    I hope you do give them another go. They're fantastic, and I can't believe this is the first time I've done them seriously - as opposed to testing the waters. I will not miss deficit deadlifts, that's for sure. 20/02/16 BENCH REHAB 1 BRO BENCH 95x10 135x20 165x20,17 high rep sets to get the body moving and make sure my injured side doesn't get all bound up with scar tissue. Felt absolutely great, and pumped, and weak lol SMITH MACHINE JM PRESS (angled, weight listed is weight on bar) 90x10,10 120x10,9 holy fuck this was hard. hardest tricep exercise in the past 3 years imo SEATED NAUTILUS ROW 3P35PSx10,10,10,8 DB HAMMER CURLS superset SINGLE ARM TRI ROPE EXTENSIONS 35x13,10 35x15,15 Pretty happy with the workout. No pain, and I walked out with a massive pump. I have my PT appointment this week on Wednesday. Looking forward to meeting my therapist. I've heard great things from my DO about him. I hope he can take care of me. Unless I've goofed, this upcoming week is my last week of PCT (assuming the week that just went by wasn't my last). I suspect I'm already fully recovered. I feel like the SERM I'm taking (currently at 20mg/week) is basically taking me over my natty limit at this point, but I will continue with it for good measure. I think I'd rather hurt myself with excess low dose SERM than cut the SERM out too early, given those choices. If any one of the four other people still logging onto the forum has any contradictory input about this I'd like to hear.

    Liftin' weights and other shit

    Had a workout today. First time in a bit. Joined a proper serious gym again after regular bar squats almost broke me. I've been looking for a second job and applied to a front desk job with the gym I'm leaving, actually. Easy work and if I get 20 hours a week it'd be nice to have the extra cash. They've got a SSB and a transformer bar so I just did some light weight squats (bar only) and the rest of my accessory stuff. Only other thing of note is some Romanian deads. Movements felt good. Back is still a bit fucked up from getting it fixed but it's getting better.

    Off season training

    Monday, 17 February 2020: Decided to pace myself before the next leg day. Just climbing today. Within 30 seconds of sitting down in the bouldering area, a girl fell off the wall and broke her arm right in front of me. We got her calmed down and the gym staff did some basic splint work so she could make her way to the doctor. I climbed a few bouldering problems but I wasn't really feeling it, so I left early. I drove my wife's car to the gym. On the way home, it developed some terrible noises from the engine bay. Not quite consistent enough for rod knock, maybe a spun bearing, but I'm hoping it's just a broken timing belt tensioner. I'll pull it apart tomorrow, but I'm giving it 70% odds of a blown motor given that it almost has 200K miles. On top of that, I'm feeling vaguely sick. Beginning to think I picked up some of @Growth Factor's bad 2020 luck somehow.

    Breakfast

    People who eat a big breakfast may burn twice as many calories Study finds eating more at breakfast instead of dinner could prevent obesity Science News, February 19, 2020 Eating a big breakfast rather than a large dinner may prevent obesity and high blood sugar, according to new research published in the Endocrine Society's Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism. Our body expends energy when we digest food for the absorption, digestion, transport and storage of nutrients. This process, known as diet-induced thermogenesis (DIT), is a measure of how well our metabolism is working, and can differ depending on mealtime. "Our results show that a meal eaten for breakfast, regardless of the amount of calories it contains, creates twice as high diet-induced thermogenesis as the same meal consumed for dinner," said the study's corresponding author, Juliane Richter, M.Sc., Ph.D., of University of L├╝beck in Germany. "This finding is significant for all people as it underlines the value of eating enough at breakfast." The researchers conducted a three-day laboratory study of 16 men who consumed a low-calorie breakfast and high-calorie dinner, and vice versa in a second round. They found identical calorie consumption led to 2.5 times higher DIT in the morning than in the evening after high-calorie and low-calorie meals. The food-induced increase of blood sugar and insulin concentrations was diminished after breakfast compared with dinner. The results also show eating a low-calorie breakfast increased appetite, specifically for sweets. "We recommend that patients with obesity as well as healthy people eat a large breakfast rather than a large dinner to reduce body weight and prevent metabolic diseases," Richter said.

Twice as High Diet-Induced Thermogenesis After Breakfast vs Dinner On High-Calorie as Well as Low-Calorie Meals.

    You can hold on to that torch from now on out. I don't need it back! But seriously, wish you luck on the car surgery tomorrow.

    I grew up watching This Old House with my dad on Sunday mornings. He and I did some remodeling work together when I was too young to really be much help. It's amazing how much of the knowledge I've retained, though. Now my dad is getting too old to really help out much. I can tell he wants to, but my mom and I are both worried that he'll worsen his back problems if he tries. Kind of wish I had done this earlier in my life so he could help out a bit more.

    Tomahawk HUGE update with a log

    6 days is probably too much, but you're still young and can probably hack it for a while longer. I went 4 days per week into my 40s. M-T-Th-F, Sat/Sun off.

    Tomahawk HUGE update with a log

    So I got lazy with posting BUT I have still been lifting. Kind of over the sickness now. At least it is mostly clearing. Got some coughing with mucus coming up and plenty of snot but feel better. Workout from today: Standing press axle bar rest pause 185 for 3,1,1 Glute drive with band around knees 190 for 10 second squeeze then 9 more reps Triceps extensions Strive machine 45 middle 50 beginning 8 reps Nautilus chest press machine wider handles 185 for 12 reps I believe and then 3,3 followed by a stretch with the narrow handles Weight was still up from carbs on Friday but coming back down. Was 251 at the gym with clothes and shoes on today. Although I went over to my parents for dinner and checked my weight with gym clothes on no shoes and it said 254 so lol. I am not sure if I trust the gym scale lol. Probably should buy a scale for home to check morning weight. I do feel like I am leaning out though. I am tempted to lift tomorrow. I ended up taking Sunday(typical) and Monday off last week. Just kind of in the mood to lift and it helps. On the flip side of that I am looking into trying a 4 day a week program lol. Want to mix things up a bit. Not sure how I will handle only 4 days a week. But I might get motivated to walk more often. Plus going 6 days a week has me tied to the gym. Granted I could just back it off to 5 or even 4 days a week if something comes up. But I like the focus of the program I am looking into and that is strength. I realized how much my body changes when I focus on getting stronger last time.

    Thanks for the concern. Technically, I'm switching to contracting for a while. Several peers reached out almost immediately with some opportunities. I'm not concerned for my work or career prospects just yet, though I am keeping a close eye on any possible economic downturns. I'm also taking this opportunity to remodel one or maybe two parts of the house. It's amazing how cheap a remodel can be when I'm doing all of the work myself. Feels good to do some manual labor for a change, but I'd never want to do this for a career. Sunday, 9 February 2020: Bench: 3 x 12 x 115 lbs OHP: 5 x 8 x 75 lbs Incline Bench: 3 x 12 x 75 lbs Tricep pushdown: 3 x 12 x 20 lbs Lateral Raise: 5 x 8 x 15 lbs

    While I was conducting a hands-free conversation driving home from the gym on a snowy night, I inadvertently blew through a red light and got T-boned, and my car is totaled. I've no traffic tickets, ever, and the only red light or stop sign I've legitimately blown was when I had my driving narcolepsy (and no incident occurred, thankfully). I was 2 payments away from paying it off. I cannot make this shit up. I want a do-over on my whole fucking life. I want a refund on this shit. BTW, Trump is getting re-elected this election. This is the most obvious end-point of this year of my life.
