Three year update

August 22, 2013

195lbs, 44

Sold my rack and most of my weights earlier this year. Lifting became boring, was leading to back pain and I don't really care for it anymore. Did DJ mass made simple and was up past 215 bw. I'm more than strong enough for my lifestyle but want to implement a new regimen for maintenance.

Spend Dec-April skiing and June-Sept downhill mountain biking on Saturdays and holidays. Injuries past three years: fractured wrists, elbow fragments, shoulder, back, fingers/toes, torn gastro, sprained ankles, knee, scars, etc. Mostly from biking but shoulder/back/head from skiing. Would I have been significantly more injured if I hadn't lifted? I think so but who knows; rocks and trees are unforgiving. Far more important to know how to fall/roll than being armoured with muscle. All activity in mountains solo + gopro. Trying to tone it down, introducing kids to skiing, focusing on bike repair and flow over danger. Will never golf if possible.

Finding RICE to be more beneficial as I age and self massage important plus some simplified yoga/stretching. Out of physio, massage, yoga and chiro only physio worked for me.

When I find time like to (40 swings, 6/4/2/1 press, 40 swings, 20 push ups) x 3 or something similar. Frankly this is very seldom and needs to become routine. Enjoying vaporizer (2-3 nights/week) and have cut back on alcohol. Probably the best thing I've done for my health is to quit smoking and cut back on booze. Try to keep it at 1L beer per night on weekends only. More leads to hangovers - I can't drink like I used to and that's a great thing. Stopped watching TV/movies and am trying to remove violent imagery from my life. Diet is basic, eat regular food and less protein. Some weeks eat out 8-10 meals: sparkling water, soup and salads, no fries.

Just got a dog and am looking forward to regular walks.

Great update.

How do you think removing the negative imagery has helped you?

Frankly I don't think I'm missing much, most entertainment caters to the lowest common denominator. I can't join conversations about shows but I don't have the time to watch them now anyhow.

I feel like it has helped me with my own anger. I want to be calmer and not get mad at other drivers or raise my voice when speaking to family. I've tried to be nicer to people, smile more and hope I provide a positive example for my children.

I think we need to start an anger thread. Good luck with everything.

February 5, 2016
46, ~195lbs, 6'

One arm press 30 x 5
Push up x 20
Pull up x 5
BP 45x5, 135x5
Pull up x 5
(BP 185 x 5, PU x 5) x 3
BP 135 x 5
Pull up x 5
16k swing x 60, one arm press x 5, 3

Doing similar 2-3 times a week < 20 minutes, dog walking and skiing. Reading books and continue to enjoy the internet, watch some mild TV. Downhill biking May to Sept includes planning, travel and maintenance/overhauls (1+ H/wk).

Beer and medical cannabis weekend nights.

Findings
Cook with medium heat; always preheat.
Refrigerate clarified butter for frying, very easy to make.
Heavy cream adds depth. Always have pancetta on hand.
Digital kitchen scale can weigh liquid in ml.
1-1.5L beer or half bottle wine is the perfect amount. Get drunk infrequently.
Lower back issues helped by light yoga (<5 mins). Swings are very beneficial.
Volume anything not good.
Feel stressed? Clean your environment. Use nitrile gloves for carving turkey and handiwork.
Clothes and shoes should be comfortable. Ties dress anything up. Have character.
Wear outfits that can pass through a metal detector; travel light.
Small duffel bags are superior to rollers, flexible.
Get smallest computer possible. Get bag that won't allow you to carry much.
Update bios/drivers and backup personally.
Use paper: tiny notebooks and short quality pencils stimulate memory.
Manual grinder, simple coffee maker.
Wear a wristwatch.
Regularly purge items/wardrobe.
Smile at people and look them in the eye.
Floss.
