    Sorry, drinking coffee and waking up, will get a picture later.

    By the way, thank you - your references to the Manning brothers & Tony Dungy were so incredibly spot on and they made me laugh out loud.
    "Ack, Nosferatu!!" was in fact my first reaction to Coach smiling like a jack-o-lantern lol

    Although the movie is a little odd & slow moving, Willem Defoe playing Nosferatu in ďShadow of the VampireĒ was brilliant.

    Tuesday was legs, abs & treadmill. Yesterday was a rest day as I tweaked my damn shoulder again doing some overhead house stuff. It didnít stop me from lifting a fork or wine glass later however @ our favorite Italian place. The pic below was the most delicate prosciutto that weíve ever eaten & the burrata cheese was insane.

    Today was arms and back. Got to ice down and then put on some THC cream later.

    Current trend in reading is about the drug trade, particularly the change in the meth formula and fentanyl. Also reading a book called ďBlitzedĒ on how it was those good old Germans that came up with meth & then supplied it to the nazi soldiers. As a side effect of the reading we decided to start to rewatch ďBreaking BadĒ. Just three episodes in, I forgot how quick it started and how damn incredible a show it was.

    Trust me, if they had some inked bad-girl guitar teacher, Iím there. Fortunately that is not the case.

    First lesson done, a few days of practice complete. This may have some potential.

    Dodged a bullet, thought I might have caught the flu the past 2 days, but better today. Upper body, abs & elliptical.

    Finally getting some much needed rain here.

    Here you go. My ex students also chose something I could grow with a while and not be tempted to upgrade quickly.

    Day 5 brought an unexpected surprise. Suddenly, my fingers naturally formed the two power chords Iíve been struggling with because my fingers refused to cooperate. The tab music is understandable & Iím literally enjoying practicing and not dreading it.

    Pull day today. Hit my biceps hard with drop sets, it felt wonderful. Bring on the Chargers vs. Chiefs game in 46 minutes!

    Damn ďcoldĒ weather. Low back is stiff and achy and my shoulder is like a non-stop toothache.

    Tip-toed through a push routine: hitting chest, Delts and triceps and then abs. Anything that caused the slightest increase in shoulder pain was immediately ditched, which left not so much. Havenít done the THC cream again, thinking itís time.

    Pissed that Cleveland is missing their top 2 quarterbacks for todayís game. However, I like that the NFL is now minimizing testing for vaxed players and waiting for ďsymptomsĒ to appear (yet leaving it to an honor basis). Right there, playoffs are saved. Omicron appears to be milder, the players are in their 20s and 30s; I think this a prudent move.

    Time for some guitar practice, also time to switch instructors. Only took 2x to realize that this dude is not for me.

    Normal warm up with pec deck. I keep trying to increase the stretch on my pecs and shoulders & itís working well.

    Preacher curls, preacher hammer curls & reverse curls. Drops on last set for each. Machine curls with SLOW negatives and a double drop.

    Lat pull downs, low hammer rows, shrugs & reverse Pec Dec.

    Last week, had to talk to two knuckle heads that pissed off my wife at the gym. The only stationary cycles are by a row of popular machines & they kept taking their masks off. Hey there was two of them and they were much younger, so I didnít feel like a bully or an a-hole.

    Fingers are gaining some muscle memory and relaxing on the frets. Lunch then practice.

    So tying resistance training to guitar.

    First and foremost, it didnít dawn on me initially that the lack of most of my external rotation (Left RC is pretty much gone) was going to hamper guitar. Turns out, moving up the fret is difficult, particularly the first 2. I have about 20 degrees (out of 90) of ER, likely due to the rear delt, which does assist minimally. So started a resistance program for that. Just ordered wrist weights that go up in 2 oz. increments (yup, itís that weak).

    Finger strength is another. I realized that grip strength (which I have a lot of) doesnít really relate all that much to proper finger usage on the frets. Also, my hand size which should allow me a lot of spread on the frets, just shrivels up because keeping your fingers spread & simultaneously using them independently is amazingly difficult. So, thank you Amazon. I was shocked that I had to start extra light, but for proper finger usage, I had to.

    Digging the guitar, donít care if itís going to take me forever to get proficient. Iím just marveling at learning the independent finger usage and strength from a more physiological/anatomical perspective. Iím finding that I have to take frequent breaks & limit practice time as my finger control starts to degrade due to fatigue.

    That said, I will play like Doyle one day, but just wonít look nearly as bad-ass.

    I like that Schecter as well. It's a little thing, but I like having 3 tuners on each side of the head. Just makes my slightly OCD brain feel better.

    How do you hold the guitar when you are seated? "Conventional" or "classical"? There are maybe more proper terms, but what I'm calling conventional has you place the main curve of the guitar body on your left leg for right handed player, and right leg for a left handed player.

    "Classical" has the main curve sitting on the right leg for a right handed player, left leg for a left handed player. I prefer classical, but that may be because my short a** arms have an easier time walking the entire fret board with the guitar in that position.

    Something to look at anyhow.

