Anybody see anything wrong with having to hide steroid use from your girlfriend?  What is the reason for that? You want her to think your physique is only because of your hard work and you want the credit instead of the drugs? Maybe because you feel embarrassed that you so desperately want to be seen as a man that you will use a syringe to achieve that perception? Is it because if word gets out that guys will no longer think you physique is an achievement but something bought out of the trunk of a drug dealer? I forgot everyone uses steroids in sport.  Roll Eyes

I use to carry stuff like wrist straps, neck strap harness, dipping belt and a workout journal.

At 54 you want to make sure you don't have a heart attack in the gym. With all the law suits flying from Hormone Replacement Therapy regarding heart attacks and strokes from how the low dose testosterone thickens the blood how could you consider bodybuilding drugs at your age? You have muscle but you don't look like a young 54. Concentrate on fitness which includes lifting and a lot of cardio.  Forget about posing to music in a speedo all grease up. It does sound like Prime said you had a major hernia repair. Exhaust your muscles with reps, form and shorten the rest between sets instead of the amount of weight. If there is a way to do an exercise harder do it instead of shortening the range of motion to make it easier. It will have you lifting lighter weights but with better results. You are exercising the muscle not to impress anyone including yourself.

That's how real women look. That 12 year old boy look that gets praise from warped guys in women is just wrong.

enjoy the concert and bars ...what concert is it ?

Bruno Mars, he sold out Madison Square Garden two nights in row. I just lucked out and got seats near the front of the stage on the floor of the 20K arena.

I did this work out today. Delt and tris. Hit workout, no warm ups listed. One set to failure.

Press behind the neck 1 x 6 ( went all the way down to resting the bar on my traps like I was squatting.)
dumbbell shoulder press 1 x 10 (all the way down)
dumbbell lateral raises 1 x 12
Single arm D ring laterals 1 x 12
Rear delt dumbbell raises 1 x 14
Barbell shrugs 1 x 12

deep full range weighted dips 1 x 9
tricep pushdowns 1 x 13
Rope pushdowns 1 x 14
Reverse D ring pulley kick backs 1 x 14

Weighted crunches with a plate behind head 1 x 50 (feet on bench)
Pulley crunches 1 x 40

I went for a run for two miles. The humidity was really high. I was sweating like I was in the desert.

Heading to New York City tomorrow for an over night mini vacation. The hotel said they can give me a free pass to a top shelf gym but I'm not working out. I thought maybe just cardio. I have run in Central park in the past but I think this trip is just nothing but pleasure. Seeing a concert in Madison Square Garden. After that I'll hit a bar or two enjoying the night.

In before a juice head says bodybuilding drugs had nothing to do with it. Of course it's good for your health to take a cocktail of varied drugs to look cosmetically buff only to lose it once your clean for months.

Saw the doc this past Friday and was given the go ahead to up the training (but not the weight).  Sooo...Yesterday I did 21 sets of back, 12 sets of biceps and 10 sets of forearms. 

Will rest today and train tomorrow.  I am trying hard to lose my perma-bulker look (think early Draper but not as massive!) and that will take time.   I feel pretty good today but then I am listening to the beautiful and talented Diana Krall... Grin

Sorry I am not familiar with your medical situation except for the leg talk. Hope you will be back soon. 21 sets of back is a hell of a lot of sets so I assume your health is relatively okay. Just keep hitting it and if an exercise hurts don't use it even if it was a favorite in the past.

 I bitch a lot because my mind is willing but my body seems really fragile at times. I'm always injuring myself but it goes with aging if you are training like you're in your 20's. I was doing power cleans yesterday and my left hamstring felt like if I wasn't careful it would rip. I felt pain and tightness.

I also noticed my response to training isn't nearly as good as when I was younger. I could literally get into decent cardio shape in two weeks of training when I was younger. 4 months away from running? No problem. I would hit the road hard for two weeks and the improvement was drastic. Last year I ran for about 6 months to be able to run 5 miles faster than a crawl.  Same with lifting.

