What you've been doing is pretty imbalanced. The suggestions here have tons of upper body work. If you do those lifts there is no reason to do additional upper body work. If you do them intensively enough, there will be no room in your life for additional upper body work.

Yeah. So the real test is, "are you losing?" If you are averaging a pound a week of weight loss, it's a good diet for you. If not, make changes either in your exercise or in your diet.

Well, I'll probably argue with you from time to time. I can tell that you won't be shy about arguing back! You and everyone on this forum have been a great resource for me. This morning I reached a personal milepost. I weighed in at 188#, which is 40# off my personal high of 228# last August. Most o...

Not "pure carbs". The "40.37" is grams of carb in a 177 gram portion (1 cup). That's 23% carb. And of that 11% is fiber! That leaves less than 30% available carbs, and low GI at that. Also gives you 15 grams of protein. The "13.46%" is percent of the DV, and arbitrary value that only applies to that...

Lunch Chili with some veggies (corn, peas, green beans, kidney beans) Don't eat corn and beans, they have very high carb profile, skip the chili, none of that food is any good as diet food. Really, Maiden? Chili--kidney beans and navy beens are relatively low GI/GL. Add lean beef and tomatoes and s...

Do you have someone to spot for you? Especially on the bench press it is important to have a spotter. Go to YouTube and search on "weight lifting accidents" and you'll see some pretty scary bench presses gone bad. Does the knee hurt when it pops? Does it do it every rep? Does it happen if you squat ...

Wednesday, 21 May 6 hr sleep 188# Haven't lifted in a week--on call on the weekend, and on Monday I was recovering physically and emotionally from a very difficult weekend. I ate pretty well through the time, though. Judy and Sam are away for a holiday (without me!!!) so I'm on my own for diet. Did ...

Well, here it goes. We leave the ego at the door, right? So I'm going public with my weights, habits, mistakes.

I'll start a thread at http://exrx.net/forum/viewtopic.php?p=22681#22681 for your comments.

Andy's Journal Comments

Please feel free to comment on any thoughts you might have about my workout. A little introduction first. I'm 55 years old, 5'11" and 188 lb., as of this AM. That's down from 228 lb. in September. My goal is to weigh 175. My reason for training is to lose fat, and gain strength. If I look better, th...

I will answer a lot like Peter answered your last questions. You are doing squats, the "King of Exercises," and deadlifts. You do not need to be doing hamstring, calf and traps isolation exercises or shrugs. The big lifts will take care of all those areas. Lots and lots of intermediate and advanced ...

Great job, and very helpful. Two thoughts: 1. It has been my experience that people who lose weight the fastest seem to put it back on the fastest. I have a vague recollection of reading some research support for that, but it was a long time ago. Most people who have lost wt. with Adkins (or lots of...

Well, not all of us aren't doctors! :) First, localize the pain a little better. You say "outer elbow" so I'm assuming the lateral side, the side that faces out when you arm hangs down and the palm of the hand faces forward. I'm guessing I can tell you just where the pain is, but you tell me if I'm ...

You figure it out as you go along. Try something. If it's very easy, add more weight. If it's still easy add more.

There are several routines in the stickies in this forum that give you good guidance how to get started.

You said something about the sled tipping over. How about running the chain between the tires?