    BTW, I'm assuming you are right handed as that looks like a right handed guitar, unless you think inconveniencing yourself like Jimi Hendrix had to will get you closer to his ability quicker lol

    PS - Eddie Ate Dynamite Good Bye Eddie

    TY Cy! Just naturally I drifted to classical. It does help with my movement on the frets. I may also move the neck more forward so the guitar is slightly pointed forward & keep the head/neck a tad lower.

    Completely honest, no way would I keep at this at all if not retired. Sorry, off hours while working need to be as relaxed as possible.

    Helped an old lady down the stairs (not my wife) by the gym and karma repaid me with a great workout w/zero pain.
    Pec Dec
    Hammer shoulder press
    Hammer incline press
    Machine lateral raises
    Pressdowns
    Triceps Extension Machine

    Single leg leg press (a continued yikes)
    Calve machine
    Hip Abd
    Ab machine

    Elliptical

    Learned my lesson from last time as my wife wanted a bagel again, so I pulled the trigger as well. For me: onion bagel, egg patty, ham & mozzarella cheese. Munching on it now.

    For some reason, probably the evening's festivities so far, I read that bold bit as "... my wife wanted a beagle again..."

    Lol! I went to bed last night reading the original post from you and thinking ďis it me, why am I so befuddled by this; Beagles?Ē

    Last week started back to a 4 day split & am enjoying it. Nice muscle soreness. Rest day today. Got to start looking at PSL for a reorder; all of the HGH discussion in the A-lounge is making me want to add a second dose in the afternoon again.

    Garbage weather, but God knows, we need the rain out here.

    Regarding strength training, do you have records in your maximum lifts (1RM) in bench press, military development, squats and deadlifts?

    Long past those days Davi. Iíve been at this pretty damn consistently for 50 years & my body shows it. My workouts will vary dependent upon what my body allows & the gear (even in low doses) provides a nice assist at this stage. Expectations are a minimum.

    When I was in my 30ís, my best bench was mid 200ís max. Leg presses worked far better for me than squats and was in the 600ís for reps/sets. Deadlifts never agreed with me (Iím tall with a long torso).

    Again, donít let Sil concern you. He & his castle have a LOT of history and both are still there, where many an enemy are long gone.

    Damn, raining like a mofo, hope it lets up a bit before I head to the gym. Our backyard wildlife (birds and squirrels) are huddled under are large patio roof extension. Going to throw seed & peanuts onto the patio so they can keep eating and still be warm and dry.

    Iíll stick with coffee & eggs.

    I was reading a book by Jim Wendler 531, very good book. He tells you to find out maximum strength before starting the program. Then reduce to 90% with 1 RM basis. The main exercises to increase strength are bench press, military levatamento, barbell squat, and deadlift.


    Week1 : Do 3 sets of 5 reps, Week 2: Do 3 sets of 3 reps, Week 3: Do 1 set of 5 reps, 1 set 3 reps and 1 set (1 rep. The fourth week is a generative week ( tells you to go back for 3 sets of 5 reps.

    And after the fourth week he talks to increase 5lbs in the upper body exercises (straight bench press and military lift, and for the lower body to increase 10lbs barbell squats and deadlifts!

    I'm really enjoying the book, it also talks about including auxiliary exercises like dumbbell rows, pulls etc. bench press with dumbbells etc.

    Oh don't worry, I don't care about Sil's imbecile, I tried to help him, and he's rude to people.


    It's a tremendous water-retaining doll that thinks it's a Viking!

    Did you see him crying like a girl who was going to kill herself? So for an idiot like that you can't take it seriously!

    I know you were being nice to him Davi. I think if you knew the history of the castle, you would be more understanding on why he gets that way. However, he shouldnít call folks names in any case, that wasnít cool.

    This should be required reading! 531 is an excellent program.

    I'm not even calling Sil, his opinion doesn't matter 1 cent to me!


    Well if I can help newer members I will help, I never want to demote or belittle someone for being new to the forum.


    When I joined this forum I didn't know much about AAS, I learned a lot here on the forum..And I'll always be here, because I know that even though I acquire a basic knowledge of AAS, I still don't know everything!

    I read the book and am thinking about putting the program into practice. Did you do the 531?

    I think it can help me break my lifting records.

    Yes I have done and will continue to do 531fairly regularly. It is very effective, though probably seems a little basic to those people that are accustomed to a high volume body building style workout.

    Iíll order it just so I can see what you guys like about it, even though those days are long gone for me. I like my books on early HIT and remember the old Nautilus days (even worked in one of their gyms, lol). HIT Iíll still mix in for arms from time to time (the pain is something to behold & being masochistic helps). Another charge/order to Amazon (I believe they are familiar with my address .)

    Yes, we have feeders & live next to a massive park with a bird sanctuary. Although we donít get anything exotic in our backyard, we have a bird watching book and have had at least 20 different types of birds visit.

    The squirrels will tear up patio furniture and dig up plants, but they are real friendly and like to eat right from your hand.

    Thank you again for visiting and posting here Davi, you are a great guy! The forum is a great place to learn and talk, but occasionally people get nasty unfortunately.

    When people bitch about a problem, get given good advice, and then ignore the advice and continue to complain about the problem I have to assume they want attention more than help with the problem.
