    Hey I know what you mean about the pictures, man. It takes a lot of guts to post your half naked ass on the internet for a bunch of strangers to look at. I just posted progress pics in my journal and I felt a hesitant. But hey, just think how good you'll feel when you can post vastly improved pics in a couple months?

    Yeah, that's motivation alright! I decided to keep my bulk going. It was more a self confidence thing than anything else. Thanks for the comments.

    Do you have a weight goal that you are working towards? How much have you gained so far?

    Cocoa- Thanks for dropping by bro. New readers always welcome.

    Bradley- I haven't weighed myself. I don't even have a scale. I know that doesn't make sence when I am trying to gauge myself. I know I have definately gained some fat in my stomach, but I can see my muscles getting bigger. I think my biggest problem was doing ZERO cardio. I have a SLOOOOW metabolism to start with, so that doesn't help either. I think with 3 day a week cardio until spring that this will get better. I understand that it may hinder muscle growth slightly, but I will try to keep that to a minimum with the HIIT training which supposedley specifically targets the fat.

    I agree. I perform cardio year round, even when bulking. I like to stay in some sort of cardiovascular shape. I wouldn't really worry about cutting because you will get plenty of cardio work once you start training for football as you said. Take care man.

    Damn. Yesterdays workout felt AWESOME. I wish they would all go like that! I felt very strong, and overall good. My bi's are absolutely fried this morning. I was actually surprised that the 135lbs went that easy. I will up that weight next week. Sleep is back down again, but I plan to get to bed early tonight.

    I'm not sure what I'm going to be doing on Friday for weights, if any. I may have to make up for it in Saturday because of V day. I got a TON of stuff I need to do before my wife gets home from work, including dinner. I'm cooking baked haddock with a garlic sauce (shrimp roasted in the sauce), white cheddar mashed potato's, and asparagus with hollandaise sauce. Plenty of white wine, and of course flowers, candles, etc. Should be fun. That is all for now.

    Damn. Yesterdays workout felt AWESOME. I wish they would all go like that! I felt very strong, and overall good. Only one complaint is with my inclines. I don't know if I just exhausted my chest with the flat bench, but I couldn't do crao on inclines this week. I did go to beyond failure on three sets, maybe that has something to do with it? I dunno. My bi's are absolutely fried this morning. I was actually surprised that the 135lbs went that easy. I will up that weight next week. Sleep is back down again, but I plan to get to bed early tonight.

    Workout was going good until the lateral raises. I now remember why I donít do these. Last time I did, even with a small weight, I pinched a nerve. I really donít understand. AS SOON as I started the lateral raises, I felt the tension. It doesnít happen with front raises, or rear delt raises. Only to the side. Anyway, I felt the tension with the 25ís so I dropped the weight. Same thing with the 15ís. I finished my sets, but when I went to do the military presses, I felt A LOT of strain, like it was getting ready to pop like it did before, so I only did one set of presses. I can turn my head both ways now, but weíll see what it feels like after I sleep on it tonight. Iíll update in the morning. That is all.

    LOL. Thanks for pointing that out bro. It is now fixed. hehe Yeah I just squat with my truck strapped to my back.

    I have a physical coming up in March. I'll ask my doc to maybe give me a referal to se someone about it. It doesn't seem normal to have it come back like that.

    HMMMMM, just for the hell of it, speaking of my truck, I'm gonna post a picture. Anyways, thanks for the comments.

    Very nice vehicle you have. The black one next to it is cool too. Can I ask why both hoods were open? (not that it matters)

    It was at an anual meeting. Basically we just all get together to check out each others rides. Mine now has new rims and some other stuff. The hoods were open just so we can check out the engines.

    Good session. I set a PB with the deads. I know that's not much weight for most of you all, but I was still happy. I added wrong last week when I got 0 reps. I actually had 420 on the bar. I dropped to 405 and pulled three. I was happy.

    Work was cancelled for today. Could have had something to do with the twenty-freakin-eight inches of snow we got! Anyways, I absolutely fried my bi's. I figured the 155 would be easy since I got 12 of the 115, think again! OUCH. Anyways, I will get back to posting my diet. I did eat good, I just have some catching up to do at work, so I can't spend that long typing today. Anyway, that is all for now.
