    Okay Folks --

    I dug out an old workout journal of mine. With this program I will now share, I gained 1 3/4" in 4 weeks. It's a little rough: especially in the first two weeks. Trust me though. It works!

    Incidentally, I didn't come up with this myself. I read it in a magazine and tried it.

    Happy lifting,
    dukey

    [FONT=&quot]† Load a bar with 10-20-plus pounds more than you can lift for 4-6 reps of normal barbell curls. Sit on a flat bench and rest the bar on your thighs. Using a shoulder-width, underhand grip, curl the weight [/FONT]toward your shoulders.

    Hey no problem, Ruby Tuesday.

    I tell yeh, you'd be good to take measurements before and after. You don't have to share them, but you'll know whether the program works or not.

    Let me know if I can help.

    Ruby Tuesday, eh? Hah! I like that.
    I know I can bulk up quickly ... I've done it before.
    The funny thing was that I never got the concomitant increase in actual strength.
    I'm seeing a personal trainer on Wednesday evening to start a fitness program ... haven't been really in shape for 10 or more years.
    But I won't be going for bulk. It'll be after that lean sinewy look.:biggrin1:
    And I'll report to you, Dukey.
    Gladly.:cool:
    (Seriously, I'm not going too intensively this time. Time to get into a kind of condition that I can keep for the rest of my life. But I won't be pretending I'm an athlete.)

    Wow - this does look like an intense routine. But, 1 and 3/4" in 4 weeks. I've gotta give it a try too (I've been looking for a new routine to try).

    Okay, Dukey! I finally came back and copied the workouts. My schedule may make it difficult to be very dedicated, but I'll give it a shot... yours may not be the only alabaster cantaloupes around the site soon!
