I'm hitting it hard this week. One last hard push to lose more of that tummy before next week's vacation in Vegas. Just going to try to manitain on vacation (I do a TON of walking while there). Then, one week of another hard push the week after I get back before the Feast! Here is a pic of me in the new tiny shorts I bought because all my shorts from last year are too big now, along with a shirt I made.

What do you guys do regarding "sick days"? For about 2 weeks now I've felt nauseous (to the point where I almost retch from absolutely nothing) and I'm constantly wondering if I need to make a beeline to the restroom. I skipped my Saturday work out because I was just too nauseous and dizzy (I usually take sun-tues off). Feeling that way, again, though now it is "that time of the month." TMI sorry...I took something for the back ache, but I'm afraid to even get my heart rate up because I think I'll puke.

What would you guys do?

Me?

I'd go to the gym.

I've puked several times training, along with making my nose bleed, busting blood vessels in my eyes, etc

But that's me.

Lookin good.

OMG my exercize instructor worked our azzes off yesterday. I did some work on my own this evening hoping to work some of the soreness out before the second day stiffness hits. It always hits me worst on the second day. But it hurts so good! One more work day then off to Vegas. Then back & one more week of hard work to make the best Camaro mod of all for the fest........................the driver weight loss mod!

I've been trying reverse hyper extension with an exercise ball, seems to be helping. Funny with all the chiro and doctors I've seen, no ones ever suggested this. Thanks!

Good to hear and happy to help.

Not surprising that noone suggested it.

Giving relationship advice while you're at it? Lol

I manged to run 5 miles in 42 minutes tonight. That's something I never saw myself doing a year ago. No matter how much it hurts, you just gotta push through it. It pays off!

This is typical of the medical system. If you asked a sports therapist you might have gotten this response, a doctor would prescribe a pill and a chiropractor well, he's most likely say see a doctor first and the crack you.

I'm sure it is. You just hope that a medical professional will have your best interest in mind.

I'm really happy with the direction I'm headed. The back pain is less and less the better shape I'm getting in. I'm trying to put on some weight, though I'm finding it hard to eat enough. I've shed about all the body fat I had on me, now I'd like to add some more muscle.

As the supporting muscles get stronger there is less stress on the skeletal structure.

Gaining weight in the form of muscle is much more difficult than shedding body fat lol. Typically and naturally you need a minimum of a 500 cal surplus to gain weight (muscle) and for those who train hard it can be much more. Food choices should be caloric dense and high in protein and good quality carbs. Meals should be timed around workouts to provide maximum nutrition for growth, cardio should be limited to short sessions if at all. Training is of great importance, you need a good solid program designed on both strength and hypertrophy and you must stick to it for 5-6 weeks before switching up.

If you are looking to set up a program a few of us could kick in a few ideas that may get you started.

If you are truly wanting to add muscle mass over your entire body you must squat.

But your gains will be not as great if you can't take in enough calories and nutrition.

First though we do need some info as to your current level, do you lift now, have access to a gym or any equipment, for how long and do you have any records that would indicate load parameters for various lifts, if not , it's ok we can figure it out fairly quickly.

The nutrition part is easy but will most likely require supplementation in the form of a good quality weigh protein powder.

I've been doing squats twice a week 4 sets of 10 usually. I'm noticing my legs getting a little bigger, which in all honesty is where I've always lacked.

Yeah cracks me up. That combined with all the woman that say "I don't want to use weights because I don't want to look like a man"...

Ladies wake up...you aren't wired like us and without chemical enhancement you won't look like us...

Increase to sets of 20...

What weight do you use for 4 sets of 10?

I'm lifting Sunday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday. I run at least 3-5 miles Monday, Wednesday and Saturday.

I weight 185 right now, weighed 210 a few months back.
I rep with 185 on bench and squat right now
Haven't been doing any dead lifts for fear of re-aggravating my back.
I lift at home or at the Y.
