Thanks for the advice. I'm currently incarcerated in Salem, Oregon, but I'm from the Tri-Cities, Washington originally. I have a couple of the guy's cards back on unit, but I don't remember the guy's name off the top of my head. I know the scout also works as a hispanic laiison for some school near ...

The weight training will get more difficult just because you're losing weight as well. I went through the same thing when I started doing cardio heavy to lose bodyfat too. The more weight you lost, and the faster you lose it, the more strength you'll lose as well, making it more difficult to lift he...

MMA

There have been several people who have come through here, some whom do MMA themselves and one guy who was a sort of scout for a professional MMA coach who told me that I should do MMA competition. They based this off of watching me workout and in the case of the scout shadowboxing on a ball that wa...

I agree with the idea of dynamically stretching pre-workout, but I definately believe that one should warm up first. You can actually increase the potential for injury by stretching before you're warmed up.

Thanks, and thanks for welcoming me. Yeah, I know it's been a little sporadic, such is life here. There are always complications. As far as the kid goes, I only have about 45 minutes with him, and I train another 15 guys with him and his partner during that time. Right now I've been doing a lot of w...

Training a Football Player

Ok, So I have this freshman-aged kid that wants to play Highschool ball. He hasn't done any lifting in the past, but he asked me what I could do for him to prepare him for football. I set him on a bunch of compound exercises, doing circuiting with powerlifting and lots of twisting core exercises for...

new pushups...

I've kind of been playing around with different ways to do pushups, and I was wondering if you guys thought that there may be some potential injuries in them?...This old man I know said that I should ask somebody who would be well informed on something like this, so I figured I'd bounce it off of y'...

We've got a lot of good machines here, and what I've been doing is similar to what you guys have told me. I usually incorporate the weights and the bodyweight exercises, though, as opposed to one or the other. For instance, on a shoulder day, I'll have them start with handstand pushups, move into an...

training high schoolers in a short time

I wrote a little before about some advice training a few of the guys I work with, but I now take on about 25 guys in an hour and a half session, two separate groups. I'm teaching them the fundamentals, some easy workouts that will help to build the maximum amount in the beginning, but I only have ab...

I heard something recently about soy protein developing breasts in men?...I don't use supplements, but only because access to them is limited in my particular prison. When I'm out, however, it would be good to be educated. Just curious if anyone knew anything about it.

I dig Alice in Chains, Metallica, Godsmack, Disturbed, etc. when I'm lifting. A lot of people around me like to listen to that pop hip hop crap when they're lifting, and I don't understand why. I could see gangster rap when lifting, but stuff like Pretty Ricky?...Hmm...

measure 11

Hey, are any of you familiar with a measure in Oregon called Measure 11? It has to do with criminal sentencing laws. It's been a while since I've posted anything on this site because I wasn't able to get to a computer. Some of you have talked to me already, and I'm not sure if you have, you even rem...

I didn't read everything in here so I don't know if I'm repeating what somebody else has already said, but it looks to me like you are way too high in sugars. The carbs break down into sugars, and all the fruit you are eating is high sugar content. I lost a solid 30lbs of bodyfat in a couple of mont...

Kenny- You seemed determined to make an argument out of this when one isn't even necessary. Your results are not going to jump 4% +/-, but they are saying that your actual numbers could vary, although it will give you a general number. If you are going to gauge your progress, and you follow the dire...

Counteracting Surgery

Ok, so here's the deal. When I got arrested, I also got shot a bunch of times. They did some surgery on me, which left me with what they call a "zipper" a scar which is about 8-10 inches long down the middle of my stomach. They split the muscles to get into my internal organs, laid all the good stuf...
