Project HUGE In 2007

By Ben Nadel on

For a short while, Project HUGE was on track and going strong. Then, around Thanksgiving, everything just went wrong. My structure was lost, my eating was horrible, my workouts were non-existent. It's time to get things back on track - to really throw myself back into my workouts.... again. Sure, maybe I have tried a bunch of times, but working out is too much fun and it is too important for my health to give up.

This year, for motivation, I am starting to rock a new workout t-shirt:

Nothing like reaching back and calling on the old Gods of bodybuilding for a little support and inspiration.

I am also thinking about purchasing a new pair of straps. Mine are so drenched with sweat and filth that they are almost hard to hold on to (yeah, that's kind of sick, but hey, 5 years of body oil adds up eventually).

All being said, I am totally pumped up for a new year of lifting heavy stuff off the floor :) At the very least, hopefully one day I wont't be afraid of having girls like this kick my ass:

Here's to having a pump-tastic new year!

Ben, what kind of sports drinks do you like to bring to the gym?

I often get dizzy spells mid-way through a workout. At first I thought I might not be drinking enough water, after doing some research, I found that too much water can actually make my condition worse. Everyone recommended sports drinks because they have sugar and carbs, makes since in retrospect.

I recently started making my own sports drinks (not to be confused with energy drinks: red bull, etc.). Water down some OJ and add a little sea salt. That's it. Seems to do the trick.

Daniel,

I either just drink straight up water, or I make a mixture of something called v-12 Turbo Fuel Injection (http://www.vitaminshoppe.com/store/en/browse/sku_detail.jsp?id=UG-7012). It just helps with the pump (which to me is mental, but I will take any lift I can get).

Come to think of it though, having something with a little sugar probably wouldn't be a bad idea. But other than that, I don't really do anything special.

I just keep it old school son and drink water. :) I don't drink much though while working out I've noticed it either gives me cramps or makes me more exhausted. If I'm doing running in between long sets I'll have a drink a little (not fast either) while taking a breather.

"Sure, maybe I have tried a bunch of times, but working out is too much fun and it is too important for my health to give up."

Well said! I agree its way to much fun. I'll admit I'm just as lazy as anyone else but the trick to work out is to always tell yourself it feels good which is the truth. Everytime I come home from working out I feel all around better and I sure as hell sleep better too. Glad to see you are back on track with your Project HUGE.

Back on track, but off to a slow start. Work and family obligations have slammed me this week! Hopefully in the next few days I can kick it off.

Your form is superb, your muscle tone very good;..., for a young man. The days of true Devinely designed identity has been so assaulted by the enemy of our souls, that we all fall to the pressure to bend. You have a lovely face beyond the altered hormonally induced body facade that is transforming your face into a "young man in drag" appearance. It really doesn't matter if the treatments you are "affording" are "100% natural". What do you REALLY need?...........
