I do an extensive warm up before training. As an older guy, it is imperative that I do so. First, I do some things to get fluid in all my joints: calves raises, body weight squats, push-ups,...

Not sure what you mean by "rep goal system" or why you think you need to deload. You've only been working out for 4 months - don't think you're quite an "intermediate" level lifter yet. You're...

No, not on any meds but numerous supps. I take chromium and cinnamon both of which are supposed to help with blood sugar. Must not be working that great, though.

Hey Brute - Thanks for chiming in. My a1c was good - 5.0. So, I guess overall I'm not too concerned. I find myself to be miserable if I cut my carbs much lower than I currently have them (on...

Hey Elf - I'm no expert, but, I'll try to help. There is the standard BB macro split of 40%C, 40%P, 20%F (I've seen this criticized as old and out-dated). I like to play around with my macro...

I'd take that any day of the week over this freakin' humidity! Bad here again today in Chicago. Wouldn't mind so much if the floor's wouldn't get so damn slippery.

I am not sure your BP med is affecting your pump. At least, it didn't with me. I didn't get a pump while on it, and I don't get a pump off of it (well, I do occasionally, but it's rare). I...

Humidity - It really, really sucks

It was extremely humid this morning here in Chicago. The air was so heavy it was hard to breathe and the sweat was just pouring out of me. Moreover, the high humidity caused the cement floor to be...
