Keep getting better everyday; muscle growth and definition is very evident now. A new goal for me is to gain at least 10 more pounds of muscle by Christmas

Overall, I'm feeling so goddamn good at the moment. I have now done a slight increase into my routine and while the first time was a lot tougher I thought, I'm good now.

And best luck to Reim, your goal is hardcore, just focus and you'll get there



I cannot imagine toilet-free life.

Kebabs have a unique attribute compared to other consumables. To unlock this effect you need to wolf down a big ass kebab really fast, like under 10 minutes or so and wait for the effect to kick in. If done correctly your movements should feel unbelievably heavy to the point where you literally cannot move at all.

I am probably now in the best shape of my life for about 6 years. Doing cardio to cut right now and losing the weight it takesmostly lean muscle pretty easily. Not saying it is easy I just know how to do it well. A ton of cardio with only slightly reduced calorie intake. Lifting is different matter. I bulked up a ton in college and never lost most of it. I am at the point where I have to decide what is too big for me. So, now I try to lift for endurance more than bulk. It is a hard choice because I like lifting.

See that's the thing, the saying is so true:

"The day you begin lifting is the day you become forever small."

I'm going to be one of those people who doesn't necessarily have a goal in mind; I lift because I love it and it's a great outlet. I'm not sure when I'll be big enough, but I guess I'll know when I get there. I'll never be too bulky though because I lead a pretty active life.

I will be running a half-marathon this weekend! I've been running and training all summer. Lost about 15 lbs in the process -- all fat loss.

An announcement:

I have decided to take an indefinite leave of absence from the site, which means the thread will not be updated for some time. I hope that the regulars may continue to post in it at least a bit to keep up the thread's impression of being active; but if not I understand. I will continue to hit the gym hard and will even be taking up other active hobbies with the extra time I will receive by avoiding the internet.

Ironically I am leaving for health reasons. It isn't easy to say but what I'm dealing with is something I've had going on for quite some time now; something that just doesn't know how to go away. Last night something happened that slapped me in the face extremely hard. So I'm getting serious about it now, and that means my whole focus has to be on my life away from the timesink that is the internet.

It has nothing to do with the site. In fact I enjoyed my interactions with people here and I enjoyed making a positive contribution to the forums; something I was really going to focus on whhen I decided to apply for an ambassador position. But then my grades fell. All my job interviews resulted in dead ends. I realized that I had made one new friend this year from my college that I actually talk to. I rarely go out. I've made decisions that I really regret. All the time and effort I should have been putting into my real life responsibilities and relationships was instead poured into gaming and social media. I made the internet and video games a priority and made my real life play second fiddle. Once again it has nothing to do with the site and everything to do with the direction my life is heading right now.

There are so many things I need and want to do and I have been avoiding them and running to online forums in order to block out my problems. No more.

Cheers and a happy time to all. This isn't goodbye. There is always a way to communicate with me if you so wish to initiate a conversation. I will keep the same in mind.

Keep killing it!

Well that is saddening, I'll miss you RAM. I'll try to get more fit so you'll be surprised when you come back.

Hope everything works out for you!



All the best to Reim, sometimes you gotta change gears...it's tough

This is a good thread and conversation. I'd appreciate if this type of thread would exist, it could be this or brand new. I just want to keep the positivity going on.

One of the best trends seen in recent years is how the stigma of women lifting weights is going away. Use to be vast majority of women left free weights alone and were on tread mills or elliptical. Not that cardio is bad, I just like it when certain attitudes about having some muscles is not something looked down on in a woman.



Trust me, if you snatch or clean or jerk you know how challenging this is and how strong these competitors are.
