I've been on and off since I last posted. Nothing really consistent, then I went to Canada for 2 weeks and came back out of shape. Luckily I was eating a ton, so I've been working hard to transform it to muscle.

I don't know what my weight was when I last posted, but I'm at 170 as of 2 hours ago (after taking a dump).

Arms and chest are getting defined, they're also starting to grow a bit more.

Gonna have to do squats and calve raises.

I'm the complete opposite of most of you guys on here. I have large forearms, and strong wrists, but the shitty end of that is my arms (in my opinion at least) have never looked big.

I've got to say, having strong wrists is a big advantage in the weight room. I see a lot of people when benching letting the bar sit on their palms when they get to a heavyish weight for them (I dunno, I guess 185lbs + for most people). I'm lucky enough to have strong wrists and therefore comfortable in keeping all the weight behind my wrist, even on heavy sets of 275lbs+ and not having to put all the stress on the wrist when being bent and having the bar sit on your palm.
I think if you do have that problem, its good to drop the weight and get comfortable with it behind your wrist. Its going to save your wrists, and you'll be able to push more weight once you get back to your heavier weights with these new habits.

Anyone know a good calf workout for mass besides donkey calf raises. I lack the resources available to do that particular exercise.

That is exactly what my problem was. I had to reduce weight and train myself how to hold the bar properly so that the force was going directly through the wrist and into the forearm.

Great video, this is a Arnold classic as well

Forgot to add my wrist also hurts when I do Barbell rows. Started doing them over-hand (instead of under-hand) to relieve the pain.

Great vid man! I love that era of body building. To me those guys had the ideal bodies. Not like the freaks today.

Great advice Plow. This is what anyone should do who is having wrist problems.

Grip is definitely a limiting factor for a lot of us. Definitely not always good for the ego.

My wrists have never held me back on bench, I've been able to bench 150# dumbbells per hand for reps, it was the weighted dips that more than likely strained it. This is the first time I can think of that one of my wrists have hurt, which isn't too bad though since I'm cutting now and don't necessarily need to lift as heavy. It's more of annoyance than anything else.

Progress pic from this morning.



I lost more muscle than I wanted to but it's very difficult to stay big while running and swimming every day.

Edit resize that pic was huge

Try replacing all your beverages with water. People don't realize how much calories are in soda and juices.

edit. Especially beer.

I'll be doing a P90X workout called Yoga X today. I hate it because it's 1 hr & 30 minutes long, but I know yoga is an essential part of exercising if one plans to prevent injuries.
