    FUnny my son (19) and daughter (16) go to a gym that has a promotion for students 12-17 in the summer. Free membership from 9-3. My son only will go after 3 now, and my daughter complains about how none of them are serious and has to ask them to move so she can use something they are just sitting on texting. That said, it is a good idea / promo for Goodlife (gym chain) to promote youth fitness.

    I agree with both of these statements. My supervisors look at me crazy when we go on an important assignment and I'm sweating like crazy (I carry a wash clothe in my back pocket to wipe sweat). It seems like every time there is something important I've just taken Combustion.

    Ooh, man, these burn so good. I use about the same weight as you, and sometimes I swing wider than prescribed, but I've NEVER hit 60 without pauses. I think the other day I even set the DB's down for 3-4 seconds. The burn is awesome.

  5. I didn't know there was a prescribed distance on the swing? I just used them like I would doing rear delts, albeit without near the ROM. Of course by the time I got to the last 10-15 reps the ROM wasn't much haha.

    " swinging the weight up in a 6-8 inch arc for 60 reps"

  8. Thanks guys! That looks like what I did, but not quiet as fast swinging.

  12. Just a quick update.


    Sorry haven't been around the last few days to update my logs.
    Yestarday morning my oldest boys were gone and it was just me and the 6 yr old so I decided it was "our" day. Spent the morning and early afternoon with him before I went to work.
    This morning I got in a did a quick bis/tri/calves workout. Pretty intense one at that!!


    Now the bad news.
    I live in an older house. In the rooms that don't have drop ceilings, the ceiling is plaster with lathes below it. Well our dining room has always had a few cracks in the ceiling. Over the last week they have gotten worse every day!! Bad enough it looked like one side was bowing and ready to come down!
    So after my workout this morning, I ate some breakfast/lunch and starting tearing down the ceiling to put sheet rock up. Well as I tore down the old plaster I realized it was it that was bowing, it was the lathes and apparently the ceiling joists that are bowing on one end the ceiling!!! Bad enough that I can push up on the joist and part of the ceiling goes with it. Even though I was just up in the attack yestarday I couldnt see any leaks. BUT the joists are covered up by insulation so I have no idea what is going on. ARGGG!!! My wifes cousin owns a construction company so he is coming over this afternoon while I am at work to check it out. Gotta feeling it is going to be some $$$ to fix!!


    So the next few days may be hit or miss on here but I will get everything caught up by the first of next week.

  13. Oh nooooooo! That doesn't sound good at all!! I hope it's not too crazy $$!

  14. Good luck man.. that's too bad, hope it isn't too expensive.

    Sorry to hear of your troubles, man! Sounds like you are in good hands though. If you didn't have an insider, this could end up costing even more. Good luck to you!

    Hope the Combustion is helping you cope! lol (shameless)

  16. Dang, man. That sucks. Bring the house down to Florida and I'll help you out with the repairs.

  17. lets hope your wifes cousin can give you a deal, costs of materials are crazy high these days, but maybe he can get a discount to pass on to you!!!
    GOD, FAMILY, COUNTRY!!!

  18. Sorry guys been MIA the last few days. Did hit the gym Saturday and got in a good back workout!! Took today off. Was going to get in some cardio but got called into work at 8 this morning. And my wifes cousing still hasn't came by so I will get up in the attack in a bit and see if I can figure out whats wrong.




    It looks like I have about a week left of the combustion. I'll be starting a DermaTr3n log for Olympus Labs tomorrow so I am transitioning from a cut to recomp. Although depending on how things go I probably won't change my calories to much. At least this first week, and then I may slowly raise them

  20. Sorry the pic is so big. So this is what I am dealing with, I am in my attic here. As you can tell it is an old house by the insulation. The ceiling joists are actually 2x4's instead of 2x6 or 8's. If you look you can see one laying flat that goes across the joists diagonally. I am not sure how many are up there like that, but it looks like they put them in for more support. That board is nailed into the joists. Once I got the insulation moved back I can see that the couple of boards have dropped some and came loose. So my plans are to jack up the ceiling from our dining room and then get up in the attack and use 4" screws and secure the joists to the brace. Hopefully that fixed the problem. I pulled the insulation back along the 2x4 and it all seems pretty sturdy, no cracks or water damage so not sure why it came loose?

    are you going to continue the week of combustion?

  22. Wow! Looks like a mess but sounds like you know how to fit it pretty "simply" and without a contractor! I don't know anything about houses! I leave all of that to hubby! Lol I don't really allow him in the attic much anymore though bc he shattered his leg 3 years ago falling through our master bathroom ceiling! O.o

  25. Have y'all taken any walls out or made changes to any walls? I've seen some people try and take out or change a load bearing wall and eventually the ceiling collapsed.
