    Thanks wasme. Just a quick update: No work outs the last two days due to ball games. My little guy got his first hit, a single on a line shot to left field. Very pleased for him as he struggled in adjusting from Pee Wee ball to Little League last year, had been intimidated by bigger kids pitching to him. Kept the diet pretty well tight, just a bit over 2000 cals Sunday, just a bit under 2000 yesterday. Will be lifting tonight!

    I remember that day... my daughter got hers the same day. One really big day I had .. a lttle background.. my daughters football team did not have enough players so I ased my son's coach if she could play for his team. We did not expect much of anything from her. The first gain it's 2nd and 8 or so. They thorw her the ball and she catches and runs for a first down. We were freaking out. She's like 9 and a girl playing with 11 and 12 year olds. The next year she was the QB but that's another story.

  7. 4/23/13 Chest and Quads 5:35-6:35

    Inc BB Press (W\u with Bar, 135) 175x5, 185x5, 195x5 (Each rep touching the upper chest)

    Flat DB Press 75's x 10/8

    One set of Smith Machine squats just to loosen the hip flexors etc before ->
    Bench Squat 140x5, 160x5, 170x5 (+ a neg) I should be happy but it was briefly discouraging getting stuck on rep 6.
    Lost focus on where I am headed and started to think of what I had lost (400+ Squat) That lasted about 10 seconds before it just pissed me off and made me more determined. Also, I was actually able to hit the bench repeatedly at all weights this week.

    Deep Hack Squat (Sled) 140x8/8

    Cable Crunch 140x15/20

    2421 cals. Going to get some AM cardio in tomorrow morning before work.

  8. Don't worry about the numbers now bro.

    It won't help to dwell on where you used to be, all you can do now is move forward from where you are currently.

    It may be easier to treat this like you're starting up for the first time, don't judge based on what you used to do and simply focus on how much more you can do now than you did last week!

    I understand what you are saying Jim and I appreciate the input. I am just a stubborn SOB and like most stubborn SOB's the worst thing you can do if you want to beat me is "throw down the gauntlent" because it only serves to strengthen my resolve.

    I'm the same way.

    Also, I'm considering buying a real gauntlet. I want to go to Britain and throw it at people and see how many accept my challenge (you're first Ben)

  12. Did complete the AM cardio, 25 minutes, random hill profile. Due to a crisis intervention at work did not get to break fast till 4:00, 20 hr fast plus cardio should make for a good burn.

    I was ready to rip into some chow at 2:00. This crisis started at 1:30, and this guy had ver loose associations and tended to ramble. There were a few times I had to remind myself that was part of his illness. Just gald I got the chance to eat before my 5:00 group!

  23. iThe damn scale is still not moving but I have had a few people asking if I am losing weight again so something must be working. Have also noted that my upper chest and delts are looking bigger already, but my delts are usually the first thing to bounce back for me after a pro-longed break. That being said, this is probably the worst time for a cheat day, but I am doing it but in a controlled fashion, meaning not hitting the junk food and candy, just eating what we have around with out measuring, for example dinner was chicken breast with corn and pasta noodles. At plenty of chicken, a small helping of noodles and about a cup of corn.

  26. Back up and on it today! Despite the fact that my leg work weights/reps were a little less than last week, I was happier overall with how it went. Not a high volume day by any stretch, my overall iron moved was greater and I reached better depth and had no balance concerns.

    5/2/13 Chest/Quads 5:15-6:10

    Bench (w/u 135x10) 185x5, 205x5, 225x4 (Had no spotter), 185x9

    Inc DB Press 70'sx9/8, 55'sx10

    Bench Squat, bottom hit the bench every rep 135x10, 155x4 (let my butt settle in on the bench on rep five and could not move it.)

    Hack Squat 150x5, 150x10 (Moved foot position higher up on the plate, went very deep)

    Leg Press 230x10

    Diet has been on point today for overall calls, needed to get back up on that too.

    If the scale re weight is not moving, but you look like you have "lost weight", then you are getting LEANER, which is a GOOD thing. Looks like you could be gaining a little muscle mass as well, from your observations and others' comments. KEEP going, Tony!

    You know there ain't no quit in this kid

    5/5/13 Rear chain/Delts 2:00-3:15

    Notes: Started with a bit of biking then some stretching. I used 35#plates for the deads to make it a deficit and force me to drop my bottom, focus was on form and scraping the shins. Happy overall.

    Deads: 115x10, 145x6, 185x5, 165x6 (Baby steps T!)

    D Bar Pull Down: 145x8/8/6

    Romanian DL: 135x8/8

    BO DB Row (l/r): 90x 6/6, 6/6

    Standing OH BB Press: 130x6, 140x4, 125x12 (Again, down to the clavicle, no push from the hips)

    Standing Cable Upright Rows: 60x12, 70x12 (Just feeling out where I am with these)

    Face Pull 15x12, 20x12 (Again, feeling this out, focus was on form)
