I've been using the Bowflex since Labor Day pretty faithfully (2 days on, one day off for recovery). It still works well for me. I started with 80 lbs resistance per side, now I'm up to 135 lbs resistance per side (so the pull down bar or double arm exercises are 270 lbs resistance). My weight has remained static, but I've lost an inch off my waist and my chest and arms are noticeably showing more muscle mass and definition.

If anyone has suggestions for shredding the abs, let me know (I do ab raises with straps on my pull-up bar). Planks come to mind, but I'm not a big fan of them.

What are you looking to accomplish with your workout, Nerve Damage? You mentioned surgery, so whatever you've had would likely affect what you are able to do, maybe Dumbbells or resistance bands would work for you. Men's Health magazine is a good source for workout ideas, they should have some things on their website as well.

Kindl!


He read the play beautifully, went in, and won it. How happy is he to get the OT winner against Babs and the Leafs?

Saw that coming with the broken stick. Petr deserved better. You can't expect the goalie to wear a backpack and carry the team the way they did tonight.

Somebody punch John Keating in the yambag for jinxing it during intermission.

So you mean he is a Jar Jar kid?


Now that is just mean. :)

Yes - he would be.
 
Star Wars side note...Does 'Luke' become the next 'Darth'?


I think there is a good chance he's a Sith. Not in any posters, not in any trailers, you don't see the face of the Sith in the trailers. Yoda said if you leave before finishing your training it will lead you to the dark side. It's also the kind of curveball JJ Abrbams would throw.

Of course, Babs may feel like coaching in Toronto feels like being on the dark side. Still he is getting paid enough to afford the blood pressure meds.

Hopefully Luke and Drewbacca pick up a couple of points tonight.

I completely forgot teemu pulkkinen was on this team until the just said his name.


I'm with you there. Hopefully he pops one tonight.

That really sucks for Ferraro. Great for Jurco though?


Or it means they don't have to send someone down when Pavel comes back.

Yeah - ACL tears can happen in the most absurd hits/collisions.


You are right about that. Here's hoping Landon gets lucky and avoids anything serious.

Great heads up play by Larkin to send it back when four Leafs converged on him. Reimer wants that back I'm sure. How sweet is it that Hank scored 300 against the Leafs and Babcock? I'm looking forward to Franzen's Instagram congratulations message.

Zetterberg with number 300!

Nice save by Mrazek there.

So...Did you wear your 'pull-up' backwards?Quick - snag Lids a uniform, and some skates.....Nobody will notice.
 
Oh wait - he'll be our best Dman so - nevermind.


Put Lids in for Andersson.

And dude, that pull up comment almost made me snarf some Macallan.

Let's Go Wings! Game on! Light them the **** up!

Criss cross will make you JUMP!


Darren Mac will make you.... Oh wait, that's not how it goes. Very well played, brother. I was hoping someone would pick up on it.

I've gotta say, they did a pretty nice job with the HOF stuff so far.

Awesome GDT graphic as always! I've got burgers and my infamous bacon steaks on the grill for the game (bacon sliced at number 19 on the slicer, in honor of Stevie Y, about 4 oz per slice with dry rub that carmelizes into a bbq sauce as the fat cooks on the bacon). The Wings will be even more awesome than that against the Make Beliefs just to tick off Babs. Franzen's instagram will blow up the Internet. Jurassic Mrazek will stalk the puck like a velociraptor, rack up another assist or two. Hank gets number 300 (this... Is... Detroit hockey!). The team gets a total of 5 goals in honor of Lidstrom going into the hall of fame.

Let's Go Wings!

Anyone know appx. what time puck drop will be?


If it is a typical broadcast, 7:08. I think there will be a delay due to the HOF stuff.

Wow, they actually played Top Jimmy for him at the star of the game.... When did they start doing that?


Where's BoS? Time for the Khaleesi of butt-pats to do her thing.

While I love O Fortuna, the lyrics aren't really the best for the situation.


Wings Win! Cue the Van Halen (Top Jimmy off of side B on the 1984 cassette). Props to Larkin for the GWG.

Bad move by Glendening to ice it. Right after Hank had huge presence of mind to not ice it a few seconds earlier.