Incredibly unsafe. The tourist resorts are relatively okay if you stay there and don't wander into the towns. Mexico city you will get mugged or kidnapped if you are an American. You have a huge target on your back and everyone will know you are a gringo from the US. The Marines in California are banned from going to Mexico. The Police are so corrupt they will arrest an American on a made up charge and release you with a lot of cash. It's kidnapping by the Police never mind the vicious gangs and organized crime there.

Ever have one of those days where you just don't want to work out?  I'm lying in bed facebooking and getbigging instead of hitting back. Going to get off now and get that first warm up set over with.  It's a double today. Back and cardio. I hate one set to failure. It's so damn stressful. Two more days of this and I'm going to multiple sets again.
36  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Treadmills. on: July 13, 2014, 10:04:48 AM
I have seen it time after time in a gym. I guy walks at a normal stride in the gym walking to a treadmill. He then gets on the machine and walks slower than he did to get to the treadmill. WTF?

 Unless you are walking close to 4.0 miles per hour on an incline why not just go for a walk?

Are you sure that is a picture of Draper today? That book store picture looks like about 10 plus years ago.
38  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Shotgun!!!! on: July 12, 2014, 06:31:52 PM
I can shoot a handgun between good and excellent depending if I have been practicing. Slugs in a shot gun with rifle sights I'm proficient with. A shotgun shooting at clays I really stink at. The problem is when I miss never know what I did wrong cause I don't know where the shot went. I would love to have a side by side like this but I would have to hit the lottery.
39  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Sh*t talker boxer finally gets a beating!! on: July 12, 2014, 03:34:42 PM
for those of you who don't know, CHARLIE Z is mentally ill (severely). possibly schizophrenic. he is completely delusional. he should be committed for life or sent to prison. he's unstable and a danger to society. the only reason he stays relevant is because the boxing community is unable to see his mental health issues and cognize the fact that he should just be left alone.

the more damage charlie z takes to the dome, the more fucked up and delusional he will get.

So I'm reading between the lines. He will get hurt and sue because he is mental. Then his lawyer and him will drive away in luxury cars to the airport to go on top shelf vacations.

The 870 & Mossberg 500 are your basic entry level shotguns. Cheap, reliable, easy to fix.
Lot of people buy aftermarket shit for them for various reasons.
I have both. Now they're collecting dust.

I shoot a lot of sporting clays and moved towards semi autos and over/unders. Have semi auto Berttas & Brownings.

870 is an excellent choice as a self defense shotgun. I know someone involved in the clay sports wouldn't pick that shotgun.  Shooting clays is another animal concerning shotguns.  I always wanted a side by side but the cost is through the roof.

Who is this idiot that thinks he can fight with real fighters?  That delusional fool needs to be hurt real bad so he can learn some humility. Until that happens he's going to continue to think he can fight.  Hope he tries that in a MMA gym where there is less rules.

If Wolf didn't have so much attention on his calves he would have been Mr. Olympia. Coleman calves weren't that great but they were much better than Wolf's.  Wolf is an amazing bodybuilder.

ok guys on way to jersey shore weeks vaca'old timer knows area long beach island....i will be 46 tomm july 13..see ya soon ....tanned/ripped lol look out milfs,,,,

Happy birthday! Yes I know the area well. Exit 63 for State Highway 72 east.  Beautiful area full of really expensive real estate. I guess you're renting a house for the week by the beach? Check out the light house and see if your legs are good enough to get you to the top with out breaking a sweat.  Grin Did you know whales have been spotted in the general area 3 years in a row? If you like jazz a really good college group makes summer money in the various restaurants and ice cream palors there. If you want I can find the location, date and time. I know the saxophone player.

In 20 years they will be voting in Muslims into office and they will allow Sharia law to prevail. This flood of immigration has to stop with deportations and zero financial support from the government.
45  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Shotgun!!!! on: July 12, 2014, 05:15:17 AM
Beretta 391 is a brilliant gun as well. I won 3 of them at various national Sporting Clays competitions in the US as a kid. I love semi-autos.

