I know smile. I'm adding a scoop of a very yummy tasting fruit powder to it, so hopefully it will help.

My regular kale, carrot, yam, broccoli, and garlic juice wouldn't be considered potable to anyone I know, so here's hoping I'm at least semi-prepared.

T minus 30 minutes until ingestion....

Today I finished up my last Dead Lift session for this cycle and got to 315 lbs before calling it quits. Not a personal best compared to my power lifting days but itís getting up there and is almost exactly 2x my body weight. Not to shabby for an old man with a ruptured lumbar disk. Next stop 350 lbs.

Iím also on track to make my goals of 250 lbs Full Squat and 200 lbs Flat Bench this week. Though Iím not going to make my goal of 160 lbs body weight, probably only going to make 159 but got close.

Nice work Dean. I always liked to be able to lift double my body weight as I thought that it was a nice benchmark to achieve smile

Sadly, I have been mostly just jogging, having a hard time with allowing myself enough me time to get in 3 runs a week let alone weights.

Thanks Jay, it is a nice benchmark and with the added ďcoolnessĒ factor of being 3 x 45 lbs plates on each side. One of my ďrewardsĒ for make it is to go out and buy another set of 45s though I actually have enough miscellaneous weights to go over 400 right now.

Well youíre doing much more running than me. Iíve only put foot to pavement about 3 times in the last four months and re-realized quickly that my body still wonít tolerate lifting and running at the same time. Iím trying to incorporate a little HIIT at the end of each workout to keep my cardio from totally tanking, and to help get the blood flowing through my muscles again. Seems to be working even though Iím doing a very limited amount. So far my heart rate and BP havenít gone up which is a good sign.

I figure I have one more bulking cycle left in me before I might have to start to cut. I just wish most of my body fat didnít have to make itís way to my belly.

Bulking and running don't mix but the HIIT is an excellent substitute for endurance conditioning while trying to bulk up. I can relate all to well to the fat concern

Well I made my strength goals for this cycle by getting the Hat Trick, Triple Crown . . . 315 lbs Dead Lift, yesterday 200 lbs Bench and today 250 lbs Full Squat. Iíve already figured out the exercises for my next cycle, just have to decide on how to organize them for the best results. Now time for a much needed 7-10 days off to let my poor tendons and ligaments in my arms catch up and recover. Iíll take measurements again tomorrow to see if Iíve gained anything since I measured a couple weeks ago.

The only goal I didnít make was total body weight. I was shooting for 160 lbs but will only make 159 lbs by the end of this week.

Loc: It's all about the location.
I found when I was lifting weights, I also had a problem with my wasteline. Ended up really bulking up around the shoulders, pecs arms ect...but the waste never changed much, probably should have targeted it more I guess.

Cam, I've been experimenting with juicing lately. From what I'm reading you have a good juicer (the screw type, not the centrifugal blade juicer) so the juice doesn't heat up and oxygen doesn't get beat into the pulp. They can also juice greens better...

I have a centrifugal, started doing beets, carrots, celery, apples, etc. It was great. But...I had to set aside 15-20 minutes to clean, chop, juice, drink, then clean 8 juicer parts in the sink. Started to get fed up with that, especially since I wanted to juice a few times a day.

I was looking at green smoothies that keep all the fiber so it actually fills you up (juice makes me even hungrier). So then I saw the Blendtec and Vitamix's. A friends dad had a vitamix, showed it to me, tasted some good stuff. So I found a deal on a referb Blendtec unit and TADA! I love it, very easy to clean and use. Dump everything in, and press a button. Smoothie!

Do you juice only weekly and do something crazy (like your garlic juice?!) or do you juice daily? Perhaps we could swap some recipes laugh

I used to have some German juicer that sounded like a jet turbine when it wound up to 10,000 rpm. It was great fun but eventually I grew tired of cleaning the thing and put it away to gather dust. (I don't want to discourage anyone from juicing.)

Lately I'm thinking of doing pistacio nuts. Apparently they're very heart-healthy, according to Consumer Reports.

I never lift anything other than heavy speakers and subwoofers (the EP500 is the maximum; I had to rest for a day after unpacking and packing an EP600. . .).

Jogging is great for keeping weight off and I did it until I was in my early forties. Knee problems arose so I stopped, but my heartbeat at rest was 52 per minute back then.

Now I'm trying to walk 6 miles per week, which is hard to do in the winter. An obese friend of mine (a car and AV journalist in his early forties) is thinking of moving to California so he can walk and excercise more.

Cheers,
Alan
