Weekly stats; Will it blend?

I’m a day late, but this morning I’ve took my weekly measurements and body fat reading…

I did put on a little fat over the past week. My waist size has increased slightly (1/4 of an inch) and my body fat reading is 8.3% (as measured using a 7-site pinch test with the FatTrack PRO Digital Body Fat Calipers from the JSF Amazon Mall). All my other measurements remained the same.

This Saturday night I’m going out to dinner, but I think after that dinner I’m not going to have any more cheat meals for the entire month of September. I’ll be starting my 2007 bulk in about a month, and I don’t want to be above 8% body fat going into this bulk. One of my goals on this bulk is to not get above 12% body fat at any point. It’s going to be a clean, slow and controlled bulk. My main focus on this bulk will be to bring up my lagging muscle groups: rear & side delts, traps and chest. I’m sure I’ll put on size in other areas, but I’m going to attack my weakest areas with new exercises and different techniques. More on that over the next few weeks…

I use my blender a lot – at least twice every day. Most blenders seem to have trouble with ice, and they eventually burn up and die with regular use. I put ice in all my protein shakes, and I’ve destroyed 3 or 4 blenders over the past few years. I’m tired of buying new ones, and this time I decided to do something about it. I’m sure most of you have seen some the “Will it blend?” videos, which (for the uninitiated) is a very effective “viral” ad campaign for Blendtec blenders. For example:

…and my personal favorite, the destruction of a brand new iPhone:

These blenders are not cheap, but they are amazingly powerful and designed to withstand years and years of use and abuse. I decided to bite the bullet and order one yesterday. It will be here in a few hours. I’m looking forward to trying it out! It easily turns ice into snow, so it should make amazing protein shakes. I’ll post my thoughts after I’ve had a chance to use it for a few days. For more cool videos, check out the Will It Blend? website.
