I have to admit i have always really looked at Bodybuilders like Steve Reeves and Frank Zane for inspiration. always liked more of a symmetrical look. Size at all costs has never really been my main goal. In fact i used weight training for a long time to supplement my martial arts training. I still go more for a muscled but shaped look as for "supplements" i have never botherd with them and because of my illness i can't digest them well..if i drink a protein shake i run to the bathroom. I have met some guys who have a big ego with their big muscles but since i saw a small boned guy put a big weight trained Rugby player in a Judo strangle hold and he was helpless i realized it's not everything. I work on being fit for as long as i can. I use everything i can, running, weights, always mixing it up.

so today i had a relaxing swim at the local pool. nice whirpool that really relaxes you. No weight training today. If i had the time i would swim more often because i feel tired now but refreshed.

The gym where I go has a large Olympic sized indoor pool. I enjoy swimming laps there, but don't do it as often as I should. There was a time in my life when I swam laps almost everyday for a half hour or so. It really helps keep one fit.

one of the reasons i do not buy muscle mags anymore is that they are just full of supplement ads. OK some are ok i understand that but now itīs just making big bucks out of the dreams of young people. I know this has always been so but now itīs got worse.

Lateral raises 4x12 superset with
Barbell press4x10

bent over laterals 4x12 superset with

This photo is for Karen. I was 29 when I had nasal reconstruction to correct a deviated septum. In this photo, I look like I was the loser in a fight. I think this is before the doctor took the packing out of my nose.

also got to tonight write a CV for a job with my son. A new Gym will open near us and my son wants to learn to be a Fitness Trainer, experience he has but you need that piece of paper to do the job.. over here itīs a "B" licence. I got it too and it means nothing but you have to have the qualification here.. the gym is looking to train people and qualify them. costs a lot to do the seminars.
