    Who's Journal Do You Read The Most?

    Excluding Belial's journal , which journal do you frequent the most?

    I read:

    CanadianHomer
    Big Bad Chasey
    Maki Fit Blog

    At Large: Optimize Your Body | Dynamic Conditioning |
    My articles on Wannabebig

    "Soli Deo Gloria"
    "Test all things; hold fast what is good.": 1 Thessalonians 5:21

    "I do not understand what I do. For what I want to do I do not do, but what I hate I do. And if I do what I do not want to do, I agree that the law is good. As it is, it is no longer I myself who do it, but it is sin living in me. I know that nothing good lives in me, that is, in my sinful nature. For I have the desire to do what is good, but I cannot carry it out. For what I do is not the good I want to do; no, the evil I do not want to do--this I keep on doing. Now if I do what I do not want to do, it is no longer I who do it, but it is sin living in me that does it.
    So I find this law at work: When I want to do good, evil is right there with me. For in my inner being I delight in God's law; but I see another law at work in the members of my body, waging war against the law of my mind and making me a prisoner of the law of sin at work within my members. What a wretched man I am! Who will rescue me from this body of death? Thanks be to God--through Jesus Christ our Lord!"
    Romans 7:14-25

    The journal section is my favorite section, I read almost every single journal, but I usually post in these...
    drew's
    Scott's
    Hahn's
    Kenn's
    Cocoa's
    juniormint's
    Max Mex
    Ruless
    aka's

    I think the most "exciting" journal would have to be Kenn's maybe. Also aka's journal is really interesting because he keeps very detailed info and well, aka is freaking ripped, he must be doing something right hehe.
    I'm sure I'm missing some, this is just off the top of my head, but yea I usually read all of them.

    Here's how it breaks down for me...

    To learn something...
    Powerman
    Borris
    Uncle Pauly
    Blitzforce
    IceRgrrl

    For diet stuff...
    Pup (recipes and just ideas)
    Galileo (and for entertainment)

    For entertainment...:
    Budiak
    ectx
    ryan1117

    to spam
    rookie
    Squarehead
    Mik
    Wikked1
    Carolinagirl
    JustinF

    guys i've worked out with
    pagan058
    cphafner

    when i want to feel bad about myself
    Chase
    Alex


    Other's I'm not as regular as I would like but I pop in a couple others from time to time when I've offered advice and I want to make sure nobody got hurt because of it. Others I've looked in on to watch their progress is Frannie, Tank23, and Bruteman.

    Okay, so that's a list of them. If I've left you out, know that I'm there lurking and you need to update your journal more often.

    I really only read ryan1117's and HomeYield's. I should consider starting one of my own, but I'm sure I'd be too lazy to manage it. Perhaps in the future.

    I think that the journals are one of the better forums for learning. I've read some great debates, discussions and advice in the journal forums.

    I pretty much lurk in a lot of people's journal, occasionally asking a question here or there.
    "It is often said, mainly by the "no-contests", that although there is no positive evidence for the existence of God, nor is there evidence against his existence. So it is best to keep an open mind and be agnostic. At first sight that seems an unassailable position, at least in the weak sense of Pascal's wager. But on second thought it seems a cop-out, because the same could be said of Father Christmas and tooth fairies. There may be fairies at the bottom of the garden. There is no evidence for it, but you can't prove that there aren't any, so shouldn't we be agnostic with respect to fairies?"

    Richard Dawkins


    "Out of all of the sects in the world, we notice an uncanny coincidence: the overwhelming majority just happen to choose the one that their parents belong to. Not the sect that has the best evidence in its favour, the best miracles, the best moral code, the best cathedral, the best stained glass, the best music: when it comes to choosing from the smorgasbord of available religions, their potential virtues seem to count for nothing, compared to the matter of heredity. This is an unmistakable fact; nobody could seriously deny it. Yet people with full knowledge of the arbitrary nature of this heredity, somehow manage to go on believing in their religion, often with such fanaticism that they are prepared to murder people who follow a different one."

    I don't have as much time to spam as I used to, so I'm forced to limit myself. The ones I'm subscribed to are:

    Borris, HY, IceR, Belial, Gal, Budiak, PowerMajt...*takes a breath*... Frannie, Rookie, Pup, Tryska. And, of course, mine. That's a full-time job, in and of itself.


    You see why I have so little free time.




    God. I look like a mod groupie.

    I really like to go through about everyones'. But generally if I see Will's, Alex's, Maki's, Budiak's, Galileo's, Rookie's or a few others, I go right to them. I don't post a whole lot in them, but I definitely like to read a lot of them.

    Best way to cheat on deadlifts...

    Stand there for a few minutes, then pace back and forth a lot, huff and puff, wait until everybody's looking. Approach the bar. Back off. Approach it again. Back off. Get some water. Chalk up. Approach the bar again. Then spray some more chalk around. Wait until people start losing interest. When nobody's looking, pick it a little off the floor, and slam it down. Jump up and yell "LIGHT WEIGHT BABY". Then give high fives all around. - Belial
