    Hun you know where I stand on stretching. Stretching every morning for an hour for more than 20 years...never a problem. I stop for a month and wham, bye bye hamstring.

    Yes sir, it does not take long to lose it at all. I still do not understand that.

    I also bike to and from the gym when Sledge is at work and I've been averaging about 23 minutes each way so that's roughly 45 min of cardio. I wore my HR monitor and I am in the 125-135 zone.

    I also started logging my food on fitday just to see what kind of calories and carbs I've been eating. I average 2000-2500 cals a day and 65-100 carbs a day. I seem to be putting on about 2 pounds a week. I am trying to build but I thnk that may be a little too much. I dunno. I think I'll just stick to the plan until I start my mini cut on Feb 2nd.

    The weights I posted on the Hammer stuff is combined...both sides. The Hammer Strength stuff they have at this gym is stacks instead of plate loaded. And the kg thing keeps me guessing. Remember when you would load the machine and tell me to lift without me knowing the weight and I could always lift more than I thought I could? It's like that.

    I do remember that. First time you almost thought I was lying....then almost had an orgasm over realizing you really did. That was fun to watch.


    4 plates is still 4 plates.....wow.

    I could actually do more weight. The problem, like with DBs, is getting the first one up. The handles are levered so that they are way back and it's hard on my shoulder to push the first one. Once I have it up I can pump out the reps easily. I don't bring my elbows back behind me, just even with my body. Does that make sense?

    Stretching will help your hamstring development as well as prevent injury. Having said that, once you lock yourself in mechanically to do the movement, go down until the tension in the muscle gives you the message to reverse. As you become more flexible, the range of motion will obviously increase, but that's secondary for short term development.

    The cool thing about stretching is that once you're consistent, you will see results quickly.

    Unless there's a bench press contest I joined and didn't know about it doesn't matter how much I bench.

    Hey Girlie,

    Your thread has drawn new blood into the Masters. Good stuff.

    I was one blind date away from taking a job at the Bank of New South Wales in 1966 when I met Randee, my sweetheart. 44 years now. My passport was stamped and flight booked. Never since had the notion to visit Oz. Been a lot of places in the world...but all above the equator.

    Stand up in the machine (like you would be seated in it but stand up) and as you slide down into the seat push the machine up. That will get the first rep up without bring it too far back so as to hurt your shoulder. I have to do that with my hammer chest here, too.
