Yes but few and far between. I often out them before they are done and They taste grosser and grosser the fitter I get. I go much much longer between cigs and I can easily resist them. Guess I could cold turkey but at this rate Ill have quit before a month is past.
Glad to read your getting into shape, Krosigrim. But I must ask, are you still smoking ciggs as well?
Ill post in this though I read your thread Alpha.
The past week Ive been conditioning & toning. I started off earlier but hurt my bum shoulder doing dips at work... the 3rd set too. As I chilled out for a few days I began looking at a path to my goals. I was at fitness level 0 and there is sooo much I want to do. Ive been out of shape for 16 years last time I was 17. Im 6'3" and weighed about 222 about 8 days ago. on top of having soft muscles are soft ligaments and joints. Cartilage that isnt used to having loads on them. I have a shoulder injury, one of my muscles seems to not operate, which others have now built to compensate, I can do pushups painlessly now. I also tore ligaments in my ankle and by ankles were weak. So as to not hurt myself I took small and frequent workout breaks. Yea break from what I may be doing & work something. leg lifts, fast high knees, doing circles with my arms or ankles.
After a few days I really got into it. Found a brick out back and began pressing it above my head with one arm 10 times, then the other arm, then back and forth till I got tired then switched it up.
Very explosive uppercuts in full form, tight boxer stance with full hip and leg action (my absolute favorite)
Dont know what there called but leaned forward & brought them up and out with my back
Holding the brick at shoulder level straight to the right for a moment, keeping the brick at that level with arms fully extended (slight bend as not to lock joint) I bring it in front of me and switch hands, bring the brick fully to my left, wait a moment rinse and repeat.
When I felt strained (cardio) Id cool down by throwing the brick up and catching it with the other hand. Not up up but make it kinda float there in front of me. Id put a light spin on the brick so both hands always grip the same side of the it. This way I can condition while staying flexible and nimble enough... strengthening my stabilizers and fine movement muscles instead of focusing on strength like most do.
Spoke with Emsley and light weight workout is old news to him. My shoulders are getting beefy already and thats just from small steps!!!
I ran on the beach (dry sand) or should I say jogg/walk/jogg/walk/etc
jogged up 300 steps or more yesterday. walked around the lake and did cheating pushups on every bench, at least 15 but max 30 each... so thats over 200. By cheating I mean leaning forward at a 45 degree or so.
Jumping pullups, where you slowly let yourself down, that way you work the muscles if you CANT do a pullup... so yea, I can do pullups now yaaaay
Much more but I actually gotta leave right now and workout.
But Im getting FIT!
