Cool man! I gotta start doing wrist curls again too. I was just thinking about that recently.

You've got some good weights there for back exercises. What is the stuff you were doing in the sauna? Grip work? I sometimes do ab work in the steamroom or sauna and some stretching, and I also try to just relax a bit (if people around me aren't chatting about annoying stuff).

Anyway, good journal. All the best!

Are you anywhere near L.A.?

I'll be there this weekend.

Thanks Robert!I live close to San Jose.
The exercise I do in the steam room can better be explained here;

Don't forget to read the Benifits For Men section. LOL
Thanks again for the kudos. I am getting ready to post some frontal photos. I will have to change my routine from a push/pull weight training regime, to get all the muscle firing on one day.

1. I have been taking Soy, Hemp, Rice and know Gemma protein for about 2 months

2. I have been taking Creatine since May 1st. I did not do the loading portion. But I don't work out every day so I think this will allow build up in the muscles as I take it every morning with some protein powder, rice milk and some chocolate powder mix, which has sweetener in it, for the transport thingy. It doen't agree with me though as I get burping fits in the morning when I take it along with an upset stomach. Like when I drink a large glass of apple juice. (it must be the pectin in the apples?) otherwise I have a caste iron stomach and can eat aspirins 6 at a time 4 hour apart for days and have no side or stomach problems. I also noticed some acne (zit) coming out several at once. I will see what happens and How I feel but will probably do only one cycle as the jar contains little more than a months worth.

3. I have changed up my workout and done some supersets, and will work on arms and shoulders next. But will rethink even this change as on normal days it hard to use two machines at once. As soon as you leave one someone seems to know what you are doing and will come all the way across the gym to use one of the machines you are trying to superset with. I don't fault them. But it makes for instantaneous changing which can ruin the flow so to speak.

Worked on daughters car.
That's probably why she made the vegan muffins.
No time for gym.
Hope for tomorrow after I finish her car.
