Luckily I have a doctor that is open to natural therapies, he's keeping me off BP meds, statins etc. So I've started a new 'heart' supplement routine and he has me taking the following each day:

Omega 3 (algal sourced): 4,000mg
Magnesium: 1,000mg
D-Ribose: 10g
Vitamin D: 10,000IU

The aim is to reduce the fibrillations and improve the functioning of my heart over the next few months. I'm really optimistic :)

That does sound good , the natural way . Hopefully this will work better rather than those BP meds which you once start taking there is really no looking back .

Thanks Ross, yep everything is good here. Forecast to have the worst snow in 30yrs coming on Thu/Fri so that should be interesting !!

Yeah I'm liking being back in the gym. I trained legs last night and I'm weak as hell which is a bit depressing lol, kinda hard to put any kind of intensity and feel into it when you know that the weights you're pushing are laughable. I could have brought have bought home a Thai ladyboy and done some naked pushups in our bedroom and it would have been a less gay workout than what I did at the gym. I might write it up later.

But I probably won't.

If you think about it, it's actually kind of cool, that in the short amount of time you were away from heavy strength training, your body completely switched its muscular adaptation to deal with the stresses of endurance running. The human body can be a remarkable machine at times. That applies to Thai ladyboys as well, or whatever you're getting yourself into these days. :wink:

Thanks for that, appreciate your comments. Never thought about it that way and that's kinda neat!

Apart from an average training session on Monday night, the weekend was great. Misa loved her 10 pin bowling party, she got a couple of strikes but was a little disappointed that her 4yr old sister ended up beating her :popcorn:

I'll write up my session later when I get into work. Yesterday was a rest day, going to hit some compound upper body tonight.

Thanks captfit, although I think that's an overtstatement. If you see me run I'm about as swift and graceful as a rhino trying to sprint :lol:
