allows us to be successful or not." If you're not religious, I would assume you don't take too much stock in the existence of a higher power...OK fine. But in your opinion, where then does all this energy come from? Again, I'm just asking and not trying to step on any toes here...I know how asking something like this can get some people really bent out of shape.



i enjoy watching DVD's like pumping iron and Ronnie's unbelievable but it's all in my heart that drives me. i will not fail at anything and i will press myself forward at every chance i get in the business and personal world.

Yeah, those DVD's are cool, but they don't do too much for me either. I like your attitude though, that's what you have to have to succeed at anyting. Major Props!

I like this topic...needless to say I know some of the things i might say could easily come off as pretty cheesy sounding, but oh well, lol!
I like what you've said here...you're right, there are a lot of worthless people out there...not worthless in the sense of their existence, everyone has worth IMO, but in the way in which they live makes their lives worthless is how I'd view it...but good point.
I'll also add this, like you when I set my sights on something, I am hell bent on reaching it, but unlike you sometimes I do fall flat on my face...(this is where it might sound corny.) But every time I fall flat on my face, that's where I distinguish myself from the rest of the pack...that's where I either lie down and die or get back up and keep moving forward. I may fall again, I may not, but it's that very struggle that motivates me.

Now this is simply out of curiosity, and it's not to start some kind of pointless fight. But I'm always curiouse to try and understand when people say things like you just said, "I'm not a religious person but i believe in positive and negative energy that allows us to be successful or not."

Oh i have failed before, i just set my mind not to fail on anything. if i do fail i come back stronger. i have noticed that when i put 110% into something i always prevail. maybe i'm just lucky or maybe i just try harder than the next guy? not sure really but i've been successful in everything i do.

I'm "considered" Agnostic, please don't confuse this with Atheist, as i do not believe in God nor the Devil. i do not claim to be Agnostic, i just fall into this catagory more than any other.

Agnostic "a person who holds that the existence of the ultimate cause, as God, and the essential nature of things are unknown and unknowable, or that human knowledge is limited to experience."

i simply believe that NONE of us truly know if there is a God or not, as it has never been proven with our intelligence level. i believe that a persons belief in God is simply their opinion and/or how they were raised. i was raised a Methodist, but after years of study i found Christianity to be false, this is only my opinion and not a shot at you or anyone else. you asked so i gave my opinion, i have no problem with Christians or anyone else. i think religion is a personal choice, not something that is forced upon us.

that energy comes from within US, and it can be used in many ways. it could come from God but how could we know? there is a force that drives me, maybe that is God, maybe it is willpower and determination?

Please understand i'm stating my opinion only because you asked. i went to church for 18 years, my girlfriend is Buddhist, so i have many opinions on religion.

Religion is like politics, everyone has their own opinion and everyone thinks they are right. there are over 10,000 religions on this planet and ALL of them think they are right. that is a very strange thing to me and made me think deeply.

i studied the Bible for many years with my mother as a child, so i do know alot about the subject.

I respect you alot Arnold, you are a good man, please do not take my post the wrong way as it is only my opinion.

I agree when you put your all into something, it is hard to fail, but again it sometimes still happens. That's where what I like to call "Rocky Syndrome" comes into play...getting knocked flat on your ass and you keep coming back harder and harder until successes in that matter has no choice but to give into you. For better or worse, that's just how I see it.

First off, no worries...I wouldn't have pressed the issue at all if I thought anything you might say would offend me...it is a topic I like talking about and I don't get offended easily.

Anyway, just to touch on what you said a little bit, kind of just food for thought sort of stuff. Like you said, there are around ten thousand differant religions in the world, obviously all of these can't be right. Even so, I've always found in life if there are fake or counterfit things, then there has to be a "real." I mean think about it, no one ever counterfits something that isn't real in the first place.

So if there is a "real" answer or solution to the question of God's existence, how do you know which one is real when there are so many claims to this purposed reality? It's easiest to try and approach it like a mathematical situation, or rather this is the desired approach since this is how things make the most sense to our minds. You know, like 2+2 = 4, this is absolute and easy to express and see, it is also imposable to dispute. But with God's existence things cannot be approached this way, we can't approach it like we would every day scenarios IMO. Is it complicated? No, I don't think so, but the approach is still differant IMO. You sort of, for lack of a better word, have to lay aside your own humanistic way of thinking. After all, why would God the creator of man be able to be revealed by humanistic terms? Obviously he can't be because he himself would not be human. It would be like if a fully functioning robot created by a man tried to explain and understand the existence of his creator, a human being, in ways that relate to his own existence as a robot. Bad example? Maybe, kind of corny I know, but it fits IMO.

On the same topic of religion but a differant direction, did anyone else see the special on CNN in the past few nights called "God's Warriors?" the first part dealt with radical Islam and the 2nd half radical Christianity. pretty interesting little piece and very well done...there did not seem to be any hidden agenda in any direction. Anyway, for those that like this sort of thing, I'm sure it will run again, so check it out if it peaks your intrest.

subject change: motivation

through the trials and tribulations of life pass, what continues to motivate you?.....

as i was younger, pussy was always a great motivator, as was strength....makes you feel good knowing youre strong

now as i get older, i work more, workout less, and worry more about dumb shit like cholesterol and blood pressure!! LOL

priorities change, but what continues to motivate you? do you watch "pumping iron"?, pick up the latest magazine?, continue to try to run with a younger crowd?, training partners?


discuss

Cool topic  8)  What motivates me to continue in training?  I think the main thing is the way being in shape and trained seperates me from the masses.  Everyone going thru life just trying to fit in and be like everyone else, I hate that.  Being big and in shape is one way I express myself.

I have found thru life that my self image is tied into how I look and present myself and when that is bad I find my self esteem and happieness suffers.  People wanna feel good about themselves, I know I do.  There have been times in my life when I felt bad about myself for many reasons and I really dont ever wanna go back there again.  Training keeps me on track.  My life and priorites get all fu*ked up after a while when I have no direction.  Im lost without it and you never wanna lose yourself.

Agreed. The day I find myself trying to "fit in with the masses" this is the day I give you permission to come here and kick me as hard as you can right in the sack!

You make some good points, but one question. Have you ever found yourself in a place where training and the whole process goes beyond perhaps what it should and in doing so it causes some of your priorities to get way out of line? I think I've been guilty of this and still am to a degree if I don't watch it. But as a whole I agree with what you just said.

Well for sure yes.  The main ones having to do with relationships.  See the thing is and I will use myself as an example  I was married before and this has also come up in more recent relationships but when I met my ex I was into BB pretty hardcore (competing and living the lifestyle)  Well while in these relationships we would spend lots of time together and do all the normal things people do together, go out a lot, eat out often, go to bars and clubs, stay up late partying, do things with friends, go to parties with drinking usually involved....etc.  Well it is all fun and good BUT there is no way I can be in the shape that I previously mentioned which makes me feel good about myself, so its kind of a double edged sword.  I will be having a good time but getting fat and out of shape makes me start to feel bad about myself again.  I hate the idea of partying or whatever on the weekends and then busting my ass in the gym all week just to try and stay even, I like to make progress forward.  I will also feel bad if I start to miss workouts, which happens when other priorities come into play.

I don't know if I am explaining it right but it goes like this, live normal life, fall out of shape, get depressed, relationship fails, more depressed, true self is lost.  A lot of the time you will see what is happening and try to correct things at the fall out of shape stage and then your mate cant understand why you don't wanna keep doing what you have been doing and it causes stress.  Is the BB lifestyle normal? NO....but thats why we do it in the first place, its who we are.

Does it have to be this way?  Probally not.  They say life is about balance and I would agree.  I find myself now being more open to invitations to do things when in the past I would pass because it would throw off my feedings or training schedule.  Shit I will just pack food and water and not give a damn if people think I'm weird for it, sometimes it works the other way.  Luv recently dated this figure chick and we were out late. We were chatting in my truck(I just got a cool new one ;D) in her drive way, Luv really wanted to be upstairs in her place...not chatting  ;D But...anywho I was getting hungry so I just reached in the back and grabbed my food and started to eat while we chatted.  Later she told me she thought that was cool how I did that and that I did not care what she thought about it and went about sticking to my priorities, hey I offered her some  :D

So maybe the answer is finding people who also enjoy and share the same passions you do?  Hard to find yes, but they are out there.  Cause what makes you happy is who you are, hard to be someone you are not.

OHHH how true that is LUV. Trying to hang with old friends or date women that do not live the lifestyle just does not work. Dated a girl that "worked out" but had no idea what competition prep is like. Needless to say, kicked her to the curb after so many statements of, "Why do you drink so much water?" "Why can't we work out together?" "Why do we have to plan a movie around your meals?" "And why do you eat so much and why can't we go to a resteraunt?" No matter how hot she was, GONE!! Talk about mental draining..

But the older I get, the more I realize balance is important and I try not to be so jaded to the regular masses. I cracked up at all of your comments about how our lifestyle takes priority over all aspects of our lives. I still have trouble prioritizing things and find myself after 15 years still scheduling stuff around workouts, eating, etc...you just become a machine and if you break you pattern, you can get depressed! Now, don't get me wrong, I love this lifestyle and would not want to be like my friends I grew up with who call or write me for advice on  how to get in shape because they all partied for the last 15 years and their doctors told them they need to do something about their health! I still love my beer and weed but again, it gets worked around training and eating. I get bummed when I spend a whole Sunday on the couch recovering from the night before at the bars.

When I look back at my past, contest prep time is when I actually feel the best because I am in such a routine with no booze or shitty food or can not take a day off because your competitor is not. Nowadays even though I am still competiting, working out just makes me feel so much better as I used to focus on just getting big. Big muscles is the tangable factor where health really should come first.

To sum up what I am saying, as far as motivation, it is getting a bit harder the older I get and the more I work but I keep that picture of my friends being fat, depressed and unhealthy so that motivates me to get up and start my day at the gym.
.....SO I press on ((no pun intended!  ;D))

Post by: Arnold jr on August 25, 2007, 05:12:50 PM
L2H and busyB, both of you are right on, relationship things can get nuts when combined with trying to live even a semi BB lifestyle. I know we've touched on this a time or two before on this board but it is something that has always been a problem for myself. It seems the more I've get involved and enthralled with my own BB pursuits the more difficult it gets trying to make meaningful relationships work. Like Luv said, finding someone who is in to the whole thing herself is a good idea but I've found that sometimes this can actually cause a clash as well. After all, the whole BB thing is so very selfish when you get full blown with it, and if both people are full blown into it then you have two very selfish personalities trying to exist together.

Even so, finding someone in this category is probably the still the safest bet IMO. It's just they are few and far between and even if you do happen to find one, finding one that meets the other criteria you have set, well, that's a whole other ball game.

Back to what I was saying earlier L2H about letting other aspects of your life slack due to BB, well, I wanted to touch on that somemore. I am ashamed to say I have been very guilty of this, too much so IMO in the past and it is still something I really have to be careful with. I remember reading an article in some random BB mag a couple of years ago about guys who live the BB lifestyle and let it control their lives to the point where it actually damages other aspects of their lives, i.e. financial situations, relationships etc. Lord knows I've been guilty of these things, I have spent money before on furthering my own BB thing when that same money should have been used to pay for more important things in my life...not going to go into detail with that, but in the past I've been very stupid with that lol! Even so, I'm still relatively young and I haven't done anyting that is going to hinder me for the rest of my life...and even though I've made many stupid decisions in regards to the way I've let BB control me, I still wouldn't trade BB for anything in this world. It is without a doubt, even with the sometimes ups and downs, the one thing in my life that truly makes me happy and keeps me content and motivated on a daily basis.

You and I are a lot alike AJ...

Not sure how old you are but I am in my mid 30's and have lived this lifestyle for about 15 years. All I wanted when I was in my early 20's was to be the next Skip La Cour, remember when the natty scene was big and Muscular D even switched formats??

But like I said in my earlier post, my friends who I have known 20+ years are all out of shape, some on anti-depressants and plain unhealthy. I took a long time off competiting, qualified for National level as a natty twice and then came back in '06 and qualified again. This is my last go round to compete nationally and now that I am no longer natty, it is a goal which is part of my motivation. I am also lucky to have a girl that lives this lifestyle too...we travel to shows and that is fun for us!

BUT as I have gotten older, life has changed and competiting is not my #1 priority, but it was for a long time and that is what it takes to succeed unfortunatly! But then I realized, I do not want to live in my car and have 20+" arms...Now, I am blessed that I do work in this industry and can make a living doing what I love. But health must come first. Who cares how big you are when you die, just means your loved ones will have to pay for a bigger casket!  :'(

AJ I still havent bought a new dineing room table and chairs that I have been saying I would for the last 3 years, just blew a grand on more goodies.  Fu*k the table.

I'm 28, so you've been at this a good bit longer then I have.

Yeah, I know who he is, but that's pre-Arnold jr. era...that was before my intrest in all this came about. Even so, I'd say it's safe to say the natural scene is still fairly alive and well IMO. Of course that's one of my pet peeve issues but I won't get on my soap box in this discussion lol!

But like I said in my earlier post, my friends who I have known 20+ years are all out of shape, some on anti-depressants and plain unhealthy.

I heard that. Even though I'm a little younger then you I'm a little tired of not having all the things I want. No, I don't live in my car and I do live comfortably, but there are things I’d like to have and do that I don't simply because of the time, money and energy I put into BB. But I’m still not to the point to where I am ready to lay all that aside simply for the collection of more "things" not when BB itself is what makes me happy. To a degree though I do need to for my own well being start to plan and do things a little differently then I have in the past...hey, you got to plan for the future, IMO.

I also agree with what you said about health. This is something I don't think about as much as I should...which is weird IMO since the whole BB thing really is supposed to be about health. But as you and I both know, unfortunately, hardcore BB has nothing to do with health and it's so easy to lose sight of what is truly healthy when you get involved in all this stuff...you become so narrowly focused that if you're not careful you could really do some damage to yourself. I've had a few little incidents over the past year that have made me think about this a lot more...nothing that I would call major but just eye openers.

Good stuff guys  :) 

Man thats the truth!  Im a little older than you guys and friends my age, 40's lots are starting to have those medical problems from lack of diet and excersise.  Most of them look 10 years older than they are.  I aint going out like that.  That also keeps me motivated.
Agreed. Even though as I touched on a little above, BB can be a "not so healthy" pursuit if you let it be, but even then, you're still living far better health wise then the majority of the rest of the people you know IMO. It would be hard to claim that hardcore dieting and things like dropping water and all that is all that healthy. Further, continually going up in weight and dropping weight repeatedly year in and year out, sure this is not the healthiest way to live. Several people have made points about this to me, but I always argue back, although it may very well not be the absolute best way to live, there should be no question that it is far more healthy then the way most people live...after all, what's worse, the BB lifestyle or the lifestyle that is made up of daily trips to Burger King and repetitive drinking, all the while building a physique entrenched in lard and atrophied muscles?

AJ I still havent bought a new dineing room table and chairs that I have been saying I would for the last 3 years, just blew a grand on more goodies.  Fu*k the table.
Yep, the "goodies" can do a number on your pocket book, but you can't leave out the insane food bill...that is another big pocket drainer. For myself, over the last year or so, I've gotten to where even though I'm not eating that much more then I was in previous years, my food bill is more simply because I'm far more particular about the food, i.e. quality. I spend right now around $100-150 a wk on groceries, multiply that by 52wks, throw in supplement and gear bills and the occasional dinning out tab and you got a pretty big chunk of change.

Here's a little story for you...this will show how stupid I can be sometimes. Back in January of this year, I almost sold one of my cars to a guy at the gym for a large bulk buy of "goodies." We worked out a deal but in the end after I thought about it I just couldn't do it...I thought to myself, if I do this then I am becoming "that guy" that I do not want to be. You know the guy, the one so stupidly blinded by BB that he makes retarded decisions. Luckily I came to my senses, lol!

Alright another thing and it might sound big headed but I will admit I LOVE knowing how very, very envious some people I know are about how good I look and they look like such lazy peices of shit  ;D
I don't think it sounds "big headed" not at all, there is probably a lot of truth in that statement. Of course some people are so far gone into their way of 'lazy" life that they don't even care. They're so far gone that they think your the stupid one.

LUV, that is true about friends or people in general looking 10 years older than they are! I may be getting up there, but no one guesses I am mid 30's. I usually get about 5-6 yrs younger! YAHOO!

Plus, not big headed at all that we look better than most of the population. How many fat people do you run into that look at you with a dirty look and act like it is our fault they stuffed twinkes in their mouths for years. The way we look is the reward for the hard work we put in. Not only in the gym but eating and rest as well.

I just left the gym and at Lifetime they have stairs going up to the weight room and I got so many weird looks when I was walking down, wabbling and holding onto the rail because I just did legs. They think I am a freak for working out so hard but most members at my gym need the rail becuase they are so fat and have not changed their bodies in the two years I have been there. That is motivation in itself...

AJ- I did not think too much about my health untl I hit about 31-32, then I realized there are other reasons we work so hard. I had a guy the other day say to me after a grueling chest workout, "man you look like you are going to have a heart attack"..my response, "sorry, some of us actually work out hard so keep doing your 25lbs calf raises and just worry about you!"

SHOWS: '08 Los Angeles and '08 USA- Heavy weight, I hope....

LUV, that is true about friends or people in general looking 10 years older than they are! I may be getting up there, but no one guesses I am mid 30's. I usually get about 5-6 yrs younger! YAHOO!

Plus, not big headed at all that we look better than most of the population. How many fat people do you run into that look at you with a dirty look and act like it is our fault they stuffed twinkes in their mouths for years. The way we look is the reward for the hard work we put in. Not only in the gym but eating and rest as well.

I just left the gym and at Lifetime they have stairs going up to the weight room and I got so many weird looks when I was walking down, wabbling and holding onto the rail because I just did legs. They think I am a freak for working out so hard but most members at my gym need the rail becuase they are so fat and have not changed their bodies in the two years I have been there. That is motivation in itself...

AJ- I did not think too much about my health untl I hit about 31-32, then I realized there are other reasons we work so hard. I had a guy the other day say to me after a grueling chest workout, "man you look like you are going to have a heart attack"..my response, "sorry, some of us actually work out hard so keep doing your 25lbs calf raises and just worry about you!"

SHOWS: '08 Los Angeles and '08 USA- Heavy weight, I hope....

Man I just did legs today too....love that sh*t  A few times I took the elevator down, but thats a good thing  ;D  Yeah sometimes dickwads say some stupid shit to me too, but for the most part it is supportive. 

You learn who your true friends are when you get in shape for a show.  The cool people all come up to me and give me props and support and the stagnent a-holes who come to the gym all the time and never get any better dont say shit and sometimes will give you dirty looks.  It takes a secure person to compliment someone else and give them credit. 

Man good luck getting ready for those shows!!  Im 9 weeks out right now, hope to qualify for national comp at this show.  I will be doing Lt heavy and masters 40-49     

Not sure how I missed this girl but Sonia Adcock, hot damn!



You got that right!!  Nice!

Heres a few more

Ripitupbaby and Mel D are the first 2 and I know AJ is a big fan also!! :)  How could you not be them girls are HOT!

AJ & LUV - You guys need to find women that are either supportive of your BBing, or a athlete/ competitor of some kind.

If your single and no kids, and BBing is pretty all-consuming - SO WHAT?
Most PPL get wrapped up in many NEGATIVE things. BBing is NOT.
A single guy might put a lot of time & Money into Cycles, boats, Gambling, Bars... or lot of other pursuits..
Nobody much says critical things. A BBer kind of wears their pursuit is the thing, and the public is pretty clueless about BBing.

Yes, if you start to raise a family things need to change a bit. But allowing any woman to totally control a relationship and stop you from what you've done for years is a major mistake...
Yes, you can bet I don't get to consider a months long HGH run... There's a lot of other places that cash has to go. But everyone in a family needs respect and time for themself.

AS far as eating, Its abnormal, time consuming, and makes for more work and stress, even at a casual level.  My wife said right away - "You dont eat like a normal person. You eat a lot and much more often. Its a lot of work...".  She was/ is totally accepting of that. I need be carefull saying theres something I'd like to eat, she might drop what shes doing and start to cook it at 10pm.
 
 Its also healthier and better for the body to eat more meals IMO.
In The USA - "NORMAL" is being a Fat waddling Pig.  No Thanks!

Let a women take total control and you WILL have a failed relationship.

If she cant accept what you do, I'd keep looking. Plenty will.

Post by: Overload on August 27, 2007, 10:13:09 AM
First off, no worries...I wouldn't have pressed the issue at all if I thought anything you might say would offend me...it is a topic I like talking about and I don't get offended easily.

Anyway, just to touch on what you said a little bit, kind of just food for thought sort of stuff. Like you said, there are around ten thousand differant religions in the world, obviously all of these can't be right. Even so, I've always found in life if there are fake or counterfit things, then there has to be a "real." I mean think about it, no one ever counterfits something that isn't real in the first place.

So if there is a "real" answer or solution to the question of God's existence, how do you know which one is real when there are so many claims to this purposed reality? It's easiest to try and approach it like a mathematical situation, or rather this is the desired approach since this is how things make the most sense to our minds. You know, like 2+2 = 4, this is absolute and easy to express and see, it is also imposable to dispute. But with God's existence things cannot be approached this way, we can't approach it like we would every day scenarios IMO. Is it complicated? No, I don't think so, but the approach is still differant IMO. You sort of, for lack of a better word, have to lay aside your own humanistic way of thinking. After all, why would God the creator of man be able to be revealed by humanistic terms? Obviously he can't be because he himself would not be human. It would be like if a fully functioning robot created by a man tried to explain and understand the existence of his creator, a human being, in ways that relate to his own existence as a robot. Bad example? Maybe, kind of corny I know, but it fits IMO.

You make alot of good points Arnold and i agree with what you are saying.

Your example makes sense to me, and i can understand what you mean by it.

I just view things from a very different perspective than most people do and at times i doubt my own views on life. things can change very quickly so i appreciate your comments. i have gone back and forth with myself on this topic several times, i have felt emotions that were unexplained. for example, i was driving back from a meeting and was sitting in traffic, i was in a horrible mood for several reasons. out of nowhere i got this wonderful feeling of love and happiness, almost like i was in a trance as i looked up at the sky. i felt this for a few moments and it was gone. 2 hours later my mother called me crying and told me my grandfather had passed away a few hours ago. at the funeral my uncle spoke of the EXACT same feeling he got driving to the hospital to see my grandfather before he passed, which he was too late and he passed before he arrived at the hospital. so, yes, i will say i have experienced things i could not explain, if at any point in my life i felt God existed it was at this point. i have never spoken any of this to anyone.

Yeah, someone like minded would be nice, but as long as they are supportive I could care less if there into the whole thing as well. If they're supportive of me, then I'll be supportive of them.

Kind of goes with what I said above. Any of you guys that find someone who is nuts about the whole BB/fit thing as you are and is supportive of your end of the deal as well...you'd better hang on to them, because these are few and far between. Why? Simply because this is a hard thing to understand and support, even if the individual understands it, it can still be tough IMO.

You make alot of good points Arnold and i agree with what you are saying.

Interesting story bro. Stuff like this happens all the time to all of us IMO. Probably not to this degree on a regular basis but there are aspects and events in life that occur all the time that can really make you stop and think IMO. Sometimes they hit you right in the face just like this one did you...other times they're a little more subtile but that doesn't mean they aren't there.

My last show I craved BEER...probably because I was, of course, so dehydrated. 2 Mich Ultras and I was buzzed  :)  Washed down a Kobe beef burger and fries with a slice of Cheesecake for dessert....the only place open was Cheesecake Factory, darn?! Then, sipped Pedialite all the way thru the next day. Did not get the dreaded water bloat like I usually do and attribute to the pedialite.

If you ever get up this way I'll hook you up. I keep trying to find reasons to make it. The real problem is my wife won't touch the stuff (she only likes chili without beans). So that usually leaves me with about a gallon or so of chili to eat by myself. It's also got quite a kick to it.

"IF" you feel like being healthy, obviously the sour cream and cheese can be fat free or low fat. BUT the fats are what gives it the consistency.

Mine tells me.. BBers are "Ugly"...& "If you gain 10 more lbs of MUSCLE - Im GONE!" (that was about 30lbs ago).

But she also points out - "See, you can even make people hate you who've never met you!"  ;D

Naw Rim, I dont think theres any threat there.

My girlfriend is into and understands the whole scene  but does not read the boards.

We go to shows together and she "gets it"...we went to the Europa in Dallas and going to the O in Vegas which are like vacations for us. We sprinkle in other activities (non bodybuilding related) when we go to these shows. She even will be pining my tris for me soon  :D

Regardless, if your girl loves who you are, should not matter how much muscle you have! She knows about my extended family here and is glad that I can learn about the darkside from people that know their shit! Lets just hope she does not cruise what I have written on the Sex Board  :o

That's funny because my wife can't stand the sport. Never played sports or really exercised until she met me. Now she'll trian about three times a week (usually only with me).

HOWEVER, she is getting into football now and bought me the NFL package for our two year aniversary.

I was really proud of her when she called me the other day and had the Raiders pre-season game on! I almost cried, I was so proud :'(

Who here trains with some sort of low volume high intensity protocol? In the past I've always been a relatively high volume guy, but this year I'm drastically changing things and going towards more of a HIT routine. I say more of a HIT routine, but not exactly HIT persay, it's more along the lines of the Dave P. philosophy. Hey, I figure if I'm going to use his dieting methods I might as well add the whole package for the full benefit.

For those unaware of the Dave P. style HIT training, it is again along the same philosophies as actual HIT but slightly a bit more volume, not quite as low volume but not high volume by any means.

Anyway, I dieted this past year using this type of training and really liked it, so this will be my first run at trying to gain using this. Any opinions or suggestions?

I wish I'd tried low volume many years ago, back when I could have REALLY benefited from it.
You can train hard or long, but not both.
 
Getting to the few sets that count as fast as you can, doing them at max weight and intensity without get hurt, and go recover is the trick.

AJ, Your Dad (Arnold Senior  ;D) prolly would have had a even more impressive build at his peak if he could have pried himself out of the Gym a little faster each training session.......

Another thing worth looking at is the top PLers  speed vs max effort day switch up.
Forcing the body to generate various qualities of force. Explosive vs slow moving max effort.
I think that explosiveness is being overlooked by a lot of BBers and they are missing out.
Check out the thickness on some of them fat PLers... Theres some awesome muscle w/ real integrity under all the pancakes and chocolate and beer.
Youall dont have to eat like them, but stealing some of they methods may be of benefit.

It is the only way I have trained since taking up BB. I learned from Mentzer himself with personal sessions right about the time he went off the deep end. Then modified with a bit more volume, ala Dorian Yates in early 90's. Dorian and I had a candid discussion about Mentzer and tweaking HIT for what works best for you. At that time, I was natty so was by far the best way for results in the shortest amount of time. Few w/u's on first exercise and 2 working sets per exercise. EX: Chest would be a total of about 6-8 working sets at 8-12 reps. If you get 12, too light...

Lately, been studying Dogcrapp version since I am not natty and can hit a bit more often. I have tweaked my Dorain routine a bit since being on with hitting ea. bodypart about every 5th day where in the past was every 7th day. Mark Dugdale trains with a modified version of Dogcrapp+Dorian.

I agree, Dad would have been even better if he could have figured out that his volume was too high...most of us would be worthless piles of shit if we trained like he did for a very long time. When I first got into lifting seriously I jumped on to the Arnold style of training straight from his book. I started at level one and stuck with that for around 3-4 months. During that time I grew very fast, but I was still pretty fresh so anything would have worked. After that i went to level 2 in his plan and after about 2-3 months of that my progress started going backwards...that's when I started realizing something had to change. For those that have never tried the Arnold style training, he has you hitting every bodypart 3xwk with very high volume, 5sets per exercise and multiple exercises...it's insane and there are probably only a handfull of people all time who could get away with that.

Funny story, 3 years ago at the Arnold Q&A after the ASC, someone asked him to lay out a good delt routine. He said the only way to grow big delts was to hit them with as many sets as possible and that if you did anything under 28sets per delt trainings session then you were short changing yourself. hey, I'm the biggest Arnold fan in the world but when I heard him say this I was already at a place to where I knew he didn't know what he was talking about. I mean come on, 28 sets for delts and you're hitting them 3xwk...I don't' care how much gear you're on, but I doubt any man hear could handle that, lol

DC training seems interesting and I've looked into it. The only thing I don't like is the dieting methods he impores with it...too overboard IMO.

One possible reason why DAD is so beat up nowadays!

Back then, obviously, the science behind their gear intake was non existant which is one reason he is on Dialysis. They tried to just take as much gear as possible with no rhyme or reason behind their methods to help them recover from the overabundant training. As with drugs, training science has evolved and he is only speaking of what he knew then. 28 sets, no flippin' way!! I trained delts yesterday for a total of 8 working sets and they are brutally sore today!!

As for DC, he does give his "recommendations" but I know guys that use other nutritionist with his training and Dante is really cool with that. He is not one to say he knows everything and will allow the trainee to adjust (diet and training) according to them making progress. Which is one reason I am considering his program.

Arnold's on dialysis? That's news to me...you sure about this? I know he's got the heart condition which keeps him from ever training heavy again, but I've never heard about him being on dialysis.

You know when it comes to any type of low volume training, the hardest part for me has been trying to recondition my mind. Basically I've brainwashed myself over the years simply because like a lot of you I love to train just for trainings sake. Honestly, I would much rather train with the highest volume possible, as much as I can physically stand each time because training itself is so enjoyable to me. And of course the old adage "more is not always better," is sometimes so hard to get around in your own mind. But needles to say, as much as I do enjoy training, I am more interested in the training being as efficient as humanly possible...so it's low volume for me for a while. I'm sure as I get into this style of training even more, I'll make adjustments and the sets and exercises may creep up in numbers, then again they may not, it will simply be what ever works best.

I believe it was about 5 yrs ago or so, before the Governor elections. I could be wrong but I could have sworn I read about him needing dialysis. But then again, you know how rumors fly around in this business. It was seperate from the heart issues.

As for low volume, you are 100% right, it is the mental factor you will need to get used to. Once you find that intensity level to make up for the lack of volume, you might be surprised. But don't talk yourself into more volume, follow protocol young man and give it some time!!

When i'm not following a pure powerlifting protocol like westside i use a combination of Max-OT, HIT and DC training. i combined them all to my needs, as i don't like them all completely, i think some leave out important things. i love rest pause training from DC, it works wonders on flyes, pullovers and pulldowns.

i think the more intense you train and heavier you lift, the less sets you can do.

for example on chest day i do about 12 sets at the most! then i try to see how many pushups i can do. some days i can barely get 15 pushups but when i'm fresh i can crank out 50 without a problem. so i know i've fully used all the muscle fibers.

now, when i trained high volume YEARS ago i was doing 20 sets per bodypart and i still had energy in the tank at the end. when i do low volume heavy training i'm drained by 12-16 sets.

in my opinion, and remember i train for strength only(the size comes with it IMO), the heavier and more intense you train, the less sets you need. on the other hand if your a pumper and like to do high reps with light weight then i think you can do alot more sets, like Arnold and Jay cutler.

i never got a single thing from high volume training. every now and then i'll do 20 rep squats or benches but i usually stick to 12 reps or less. on power moves(bench, squat, deadlift) i NEVER go above 5 reps, even on my warmups.

Trab is right, for strength you need max effort day and speed day. heavy weight overload + speed = strength! any strong lifter will tell you this.

IMO Ronnie Coleman's style of training is PERFECT! heavy and basic!

THe thing about HIgh volume is - You feel Great when all pumped up..
Its addictive (hope they dont make it illegal, better not tell them)
Its hard/ impossible to force a lot of  young guys to cut a workout to 1hr or so.

Thing is their form is usually so bad that if they was doing it right, and heavy, it'd be impossible to go on those marathon sessions.

They ought to put intelligent weight training/ cardio programs in all the schools.
Individually tailor them, this Obesity epidemic is repulsive, expensive and a threat to the country.
We waste a lot of $'z  on stuff thats totally useless in the schools.

I agree.

i do feel great when pumped up.

it's funny because people give me shit about how i only workout for about 1 to 1.5 hour every day. for some reason they think you need to spend 3 hours to build muscle, which only increases cortisol levels. then i have them train with me and by the end of that 1 hour they are about to die. it makes me laugh because they don't know what "hard work" in the gym is. pumping out 15 reps with 225 isn't a workout to me, squeezing up 475 for 3 reps is a fucking workout, i breathe so fucking heavy after triples and doubles. your body is using MAXIMUM effort to get that weight up. shit, i've almost passed out after a heavy 600 pound deadlift double. try doing that with some pump reps...lol...well, besides squats! i've seen stars after some high rep squats.

You know the another one of the challenges of lifting this way is trying to find that 'right" weight. What I mean is going heavy but not going too heavy to where you aren't working the muscle intended...I've only been at this low volume style for a little while but this seems like it's someting you have to pay a bit more attention to. It's very easy to do on chest moves anyway, but even more so now...at least I've found. And I am anal about this...if I'm doing any type of chest press and I feel my shoulders taking over at all or my tri's taking too much of the brunt away from my chest, then that's too heavy...I want chest growth not a big pressing number.

Am I saying all this clearly? I just read over what I said and I'm not sure if I did or not.

Post by: Rimbaud on September 04, 2007, 06:36:48 PM
I don't think I have an actual training method (anymore). I basically trian based on how I feel. I usually set aside a certain number of sets per bodypart, per week. I usually train with moderate to high reps (about 80% of the time). As for rest between sets it all depends on what exercises I'm doing. I'd say on average about 60-90 seconds between sets.

There is a guy I know at my gym who is 24 and I've decided is one of the strongest natural guys I've ever known. For example, this spring when he was 230lbs he was squatting 600+lbs for 6-8 reps ass to calves...and I do mean ass to calves, they touch! He dieted down this summer to 213, again completely natural and is still squatting 500+ lbs for 6-8 ass to calves weighing 213lbs...feet closer then normal, slightly less the shoulder width.

Anyway, he's starting his first cycle in about a wk, and back to bulking...I can't wait to see what kind of weight this guy moves!

Thats pretty good!!  I experienced something similar just yesterday.  This dude i know who was a trainer at my gym, hes about 6' 244 lbs now.  Last year he was a natural and did his first show, didn't do too good.  Well over the summer he hooked up with another trainer dude who also used to work at our gym, he is a short maybe 5'5" VERY thick dude about 260lbs and is incredibly strong!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  I mean I did not believe it till I saw it  :o  The cat inclines 495lbs like it is nothing for like 10 reps  again would not believe it unless I saw it.  This dude squatted 800lbs in the gym for 5 and made it look easy, full ROM.  The dude trains in full sweats with a hood and comes in there like a little bear.  

Anyhow these dudes trained together for a while.  Now the 6 foot dude was when he first started training with the bear was nothing special as far as training and has since geared up and put on some good size to where he is now.  but yesterday I was in the gym training chest and he was training back, the bear has since left the gym but his buddy the 6 footer was doing T-bar rows with the end of the bar stuck in a corner and using the close grip handle on the bar.  Now this was like the dudes 3 or 4th exercises I saw him already deadlifting and doing BB bent rows with some good weights.  I walk by and he says "hey will you stand on the back of the bar so it does not lift up"  I'm like "sure" at this time I look at the bar and the cat has 9 freeking plates on there!!  I'm thinking to myself this is gonna be good expecting to be using all legs and have terrible form, the fu*ker bangs out 9 reps with very reasonable form for that weight......I was amazed and told him so.

Thats what you need to surround yourself with in the gym, people better than you.  Man I'm gonna do a huge offseason cycle this winter and hook up with that dude and get down to some very serious training......If I survive.

Agreed big time. I've never trained with this guy before but I'm going to start trying to work in with him when are schedules work. Are first session will be tomorrow for legs...should be fun. He's already got a regular partner and he's no slacker himself. Normally I would never want to jump in with 2 other guys, would take to long, but these 2 do not mess around so it should be fine.

I'm telling you this guy is phenomenal, and not just strong. The strength is what caught my eye at first because like the guy L2H just talked about he stays completely covered up most of the time and I never really noticed what he actually looked like.

The guy used to do some BB comps in the teen class when he was younger but hasn't done one in years. But now he is on the war path and has laid out a very nice plan that will have him on stage around June.

I've never made a claim like this about anyone I know because it's never fit IMO, but you guys mark my words, this guy has the genetic stuff, and if he stays healthy I guarantee you'll hear about this guy in the very near future...not a weak point on this brother.

That's cool. Makes me wish I had a training partner again. Since I trained with you in May I've trained with a couple friends here & there. Makes me wish I could find a perminent partner...oh well. I've always been amazed how much more you can lift with someone else there.

That's nicer then what she'll do to me when & if she finds out.  ;D Why pens? I don't know but I've always love fountain pens. I used to do a ton of writing (poems, journals, stories, etc). I've considered writing again lately & thought a good pen would be a nice start or at least something to get the ball rolling. Well see. It's really a sharp pen.

No doubt, it helps a lot but not too many people out there who want to do it consistently...to bad, they don't know what they're missing.

I've had several regular partners over the past few years, but none of them seem to stick. My last training partner was a pretty good one, but we had kind of a falling out this past spring...childish bullshit if you ask me. Even so, our training/BB lifestyles have kind of gotten pretty different anyway, so it was probably for the best in that regard. He's gotten kind of burned out with the whole thing and that can actually bring you down.

I have a ps3, i got it when it first came out. If you are into video games it has the best graphics by far.Blows 360out of the water.There aren't too many games right now but there aretonsof things coming out Q407 and Q108. I personally only like racing games and I pretty much got it for the blueray player. I have a new 1080p tv and the movies are unbelievable.I figureed a bluerayplayer was 1000 and the ps3 was only 600 so how could I go wrong.

You know the another one of the challenges of lifting this way is trying to find that 'right" weight. What I mean is going heavy but not going too heavy to where you aren't working the muscle intended...I've only been at this low volume style for a little while but this seems like it's someting you have to pay a bit more attention to. It's very easy to do on chest moves anyway, but even more so now...at least I've found. And I am anal about this...if I'm doing any type of chest press and I feel my shoulders taking over at all or my tri's taking too much of the brunt away from my chest, then that's too heavy...I want chest growth not a big pressing number.

Am I saying all this clearly? I just read over what I said and I'm not sure if I did or not.

Yeah i understand what you mean. Flat bench is a shoulder and tricep movement for me anyway. i can focus on squeezing the pecs on the way up on the light sets but with my power training it's mainly triceps locking the weight out. so i agree with what you are saying. this is why on max effort chest day i do incline DB press and rest pause flyes after my power training, that way i know my chest is getting enough work for some growth. i will say that after a bench competition my chest is always sore as hell, so i know it gets worked quite a bit even though i don't focus on it during the press.

there is definately a TOO HEAVY limit for me as well. i like to be very explosive when i do my triples and doubles. my training partner always says i'm going too light but i like to know i'm in full control of that weight over my chest. i've dumped the bar on my chest before and it doesn't feel very good!

OK, so trained legs today with that guy I told you all about yesterday and all I can say is fantastically brutal! So glad to actually train with some one again and not fly solo, especially someone who goes balls to the wall! Needless to say, I did not squat with 6 plates, although he did, and I swear his ass almost hits the ground!

AJ, you better save up for new blue Jeans...

One thing though.. and we all know this, I dont care if its being competive chasing your buddie on a high power motorcycle on back roads, or trying to match them on plates in the gym... its allways easy to go a little to far.
Ive done it, so has most everyone. 
I dont know if theres a good clear way to put it, but you know what Im driving at.

Its great when you got somone to push you. The art of doing it just right is the trick.

Great post...

i always get my best workouts when i train with guys stronger than me. it makes you push yourself just a little more. men are very competitive by nature so we are always trying to hang with the big boys. as long as you don't add too many plates it's always a good idea to compete with your training partner. it helps both of you push yourself a little bit more than normal.

Looks similiar to mine:

1 container of egg whites (16 ounces or whatever)
1.5 cups of Oatmeal
1 pound of blueberries
1 small container of fat-free cottage cheese
dash of vanilla extract

Blend until smooth.

I usually eat them twice a week or so & freeze the leftovers.

I also eat them with olive oil butter & honey.

I just make my protein pancakes like regular ones, except i add protein powder and a few extra eggs.

I have been sick lately for about a week and i'm finally feeling better, it's because i started antibiotics (i have lung infection). On last monday i went to the dr. and after very brief conversation he gave me scripts to: Antibiotics, strong oral solution with ephedrine and codeine, xanax, albuterol and a few other meds. that i don't know what you call in US. I probably just should have asked something like Anadrol, because he really didn't seem to care what all the things were for...

I throw some whey protine in them, but need watch the heat.

Sometimes I make a giant tub full of oatmeal cookies w/ less shugar and extra eggwhites and whey protine. Nuts, rasins, Flax,.... just grab everything in site  ;D

Nice long slow steady energy...


**Rimbaud** - Does your wife ever make "STICKY RICE".  Its so sticky it can roll up in a ball, it seems to be a lot
lower GI index than regular rice. It lasts a long time in the gut.  Its popular w/ the field workers, as it
and a gut full of chicken keeps you going a long time.

Need cook it in a big steam bamboo funnel over boiling water... Good stuff.

Hey, that shiets real over there. Even the Bar Girls get very possessive.
Theres a large # of guys that happens to, but if you saw the abuse many of the women have to put up w/

It'd  make you more understanding.

There's also a large majority of poor, not very educated. There's not so much a middle class.

Sorry to hijack the thread again guys, but this is prolly ONE OF THE BEST WEEKS of my LIFE.  I just calculated that i have won about or little over 1000$ in online gambling during this week! (Desbite the fact, that i have a lung infection, which is btw gone as of now.)

And i just heard the words from my little brother that i never expected to hear from ANYONE. OK, so here goes the story: when i was a VERY young child we had this TV-SHOW here in Finland, the gladiators. One of the main stars was this guy called THE VIKING, TONY HALME. He used to wrestle for the WWF also(now WWE). His name was Ludvig Borga Hellraiser from Hellsinki. This guy was one of the reasons that i started training so young and eating so much. I thought to myself that if someday i could be atleast close to his size it would be INCREDIBLE. Ok, so my brother saw him today in Helsinki and my brother told me that RIGHT AT THIS MOMENT i'm bigger and leaner than he is! And he HAS retained most of his size from BACK in the day! I'm on cloud nine! He is much taller than i'm, i'm 5.10 (177cm) and he is like 6.3-6.4 but my brother said that i have more MUSCLE!

If this post seems like i'm bragging or something i'm sorry, but i had to get this out of my system and i'm REALLY feeling good now.
Desbite the fact that last night i was as drunk as anyone can ever be, i guess i slept over my hangover...

Yeah, it's typically not as crowded on Fri, but not by a lot...actually each day they have everyone packed in there like sardines. And of course if you want to meet the BB who are actually competing in the Arnold, you pretty much have to wait for Sun for that...but who cares about that, the girls are the best part anyway!

I'm really going to try to make it this year since I missed it last year. All of us that will be there need to try and plan at on at least getting together and grabbing a bite to eat...that'd be pretty cool. After that we can all walk around the expo in our getbig steroid t-shirts, lol!

I'm really going to try to make it this year since I missed it last year. All of us that will be there need to try and plan at on at least getting together and grabbing a bite to eat...that'd be pretty cool. After that we can all walk around the expo in our getbig steroid t-shirts, lol!

No t shirts for me in Columbus in March....bbbbrrrrr, I would freeze me arse off!

So I'm sitting downstairs last night & my wife starts freaking out & tells me to come upstairs. When I finally do it's because Britney Spears was on the VMA's (why she wanted me up there I don't know). Anyway, so I watched the entire performance. It was horrible - the lip-synching was bad & off, the dancing was cheesy, & she looked pretty bad. Now don't get me wrong she probably looked better then the average house-wife but she's a far cry from what she used to be.

That's my rant.

Any of you guys ever do those sort of 1 leg squat/lunge things on the smith? I don't stray too much from the simple basics but I threw those in last wk and they hurt so much I did them again tonight...the inside of my thighs all the way up my crotch feels like it was ripped to pieces...that must be a good thing, lol!

It's funny, you can't go all that heavy on these at all, and for some reason they hurt more then anything on earth...and I do mean hurt in a good way, not injury hurt. I did them towards the end of the leg session and didn't' go above a 45 & 25 on each side...not sure how much weight that actually is since it's the smith, but I don't care, it has got to be a good additive now and then IMO.

Step-Ups on a box are Nasty to.

Lunges are only second to squats and front squats. they are one of the best exercises you could ever do for quads, hams and glutes. try pausing with your knee on the ground for 2 seconds and then press up, you will feel it in your glutes big time. i don't use the smith machine for anything, i do them free weight.

Women who what some "junk(muscle) in the trunk" should do lunges, they work the glutes like nothing else. they also work the teardrop on your quads very well.

i've done them for years and it shows.

Yeah, I don't know what the actual move is called, I guess it really is simply a standing in place lunge but the difference is you can put your foot much further back then you could dong a standard lunge.

1. stand under weight like you were going to squat
2. kick one leg back just about as far as it will go and bring the other one forward just slightly
3. squat down until the knee of the back leg touches the ground.

I know, again it seems really like a lunge but for some reason it hits the inner part of the thigh a lot more.

I've tried those numerous times but they never felt comfortable.

Now sometimes to mix up leg day I'll do lunges on one of those half exercise balls (not sure what they're called). When I do that I really feel it the next day. It's also really hard to keep your balance.

OMG NO! You admitted to using a exersize ball!! Stop!  ;D

BTW - the big red ones are great for increasing spine arch in the PL bench set up...

Great for situps too, hits low abs good off a blue or white one.

I only train people with the thera-ball if they can't support their own bodyweight.

It's not for serious lifters.

It can also be used for core.

I use it more to mix things up. I'll do a couple sets of eight or ten with each leg (only hold maybe 20-30 lbs total) & I can barely walk the next day. I'll usually do it do end my workout.

Do you mean you use the half ball as a step so to speak? You know, with the lead leg that is lunging out, it steps on to the half ball? I've done lunges like this using a step and it's an OK variation now and then...but nothing beats the parking lot if you are able to do that.

When I used to train at the college Rec center several years back, my training partner and I would do lunges going up the handycap ramp. The ramp was about 15 lunges up...we would go up and down. I don't know if that was really worth anything or not, but it was pretty tough and we thought we were hardcore, lol!

That is an excellent way to build balance. We did alot of drills on those things when i took Muay Thai. we used to stand on one and practice high kicks to help us balance, it was very hard at first but once you got it down it was an excellent training technique.

I also did lunges on one during my physical therapy for my knee. it isn't easy doing lunges or squats on those things but it helped my knee big time.

Here in Finland everyone speaks english, i just speak it better than others. Sometimes when i read the posts of other guys here, (guys from the US) it makes me wonder what they teach in the schools over there. I started learning english at age 6 from the TURTLES AND HE-MAN. Then at the age of 9 they started to teach english to me in school and by the time i wen't to 8th grade the teachers selected me to this class that has EVERYTHING in english. After all that when i went to business school i was selected to the international class (1/7) got selected. Also i have been traveling a lot, when i turned 16 i went to Greece with my own money. Of course i read a lot of magazines in english such as: Scientific American, Black Belt, Muscle Mag, Muscular Development etc. I also speak little of: swedish, german, spanish and very little of few other ones.

Oh yeah, i allmost forgot. When i was about ten i collected a lot of Hockey cards and so did many others. Sometimes you got a card that was valuable, but you or anyone else didn't know the value. So i heard about this magazine, Beckett Hockey Monthly that listed the $ values of each card for example pinnacle, 1994 Chris Chelios = 21$
So what i did was colleted all the valuable ones and sold them to the store's for a profit or to the other kids. I still got most of my Special Cards. It was so easy, all i had to do was find out how much one finnish mark was in dollars and to think very i "off loaded" my valuables, because i couln't allways use the same store. My dad was very impressed with my small business venture.

For the past month I've been off work with a bruised nerve or something in my elbow. Basically I've got very little grip strength in my left hand. Anyway, so for the past couple weeks I've been doing a lot of cardio, legs, abs, & stretching. Well last night was no different. I was using one of those lower back extension machines & for about a minute I heard this loud buzzing - almost like an alarm. I turn around & see people crowded in one corner. I walk overthere & see a guy laying on the ground not moving &/or breathing (face was blue/purple). They had the defibulator machine hooked up to him - while I was there he was shocked several times & it didn't seem to work. Well about five minutes later they chased everyone downstairs & the fire department finally arrived. Shortly there after I just went home. If I had to make an educated guess I'd say the guy died.

It's funny, I've never seen one bodybuilder who produces so much love/hate among fans...everyone seems to feel a lot of love or a lot of hate for Jay...no in between. Personally, I'm a pretty big fan, although he is quite the mass monster, he still poses a lot of great qualities a BB is supposed to have.

My least favorite Mr. O, and I bet I get ragged on for saying this, Frank Zane.

Stretch marks on a Mr Olympias ass like a pregnant woman are just not my idea of the pinnacle of male muscular development..
 
Stretch marks, well, it happens, and there isn't a lot you can do about it. Hey, I'm not near as big as Jay or any pro, but even I've developed a few marks over the past couple of years...a few light ones on my lats, and on my left bicep. I hate them, but they are what they are.

I agree on the "death stimulants" statement and if someones gut is hanging over their posing shorts, obviously they shouldn't place well...but I just don't' see this as the case with Jay.

If ya look like Michelin Tire man 8 months of the year, are ya the world champ in the BBing game?

Maybe so, but the 364 days prior to the O or any show do not matter...all that matters is what you look like on show day. The rest of the year, look like a holocaust victim or Captain lard ass...doesn't matter IMO as long as you're on point at show time.

It's funny, I've never seen one bodybuilder who produces so much love/hate among fans...everyone seems to feel a lot of love or a lot of hate for Jay...no in between. Personally, I'm a pretty big fan, although he is quite the mass monster, he still poses a lot of great qualities a BB is supposed to have.

My least favorite Mr. O, and I bet I get ragged on for saying this, Frank Zane.

I agree, he's a mass monster but i think bodybuilding should be more than blocky mass and 40 inch waists with delts and bi's filled with oil.

Zane was decent for his time frame, he also used a minimum of AAS from what i've heard. i think he was ripped but lacked mass.

i like guys like Wolf, rockel, Jackson, Sami(PDI)...i don't like the monsters but ronnie back in the early 2000's was incredible. it's the guts, water retention and lack of being "peeled" that i miss. look at titus back in the early 90's, munzer, Milos...etc. most of the pro's in the 80's had better conditioning than the top 5 guys today, something is wrong here.

i just wish these guys would stop the size game and get SHREDDED!!! guys like ruhl and cutler are what i "personally" think is ruining this game.

of course this is my opinion, i'd take Arnold or Mike Mentzers look over ANY pro today.

AGREED but on this day, Jay did not deserve to win. Victor was the clear cut champion! I was there and in person is night and day differance than pics.

Talking with a pro that did not compete said the judges could not give Vicor 1st because he can not leave the country due to his legal issues and other legal issues pending as well. They actually deliberated this!! Here is what is wrong with BB, you judge the pysiques that day, not discuss who should win behind closed doors, best pysique that day wins and Jay was off, period.

Something else about Vic, he's a MD guy and there has been a lot of talk, especially lately that an MD could never win the O. True? I don't' know, but it wouldn't suprise me.

Yeah, i understand what you're saying, I'm a big fan of the more aesthetic guys as well...Vic and Wolf are both phenomenal, but both of these guys also possess some of the characteristics of a mass monster, Freeman too, it's sort of like being a hybrid and I think this is a good direction for the sport.

As for guys like Ruhl, I'll always be a fan of the freaks at some level, it's so inhuman that it's kind of cool. But even so, I do think that the sport is better off and that the essence of a true BB champ is more along the lines of the guys I just mentioned.

A while back I told you guys about me getting free laser hair removal any time I wanted...well some of you wanted to know how that went, well it FUCKING SUCKS! I had my back done and that was the most painful thing I can ever remember, my sister (she's the one who does it) said, "it will sting like a rubber band popping) I thought, "OK, cool no big deal." BullShit! It felt like a small pin knife every time she hit a spot.

What sucks even more, for this to be 100% permanent, it takes 3-5 treatments depending on the person, so I have to go in for my 2nd her in a wk or so. Plus, each time you go, they turn the level of the laser up even higher until you reach the highest point necessary. You can bet your ass that I will never do this again without some kind of "assistance" if you catch my drift, lol!

True, that was the other issue with Vic winning. So you will see Vic become a Weider athlete sometime this year or next year because Jay said one more and he is done, that means Jay wins next year too.

Hold my hand? Nah, I was implying some kind of pain reliever, be it by pill or alcohol, lol! Seriously, if you wanted to come down here and knock me out first before i go through that again, by all means, please, feel free.

How hairy am I? I'd say medium hairy...not like a gorilla or some of these guys you see where it looks like Velcro, but even so, the hair is there, plus my hair is jet black, so that makes it look even worse. Sis said 3-5 should do it...she said it works for guys who are hairier then me.

A little food for thought. now I have no idea if this correlates at all, but I have wondered. before I started using any AAS I had a fair amount of chest hair, but none on my back. Shortly after I started AAS hair sprouted on my back and got thicker everywhere else. Coincidence, maybe it's just my Greek genes finally kicking in. Whatever it is, I can't stand it.

Oh and one more thing, and know one is going to believe this, but before I started getting laser treatments, I actually learned how to shave my back myself. Difficult, yes, but it can be done...all you need is a long stick and some duct tape.

Damn...you're making me rethink it.  :-\

Yeah it does...I've thinned a little on top in the past few years...but it seems to have slowed down. Luckily for me, I always had an extremely thick head of hair, so thinning out a little wasn't all that big of a deal.

We'll never all agree on the best champion and that makes it fun.
My own favorites cover a wide range of body types and dont even make much sense to myself.



So, that Lazer thing prolly aint a good idea for the groin area?  ;D

Hey, what them chick go thru for us Huh?  Did she bring her friends in to watch?
I bet she really enjoyed it.

I hate the casual talk about narcotics on here sometimes, but perhaps 5-7.5mg of Hydro and 10mg of Diazapam would
make this go better.
 Please dont take that shit lightly, the thing about hydro is it dont let people know how serious a med they are using untill its too late.
 The chemists did TOO GOOD a job detuning the bad narcotic sides for the level of pain relief it can provide.
 But the short 1/2 life hydro rollercoaster is in some ways one of the worst on the narcotic shelf once someone crosses the invisible line.

i just have my girl use clippers with a #1 guard for my back. nair removed hair in spots so i looked like i had a skin disease. i shaved with a razor and it was tourture for a few days in this heat we have down here. every time i sweat my back would itch like crazy.

i'd like to get the lazor removal, pain doesn't bother me too much. a few Vic's i have left over from surgery should help me out. i mean it's legal right? why not get fucked up and have some hair removed that was caused by those evil AAS that made them grow!

I deadlift in just socks and i squat in those Inzer power shoes. you would be suprised how much of a difference those shoes make in stability, regular shoes have soft soles that can move when you are squating heavy. i thought they would be a waste of cash until some of the guys at my powerlifting gym talked me into buying them. i also use them for olympic moves like cleans, snatches and standing overhead presses.

other days i wear my Nike running shoes.

I think people would freak if I started squating barefoot (I've got some ugly ass feet). I used to lift in a pair of indoor football shoes (hard almost plastic bottoms). However, since moving twice I can't find them. I've been using cross training shoes for awhile but looking for something else.

I think the best shoes i have for squatting are these shitty ass 20 dollar "sk8tr" shoes I bought from Loblaws (a grocery store in canada) one day when i'd forgoten my gym shoes at home and didnt feel like drivin all the way home. They're great because they're just so damn flat, and theres so much cushion around the foot. Love em. Yet if i walk more than 100 metres in them my feet hurt more than you could ever imagine. Guess they're only good for squatting:P:P

DAMN! Got mine at the outlet store, $35.

Just don't wear them around for a long period of time as my arches get sore if I do.

Nike Free...best for leg day and calves.

Could never squat barefoot, blow my arches out if I did! You almost have to have flat feet for that.

Comfy shoes but they fall apart very quickly. i used to jog in them and they lasted maybe 5 months.

My workout shoes are only worn at the gym - not even to the gym. Find they last a lot longer that way.

I feel like somthings wrong if Im not either barefoot or in steel toes.

One day I was 1/2 way to a job, thinking "Oh what a beautiful day, the air even feels good on my feet.."

I look down, and I'm wearing my sandles headed to a const site...  ;D
The paint cans say "Warning may cause brain and nervous system dammage" for a reason I guess.

Personally, I think the Shox are the worst shoe ever created for squatting. Cool looking shoe yes, and I've got about 6 pair of them, but I cannot squat in them I I can't understand how anyone can.

I have to squat in hard soled shoes. anything with cushion i feel unstable with heavy weight. i used to squat in chuck taylors or the flat soled Adidas.

I'm the same way...I prefer no shoes when I squat but if I do that every wk my arches start screaming...so I split it up about 50/50 these days, but probably a little more shoeless then not.

If I squat in any shoe with a thick cushion, especially a shox, I cannot for for the life of me keep my heels flat on the ground, which in turn will make you lean forward...not good.

The pair of shoes I do squat in are not comfortable for anything else. Their Nike's and the bottoms are very flat and brick hard...and I do mean very hard. I also really like doing lunges in these shoes...when I bought these a year ago, I know I looked like a tool trying them out. Most people just put a shoe on and walk around a bit to see if they like it...in this case, I actually lunged a few lunges across the store in them and did some boyweight squats to see how they felt. Looked like an idiot? Probably, but the point was to find the perfect shoe for legs, so who cares.

BTW, the right shoes are everything when doing legs!

Not that anyone here cares but it's kind of cool to me.

Body weight right now is right at 200lbs and my strength in the gym is now right where it was this past winter/spring when I weighed 230...a little stronger on some lifts.

I've always said that I don't worry about actual numbers in terms of what weight I'm using, and I don't, the actual growth and development is more important to me...but even so, it is still kind of cool IMO.

Now the key is trying to improve on this without getting too stupid and letting my bf get too high as I try to get bigger and better...heaven help me, the constant struggle within, lol!

Well after about four weeks I'm finally back to work (off since labor day). I injured my elbow - which basically results in the swelling pinching the Ulna Nerve. Left me with numbness in two fingers & no grip strength. It has completely sucked - my training went down the toilet. However, the past two weeks I've done some light weights, stretching, legs, abs, & a shitload of cardio. I'm about 80-90% back to normal so it'll be a couple more weeks of light work.

On a side note I noticed that my bodyweight has actually gone up (only two or three pounds but still).

Actually, I like DB incline a lot better myself but I need to be doing more BB so this will help motivate me to do that. You know what's weird is, is that no type of incline movement bothers my shoulders, flat BB bench is fine, but flat DB bench absolutely tears my shoulders apart. I've never been able to figure this out?

Everyone is different. Incline BB has always bothered my shoulders since day one but i can flat BB or DB bench no problem. i think some poeple just can't do certian movements due to muscle insertion points and bone structure. Incline DB feels great but anything over 315 on BB incline and my shoulders are on fire for 3 days.

