So here's the pic of Mace and Me from Saturday. Now you can't complain that you never see any pics of me. I'm not really that big, just have an athletic looking build, and I can live with that....I guess....for now at least.
Faces were editted to protect the innocent. Or at least Macedaddy's was. I always look like that.

I've tried pretty much every variation of rear delt raises there is. I like these because they're don't require high traffice equipment (like reverse pec deck), don't allow for "cheat reps", and they're quite humbling.
But who knows, I might switch it up in a few months. Was doing reverse pec decks over the summer.

Are you going to the other 3 shows in Ohio this month?
10-09-2007, 10:09 AM
I really wanna go to the Monster Mash in Oxford, but probably won't. School and work come first.
BTW, I got a parttime job as a QC chemist for an electroplating manufacturer (should be a nice break from the automotive industry). If the other guy can make it there to train me, I start today.

sinner, thats exactly how i do my rear laterals...you get the best stability that way.

Thought I would run 800's this morning instead of the usual treadmill routine. LOL, it's been a while since I've run an 800, and yeah, my speed had gone up and my endurance down. The track is 6 laps to a mile. I ended up sprinting 1 lap, rest/walk, 3 laps (800), rest/walk, 1 lap.
Afterwards, jumped dat dere rope...for about 20-25 minutes......then it broke! I hate it when that happens, but it's nothing a paperclip won't fix.
Word.sinner, thats exactly how i do my rear laterals...you get the best stability that way.

How does 1-T Ethergels compare to 1-AD ?

I tend to bend over more with the DB rows than with the barbells. Barbell rows I'm bent over slightly, so that the bar will stop into my belly button at full contraction. Barbell rows do a lot of the trap work for me. Better upper back exercise than shrugs by a mile, IMHO.

they are just as unavailable since the prohormone ban. Is that a good answer?

Reverse Grip Close Grip Bench (RGCG): 165*12

It's funny, I saw a bunch of people implementing my infamous RGCG's into their workouts this week. I like to think of myself as a trendsetter, but really they probably got it from BB.com or something

You have grandma arms? Numbers are looking good.
10-12-2007, 08:27 AM
I was in a funny mood this morning, and decided to post the "bad and out of shape terms" for the body parts.
Boobs = Chest
Grandma Arms = Triceps ("grandma arms" is a slang term for when you store a lot of bodyfat over the tricep, commonly happens with older women.)
I'm sorry if I offended anybody. I'm just being a goof.

I might try the rgcg too, just to feel what it isolates
10-12-2007, 09:18 AM
Some tips for "feeling it":
-Take it nice and easy.
-Go all the way down. Because your chest is almost completely taken out of the motion, you will get a lot more tricep action as you go below parallel (which is not the case with the conventional, protonated grip).
-The bar shoud touch the upper part of your chest. This allows for a greater ROM for your tricep muscle, not to mention tons more torque being applied to the triceps muscles (and less on your front deltoid) as you bring the bar lower to the bottom of the motion.

Weekend Update with Kevin Nealon
Saturday & Sunday
Well, Friday afternoon, I strained my knee when the chain unexpectedly popped off the sprocket as I was riding my bike home from class, causing me to bump it on the handle bars. Knee swelled up to the size of a grapefruit. All weekend cardio fun was cancelled. I am instead practicing the WIRED technique for getting the swelling down so I will be good to squat (hopefully) tomorrow.
Wrap- wrap in an ACE bandage
Ice- keep cold to reduce swelling
Rest- stay off it to promote recovery
Elevate- keep knee elevated to reduce swelling
Drug- Advil is your friend
I'm thesinner, and that's news to me.
