Looking forward to seeing it

Ok... office crap. So, two guys in the office have this trash talk issue. One is a USC grad and the other is UCLA. Well, the game was this weekend and the UCLA guy came in on Sunday and decorated the other guys space with a metric CRAP-TON of UCLA garb (it even had confetti, flip-flops, blue & yellow feathers, etc). It was pretty epic.

So, the guy from USC comes in this morning...says, "Ha Ha, good one. Now clean it up." And procedes to get majorly pissed when the UCLA guy says he's not cleaning it up. These guys are normally pretty good friends.

In my opinion, guy should just suck it up and clean it up. That's part of the tradition - you lose after talking big smack - you deal with the consequences. Now there's all this inter-office drama going on. I want to move my sh!t outdoors...

It has front lower adjustable, but what's nice about the RK is you can buy in pieces and use certain parts from one lift to the next, which is what you can't do with the AEV and is why I decided not to go with it. Their site specifically says that if you want to go from 2.5 to 3.5, it basically an entirely new kit.

The flex came with new front brake lines, front LCAs, front trackbar, springs, quick discos, and a rear trackbar relocation bracket. All their new bars are adjustable. I'm going to add rear LCAs next to get the axle back to center of the wheel well and then start with rear track bar and UCAs and eventually get bigger springs for a 3.5" way down the road.

I ordered Rancho 9000XL shocks over Bilstein 5100's and Fox 2.0 Emulsions because they're 9 way adjustable and I'm glad I did. Some people say that the Blisteins and sometimes the Fox are too stiff for them. I had mine set to 3 off the bat and it was soft and a little divey. I bumped them up to 5 and now it's closer to stock. I'm sure 9 will handle like a wooden plank and 1 will ride like a cadillac. Plus the adjustments are super easy to get to without having to crawl on the ground to get to them.

I'm getting aligned Friday and after that I should have a definite opinion on the ride. As of now, it's great.

Started a year ago. No real favorites but I like using the dumbbells the most. Find I can do many exercises while sitting down. I get my exercise and can be lazy at same tines. It's a win win thing

Dumbbells are great to workout with. I use them for pretty much everything. I used to workout quite a bit but took 7 months off because I got burned out. Now I'm back into it and I'm motivated again.

Legs day is my favorite, so many guys skip because it is hard but I wouldn't want to have a big upper body on top of chicken legs...sample routine

4 set walking lunges w/dumbbell
10's wu, 25's, 45's, 45's

3 sets Overhead Squats
95, 135, 155

3 sets Squats
185, 225, 275

3 sets Leg extensions-light as a burn out

3 sets leg curls- light as a burn out

2 calf exercises 3 sets each

I am 5'7" 165lbs-ish. Used to stay 185lbs(stocky but a little fat) and powerlifting but my joints remind me I am 35 years old now :-/

Good routine. Yeah, plenty of guys skip legs and end up looking like Mr. Incredible. (cartoon movie reference) My favorite day is back, by far. It's a combination of my personal taste and the fact that chicks love broad backs. LOL I do a fair amount of leg work, but my knees sound like bubble wrap.

I used to live in Shepherdstown, WV, which is right across from the tow path and I would ride my mountain bike 10-20 miles after the work several days a week and up to 30 on the weekends. I'd normally do at least 50 miles a week and up to 150 some others. I went from 260lbs to 195 before moving away to where it's much harder to get out and do anything. I'm going to start running though and I got a hitch rack for the Jeep so I'm going to try and get out and ride again. I ended up gaining a good bit of that back without having an outlet to go be active in.

I hate gyms though. I get irritated around large crowds of people if I'm not drinking, like at a party or something like that, and the gyms around here are usually crowded so it takes a lot of motivation for me to go out to one. If I had the room I'd have a weight bench, dumb bells, and a trainer for my bike and I'd not have to leave the house to work out. I'm looking to buy a house in the next couple months though, so hopefully that will be a possibility and I can get back into shape...well, some shape other that round.

Not really but I keep a fast pace at gym and my heart rate stays north of 130bpm. I generally take 20-30sec between sets, I know I could lift more if I took a longer break but I try to stay more ripped than big these days and if I keep my heart rate up I do not have to do much cardio.

I do when I have time, but how much you should do all depends on your overall goal & your lifting routine. I don't do anymore than three sessions a week normally.

I go to a small 24 HR gym right down the street from me. It has everything I need but since it lacks large racks you don't get all the meat heads in there. Overall fitness is my main goal, just avoiding being TOO round. Although, at 5'-7" and 205 I'm not a lightweight.
