New features for Bronze+ members; Lisa going out of town.

I’ve added a new feature for Bronze-level and higher JSF members: you now have the ability to embed Youtube videos directly into your posts! It’s very easy to do. You can read more about how to embed your favorite videos in this thread. Another feature I’ve recently added for Bronze-level and higher JSF members is the ability to use oversized avatars up to 175×175 pixels. For a complete list of features and membership packages, check… [Read more]

End of 3rd month of bulking; Progress photos are important; Progress photo tips.

The end of my third month of bulking is drawing to a close. Normally I’d start cutting now, but (as you probably know) this year I’m going to bulk for an extra month. It will be interesting to see if the extra month produces good gains or diminishing returns. I’m not worried about adding more muscle (I will), but I am a little worried about my body fat percentage climbing too high, making the muscle… [Read more]

The New Encyclopedia of Modern Bodybuilding

This book is over 800 pages long, and is packed with information and photographs. Reading about bodybuilding from Arnold’s unique perspective is absolutely fascinating.

New “Favorite Things” item: The New Encyclopedia of Modern Bodybuilding.

Today I’d like to add a new item to my Favorite Things thread: The New Encyclopedia of Modern Bodybuilding (Revised Edition) by Arnold Schwarzenegger. I wish I’d bought this book a long time ago, but I didn’t get around to purchasing it until a few weeks back. Over the past few weeks I’ve been reading the book, and it’s amazing! The book is over 800 pages long, and is packed with information and photographs. Reading… [Read more]

End of the month progress and stats.

It’s the last Monday of the month, and that means it’s time once again to take my measurements and see how I’m progressing. I always take my measurements on Monday morning, so unless something changes over the next few days (I’ll check again on Friday), I have my end-of-month stats for November. Here are my current stats compared to my 2006 bulk starting stats, which were taken on September 1st (all measurements taken “cold”/no pump):… [Read more]

Early arm measurement; AtLarge 10% off sale!

My AM cardio is done, and now I’ve got nothing to do today but rest these tired, aching muscles. The last three workouts have been totally brutal! I don’t do my “official” measurements until tomorrow morning, but I couldn’t resist putting a tape around my arm this morning and was happy to see that they’ve reached 18.25 inches (unpumped)! By the end of my bulk (December 31st) my arms should be approaching (or at) 18.75… [Read more]

New tweak to my arm workouts; New picture.

Last night I tried something slightly different for my arm workout: I reduced my rest intervals across the board in an effort to ratchet up the intensity level to new levels. My bicep/tricep superset workouts are already brutal, as (of course) there is no rest between the biceps and triceps portion of each superset. Reducing the amount of rest between each superset to just 45 seconds and to just 1 minute between each new set… [Read more]

Thanksgiving pictures/workout picture; December “100 Challenge” registration.

Yesterday’s Thanksgiving feast and workout (delts/traps/calves) went off without a hitch! All the food came out perfect, and the whole family had a fun and relaxing day. We didn’t take many pictures this year, so I didn’t have enough to make an entire album as I usually do. I did post the few pictures that we did take in last night’s entry to my media journal. Here they are. I also posted a picture from… [Read more]

Happy Thanksgiving; New delts/traps/calves workout.

I can’t believe that the 2006 holiday season is already upon us. I’d like to wish those who celebrate it a very Happy Thanksgiving! Today I’ll be roasting the turkey and making the mashed potatoes with roasted garlic, biscuits, stuffing and gravy. Lisa is on cranberry detail, and Lisa’s mom is making green bean and sweet potato casseroles and the deserts (pumpkin and apple pie). I’m not going to let all that great food go… [Read more]

Thanksgiving day workout plans.

I was thinking about doing tomorrow’s regular workout (delts/traps/calves) today, but I think I’m going to do it on my normal day. I’ll just do the workout earlier than usual, say around 11:30 AM (after my first two meals). That way my workout won’t interfere with Thanksgiving dinner, and I can take advantage of all the Thanksgiving food for PWO (Post Work Out) meal #2! Tomorrow will definitely be this week’s cheat meal. I won’t… [Read more]