You must know your shotguns if you competed. I will check the Beretta out.
46  Getbig Bodybuilding Boards / Training Q&A / Re: The Mature thread on: July 12, 2014, 05:13:33 AM
I think this is a good method for us older Trainers. I used this before to spur a muscle Group into new growth. The Volume is low in most workouts and would maybe appeal to guys like Oldtimer because itīs easier on the Joints than Heavy Duty workouts.. while keeping Training time down.
http://www.amazon.com/Train-grow-positions-flexion-muscle-training/dp/0962783447

I am familiar with Steve Holman's thoughts on lifting. He was a HIT guy and a low set guy forever as reflected in his magazine articles and books.  Now he has changed into a volume guy and said he believes this the right way to train.  He believes in general the use of 4 sets of 10 with short rests in between sets with only the last set closing in on failure. He changed his position from HIT to volume talking to guys like David Young who told him his observations from working out with some of the biggest stars of the classic period of Gold's gym. Young told him about such stars as Danny Padilla who experimented with Heavy Duty but got better results with 5 sets of 12 reps in general with moderate weights.

The Remington 870 is a legendary shotgun. If you get the Wingmaster version. The wood and the metal look 1st rate. The economical Express 870 while using cheaper wood and the mental doesn't have a great finish operationally it works perfect. There are so many out there that any option you can think of is easily available. With hard cast Brenneke slugs you could hunt any big game in America within 125 yards or so with a 870 with a smooth bore. Those slugs also have been used in Africa.

 The 870 was the standard police shotgun forever but now it seems many top shelf Police departments are going to the Benelli auto. The action takes a lot of the sting out of shooting heavy loads out of it. It's relatively easy to get good groupings with standard slugs with it's smooth bore with it's rifle sights. The smooth bore allows you to switch between buckshot and slugs.  It also never has jammed on me.

When is the fight? I give Canelo all the credit for not ducking anyone. I predict Lara is going to win this fight. He is a top shelf fighter and no one wants to fight him. I am really surprised that Canelo let this fight be made.
49  Getbig Bodybuilding Boards / Training Q&A / Re: The Mature thread on: July 11, 2014, 02:36:05 PM
Trained legs today. No cardio. I must have done something to my neck and trap training chest and biceps yesterday. Feeling pain. My wife works in the office of a chiropractor. I haven't been to one in decades. I told the doc my trap and neck are giving me pain. He sends in this 110lb woman massage therapist in to massage the area. It was a deep tissue massage. Sadly no happy ending. LOL. After the massage he came back and gave my neck a couple twists and I swear I feel better.

Yesterday after I finished my chest and bicep workout I did an interval workout on the treadmill. After warm up I did 8 x 400 meters with a 200 meter fast walk rest interval in between sets. It felt great. I haven't been able to do speed work for a long time due to injuries and almost every 400 meter set I increased the speed. The last lap was in 6:59 mile pace. I know that's nothing special but just being able to do that is a victory for me. Every interval day I hope to keep bringing down my times. Tomorrow I will do a 5 miler but now that intervals are back in my arsenal I feel my times are going to drop quickly when I race a charity 5k road race.
50  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Who has the greatest muscle builder genes, NFL or the Mr O? on: July 11, 2014, 11:15:45 AM
The only bodybuilder who played in the NFL that I know of was Mike Katz for the NY Jets. He was injured I believe the year before the Super Bowl win. 

Lou Ferrigno and the power lifter Bill Kazmaier both tried to play pro but couldn't cut it. There is rumors about someone being interested in Casey Viator but I don't believe it.

I was by the NY Giants when they were training on their practice field. The are monsters. Bigger than any pro bodybuilder that I have ever seen. They were explosive and incredibly fast. Bodybuilders are bloated drug muscles and should never be confused with these elite athletes.
