Just saw this thread Jim. Think thatís a great decision, mainly the body weight. I know Iím a skinny fuk, but I have thought about this long and hard the last little bit and decided if I canít see my abs, Iím too fat lol. Itís all about my future health.
As for the training, I dunno, do what you enjoy. I legit like doing the bodybuilding higher rep stuff a lot more than I thought I would.
You know as well as me, diet will control what your body comp will look like. If you love to powerlift, powerlift!

Thanks Shawn.

We're really enjoying our new gym and we're both re-committed to getting leaner and not worrying as much about strength.

But......IMA still try to be strong.  :D

It really is a well run gym chain. Always staff around vacuuming, cleaning, clean change rooms and great variety of equipment. Our Movati has a nice pool as well that I have brought the boys too quite a few times.
I am the same, always have that wanna be strong mentally. Hit the heavy compound first to get your strength fix, than blast the isolations for dat pump!

So when does the bodybuilding training start? If you just do heavy low rep compounds you're just gonna be a smaller weaker version of yourself. Gotta hit them 8-12 rep sets, train biceps, calves etc...

You know what you gotta do Bro.

ION you're changes are rubbing off on me, left beer in the fridge and hit the sack early last night. Best I've felt on a Saturday morning in awhile.

I had like 8 or 9 beers last night and was in bed by 11.

8 or 9 beers used to be a typical weeknight.  LOL.

Mon-Thu I had zero beers.

I remember trying to get ID to help me with diet, he looked at my intake and was like "Dude I can't do anything for you, you're getting 70% of your calories from beer." :eek:

That said, happy Saturday night :beerchug:

This Province/Country is fucked.

Minimum wage is $14/hr and a case of beer is $50 for the absolute cheapest shit you can get.

That just ain't right.

After taxes anyone working for min wage needs to spend almost an entire day's pay to buy a fukken case of beer?