Knives - At my strongest i could do 140's for 12-15 deep reps after BB Flat bench. 140's were the highest DB's i've ever seen in a gym around here. i'm sure back then i could crank out a few with the 150's but i'll never know. now i do Incline DB with the 125's because that's the highest they go at my local gym(LA Fitness). even now that i'm clean i can do 20 deep reps with the 125's. when i say deep i mean the DB's touch my body at the bottom, full stretch.

A little update on my cousins condition. One of the vertebra he broke was the one closest to the skull. Doctors are saying it's a miracle he's even alive. Another good thing, he is not paralyzed, but they are attaching a halo to his head today which he will wear for at least 3months.

Here is exactly what happened. After the snap he took off down field, broke free and went 40yds down field with one guy to beat. As he and the last defender got close he cut hard and slipped...as he slipped the defender dove at him head first and made contact head to head, snapping my cousins head straight back.

He layed on the field for just a second and got up stumbling around and in a daze. When the coaches got to him he couldn't speak at all and he couldn't move his arms. He then collapsed on the ground right there.

He's able to speak right now but he's in a ton of pain. He is also very devastated because he knows his football days are over and his scholarship offers are now most likely out the window. I know it's tough to imagine anyone even thinking about football after something like this, but everyone knows how tough it is when you're passionate about something and it all comes crashing down.

For all of you who offered your thoughts and prayers, i really appreciate it.

Nice. When I was in college there was a group of Jevovah's Witnesses who would walk into your apartment (no lie - they did it to us a couple times). If the door was locked they would keep turning the knob for a couple minutes while knocking. We got sick of it after awhile so one of my roommates & I decided to fuck with them. We heard them coming down the hall & when they were about ten feet from our door my roommate threw me out the door into the wall across the hall wearing only a pair on tighty whiteys. He then grabbed me by my hair while on the ground & put a gun to my head. He then screamed "If you ever touch my coke again guy you're dead.". Needless to say that scared the shit out of them because they turned & ran out of the building. Well, I never saw them in the building after that. True story.

It should be noted that my roommate got a little overzealous & threw me into the wall pretty hard. The price you pay for peace.

a good friend of mine was our star running back in high school when we won state 2 times in 4 years. after our final game of the season our senior year we all went out and got pretty wasted. well, he was wrestling(he was also a good wrestler) with another friend and slipped a disk in his back, ending his football days. talk about bad luck, he lost a full ride to Ohio state.

Is your Dr a anti-AAS preacher too?

Before my last blood work I : Quit red meat for a few days, no egg yolks, Ate alot of salmon, took flax seed and
evening primrose, .... Basicly ate real clean. Did no hard training for 4 days prior to blood drawl..Only light cardio.

I had about as good as it gets cholestorol and Triglicerides and all other...

You should have seen Dr Steroid Hater's face when he looked at them figures  ;D

He asked in a puzzled tone "What do you eat"?

I told him, "Red meat at least twice a day, and fried whole eggs and cheese for breakfast most every day, Pizza, hot dogs... YOu know, normal stuff"...

His face was priceless  ;D  Talk about cognitive dissonance.
Still it dont get thru his head that even possibly his dated 1970's medical text book "Facts" are WRONG!

He again accused me of using steroids, which I was not, and I said "Ok, lets do a blood drawl tomorow and see, then
You'll have a indication to write for testosterone'.

Then the asshole got SO pissed he was shaking, stuck his fist in my face.  ;D
I didnt even blink,  I could stick this guys head thru the sheet rock if I pleased, and there's NOTHING he could do to stop me.

I turned my face sideway, wide open and told him "You can hit me if it makes you feel better, but its not going to
help anything".

Im done w/ him, I finaly got another Doc.

Right on.
And that same dork Dr wrote ANti-B after anti-B for chronic Sinus infections that would then go to bronchitus till
 I demanded a sinus specialist.
The sinus Dude sent me to alergy. Turned out It was as simple a washing my sinus's regularly w/ salt and soda.
 The ANtibiotics knock down the infection, but if theres a bunch of coagulated rotten black blood and puss up there, what happens after the pills stop?

Problem solved now. THAT Dr is a smart guy.

Resting heart rate: 48bpm

WOW!


Today i was installing a new TV and i got electrocuted from the old cord that was on the wall. I feel fine just got scared a bit...
I've had a shock or two from a small cord...sucks but no big deal usually.

BTW, you know anything about the band "Susperia"...I just discovered these guys this wk...Norwegian band, darkish and extremely hard musically, vocals semi-hard...not as hard as like "Nile" or "Zao."

Is your Dr a anti-AAS preacher too?



I don't have a regular doc anymore. The guy I used to go to retired about 2yrs ago. For the past few yrs though I have some friends that work at the hospital in the Lab and they run all this stuff for me...there are a couple docs up there who I'm cool with and they go over everything with me...honestly, they seem pretty indifferent about the AAS...only once has any of them made a negative comment and it was more of just a fun little jab at me.

Now this past summer when I had some problems that came out of now where, I couldn't get into a docs office fast enough so I just went into the walk in clinic. The PA there did show some concern about the AAS use but didn't bash me fro it or blame the problem on it. However, the hematologist she got involved was hell bent on blaming the AAS before the results even came back in. And get this, even after the blood work came in and we figured everything out, and even though there was nothing to blame on the AAS, he still said, "well, we don't really know what steroids do, so I know it's the steroids." I just said OK.

I got a new crew now, I'll prolly never get my chance at telling the Tenniss & golfer boy Dr taht if he'd tried some TE he
might still be married unless I run into him in town...

He doen't know how close he got to finding out whats behind the sheet rock...  ;)
But, it was almost comical. Like a little yapping dog...

He was SO Pissed he was just shaking...  The nut of it was he'd been forced against his will to prescribe me narcotic for my back. THREE specialists HE sent me to all recomended it, so he was cornered and trying to blame my back problem on anything...

When I told him, "Ok lets pull blood tommorow and then you'll have a indiaction to write TEStosterone and Narcotic"
He went F'ing nuts....

"What do you want me to do Trab?"  Thats a Rather strange thing for a Dr to say...  ???  ;D

I thought a second and replied.. "I want you to treat my back the way is says to in Merck manual and other medical
texts, as well as what the 3 speciaists YOU sent me to all recomend!".

That's when He Blew. Shaking his fist in my face. I really wanted to bring my elbow across his jaw, but I just calmly told him to "go ahead and hit me if it makes you feel better".

Yeah, don't get me started about this subject. I've had to hear this shit from docs my ENTIRE life. Even though we have great and FREE public health care here i still decided to start using a "private clinic" that way if they give me shit i just find out whos "in charge" in that company and complain to him and i know the docs don't wan't that because it might cost them their job and some good business. One more thing, it's allways nice to see their faces when they try to talk "medically" to one of their collegues and i know what they are saying. Like this one time in the army i "accidentally" heard the doc tell the nurse to give me placebo! I burned him on that one and said: "send me to a civil clinic or give me real pain killers, because i need them" (i could barely walk) or i'll report you. (I didn't even know who i could report about him, so i bluffed and he didn't call).

Yup, THey get all upset and feel threatened if you understand their little secret language.
Total bullshit field for the most part.
Ive met a couple good surgeons and other specialists, but mostly they and the US "system" are junk.
Bangkok's private clinics are much higher quality human service, and their ability and tech resources are just fine.
My wife compares going to the ER in the USA to the poorest quality public hospitals in Bangkok. She's 100% right.
The wait time to see a Dr is criminal here. They treat you not like a person. Its a total joke.

Maybe a dumb question but oh well, this is the "Locker Room."

Does anyone else here thrive off anger when they lift? I'm being serious...and no, I'm not talking about being so furious that you can't even function or being Captain Bad Ass because you take steroids...I'm talking about something in life that legitimately makes you angry (controlably so.)

Personally, I try to not be an angry person...makes you an ass and doesn't really do you any good. But at the same time, it's amazing what a little harnessed anger can do for you in the gym.

Just thought I'd throw this out there because today I had one of the best days I've had in the gym in a long, long time...and I was fckn pissed and it paid off, lol!

fuckin right. controlled aggresion = good lifts.

i picture stomping kittens and burning down hospitals in my head when i bench!!!

seriously though, i agree. controlling and channeling "anger" while lifting is fantastic...

gotta watch out so you dont psych yourself up too much tho. if you do it too often you will drain yourself mentally and possibly burn out.

when im in the gym i try to avoid going to failure and try to make every rep as smooth as a possible. i have my best workouts when im "mentally cruising" thru the workouts.

of course you have to challenge yourself and progressively try to lift heavier weights (cant train like a pussy).

i hope you guys understand what i mean.

I understand completely...you can't have those balls to the wall type workouts every single time you go to the gym...that's the quickest recipe for injury or burnout city. But the "fanatic" workouts are a lot of fun when you do get the chance for one.
I also agree about the going to failure thing...this is something that's taken a while for me to understand and getover. Just like it can be tempting to train for hours on end (especially when you first start out) it's just as tempting to take every set to failure...and I know and understand these days how stupid that is.

One thing I've really started to finally get a grasp on and understand more is how much simple adequate and controlled stimulation coupled with a perfect diet is such a big key. I know we all here all the time, diet is everything, but a lot of the time this is hard to get a firm grip on and even harder to understand perfect training style.

BTW, you know anything about the band "Susperia"...I just discovered these guys this wk...Norwegian band, darkish and extremely hard musically, vocals semi-hard...not as hard as like "Nile" or "Zao."

Susperia is ok, not my personal favourite, but good for heavy benching or squatting, esp. the song "chemistry" lol.

This past weekend i've been "baby sitting" my 8-year old little sister since mom went to funeral up north. I just don't get where these kids get their energy from, it's like from 08-23.00 super sustained hyper energy.

On Friday i took her and my little bro to a local theme park, here in Helsinki and Jesus Christ! The prices have gone up like 350% since i was there last time. They dragged me to ALL the machines, even though they know i'm scared shitless of heights. One machine called "panorama" is just this huge glass dome that goes up up up and stays there forever. Few times i was saved by the bell, because i didn't fit in the machines they were like "sir, can't you close the security bars?" and i was like: sure I'll pull in my chest it's not like i need air anyways."

Well, i had a good time anyway, except when we went to this "labyrinth" that you have to find a way out of and it was getting boring so, i thought i had founded a shortcut, WRONG! I smacked my forehead to this security glass and broke it, thankfully only my brother saw it so i don't have to pay up. I suppose if that had happened over there i could sue them for big bucks.

Last night i was watching the original Miami Vice, which I'm a huge fan of and allways have been, it's like Crockett and Tubbs could beat the shit out of any 300 lbs cage fighter. The movie that they made with Jamie Fox and Colin Farrell gave me diarrhea, that was BAD and not in a good way...

As you may know, our boy Luv2Hurt is competing this weekend.  He has posted progress pics in the "Contest Dieting" thread on the FBB board.  He's a great contributor to the FBB board, so I started a good luck thread for him this morning.  We all KNOW he will kick ass, but please stop by and wish him the best of luck if you get a chance.

This is why i'm done with powerlifting. 7 years of aggressive training with ammonia caps will get you injured and over trained very quickly. i've got way too many nagging injuries for my age but all in all it's worth it. i still get fired up before a good heavy set of DB rows or incline presses but the days of getting pissed and snorting ammonia caps are over.

I just got back from south dakota for opening weekend of pheasent hunting. we had a BLAST! our group of 12 limited out within 4 hours all 3 days. if you guys like to bird hunt you need to check out pheasent hunting. i've hunted everything in this country and i'd say pheasent hunting is the most intense and by far the most fun you could have hunting. weather was pretty good and the country side is beautiful, i'll post some pics when i have time, i'm playing catch up at work right now.

i hope everyone stayed safe and has been training well.

Also a big GOOD LUCK to Luv, show them how it's done!

I had just come off a light supplementation program 7 weeks prior and should have known better.

Her oldest brother is 130 pounds ripped to the bone and will eat 4 plates like it's nothing, then 2 hours later he will be looking in the fridge. even my girl puts away more food than me and she hasn't gained a pound in 10 years.

Yeah, i think there is a slight jealousy factor.

when she catches me looking she's says "she cute? want me to get number for you?"...she's being sarcastic but it makes me laugh. she catches me staring at her younger sister alot, man she has a rack for a 100 pound viet but my lady isn't far behind and has a much better lower half.

one of her friends dresses very slutty and my girl asked "you want me dress like that?" i said SURE! that didn't go over well, my girl doesn't own anything that goes above the knee, very conservative. but at home, she lets those legs show quite nicely... ;D

she's been hitting lunges and the stairmaster like crazy, these women respond to leg training very quickly. i can see and feel improvements in only a little over a month.

On the third one it would be minus all the extra stuff, just the skull.
Which ever one, it will have one of the 2 written above it.

Nope, I can hardly write...sometimes I can't read my own handwriting, I've gotten way too dependant on a keyboard for everything.

It's Greek and I'll prob go with this one έρπω θάνατος which loosely translate into "creeping death" but in Greek it refers to the vengeful right hand of God...at least I think so, lol! My Greek isn't as good as it used to be, but I'll make sure it's what I want before I do it.

Not that anyone here cares but it's kind of cool to me.

Body weight right now is right at 200lbs and my strength in the gym is now right where it was this past winter/spring when I weighed 230...a little stronger on some lifts.

I've always said that I don't worry about actual numbers in terms of what weight I'm using, and I don't, the actual growth and development is more important to me...but even so, it is still kind of cool IMO.

Now the key is trying to improve on this without getting too stupid and letting my bf get too high as I try to get bigger and better...heaven help me, the constant struggle within, lol!

Arnold, you are truly a baby.

I never thought you were 200lbs.

It's good you're low BF%, though.

(I sense "new drama" in the locker room.)

haha, i thought about that, but in the translation the word death actually translates into "deth" so it's not a total infraction, lol! I'm actually leaning towards the first one...you can't see it as well in the pic though. And yes, my back is champion!

I was 230+ this spring but shouldn't have gone a lb over 220 in retrospect...if it helps I'm hardly 5'8".
Anyway, dieted down this summer and dropped to right at 188. Since then I've been trying to be very carefull about my weight gain this year...very very carefull. Still haven't gone full blown with the "happy" stuff since then, but will before too long. Anyway, at this moment at 200lbs arms and legs are still veiny, face not bloated out, so things are looking positive so far IMO. I'll start dieting sometime in January again, this time from a lighter starting point, but that should ensure that I don't have to drop down a slow as this year.

Div, never doubt Arnold jr. Entrust your faith and forever be blessed!

Here's what I would do if you're looking for a tattoo. I'd look around to guys at the gym with nice tats & ask them who did them. I'd then go to the guys shop & talk to the artist. Most are pretty cool & are willing to help you with drawings & such.

Or if you ever make your way to Michigan I'll take you to my friend who's done all mine.

Yeah, the beast I train with some times has several cool ones, he'll know where to go and get it done.


On another note, wrenched the shit out of my back tonight doing squats...last set when i was taking it off the rack. I squat barefoot usually and always if the weight is heavy, so when I do the bar has got to be just a little lower so I can get it off, otherwise I have to step up on my toes to get it off which is annoying. Anyway, had the bar to high and had to go up on my toes a bit to get it off...when I did kind of jerked to the right and the bar went on their crooked and made my back twist with the weight on it which tweaked something pretty good...went ahead and did one rep but could tell that I was about to regret it if I did another so I just racked it...I can tell from my one previous back injury that if I'm not very carefull for the next little bit, that this could turn into a big problem...shit is throbbing right now! What really sucked is I was feeling really good and was looking for a great set...oh well, next time.

Be careful once your back is fucked up it tends to stay fucked up. Shit I've got two herniated discs & one that's deterorated (one of the reasons I don't squat without a Smith Machine or deadlift over 250 lbs anymore).

Man, I have had back issues since I started training seriously. For starters, was in a bad accident at 19 and ever since then have to be very careful with all lifts. Never could leg press after that because of the rotation on my hips would jack my back up.

Then, early in my lifting career, had the bar loaded doing deads off the floor sumo style. Guy comes up from behind and says something to me as I have the bar at my knees. I twist my head as he startled me and tweaked my back bad. Dropped the weight and glared at him that his head should have been under those 45 lbs plates! Bastard, never the same since and that was about 15 years ago.

This is not a shot at you, but if i had to squat with a smith or stop doing heavy deads, I would be devastated...those are 2 of my favorite lifts...nothing gets me amped like squats and deads.

I hurt my back similar to this about 3-4yrs ago, but that time I was a little dumber. I hurt it going too heavy on deads and just told myself to ignore the pain, lol...I know idiotic. Put up with the pain for a few wks but it got worse and worse. Then one day went in for legs, started with front squats...on my first warm up set of 135 I went down and stayed down. rolled the bar down over my head and walked out of the gym hunched over...sat in the parking lot for an hour because I couldn't drive my car...I couldn't push the clutch cause it set my back on fire...I knew that was bad. I ended up having to call my mother and have her take me to the doctor that moment. haha, yeah I know, mamas boy, lol! Anyway, ends up I had twisted a vertebra in my back, 3rd one on the right from the bottom. Doc said it would be 6 months before I did deads or squats again and even then he said it would be very light at best. Well after serious rehab on my back, chiropractor, which I now have a lot of faith in, I was back to full blown leg and back training in 12 wks...doc said he'd never seen anyone heal form that so fast. Did the "stuff' I was on help with this? maybe, couldn't have hurt IMO.

I understand & I don't think of it a shot at me. I still love deadlifts I just don't go much over my bodyweight anymore - I'm too petrified of really fucking my back up. I just keep the weight between 200-250 & focus on good form & keeping the reps smooth. I also don't do regular squats without the Smith machine because of hip problems. I know it kind of sucks but I've learned to adapt over the years. Mostly with lighter weights & higher reps. Hey, you gotta do what you gotta do.

Hey bro, you're preaching to the choir on this one. I've got bone spurs all over my left shoulder, so I have to be a little carefull about chest and shoulder lifts. Most things don't bother it all that much, but no way can I flat bench every wk any more...incline no problem, go figure. I can still go as heavy as I want on both body parts but flat bench is only every other wk or every 3 depending on how it's feeling and on shoulder press usually DB but will do smith press now and then...on the straight bar, taking it off the rack which is as you know slightly behind your head, this rips my shoulder apart.

You guys are making my back hurt!

i injured my lower back years ago and to this day i can feel exactly how much i can push it on squats and deadlifts. some of my heavy deadlift days i could feel it pulsing and i'd back off or drop the amount of weight on the bar. same thing with squats, i'd be getting ready for my final heavy triple and i could feel it pulsing so i'd take a plate off or just move to the next exercise.

lucky for me i have yet to re-injure my back and i can feel when i'm pushing myself too much so i'll back down. i don't think i have a serious problem but who knows 10+ years from now? that's what bothers me the most.

Post knee surgery i've been really hammering away at high rep deadlifts and squats. 30+ rep range and DAMN i'm actually growing alot. i'm slowly adding weight but my surgeon wants me to keep it "sane" until january.

Backs --
I think Rim has a smart idea myself..

I think repetive stress of my work, and also chemical exposure contributed.
But the first bad sharp flare I had in my early 20s was after heavy deads.

These days the problem is in the exact same spot, but it can last for 3 days at a crack severe.
I can allwasy feel it, even thru SchII painkiller that would stop many peoples breathing.

Yur back is nothing to mess with. Take care of it, I need drop to a knee/ lunge every morning for about a hour after I get up to even get anything out the bottom of the fridge.

Steroids had nothing to do with it, it was hurt long before I ever used them, but they enabled me to run it into the ground further than I would have. That money also put me in a pretty good spot though.
Everything is tradeoffs in life.

The association has some guys over right now. They're in there with the auger as I type. I went out & got some more bleach & once they're done I'm going to nuke the floor.

when i lived in an apartment years ago on the first floor something similar happened to me 4 times!!! the mexicans upstairs fried food every night and dumped the grease down the drain. every time it backed up into my apartment it was grease filled water. i complained to them in person 5 times and they didn't understand a word of english(welcome to houston). even the complex staff couldn't get through to them.

so i finally had one of my spanish speaking friends talk to them. so what did they do? they poured the fucking grease over the balcony right onto my balcony. ::)

Cool, I used to live in that equipment.
Check negative and posative pressure fit by inhaling and plugging the inlets with your hands. SHould be NO leaks around facepiece, THEN block the exhaust valve and exhale to check the other direction.

