Crystal lite ice licks are fucking AWESOME. 

Looking at my food stats for today. Feels good man, been feeling great all week (except yesterday) :D

(Btw on the net calories per day one of the bars is way low because it subtracts the calories burned during your workout from what you’ve eaten, so I ate as usual but burned a lot I guess)




Left: 2009, 108 lbs. Right: Today, 130 lbs. I think the fact that I don’t look much bigger with 22 extra pounds is a testament to the value of muscle mass.

Truly fantastic.

Just more proof that the scale shouldn’t be your only means of tracking progress!

Organic as FUCK

How do you know someone is vegan? Don’t worry, they’ll tell you :)

Beautiful film of Bokator (Cambodian Martial art) fighters

Amazing film, really makes me miss doing martial arts

Hey anybody who’s interested, Google labs has cooked up something awesome yet again: Bodylab!

You can view muscles, the nervous system, major organs, and other cool stuff. I don’t know what it could be used for, other than maybe learning body parts and bones in a biology/med class, but could be interesting powerlifting or bodybuilding wise and sharing tips and tricks. For example, I just highlighted the obliques on the female figure: you can “pin,” “highlight,” and link the body part. Here’s to hoping this link works: http://goo.gl/NXyY6

There’s also a list of the major stuff in all the groups (bones, nerves, muscles, etc), and you can share it on your Twitter and Google Buzz (which is pretty much dead to me, but idk about other people). 

Anyways, I’ve talked enough, have fun with the Bodylab and figure out a use for it I can’t think of right now.

P.S. Didn’t go to the gym today, but will bring the pain tomorrow. As much as is appropriate and my body can handle, that is. Safety and health first!

An acquaintance of mine noticed her periods got lighter/went away when she did strength training, and I noticed the same for me. Does anyone else experience this, or is powerlifting a cause of lighter/no periods, and if it is, why?


The girls who smile and giggle and look “cute” at the gym…get the fuck outta my way.
