The idea for heavy weight lifting if to work to failure. Basically, keep going til you can't do it right or at all. I think alot of my recent problem was I went from shoulders to chest, which didn't give me a lot of recovery room for either muscle group since most chest exercises work shoulders and vice versa.

Well, today's easy, since I'm going to help my sister work out. She wants to lift weights, so big brudder has to help lil sis.

@Hathen I've seen a lot of people increase their weight progression in different ways. Some people do their heaviest set first and work backwards after, a few guys I know do shock methods, where they change entire workouts for muscle groups every visit so they won't do the same exercise twice in a month. Most of my friends who exercise don't even care to increase weights, just doing it for tone. I've been doing the standard 4 set gradual increase, generally starting with a very light weight for a large number of reps, minimally 12. Each following set gets closer to my max weight and less reps per set, so generally sets are 12+, 10, 8, and 6 to 8 or the best I can do. I was doing 5 sets for a while, but I'd generally be shot after 3 workouts which isn't enough to get much of a burn going. I advise everyone to try a heavier weight when they're lifting, and my general mantra is "if you did it once, you can do it again".

Best picture I ever saw.

I changed my pawn's look the other day. I realize that getting a real-life feel is near impossible, given the lack of.hair options, but I'm content that he looks like me to a degree. My main kinda looks like Scarlett Johansson. Yes I made a female main, she's hot.

I jump between assasin, strider, and ranger when I feel lazy. I maxed out fighter and warrior for their augment skills, and mostly just run around on assasin since they have the movement of strider and the melee of fighter.

I fought an Ur Dragon earlier, online version. A lot easier than I remember.

Less rumors, more Tales of Xillia.

I hate being a mage in this game so bad.

Ohhh, so since Parn's playing the expansion, I can't use his pawn anymore? That sucks.
1762  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: Alright peeps, lets try: Top 10 Favorite Games on: May 12, 2013, 03:35:41 PM
In order of most preferred/most repeated playthroughs.

Final Fantasy Tactics
Final Fantasy VI
Final Fantasy VII
Megaman X
Super Mario World
Super Mario Brothers 3
Xenosaga 3
Megaman Legends
Dragon's Dogma
Saga Frontier

Any of those 10 games I can pick up and play again from any point in game and know where I am, where to go, and have some level of fun. I have a large number of other games I can add to this list in regards to picking up and playing again, but these are the top 10.

Nah, was home already. Regretting going so hard, my elbows, shoulders, and chest all hurt like a bitch.

The pain only means you're getting stronger
No, this pain means I went to hard and probably pulled something. My left shoulder has been sore for 4 days now, and I can't my arms behind my head or backside right now at all. I've gotta put less EVERYTHING into my workouts.

I've become a far more confident and far less timid person since highschool. Dunno what incited the changes, but I do know that if I were like how I am now back 20 years ago, I'd be living a very different life now. Thing is I dunno if the updated me is better or not, I'm just more comfortable this way and less nerve wracked.

Basically, i can't see the future so I don't know what's a better approach to life, we just need to do what lets us remain happy.

I'm debating on it. Need a few bucks first, but I'd love to play it. Shame gamefly doesn't have it.

How come your pawn is only level 38? Also, why can't I take him with me?

Maybe it's time for a change in your lifestyle, Alisha.

You have it on ps3, right parn? Better be using my pawn you dirty sonuvabitch!

I should update it, I'm not THAT fat anymore.

I'm level 106, why on earth would I use your pawn.

(I think I used him when I was in my 70s)
...because I totally forgot I stopped leveling after 80ish... heh heh.
