Mjaddara is such a simple but delicious dish.

Can also cook the lentils with the rice in the rice cooker which makes it ridiculously easy

On this note, I think when I use free weights and cables for chest that my biceps are "stealing" activation away from my pecs. It sucks.

Having a hard time getting back into the swing of a diet...

Focusing on literally the easiest things I can do healthwise. So far, I've got the four biggest anti-inflammatory spices on my Costco breakfast faux-sausages and in my coffee (turmeric with pepper, cayenne, ginger, oregano) and foods with beneficial amounts of live cultures -- kimchee, sauerkraut, and kefir in place of juice/smoothies.

Not much to do with weight, but studies show the health benefits could be immense down the road...

I'm alternating between terrible workouts and solid ones. This might be a sign it's time to change programming.

Got a Blender Bottle as an add on from an Amazon order. Thing works like a charm. Added another 10# to the bench today but need to start dieting and lose 10#.

remember to balance it out with back & 'pulling' muscles (vs pushing exercises like bench, press, etc)

Yup, I'm happy with my Blender Bottles. The whisk ball works as advertised to break up even the most stubborn chunks of powder.

Nice job on adding weight to your bench! I've been losing weight since January (down about 15 lbs body weight), and sadly my bench strength has started to go down. But I feel better overall and it's nice to see a hint of abs again, heh.

The only thing that's stopping me from cutting right now is that I'm in spitting distance of milestones on my bench and press. Hopefully it doesn't take long to get there.

I've had some bad elbow tendinitis from squats holding me back on my bench. Today I realized that the 2 bars we have are not the same diameter and switched to squatting with the skinnier bar. No elbow tendinitis today!

Good advice. Doing lat pulldowns with body weight, upright and bent rows. My lats have never been impressive but I do what needs to get done.

So, clarification on dropping a few pounds for me...not "cutting." Cutting is what you young trim guys do. I just lose a few inches off my gut. laugh.gif

My wife is rotating in some 31 day yoga program and I did two days of it with her. I have no idea what I'll get out of it, but it relaxes me. My posture is terrible in the sense that my chest/shoulders are so tight, so I figured in addition to my usual stretching I'd try yoga. I've always enjoyed training my back, so I think my chest/shoulder tightness is just the way I'm put together and not a result of poor training habits. I hope I can overcome it through stretching, which I'll admit has been inconsistent in the past. I'm trying to do it daily now.

I've seen some people get good results with yoga, if your primary goal is just to look better. Especially if you're older (well, style forvm older), flexibility is that X factor that can make you seem much younger.

Yoga is hard for me (tight hips), but is really helpful with flexibility and stabilizer muscles
post #57449 of 57477
I stopped doing yoga and just did a self-directed stretching routine and I like it a lot more.

Yoga has just too much other shit than the stuff i want out of it.

Really let myself go over the winter season; sitting at 5'10, 170lbs probably 14-15% bf. Having a tremendously hard time this year shedding weight. Starting cutting about a month ago and I'm only down a pound. I've also noticed more body aches this year than others, I swear hitting 30 has made this all a lot more difficult! patch[1].gif

Cutting on 2k cal and I've brought back squash or badminton a couple times a week, after doing nil cardio the past 4-5 months. Wonder what I need to do to accelerate the cut.

Not pleased how I look in jeans + clothes when I'm this weight, feel so much more comfortable when I'm 160-165 lbs.
