    $5???!!!! Are they organic?

    Please add bent over barbell rows to that list. You gotta have a strong upper back, too!

    Hmmm, it's been awhile since I took an exercise physiology class but I've always though Cardio is more of a fat burning work out while anaerobic training, ie. weight training is a carb burning work out. BRB, gonna go do some skull crushers.

    Is it wrong of me to say pics or it didn't happen?

    Hmmm, why are most of your pics side ways?

    @capnwes I've lost 30 lbs. in 2 months by eating nothing more than veggies and meat, plus taking vitamin supplements, and weight training 6 days a week for 45 min. to an hour a day, with no cardio. It's all about the diet, really. I break up my meals into 6 to 7 a day. All small meals. That way I don't feel hungry at all. I don't take any protein supplements. I eat about anywhere from 6 to 10 egg whites a day, hard boiled, plus all the chicken and fish I can eat. lol Let us know how you do!

    Oh yeah, speaking of lifting, I once had a skinny trainer at some gym told me I'm lifting wrong or some shit like that...I think I was doing flat bench and I wasn't letting the bar touch my chest or something like that...I was in my top shape at that time, 190 lbs. 13% body fat. I was like BRO!

    which car was this? ferrari has more soul?? you must be kidding... you underestimate the soul that goes in to "Jap Muscle" cars, THE soul, and pride, of japan's engineering prowess.

    it's no secret that i loathe ferrari's, but i just want you guys to be safe, and in Spoo's "wow factor" 100k category? i would go with an Audi R8, Honda NSX (turbo'd), or a 2011 GTR.
    - well made cars.
    most importantly, research your options before buying, with most companies offering at least one model with a defect, choose one that has no known issues. - Like mine [​IMG]

    @div25sec9 , jelly. Supra's are tits!!!!!!!. nearly bought a mk3 type r twin turbo last year. still think about it.......... hmmmmm.....


    if Spoo's has been declared safe, i'm glad about that.i really do like Spoo, and voice concern meaning well.
    and still look forward to the SF Race in summer. who's game?

    What your body metabolizes for energy is a function of energetics and intensity not the specific 'sport' one is partaking in. Your body's zones are unique though they fall into ranges based on your lactic acid buffering capabilities. Usually, these are put in heart rate zones, but fat metabolism is least energy utilizing and occurs in the so called cardio range, which adjusts into carb utilization, and then can even cannibalize muscle though this happens more for endurance athletes that don't eat well during work outs. At the end of the day calories in<calories out means weightloss. The macro breakdowns are important because your body takes more time to process and digest proteins and fats which leads to feeling full for longer which means less feelings of hunger and reduced tendency to snack and eat shit food. That's why people lose weight doing everything from only cardio to only lifting and everything in between. It's just science.

    Farm Fresh, Free Range and Cage Free Brother. If you've never had fresh eggs, let me tell you, they are 10 times more delicious than the 3-6 month old eggs you find at the grocery store. Those little dates they stamp on the eggs these days mean nothing. If you can no longer smell the chickens taint on the egg, it ain't fresh.

    The wife has been begging me to get our own chickens, but our dog would definitely eat them on day one.

    Quality is always better than quantity, right? This week has been somewhat slow, but I came away with a couple of good finds.

    First up, huge shoutout to @brianG for a great trade and my new favorite jacket:

    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]


    Vintage French Work Jacket - N/A

    [​IMG]

    I'm not sure if I've ever seen one with a tag like this:

    [​IMG]

    And surely one of the gnarliest finds I've ever had:

    Polo Ralph Lauren Brown Double Rider Jacket - US Small - Available.

    Not sure if it's horsehide or cowhide. It's pretty pliable, so I think cowhide, but it could also have just been worn to hell. Has the hangtag from a RRL/Polo store dated 7/96 in one of the pockets. Conmar zippers. Details galore. [​IMG]
