Rest Day 090801

Steve's Caption:
Here we have Alex, now making more appearances than Bony, and almost as strong.

My Caption:
Here's Alex, one of our premier members. Alex is 22 years old. He played football in high school and one year in college, and dabbled in Powerlifting with some friends in a garage gym. He came to us a strapping 235lbs, with a 450 Deadlift, a 365 Squat, a 210 Press, and a 305 bench. He was big, strong, and injury free. We were concerned however that he had gotten "too strong", and that his capacity in other physical tasks would be jeopardized. I also feared that his body mass was too much for his 6 foot frame, and that his heart must be overworked. I immediately started him on a Zone Diet consisting of 10 blocks, or roughly 1300 calories. I gave him a steady diet of jump rope, rowing, and 5k runs. I am happy to say that in less than 6 months he's lost roughly 180lbs, and man you should see his six pack (or his clavicles and vertebrae for that matter).

Interesting Fact: According to U.S. laws, a beer commercial can never show a person actually drinking beer.

He is still a beast...

At your suggestion, JP, I purchased and read 5/3/1 and plan to implement the program starting on Monday (3 days a week). I will continue to post my comments, training, and progress here until such time that you create a feminine nickmane for me, or until the utter shame that "Mandy" is posting bigger numbers drives me to the comforting arms of my couch with a stack of oreos and a half gallon of ice cream. So this should last about a week.

Seriously, I liked the book, and I am really excited to implement the program.

Thanks!

Murph
