  1. I am about 3 months in and I have gotten the best results in a long time. But I think I am starting to plateau so I am mixing it up with different excersizes and more excersizes. So I am still making progress just not as much as I did the first month or two.
  2. yeah rows are the best. Everyone should do them. especially the bent over barbell rolls. those will tear you up.
  3. haha, Thats awesome you listen to Tears of Gaia and This Time Tomorrow. I played in both of those bands. This Time Tomorrow was from Seattle and we werent a Sxe band but we were mostly Sxe except one member. And I played in Tears of Gaia right before they broke up. I play in a new vegan sxe band called Parasitic Skies. We are darker and more metal if thats your thing.
  4. Always looking to meet or find new work out partners. I like working out with others cause it pushes me alot more. But Im also just curious to see if anyone else posts from here.
  5. hahaha. billy you are funny. How come you never worked out with me when you lived in seattle? How much you weigh now? I am lucky I only have 5 chest hairs. And they dont really bother me. haha.
  6. So 3 weeks into the workout and I am making gains every week. So far so good. And I am noticing it in my body as far as look and feel. I am pretty stoked. You just go until failure or one set. You do the highest possible weight you can do 6-10 reps of. Part of the system is based on getting maximum tear(which is why you dont stretch) and maximum rest(only lift twice a week). I will give another update when I get 2 months in.
  7. I just recently started it just to try something different. And it makes sense in some ways. But I am still curious to see if it really works for most people. For those that dont know its only working out twice a week and only doing compound excersizes like deadlifts, squats and bench. with a couple others. But the main thing is you only do one set of reps until failure. So you have to have one really intense set no warming up. anyone try it?
  8. http://www.myspace.com/xparasiticskiesx We just put up two songs from our new record. Heavier and much more gym appropriate. Also if you have facebook you can add us there. http://en-gb.facebook.com/pages/Parasitic-Skies/351375611177
  9. thanks for the positive feedback. We are gonna record a full length this winter or spring and it will be even heavier. The gym is a musical influence. haha.
  10. Not really. But starting over after thinking I was making such good gains was frustrating. I used it alot cause i would always work alone and would want to push myself without fearing for my life. Until a friend told me a while ago that i should stop it asap. And so I did and then I went down 50 pounds on bench. 235 to 185. and now going up in weight is way harder. I am have accepted it now. and I deserve it for not knowing better.
  11. yeah those are my toes. I got that tattoo on a whim one day.
  12. you should be able to download it. but I think they are rar files which means you need to download winrar(which you can download for free online) and convert them to mp3s.
  13. I think their new album is the best thing they have released sense Gomorrahs. Its one of my favorite records this year by far.
  14. noticed that there are couple fans in here. I play in a vegan sxe hardcore band called Parasitic Skies. You might dig it. Its good gym music. Ha. http://www.myspace.com/xparasiticskiesx
  15. have you gone vegan yet? Where do you work out?
  16. I have been vegan for about 8 years and been lifting casually for about that long. But I am starting to get more serious. I am 5'10" and 180 lbs. Currently I bench 4x10 at 225 lbs. I have also been training wing chun coming up on two years. anyone else form the Seattle area?
