  1. I think Chris you have reached a point in your relationship where it doesn't matter what you're doing and you're having a good time with your spouse. No need for things like clubs.

    If I was married I'd never ever go to a club ever again. I don't see any point, unless its something you enjoy doing. The whole "scene" is pretty crappy, at least that's the case up north here.

    My wife and I love to get fancied up and hit the town. We get to see a lot of people that we haven't seen for awhile and it helps to break up the monotony of every day life. AND we love to dance!

    My thread isn't company related at all. I'm no rep or anything lol. The thread is purely anabolic and would love to have you in it.
    Yeah that is why I don't go to clubs unless we are going with a group of friends to go dancing.

    Absolutely, although we both enjoy dancing and doing a little grinding can make for a fun night so we do like to go out every once in a while.

    The scene isn't great but the enjoyment of the activity if you like to dance doesn't go away. Just have to pick when to go and having a group of friends makes it nicer.

    Absolutely, but now we do things like go to dinner, find a spot with some live music. Places where most "punks" don't frequent. We also like to go to the theater to see plays or dance companies perform. We used to think it was to expensive but in reality the tickets and dinner don't really cost much more than a night at the club if at all.

    Good news, I woke this morning and my dry weight was 203.7 looking pretty lean... Will take my progress pics tomorrow morning and use whatever I weigh in at tomorrow for my weight since last week I was 203.9 on Sunday and 205 on Monday... Going to go do some cardio here in a bit.

  5. You can do that at home too then you don't have far to go to relieve the pressure. Course with kids that might be a challenge

  6. Yeah and not quite the same energy at home there is something to be said for the energy of being out on the town. It is more about being selective about where we go.

  7. Well I almost forgot to update my workout from yesterday since I am already on here. I decided to veer from my normal workout and do a lift with the wife. We decided to do upper body, and I just added in a little extra arm and shoulders at the end to make sure I gave them appropriate attention.

    I just felt like basics and pushing a little weight.

    Flat Bench - 135x8, 175x8, 225x8, 275x7 - not too bad for cutting. I haven't done regular flat bench in a bit and haven't even come close to putting up 275 in a while so I was happy with this, actually a few more reps than I expected at 275 for it having been so long.

    Hammer Strength High Rows (weight per side) - 90x8, 135x8, 160x8, 180x8 felt good and hadn't worked this angle in a while so definitely happy with the performance getting 4 plates per side x8.

    Standing Barbell Shoulder Press - 95x8, 135x8, 165x8, 185x5 - Again I had not done thise in quite some time so was pretty happy with 185x5 on the last set. Almost got the 6th rep but only 2/3rd of the way up. Not a safe exercise to really try to push through a sticking point in my opinion...

    Biceps - started with DB Hammer Curls 25x20 to warm up the area.
    EZ Bar Curls - 100x8 for 3 sets.

    Dips - BW+45x8, BW+90x8, BW+115x8, BW+135x7 - Felt good, not bad after the bench, and the shoulder press. Was pretty happy with the numbers.

    Rear Delt Flies on straight arm pec deck - 70x35 x 3 sets - This is actually an improvement over my last few efforts on this. I did not even have to do an RP to complete the final set.

    Heavy Partial Side Raises from bottom - 55x35 > 40x20 > top 2/3 partials 15x20 - Holy sh!t this was a beast I just decided drop sets would be the fastest way to finish off the shoulders and make sure I got the medials toasty! Changing the last drop set to top end partials added a whole new realm of WTF to the set!!!

    Superset for Biceps and Triceps finishers

    Supinated DB Curls 30x10, 30x10, 30x10 with one RP to complete.
    Triceps Push Ups BWx20, BWx20, DB Overhead Triceps Ext 65x18 - I wanted to cap off the triceps with a little overhead action ofter thrashing them with the triceps push ups of which the second set was brutal. I fought like an SOB to try for 19 but could barely move the DB, actually had to lean to the side and kind of roll it over the top of my shoulder to be able to put it back down. Total failure!!!! Was awesome. My arms looked like balloons at the end of this.

    All in all this was a GREAT impromtu workout. I am feeling the workout a little in my joints today but not bad at all. Was well worth it and a nice break from what I had been doing. Monday we go right back to the original plan as I really enjoy the mountain dog training. This was just a nice shock to the system.

