Allen, you're welcome by any time...you don't have to wait for the open house to come check us out!

Steve, thanks for the link, reading now!

Peter, that's the stance I've found works best for these things. It seems there are two ways to go about dealing with an injury; 1. get pissed off at lost training time and stress yourself out chomping at the bit to get back to training or, 2. look at it as a change of pace and an opportunity to try new things and just relax and let it take its course. #2 is the method I like the best, and I'm working towards a bunch of new goals right now to reflect the change in training that I forced upon myself!

All-in-all I think I might be looking at a longish layoff to deal with some nagging injuries that I've been ignoring over the past few years. No problem there, I have my entire life, so I'm planning on pursuing some other activities to keep me busy; bodyweight strength skills, get back to hiking more, and maybe even give bodybuilding for its own sake a try again (gasp!) Note, when I say this I mean bodybuilding along the lines of Tommy Kono and Steve Reeves....and if I add any hammer curls to my program I promise not to tell you guys..

All you have to do is get in his mind until his powers run out and then cut his head off...

That's it she called Wolverine weak minded!!

Physically weak???? Compared to people with augmented strength like Rogue, Colossus, Hulk...etc Yeah Wolvie is pretty weak compared to them, however! Compared to the average human being Wolverine is very much above the average. He's 200 pounds (w/out admantium) at the height of 5'3"!!! With admantium he's 300 pounds and stronger.

I do recall a few issues where Wolverine by sheer force of will was able to circumvent telepaths trying to root around in his head.

True his healing factor is not inexhaustible BUT in Ultimate Hulk/Wolverine, the hulk tore Wolverine in half...but that didn't stop him!


Ok this geekiness must stop......

LOL! I guess you're right about the stamina--he did fight Omega Red for 18 hours...and break those steel chains. I still think Jesse could take him on though-- he would likely outsmart him and wouldn't be as susceptible to telepathy! Plus he has far less baggage. In addition, Wolverine has some serious anger issues he needs to work on.

Bench 10x10 with 30sec rest, same weight and eat a ton PWO (no fat)....do that once a week and I am sure you will get plenty big on the chest side. Repeat for shoulders and back...pick your exercise.

Oh yeah? Well, take this!

Actually, it's just an analysis. This is bringing back high school memories...all the lost hours of my misspent youth.

I'm a Gambit fan myself.

Jesse-
Late to the party, super sorry to hear about the bum wheel! Hammer some progressive overload...free standing HSPU's on paralettes...wearing a 30lb vest?! I arm chins? I think we will see some growth with that. If the fat gain is an issue just keep a tight reign in the nutrition. Track EXACTLY what you are eating to keep most gains flowing into Los Musculos.

Keep us posted you big stud!

Default damn...

Damn you allen...that fight was totally rigged!

Mike, sounds like a semi-german volume type scheme. Have you used this yourself with good results? Sounds like the perfect prescription for massive DOMS...which is always fun!
