Ummmm I think it's that the more hydrated you are the less body fat it says you have.
If that's the case then I'm more than 16% likely. Had a big shake before hitting the gym. The mirror is what counts anyway. And I am not pleased with what I'm seeing right now. Always room for improvement.
Good luck in the job hunt and congratulations on graduating. Do I have that right?
Goal is 175 lbs., but the bigger goal is dealing with this elbow. I dropped triceps pushdowns as that's what I had been hitting seriously. Aggravating to have any kind of injury.
Crap. Well, doesn't Google suck?
"Tendonitis in the elbow is often referred to as tennis elbow, but it can happen with any sport or exercise. As with many injuries to the elbow, tendonitis occurs due to repeated action. The repetition is not exclusive to the elbow; movement of the hand and arm can contribute to tennis elbow. Elbow tendonitis reduces the strength in the entire arm. You may have trouble picking things up or holding something in your hand. You will certainly have problems lifting a weight with the injured arm. If you suspect you have tennis elbow, stop lifting and allow the tendons to heal. Use ice and over-the-counter pain relievers to reduce discomfort. You may want to consider a brace or wrap on the elbow to reinforce it in the future and prevent a chronic problem."
I do enjoy Curts cheat meals, is it me though or do you eat out alot Curt?
All the time, but they're not fancy restaurants. Prices are reasonable.

Yup. I picked up an Ace bandage thing. It offers support, but I also started a self-imposed left-side ban for three weeks to let the tendon heal.
The Ace gizmo appears in the treadmill vid (below).
Yesterday I forgot to include the one "meal". I had four hard boiled eggs and a Coke Zero in the evening after the Wendy's meal.
Hey, that protein counts, what, about 6 grams per egg?
Gained .4 lbs.?
Going to stop ball parking my food quantity and meal count.

Rotator work 3 X 15 In and Out
Life Fitness chest press (right arm only) 30 X 12, 35 X 12, 40 X 12, 45 X 10
Pec Deck (right arm only) 40 X 12, 50 X 12, 65 X 12, 90 X 12, 110 X 12, 12
Not sure how those numbers work. Does the machine work if you're using just one arm?*
Knee raises 3 X 20
Crunches 3 X 20
Side bends 25# db 3 X 20
Treadmill 25 minutes 3.5 speed 2.0 incline
*Was doing same weight with two arms. Maybe leverage from holding non-working arm against my leg? Because I can't pec deck 200. And I definitely have not doubled my strength.
I bring you the world's crappiest training video!
Minutes before closing time, place was DEAD (clearly and visibly d-e-a-d). Scanned or panned or whatever the video term is for "pointing at" my Ace brace, the area around the treadmill, and, uh, the annoying/buzzing fluorescent lights!
Food: Wednesday, 4/27
6:30 a.m. Heaping teaspoon of peanut butter and a 50g protein shake (zero carb) for breakfast.
8 am. black coffee during the student breakfast time.

i ate a 5lb pumpkin pie from costco once. yes i won the contest haha
nice cheat i want pizza(sabarro?)
oh and nice bicep vein!
Mine wasn't a 5lb pie but it was a LOTTA PIE all the same. lol Congrats on the contest. I almost puked. Seemed like a good idea at the time. Reduced fat milk, though.
Yes, sabarro! I drove to Lancaster tonight, took the Turnpike and stopped at a rest area/store thing along the way. Had purchased the pie earlier and had it in the car. lmao
Took my fork and my pie and walked in and sat down at one of their tables. The place was empty except for a motorcyclist couple warming up along their ride from central PA to Philly (I stopped to gab and wish them a safe trip. ) After the pie, I had that slice of pizza and a courtesy cup of water (Thank you, sabarro clerk man!).
The two Yuenglings were drinked/drank/drunk (**** Grammar!) at the Cocalico Tavern with my brother (who hosts their karaoke nights), his girlfriend, and a friend Stacey who encouraged me to have a Jager bomb. But I stood my ground and stuck with the two beers.

Didn't think it was so bad until about three hours later when I tried to stand up!
I definitely want to work out with you. From the Sousa Days at the gym and now the Potters Walk? Oh, yeeeeeeaaaahhhh!!!!
Just watched your squats vid, i lift about the same as you on squats, its a troublesome exercise for me. So ive decided to do heavy leg press first so i can attack my legs with some serious weight and then use squats to finish my legs off. This means it doesnt matter so much about the weight or lack of it as my legs are already fatigued from the leg press, works better for me and my thighs are growing. Maybe it will work for you too Curt, just a thought!
All I ask is the chance to prove that money can't make me happy.
