    yup, i knew you'd like it.

    take a shake pre and post workout. how is your weight?>? if your thin, i would take a casein[slow relese protein] b4 bed.

    also, if your exercising hard go w/ animal paks, best bang 4 your buck. just one pack per day.

    AND GET ON SOME JOINT SUPPORT. gnc triflex is great. im 21 yrs post no joint issues, and i abuse my shoulders.

    stay driven man, u can be ind. its tough but trust me you will be glad u did it. never give up.

    hey man on a side note. my wife and i will be in your neck of the woods saturday for the crue and hinder concert.

      i'm 6' and around 190-195 ... i was around 225 pre-injury - when i got home from rehab i was really thin up top - now that i am pushing more weight and doing my arm bike almost daily my upper body is really coming back - which makes my wife happy

      I checked out the animal pak site - is it a powder or a tablet? Im gonna pick up the 15 pak to try - does it mess with bowels/urine??

      some days are really tough to get going! but i am too young to depend on people! and I cant wait to prove my dr's & therapists wrong .... in a good way

      I live above Philly... you're coming all the way out here?!

            Hey Steve Garro - that is great you got out nordic skiing. Were you off piste or at a track? If the off-piste is setting up nicely, yeah, get out there at sunrise and you can get 2 hours of firm skiing before the sun bakes it.
            We were able to do that in May one year at Mt. Rose Meadows outside of Tahoe. - Then it is still 7 months of withdrawal till the next ski season (I am hopelessly hooked).

            Today - 1.5 hr of crutch walking

            Fri and Sat - each day - 3 hr sitski at the local nordic center - 17 miles covered each day. My arms are cooked, and there is a warm storm coming through - rain to 8000 ft. Perfect rest day from skiing.
            My dog was appreciative of the walk today.

            Fuente - I like your posts..... and your 'tude

            Rhyang - I posted about my firearms tests in recreation forum.

              how "hilly" is it where you ski? man, there is allot of altitude gain at the local center /www.flagstaffnordiccenter.com/trails.php and 17 miles there would WASTE me.......you must be in mighty good shape! Steve.

                Steve -yes, we are doing the most flat trails we can find. Yes, our area has nasty hills and the first few years I thought I had to grunt up them. Now I realize that it isn't as fun as sticking to the flat or gradual hills at all. Secondly, descending in is a non articulating sitski is not pleasurable so one more reason to stick to flatter terrain. There is NO WAY I could have done 17 mi. on hills. I would say that our altitude gain for that was 1000 ft maximum. We have a 3.5 mi loop that is mostly flat and we did 4 laps of that plus getting to the loop and back.....

                  gotcha - i took you for a tough guy, but i though you were going superhuman on me or sumthin! i did do some mighty fine descending, but i also did one hill that dropped 400' or so i a little over a K. and it was pretty exciting, to say the least!!! went up some hills that had me in the red zone, bigtime........

                    Training for state and then national masters track cycing events at the moment, and as soon as they are done I have 1 month to prepare for national paracycling road champs. So I'm into some serious training right now with much higher intensity than I am used to (aiming for the 500m time trial and 3k pursuit on the track so working on short intervals at lactic threshold - OUCHIES!!). Holding up OK so far although I find fatigue the biggest factor at the moment training 6 days a week, often two sessions a day and trying to still be productive on the PhD. Would have been easier 20 years ago but for some silly reason I still enjoy it.

                        Tried monoskiing yesterday. I made pretty good progress. Went up the chairlift a few times. One of the people helping me purposely made me fall so I'd know what it was like. I broke the fall with my arm and heard something pop. I was a little miffed. I was fine, though.
                        It was nice to be outside on the slopes.
                        Now, uhg, I'll go exercise.
                        Sorry, guys, but I'm still resisting regular exercise.

                          Rich - glad you went monoskiing. Was that your first time? I am glad you 'broke the fall with your arm' and not the other way around !
                          Congrats about turning 50. One more reason to really start working out since we all lose muscle mass with age. I survived turning 50 2 years ago.
                          I look forward to you applying Newton's law that a "an object in motion will stay in motion".....
                          You can do it !

                            Thanks arndog,
                            It was my second time. I went 2 years ago.
                            I think I'll check out the YMCA, today.
                            Being a member might help with motivation.
                            But, I think, for me, home workouts will be the way to go.
                            Rich

                              make it a lifestyle rich, or it wont last. those of us here who workout religously do it because its part of who we are.
