On Exercise: Progress

I started noticing that as I increased the weights I train with, my I keep loosing proper form, it reached a level that when I squatted I couldn’t break parallel, so I decided to take a step back in my weights.

If you don’t want to be someone that has a stiff and unnatural walk, then you should make the most out of your exercise motion, try starting from the point of least muscle stress to the point of most muscle stress.

When I do bench presses I make sure that the bar touches my chest when lowering it, and the push motion ends at just before my elbows lock, this was the form I lost at 220 lbs, now I’m back to 190 lbs to master the form yet again.

Squatting used to hurt my knees and back occasionally, but since I started breaking parallel at the ‘down’ motion, the pain is completely gone, and the soreness resonates to to areas that it didn’t reach before.

From now on I will prioritize form over gains or weight increases, this should result in a better overall posture, more flexibility and eventually getting a stronger and fitter body.

On Exercise: Journal Entry

So I’ve been exercising for 4 weeks now, 3 times a week. I keep increasing my exercising weights by increments of 5 lbs each workout, and I finally split the five exercises in a practical manner.

The problem is that I cannot add my calisthenics to the routine due to time limitations, I only have 1.5 hours each day to exercise, and whenever I exercise heavy weights I require rest the following day.

Another factor I’ve begun noticing is motivation, the routine has been established and its becoming easier and easier to start my day early, it started feeling like an obligation, like washing your teeth in the morning or making your bed.

I finally set down with exercising 2-3 heavy weight exercises and doing from 10-30 mins cardio each day I workout, I also add a minimum of 1 calisthenics exercise. Eventually I plan on working out 5 times a week with cardio substituting with my rest days, I still can’t find the energy for it, possibly due to the winter.

So far I’ve been keeping track of my progress via a sheet where I record the reps, weights, exercises and sets for each workout. I am considering replacing the workout number with the actual date of the workout, also adding my weight and, perhaps, body fat percentage.

I plan to continue with this routine for another 8 weeks and, hopefully, by then I would have a better conclusion regarding the experianced workout, so far I’m loving it.

The Perfect Woman

This is the first of many posts, in this particular post I will talk about what the perfect woman looks like to most men.

This question is a puzzling one, especially if you are a girl or woman, you want to know what men want, not necessarily because you want to be able to make yourself desirable for every single dude out there, or that one particular guy you have a crush on, maybe you are just curious, either way this is where you should be.

First we will discuss the physical features. The typical kind of woman that people, even men, think is “desired” looks pretty much like 0.0000000001% of the female population (PS: That is an exaggerated over-estimate). When we think “bombshell” we think big round breasts (not too big), nice round butt, hourglass shaped body, long thick hair that flows, sightly tanned, oh and I almost forgot the “wearing minimal clothing” part. That in itself might seem quite common, but take a moment to think of how many women you know that look like that? Probably less then 10%, unless you work in the modelling business. So far the face features have not been discussed and the many minor details that are practically impossible to list. Here is an idea of what you may find men staring at:

  • Face, really does not need to be pointed-out
  • Hands, particularly nails and how well they are taken care of
  • Feet, similar to hands, most guys would look at your feet if they get the chance
  • Legs and knees, one of the sexiest parts if well maintained
  • Neck, does not need to be explained
  • Stomach, belly-button area

These are the most commonly checked out parts other then the breasts and butt.

As for the non-physical features, that is where we get really creative, we basically want our best friend in a girls body, this simply cannot be because of how psyches differ between sexes. Men want a girl that understands them (impossible), gives them space, makes them feel needed, laughs at their every joke (especially the bad ones that only they get), fits in well with his friends, is easy going, keeps the asking minimal, cooks well (I know, its sad), motivates them, and spoils them. This is just a small portion of what men want, but you get the point.

Now you probably wounder what the hell is this about, and thinking that most men never get involved with a woman like the one described. Well men have a great weakness, and its women, what we think and what we do is not really related. We have certain ideas and when it comes to applying them we are way off. Do not mistake this for settling, the truth is that we simply like women in any form.

I know that this has been as helpful as trying to build the great wall of China with beavers as construction workers, however, this is just what some people think.

Stay tune for the next article folks.
