[quote=Justin McGinley;456054]I think work like that counts as "active rest."

I thought about doing a Starting Strength cycle, but I've decided instead to just add a little bit extra strength work into my workouts(which sometimes messes up my programming when I try to follow the mainsite WOD, but I want more strength, so that is a "sacrifice" I am willing to deal with :D ) What goals do you have that make you want to try SS?[/quote]

Hey Justin!

I can relate to the "active rest" concept, though as badly as Angie kicked my hind end a week or two ago, I have NEVER been so sore recently as I was after playing on the roof and in those gutters. SHEESH!! I guess a lot of it was the static holds my body was in - - especially the quads, when I was facing down the pitch.

Yup, I too try to follow the main page WODs - - keeps my ADHD brain interested and tends to do a good job of mixing metcon or CFE with strength work. I do my own thing when the main page is clearly above my capabilities (WAY BEYOND...) or when I need to adjust for my maladies.

I'll be doing SS for two reasons. First, though I been lifting on and off pretty much since I got out of high school (about 40 years), I've developed a lot of bad habits, or never learned the lifts I've been doing the correct way. Got some pretty good poundages too, but luckily, never injured myself. As it is, I should be messed up from all the "bad" lifting I've done.

Second, I'd like to really develop some functional strength above what I'm gaining through CF. But, I can't do CF properly without having correct form under my belt for the oly lifts. My DLs and Bench forms are OK, but could be better. My best bench (from about 15+ years ago) is only 235 X 2 (I weighed about 210 back then - - still overweight). According to SS, if I improve my form just a bit (keep the lumber curve instead of forcing the whole of my back onto the bench) and learn to keep my core tight, I will greatly increase muscular efficiency and with some time and training, should be able to blow the old numbers away....Same with the DLs. I believe I've got a 300 + DL in me, and I'd like to shoot for a 2X BW DL down the road.

Sorry for the long-winded response, but you got me going (yes, I'm still stoked)!

Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours!

Hi Nancy!

Yup........I[I][B] LOVE[/B][/I] to cook! I've had a lot of fun experimenting with different meals. Stumbled on to a new favorite of mine (Chicken or Steak and broccoli stir-fry) that I try to have once a week or so. Cheryll likes it too, so that's a plus. Chery's a great cook too, as is our daughter, so we all struggle with leading a "hand to mouth existence!"

It's all the [I][B]bad things[/B][/I] I like to make that are the problem. You mentioned pasta - - I make a mean spaghetti sauce which I love to smother angel hair pasta with. I'll still make small quantities of the sauce, make two servings for supper and freeze the rest. I'll probably carb load a little before doing a CFE type WO like a [I][B]L O N G [/B][/I]rowing session. I want to do a 10K or perhaps a 20K row sometime soon.

I've knocked off the breads, sugars, and artificial sweeteners. I use raw sugar or sometimes, saccharin in my coffee, but that's about it. Scared to death about the long-term effects of sucralose (Splenda) which has 6 free chlorine atoms in its molecule........unfortunately, chlorine binds with just about anything......Aspartame makes my rummy, so I quit using it.

Best to you and yours for a wonderful Thanksgiving!

Put it over spaghetti squash. It's better than you'd think it would be. I too make a mean sauce. It's a family recipe, and it is GOOD.

Steve, you're posting your food! NICE! It helps so much... I have a few months of what I ate in my log off and on.

Can't wait for the elite comeback. :D

Hi Steve.

Dropped by for a visit. I love your rest week idea, and can't wait to see the comeback!

I also love that you are posting your food. Maybe I will do that, too. I used to use an on-line service for that, but I did it only sporadically and they charged $9/month, so I canceled it. Maybe if I post it in my log it will help hold me accountable!

I hope you got some great deals on Black Friday. I look forward to hearing about your return!

Hi Lee Ann,

Thanks for stopping by....Had a lot of fun shopping with wife and daughter! Got a great set of running flats; now all I have to do is have a knee which will cooperate so I can run......:D Posting of food has really helped! I hope I haven't lost any ground......kinda scared to start back up tomorrow.....

Have a great day!

[quote=Delita Wright;459126]Hi, Steve! How's that comeback coming? Looks like you got a plan! Delita[/quote]

Hey Delita!

What goes, Girl? Starting with the "comeback" tomorrow. Had to make a mad dash to Redding yesterday and back home today (about 5.5 hours each way pulling a trailer) to get some furniture from storage up there. The plan has been great - - kept me grounded, albeit a bit frustrated because though the eating is really working well, my mind is willing but my body is being recalcitrant (pulled hamstrings - - BOTH of them a week apart, a complaining right shoulder, and my continuing to complain right knee.........).

I've got a special on a used "Steve Bod".....any takers out there - - perhaps I can get a trade in....:rofl:

Take care - - good to have you back!

Great job on the pull-ups & Sit-ups! For the squats does that "G" stand for "Azz to [B][I]G[/I][/B]round"? If so, those are awesome too! Especially with your hamstring issues!

Happy Birthday. Killer workout. You should be proud![/quote]

Thanks, my friend. Felt so [I][B]GOOD[/B][/I] to (properly) get 65# overhead with something besides a shoulder press. I've heard that gives some such a rush......it's true!!

[U][B]Thursday, 12/04/08:

[/B][/U][B][I]REST DAY. Needed it to recover from the WOD and mis-guided eating.

Doctor Visit for R/knee today.
[/I][/B][I]Got nothing but the best news about my knee today. New X-rays should no abnormalities, just some adhesions and scar tissue. The cartilage in the knee joint also looked good, so any degeneration which may have been visible in the joint was/is apparently not a factor. I need to continue doing strengthening exercises for the right leg - - the left has somewhat overcompensated.

The Dr. is very happy with my exercise routine (CF), [B]including the squats!!![/B] It is recommended, not for the sake of the joint, per-se, but for the safety of the cartilage in the knee, that I not squat ATG any more. Full-depth squats (done per Coach Rip's Rx) according to the Dr. put undue stress on the [B]cartilage[/B][/I], [I]not the knee itself. Squats to 90 deg. or even Dynamax depth do not hurt the cartilage. This is the first time I've heard a Dr. say anything positive about wide-stance, deep (Dynamax depth) squats. But then again, she also has a degree in athletic science/training.[/I]

[I]Woo Hoo!!!! Made my day![/I]

[I][B]Nutrition:[/B][/I]

[B][I]Breakfast:[/I][/B]
[I]1 slice veggie quiche (egg, mushroom, spinach, scallions) - approx. 6 Oz
16 Oz coffee w/ creamer, raw sugar

[B]Lunch:
[/B]2 slices cold, left-over pizza.

[B]Dinner:[/B] B-Day dinner left-overs
1/2 of a 1/2 pound, lean beef burger
Garlic french fries

[B]Snack:
[/B]1/3 Snickers bar.

[B]Water:
[/B]Approx. 60 Oz.


Tomorrow is gonna SUCK!
