#2868469 Pats claim RB Tyler Gaffney off waivers

Posted by Dick the Butcher on 28 July 2014 - 08:33 PM

damn, guys.  y'all really blew this one out of proportion.  guarantee you the patriots' message boards have used 'panthers fans' and 'butthurt' a lot recently.  stop analyzing reasons for taking talent that we cut, and start analyzing our cornerback position.

Did legs today.  Had a terrible weekend food wise.  Not any fried foods; just really good foods that have a lot of fat [meat, heavy cream, desserts, booze].  I've really been focusing on my legs as of late.  I can't do more than 2 times a week simply because they don't recover that fast and I would be constantly stressing them when they're not at full strength.  I used to hate doing them, though.  I love it now.  Gives me something to do besides upper body, I've built a little strength in my lower body so I can actually do heavier weights effectively, and it's a SUPER fat burner, to boot.  I'm up to 164 as of yesterday [try to only weigh myself once a week].  Initial weight was 190, and I cut it down to 152, and have now gained 12 pounds of leaner muscle [not as lean as I want].  Anyway, haven't posted in a while, so thought I would share.  Keep it up, guys and gals.

Had a horrible weekend food wise. Really beat myself up over it today. Going extra hard this week as punishment. Gonna pull some 5-a-days like Cat.

Just finished The Pyramid. Are those the ones you're talking about? Because I NAILED IT! :) The ab sequence after the push ups burned like a mother fuger though. I want to try Speed 3.0 soon, might have to move a few things around.Speed workouts kill me and make my feet hurt.

Yes! You will get the ab sequence down, no worries. I do the pyramid abs every other day now. The push ups kill me. Good to know someone out there can get through that. Based off your current fitness level, you will probably conquer Gamma soon enough. But, man, those push ups and the shoulder work overall is something serious. Can't wait to hear how you like Speed 3.0.

Got T25 Gamma today. Started with Rip't Up.  Good stuff. 



and yeah too much beer and wine this weekend and one night I had a smores brownie and some of a cheese dip. I felt sick I guess because I'm not use to that crap. I did better this holiday then I typically do. 


I finished Gamma the day before I left for the beach.  It coincided with the holiday perfectly.  I'm starting the set over again with Alpha, and I did the Cardio disc today, and I'll probably add variations to increase the intensity since it is the beginner part.  


Good luck with Gamma.  Speed 3.0 is a KILLER.  And I don't know how anyone can get through the pyramid push ups.

Did cross fit last night followed by a yoga class. They had a bar and we did back squats to warm up. One each time and then you add more weight until you max out. I didn't realize that was how it worked or I would have kept going, I stopped at 105 lbs. could have done more especially since it was just one squat. I thought at some point we'd be doing more than one squat ( my silly assumption).  Then we did 16 minutes of pull ups and burpees (8 pull ups every other minute, 8 burpees every other minute). I used the band, so the pull ups were easy, burpees were fine, by the end we were drenched, It was fun, they split you in groups of two so you had a team feeling/competition feeling going on and a time limit. 


Overall I don't think it's for me because I like longer work outs with more variety however it even further my interest in getting a bar for my house. Squating with dumbbells feels very different. 


Maybe I'm misunderstanding:  You alternated pull ups and burpees?  Or you did 8 of one movement, rested for a minute, and then 8 more?  8 doesn't seem like a lot, but then again, I don't know how long that went on.


Sounds like a fun workout.  I feel like you got your variety in without knowing it, though.  After all, you said you had never done cross fit before, so there you go--something different.

So, I started eating more--a lot more--and it seems to have helped the belly bloat I was experiencing. I mean, I could feel and see that my waste was smaller and beer gut smelting away, but I have had the belly bloat coverin it up for about 3 weeks. Started eating more, and POOF, it goes away. Really starting to lift more now and am not hell bent on getting a 6 pack like I was before. That will come in time. Pics in 2 weeks.

I cannot do a freaking push-up. It's pathetic. Damnit.

Sent from my iPhone using CarolinaHuddle

Try these:

Low plank (bent elbow; 10 seconds)
Shoulder press (5 lb weights?)
Cheat push-up (w knees on floor too w your toes)

Focus on pushing up w your pecs, taking some strain away from your triceps and shoulders).

Everybody has to start somewhere. You will definitely see tremendous gains to start considering what I've gleaned from your posts about your current fitness level. Good luck!

My girlfriend and I just did a 4-day, 140-mil mountain biking trip up the C&O Canal Trail this past long weekend. Up til now, I had hit the gym occasionally, and I usually do the exercise bike every morning before work. But my workout routine is hardly "warrior" level.

We've resolved to keep up the activity-level since our trip. I took yesterday off to recover, but I'm trying to find a routine to settle into now. Any recommendations? And keep in mind, the goal is weight loss and definition, not max weight and bulk.

Most will tell you that T25/P90X/Insanity is the way to go. I know you say weight loss and definition is your goal, but that might change. I am on the T25 program and got down below 153. I'm a fairly athletic 6' and that is way to small. Had to start eating more. If I kept going and stayed with the program, I would be toned and ripped, but also weight like 140lbs. So, the program might satisfy your expectations as they stand now, but they are general plans that you can tailor to fit your needs. But for now, if cutting weight is your goal, then any of those options will work. The key: control your diet.

My right knee is being a little bitch again. I'm still working out but modifying like crazy when doing lunges and squats. I'm also
trying to choose workouts with very few lunges and squats.

I did yoga last night and took it easy but my knee was actually hurting afterwards whenever it was bent and i straightened it out. As much as I don't want to I may just not work out at all for 2-3 weeks, ice it like crazy and take naproxen every 4 hours.


Good luck with Gamma

As someone with knee problems, I know what you mean. I used to stretch for an hour a day (20x3). Did that for about 3 months. Now I'm stretched out to the point where I can move functionally with no pain. Running still aggravates my knees, so that's why I like the T25/Insanity stuff. My only piece of insight is to stretch, stretch, stretch, and then stretch some more. Leg presses to build muscle around the knees should help support and alleviate. Just my thoughts.

Started Gamma T25 a week ahead of schedule.  I have 5 more weeks and then I will be switching it up to Insanity or something.  My diet has been a little out of bounds, but I'm trying to bulk up and I had hit a wall anyway.  Hoping to see some good results over the next 5 weeks.

Proud of myself tonight.  Hit up the gym after I left the office.  Had my post-lift protein.  Met up with some co-workers for trivia--didn't eat or drink.  Got home and did T25.  Loaded up on a dense, rich smoothie.  The mirror can be a powerful motivator.  I feel so close to that coveted six pack that I can taste it.  One more week of T25 Beta following this week, and then it's on to 4 weeks of T25 Gamma.  If I'm not super ripped in a week and half, I will be in 5 and a half.
