  1. Someone with better PhotoShop skills than I needs to whip all these into one poster ... I would legitimately print it and frame it.
  2. Without Durant, the Hornets match up better defensively (as noted above). I wouldn't be surprised if Charlotte threw some combo of Henderson/MKG at Westbrook with some sort of soft double to force him to shoot jump shots. Further, look for a heavy dose of Al Jefferson as always... It'll be interesting to see if OKC matches up with Kantor or Ibaka defensively. I think Al has the advantage v. Kantor. If they play Ibaka on Al, look for Cody to test Kantor's athleticism. Finally, I hope Mo can have a nice game off the bench, I think we'll definitely need it. Boom Boom Clap!... err I mean, lets go Hornets!
  3. Yeah it makes sense..that being said I have gotten a great deal of results merely from the huge amount of exercises that use bicepts/tricepts, shoulders as secondary muscles..mainly the pushups and pull-ups. But, I would like to get stronger...even more than I am now. So dumbbells is definitely my next step.
  4. Just an update from my last post: I am starting my last week..(Week 13) of p90x. During the past month is when I have seen the most physical change. I can really see the difference when I compare myself now to my pre-picture. Like I said in my last post...my legs have seen the most improvement and my upper back. I did this run through with resistance bands, which actually worked better than I anticipated and are good for a small apartment and budget. That being said, I think I am going to invest in dumbbells and do it again. In the meantime I will do the workouts in an effort to maintain what I have and start it again after I get the dumbbells. I am thinking about asking for the dumbbells for christmas considering my poor grad student financial situation.
  5. Hey Guys, I have been following this thread, lurking and not posting, but I figured since its slow at work today that I would join in for those interested. Background: I began working out in highschool for sports..typically doing sport specific workouts. I played baseball and basketball, so needless to say I was all legs in highschool. Once I got to college and was not playing competitive sports anymore (just intramurals) I continued working out, but was burned out on squats, leg ext., and basically all lower body workouts. So i concentrated mostly on core/upper body, while doing cardio through basketball and/or running. After four years of maintaining a weight of around 165 lbs at 6'0 and minimal gains in the weight room I decided to change things up. I am no longer burned out on legs and I wanted to get in better shape even though I was probably in decent shape already. While being home two months or so i found out my father (who works out regularly) had P90X dvd's. He has not done the traditional P90X, he does a DVD once every other day in an effort to build his strength into one day doing the entire program start to finish. Granted he is 53. Anyway, I borrowed his dvds. I already had the total gym system for pull-ups and deep push-ups. I live in a downtown apartment with no gym...so I found a great deal on resistance bands on Amazon that were highly rated specifically for p90x (did not want to invest in dumbells..at least not the first time through). I have not missed a day since I started. Today is day three of phase three and I am on pace to finish October 13th. The biggest changes so far... My legs and back..holy frick. My posture is better, my knees (from playing baseball-catcher and running so much for basketball) no longer ache, my ankle (I broke/sprained left ankle in highschool) no longer aches, and I feel better all from drastic changes in my legs. Needless to say, plyo whooped my ass..and still does though I can actually get through it now. I am now a beleiver in Yoga...it was tough at first, but now i can get through about 95 percent of the workout. I have always had decent shoulders and tricepts naturally..not really sure why, but I'm sure it has something to do with the push-ups regimine i did in highschool and through my undergrad. That being said, I have seen changes pretty much everywhere in my upper body. I wake up in the mornings feeling sore as if I just started which is great to feel. I will probably take a few weeks after to do the "maintence" program and then maybe do it again, but with free weights. TL;DR - got frustrated with lack of results in traditional workouts, so i borrowed p90X from my father...two months and two days into it. Feel great, seeing improvements, and motivated to finish the final phase! thanks.
  6. btw...it smelled horrible which played into its authenticity
  7. Funny that I stumbled into this thread considering I just picked up this little diddy from Corners framing store today. Signed, game worn, that my brother won at an auction and gave to me for christmas a few years ago...signature is top of the "6" but you can't see it due to the glare.
  8. In the spirit of the day... :cheers2: A picture in today's paper here on campus @ LSU
  9. Thanks JR4P, I didn't want to get into the National title game, but Cam was told to take a knee at the goal line and he tried to sneak it in. He was upset after the game because he didn't play that well--they won the national title. It was all supposed to be his show, and when it became a team effort, he got pissed. The camera caught him without a smile (he always smiles) at the end of the game and he snapped at a reporter who put her hand on his shoulder for an interview. He is a big, fake jerk. If we sign him for 4 years, develop him for 2 and then he plays for 2, can you imagine what he will demand for his second contract? Icons are expensive. Thanks for the friend request too.

  10. The last thread about cam newton's comments, I agree with your viewpoint 100%.

  11. Final voting is open... vote for me!
