that looks good ... added to wish list..
Finished reading Body Science tonight.

Next step is to reread it much more slowly in a studying fashion with an eye for implementation.

How much do you do of what the book proscribes?

Re: What Does Life Look Like For You Now?

I am the proverbial "hard gainer"and the classic ectomorph. I plateaued years and years ago on the exercises that I do. Adding 5 pounds to any of them is a MAJOR accomplishment. However, since I'm in the age group of more rapid phase of losing muscle mass potential just staying at a plateau should ...

Re: What Does Life Look Like For You Now?

With all this weight lifting talk, just curious: Who here has lost or gained more than 3 pounds? I consider 2 lbs to be insignificant due to salt intake variation and whether or not a recent poop has taken place, March 17th was the last day I've been off my property. Do my daily weights and fluctua...

Re: What Does Life Look Like For You Now?

Doesn't [muscular atrophy] happen within days and, certainly within a week? Like you I'm doing it three times a week with half rack and Olympic weights (albert in my living room!). No, I really don't think a week away from weights is long enough to cause muscular atrophy. In fact, several times whe...

Re: What Does Life Look Like For You Now?

Actually we get a fair amount thanks to skylights. But we don't have a yard to speak of. Of course taking this somewhat on a tangent.....but for people who love their skylights how does that affect their decision to "go solar"? I assume if it covers those skylights then they don't produce like they...

Re: What Does Life Look Like For You Now?

It seems that free weights are actually a cardiovascular form of exercise in that that they also strengthen the heart. I believe I read this in Rippitoe's book. Vinny I'm a huge fan of Mark Rippetoe and have read his books and been to his seminars and bought his equipment, but... I think he's stret...

Re: Finally antibody testing is available relatively nearby!

Has anybody here taken a SARS-CoV-2 antibody test yet? I took one a couple of weeks ago (super-accurate one recently developed by a local biotech startup). Result was negative. So apparently the brief fever and head cold I got back in early Feb when I traveled to Germany for work wasn't the Wuhan. ...
