RE: Atheists who work out
Since early November when I got serious about lifting again I’ve put on about 10 lbs of muscle. I can see it on how my clothes fit and my wife is very appreciative Big Grin

How much you lifting??

I'm an old fart who took it up late in life.....

I can't run anymore due to severe trauma -- so I use a stationary bike in cold weather, and ride mt. bike in nice -- then do lifting with free weights and a Bowflex machine.....

free weights I'm kinda limited - cuz all I have is cheap equipment - and 120 lbs is maxed out..... Bench - 120, overhead lift - 100, curl (two handed) 100..... Do everything in reps of 15 - times 3.....

.......................................

The difference between prayer and masturbation - is when a guy is through masturbating - he has something to show for his efforts.

RE: Atheists who work out
So angry right now, I caught the flu going around 2 weeks ago, finally shook that off this past SUnday, been working so late this week I havent been able to get into the gym, which makes me a short tempered angry atheist, then tonight I went to the gym, and 8 sets in, getting a good pump..."attention, due to incoming inclement weather we are are closing the gym right now", and they dimmed the lights and shooed everyone out.

Flex

Dont they understand it is back and Bi's day?????? We are supposed to get like 8-12 inches of snow, but that doesnt start for 5 more hours!!!

Not heavy weights, more reps. I don’t want to hurt myself.
I’ll do three or four sets of 20 reps (or as many as I can on the last set to exhaustion, in this way I get a great pump and build up stamina.

Some days are heavy days others light, I try to vary the sequence, exercise and weight.

When in my twenties my next younger brother competed in bodybuilding and I was his training partner. We were crazy then, stupid amounts of weights, he more than me. I’d squat 400 lbs and he would go 500+, I’d bench 315 and he would do 400+. When he got under the bar it would take three spotters. We’d wrap our knees he would start pacing, slapping himself in the face, yelling to the point that everyone in the gym would stop and look. Then he’d pop the bar off the rack, the thing would fucking bend and he’d start to do reps with me right behind him and a guy on either side of the bar. Had anything ever happened I’m not sure any of us could have helped him with 555 on his back.

That was thirty years ago, now I just want to maintain muscle tone. I’ve been very surprised at how quickly my body has responded, I guess it hasn’t “forgotten” all that training.

RE: Atheists who work out
One of the disadvantages of having a kid in daycare is that every sickness that is present somewhere in the nearest thousand miles manages to make its way there and back to your house :/ Glad I managed to stay healthy during our winter training in the mountains, because doing Army shit sick sucks. Within a week of being back, however, the whole family was sick.

I find that I do tend to cut back on conditioning when I feel like shit, but I still get my strength training done. My setup isn't gym dependent. Most of my weights are unconventional homemade stuff like the previously mentioned duffel gravel bags, medicine balls I made with old basketballs injected with sand, things like that. The only expensive piece of equipment I've got is my power tower/dip station. This morning I was feeling a lot better, so I used my igloo brick mold to make a few snow bricks, which I then used for shot puts. Grab the bricks, huck them across my yard using movements emulating various punches for explosive strength development, sprint to where I tossed them (or something resembling a sprint in the snow, whatever you'd call it), grab the bricks, throw them back the other direction, sprint back, repeat, and make new bricks as the ones I'm using break. Made for a fun workout.

Glad I found this thread. After knee and back injuries I am back into hitting the gym regularly. Only a month in and I feel sooooo much better.

Currently I just hope I don't embarrass my kids on our beach vacation this summer.
