I'll also take a look at "Starting Strength". Thanks all!
My Primal Meanderings
Can anyone confirm that? I looked through some links but the threads are really huge. The weightlifting is part of my physical therapy so I'm anxious to know.
Yeah - man, I wish some nerd like Mark would help me verify how legit Dr. Kruse is. I have a feeling I'll be trying the same thing soon, but not before I put a lot more effort into my exercise regimen over the next month. If going hard as I can (with enough recovery time, don't worry) for a month still doesn't do much on the weight scale, it'll be time to experiment.
I've lost weight and fat, but not changed shirt sizes. That's an amazing thing about Primal. Traditionally, I've always been told it's not possible or efficient to both lose fat and gain muscle at the same time, but with changing body composition, that seems to be exactly what I'm experiencing. It's weird, but cool.
There were actually old pics of me fitting in much smaller shirts, and I've always thought to myself that I'd love to be back to that weight. I kept those old shirts wishing someday they'd fit again. However, I look at those photos now, and I think "man I look sickly!" Yes I was thinner, but I was pale, my arms were smaller, and I just looked... off. At first I was disappointed that I couldn't fit into those shirts, now, with a properly-proportioned chest (Im a guy), it appears I was never meant to.
