I do lunges. In the first few weeks I started, by the time I got towards the end I was practically in tears. A couple of times I failed. and that's just with a five kilo weight! :P


keep up the great work robert, you are a true inspiration! :D

Yeah, I can't do squats. It's a serious injury when I do. Sometimes I can't even walk or sit properly, other times it's not that bad, but still very serious and very limiting.

So I just won't do them. But my quads and other parts of my legs are still one of my best muscle groups. So I think it's fine. I am really enjoying lunges too!

Ok, gotta go. Thanks for the comments. I should be training at my boss's house tomorrow in Canada. He has a sweet home gym.

I'm finding all kinds of new things at Vega :) I visited the office for the first time today. I'm staying at the owner's house and training at his gym. I forced him to take photos of me last night while I was flexing and posing :) :)

Who calls the shots now :?: :?: :?: :?: :?: :idea: :idea: :P

I'll do some back and shoulders later on tonight.

I took a couple of days off because I was working 12 and 14-hour days at the Taste of Health Festival in Canada. The event was great! I spoke on Saturday and on Sunday, both were good presentations. I also worked the Vega booth all day each day and had to do lots of other preparation work, etc.

I'll hit the gym again tomorrow. I can barely keep my eyes open. I must have mingled with more than 2,000 people this weekend. Or somewhere close to that number. Maybe a few of them will show up on the forum in the next few days.

Ok, time to sleep I think.

There were 3 I was interested in, and I got to chat with all of them :) It's fun being a speaker or presenter, especially coming from a different country (no matter how close it is) ;)

But you know me, no girlfriends. It's kinda my thing. I fly solo; always.

Oh, you know me Potter. I look for myself first :) But we'll help each other out....and we'll do a better job than we did in D.C.!!!

I just arrived in Baltimore. It was an adventure to get here....delayed flights, standby, etc. It took me a full 24 hours! I missed the entire first day of the show :(

I'm not sure I'll be able to train here but when I get back on Sunday night I'll hit it then, or Monday before returning home.
