Dudes and dudettes of GET BIG . Ol' Howie is completely burned on any serious hardcore training/diet efforts or contest plans. I think the gym is fun,mags are fun (like MD). shows are fun and this board is often fun. But when I think of doing any sustained serious diet or contest prep, well I just want to cut a big, fat fart Grin
I am pretty happy and healthy overall, but find it near impossible to take the contest end of this wacky sport serious( for me NOT as a fan) for any extended length of time. I find it kinda ironic how I actually ENJOY watching shows now, MORE  than ever Huh Any others like this?

Maybe I am finally an old fart.
Don't laugh , but I actually enjoy running (in my case ploding slowly) local 5k/10k races MORE than serious bodybuilding training. The hell of it is life is more fun than ever and my old low back pains are rare now.

I have not competed in just over 10 years now, and in that time by life kept getting better  overall...go figure Wink I would like to drop some fat ,I mean water and bulk hehehe and get some better abs. BUt other than that I could care less about any serious PERSONAL bodybuilding  goals. Keepin' it real, what can I say.

Howie, you think too much.  Go mix yourself a few margaritas, nail the wife, then get on getbig and start a flame war with someone.  you will see that's way more fun than thinking so much.

LOL< sounds good, but sex, ice cream and cookies  are my thing not the  booze Cheesy
Actually this burn out has been  comming on gradually for years now and I finally accept it.
I am happy guy lately, content with life, my marriage and my career, etc
Bodybuilding never worked out for me  as anything other than a wacky fun hobby, who cares hehehe.
Overall I am kinda glad I gave it a somewhat serious shot for a period in my life.

Hey 240, any more info on the PDI show in NYC this fall?

"What does your daddy do, Baby Z?"
"He spends all day arguing on the internet!"

"My daddy can own your daddy on getbig."

Diet is  mostly good food and whey pro drinks but some junk for good measure, etc.
My training is mostly Hammer machines these days, avg once per week on a body part and I enjoy running slowly  for an hr about 3 days a week.Seriously I feel GREAT and overall my health is quite good. I simply have no personal motivation to get back into contests, that is about it. THAT used to bug me, now, I am like "whatever".

Just name the kid Shari...  works for a boy or a girl!

Damn , that is one fine idea and gives the kid a multi cultural thing going too.
Craig or Kelly are good choices  too, ya want the kid to have the right role models ya know

You animal!  Ya know maybe I am just too lazy these days or something. I just don't want to spend my own $$ to get on stage and put on a show  for others or  care about trying to impress  others. Plus, any time I ever get really ripped and did well, I felt like complete crap overall.
Running and pumping on the various machines feels good along with eating good, tasty food and getting a nut.

You might get confused and think I am a really serious guy, but that is a common mistake , sorry