I sent EVERYONE HOME FROM A 4 story Insh complex under construction on a monday because of
what I sprayed (7 gal of pure MEK thru a airless) on a saturday morning.  ;D
They all got the day off on me.  Prolly a couple hundred const workers. Big dollars lost in schedule, but that
HAVAC room had to be cleaned and that was the only solution.

They opened all the windows to clear it in Wi December, and it was cold.

.....yes, you're right, Arnold jr. is not in the best mood right now.

Arnold jr's dark motto's for the day:

Do you believe in the darkness below
Well I can summon them up
If you really want to know
As I tow the line
between bad and evil
Nothing can touch me now
True believer

Born in sin where I pledge my evil oath
Violence is golden now
Did you really want to go
As I draw the line
between bad and evil
Nothing can touch me now
True believer

True believer...
nothing can stop me now
and nothing can touch me now
True believer...

No use in praying forever shall I roam
Smoke dusted angels now
It's the only way I know
As I cross the line
between bad and evil
Nothing can touch me now
True believer

Ash to ashes, Dust to dust
all I ever wanted was power of the blood

Now look what I have done
What I have become
I'm the chosen one

Never gonna take me
Never gonna change me
Never gonna escape me now...

Do you believe there is evil in my soul
One final high is the way
That I really want to go
As I cross the line
between bad and evil
Nothing can touch me now
True believer

...and any man over 20%BF or under 200lbs should not be allowed to wear a tank top or beater. Any women over 20%bf should not be allowed to wear spandex pants in the gym.

Most importantly, all gym members should be required to wear deodorant at all times. if one wears deodorant yet still manages to smell like a steaming pot of cabbage, one should be required to carry a stick of deodorant with them in the gym at all times.

Speaking of smelling bad. I thought I was getting a cold this week & on Tuesday when I went to bed I put Vicks all over my chest. Well, I woke up feeling fine & ate breakfast & then went to the gym. After legs & cardio I was sweating like crazy & then when I got home I almost fainted when I took off my shirt - the combination of Vicks & sweat almost killed me.  :-[

$11K tax. You must have a pretty big shack there?
That'd be about a 1/2 $Mill+  Home in a prestigeous 'hood by me.

I got about 2700 sq ft and P Tax is closing in on $4k. Nice place in the country.
shit, Im sick of that! NO PROPERTY TAX IN WIFEYS COUNTRY!

I should of left the USA when I cashed out my last home and property,  No way I could sell the present one for what I paid, but the score on the old one was good.

What the hell? I went to one of those about ten years ago - basically to impress a girl & trying to get laid. It worked.

That's why i'm going! i don't feel i need to impress my girl anymore but it's something fun to do that she has never seen before.

plus those giant turkey legs are awesome! i had two of them.

I don't like to make generalizations but I seriously think that anyone under the age of 18 who goes to any kind of a gym should be forced to take a class in proper form & gym etiquette.

I agree 1000000000000%.

i was at the gym on friday training back and the local spoiled brat high school kids were there in full force. they usually don't show up on fridays but for some reason they were everywhere. there was about 6 of them working out together and they were acting like the soldiers from 300, they were grunting and calling out lines from the movie. then they would flex their 130 pound bodies in the mirror. it was horrific, one of the many times in my life i wish i had my full auto AK47 with me, i could have done society some good. these little girls were throwing weights around and smacking each other on the chest after a BRUTAL set of 60 pound BB curls. i was in awe! my 140 pound DB rows were no match for these monsters.

i seriously think we should be able to bitch slap these brats. they ruin every gym and the management won't do shit.

I understand where you're coming from with this...it's something that used to bother me a lot. But for the last little while, I've gotten to where I could care less. Sure, these kind of guys look like idiots, but hey, their just kids. As long as I can go to the gym, do my own thing without being bothered, I could care less what those clowns do.

I still stand by my proclamation that "stinky" people should be banned from the gym though! Having some day where you stink a little bit, fine, it happens. But every single time you step in the gym, start sweating just a tiny bit and smell like a rotten pile of cabbage and fish sticks, this is a problem!

Most of the time i can easily blow them off, but friday was different. they were so loud and abnoxious i honestly held myself back about 3 times from telling them to STFU. i even had my headphones on and could hear them slamming weights around and yelling. plus i use those weights for warmups sometimes and i don't wan't them all messed up, some of the DBs are bent from being thrown around. i tend to keep to myself and i don't say much to anyone at the gym but i wish the management would control these kids before someone gets hurt. i've seen these kids throw DB's 10 feet across the floor after some incline presses. if my leg gets hit by that DB, they will be talking out the side of their mouth the rest of their life.

Rim made a good point, i've seen these kids roll solo before and they are quiet little kids. it's when they are in groups that they act all stupid.

Unfortunately i was training at a LA Fitness near River Oaks, Houston. one of the most expensive parts of Houston.

Not many bodybuilders here and it's overrun by soccer moms and out of shape 50 year old men with lots of money.

they wouldn't come within 50 feet of me. the kids in this area have too much money and a lawsuit would fuck me up for a long time. the days of grabbing kids by the collar of their shirt is over.

at my powerlifting gym they would have been thrown out in less than 5 minutes.

Yeah, I get what you're saying and it is irritating to say the least. Luckily for me, the gym I train at isn't plagued with these guys...it definitely has some ass clowns, but not too many and their not in there too often.

Usually I have found with the annoying brats once you lose it on them and they stay out of your way.  I'm far from a tough guy but do not want to deal with that kid shit during MY time in the gym.  I could care less if some other people there think I'm an ass for it....F*ck them too.

Trab - that is why i don't want to get crazy with them. i'm sure they have rich fathers with enough money to slap a lawsuit on me for any stupid reason. i'm twice their size and that usually works against you in these cases.

Not to change the subject but are any of you guys into cigars? I like a good cigar about once or twice a week. I find it relaxing & for the past couple months things have been crazy so a 30-45 minute timeout is nice. Anyway, I highly recommend anthing by CAO or Gurkha - every cigar I've tried by them has been good.

I like cigars but haven't had one in a long time...prob a year or so. About 3yrs ago I built a cigar bar here in my area and the owner of the store loaded me down with some cool stuff. Most of it I gave away but I did enjoy a few of them.

Luv and Trab, I'm sure both of you can relate to this since you've both spent a good bit of time in the construction world...some of the weirdest and grossest things I've ever seen come from this world, lol!

Anyway, there is a woman who frequently delivers steel to our job sites....you don't see too many good looking women when you're in the construction field, but she's not that bad looking at all...and this is a rarity. But here's the kicker, every time she's come for a delivery, and I mean every single time, she has a huge dip in her mouth...plus the smell of it surrounds here. Oh baby, if this ain't sexy I don't know what is :-X

Man so many people smoke in construction its funny IMO.  It seems funny nowadays to see some douche smoking at work in a public type place around others.  Sometimes when I have to meet with these job foreman on a site they will pull out a smoke and start to smoke.  At that point I just walk away, I'm not gonna be around that shit.  Maybe they have learned a trick to get me to go away, start smoking LOL.  Well it works and I could care less, let em kill themselves both ways.

Another thing I was in the store and this huge, dirty, disheveled, fatass walks by me kind of close and I get hit with this stink of BO and cigarettes man gave me a headache.  Prick was probally smoking in his rusty 88 Taurus on the way in.

i got in a big mess last year on a job site, long story short, we had some construction issues on a detention pond so i went out to see WTF they messed up. the head contractor walks up to me and stands about 2 feet from me, lights a cig and blows the smoke in my face, this guy didn't like the fact i was out there telling him what he was doing wrong. so i slapped the cig out of his hand, you should have seen the look on his face, fucking priceless.

Most importantly, all gym members should be required to wear deodorant at all times. if one wears deodorant yet still manages to smell like a steaming pot of cabbage, one should be required to carry a stick of deodorant with them in the gym at all times.

I think all gyms should put fire hoses inside and anyone that gets called out by 2 or more people for smelling like they just crawled out of Rossie O'Donnels a-hole should be hosed down for a period determined necessary to cleanse them of their heinous stench.

Haha, tell me about it.  I used to get paddled by the principle at least twice a month at my junior high.  I was in a private school at the time and this guy had this huge paddle with the holes drilled into it to reduce air friction when he was bringing it's fury down on your ass.  I think the big problem with kids today is that people don't control their kids, they don't punish them.  Punishment for a kid these days is being sent to his room, but the problem is that he's got a 50" plasma with an x-box and computer with high speed internet, wow what punishment.

When I was a kid my grandfather used to make me go pick out a switch from the bushes so he could beat the sh*t out of me with it.  If I came back with a switch that was too small, he'd make me go get a thicker one heh.
haha, this post brought back some memories, lol!

It was not uncommon for me to get paddled when I was in school, especially the good ole elementary days. But believe it or not I actually got paddled my senior year in high school the last wk of school, lol!

I got in a fight in the cafeteria and they took me and the other guy to the principles office. Now me and the principle were buddies because he was the head football coach before he became principle and he was just gong to let the whole thing slide. But oh no, one of the assistant principles hated my guts. She was ecstatic that she finally had me in there for something and she told the SRO that I should be arrested, lol! So the principle sent her out and said to me, "look, I've got to do something to calm this bitch down, how about detention for the rest of the wk?" I just said you got to be kidding me, detention the last wk of school, let alone my senior year! He said, well option 2 you can take a paddling. So yeah, I just went ahead and took the 3 licks. he beat the shit out of me with that thing. Like I said, we were kind of buddies and after the first lick I turned my head and looked at him and rolled my eyes...after that he laughed and said "oh this is funny?" and then he tore my ass up with the 2nd two, lol!

I love stair photos of chicks  :P

If our HS principle or the vice had tried anything like that, they'd of got buried  ;D
THe VP was a big guy, but that wouldn't of flew. THe kids practically RAN our school. It just opened
and it was the 1970's and we pretty much got away with anything.

We had a lot of freedom, unbelievable by todays standards. It was beyond control.
Picture animal house HS but slightly detuned.

I'd prolly been better off to have quit and worked Full time for what I got out of it. No joke.

Beer

Football/Baseball
Fighting

Yup, ours was crazy back in 76-79. They pretty much got used to the idea kids were gona smoke pot IN the school and just tried to sort of limit it. Plenty of alcohol to.
18yr old drinking age limit and not really enforced.

My class literly gave a new teacher a nervous breakdown, she totally cracked up and had to quit mid year.
You wouldnt believe the stuff 15-18 yr old guys got away with.
One teacher would sit in the back of the class to avoid flying objects. ;D

A outright ZOO. Great football team though! And they mostly partied hardy too.
We'd have like 15 1/2 barrel of beer parties out at farm sheds and gravel pits. The cops wouldnt even bust them up!
They'd just pull in and have a look see and make sure it wasn't too out of hand.
Even the cops didnt bust you for grass back then. They'd turn you loose with a open bottle of whiskey and a bong in a car if the driver was Ok.

Things have changed a little.

OK back already but it did not take long to do this, but it hurt like hell!

Was talking with my best friend this morning and it came up that I had legs to do today. We got to talking and just for fun I said pick a weight and reps you want and I'll get it...she said 405 for 8...I said come on are you serious, you can do better then that, because that ain't that big of a deal...I said 500 for 8 now that would be a big deal for me. Then she said, OK screw that, 150lbs for 200reps...I just laughed and she said, "oh no, you said I could pick and I'm dead serious!" I said I didn't think this was even remotely possible but I'd shoot for as many as I could get...needless to say I did not win the bet.

Here's how it went:

Did my calves first because I knew I wouldn't do any thing after the squats.

Warmed up with 4 sets of 20 single leg ext...very light weight.

Did 2 sets of moderate weight leg ext both legs sets of 15

Squats:

2 sets just the bar for 20
2 set 135 for 15
1 set of 225 for 15...did all this just to get my legs really loose and ready.

OK, the money set: 150lbs 110 reps...hardest thing I've ever done in my life and my legs feel like they are going to fall off. At rep number 47 it really really started to hurt, so I stopped for 5sec and just stood there...at around 80something did this again....and then finished off with 110. Didn't throw up but felt like I would...could hardly walk when it was over. Weird thing is my hamstrings hurt worse then my quads, lol!

Anyway, I'm happy with 110 reps. Obviously 150lbs on squats is nothing but that many reps, yeah, it's a major bitch.

Don't worry, this is not something I'm going to make a habit of...it was just for fun and it will be back to normal leg training from now on.

BTW, any takers on beating 110 reps with 150lbs? Will go with the honour system here.

Yeah, very hard...I think 500 for 8 would have been easier then this...although I don't think I could get that either right now...close but not quite.

The biggest thing I don't like about DB lunges is that I can't go heavy enough to get a good feel in my legs. For instance, If I grab a heavy pair of DB's my arms will tire out way before my legs do.

Straps....

Walked with 80's and had no problem. I force myself to keep my torso upright and step far enough that my ham touches my calf.

 My gym gets too crowded to try and manuver a barbell around. I would have to be like Ronnie and do them down the street.

Try working on your grip - that'll help a lot. One of my biggest problems since getting hurt in September has been getting my grip strength back. I'm still struggling with it now (almost three months now). A week or two ago I was doing deadlifts & I couldn't use over 225 & do more then three or four reps because I was losing my grip. It's slowly getting better but it still comes & goes.

You may want to try these: www.getgrippers.com (before my injury I was using the 200lb ones - now I'm back to the 150's).

K Arnie I will try this out Friday as it is my leg day..I have to admit I will probably puke, but hell it's worth it. I remember a buddy of mine and I put 225 on the bar and went back and forth till we both fell. He would go and stop only when he couldn't get another rep in, then I would go, same thing. We did this exchange 5 times...I rolled out of the gym..got to my car and called my fiance to come pick me up as I could not push the clutch in on my car...I hurt for about 4 days straight...even got that wicked muscle spasam in the middle of the night..

A couple times when i used to train at the gym that was about half a mile away I'd do some crazy shit for legs (100 reps sets & things like that) & then I'd throw in 20-30 minutes of cardio for good measure. However, I'd always seem to forget that I'd walk. Well by the time I'd get home I'd be crawling up the stairs to my apartment.

The best part is bro, we are all suckers for punishment and want to see how much more abuse our bodies can take..so we do it again or try for something just a little more of the hook than the last time.

Fitness training gets you the body... hardcore lifting gets you noticed..

Stories like that make me wish I still had training partners (my wife doesn't count). It's hard to go too crazy by yourself. Man years ago I used to train with these guys & we do crazy 150-200 rep sets of curls & other stuff. Painful but fun in a sick way.

Ya, but look at it on the bright side, the training partners may come and go...but the weights will always be there to challenge you. Training heavy was something I used to enjoy, made me strut around like a proud peacock, but as I have got older, wiser and a little less worried about impressing people I have changed my body into what I have always wanted it to be and with less injuries to go along with it.

But hey Rim if your ever in Canada..let me know I'd be glad to train with ya...

Very true but it's sometimes hard to push yourself when training alone. It always helps tohave someone calling you a pussy while to push through a few more reps?

Where in Canada do you live?

 My gym gets too crowded to try and manuver a barbell around. I would have to be like Ronnie and do them down the street.
Luckily for me, I can go out into the back parking lot...if not, there is an area that's pretty open in side, and people generally stay out of your way...I've never had a problem.

Plus, on the DB lunges, honestly and I don't say this because I'm some huge beast, even if the grip thing wasn't an issue, the weight is just not heavy enough to get what I need out of these.

For a long time I did what I would consider light weight for lunges and yeah they did do some good...but it doesn't compare to heavy weight lunges...these things kick your ass and really get in there deep IMO. A set or 2 of 135 to get loose, and the form down and then a set or 2 at 185 and 225 is about perfect for me...thought about trying 275 but I know right now this would be way too much and I'd prob only get a few reps. One of my training partners, the beast I've told you all about, he puts up 275 and flies with this weight...he is truly a freak in every sense of the word!

Hell no. Good work though.

Oh come on Rim, you know you need this. ;)

You know it would have been really cool to get 200 reps with this, but I think that is prob imposable...honestly, I was shocked that I was even able to get 100, let alone 110 out of this...funny what a little motivation will do for you, lol! Besides, if I had gotten 200 reps, no one would have believed me any way...I wouldn't have believed it lol!

The mental fortitude needed to push around heavy weights is the key to true intensity. Too many trainees do not understand what it takes mentally to push thru that point.

Now as far as the cold, you all know it is snow bird season down here in the desert so pack up and head on down! Seriously, anyone coming to Az, will hook you up at any gym you want. Will be shoveling tons of sunshine down here for a while  8)

So sorry to hear that...

You are welcome to become Az's newest snow birds! Just make sure your wife has has blue hair, you take up two lanes when you drive your RV down the road and keep your speed under 55 on the freeways. You will fit in nicely....

Well the blue hair thing is easy as you see tons of people in Toronto with that style, usually in a mohawk. Two lanes, can I do that in my hummer instead.....and I'll have to drive backwards to do 55. But as far as coming down there, would love to come and see the sun devils play. Well and the college chicks ain't bad down there either. How are the gyms down there at least air conditioned I would imagine?

No, not punk rock blue hair, senior citizen blue hairs! Lots of Hummers so you are good there and driving backwards is about how well most drive here anyway.

As for my DEVILS, two home games left. Turkey Day and U of A Kitty Cats week after. Then off to the Rose Bowl...Go fork em Devils! Chicks, well, yeah, PHX is silicone valley baby!

All the main gyms have air conditioning. Sure there are some hardcore gyms that have swamp coolers. No way you could train May - Oct without A/C. If you are into Fluff Gyms- LA Fitness, Lifetime, Pure Fitness. BB GYMS- GOLD's, Worlds and tons of mom and pops. I go to Lifetime until I get frustrated with the crowd and poor gym etiquette, then go over to Golds.

Fluff gyms, ya no we have Ballys pretty well the same thing..all treadmills and there biggest weight is a a 70 lbs dumbell. If you can lift that your on sauce. We got a golds a little while back, seems to be were all the wrestlers and stuff go when there in town...used to be a gym named Monsters..

As far as the Silicone....ain't all that bad at least you know when you slap it, it goes back into place...and doesn't fall down were there armpit is when they lie on there back.

Cheerleaders down there all well put together though, saw a couple of games and there are some fine looking women down there.

Imagine doing Arnie Jr's routine in the hardcore gyms in the summer....nothing to worry about as far as puking...just have to be careful you don't die. Hardcore gyms is were it is at.

Thats funny you say that, I used to live in Windsor...for about 4 years..loved going across the border,

The only time I've been to Canada was to Windsor ~ just to say I was in Canada  ::)

The only thing I recall was seeing a guy peeing on the side of a building (liquor store). 
I think we were lost in a "not-so-nice" part of town  :-\

Honestly, my Lifetime has DB up to 140. Half the time they are broken though because someone probably was trying to lift too much and dropped them.

With AC training is easy. I just can not recall anything like Metoflex with garage doors wide open in the middle of July! Death rate would be a bit too high I bet.

Ya you could call Windsor the scum of Ontario to be honest. Not exactly the nicest town, but that's because it was run down by the students. Alot of youngins come across the border to drink, our drinking age is 19 and yours is 21 if I'm not mistaken. So when school is in it's the place to drink.

Ya, I would not doubt there was a guy doing that, but why on the liquor store is beyond me. I wish we had our liquor and beer in our supermarkets as you guys do across the border...just makes more sense to me. But I'm not the government...so I guess my opinion is like an a hole...I just got one like everyone else.

Ya the gym I go to has dumbells that go up to the 200 lbs range....but they have another 5lbs of dust on top, there used that much. I've only seen one guy lift them and that was Greg Kovacs. It's odd to see a guy lift that heavy in our gym....very odd.

