the chick thing...suprising not really...

the food thing...i think you could use 1- 2 protein and veggie snacks

the training thing...post your joint rotations workout plz...
don't stretch area's that already have flexibility...too much cardio before wts for me...ab reps are far too high, try harder variations that allow only 15 reps maximum...too much calf focus which are 95% genetic...too mnay machines...the one you don't know the name of are Hyperextensions and promise me you'll never do them again unless you want back issues...

do you know how to and / or deadlift??

My football season starts on the 18th of this month, and I am also trying to get my head ready for the season opener too. so a lot of mental going on inside right now , new business start up, season about to start, and trying to challenge myself and get down to around 250 - 260 by spring. ( I want to look good enough to be on my own sports show LOL .... ) Well that is all I got for today.

Swanso5, thanks for the tips I appreciate them ( even if I might not follow them all) I certainly apreciate the input and knowledge you share. Thank you .

Now ladies, where the hell are those inspiration photos ??????? help a fella out !

Sorry I am late, was just to tired and brain was full last night to get to this ...

No workout again on Friday, I was at a convention all day and walked a thousand, gazillion , miles though it seems ...

Breakfast, Protein shake

Lunch, cobb salad ( the only thing at the convention center restaurant worth eating I didn't want the pizza or the pasta ! and NO it was not organic unfortunately)

Snack, 100 calorie bar from nutter butter heeh I love those things !

Dinner, A dish from the Philippines that my wife makes . A soup type of dish with a vegetable called upo, with ginger ( fresh sliced) and ground Turkey, and spinach, and some chinese greens I can't even pronounce ( one day I will figure those out I guess) . anyway it is some damn good soup! had two bowls of it and some low fat " Cheeze - It "brand snack crackers

Then had a couple peanut butter and jelly sandwiches to end the night with while watching some tube and trying to allow my mind to consume all the information I took in over the last couple days of work!

well for the legs, I do the machines cause I am worried about squatinng heavy on my knees .


and for the upper body stuff, I have a broken finger LOL so it is hard to grip and stabalize so most of the stuff I do, I do open handed. ( that is why I use my body for my biceps) I use one hand to curl with the other pushing down for resistance, I will take some pics of everything this week and get them online .
