    Re: 2017 Health and Fitness Thread

    oorboy- So glad to hear your ticker is still doing well! Thirteen years is a good long time so I bet that`s a load off your mind.

    And heh heh...I too remember zillion-coats-of-wax F bodies in the `70s We`re dating ourselves here, huh?

    Ronkh- (Since I just can`t leave you alone ) that potential for broken hips (which is what finally spelled the end for a few people I`ve known, including my mother) is another reason to do stuff that`s conducive to maintaining bone density...stuff like hard resistance exercise.

    Supposedly, one reason why JCNA doesn`t judge undercarriages at their Concours is because the judges aren`t able to to do the required up-and-down. That reminds me....[next post setup]..

    Supposedly one of the primary biomarkers inversely correlated to death (death from all causes in all population samples...young/old, healthy/ailing, you name it..) is the ability to get up and down off the ground/floor without using one`s hands.

    Another is walking at least 2 miles/day on average, which is also *positively* correlated to gray matter mass (once it`s been done for at least six months and maintained after that). I get a lot of that with the dogs, walking briskly cross-country while I have them do interval training (sit/stay while I walk away for a good long distance, then call them to heel, they race to catch up with me).

    So- test yourself and see how ya do on the up/down, and try to walk as much as you can as often as you can (that`s the "gather" part of Hunt & Gather for me).

    Yeah, that sure wouldn`t help (something young studs don`t consider when they juice). More reason to prioritize stuff that might benefit it

    Heh heh, if I`m ever in your neck of the woods I actually *do* want to go out to eat with you, whereupon I`ll put away tons of the food I`m always denigrating I have complete confidence that whatever the type of fare desired, you`d know where to get the best examples and it`d be a genuine treat for me (just one I wouldn`t repeat too often).

    Re: 2017 Health and Fitness Thread

    I always like these health threads. I`m down 22 lbs so far this year! I weighed myself at the end of 2016 and couldn`t believe the number. I had really let myself go. So I set out to really clean up my diet and it worked. The first 2 weeks were hard, but I made it. I haven`t had a lot of bad things since January 1st (no soda, candy, chocolate, chips, cream or sugar in coffee, etc etc) and the first 10 lbs came off fast. Then I started walking every day and hit some of my pushup, crunch, squats goals. Now I`m starting to plateau and I`m thinking of joining a gym soon. But I feel 100 times healthier.

    Wow I can still do both if i had to .. but hands do help .... and yeah having a dog certainly makes you walk a lot more than if you didn`t .. no motivation really needed.

    The real test should be can you put your underwear on standing up
    life is short ..do it while you can

    I definitely didn`t juice. This was prescribed.

    Head on over.. Lotsa good food here, healthy good stuff too.

    Re: 2017 Health and Fitness Thread

    Vega- Hey, that`s good progress, and !yeah! on the walking...about the best single thing anybody can do IMO.

    IMO too many of the dietary "guidelines" (another of those intentional scare-quotes) are BS too...e.g., IMO the govt. food pyramid is about as valid as most of the stuff the Govt. tells ya to do/not IIRC they`re still nixing whole milk (despite all the recent Med. Journal studies) and pushing Omega 6 fatty acids as if they worked like the Omega 3s.

    I`m all in favor of Cheat Days, as long as they don`t stretch out to the point of hindering progress. Heh heh, hence my six-week Cheat Period every year! And Easter candy, BDay cakes...mmmm I`m on-board for plenty of the stuff I tease Ron about, just in moderation.

    Yeah, our dogs need a *LOT* of activity, awfully high-maintenance breed in that regard (and they`ll destroy the house if they don`t get it). Being able to lift/carry them as needed is motivation for staying fit too, I`ve had to carry a large injured dog a *LONG* way a few times and it was simply a do-or-die situation.

    That "can you put on your underwear?" thing has made me wonder about most people too...it never occurred to be until recently that folks would have to sit/lean/whatever when getting (un)dressed. Ditto for washing/drying one`s feet in the shower, don`t people just lift their leg up and stand on the other one? I gather, "not"... I don`t do much balance work at all, but I do some, apparently it`s enough.

    Strengthening move for standing on one leg- While standing and holding on to something stable, hold a db or weight plate on the top of one thigh enough behind the knee for comfort; slowly raise leg up as high as possible and hold for a second or two; lower leg even slower than you raised it but don`t quite lower it enough that the foot touches the ground; repeat for reps, but only do one set (to absolute failure); repeat for other leg. Every other workout I add an elastic resistance band to add additional and progressive resistance (this type of progressive resistance offers a better match to the strength curve of the Rectus Femoris, which seldom gets much work anyhow).

    Ronkh- Yeah, I figured you were on an Rx regimen for the steroids. Another case of somebody who *needs* a certain substance having a better grasp of the situation than people who use such stuff for the wrong reasons.

    And I bet the seafood down there is great and those steaks you always post pix of look tasty too! See, I do appreciate such stuff even if I give you a hard time about it

    I love steaks. I HATE fat, so I waste a lot. But I really don`t consider it waste since it don`t go to my waist....

    Love seafood.

    Face it, I love food......... But at least I`m not carrying around as much tonnage as I did for the steroid period.

    Re: 2017 Health and Fitness Thread

    Ronkh- Yeah, I bet coming off the steroids was pretty significant.

    I`m right there with you on the "don`t like the fat, waste a lot of certain cuts". I give the borderline bits to the dogs, who seem to burn it off just fine.

    I`m actually glad that I *don`t* love food...actually it`s more like I simply *hate* a lot the stuff that most people eat regularly- I hate all cheeses, processed tomato products (so no sauces/pizza/ketchup/etc. period), garlic, other condiments (mustard/salad dressing/etc.), cooked fruits (love most raw ones), and most anything else that`s even remotely "interesting"-tasting by normal standards. So by the time I get down to the relatively ew ( and relatively bland) things that I *do* like it`s easy for me to have an attitude of "it`s just fuel, I either find it palatable or I can`t eat it". Somehow that`s turned into my finding my incredibly bland dry cereals just as tasty as the finest cuts of meat...go figure, but it sure works great for me. Makes me pretty useless with regard to suggesting dietary specifics to others though.