As far as AC, your heat is a bit different than ours I believe, ours is humid, were as yours is dry, am I right? The humidity is gross so we always have the AC on. By the way isn't death valley near you anyways?

Ya, but look at it on the bright side, the training partners may come and go...but the weights will always be there to challenge you. Training heavy was something I used to enjoy, made me strut around like a proud peacock, but as I have got older, wiser and a little less worried about impressing people I have changed my body into what I have always wanted it to be and with less injuries to go along with it.

I think Henry Rollins pretty much sums it up perfectly for me:

"The Iron never lies to you. You can walk outside and listen to all kinds of talk, get told that you're a god or a total bastard. The Iron will always kick you the real deal. The Iron is the great reference point, the all-knowing perspective giver. Always there like a beacon in the pitch black. I have found the Iron to be my greatest friend. It never freaks out on me, never runs. Friends may come and go. But two hundred pounds is always two hundred pounds."

Nobody knows heat & humid till they been to SE Asia. It makes S Florida Keys or the worst Mid West USA humidity seem almost pleasant.
It gets so brutal it can start to feel like hydraulic pressure. The jungle and rain forest is sweltering.

By 930am most days in Bangkok its getting worse than anything the Mid West can lay out.
Walk outside and your soaking wet in seconds.

{Rollins also began to take "large quantities" of LSD during Black Flag tours, after bassist Chuck Dukowski urged him with the words "it will help you not be such an asshole."[10]}

Dry like your head is in an oven, constant pressure during 115 degree days. Dry I can handle, humid, no way..

Death Valley is in the southern part of California, but close I guess compared to where you are at!

OK back already but it did not take long to do this, but it hurt like hell!

Was talking with my best friend this morning and it came up that I had legs to do today. We got to talking and just for fun I said pick a weight and reps you want and I'll get it...she said 405 for 8...I said come on are you serious, you can do better then that, because that ain't that big of a deal...I said 500 for 8 now that would be a big deal for me. Then she said, OK screw that, 150lbs for 200reps...I just laughed and she said, "oh no, you said I could pick and I'm dead serious!" I said I didn't think this was even remotely possible but I'd shoot for as many as I could get...needless to say I did not win the bet.

Here's how it went:

Did my calves first because I knew I wouldn't do any thing after the squats.

Warmed up with 4 sets of 20 single leg ext...very light weight.

Did 2 sets of moderate weight leg ext both legs sets of 15

Squats:

2 sets just the bar for 20
2 set 135 for 15
1 set of 225 for 15...did all this just to get my legs really loose and ready.

OK, the money set: 150lbs 110 reps...hardest thing I've ever done in my life and my legs feel like they are going to fall off. At rep number 47 it really really started to hurt, so I stopped for 5sec and just stood there...at around 80something did this again....and then finished off with 110. Didn't throw up but felt like I would...could hardly walk when it was over. Weird thing is my hamstrings hurt worse then my quads, lol!

Anyway, I'm happy with 110 reps. Obviously 150lbs on squats is nothing but that many reps, yeah, it's a major bitch.

Don't worry, this is not something I'm going to make a habit of...it was just for fun and it will be back to normal leg training from now on.

BTW, any takers on beating 110 reps with 150lbs? Will go with the honour system here.


Okay Arnie, I'm never listening to you again, I got to 85 reps and dropped the weight to the floor, I myself was not far behind it. I'm sitting in my chair at work and my legs are so pumped that I feel like I have 2 tree trunks under my desk. I have no intrest in getting up from my desk anytime soon. The worst part is....I have to go a flight of about 25 stairs to go the washroom, so needless to say I sure am holding it longer, but after saying all that....I will do it again, you have set a mark that I must accomplish now.

Thanks.LOL

Hey, I told you it was absolute hell...hardest thing you've ever done in the gym wasn't it?

How did it feel over all? Did the weight ever actually get heavy? When I did it the weight never got heavy, that was never the problem...just the unbelievable burning was what was the worst...that and just being absolutely worn out and breathing like you just sprinted 700yds at full speed, lol! And you're right, best leg pump ever.

Good news for you, if you're like me, the next 2 days, your legs will be in big time pain, ,lol!

I did back this afternoon and did some t-bar rows...getting that crap up off the ground was pretty tough considering how sore my legs were...but what can you do...we can bitch and moan...and yeah it does hurt, but there is undoubtedly a "sick" satisfaction with all that IMO.

BTW, if anyone can actually get 200reps with this, I'll send trab to your house and he'll blow you!!!!!!!

Actually, this made it a bit harder. You know that drol can cause a really tight feeling in your lower back due to the water/bloat and on top of that the insane pumps it causes...and when you get into extreme high reps, I don't care how good your form is, your lower back is going to feel it...so multiply this x100 w/drol.

Didn't seem to effect the calves too much...at least not for me...the whole quad is sore, but the bottom portion is the most. And hams are pretty tight and sore, but the brunt of the soreness seems to be on the inside portion.

Besides the fitness chick last week, ya it was the hardest thing in the gym I have ever done...

The leg pump was insane, I would tend to agree I felt like I went from here to Detroit in an all sprint, I'm sure I was sucking the paint off the walls for how hard I was breathing. OMG it was intense, I just cam from upstairs and almost fell down the last 10 stairs...good god man...yes I'm not looking forwards to the pain for the next few days, but at the end when I see the growth I will undoubtedly do it again...maybe for 199 reps...I really don't need Trab on his knees for me...

As far as that "sick" feeling I'm pretty sure it was the pasta from the morning I ate before I went..but dude we all go nuts in our old ages...just some like to keep going. IMO that I have this urge to do it again next week...just to see if I can puke this time...sad huh?

In the past any dbol or drol I've used was always UGL...these days though AJ is 100% pharma all the way...so thought I'd give that a go and see if things went smoother.

Even so, I guess I'll never know how well it works since Arnold jr. does not use any form of AAS or any other performance enhancing item...just lots of whey powder, fish oil.

Did this about 4yrs ago, not as hardcore as this squat thing, but it hurt.

*Find some DB that you can press on the incline for 10reps, not to failure but a few reps short of failure.

*Rest for 30sec and repeat. Repeat until you absolutely fail on 10 reps or at 9 or so.

*Drop down in weight but make sure you can get 8-10 reps.

*Do this until you have completed 10 full sets of incline DB press.

*Chest training over.

I know about a half dozen guys who have tournaments about every other week (20-50 people per tournament). I try to get into one about once a month. I've only finished in the money once - but I usually make it back in the side/cash games. Even when I don't finish in the money I usually make a respectable showing (top 25%).

I learned a new card game this weekend - HORSE. Interesting game(s). Can make some cash if you're good enough.

Depends on what accompanies the cheese?? Crackers = Cheddar, Sandwhiches = Provolone

Been getting into cards lately as well....hard not to pull an all nighter on line!!

Serious question...not trying to be a jackass: what made you decide to ask this question?

Answer to your question, just plain Cheddar...a big fat ass block of it though!

I just made two badass grilled cheese sandwich's this weekend (each had bacon on it & one had munster & the other pepperjack). I couldn't decide which one was better as they were both amazing. I'm also feeling a lot better so I'm in a twisted mood I guess.

How about 250reps with 25lbs on the dumbbell press.  ;D

How about 250reps with 25lbs on the dumbbell press.  ;D
hahaha, yeah, that would be pretty champion, lol!

Well, kept it pretty basic tonight:
Warm up for a good 15min...takes me longer on shoulders to warm up then any other body part.

BB press: 135lbs 3x15, 225lbs 10, 225lbs 9, 275lbs, only 4 reps should have been able to get at least 6 or so, but on the 4th one I went down a bit too far and my elbows buckled in.

Seated DB laterals: 25lbs 1x10, 30lbs 1x8 35lbs 1x8

Reverse pec dek: 120lbs 1x10, 140lbs 1x8, 150lbs, 1x7

Reverse BB shrugs: 2plates 1x10, 3plates 1x8

BB shrugs: 3 plates 1x12, 4plates 2x8

Not the best shoulder day, not the worst either. I haven't done my lateral raises seated in a while but it does make it a good bit harder...you sure can't go as heavy, but they do work very well IMO

On the reverse pec dek, not my favorite rear delt lift, but it's a nice mix up...I prefer just regular bent-over-db or bent-over cable's.

One thing that really irritates me is the shoulder press. I've been struggling with these for a long time...shoulders in terms of strength are my weakest body part by far. Doesn't make a lot of sense since size wise they are not all that bad, meaning I wouldn't consider them my most lagging body part. Anyway, I can not get past the weight I use on BB press to save my life...same with DB press. I can press the 100lb DB's fairly comfortably but I never go over that...just doesn't feel right. It just concerns me that something isn't right, because I shouldn't be stuck at the same poundage for so long IMO.

Now that guy I lift with sometimes, he keeps going up on the press...granted, he's a good 30lbs heavier then me, but shit, 365 for 8 on the BB press, that's man weight!

I don't care for them seated. I like to do them one arm at a time with lighter weights. I can feel them a little more & IMO the muscle works harder. You also don't find yourself using momentum as much.

Arnold, you are wearing yourself out before you get to the man weights.

try this...

135 - 3 sets of 8
185 - 1 set of 5
225 - 1 set of 5
275 - 1 set to failure
295 - same

you are exhausting your muscles before you put the weight on there. i have the same problem. i never go over 5 reps until my "working sets".

just a suggestion...

I actually did dumbbell presses for the first time since my injury. Felt pretty good but man I still don't trust myself with a dumbbell over 50lbs. I've still got some numbness & I had to lose my grip.

Yeah, I understand what you're saying...but shoulder press is the only lift that I do that much "warm up" sets for...it takes forever for me to get comfortable on military press.

Sometimes I'll do my laterals first, and this does help a good deal. Of course then you are a little more tired once you start pressing, but at least you're not doing 75 warm up sets.

I have found on my first excersise it is important to work up slow, but Im  a little older than most you guys.  This warms up the joints and tendons for the heavier weight. Yes might not get the biggest top set but you will still be exhausting the muscle.  I alway7s get a kick when I see a guy start their first or secong set with a heavy weight and no warm up sets.

See the thing is Overload trains mainly for power, I think.  From what I have found in BB it is not really all about the weight.  But I still sometimes will do a set or two thats a 5-6 rep max, but not every work out, most of the sets i do now are in the 10-15 range, dont get me wrong when I say lighter does not mean light, at least for me LOL.

All good points...especially on the warming up stuff.

The only time I ever hurt my shoulder lifting was when I was younger and first got into this whole thing in a big way. Walked in the gym straight to the BB military press, started right into my working sets...no warm up. ON the 2nd or 3rd rep (can't remember exactly) my shoulder popped and I was down for the count. Man, I was such an idiot back then, lol!

As for the stuff you mentioned about rep range. I've stayed in the 10-15 range for the last several years, that is until this past year when I started taking advice from Dave. Now, I do all my working sets in the 4-8 range and so far, no complaints at all about this. Since back to bulking which started late August, I haven't grown this well since back when I first started lifting. I know it's not just the new rep range scheme, but a combo of several things...but the rep range is part of the whole scheme in general.

Last off, I really do try to not worry about what the weight I'm using is...but hey, like everyone, I like to see the weights I'm using going up. After all, L2H, dont' you and I have a friendly little contest of our own going on, lol! Will Arnold jr. be able to defeat the freak known as L2H?

 ;D  Yes we do my friend.  In about 2 months I will start my heavy duty training and can feel its gonna be good.  I went and visited my friends who I mentioned were animals, the one dude I referd to as the Bear.  Anyhow they are training and PT'ing at this Fitness 19 place.  Its funny I went in there and the place is full of your typical fitness people, Bear comes walking out of the back room, the dude is a monster, reminds me of the old bulked up Lee Priest, the ridiculous 270 lb at 5'4" one!  This guy should get into PL he does do bench meets, but he was adding up his lifts and the dude's total is I bet in the 2,200-2,400 range.

My point is if I train some with this guy I know it will give me the confidence to start pushing my weights up too!  Thats where you make some nice progress, training for a period with someone substantially stronger than you.

On another note, training music. Recently I have rediscovered 2 very cool groups to train to and have been listening to their best IMO albums quite a bit.

The first is Led Zeppelin II, their second album is their best IMO and could probally be considered one of the all time best rock albums.  This thing is full of rocking songs really none are bad.

Second, Rush's 2112, Another rocking classic, with the lead song broken up into about 4 sections and like 17 min long, parts will really motivate you to train your ass off.

Man, you just brought me back to my high school days! I loved older rock when I was younger and RUSH was my favorite. You either love Geddy's voice or hate them but great musicians they are. Saw them in concert over a dozen times and some just to see Neil Pert drum solos....wow, now I am going over to I Tunes for some downloading.

I agree but in my layout there are 5 warm up sets. i'm simply removing the high rep warm up sets and having him do 5 slow reps, which is plenty for warm ups. judging by his strength on his original post i would bet money he would probably get 10-12 reps with 275 and 6-8 with 295 following my layout, which is perfect for growth. strength training is in the 1-5 rep range.

when i started doing my workouts in the style i laid out i made major strength and size gains. everytime i gain strength, i grow.

i'm a very firm believer in proper warm up sets, but i prefer more sets and less reps for warmups.

So today marked exactly 1wk since the insanity squat day...so yep, today was leg day.

i started my warm up and immediately could tell I was not fully recovered from last wk. So ended up doing a last minute revision of what I had planned. Ended up doing less then I had planned, but it still went well.

I love all out war lifting, but you can't do it every time...apparently, lol!

Happy Thanksgiving guys!

You know it Rip...right back atcha. make sure those pants get "extra" tight this wk end, lol!

U too Rip and we are still awaiting our locker room posters!!  ;D

Yeah agreed...what's the deal ripster? No decent locker room is complete without a poster or two ;)

I saw 2 of the most awesome things at the gym today...2 guys who stood out in all those ways we love so much.

Guy 1: about 6'2" prob about 180...doing flat BB bench. Weight used, 315lbs for about 5 or 6 reps...if "reps" are what you call them. His arms were kind of long, so when he lifted it off the rack, the bar was several inches above the set point...OK, so he then would proceed to bench, but the bar only came down to where it was originally sitting before he had it racked...about a 4-5inch rep. I honestly doubt this guy could have benched 200lbs with a full range of motion but apparently he felt pretty good about his form.

Guy 2: this guy wins biggest douche outfit of the year award. Everything he had on was Under Armour. Under Armour shirt, pants, head thing, gloves, wrist wraps, and elbow wraps...and to top it off, an Under Armour towell tucked in his pants. The guy was probably about 170lbs, but if he took all the Under Armour stuff off of his arms, he'd have been about 155. What made it even better was the die hard, hard core look he had the entire time. He did 90lb DB military press where the DB's never even reached the top of his head on the way down...but he turned them inward on each rep...sort of a half ass 2inch rep Arnold press, lol. After this, sternum crusher bench press with 135lbs, followed by 80lb reverse curls that were really just a crazy hybrid of front raises, clean and jerks, and hard core hip thrust.

Anyway, these 2 guys absolutely made my day!!!

Funny my gym is full of them guys.  Most of them strut around in tank tops too.  Some will even wear a beenie with their tank top.....now that is very hardcore.  One clown Had a beenie with a huge skull and crossbones that was big as his face, it was very subtle that he is indeed hardcore and probally pretty tuff too.

Come one Luv, if you don't wear a tank top, then you can't be hardcore...the tank top is what makes you hardcore and nothing else.

...and just so you know, I've got a t-shirt, an Xtra tight t-shirt...you know, the kind that's skin tight and the sleeves look like they're cutting into the muscle on your arms. Anyway, it's one of the old original House of pain t's, it's got a skull on the back of it and around it, it says "Get Big or Die!" And no, I've never once worn this thing to the gym, I bought it at a show several years back just because I liked it, but seems like a pretty stupid thing to wear in public, lol! True, I do have a few shirts that probably walk right on the edge of the line as to what some of you would or would not wear in the gym or in public, but that one I just described is just too much.

THis is why I quit going to gyms long ago. Worse, you need to wait to get equipment while these clowns use it.
(You left out their way too heavy "Warm up sets  ;D" leading to thier "Workin sets  ;D"

Its kind of a chest bounce assisted row thing-E for  the "spotter". Thats if you could call him that.

Also, the crampt quarters w/ these dummies almost dropping plate on your feet is just not for me.

Also, the crampt quarters w/ these dummies almost dropping plate on your feet is just not for me.

THIS is what makes me want to build a home gym.

there have been many times that some douche dropped a plate or DB about 3 inches from my foot. my training partners and i don't seem to have a problem removing plates and reracking them, but all the 150 pound guys have to drop them on the ground like in branch warrens DVD. then you have all the high school kids doing assited 1/8th reps with the 100 pound DB's on flat bench and they throw the DB's 3 feet and almost take out half the gym.

i was doing incline DB bench last week and this kid comes up and stands 2 feet from me and does his curls. i asked him nicely to move so i could do my presses. fucker takes one step over and continues. so i just popped the DB's back and almost knocked him over. WTF? does this make me an asshole? i don't really care.

i'm going to start making the hour drive to my powerlifting gym again. we actually kick members out for shit like this.

Steel Toe boots for just that reason when I had to use these circus gyms.
The girls are THE ONLY good excuse to go there.

ALso, when benching, theres the constant danger of some total dumass walking by and  bumping the bar end.
I see them get way too close often, grabbing plate off the racks etc.

I feel your pain. i live in a 1100 s.f. apartment by my work right now. but it beats the 1.5 hour drive from my grandparents old house in the country where i stay on the weekends.

i'm going to build a house next year hopefully but nothing major.

Shit, my girl has a 2100 s.f. house to herself and all 3 closets are filled to the gills with clothes. it's unreal, half the shit she has never worn...lol

Come one Luv, if you don't wear a tank top, then you can't be hardcore...the tank top is what makes you hardcore and nothing else.

...and just so you know, I've got a t-shirt, an Xtra tight t-shirt...you know, the kind that's skin tight and the sleeves look like they're cutting into the muscle on your arms. Anyway, it's one of the old original House of pain t's, it's got a skull on the back of it and around it, it says "Get Big or Die!" And no, I've never once worn this thing to the gym, I bought it at a show several years back just because I liked it, but seems like a pretty stupid thing to wear in public, lol! True, I do have a few shirts that probably walk right on the edge of the line as to what some of you would or would not wear in the gym or in public, but that one I just described is just too much.

Ahhh...haa haa.... I know the Under Armor kids @ Lifetime Fitness very well when I train at about 3:30, they sturt in with their gear on and go to work on those monster sets you described.

As for the small tight shirts, I just strut around town in my 3rd Grade shirts! ;D

But seriously, I have bought some of those too that look cool then you feel like a tool if you walked out of the house in them. Might as well throw on the multi-colored unitards to match.

Ok guys time for me to get serious. I've decided to try & go back to school. I don't have time or money but if I don't do it now I'll never do it. I figure now would be as good of a time as ever (no kids at the moment). Right now I'm torn between getting any one of the following degrees:

MS - Public Safety
MBA - General Business
MS - Organization & Management
MS - Organizational Psychology
MS - Sport Psychology

Keep in mind I've got no fucking clue as to what I'll be doing in five years. I'm looking to change careers & I'd love to where I live as well. I'd like to hear your thoughts on the above degrees & what you would go after if it were you.

Public safety for the job security, and your prior work will blend nice. The Psych stuff is interesting, but easy to budget cut. Maybee you want to add taht later?
The Business degrees maybee, but lots getting cut there. If you had particular Biz experience to go with it...
 Im lookin at an Economy that is not good to stick around a long time. Too many issues with no solution.

Sport Psychology should have a lot of upside and growth IMO. You could counsel a lot of baseball players that are getting depressed from being forced to stop juicing! Seriously, I do believe it is an up and coming career.

Business is always nice if you want to own and run your own business.

