Re: Seeahill: once more into the fray

As for "workouts," well, the good news is that even at 76, you can feel your body get stronger. I'm doing DDP "Yoga," which is really an amalgam of strength training (10-second push-ups and squats), isometrics, exercises I recognize from rehabbing my back after surgery, and even some actual yoga. Se...

Re: Seeahill: once more into the fray

March 1: starting date weight: 243.8 March 15: 236 March 31 weight: 236. That's right, I didn't lose any weight in the last two weeks. Stress, I suppose. Still, it's a monthly loss of 7.8 pounds. I'd like to revisit Jason's and Fat Cat's challenge since my original maffs were off. If you can lose a ...

Re: COVID-FIT: Survive the Chinese AIDS

Turns out being obese, or even over-weight puts you in some jeopardy; In the new report, seven in 10 patients admitted in intensive care units in the United Kingdom with coronavirus were those who are obese or overweight. The team from the Intensive Care National Audit and Research Centre studied al...

Shape, I sent that PM to you because you haven't been posting and we were all worried about you because of the STDs. Happy to see here in spite of all that.

Re: My State Has Gone Full Fucking Clownship

They closed down Yellowstone National Park and adjoining Teton National Park. The idea is that those of us who live in places adjoining the Parks do not need infected folks coming through, perhaps spreading the disease. That's important where I live. We have no reported cases in my town (7000) or co...

Of course, you mean whale-ish in the context of a great and powerful swimmer. Luke: I don't know if near drowning damages the lungs. Googling only seems to turn up what happens on the spot and nothing on long term damage. As for holding my breath, I think nearly 3 minutes is good and should indicate...

Holding your breath: a measure of lung health?

My lady friend said she was worried about me being at risk for COVID-19 due to decreased lung capacity. As you might recall, I drowned five years ago. Of course, as a guy, I said, "bullshit. My lungs are fine." So she challenged me to hold my breath. I did for just short of three minutes. This, I kn...

Re: COVID-FIT: Survive the Chinese AIDS

I just started up my trail walking and bodyweight stuff again after a long lay off. It feels good to feel my body get back into some kind of shape and the work has improved my mood.

That last is what I think is what could help insulate me from infection. A good mood and a positive attitude.

Yes. Gav has insight and experience we are likely to have in two or three weeks. Talking with Gav is like looking into the future.

So, Gav, anything you see the US not doing that needs to be done?

As a guy who has malaria. I can say it sucks. About half a million people a year die from it. Mostly kids under 5. Mostly in Africa. South Asia a close second. My point to Turd was that we in the US don't suffer from it. He asked if a few bald eagles were worth so many deaths. CDC says there are alm...

Re: Jordan Peterson

Klonopin? I had a bout with anxiety and took it for several months. Then I didn't need it anymore and stopped taking it. Easy. I never even thought about it.

Well, I suppose all people are different, but to go to Russia and put yourself into a coma?
