  1. Rosie, you are a driver that is for certain. Sometimes I have no drive at all to go to the gym. I go out of duty. Once there however, my body responds to the familiar stimulus. Often before I know what has happened I am going like hell. Pushing and straining like I had planned and looked forward to this particular workout all week. Today was one of those days. Didn't really feel much like going. If I wasn't testing out a new supplement I would not have gone. Once I got in there the body realized what it was there to do, Set PR on DB incline presses. Shoulder now hurting and paying the price. I do always enjoy it on some level. The pain of the iron erases the pain of life. It is a more than fair trade. Good work out, over all mega pump, we all know why we do it. Though most times others won't understand. I feel ya' Rosie I really do. Solidarity all the way. Hope your pains, the physical, and the walking talking pains we all have to deal with,lol are all less tomorrow.

    Have a Good Evening Friend
    I removed myself from the driver's seat some time ago, David - to allow myself to be DRIVEN (and no, it was not easy to do) by God.

    It's the times when you don't feel like it that you surprise yourself and can sometimes have the BEST sessions! Awesome on the PR

    "The pain of the iron erases the pain of life." It can help, yes, and sometimes a lot, but I don't know if it ever "erases" anything - just allows us to forget for a while, and sometimes not even that, as that pain can work itself into even training, making us a demon possessed as we push ourselves harder and further. Lately, my difficulty breathing I believe has been more than simply physiological (which it is in general because of my blood disorder), happening when I remember far too vividly the things I am trying to forget and ease the pain of by punishing my body as much as I can.

    Yes, the majority will never understand why we do what we do [let alone want to], but that's fine with me. We all have our priorities, what we hold important and dear. We all have our own lives to live.

    I have actually decided to take today OFF (so no Sunday off, as this will be this week's day off ALL training), because BOTH of my shoulders (not to mention my right knee) have been very painful all night and morning (yes, little sleep was gotten), and give them a chance to "recover" a little before I hammer everything again tomorrow.

    Despite the pain, I can wear a smile, readying myself for what is to come. Have a Blessed Tuesday, David

  3. My Obsession


    MOTIVATIONAL QUOTE OF THE DAY

    "4 simple words, DO THINGS WITH PURPOSE..." - Joey Swoll

    For the complete Motivational, review WITH PURPOSE | WPM Women.


    TRAINING

    Day OFF

    Yes, not like me to take a day off at the START of the week. That said, my right knee just kept on bugging me all night (and morning). As did the pain in both shoulders, growing through the morning (and yes, little sleep had). Took G8 at 0310 though, since I WANTED to sleep - did not get to sleep until just after 0400, but slept for a respectable five hours. Woke feeling like someone was trying to drill a hole in my head - something that has happened EVERY time I have used G8 (not just the times I have slept for hours, since a couple of times I have NOT slept), so there might be something there causing it...Anyways, not training has given me some time out and mental energy to make today highly productive...Looking forward to tomorrow though and getting back to training...David, you call me "a "driver", but I am DRIVEN: By something so very deep inside; something that refuses to die or give up or let go, and I cannot - I WILL not - ever stop doing all I can while I still have life left in me to do it!...

    For myself it has always been about obsessiion, have always been that way. I used to be almost OCD, I was afraid if I tid not remain obsessed I would not be able to maintain focus, my obsession was more of a crutch. Now I have replaced that feeling with joy .. I love this shyte.. yah I am still obsessed but it's coming from a beter place now. I still can't even entertain the idea of not training but at least I am having fun

    One thing I can do is take time off (1 week only) to rest without feeling bad about it. Planned time off is part of training for me. I will still remain active though.
    Unremarkable is no way to go through life... Doug

    Well, this life has ALWAYS been an "obsession" for me, I guess you could say, Doug. From the age of 14 years old, my life LITERALLY revolved around my sport and training and I virtually did NOTHING but sleep, train, eat, and competing (and sometime go to school, LOL) for many years! I have more BALANCE now, but I guess that comes from getting older and life and circumstances changing, but training is still as important to me as ever (really, #1 re importance in my life after God, if I am to be completely honest). As I mentioned in my MuscleChronicle Interview, "I have a negative exercise addiction. Coupled with an obsessive compulsive personality..."