Sorry how could I forget those guys who stand right in front of the DB rack and makes it impossible to put back the heavy weights when they are curling 12.5 lbs DB's.

On Turkey day, one fat middle aged Under Armour champ was so sweaty and smelly and would not move when I tried to put back the 130's. He got the hint when I almost knocked him on his ass! Hate to be like that, but there is no gym etiquette anymore.

that is an everyday thing at my gym. if i walk up and some dude is 1 foot from the rack and doesn't move i'll just set the DB's at his feet and walk off. i'm not fucking up my back because he can't take 3 steps backwards.

the first gym i trained at had a red line with hatching that said "no standing". it was about 5 feet wide off the racks and everyone stayed out of that area. it worked great.

I pretty much had to "bump" him to make him realize I had to put them back. I was strapped in so could not just drop them. He knew where I was headed and still did not move so had to give him a little nudge  ;) He got the picture after that as his next set was behind the DB rack and out of the way! 

Lifetime needs the red line, I like that idea!

That is funny because depending on the muscle group I am working, will determine if I go to Golds or to Lifetime. Since today is Monday, I mean, Chest Day for the world, will go to Golds to avoid the Under Armor mass monsters @ Lifetime.

it seems alot of idiots are taking over all the gyms down here as well. my gym is always packed on monday night and it's getting worse. last night a lady was doing lunges and was using the flat bench to hold her towel and water bottle. i asked her nicely if i could use the bench and she said "when i'm done"...she did 5 more sets. ::)

Rim, I'd go with the Govt job in safety area. They will allways be printing pay checks.
Our country is going thru a major readjustment/  period. Things will never be what they were.
Basically I see it breaking down. LE related and Public safety are a sure thing.

Biz if you had previous experience only (or family in it) Your too expendable there unless very specialized.
You need to really pull in some Big buck$ to go it in your own Biz today.
It is SO prohibitive to run a small Biz today that even guys like a well paid surveyor friend have a hard time.
If your working for someone else in private Biz your a slave and vulnerable.

Stick with the Govt check and retirement unless you've got a headstart on a very highpaying field.

The better days for the USA are behind it. Open your eyes and look what its becoming, a refuge for
S. American refuse. Our leaders love the cheap labor.

Man the same shit pisses me off to.  Some dick did the same thing to me with a bench gone for 10 MIn then comes back says he was using it.  i said the same thing you did, now Im using it.  The dude was like well im doing my thing on it anyhow.  when i got up to re rack the Dbs i was doing flys with and he went to the bench and tried to adjust it I turned to the guy and said in a not so quite voice hey put that back Im not done and he did.  Then the dude was standing there kind of closer than i liked before my next set and i said dont stand fucking over me!  Guy backed off then some other bench opened up and the dude started his stupid workout overthere.

Guy comes over a couple mins later and says hey im not trying to be a dick but i wanna get MY sets in, Im just looking at him, thinking hey fuckwad so do I.  The thing is if the guy would have said "hey do you mind if I work in" I would have had no problem with it.  All you gotta do is ask nice  ;)

I agree with BusyB...do what makes you happy.

I've been on the verge of making some pretty major career changes lately, but one thing that is very important to me is that I always maintain some level of freedom in my work, as well as the ability to decide what and how much I make...of course this is always determined by how hard and how willing you are to work.

Sure, a lot of people need the security of a more "standard" type of job...nothing wrong with that at all...and who knows, if the right thing came along, I could end up in a spot like that one day too.

Serious question: What's your all time favorite type of cheese?

Mine is a toss up between Munster & Pepperjack - I love them both too much to pick just one.

Dealing with an Italian girl,

Bocancinni, she cuts it in slices (as they come in a little ball) and then she cuts tomatoes in slices as well, puts them layed out on a plate, then drizzles olive oil over top. Sprinkles oregano and some salt and voila....bomb. Eat this every weekend with my steak...

In the past any dbol or drol I've used was always UGL...these days though AJ is 100% pharma all the way...so thought I'd give that a go and see if things went smoother.

Even so, I guess I'll never know how well it works since Arnold jr. does not use any form of AAS or any other performance enhancing item...just lots of whey powder, fish oil.
Did this about 4yrs ago, not as hardcore as this squat thing, but it hurt.

*Find some DB that you can press on the incline for 10reps, not to failure but a few reps short of failure.

*Rest for 30sec and repeat. Repeat until you absolutely fail on 10 reps or at 9 or so.

*Drop down in weight but make sure you can get 8-10 reps.

*Do this until you have completed 10 full sets of incline DB press.

*Chest training over.

Okay bro, I like it...will do tomorrow as it is chest day, nice...the only thing that I can think of that might feel like this would be 10 up and 10 down with barbell curls..passing it back and forth to your partner.

Saturday was the first time since getting hurt in September that I've actually use a dumbbell over 45lbs for any pressing movements. Because I've been favoring my wrist & elbow I've been doing a lot of machines for chest & shoulders but on Saturday I felt a little crazy. I worked myself up the the 75lb dumbbells for incline presses. Ended up doing about seven sets of them. Felt great while I was doing it but then the next day I paid for it. My left hand was numb & swollen (I couldn't wear my wedding ring - wife's pissed). Anyway, just a little rant. It's a long road to recovery I guess.

Double time for thanksgiving, is that a standard in the States? We get triple in Canada, well I know my staff does.

Usually you get some sort of Holiday conpensation. I actually get 2.5 times may pay for Holidays.

YOu guys need some home equipment to do arms and bench at least.

That shiet's way rude,
Ever seen a fight in a Gym? I never have, but worked with a guy who got in one.
He could get in one at church though.

Saw a fight a couple of weeks ago, little small guy that didn't take this big dudes shit...pulled some Bruce Lee shit and cracked his head open off the smith machine...did not see it coming at all, thought the little dude was going to get pumled...this is the reason I don't bounce anymore...to much guns,knives and guys that love to fight for a high off of it...screw that....my life and my son are way to important for some jackass that decides he didn't like the way I threw him out of the club...

Man the same shit pisses me off to.  Some dick did the same thing to me with a bench gone for 10 MIn then comes back says he was using it.  i said the same thing you did, now Im using it.  The dude was like well im doing my thing on it anyhow.  when i got up to re rack the Dbs i was doing flys with and he went to the bench and tried to adjust it I turned to the guy and said in a not so quite voice hey put that back Im not done and he did.  Then the dude was standing there kind of closer than i liked before my next set and i said dont stand fucking over me!  Guy backed off then some other bench opened up and the dude started his stupid workout overthere.

Guy comes over a couple mins later and says hey im not trying to be a dick but i wanna get MY sets in, Im just looking at him, thinking hey fuckwad so do I.  The thing is if the guy would have said "hey do you mind if I work in" I would have had no problem with it.  All you gotta do is ask nice  ;)

The management at gyms sucks the fucks are lazy a holes who just wanna sit around and get through the day with minimal hassle.

I feel your pain!!! it's like a battlefield trying to get a bench at the gym these days. i remember when i first started training stuff like this didn't bother me, but now i'm set in my ways and like to do specific exercises in a certian order. maybe i'm being picky but i feel out of rythem when i have to alter my workout because someone his hogging a bench.

the gym management doesn't give a shit, they just want to sign more members in an already crowded gym. i've trained at every gym in my area and it's all the same. the LA fitness i go to allows me to use chalk and do deadlifts without any bitching. most gyms freak out when i use chalk.

i'm going to start doing the long drive to my old powerlifting gym, i think it will be worth it at this time. with the "new years crew" about to swarm the gyms, i need to keep my sanity with my powerlifting buddies.

I feel you guys pain...for starters, it is irritating not being able to use the equipment you want...which is just another reason not to do chest on Monday or any day early in the wk.

Luckily for me, the gym I go to is extremely large and there are areas that are more reserved for the idiots like myself...sort of. You can use chalk, squat w/o shoes, do all the deads you want and nobody cares. Plus even if people do care, the owner sure doesn't...Carl Lindner Jr owns my gym, which might mean something to you baseball fans...point being, he has no clue as to what goes on there.

When I finally actually get to see Metallica live this will be the best concert I've ever gone to.

I've never been to what I'd call a great concert. Most fun I've ever had at a concert though, both when I was 20yrs old...trashed out of my mind at both...Lynard Skynard and Alabama. Not a huge Skynard fan, they're OK and I'm not a country music fan at all but if your trashed any show can be fun. Skynard takes the cake though...some good dirty female fun at that one, lol!

I agree with #2...for the most part I can't stand rap...every know and then though there will be a song I like.
Country music, some stuff is OK...can depend on my mood but listening to it is very rare just the same.

I'm not a big G&R fan either...some of the songs are OK though, but I've never bought an album or gone to a show.

Anyway, nothing gets me revved like Metallica, excluding the last album which was horrific IMO. The new album sounds promising from what I've heard so far. Of course I'd imagine this means very little to you, lol!

BEST show?  Hands down, AC/DC  IN ROCKFORD ILL.  About 1978 I think, somthing wrong with my memory,
but I do recall having to walk on & step over passed out bodies face down in the mud in the ball field.
Packed like a sardine can, and Almost 100 Degree F   & some dipshit climbed on top a Foul overflowing porta-pottie for a better view. So loud you could feel the bleachers vibrate (I think.. ;D)

It was awesome, me and a friend fought our way to the stagefront for a while, It was horid but the crowd was electric  and they preformed with insane energy in that heat.

So loud the neighbors by the stadium had a great show sitting in their yards.
We walked FOREVER just to get to it.
Grass and hash were basicly treated as legal back then.

It was SO packed that them OD's were face down in the mob. Youd come up to a little oassis of space to discover it was a body face down, it was SO crowded you HAD to step over or on them. Pretty bad.

They suck ass in concert now. well, compared to when i saw them in the early 90's. the last metallica concert i went to i couldn't even understand what James was singing but i knew the song anyway. they are nothing compared to what they were. plus their new music is horrible.

best concerts ever.

David Allen Coe
Metallica in 1992
Pantera in 1993
Coal chamber
Marilyn Manson - puts on the best concerts, even if you hate his music
Megadeath 1994
White Zombie 1996

I'd say my top ones are the following:

Rod Stewart
Neil Diamond
Ani Difranco

Bob Dylan (a couple times)

In order of the best shows.
1.) Metallica- seen them 8 times. First time was Master of Puppets and they were actually the second act to come out for Monsters of Rock. Right after that, Cliff died. That show had Van Halen (Hagar) headline, Dokken, Scorpions, Metallica and Kingdom Come (Zepplin wannabes) at Candlestic in San Fran.

2.) Rush- seen them 7 times. Neil Pert drum solos are the best....never seen anything like that.

3.) Matchbox 20 and Train- As far as talented musicians, this show kicked butt plus had the hottest women

4.) La LA Palooza- Chili Peppers, Icecube, Cypress Hill, Soundgarden, Minestry. Saw another La La Palooza with Metallica, Devo and can't remember who else.

I keep all my ticket stubs since I was a kid to concerts and sporting events. Should go dig them up because I am forgetting a ton.

Some other memorable shows:
AC/DC and White Lion- 1989

Public Enemy, Run DMC, Beastie Boys (before anyone heard of them), EPMD- 1987

WOW, ok, now I have to go smoke a joint in rememberance  8)

Off the top of my head:

-Pink Floyd
-Damian Marley (amazing energy at the shows)
-Several of the Grateful Dead shows I caught, although most of them are kind of a blur so I can't really identify one specifically  ;D
-U2 (always great live)

Clapton & Stevie Ray @ Alpine in Stevies 2nd to last show.
The Helo crashed the next night on departure, it was supposed to be Claptons ride, but they traded.

Great show.

ALso Ted Nugent and Foghat at the start of his fame.

Cypress @ La La Palooza was one of the best all day shows I have ever been to. They had side stages and House of Pain played on one. First time all of us heard "Jump Around".

Amazing EVERYTHING at Damian Marley...maybe it's the weed lol, but the crowd is SO into the music, it sets the whole place on fire. It's killer.  8)

Cypress Hill was a good show too. 

I went and saw the reunion tour of Simon and Garfunkel, and I wouldn't put it up there as one of the craziest shows I have ever seen, but it was pretty awesome to see them together live, a show that I'm really glad I saw.  Art Garfunkel's vocals are mind-blowing....like the kind of thing where everyone in the arena just sits in silence and listens.

yeah im not a fan of that thrashing metal music where the guy is screaming and the music is basicly just noise, crap wears me out just listening to it for 30 seconds.
You know Luv I guess it's one of those things that's an acquired taste so to speak...or maybe you just have to be a really weird guy like Arnold jr to appreciate it, lol!

As for the term "noise" I've played guitar since I was 8yrs old, and when it comes to decent hard/metal music, this is always harder to play then anything else...that is if you're talking about a good band...like every genre there are sucky bands.

Anyway, looks like I'm in the minority on this topic in a big way...Overload, decent list...hopefully are Scandinavian counterpart will chime in.

Oh yeah, best show as far as quality of music...assuming you like hard stuff....Children of Bodom, and Arch Enemy.

I went to George Strait Fest about 6 or 7yrs ago...thought I was going to go out of my mind....longest day of my life...that's what I get though for living in country music land...that's what I get for being a guy too and letting some girl talk me into going, lol!

That was the same one I went to!!! Same scenerio, damn chick bought my ticket. I would have rather had a root canel that day. Top it off, we had a monsoon so was a mud bowl by the end of the show.

But, the more beer I drank the better the girl looked and less my ear's ached ;)

hahaha that's the same song that popped into my head.  There are usually hundreds of screaming 30-something and 40-something year old women in the first few rows of a Neil Diamond concert.  I'm not one of them, though, I don't even like to pretend that I like him that much when I am at the concert.   ;D

Lamest concert - for me was James Taylor, it was a total snoozefest.  It's funny because the Simon and Garfunkel concert wasn't like that at all, even though it's a similar genre of music.  James bored me.   :-\

Nine Inch Nails was another great show.

Hi, it's been awhile since i've been on this board, i guess i was just a little fed up for awhile. I've read a few posts and it really seems that guys are getting into heated arguments again, nothing wrong with that i guess.

Well the winter hit hard up here and i haven't been out much (hopefully i have the basics: barbells, dumbells etc. at home.

Tomorrow i'll go and have a talk with this bar owner, i'll propably start bouncing again. I don't really want to, but it's  pretty much the only way to make qood cash. I was looking for a "regular" job, but since you have to work from Monday to Friday and make less money than working two days at the door i choose the latter.

Btw: I just saw the new Resident Evil and i was kind of dissapointed, i mean the movie was ok, but it was hardly loyal to the games. Also today i had a pretty good biceps workout, even though i only did 4 set of barbell curls and 4 sets of concentration curl.

OK, on the topic of music, 99.9% of you are going to hate this first song but there is a point.

The guy who's an insane gorilla that I train with a good bit is the drummer in this clip...you first see him at about 50sec into the clip...now add about 30lbs of solid muscle to this and you have an absolute beast.

http://youtube.com/watch?v=g_CpiOmEIg4

Well, he left this band back in January of this past year to pursue other things, but not before they recorded their first more main stream rock album...he left the band right before they went on tour...now opening for Ozzy. Anyway, the newest album is much much softer but it's a pretty cool album...might be a little more enjoyable for some of you then their original stuff. You can hear 4 of the new songs here.
I don't care for the 1st one but the next 3 are pretty good...their cover of "Carry on My Wayward Son" is pretty good IMO.

Also, here's an old pic taken of the band a few years ago before my buddy got hardcore into the training thing...again, add 30+ solid lbs to this...awesome!

I was really into heavy metal for years. some of the stuff i listened to back then i can't stand now, like Manson. his first two albums were great but he went gay and screwed up, but he still put on the most insane concerts i've ever seen, NIN is right behind him in creative concerts, i forgot to add that to the list. Tool is one of my favorites, seen them 2 times. Slayer is another i forgot, i still listen to Angel of Death when i workout. Pantera IMO is one of the best heavy metal bands on earth, i've seen them 3 times. their first 2 albums are untouchable, even today. most heavy metal bands today don't have it together, it's just noise but every now and then a good album comes out, hatebreed put out some good songs the last few years.

i'm also a huge old country music fan, it's in my blood. Merle Haggard, George Straight, Alabama, Johnny Cash(the best ever IMO), Waylon Jennings...you get my drift. today's country is crap, i can't even listen to it.

i'm also a huge fan of techno and trance music. Armin Van Burren, Paul oakenfold, Robert miles...good cardio music.

i like it all, i have classical, old school rap and just about anything worth listening to.

your workout partner is a big mofo...monster arms.

I'm with you on the Pantera, hard to touch "Mouth for War" and "Broken"...Slayer's not bad either.

On the country, Johnny is King no doubt...his old stuff is great and his last few albums were really cool...the songs he did with Tom Petty were fantastic.

You lost me on "Hatebreed" though. IMO they are one of the metal bands that are actually what people complain about when they talk about metal...every song is identical. In their case, every song is a hard open D on the guitar...not very original at all IMO.

Best concert i've ever been to was DIO back in 2003 here in Helsinki. That dude is like the smallest and oldest guy around, but when he got fired up there was no stopping him.

Also some great bands here that put on a good show:

Nightwish
Stratovarius
Disturbed (have not seen them live, but they are great).
Iron Maiden (when i'm in the "powerpit" of my gym listening to this and doing squats i get all the privacy i want from the civilians).
Evergrey
MEGADETH
Rammstein
and i've allways liked Queen.
Children of Bodom

And i like allmost all the 80īs metal bands, those guys were 120 lbs soaking wet, but man they were the shit Twisted sister etc.)

Not bad bro...the first song in the video and the other 4 were damn good. But not so crazy about the singer. Something is off with him man but they play tight.

Is your buddy bummed he is not on tour with Ozzfest? That would be fucking wild...Beast he is, probably busted many drum sets!

Another show I forgot about........ Ice-T when his hard rock band Bodycount was on a club tour. That was wild!

Little Ronnie James...man was a demon! Fuckin loved DIO...
2003? Man must have been 100 years old then.

We must be about the same age because I grew up with the 80's rock too. Not so much the fluff bands like Poison or Warrent. Even though some were hair bands Ratt, Scorps, Van Halen, Ozzy,Megadeath and even Queen was cool back then. I was lucky to grow up in Nor Cal so I was onto Metallica years before the radio played them. Back when their albums came out like Ride the Lightning, Kill em ALl, never any radio play until the Black Album.

You guys will love this. Back in '97, when I worked for ABB, Dave Mustaine from MEGADEATH ordered a bunch of drinks from us to be shipped to the city he was opening his tour at. I took the order and thought he was messing with me when he called, but really was him. Bought enough for the whole tour, Blue Thunder and Ripped Force if I remember right. Then got to meet him when he came back. Dude was cool but heard he is a dick when he was not sober. This is right after he got clean.

I agree, I've never been all that crazy about the lead vocals, but I've heard much worse IMO...and like you said, they play very tight...great musicians and can play just about anything very well.

...and no, he's not bummed at all...he had no regrets about leaving and has a full plate of other things going on...that said, he is not done playing drums....does a butt load of studio work still here in Nashville...but his main focus is elsewhere for the moment.

So apparently we've started in on one of AJ's favorite topics...music.

Now here's a cool guy I think a lot of you would like, Luca Turilli...very differant kind of stuff, but a very good mix as well. He has his own solo stuff, his rock band "Rhapsody of Fire" and the project "Dreamquest" I have no idea how to classify "Dream Quest"...in "Dream Quest" he doesn't do the vocals, they're done by a woman, don't know her name but she has a phenomenal voice IMO.

Some of his music has a semi hard edge to it, especially the "Rhapsody of Fire" stuff, not all metal at all, but a lot of it is a major hybrid of styles, rock/folk/opera/symphony/ and whatever else you can think of...anyway, "Rolling Stone" referred to this guy about a year ago as the first true musical genius since the 19th century...I agree. Has anyone ever noticed that there is no longer someone who you could really label as a musical genius? You know, how the guys like Beethoven or Mozart were labeled? This guy seems to be beginning to live up to that sort of title.

