#MakeYourselfGreatAgain: The GAINZZZ Thread

I'm back on course. I had gone up 2 1/2, um, okay, being honest, 3 pounds. I had no idea why. But I've lost those three pounds again and am back where I was when I was crowing about my GAINZZZ.

The only thing I did different was get back on Intermittent Fasting, including two long fasts, one thirty hours or so, another 19 or 20 hours. So right now I'm thinking that's a big component of the LCHF/IF regime.

I've also been more regular about drinking apple cider vinegar at night, and recently I've been having some during the daytime too (especially after I have a meal that has a few too many carbs in it). Supposedly it might, might help blunt insulin overproduction.

I started weightlifting more again -- for the real GAINZZZ -- and immediately did an exercise wrong and injured myself. The problem is this: When I was a kid, the only lifts I did, pretty much, were benching, curling, some tricep extension, and some military pressing.

Exercises I never did were squats, deadlifts, and any kind of bent-over rows. (I did rarely do some lat pulls on a machine.)

Now I'm trying to really focus on the "Forgotten Man" muscle groups of the body, as Lord Emperor Trump, The Golden Colossus, has commanded me. But I don't know how to do them. The latest one I thought I knew how to do, but in fact did not, were bent-over dumbbell rows. I had my elbows way out, instead of tucked closer to my body, which resulted in a lot of strain on my elbows and some smaller muscles that rotate the forearms outwards which really couldn't hack the weight.

Anyway, always watch several videos for any lifts you don't know cold, and read a text description too, rather than going by eye.

So far I have injured myself on every new lift I've tried to do.

Maybe it's time to just follow Professor Broscience and do nothing but bicep curls again.

So, Obama's out of office, and that cloud isn't over our heads anymore. It's time to be happy and fulfilled.

If you're gonna make some GAINZZZ in your life, now's the time to get on them GAINZZZ. It would be nice to live as long as possible in a country no longer under the maladministration of Barack Obama, with that half-a-mish telling you "You didn't build that" when you've got a sweet bicep pump on.