    Because I only ever took ~2 weeks off training a YEAR since I started (that said, I had "easy" days and "deload" weeks, and a single day off every week in my [periodized] training), it also took me a long time to realize that YES, I COULD have more time off. That said, I can give myself a week off training every now and then, but it will become rare, since my body NEEDS the training (and besides, all the time off I've had because of injuries and Chronic Fatigue the last few years, my body has had ENOUGH rest!), and only when I feel like if I continue pushing myself the way I am it could lead to another injury (and I can't afford any MORE time out).

    Was a little tired last night, even though I didn't train yesterday, and drifted in and out of consciousness for about an hour from ~2115. Took G8 at 2223 and went to bed, passing out not long after, sleeping right through my first alarm and waking an hour later than "usual" (which is ok). Same as usual - woke feeling like someone was trying to drill through my skull, ears blocked as well (which is an interesting effect I have noticed every time I use G8 - not sure what would be causing it, though)...Headed off for HIIT. Right knee still very tender, but something I could ignore for a little. Besides, that pain was overshadowed by the sharp pain in my left anterior delt/biceps tendon, so much so that I almost stopped and doubled over at one point. But, kept going, as I do, taking all my preworkout stuff on returning to the hotel...Did better than last week on Close-Grip BB Bicep Curls, pushing through to make for each set at eight reps today, despite the pain in my RIGHT biceps tendon - vision actually blurred during second set, which was interesting and not cool. Dips were done deep and slow, feeling myself shake from the third set on, pushing it to make it through at eight reps on all sets, but barely for the last. Still loving the definition during skipping. Increased the weight by five pounds on Incline Hammer Bicep Curls, and did them alternating sides just to change it up a little - feeling it definitely on the last few reps of the last three sets, but DID it! Strength also up re V-Bar Tricep Push-Downs. Got a little frustrated with the skipping on this triset - going faster as aggression took over. Did DB Zottoman Curls for the complete set at the weight I started with last week, feeling the burn painful and ignoring it - as I was pretty much doing for all the pain during this session. Same weight as last week for two more reps each set re Standing DB French Press. For something a little different, tossed in Weighted DB Crunches instead of Rope Crunches, moving to Pikes (which have quickly become one of my favourite abs' exercises, despite the fact that my left hip - AND left KNEE as well today - pop and click on EVERY rep)...Since the Recline Bike was being used when I finished my weights and I didn't feel like waiting or using the CrossTrainer, I just walked back to the hotel and used the one in the Fitness Room there instead. Kept the pace reasonable, even though right knee was in pain...Looked at my knee afterwards, and it's swollen, looking like it did towards the end of December, which is not cool - I am going to have to watch it...Wednesday is supposed to have an evening 7-mile run - however, with my knee and wanting to be ok for tomorrow, I decided against it. Plus, I did Tuesday's training today, so it's ok to have only a single training session - that said, I WILL do a 7-mile run TOMORROW night, no excuses...


    OTHER NOTES

    Something I forgot to mention on Monday was that my arms (albeit still "small" by any standard) have definitely GAINED muscle mass, and despite my body composition being higher, I can actually see the separation between the short and long heads of my biceps, along with the brachialis, when flexed. Also interesting to note is that BOTH my biceps sit "higher" up my arm than they did, clear where the distal tendon starts. So, starting to "appreciate" what happened at the end of last year, seeing the blessing in it. Despite losing all the muscle mass (again) that I did because of it, I have managed to build it all back UP AND THEN SOME! This IS my 12th week back training since my injury-time-out though, so it is to be a little expected. The real difference has been noticed over the last couple of weeks though - since adding skipping to "make" a superset or triset in my sessions, so there's something to that (AND eating a lot more, LOL). Anyways, I'm glad to be back on track. NO more time outs for this woman (but I WILL be careful and watch myself, because it was this period back training after my wrist last year that the pain in my shoulders and biceps' tendons started making more noise than usual - and we all know what happened there, and I do NOT want my left side "put out", nor my right damaged more)!!!

