What an arm workout last night!; One new picture.

I love my arm workouts, but they sure do test my limits. Last night after I finished my first superset it felt like my forearms were about to pop open. By the time I finished my second superset (halfway through my workout) I felt like I couldn’t curl so much as an empty wrapping paper tube. At that point in my workout it becomes a mind game. I spend the one minute of rest between… [Read more]

Huge response to yesterday’s update.

I received a lot of email about yesterday’s update. That didn’t surprise me. What did surprise me is that most of you seemed to agree with me – even some who dropped out of the challenge said that it was just what they needed to hear. Maybe that’s true, but a kick in the pants is only good for a small boost: it’s up to you to take advantage of the momentum and continue forward…. [Read more]

“All dumbbell” chest workout last night.

I always enjoy when I change my workouts around. Doing so every three weeks seems to work well for me. Last night I worked my chest, and decided to go back to an “all dumbbell” workout that I used during last year’s bulk with very good results. The only non-dumbbell exercise in this routine is the cable crossover work that I use to finish off my chest at the end of my workout. CHEST 4… [Read more]

Day off!

Ah, finally, a day off with nothing to do except morning cardio. It’s been a rough couple of weeks, so I’m really looking forward to a lazy day. I’m going to go get my cardio done, eat breakfast and then watch DVDs all day with Lisa and the dogs. If my pager goes off, I swear that I will smash it with a sledgehammer. Registration for the October John Stone “100 Challenge” is now underway!… [Read more]

Server update; New arm workout details; October “100 Challenge” open for entry!

Last night was my 4th arm workout of this year’s bulk, so it was time to change my exercises around. I went back to last year’s logs and found a bicep/tricep superset workout that I had marked “insane”, and then I added an extra superset. While I was eating my second post-workout meal I kept having to stop and put my silverware down because my arms were so heavy and tired, and in bed later… [Read more]

Expect about an hour of forum downtime today.

As you may know from reading the past few daily news updates, there have been some issues related to the recent software upgrades (not the forum upgrade – that went very well. These particular problems are due to some system-level software upgrades). At some point today I’m probably going to need to take the forum down for about an hour while I work to resolve these last few problems. I apologize in advance for any… [Read more]

Bulking progress – three weeks in; Reminder about outages.

Today is the end of the third week of my bulk. I’m very happy with my gains so far, and I seem to be adding very little fat: as of this morning I’ve added 5.4 pounds.
