Damn, I been out of this thread too long. Took forever to catch up. And I missed all the shenanigans.

What’s the exam on?
Hey Cody! Welcome back! I have a Human Resource Certification test aka SHRM. For all the money I paid, I better pass it! 🤣

Never tried this, what kind of relief dose it offer ?



Great photo @ZOO should be able to use this for something !!
From what my friend tells me, it’s used for a lot of stuff. Headaches, muscle aches, diseases, etc... I use it after I train when I have muscle soreness. Which reminds me, I will use it on my elbow today. It’s kinda like an ART massage. It pulls the toxins out.

I definitely need the focus!!! I’ve been so discombobulated the last few weeks.

Haha I have an album of the pics she takes with the products. She’s my head (hehe) of forum marketing. XD
Hahah, shhh... you’re telling them our secrets!

@puccah8808 Im sure you will do just fine on the exam. It’s 2021 now, not 2020. Nothing to worry about.
Thanks, Cody! And hahahah, it’s day 374 of 2020. 🤣

You should pamper your self at least a little !!
It’s almost been a year. I probably will schedule one soon!

Completely agree! Lol, I hate massages but love manicures and pedicures!
I don't care for massages, but I do go to the Chiropractor on a month !
I love all 3 haha Not the best at doing them very regularly. Maybe once a year or every other year.

It’s one of those mornings!!!! I’m trying to finish up 500 pages by tomorrow night. I have an exam in 4 weeks and 2 more 1000 page books to read. Fmllllll.....

Haha oddly enough, I don’t typically like chocolate on chocolate....but this fat kid like sweets! Lol I try not to have any temptation at all.

You would love this one! Haha

That looks soooooo absolutely delicious, Kat!!!! Happy birthday to her!!! Lol, that makes us old!

Yeah I’d say it’s how my body responds and also what I want. Like I can’t enjoy dirty food because it won’t help me in my pursuits. And also it makes me feel so gross I can’t stand it. Don’t get me wrong I love the stuff when I do eat it but by and large I have no temptation. By keeping myself well fed on meat and eggs and the cravings are basically nonexistent. I love the results more than I love the brief mouth pleasure lol

Ahh yeah I understand that! I don’t consider real foods like rice, potatoes, beans, fruit etc(natural carb sources) dirty. I definitely try to avoid the others bc I know it’s just not best.

Grats on the pr. I go to planet fitness now and they don’t have bars only smith. I used my work gym today and was nice to have a real bench again but felt so weak on it and did 40lbs less than I do on the smith. I really hate the smith lol

Oh no! Really? That stinks! I’ve only done incline on smith as far as bench goes and it was awkward. I tried and hated squats on it too. Stiff/Romanian Deads, kneeling squats, and hip thrusts are the only thing I’ve found as decent exercises on a smith. I have thought about joining the local PF just bc it’s cheaper for my son to join and I could get him into lifting.

The Smith Machine takes the balance and stability out of the movement which is not good, however I use it more that free weights, after tearing my rotator cuff years ago, I can not use dumb bells at all, and even with a barbell, my stability is not good.

My last gym was dirty and had to change and PF was the only other option sadly.

I hear you broseph. Although it’s not a recognized marker of strength in the traditional sense, like you can’t claim you bench 400 if you did it on smith, but its a great tool for folks like us with injuries. The work wouldn’t be the same without the smith machine.

I think I could eat rice everyday !!
I feel the same I love rice. All of that looks great would devour
I do now thanks to @TheSolution
I eat about 1-2 cups a day. Pre/post workout, lunch...for dinner I switch it up and do potatoes. It’s a lot of work getting in almost 300 carbs!

So I’ve been having terrible “tendinitis” lately. Even lifting a fucking stapler hurts! Im hoping this and some joint meds will help.

Haha, I’m also pretty sure it’s from being old af and the cold! 🤪🥶

Have you ever tried BCM 95 curcumin? Pair that with a good ginger supplement
Thank you for the advice. I’ll check it out! I decided to stay up late to study and just cupped and it feels awesome. That good pain!

I’m working remotely for the next week and it feels so weird to just roll out of bed and turn on my laptop! Like I’ve been missing out on this luxury!! Wtf?! So much time wasted, getting ready and driving back and forth to work!

Feeling your pain lol mine is on the inside of both elbows. Pulling hurts it more than anything. I know in the past wearing compression sleeves have helped so going to try that again.

Ah, man, that totally sucks! I hope it helps you! I just put mine on and I feel like it’s cutting off my circulation in a good way if that makes sense. I’m thinking it’s definitely from me being an arm sleeper. I have like a million pillows but prefer my damn arm. 🤣