    Anyways, all that aside, it's been a good day today. Been very tired, but productive, a specific project I am highly EXCITED for and promises to be EPIC set in place around/"for" my birthday "weekend"

    Good job on the arm growth, I am currently trying to jolt mine into some new growth. I think it is my tight fascia that is holding me back as when I fully flex the top of my bi which is usually very round flattens out. I thing the muscle is being constrained by the fascia. I am doing posing while fully pumped in an effort to stretch the fascia. Regarding the pain in your anterior delt/bicep region. Your arm will recruit the shoulder when the amount of weight is too heavy for the bicep to bear. It will do so by forcing your arm out in front of you. Here is a little advice, take it for what it is worth. Some have to stand against a wall to do this I have enough of a mind body connection and have been doing it so long I do not. Keep your elbows dead by your sides. Do not let them pass your body not so much as an inch. If you cannot complete your curl in this manner you are going to heavy and will recruit the shoulder in the movement. You may have to drop your weight a little, but you will protect your shoulder and the pain will subside. Also this forces your bi to do all the work and gives and amazing burn. Give it a shot and see if it works for you.

    Epic project on your B-day weekend, My birthday is next Friday April 6, when is yours? Are you an Aries too? That would explain an awful lot lol

    Keep Pushing as Always

    Thanks, David. I have always had to work hard on any growth in my upper body, especially since I do NOT do Legs, but I have found what works for me and are getting there.

    Pain is not from the weight being too heavy (if it was, I would lower it, since I am a stickler for form) - just the same pain I have ignored for years, and will continue to ignore (within reason), but thank you for the suggestion.

    I most definitely will! No, I am a Gemini.

  14. Oh and sorry, about the advice I was in no way insinuating that your form was bad. I am a stickler too. I cannot bear to watch some of the people at the gym the way they throw the weights around helter skelter I see major injury looming for certain. It was just something I noticed in myself and it only happened on the last few reps of a set. When I was weaker my elbows would come forward just a tad but it caused major pain in my already injured shoulder. Thats all. Oh and the above post totally kidding just wanted to reiterate that.

    I don't put much stock in astrology, David - after all, there are going to be accurate and non-accurate points through it all (I sure as hell know there are if you were to "look" at me as a Gemini!)...That said, as with everything, I identify more with my CHINESE sign - which is Rat...Reading about one (or the other) can only say so much, because everyone is an individual, and what you see is not always what is...

    No worries - that message was not taken at all, LOL. I may allow myself to do a half-rep on the last one or two reps of a set if it is towards the end of my sets for that exercise and don't want to drop the weight down, but still maintain my form as much as possible (the point of doing a half-rep if the weight becomes a little too much is to be able TO maintain form but still complete the exercise - to me, at least).

    All good

    Trust me I am not a believer in the Zodiac, I am an Aries and in fact almost all the traits an Aries is alleged to have ...well its pretty much me to a T but that is a coincicdence only. In the the Chinese Zodiac I am a Snake, as is my brother and my daughter. all 12 years apart. I also fit the attributes of that one too. lol yet still I don't believe. Maybe I should ...Nah!

    Form is very important especially if you do not want to get hurt. I train without a partner..no one can keep up with me. Not being arrogant but I rest so little between sets training with a parntner is difficult as I would always be pushing them. When people at the gym work in on a machine or the chin bar I always complete 2 sets to their one. I need the intensity to make gains. Where was I going with this ..oh no partner so no force reps so on a curl the most I would do is give it a leg bump on the last rep. otherwise I am slow and controlled. For building muscle I feel that is the best, time under tension, I try to maximize that. I believe that is what gives me my crazy vascularity too.

    Yes, well, some of what I may APPEAR to be re Gemini, if you KNOW me, you'll know that it IS only an impression.