    Ha it is over 1/4 of my carbs. Fats are a bit higher than yours. It tastes amazing cottage cheese cooks nicely just like in lasagna.

  16. Mmmmm... taco seasoning.
    Where it all started

    http://anabolicminds.com/forum/35-older/217572-one-can-never.html

  17. Yeah so long as not having issues with sodium taco seasoning is a nice go to for spicing up bland things, that and of course cajun seasoning. I use the Slap Ya Mama "HOT" version.

    So this morning was a bust on the pictures and my weight was very confusing to me. Only thing I can figure is A the house shifted quite a bit due to all the rain and B, the dairy yesterday may have had me retain some water. Either way the scale was showing between 206.8 and 207.2 lbs. Yesterday as mentioned I was 203.8 upon waking and looking pretty ripped. I looked pretty lean in the mirror this morning too but for some reason all of my pics came out completely blurry this morning. Quad veins were visible upon waking, and my lower abdomen has some veins showing also. Right now I am looking pretty good but need to retake pics. I will actually see coach this weekend when I got to Dallas for the Europa Fitness Expo he will be there competing but I am going to try to make sure I get with him since he is the reason I am heading up that way to support him. He is trying to get his Pro Card in Physique.

    On to the lift this morning. I didn't have my regular workout log with me. I was still a bit discombobulated from the G8 I took last night and walked out without it. Hadn't taken it in a bit so I slept in about 10 minutes then was in kind of a rush. Good news is that once I fell asleep it was good sleep and when I got up to go to the restroom I fell right back to sleep. So here is how my leg day went and I was feeling pretty strong. I remembered my numbers from before so I happen to know I went up on pretty much everything but the Leg Press which is about as high as I want to go for now.

    Lying Leg Curls Back Up Hips Down - 45x20, 55x20, 85x15, 115x12, 135x10>115x25 low end partials - up from 120x10

    Stiff Leg Dead Lifts w/ 25s for increased ROM - 145x10, 195x10, 345x10, 395x9 - BOOM! last time was only up to 345x10 pushed it hard today gave myself a tiny bit of a lower back pump. Time to introduce the taurine I have kept just in case.

    Leg Press w/ 3 second negatives - 550x10, 730x10, 820x10, 910x10 - Was nice and hard had to spot myself with my hands on last rep. Almost puked while unloading the machine from all of the intensity...

    DC Quad Stretch 60 seconds x 2

    Hack Squat w/ 3 second negatives - 225x10, 315x10, 315x10 > 185x15 w/ 1-2 second pauses at bottom - man I was dying with this one. I really didn't think I was going to make it through but just kept willing myself too. Last time my heavy set was 295.

    DC Quad Stretch 60 seconds x 2

    He has been pretty hectic with a lot of modeling, the coaching business, and multiple shows he has done recently. I am hoping he rocks it also. I know one thing though, with the changes we just made fat is going to just fall off of me. Things are about to get FREAKY!!!!

    Yeah they have been pretty dramatic so far but probably could have been a little quicker. These new adjustments are basically his effort to get us ahead of the game or to me get me to the point I would feel more comfortable at. I was hoping to be a little leaner by now. Could just be me but I would have been happy to be about 1-2% further along at this point. So now we are pushing the pace so to speak in order to get us there before so we aren't rushing in the end.

  28. The scale doesn't always make sense with what you are seeing in the mirror I know. If you're seeing definite changes though then the gains are probably good news.

    Yes an no, now is not the time for gains. To be on the schedule I wanted to be I should be about 8% right now and I am about 9.5-10%. Now is the time for cutting not a recomp speed. Not saying I am behind the 8 ball, just not on the schedule I intended to be on.

    That being said I am consistently getting good comments at the gym. The "Wow really leaning up..." and "Man you are getting big!" are coming pretty regularly. Most of the comments are regarding my arms and shoulders which is great since I have been working on bringing them up so I am very happy about that. Workouts have been going very well and today's lift was no exception to that.

    As you can see my weights went up on my HS Wide Chest Press and my Incline BB Press. The 4/4/2 Flies were new so no reference there but I tore that ish up! Lateral Raise Partials on the machine were heavier than last time I did them, and I did better on my ROpe Extensions and CG Bench.

    I looked like a monster by the time it was all said and done. My chest shoulders and triceps were pumped like mad and had me looking VERY large!

    Last night I did 30 minutes LISS on the elliptical before dinner.
