                  Because it's healthy?

                    heh I am probably weaker on bench than "the chubby kid"

                    Thank you!

                      Do you need that much though? Or is gaining not really your goal here?

                        Again, you do not log your training yet you question mine. Interesting.

                        What is your goal... here?

                          Touche'.

                          I just have not gotten back to logging mine, as I still have yet to work out the inconsistencies of my schedule, and I hate to log a day or two, then miss two or three days because of not making it to the gym, then picking back up... leaving holes, basically.

                          But fine. I like accountability. I should get back to logging.

                            If you do not exercise then there is nothing to log.

                            Don't call it "not making it to the gym," but rather a recovery day. Rest is when we grow. Or so I've been told.

                            The cardio I perform is long slow distance at a heart rate of 130 beats per minute or less per Dave Palumbo's training philosophy. I've done HIIT before and that worked well, however I'm using LSD currently and enjoying it.

                            My training journal or workout journal is a record of my workouts. If I miss then the journal is evidence of that. Rest and recovery might just be a useful euphemism for you, GX.

                            And re cardio needs, I've been this



                            And I've been this



                            The former was 149 lbs. courtesy of 1500 kcals per day and double cardio sessions in addition to lifting four times per week.

                            After the 1500-calorie experiment was complete, I upped the food intake.

                            The latter was a result of 3K kcals per day and a minimum gram per pound of bodyweight regimen.

                            I had been taking in 4K kcals per day but began to get too heavy, blurry at about 195 lbs. Not good. So I decreased my calories for a time and have dipped back to about 180-185.

                            My goal is growth, however not at the expense of my waistline - notoriously wide thanks to excess fat but moreso thanks to an unfortunate bone structure, at least by bodybuilding standards.

                            The overal goal is to look like a 1975 Arnold Schwarzenegger, however that leaves reality behind. More realistically, I'd like to decrease body fat and increase strength. Size would be nice, but I'm concentrating on my waistline and strength at this point in time.

                            I wish you good training!
