Thanks. I saw it years ago, but hadn't remembered it. I'm obviously not a cult fan. Maybe I should watch it again. Somebody around here must have it.

I like "your father smelt of elderberries" the best.

I still haven't fully gotten used to the idea of Papua New Guinean knights.

My favorite bit is the killer rabbit! My wife has a rabbit, I keep reminding her of what rabbits are capable of!

Owning and Daily Driving a Jeep without Air Conditioning seemed like such a good idea in January.

Now, that idea doesn't seem so good..

hahahahah :)

Almost finished reading "Man-eaters of Kumaon" by Jim Corbett. Great book!

I've actually just finished reading "Arnolds Bodybuilding for Men". It's not a difficult or heavy going read though and didn't take long. Was digging around some stuff that's not been touched in years and found it.

There were some surprising and not so surprising points in it.

(these may not be an exact quote but near enough)

"In the old days, bodybuilders started out training their full body 3 times per week" - So this is something I believe in anyway. This book was published in the early 80's so, the 'old days' are in reference to the old days relative to that time.

"Normal people can't build more than around 10lbs of muscle mass in one year. Gifted athletes may build an extra 15lbs of muscle mass per year".

Was quite surprised at the above statement. Note that the second quote is deffinitly not word for word but the point is - 10-15lbs of muscle mass per year???

Is there anyone else who thinks that small guys (width of shoulders) with muscle look better than wide guys with muscle? (no gay undertone)

Were those last two posts unrelated? She's fine, but I'm not noticing anything notable about her shoulders, other than it's difficult to even look at them when other parts are so distracting.

Alan Aragon and Lyle McDonald have done some very good reviews of the literature and that is a common finding. And there's nothing wrong with gaining 10 pounds of muscle. It is impressive looking and can be substantial performance wise (for sports).

What really drives me up the wall is people gaining a bunch of fat and thinking it is muscle, not measuring fat content, not being scientific about things (but journaling every rep they lift, graphing PRs, etc.)

I hope in your "general trainer" work, you learn to caliper well like Alan Aragon does.

Wide shoulders will look better, just like being taller helps, but if you just don't have the bones for it, that doesn't mean you can't improve what you have. The extra muscle will always help.

That said, I've seen some individuals with huge shoulders and nothing else and it just looks strange.
