Exercises / Re: Goblet squat

Goblet squats are wonderful exercises! It is easy to modify a stance (regular vs sumo/wide) and is excellent for developing core strength!
Plus it encourages you to keep your knees in line with/behind your toes which is beneficial for anyone with knee problems (which you have discovered)
Plus Plus - it is much easier to get a full ROM this way

I second this. I too have had both knees repaired and I like them. I also use the Frank Zane Leg blaster also. Good for taking stress off of the knees.

Dude, go to a doctor and see if you can get that repaired!! That is not good!! I had a fully torn rotator cuff repaired almost 2 years ago and it took me a little while to get back up to snuff. Even now I am taking it a little easy, but go see a doctor!!

I know this is more egg -- but I like to make big quiches with veggies and ground beef. Sometimes we'll add uncured bacon. They usually last us all week, and I supplement with fruit.

Smoothies are usually pretty fast and satisfying (water, banana, kale, frozen strawberries or other fruit, ground flaxseed).

How do you make your quiche without a crust? What do you use instead?

I have hurt my back in the past doing deadlift's. I now do them with a trap bar. No back problems anymore and I do not scrape my knees. It keeps my form strict as well.


WOW! That was informative. Where is Mt. Data?

Why is it that something so simple can be turned into something bad by our "Medical System"? I am a T2 diabetic. My morning levels were between 200 and 230. I knew it was my diet. I stopped ALL sugar, soda's, rice, potatoes and bread (mostly). Now I wake up and my levels are around 110 more or less. Almost cut in half!! Once I get moving around during the day it drops into the 80's or 70's. Once I did a measurement it read 32!! Scared me so bad I took it again and it said the same thing. Once you learn to control it you will see how easy it really is. I love to cook and this gives me more of a reason to keep that grill going!!!!!

I have been working primarily from home in the past few months and I'm single. This setting allowed me to schedule meals as I wanted and not at predefined times, and eating primarily at home.

Going paleo I found that:

- By eating when I was hungry I did not follow my previous meal schedules. Some days I would go from waking up till 3-4pm with just some herbal tea. I would then have late lunch (at 4pm), and then dinner around 8pm. Sometimes I would fast until 6-7pm, have "1st dinner" then and have "2nd dinner" at around 11pm.
- Other days I would have breakfast at 8 and lunch at 11, several snacks in the afternoon and a late dinner (around 10pm).
- Overall, by eating when I felt hungry I found out that I did not need a much food on average, but when I was particularly hungry I could eat a lot. I also found that, because they require no preparation, I tended to eat more fruit and nuts than advisable. I managed that by planning to run out of them before going back for groceries.

So another thing to expect from going paleo is that you won't feel constantly hungry.

This is what I have found out also. Some days I only need to eat once! That is crazy for me! I used to eat 3 to 4 times a day of the wrong foods. Since I have changed 3 months ago, I have lost weight and have toned up pretty well!

OLAD! One Lift A Day! I have been doing tis for around 7 month's now and it works great for me. Just make sure you split it up by working upper body one day and lower body another day. It is becoming popular with alot of body building site's I have been to. Give it a try for a few month's.

Wow, I am late to this party but just came across this thread. I am not sure if anyone is familiar with OLAD ( One Lift A Day ), but that is how I do my exercise routine. I have been doing this for over a year or so. It allows me to concentrate better on my lifts. I hurt my shoulder about a month and a half ago, so no upper body since then. I am getting better now so I will be getting back into upper body within a week or two. I love the routine and will stick with it for some time to come.
