    You don't have to be Mr Olympia to think logically and know your shit, though.

    Formerly from Cucaramacatacatirimilcote...
    Given that my ability to exercise and to hold handlebars declined at the same time as my ability to play, that could well be true. *laugh*

    Fortunately, I'm now back in the saddle, riding a bike for at least an hour a day, and slowly bringing up my free weight usage as my hand strength comes back. I'm also a huge fan of my old Bullworker, and of using a conference room at work when it's not occupied, in order to use either my bodyweight or the various bits of furniture as either weights or supports.

    Anyway, I currently consider myself to be hugely pudgy. Normally I have an average-looking build in clothes, since I'm small-boned and 5' 10", but the fact that I outweigh some of the larger 6-foot-plus heavyset guys at work just demonstrates how dense I can be... which is probably evident from my posts here.

    *laugh*

    Is this some sort of jedi mind trick aimed at manipulating us to do oiled flexed and shaven poses for your own form of sick entertainment? :fawk:lol

    Well, I won't go quite that far, but I will pledge some training photos (we all look bigger with weight in hand lol) ASAP.
    My lady will have to take them and will probably think I'm pulling an Anthony Weiner and sending/emailing them to some hot chick :lol:.
