    and not to continue on with politics and cloud this log, but the headlines today:

    holy wow man.
    great tactic there, mr. president.
    your incredible focus on pertinent issues has no equal.

    anyway - Kleen, glad you laffed along.
    lol on the vid..seen a few ppl like that in my time.




    training today: none, rest

    interesting meals i been having lately.
    last night for supper, i had:
    5oz lean beef
    3oz black forest ham
    3oz roast beef
    1/2 cup jasmine rice (Matt Porter inspired the jasmine rice..yum love the stuff)
    625cals

    <4500cals i put down yesterday -- and weight dint change one bit>


    for breakfast today, was:
    5oz lean beef
    1 cup frosted mini-wheats + 6oz almond milk
    then, the shake: 1 scoop isolate + 1/2 cup cottage cheese + 1/4 cup oats, in 10oz of water.
    nice lil 650cal meal there, delicious and nutritious and well-balanced.

    oh...and dem walking DB lunges yesterday -- they tore me up!
    (in a good way)


  2. Just jumped on the Jasmine wagon myself...heavenly!!

    Don't wanna derail but that was several months ago at my absolute best at the end of my cut. Body fat measuring is always iffy for me and I like to go by the mirror. With that said it was 6-7% based on Skin Folds, so prob 7-9ish. Was real dry and lean but was definitely more I could have shaved off if I was to approach competition levels IMO.

    huh. well, i wouldn't have drawn that comparison myself, but yeah it's pretty apt.
    stuff is nice and moist, buttery-tasting w/o even adding butter.


    well guys - me thinx i'm gonna try some upper body work tomorrow, kick lower body back to FRI, and start setting up for month #2 in the program.
    no DB tho, will stick with BB to ease in.
    i'm ready..been kinda stir-crazy w/o the upper body action.

    Me thinks you might be displaying your OCD. Hold of the rest of the week you can do it. Exercise your discipline that you have with food for your decision to save your body. Just because it doesn't hurt with a lack of stressing it doesn't mean it isn't still going to be sensitive to re-inflaming Give it the week, and know you gave it proper rest. THink about it after a week you can come back and grow more with less weight and step up slowly, more points of adaptation via progressive overload equals more growth. Let it ride the week out. Heal it. Just like with a sore muscle you dont want to hit it the moment it stops hurting you want to hit it when it is recovered. Just my $.02 from one old man to another.

  10. good points Chris, surely. i appreciate the contribution.
    (love the from one old man to another bit too lol)
    i don't really feel i'm making a reckless decision tho - if i went back to DB and tried slinging heavy weight again like nothing ever happened, i'm sure it could resurface with a quickness. i've been diligent in my treatment, and posing/squeezing to put pressure on the area & surrounding tendons/structural support feels notably different. if this was a chronic condition, i would certainly agree and err on the side of caution..but, i've never really had elbow issues, so i don't think there is reason to continue to avoid.
    just my thoughts..
    obviously, if i feel any kind of discomfort, i can pull back once again. and, i will avoid dips (weighted or otherwise) for a few days yet, to assess.
    but i feel i am ready for some basic work.

    once again - thanks for looking out. i do really appreciate it.

  11. Some food porn for you bubba..

  12. Sounds like a solid thought process, I am sure you will be on the look out for signs of stress on it. No dips is a good idea and no more than 90 degrees on triceps extensions first week back in would be a good idea to to keep from over-stretching it under the stress of weight. I am sure you know all these things but doesn't hurt to be reminded.

    Oh wow, is the salsa homemade? I am not normally a big fan of pineapple with my meats but dayum that looks and sounds good. I love mango habanero sauce and not a fan of mango by itself either so this may be right up my alley.

  14. @ Kleen - i may not even do any tri extensions for a few more days..just keep to some simple incline BB/cable pulldown to front, pronated grip/standing military and maybe some standing BB curls first couple times, see how it goes.

    @ AZ - oh wow my friend.
    yummy.
    (glad i just ate)

  15. Not home made...from costco and all natural/gluten free

    Sounds good on that workout. Tomorrow is my high rep light day. I do 15-20 reps, start with 3 sets of isolation exercise with no elbow movement to pre-exhaust then 2 sets of a compound movement for each body part to finish it off. It gives my elbows a nice rest while obliterating the actual body part.

    Don't AZ but I'm looking for new chicken recipes as I'm not a huge fan of chicken. Hoe long and what temp do u bake them at? I'm getting sick of mine grilled. Lol moving back to tilapia and angus beef for a week or two. Any insight on some juicy chicken I'm all ears

  18. as it was written, so it came to pass.

    awoke in a foul mood this morning - stayed up late to watch the DET-OAK game, just to see my Tigers wrap the series up..led the whole game, up 3-1 in the 9th only to watch freakin closer (?) valverde blow it in less than 5min.
    so, had some fuel for the early morn workout, and a good one it was.

    very basic, did some incline BB bench alternated with cable pulldowns (pronated), 6 sets working pyramid up in weights/down in reps. started at 225x12 on the incline BB, just feeling things out, ended at 325x4 -- elbow felt solid thruout! no issues at all.
    moved to standing military presses, did 5 straight sets @135x8, again just working back into things, dint want to push.
    ended with some direct ab work (almost forgot what this was like been so long lol)..no arm movements this day.
    just a very nice day in the weight room, very pleased..nice to have teh chest a bit swole again.

  19. Damn young man..325 on incline!

    was really pretty ridiculous the ease with which i got it too..and, there was no poor form. i take these suckers down to where my neck meets the very top of my chest.
    DB might have been smashing up the elbows (i think it was weighted dips too contributing, prolly the weighted pull-ups as well)..
    but - dem DBs sure do make strength go up.

  21. I agree totally. For total functional strength,DBs have it covered. My bitch is that I workout at home and the biggest mine go to are 95s. Makes for high rep sets.

  22. price of DBs sure has gone up..i bought most of mine new, when they were 50 cents/lb or less (think my first pair of 'good ones' was @ 33 cents/lb).
    haven't added to my supply in yrs, too expensive.

    nothing wrong with higher reps bro - some self-protection from elbow issues there.

    plus - shorter rest periods and higher reps would be my preference, in a perfect world.

    all kinds of ways to work around limited weights (not trying to preach to the choir here..you obviously know what you're doing)

  23. Oh no doubt...and drop sets will take care of business also.

    boom! exactly.
    biggest DBs i have are 125s - and they're collecting dust in the corner right now..

    on a random note - considering my next approach after i run this freak protocol out..was thinking of applying some DC principles.
    i'm still bent on gaining some strength before my next show-prep begins.

  25. You older gents sure keep my ass motivated!!!! Killer workout snags. Keep inspiring!

    On another note
    I bet that series was a tough one to watch being a Tigers fan! Being an Oakland fan through and through I enjoyed it!
    Having played college ball as a catcher it was tough to watch them blow that series no matter who I was rooting for.
    Keep killing it snags
