  • Snatch High Pull

    5/27/2016 9:23:02 AM, by NEPTUNE1939

    Snatch High Pull; 5x5x45, 1x5x65, 4x5x85, 2x5x90- 84.1% of 1RM. This is a challenging exercise for me as when exploding the barbell up from knee height to chest level the weight tends to throw me off balance. 24 But it is a great one for shoulders. I need to execute this one better before more we... Read more

  • Slowly Adjusting Mentally

    5/27/2016 1:21:49 AM, by BMCC488

    Yesterday my eating was barely okay and then after dinner, I threw things out the window. So frustrating. I was trying to think what I did last time when I slowly got back on track. It really shouldn't be as hard this time because I'm in a way better headspace but I thought maybe I could follow a si... Read more

  • Taking a New Vitamin!

    5/26/2016 3:29:40 PM, by SUNSHINE192DAY

    I've been put on a new prenatal vitamin. Early in my pregnancy when I took a vitamin with iron my body didn't process it correctly and I would end up with an over supply of it and pass out. I never got hurt because, thankfully, I would sit before I got to that point. However, now with Benny moving a... Read more

    Hard, busy day at work, but I am drinking more water. Kristen showed me a new exercise, then to relieve the pressure of the accumulated fluid on my knee, muscles and nerves, she taped my shin, calf and lower leg. I felt pain relief almost immediately. She did massage that painful set of musc... Read more

    5/26/2016 1:46:36 PM, by KRISSY82

    Before I begin, I'd like to acknowledge my awareness of the devastating sicknesses other people face. When I see someone with cancer, MS, or dementia, I realize how lucky I am to be as healthy as I am. With that being said, I feel that I need to share my experience, even if no one reads it...perha...

  • Feeling lazy

    5/26/2016 1:37:39 PM, by MLIEN913

    Today is very hot and I'm feeling lazy. To think, I was still wearing a jacket at the start of the week and now it's 90 degrees outside. Worse yet, my office space has hit 97 because of the computers. It's so hard to excerise when it's this hot and sticky. Hopefully I can get an AC unit this weekend... Read more

    I can try and act like I don't know what has brought me here. Claim ignorance and say "I don't know what happened" but sadly I do know what happened. I gave up on myself. I have always been bigger, I am a thick lady, but I had also always been active. I used to cycle with my father once a week... Read more
