is this a good place to post some non sequiturs?

I want to play too, so I'm starting my poor person's weight training regimen.

So far it's been a backpack full of books with waist and chest straps on while doing a few sets of push ups and squats. Then I do some kettlebellish cleans, which work surprisingly well considering the bulkiness of the pack.

I'm starting with about 30 pounds of books, but I'm going to have to find something heavier to put in there because it's not quite enough.

More reps with a low weight is a better way to start.  THEN raise the weight.

Also, dumbells are surprisingly cheap, and they can be used to work complimentary muscles so you don't wind up all lopsided.

I'll check it out. My roommate might split the cost with me.

Yeah, a guy your size, you'd need a pair of the following sizes:  10 lb, 15 lb, 20 lb.  You should also have something resembling a bench, but it's not entirely necessary.


Probably can jerry-rig something with some pallets and foam.

I admire this thought process.

I might add that cinder blocks are stable, heavy, and cheap.

I was getting into a pretty good weight lifting routine this winter.  I work an 8 day rotating schedule, so it doesn't make sense for me to do like a M,W,F type thing.

Each workout I would do 3 sets of the following:

squats
dead lift
planks
leg raises (for abs)
bent over row
bench press
shrugs
shoulder raises
curls

I would follow this schedule:

day 1 - add a couple pounds and do 5 reps each set
day 2 - day off (I hate to say "rest")
day 3 - do 7 reps each set
day 4 - day off
day 5 - do 10 reps each set
day 6 - day off
day 7 - day off

by the time i get to 10 reps on everything, it's pretty difficult to finish a lot of the sets, but adding weight and starting over at 5 reps seems to keep me from hurting myself.

I work out at home so there's never a spotter around, so I try to keep from hurting myself.

I just got too busy with projects this summer to keep it up though - but, I can attest that putting in egress windows - digging the holes by hand and busting out the block with a sledgehammer - is quite a workout.  I also put a deck on my house - dug those holes by hand, too - post hole diggers are a great upper body workout.  Since I framed my deck with 6x6 posts and 2x10 joists with 2x12 rim joists, I got to muscle a bunch of lumber around, too.  I also helped my dad build a pole barn - that's about a thousand trips up and down a ladder, so I have been getting pretty good exercise.

One more egress window to put in my basement and I'll be getting back at the weight lifting, I think.  I kinda miss it and although I never felt like mush after my workouts, I always felt lighter and stronger and I was surprised at how much weight I was able to add to my workouts without hurting myself using this approach.

I was starting to feel like I was hitting a wall with weight, though - and was thinking I should maybe drop a little weight and do a few weeks of 10 reps without increasing the weight.

Thanks.

I am finding out it's so old the local diesel shop doesn't want to touch it.  Not enough computer for them to hook any diagnostics to.

Now to shop for a plow.  .  .

I bought a truck.

A diesel that smokes like a... uh... It smokes a lot.

I think I figured out why but I'm stuck at work and can't work on it and it's driving me crazy.

the funny thing is that, i'm pretty sure the reason that my truck is smoking is because it is retarded, literally

What kind of truck?

--Nigel, fapping.

'93 F250 Super Cab Long Box 7.3L IDI Diesel 5 speed manual.  Its seriously like 20 feet long. 

I advanced the timing a bunch and now it only smokes like a diesel is supposed to.

Niiice! I have a bit of a Ford truck fetish but it's generally localized to fifth and sixth generation.

This is my first Ford, first Diesel and first manual transmission (other than bikes)

What I get a kick out of is the '93 is the last year they ran this engine and, I think the last year for this body style.

My '07 KLR650 is the last year for that style.

They will both run the same motor oil.

So, I think it belongs in the fleet.

1) acquire dark glasses and cane
2) go to local "big box" store
3) shop as though you are blind causing minor disturbance
4) leave store
5) get in car and drive away

I think developing faith or believing in something is ok as long as you remember that whatever you chose to believe in is a choice that you made.

i have chosen to believe in certain things because my psyche can't cope with the alternative.  i realize that it is a choice and that the beliefs may be false.

i think it also has something to do with accepting one's own fallibility
