I think this new forum will be a great place for the thousands of people who visit this site each day to meet, learn and exchange information.

Cutting phase to end this Friday; What next?; I’m writing a book!

I’ll be ending my cutting phase this Friday (January 23, 2004). I’m back down to 8% body fat, and it’s time for me to slowly start increasing my daily caloric intake back to maintenance level. I was going to start doing that yesterday, but our dinner plans changed (the store was out of fresh crab) and I had to have shrimp, which reduced the calories I had planned by 600. I had a very successful… [Read more]

Thanks for the translations; Email backlog; New article Expressen.

Thanks to everyone who translated my Verdens Gang and Aftonbladet newspaper articles yesterday, I really appreciate it! I did another interview yesterday; this one was for another of Sweden’s largest newspapers, Expressen. The article was published in today’s paper (Monday), and it is also on their web site. Several people have already been kind enough to translate it for me, so no need for anyone else to translate this one. Thanks! I now have several… [Read more]

Calling all multi-lingual Swedish and Norwegians; My day off.

UPDATE: I’ve been away from my computer all morning, and now that I’ve checked my email I have found a number of excellent translations of the VG article and of the Aftonbladet article. Thank you very much to everyone who took the time to translate the articles for me, I really appreciate your efforts! I very much appreciate all the wonderful emails I have been receiving from all over the globe! The response to the… [Read more]

Email update; Articles in Aftonbladet and Verdens Gang; Time off.

I’m doing my best, but I’m still not making a dent in my email. I received over 100 new emails yesterday, and am already several hundred behind, so please understand that it will take some time before I can reply. If you’ve sent me an email and have not yet received a reply, please read yesterday’s update. A whole bunch of my mail last night was from people who live in Sweden. Apparently earlier this… [Read more]

More on email; A record 2.3 million hits yesterday; How do you want to look?

I’m not sure what to do about the amount of email I’ve been receiving. I’ve been spending all my free time this week answering emails, and I’m not even making a dent. Yesterday morning I had a little over 200 emails left to answer, I replied to 63 of those yesterday evening – but 87 new ones came in during the day, and a couple dozen more last night while I was sleeping. I thought… [Read more]

MAX-OT week off; Cutting cycle ending; Myths and lies; Email flood.

The MAX-OT strength training program requires a week off every 8-10 weeks. This is done so that the body can recover from several months of heavy, intense weight lifting. It’s been 10 weeks since my last break, so I’m going to start my week off today. This should also be good for my rotator cuff injury, because it is now 95% healed and after a week of no stress on it, I’m hoping it will… [Read more]

Almost two million hits & several hundred emails yesterday; Welcome new visitors!

What a crazy 24 hours it’s been. This site had just shy of two million hits yesterday, and will probably receive even more today as the recent Farking and the associated aftershocks continue to run their course. There have been quite a few new visitors to this web site over the past couple of weeks. I hope those of you who are serious about getting in shape and leading a healthy lifestyle will find this… [Read more]

I’ve been Farked; Daily pictures; New domain name coming soon.

When I first started this site a little over a year ago, it was nothing more than a way to help keep me motivated as I worked to improve my health and personal appearance. Slowly its popularity began to grow, and more and more people started coming to the site every day. A few weeks ago the site was chugging along nicely, receiving a few hundred thousand hits per day and I would generally receive… [Read more]

Traps; Is it possible to have wide hips and the “V” taper?

Yesterday I forgot to mention that I have added a traps routine to my Saturday weight training schedule. My traps really need a lot work, as I have never done any exercises specifically targeting them. I worked them really hard on Saturday, and they are on fire this morning. I think once they start to come in a bit more my upper body will take on a more “completed” look. Because I have very wide… [Read more]
