New feature: The JSF Shopping Mall!

Just in time for the holidays: John Stone Fitness is proud to announce the Grand Opening of the brand new JSF Shopping Mall! The JSF Shopping Mall is a storefront for Amazon.com, but final checkout is still done directly with Amazon. You’ll enjoy the exact same low prices, selection, security and benefits just as if you were shopping on their regular site. In fact, the JSF storefront software will automatically find the lowest priced item… [Read more]

Record month!

I was just going over the November 2005 web statistics and was surprised to find that November 2005 was the busiest month ever for the JSF forums! Almost a half-million visitors, 30 million hits and 5 millions pages were served up from November 1 – November 30… and that’s just the forums! The main page was also very busy, but did not set a record. NOVEMBER 2005 WEB STATS – JSF FORUMS Visitors: 402,228 Pages:… [Read more]

Detailed analysis of my 2004 bulk – learning from mistakes.

Yesterday I mentioned that I only gained 3.8 pounds the first month of my 2004 bulk. That seems striking compared to the 13+ pounds I’ve gained during the first month of this bulk. Always curious, I started looking through my old food logs and quickly discovered one of the reasons my weight gain was so slow last year for the first couple of months of my bulk: I was only eating 2,000 – 2,400 calories… [Read more]

Monthly pictures; Steroids; Lisa sails to Mexico (again).

I’m pretty happy with today’s monthly pictures. While I’ve definitely softened up a bit in my mid-section, my chest is fuller, my traps have shown excellent growth, my legs are getting huge, my shoulders are rounder and fuller and my arms have shown a pleasing amount of growth for just four weeks of bulking. My lats have also grown, but that growth is not reflected very well in these photos. If you missed it, I… [Read more]

Last night’s workout; Intensity, drive and focus for results; New photo.

It’s been roughly 12 hours since my back workout, and I’m already starting to feel the DOMS. For several reasons, last night’s workout was a breakthrough workout… First, I elected to utilize the lifting straps that have been sitting idle on my gym floor for the past couple of years. Simply put, the strength of my back has outpaced the strength of my grip. Over the past few months I’ve been consistently adding 10 pounds… [Read more]

Bulking: one month progress report.

The first month of my current bulking cycle is drawing to a close, so I thought I’d do a status check (all measurements are cold/unpumped): Body Weight: +12.8 pounds (currently 201.6 pounds) Body Fat: +4.5 pounds Lean Mass: +8.3 pounds Waist: +1 Inch (currently 31.75 inches) Hips: +3/4 Inch (currently 38.75 inches) Arms: +1/2 Inch (currently 16.5 inches) Thighs: +1.5 Inches (currently 24 inches) Calves: +1/2 Inch (currently 16.5 inches) Chest: +1/2 Inch (currently 42.75… [Read more]

Very sore; Change is important for growth; Last night’s workout; New photo.

“Ouch!” That word pretty much sums up how I’m feeling this morning. Not a bad “ouch”, but a good one. The pain I’m feeling right now reminds me that I worked my tail off in the gym over the past three days. The soreness is a constant, and oddly welcome, reminder that my muscles are rebuilding. By the time I work those muscles again, they will be bigger and stronger than ever. I think one… [Read more]

Last night’s delt/traps workout; Upright rows; Tonight’s bicep/tricep workout.

I had a fine delts/traps workout last night. My new delts training routine can be found in my journal. Here’s the direct link to last night’s entry. As you’ll see a little further down in the thread, “JoeSchmo” pointed me to some articles that discuss the upright row, and how hard it is in the shoulder. This was new information to me, and I’m glad Joe took the time to mention it. Obviously with my… [Read more]

Last night’s leg workout; Tonight’s workout; Working on Titan review.

Fueled by my vast post-Thanksgiving meal energy reserves (along with several meals of leftovers), I gave my legs one hell of a beating last night. I switched up my workout and I really like how it felt. Details on the new leg routine and last night’s workout are in my journal. Here’s the direct link to last night’s post-workout entry. Tonight is delts and traps, and I still need to create my new workout. I’m… [Read more]

Thanksgiving pictures.

Short update today, I’m running late because I wanted to get the Thanksgiving 2005 photo album done in time for this morning’s news. Our Thanksgiving was awesome, and hope yours was, too. Here are this year’s pictures.
