1 month after the last cigarette
* Circulation improves.
* You experience more energy.
Yes, its bad news. It is inconvenient to go through such a major life change as giving up smoking. But, I am weaning myself off and plan to quit (kick) on Thursday, so wish me luck.
Yes Sir, I do know!Hooah.
You know what it means.
Just dont end up like this guy.
The best and safest way to go IMO
Yes Sir, I do know!
To bluekey88: I have heard that crossfit is wicked good for fitness. I am trying to get bigger, though, so I will do this training instead. As soon as I get strong (3x5 ==> the central nervous system gets more efficient, to recruit more motor nerves), then I'll lift with high reps (slinging the heavy weights around), and I will get h00ge, if things go according to plan!
Well, you all are the best here, and I really enjoy
this board. But I have to let you all know that I
am giving up the TKD for the bodybuilding. Yes,
the iron sport. I am hooked. I have been going to
the weight lifting gymnasium for about 6 months now,
and decide that it is my way.
I have recently had a discussion with some weight
lifter who told me that I was doing things all wrong.
Well, how is that for a fine how-do-you-do? Right.
I will now engage in the stronglifts.com 5x5 method
for at least 2 months. If I gain strength nicely, I
will keep on it until I can squat my own body weight
times 1.5. That's right -- one and one half times
my own mass with the squat. At that time I will
discard the 5x5 for the body building / isolation
exercises, because I will then have a strong base.
I will not practice the Scott-Little method, because
I prefer the full range of motion -- big motions.
They are more pleasing to me. After all, I am a TKD
man at heart, and I like BIG, explicit motions!
I have started taking the creatine and the protein
powder, because I do not eat much red meat or fish.
I do know that form is EVERYTHING! As I start this
journey (on Monday -- that will be the first day of
the 5x5!) I have to make sure my technique is good.
The squat, IF DONE WITH PROPER FORM, can be GOOD
for the knees. I will study and try to learn this,
and also try to get feedback from some adept lifter
in my gym.
So, I will continue to look at this nice board, but
also will surf to other communities where people
lift, to get BIG. All show, no go. That's me.
I want to look like a freaking million dollars from
the neck down by this time next year. I also want
to have sufficient knowledge of this "iron sport"
to not get injury in my neck up!
So, wish me luck!
I also want to show you one video that I think is
funny. It is of a powerlifter named Kirk Karwoski.
You can't really tell what is going on in the video
because there is no sound. But it looks as though
someone asks him to pose, and then he waves them
off, as if to say, "Enough of that sissy posing, I
am a power lifter, not a bodybuilder!"
