I had cats for 19 years and I really don't miss those tiny rocks from the litterbox, it somehow managed to drag round the entire apartment.


Haha, we keep the litter box in the sun room. Hence = poop scooped once a week. Yeah, the litter dragging is a pain...And we have a medium fur so furrrrrrrrrrrrrr everywhere...But she's cute so we keep her around.

Yeah I was. I need to stop testing the waters and just give up.

You need to start thinking about what you're doing before you hurt yourself.

Well, I thought long and hard, "Should I 1RM today? I might hurt myself but if I do it correctly, I might set a PR!" "What to do...What to do...Ahhh shit, I'm way passed my in between set rest time!" "Fuck it! I'm just gonna bro it out!!!" PR set!

 

I've just rediscovered how great side bends are with a 45 plate! Haven't done these in years.

but aren't cats total assholes though?

also never had/will have a pet. I really can't understand why people keep pets in huge cities, seems like the animals suffer from dwelling in an apartment most of the time. Prolly just me though.

New study with informative and detailed, yet simple to understand, guidelines for natural bodybuilders:

 

Recommendations for natural bodybuilding contest preparation: resistance and cardiovascular training.
 
Quote:
The anabolic effect of resistance training can mitigate muscle loss during contest preparation. In reviewing relevant literature, we recommend a periodized approach be utilized. Block and undulating models show promise. Muscle groups should be trained 2 times weekly or more, although high volume training may benefit from higher frequencies to keep volume at any one session from becoming excessive. Low to high (~3--15) repetitions can be utilized but most repetitions should occur in the 6--12 range using 70--80% of 1 repetition maximum. Roughly 40--70 reps per muscle group per session should be performed, however higher volume may be appropriate for advanced bodybuilders. Traditional rest intervals of 1--3 minutes are adequate, but longer intervals can be used. Tempo should allow muscular control of the load;; 1-- 2sec concentric and 2--3sec eccentric tempos. Training to failure should be limited when performing heavy loads on taxing exercises, and primarily relegated to single--joint exercises and higher repetitions. A core of multi--joint exercises with some single--joint exercises to address specific muscle groups as needed should be used, emphasizing full range of motion and proper form. Cardiovascular training can be used to enhance fat loss. Interference with strength training adaptations increases concomitantly with frequency and duration of cardiovascular training. Thus, the lowest frequency and duration possible while achieving sufficient fat loss should be used. Full--body modalities or cycling may reduce interference. High intensities may as well;; however, require more recovery. Fasted cardiovascular training may not have benefits over fed--state and could be detrimental.

Yup, one of the cats I had growing up, used to wake my mother up every morning by biting her on the nose, whenever we had guest it hid, UNLESS they were scared, didn't like cats or were allergic, then she was like oh word how about I sit on your lap the entire evening.

She also used to hunt for mice and birds and every morning she would leave the nights catch on the door step with surgically removed heart and liver, she got put down at 19, as she had gone blind.

I have a small dog in an apartment and he doesn't mind, but I walk him 3 times a day, if you don't you shouldn't have one.

Is it me or was her butt off of the bench? I wonder how her back feels after chest day.

post #46049 of 48525
Yeah her arch is ridiculous
post #46050 of 48525
There's a gal at my gym with an almost identical bench setup. Dunno what her max competition bench is, but I've seen her do 100kg touch and go (competes at 114 and 123lb). Even with that huge arch, the butt cheeks are still touching the bench.
