So for the last few days, my knee cap is sore. I can't exactly call it pain. Maybe some nerves have reconnected already. I continue to do the doctor prescribed exercises. I am doing them in sets now rather then each hour. The crutches are a total pain at this point. Without them I can almost walk with a normal gait. With them, I hang my right leg off behind me like I am a wounded deer.

I mentioned hitting the gym and saw horror on my wife and daughter's face. I see no reason why I cannot do upper body work. Especially if it is seated exercises.

Working out is a big part of my life. This imposed recovery is killing me. I am so bored. I keep thinking of things to do and then worry I will be fucking up my recovery if I do them.

so Today i went for a run in the Woods. I was joined by a Dog in the Woods who ran along side me most of the way...was funny. was tempted to take it home with me. was some ones pet and not stray because it looked well kept and wore a collar. I might look into getting a Little Dog. I want Funk's Husky.. Grin perfect size.

In the event you all thought I'd expired, I have not.

Knee recovery is going well. Still doing at least 100 leg raises and 100 extensions every day, probably more. I've all but abandoned the crutches because, well, they are a total pain in the ass. My gait is near normal. Trying to walk like a truck driver with a watermelon between his legs just to look butch. LOL!

Yesterday I did something very stupid without thinking. For reasons I won't go into here, I was standing on a low wall in my backyard taking photos of my roof cap vents and jumped off the wall. After some moments of panic, I realized my knee was good.

My daughter who has been here helping us get by while I recover is going home to El Paso, TX on Thursday. I only hope I didn't make her feel her willingness to take care of her aging parents was wasted.

I am thinking of hitting the gym. I see no reason why I cannot do upper body exercises. I'll wait to do anything which impacts my knee until I get an okay from the doctor. Truth be told, I am so incredibly bored. A big piece of my routine is centered around the time at the gym exercising.

On a plus note, I am presently wearing some 34" jeans which have been too tight to be comfortable for awhile. They are not only comfortable, but there is room to spare around the waistband. 32" inch jeans won't fit over my quads without a struggle. Steve, look out, I am going to own your leg development pretty soon. I am holding at about 199 to 200 lbs.

On another note, I needed some more syringes to inject my weekly dose of testosterone cypionate. The pharmacy that fills my prescription for test wouldn't sell me the syringes without a prescription, which is not a problem since I am doing everything on the up and up. As it turns out, this is not a federal or state law, but a company policy. I was able to get the syringes at a different pharmacy. Now I am looking to move the prescription for test to this pharmacy which is the pharmacy of choice anyway.

I am so impressed with the posts in the Mature thread. Everyone here seems focused on staying fit and not on all the crap that goes on throughout the rest of Getbig. Thank you a hundred fold for starting this thread, Donny. You're the man!

Prime, difference is most people posting in this thread have posted their pics and proven to be real people so they don't have to live up to some anonymous online reputation. Most people here lead normal lives and enjoy working out. Glad to see this thread has stayed the course. So far Ken has proven to be a nice addition to the bunch.

Well the reverse hits top forearm only Donny. You may need to go to some direct work on barbell or DB to beef up the the underside. I see so many BB with huge biceps no forearms = non symmetrical.

know what your saying but using a thumbless grip i also engage the belly of the forearm and i do supinated chins. I have never liked wrist curls or reverse wrist curls to work my forearms(arms supported). I would normally agree on any other bodypart but for me Reverse ez bar curls standing or over a preacher bench. Look at Steve's arms and he does overhand wrist roller...his lower arms are HUGE.

I am not understanding if you dont have the underside forearms you got to do direct work for them reverse only hits top. Steve probably has good genes for forearms. Reverse is not going to hit friend.

the ez bar puts you in a Position positive for forearm work with a reverse grip. Think of the Hand Position thumbless. the angle hits inner and outside forearms.