    I don't train with a partner. If I need someone to lift the heavier dumbbells into the starting position for me (like say on Incline Bench Press or Seated Shoulder Press, etc. - since I can do the movement with the weight, but not "throw" the weight up to start, LOL), I will ask one of the guys in the gym, but aside from that, I prefer to train alone and always have. I didn't mind going TO the gym with someone or helping them out with spotting if they need it (BETWEEN my sets), but that's all it is and I train by myself - my training is specific to ME and no one else.

    Thank you...No one is born with a six-pack. That said, there will be NO babies for me!...AND, even though I AM "just another one of the guys", I am not a "dude", LOL, nor to my knowledge have we ever met in person (if we have, please correct me)...All that aside, glad I can help motivate you

    Was pretty knackered last night, forcing myself to stay awake, dosing G8 at 2222, falling asleep not long afterwards. Slept solidly for ~5 hours, waking on time. This is so much better, 4-5 hours' sleep "perfect" for me. My head wasn't throbbing as badly this morning, but it still took having my "first thing" supplement doses and cup of green tea before I felt fully awake. To note, my RIGHT shoulder/biceps tendon ached from the moment I woke (did before I went to sleep as well - as did my left, but that was not as prominent on waking)...Headed to the gym truly READY, determined to make it a session to remember. Started out skipping - 1,500 revolutions at a steady pace (just to give you an idea re time, it took 10 minutes). Left knee was also an issue today, for the second half of this, right knee a constant, tight pain...Then onto the weights. I am loving the trisets; my BODY is loving the trisets - it does so MUCH BETTER overall with higher intensity, more volume, and shorter recovery periods! Used the weight I ended on last week for the Single-Arm DB Bent Over Rows and was fine until the last set (I decided to up it from last week and do six sets instead of only five), where the last 2-3 reps on each side were slower than the slow tempo I was ALREADY using. Vascularity was excellent and DRY during these - seriously, THIS is what I want ALL the time! Push-Ups I made sure to use a slow tempo with as well, going beyond 90 degrees re elbow flexion. Skipping was hard and fast. No beanie today, but I had my hair in a simple high ponytail, and believe me when I say having it "down" makes a huge difference - I may as well HAVE been wearing a beanie, that's how warm I was (wearing trackies probably didn't help either LOL); the sweat and effort was visible and I had to keep wiping my face with my towel. Increased the weight re Supinated BB Bent Over Rows by 50% - only able to do half the amount of reps as I did last week, which was fine. Did not increase weight on the Incline BB Bench Press (as I was going to), but it was fine after the increase in weight re Supinated BB Bent Over Rows. Had to "shake" myself a few times after my skipping between these trisets, as I got quite light-headed and dizzy. Didn't do as I did last week for the last few trisets, choosing instead to triset Neutral Grip Seated Row with Cable CrossOvers and skipping. Used the weight that I did in my Full-Body session last week re Neutral Grip Seated Row and was able to do more reps, which was positive. Found a "middle ground" re Cable CrossOvers from the different weights I used in this session last week, doing four sets of 12 reps. Left knee stopped bothering me when it came to the skipping to finish off each triset here, although right was still an issue...Regardless, smiling, finished off my morning training with 20 minutes on the Recline Bike, at a pace that my right knee was not going to become worse at...After a discovery that left me not sure whether to smile or cry, I waited for an hour before setting out on my run. For some reason I didn't notice the pain in my knees - almost didn't even really notice my legs moving, but just kept going steadily. I DID feel my pace slow when I started the gradual incline return journey, but ended up with a surprising overall average pace. Right knee quite swollen and painful once I stopped though (as well as left shoulder/biceps tendon reminding me sharply that it was not happy either), so stretched my legs a little, focusing on it to help some...BOTH shoulders have had a biting, aching pain in them all day. Right knee has been tight and painful all day. But I'm NOT going to let that stop me from doing what I need to. After all, if I am going to get better, then I HAVE to do not JUST what I want to, but what I MUST!!!

    Thanks man that means, a lot.....It really does. I am glad you dropped by the booth. Next year I intend to have an Eight Pack, I used to have a keg. All it takes for the six pack is dedication and denial. Both will make your stronger
