    Chest Exercises

    Your tri's do work harder on the reverse grip bench. But to say it isn't a chest exercise I don't feel is accurate. It clearly hits the clavical portion of the pec (top part) and really makes it jump out. It definitely has helped perk up and square off my chest. But I will say there is no way I can lift the same weight as a regular bench press. But I'm a lightweight anyway only benching 50lbs right now. I'm working on form and doing things correctly to hopefully not hurt myself. Way to many guys "lifting" more than they can handle at my YMCA

    Did anyone really vote FOR someone in this election? Or against someone?

    Snow crab in the insta pot

    I don't use butter to dip them in. Just the crab.
  9. Plan allowed deli turkey also. Get an insta pot. I swear it was made for WLS people. Throw a couple chicken breast in a cup of broth and in like 8 minutes you will have the juiciest moist chicken you have ever ate.
  10. It's my new super food. 1 cluster a cup of water in 4 minutes lunch. No carbs 16g protien and 85 cals. Love it.

    Pizza that is the ?

    I have not tried these being only 5 weeks post op, BUT my wife bought these little ultra thin protien pizza crust at HyVee. They are about 7" around and have 110 calories 9 carbs and 16 protien. You get 3 of them for $4 I think. My 2 kids age 7 and 9 both ate a whole one so they can't be that bad. Golden Home is the brand name.

    WLS is the easy way out

    Seen a post like this on another forum I visit. It has a fitness section. A guy asked about WLS and got th typical bro comments "it's not hard to lose weight less calories in more calories out" , don't rake the easy way out etc. I would wager 95% or more of the people who say these things have never been obese. Needing to loose 20-30 pounds in a different animal than needing to loose 150 pounds. And I'm always thinking if it was so easy to be fit wouldn't everybody be fit? No matter what we tell our selves no one wants to be obese. I never woke up and was like alright I'm 404 today kick ass. I realized if I didn't do something I might not see my kids grow up. Drastic times call for drastic measures
