Re: RPR's workout log


i like your workout, bob. that's a good combo you are doing there. it's a shame that you have to delete things in the possibility that some low life may be trying to steal the techniques and claim them as their own. that's a good christian right there, now isn't it? i can't wait to start back with bodyweight. did you ever try the old blair's protein? jim lavin used it. i was curious if you did, too. i am trying to replicate it from what i have seen it contained. will let you all know the outcome in like a month when i start using it.

Re: RPR's workout log


yes. slow and steady. i did not kill myself last night my first workout in 3 weeks. like bob, i also would not use the suction cup handles for pull ups from the ceiling, especially at over 200 pounds. if you want to do pull ups, get a doorway pull up system or hang a handle between two chairs and do them like that. it's much more steadier.

that's my experience too. do any of you use them pushup handles with suction cups on them that enables one to stick them to the ceiling to use as pullup handles? one would would have to weigh very little in order to use them on my ceiling. i weigh over 200 - there's no way i'd use them on the ceiling.

After a month of DT only I tried my chest expander on Saturday and was able to do what I was doing the last time I used them. over a month ago. So nothing has been lost doing DT only.

DT at it's best. Of course, it is no comparison to dvr's and dsr's(JP), lol!

Re: RPR's workout log


Last week I discovered a bump over my stomach when I did some leg lifts. My guess is it's a hernia since it only shows up under stress. So, until I see my doctor next week no ab work, including push ups and squats that engage the core.

I'm only doing the SRs and Atlas back rows. I can do a SR leg extension and leg curl instead of squats. I can also do isolation exercises with my chest expander. But everything, for now, is lower resistance and higher reps. I don't need to strain against high resistance.

I believe I got the hernia in early April when my father was down with a virus and I had to move him around a lot, including lifting him. The weak spot in the abdominal wall was always there, it just took a lot of stress to cause the break down. I'm pretty sure I'll be seeing a surgeon soon. The good news is that even hernia operations now are laprodosic, so no huge surgical scar, and you heal up faster.

bob, you will bounce back from this. it is the "keep on trying" aspect that is important, AND YOU HAVE THAT!

I've been able to do the DT workouts, without push ups and squats, and not aggravate the hernia. I'll get some walking back in.

Re: RPR's workout log


I saw a surgeon today and my hernia isn't a hernia. It's a diastasis rectii. Basically as we get older the connective tissue in our ab muscles thins, so when you put pressure on the area you get the bulge. So that was good news. I have no restrictions, so I'm good to go with push ups, etc.

in layman's terms, it's just a pain in the gut, right?