Anyway, here are some cool Luca Turilli samples...each one is differant from the other.

Demon Heart...my favorite of his
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jBEZwuJjNqg

Black Dragon (symphonic rock)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ut6_ZxSbick

Too Late (Dream Quest) Not sure how to clssify this one
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=osQ5RfkZWRA

Prophet of the last Eclipse (Dream Quest) techno/rock/and randomness, lol, but still good.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=34LDV625iLg

Energy (Dream Quest) …I know, this one makes me gay, lol!
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YdVieZxTMNM

Well, i think i'm little younger than you, i'm 23. But i've been listening that stuff since i was like 6 so it grew on me. MEGADETH is one of my alltime favourites, i remember when i was working construction and i was putting down the walls at this business complex and i was listening to MEGADETH on a boombox while hammering away. After awhile this one guy that i was friends with came up to me and asked "so you like MEGADETH?" and i said HELL YEAH! After we spoke awhile he told me that he's a distant cousin of Dave Mustane. He was also a drummer himself in some small band. Dave Mustane's granfather immigrated to US from Finland and he's actual last name is Mustonen. If any of you watch (or use to) watch Formula 1, there was this driver Mika Häkkinen that looks EXACTLY like Dave Mustane...

I've never heard any of that but it wouldn't suprise me either way...not that I think their a racist band or something, but nothing is all that suprising when talking about music. Either way, I doubt they'd have too many black fans either way...I've never known to many black people to be a fan of that type of music...a few but not many.

Yesterday i went to this "job interview" and got a new place to bounce, i was supposed to start next weekend, but the owner called me this morning and told me that the previous bouncer had some trouble with the law and now i have to start today. That would be fine except last night i drank just about half of all the booze in the world and i'm still drunk/hung over really BAD.

It was a fun night though, i did all this weird shit like when i went to the WC i told this one guy that this other guy wants to suck him off. Well, they started fighting and i left. LOL. I also cheated on the roulette. I took the maximum amount of chips and placed them near the red/black line and when i saw where the ball landed i shifted my chips overthere. Normally that would never fly, but the dude that was spinning the wheel was an absolute moron.

Nah, just standard stuff today...I don't do to many things like the squat thing all that often...that was just for kicks. A standard chest day for me looks like this...today's chest day:

Incline DB 2 warm up sets of 20, slightly heavy set of 10, then working sets: 10, 8, 6

BB bench: 10, 8, 6, 4...normally it would only be 3 sets, but today the first one ended up being to light to justify it being a working set IMO.

Pec/dek 10, 8, 8

Cardio: 30min

Go home, eat, wait, eat again, repeat all night long.

I know every bar and nightclub here like my own pockets and i know that there isnt any security cameras near the roulette table.

BTW, hard to beleive such hard/brutal/evil vocals come from someone that looks like this. AJ likes very much :o

Well AJ i have personally heard her say the following

1. SIEG HAIL
2. WHITE POWER
3. KILL THE NI***RS
4. ONLY PURE SCANDINAVIAN RACE...

She really IS a sweet girl insn't she?

Btw: I'm 100% serious.

Something that suprises me about what you're saying...I've seen her on the cover of every metal/rock magazine there is, including Rolling Stone and all of those have nothing but good things to say...just seems like I would have heard about this by now.

I'm not saying I don't believe you, but it just seems far fetched to me...but if you've heard it I'll take your word on it. No way she'd say that kind of thing though over here...you can't say anything even slightly off color here anymore and not expect to pay hell for it...not that you should be able to say that stuff though, but all-in-all, its gotten ridiculous over here IMO.

I wonder why number 4 though? She's not SCANDINAVIAN at all...she's German, born in Cologne.

Well, ít might have been NORDIC what she said and many people who believe that way think that most whites are decendents of TEUTONS (including the greeks).

I know they are trying to make a name for themselfes over there and it's only a matter of time before someone catches up. In her defense, i don't think she was sobre and there were a lot of skinheads in the crowd so she might have been sucking up to the audience. (I wonder what she would have said if the audience were black and jewish, lol).

In any case i was in the first row  with my brother and we were both pretty suprised about the way she talked and all. I know that magazines like Rolling Stone do good background checks, but even they can't know everything that has happened in the other side of the world.

Hey, like I said, I'll take you word on it.

Drunk or not though, I'm still suprised...she's one of those that is always very vocal about peace and harmony and loving your fellow man and all that...you know, to the point where it's almost irritating, lol!

Anyway, I'd hate to think that one of my favorite bands and lead singers was a racist lunatic...especially since they are the ones who created my theme song.

BTW, other then the "comments" how was that show?

I'm with you on the Pantera, hard to touch "Mouth for War" and "Broken"...Slayer's not bad either.

On the country, Johnny is King no doubt...his old stuff is great and his last few albums were really cool...the songs he did with Tom Petty were fantastic.

You lost me on "Hatebreed" though. IMO they are one of the metal bands that are actually what people complain about when they talk about metal...every song is identical. In their case, every song is a hard open D on the guitar...not very original at all IMO.

I guess i should have been more specific, i like 2 songs HB put out on their last album. i agree 100%, all their songs sound the same.

Hey on a different note....

Do you married guys talk to hot chicks in the gym or avoid them?  I kind of avoid conversation so not to put myself in a tempting situation down the road...I know that I am weak so I don't "play with fire."

What do you think?  Same approach?  Or, do you just befriend them and use self control?  Or do you just cheat and not worry about it?

I have some friends that are friends with all of them and don't think it is a big deal.  I just think they are fooling themselves; its just a matter of time before the wrong situation presents itself.  When I am "on" I might hump a chair leg if I'm not careful.

I'm not married but i might as well be...

i've always believed "what goes around, comes around" so i've never cheated on any of my girlfriends because i value relationships more than most men. of course there are times when i see a beautiful girl and there are thoughts that cross my mind but i just look and that's it. i've talked with plenty of hot females without wanting to jump their bones, even though i thought about it... ;)

i'm also one of the few guys who respects married women, if a girl is married i will never go after her, even if she gives me hints. just not my style to steal women. if they want me they can leave their man first.

when i'm "on" i could hump a drain hole but i have good self control and i keep my dick in my pants. some days it builds up more than others but i'll go home and do something romantic for my girl and i'll get my release.  ;D

most guys i know cheat all the time but then when they find out thier girl cheated on them they are pissed. i don't understand this at all, if you aren't happy just find another girl. one of my friends cheated on his girl with 5 different women and didn't think it was a big deal. then he finds out she cheated on him once and he goes ape shit. i honestly laughed at him when he told me how mad he was.

     About six months ago i started taking steroids. Nothing unusual or different to tell there - but this is where the ordinary ends, and my story begins. Upon the first day of my injection i had a startling revelation: why don't i take some coke every time i juice up? And so i did. At first i didn't know what the hell i was doing, only that i was meant to be shooting up the substance (which will remain unamed for now) into the meaty region of my ass; but i chose my thigh instead. However, it didn't happen that way. Being so smacked out of my brains on rediculous amounts of coke, i some how, in my monent of enlightenment, mistaked my penis -yes, my penis - for my left thigh. I began to surge huges amounts of steroids into my throbbing member below ... and with startling results. My penis became massive, built, ripped to shreds - and my girlfriend renamed it 'Arnie' because she felt like she was being 'pumped by iron'. And now, after six months of penal-sight injection and countless steel-like erections, my outrageously masculine and muscular member is ...wait for it ... addicted. My Arnie can not - and will not - perform unless it is hopped up on the good ol' souped up sauce...

the wrong situation can present itself anywhere....not just the gym. its what YOU do in the situation that is important. talking to a beautiful woman is like talking to a neighbor, or a friend, or a co-worker. im confident enough to know that i have a 1) strong will 2) respect my woman 3) respect my relationship with her to do anything other than talk to women whether it be at the bar, work or the gym

I am not married but live with my girl. She is into fitness and competes as well. Part of my business is that I train and get figure girls ready for shows. Now, I "take a look" at them once a week and believe me, it is hard to stay professional when big fake tits and hard asses are held together by tiny pieces of clothing within one inch of your face!!

I manage to stay professional but of course my mind wanders. If I was sleeping with all the girls, no way I would have any business! Being in this industry, I am friends with a lot of hot, hot women as hard as it is.

My girl gets it and has only gotten jealous of one girl because I made the mistake of telling her I had a crush on her before I met my girl. I have never cheated on her nor tried to, my ass would get caught knowing me and I really do love my girl. In my younger days, I would probably think with my dick and the opportunity has been there, don't get me wrong, just choose to not act on it. Damn conscious.. >:(


Title: Re: *****The New Locker Room*****
Post by: abc123 on December 05, 2007, 11:48:37 AM

Funny this topic came up because I know a guy that recently got caught in all his lies to his wife. He was messing around with a girl from the gym and wound up not being able to keep up with which lie he was telling.

Sad thing is his wife took him back! Some women have no self esteem. I know my girl would first kick my ass, then send me packing!

That's how most guys get caught.

My girl already told me if she finds out i cheated on her she will chop off my dick and feed it to the neighbors dog...these Asian chicks have a way with words!!! the thing is i KNOW she is dead serious!

i'm very happy with my relationship and i think what leads to cheating most of the time is just getting bored with each other. i think after a year or so if you are thinking about cheating you might as well just leave the person then and find another.

My wife always says the exact same thing.  "I'll cut your dick off."  The threat isn't the main reason I don't cheat, but it's added incentive.

We've been together for almost ten years (married six) and I still have not gotten bored with her.  I'm lucky. 

However, hot women are still hot and I am still a man.  That being said, I am confident I have the will power to say "no" should a situation arise, but I still try to keep my distance.  I just feel that it's best to stay away from the fire.  That way there is less probability that one will get burned.

Overload, Wait 10 years, that: "I'll cut off you dick and feed to Maa (Dog)"  changed to...
      "I'll help set you up with a new Thia Girl friend!"   "I'll help translate!" .... "Shit, I'll pay her to take your ass!"  ;D

Seriously I think she's be lost with out me. She dont care if I watch girls, she points out hot girls to me.
She seems ammused when I get young girls to talk to me in the stores.
It would be the end if she caught me cheating, and I never would. I wouldnt tollerate it either.

I wouldn't be worried about my wife killing me if I cheated. I'd be more worried about her not killing me but wounding me. I envision her attempting to shoot me with my gun (which she doesn't know how to use) & then horribly maming me or paralyzing me or something. Which is why I've tried to teach her to shoot for years. So at least she'll know what to do if she wants to kill me.  ;D

Mine does the same when she catches me looking at another girl, even if it's just a glance. "you like her? i go talk to her for you and get number. you want that? i don't mind" it cracks me up but she looks serious.

Those eyes, i catch myself looking deep into them alot, something about their eyes drives me nuts. when she's mad they are on fire, almost crazy looking, i stand back a good 5 feet when she gets pissed. when they are turned on it's unreal, you can easily tell and then you know what to do, my girl can't hide it well so i take action... ;D

Ps. You don't have to worry about cheating if you are as "good looking" as i'm...
In fact i coudnt even cheat since i dont have GF and that's the way i like it, i don't wan't anyone to tell me how i spend my days...  (atleast not yet)

I used to be the same way, i'd date girls for a few months and find another, just played the field as i called it. i did this for years until i found someone who did things for me no other girl i had met could even fathom. you will find someone one day who will ring your bell. i always thought i would be single forever and just "play the game"...well, i changed my mind. ;)

it's sad what happen in Neb, but it gives me a better reason to carry my .45 everywhere i go. had everyone in the mall carried a gun with a permit there would be one dead body, that kid...

Its a pretty sad world,,, we even used to have a shooting team in HS. Nobody would bat a eye if we took cased guns from car to car, or even into the school.

A lot has changed...

Your friends brother should call the big local accident Law firm. The mall has deep pockets insh.
Its just business as usuall today, If you owned the mall, you'd get sued. May as well sue them. Its the national sport.

Violent Crime? My city is pretty laid back but gettin worse. THeres a couple areas I'd cary if I had a permit. They (CCW) are not even availible in Liberal utopia Wi...

Yeah, I bet he will get a lawyer, I would take a bullet in the arm for a nice chunk of change..maybe not one to the head, but an arm is ok!

Ok, 240 Grain Hollow Point out of a  .44Mag...  :o  No Thanks to taht! Those take  arms right off.
I didnt hear what he was shooting, but any large cal rifle is bad news to get hit with.

And YES! They have developed frost resistant mexicans, and they are pouring into my area. They bring a lot of problems along too. NO WAY all these bastards are all legal. I bet a small % are.

Ok, since you put it that way, maybe graze my arm. They are not big enough to fight off a .44! Sounded like his arm was still in tact.

LOL, frost resistant mexicans...that is too funny. I understand they walk into my state. Kinda hard to walk from Mexico to Wi...guess if you want freedom bad enough?!

Yeah, it's fucked up every where, about a month ago this kid took his gun to school and killed 11 people and himself. He also tortured them and sended videos of it to YOUTUBE (they are removed) but can propably be found somewhere on the net. Whether you guys have heard this or not, i don't know, but it's sick. (Happened here in FIN).

Few years ago this student made a BIG home bomb and set it of in the biggest local shopping center. He exploded it under this glass dome and over 50 people died and this world famous wrestling ref (olympia style wrestling) that i know got his heart pierced by a piece of glass. Weird thing was that i was under the glass dome with my little brother 7 mins. before. We were talking and i said to him "lets go home i'm tired" my brother was like "no let's stay for awhile" thankfully we decided to go home...

A good friend of mine used to play basketball in his team and he told that during those three years he NEVER spoke to anyone, unless it was absolutely necessary.  THAT SPELLS SICK!

I think I miss my gyno.  It's strange not to have it around anymore.  We grew attached over time.   ;D  I cultivated and raised it from just a pup.  It was around for 12 years - that's longer than any woman thus far in my life.  :'(

Any of you ever watch "The Girl Next Door"?

I know it's been on for a while but I never watched it, just cause it seemed so retarded...anyway, saw it for the 1st time last night real late...couldn't sleep, so had to do something, Lol!

Anyway, that show has got to be the dumbest thing I've ever seen...and that says a lot since there is a lot of dumb shit on television.

Even so, those girls are hot as crap...I'll give em that...not so much one of them IMO, but the "main" girl and then the sort of tom boy one...Arnold jr. approved, lol!

Yeah, my wife loves it.  It's mildly entertaining.  The only reason it does well is because the girls are very hot and naked quite a bit (even though blurred out).  I like them all, but Kendra has the best body.

Heffner is a stud.  What a life.  My younger brother is friends with a relative of Hef's.  He went to a party at the mansion recently where all the girls were in bodypaint.  He said it was insane and so easy to hook up.  He said people were openly screwing out back in the hot tub, pool, etc.

I'd like to visit California and attend a party, but I think that would probably be a severe violation of my unwritten rule of talking with hot girls...I'm not sure I have that much will power as a married man.

Yeah if you were at a party at the PB mansion and all those hotties were running around you would pretty much HAVE to have sex with at least one....married or not.....it would just be impossible not to.  So pretty much you just better not go.

Wow bro I'm quite disappointed in you! If you were at the mansion you would have to man up at least one time. In fact you could take the wife along for the ride, she might like it also! LMAO

Yeah, I would have to convince the wife somehow.  It would be a once in a lifetime opportunity right?  She couldn't deny me that?

I keep trying to convince her to let me have a girlfriend.  I promise her that the girlfriend will be hot and make the wife look good.  They can hang out together, shop together, she'll have someone to help her with the kids and split sex duties, clean, etc.  Its a win - win right?

Yur goin' about it all wrong!!  ::)  You just Need to explain to Wifey that the new young Honey will wash all the dishes and shit like that...
Thats how it works in my Wifes country. They even have a name... Mia Noy.. (wife little or wife minor is the translation.) Verry common. Also lots of the girls are Bi there anyway.(Strange sexual norms there to say the least) 

But remember, carefullwhat youask for... 2 Chicks on PMS  :o  Bitching... Shit they might just run off together  ;D

Most experience smart Thai guys there say to have one girl in the city and one in the country. But some have more than one together. You could also join "The Religion of Peace" :-X  ::) THey get up to 3 wives (that most cant support) there.
Quite a few drawlbacks to the ass-in-the-air thing several times a day and all their other B.S though.

Isn't it true that when women spend so much time together, like sisters, they start getting their periods at the same time? YIKES!!  :o

Old school Italians are the same way, having a girl-friend on the side...

Yes, my wife and ExGF's say they all get on the same time...  ::)
Another reason to listen to the wise guys who say keep one here and there...

2 would be a complicated relationship. Only way I see it working is if the girls were best friends, prolly Bi also.
Many very strange relations in her land...

On a good note, i got my Viet to watch boxing for the first time in her life on saturday. i was hoping Mayweather would get killed but looks like he pulled it off...again.

She actually enjoyed the fights and when guys were getting knocked around the ring she got excited and started yelling "hit back, hit back"...lol...then she goes "you don't want to do that anymore, right?" ;)

i guess getting myself back into full time Muay Thai training in the spring might not be so easy to talk her into...

Not to change subjects but any of you hunters out there eat Elk meat? My girl is from Montana and her dad takes people on hunting trips and always has way more meat than they can handle, winding up giving some to charity.

Well, that is not something you tell a bodybuilder, give away protein, whatever, better send some to me. But thought I would check about quality from y'all that hunt them or have eaten it. Can always use free meat!!   8)

We have a Fillapino that sits right outside of my office.  All I can say is DAMN.  She works out regulary and has a nice set of fake tits to go along with a great body and face.  Plus, she always wears tight shirts and is very friendly.  It's hard on a married guy.

These are not corn and game fed, up in the mountains is where they roam!! He takes people up there on expeditions. Might be a bit more dark meat then?? Just guessing..

Looked up the nutritional value of GAME Elk.

Higher in fat ~8g for 4 oz. and 26 g. protein with ZERO carbs. Probably more dark meat I bet....

Honestly guys, you really like eating deer meat?
Yes, I've had it plenty of times...not in years but growing up yes I ate it...it's the law in TN lol!

But the stuff is not that tasty IMO. It's similar to beef, at least that's the closest similarity, but it's much much tougher then beef....kind of stringy, chewy...not all that great IMO. No, not gross or nasty, but if I had a choice between a deer steak and a beef steak, there is no way on God's green earth I'd pick the deer steak.

Maybe it's more of the idea of just eating what you killed...kind of an extra satisfaction out of that...maybe.

Not to start the whole insanity about hunting that we had on here a while back...remember that, lol! But I grew up hunting, had my first gun at 8yrs old...just a single shot 4/10 but I loved it lol! Anyway, I grew up hunting everything in site...and if I wasn't hunting, there was a good chance I was still shooting something, stray dogs/cats birds just to shoot them etc.

OK, so my point, in retrospect, this was idiotic...nothing wrong with hunting IMO, but just shooting everything in site for no reason, pretty gay and I know I'm not the only one on here that's done/does/did this.

Anyway, I don't hunt anymore...haven't in years....prob at lest 6 or 7. Honestly, if I was to go deer hunting right now I don't know if I could do it anymore...getting soft in my old age, lol! OK, not too soft, I'd still have no problem shooting someone point blank in the face if they broke into my house,.

Post by: Overload on December 11, 2007, 11:59:45 AM
It wasn't cooked right if it was chewy. it's tough and stringy by nature but it's only chewy when over cooked, most people over cook the hell out of deer meat, that's called jerky... ;)

Try cooking it SLOW and keep pouring the marinade on it every 5 minutes. i like to bake it in a marinade.

The best way to cook deer is in a stew. i make a venison stew that is identical to beef stew, in fact most people can't tell they are eating deer...fooled a few girlfriends that way... ;D

I'll take a steak over deer any day of the week but i enjoy deer a few times a month. most people don't care for it.

Deer and varmint hunting is part of the landscape where i live...but we don't need to go over that again... :)

I eat everything i shoot but coyote isn't very good... :-X
