5100mg of sodium... holy hypertension Batman

And that is solid advice Charly.... its tough though. I have been hovering around 190 since the start of the year despite trying to bulk. I just don't like to gain weight. I am gonna push to 205 though.

*EDIT* How the fuck do I keep hitting the first post every single time, this is ridiculous.

Some cardio will increase work capacity too. Not going to make gains if after 3 sets your too exhausted to do anything else

Speaking of high blood pressure, just saw a 12 year old that weighs 240lbs and has a blood pressure of 190/100

Ordered a shitload of tests, PRAYING that they come back abnormal.

I know this is a generalization but most Asian cuisine isn't very gains friendly (high starchy carbs and sugar/low protonz).

Man, my life has just been work, gym, study. Finished my final paper on MBS/CDO product in the economic crisis, just have the final left, rest of the time up to June 1st is studying for the CFA, then right on to getting a perfect score on the GMAT. Reading study material on the treadmill is actually sort of fun.

finished hacking up the multigym. hobo-den gets an upgrade to hobo-den 2.0

warning: shitload of pics in my filthy garage
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)


before. to those about to be hacksawed, we salute you



that won't do



chop chop, in retrospect i should have cut on the other side of that hook as it serves as an anchor for the bottom cable. not a big deal though as i can just anchor it with any attachment



much better



not my most aesthetic work, but it'll hold



this is the portion of the unit that would normally anchor the two pec dec arms. its supposed to hang upside down, but i flipped it to point upwards and secured it to my rack using u-bolts. unfortunately i derped with my measurements so it isnt flush and perpendicular, although it is secured very tightly. i might get wider u-bolts and put that piece behind the rack crosspiece which would allow it to be vertical, but i can't be bothered right now



success! hobo-den 2.0 is born. at the bottom you can see the leg extension turned into a swing apparatus. this thing fucking owns bones and is 110% better than using kbs/dbs for swings, especially if you are stuck with wide as hell oly handles which only allow you to do swings in a stupid wide sumo stance. two main issues: one, i need a longer bottom cable as i can't get full rom for curls or pullthroughs although rows are fine. two, im missing the two bottom spacers underneath the stack so i actually can't fit the selector pin into the lowest two plates. easy fix though



now wtf do i do with this stuff, any bright ideas?



keeping in the theme of free shit, fully working treadmill my neighbours didn't want. im going to use it for treadmill pushing as a change of pace from speed rope. also see mark vi tdi jetta chopped into an el camino, bish is riding on airbags with dem rimmzzzz aw yea

so yeah that is my $100 rack + high/low cable pulley. i look forward to less fucking around with bands, although given there are only 120lbs on the stack my next challenge is to find a way to incorporate band tension into this, which might be as simple as just looping a band across the top of the rack and around the bar. will still need a way to add tension to the lower pulley though.

Feeling some intermittent knee soreness. I think it is related to getting back into deadlifts. Not too significant as of now but hoping to nip it in the bud. Any suggestions on strengthening/stretching that area? Can you even really strengthen/stretch your knees?

terminal knee extensions have helped me, i dont know if they're a one-size-fits-all movement but it shouldnt hurt to try http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZscBVtoX62U

exactly what it looks like. everything behind the front seats got cut down and rebuilt up by hand by me and the old man, and it was a real royal pain in the ass to sand it smooth enough to be painted. the interior is pretty much unfinished but its drive-able at least.

why, you mirin??

its my dad's hobby, he's a retired mechanic so he spends his days chopping up jettas and building cars because he can. he's built a 1981 vw rabbit pickup and now this jetta, pretty cool shit. i drive a plain old jetta tdi which is a great fucking car, sup 1000km/tank mileage.
