    Training 3 days on, one off for cardio. I have an incredible trainer down in Norman OK that runs a veritable bodybuilding champion factory. Everything is high speed, heavy weight, supersetted. We found ways to work around my back issues and even strengthen it by strengthening my abs and obliques. Having done that we could start building mass on my poor legs. From two ropey sticks I now have a nice quad and hamstring sweep. I spend less and less time in my chair, not cured but strong enough to get out and stay out most days.

    for example, Tuesday's leg workout:
    10 sets incline leg press supersetted with standing ham curls
    5 sets lunges supersetted with quad extensions
    finished up with burnouts, drop setted lying hamcurls/seated extensions/ adductor presses.
    30 seconds rest between sets. It takes me 30 minutes for my legs to stop shaking long enough to drive home.
    I now duckwalk because I can't pull my knees together. Thats how big my quads are now.
    The other thing fixed was my diet and supplementation. I was so fearful of getting fat I sabotaged my growth. I'm now on 7,000 calories a day and I still get hungry!

    Yeah i still get back pumps from hell that knock the breath out of me, some days I still have bladder and bowel issues - not so much now that i am off dairy.

    It's all about progress.

          I'm still at #48. It has snowed 5 feet, yes, 5 feet in 2 days. I80 is closed, too much of a good thing. There is no end in site - it is 'SNOWmageddon" here. There will be skiing in May off piste. You should come out. We will have fun.

              You da man, Steve. The fish must fear you and the yellow necky.

              In my neck of the woods, the ski areas all broke 600 inches for the year, it is absolutely crazy there and 3 more feet are expected tomorrow. I'm headin' up tomorrow.

                I have been riding a ladies cruiser since January. The ladies frame made it easy to mount and dismount. This week I learned how to get on my regular mountain bike. Yesterday I gave myself a real challenge, some real mountain bike riding, including a significant climb. I was definitely tired at the top, and it was a little scary coming down. Today my back and shoulders are really tight. I guess from the more aggresive riding position. I'm psyched because a few months ago I didn't know if I would ever ride a bike again.

                      Oh, no! That's a hell of a workout.

                        OK - I'm 5 weeks out of surgery (ACDF C3/4/5), 1 year after ACDF C5/6/7...left with SCI @ C5 causing cervical myelopathy that seems to be progressing quickly. Muscle pain from spatsicity on left side is bad. I need to get motivated to get out and work through the pain (that I know will be worse afterwards)....so going for a walk this evening....will report back. Nice to have people that understand the impact of the pain!

                          Hello Cajun,

                          What kind of injury do you have, may I ask? Do you use an AFO?

                          Yesterday - nordic sitski day #50 (have to keep with up with brother, Patrick - thanks for the motivation). Storming, slogging through 4 inches of new wet snow, practiced skiing with 25 lbs of gear under the sitski preparing for me and Wellman's spring trans-Sierra ski traverse - that is if spring ever comes. It has snowed 9 feet in last week up at Tahoe. Squaw Valley is at 630 inches so far and it isn't even April. Snowmageddon.....

                              Bummer, Garro. Get well soon.

                              Very impressive Arndog. I'm on Nordic day 4 or 5. Today was snowy and mighty tough for me. I'm attempting to do the Mammoth Biathlon this Saturday.

                              NorthQuad, that sound like it hurts.

                                You guys are drowning in snow--enjoy. I hit #52 and am going out this afternoon. A colder than normal spring has--thankfully--preserved our snowpack. On thursday, I did something I've always wanted to do: I spent the morning Alpine skiing on my mono and then went to the resort's (Bolton Valley) Nordic Center and did a few K's. Most satisfying...
